I just wanted to share this article on using fasting to rebuild the immune system.
There are obvious implications for the discussions here, and we know fasting is god for you, but now there is scientific evidence for the beneficial effects of fasting on the immune system.
This study suggests a damaged immune system could be completely regenerated through periods of fasting.
Historically all cultures used fasting and it is generally said that someone should fast for as many days a year as they have been alive. I'm 40 so should aim for 40 days fasting this next year.
I have completed plenty of juice fasts, and live on a mostly juice diet, but I think I might give this "no food fast" a go for a couple of days.
I know it'll do me good because all the other fasts have been amazing for my body, but not always for my mind.lol The clarity and energy they give you is amazing.
Usually I need 8-9 hours sleep a night but if I fast I am literally awake after about 6 hours looking around thinking bedtime is for wimps!!!lol
I once did Dr Norman Walkers 40 day juice fast for arthritis and it was an experience for sure.lol
Anyways, please enjoy the article and try fasting for yourself. This method states 2-4 days are needed so most people should be fine with that. However, it is always best to conduct fasts under the care of your doctor.
