Longevity diet or fasting diets

I have severe wheat/gluten intolerance, and also low level wheat allergy. I have had asthma and allergies since early childhood, over the last 3 years the allergies have considerably worsened. I have been reading about fasting as a way of rebooting the immune system and would appreciate opinions in here.

Hi RoseRed

As far as I can see, the scientific research was done with mice and does not seem to have been tested on people yet. It was found to help in relation to chemotherapy. Not sure that this would translate to anyone with an Autoimmune problem, although there are websites which are claiming that this would happen. There seems to be more of a case for fasting to help improve longevity.

If you are looking at ways to improve health, perhaps have a look at something like the Autoimmune Protocol Diet.
