Hi all! Has anyone here tried intermittent fasting to control symptoms and improve their health? When my alk phos creeped back up into pre URSO levels, I decided to try time restricted feeding because some of the research shows that when the gut is rested regularly for more than 12 hours, repair of the cells lining the gut takes place and inflammation goes down. I have been following the same healthy Mediterranean diet, but I only eat now between 12 pm and 6 pm, giving my gut an 18 hour rest daily.
The very unexpected result is much less joint pain and almost ZERO digestive symptoms. I also had developed a small inflammatory toe infection that completely cleared up! I'll be getting my enzymes repeated in a few days and will report on those. I was just wondering if anyone else had tried intermittent fasting and/or read the studies on it. I'll post some if anyone here is interested.
