intermittent fasting

Our bodies have healing power. Imagine having a broken bone and putting a plaster. After a while, the bone will join itself even though there’s no medicine in the plaster. If you cut yourself, the skin stitches back together within days.

Intermittent fasting is one way the body can heal itself back after the damage we’ve caused with our modern living, but we rarely allow it to this work because we constantly eat.

As soon as you eat something, the body stops whatever it was doing to heal, and uses all its power to digest and get rid of the food. It’s good to give your digestion a break from time to time and let intermittent fasting do its thing.

Make sure to occasionally refrain from eating or drinking anything for 16 hours. This isn’t so hard because you can schedule the fasting window according to what best suits you. If you decide that your last meal is at 8 PM, your next solid meal should be at noon the next day. This way most of your fasting occurs while you’re asleep and the benefits are still there.

    Almost all religions have a form of fasting in their rituals,and it’s known for a long time that fasting improves health, they maybe didn’t know how it affects health, but if they felt better they connected it with occasional hunger.

    Yes, this is absolutely a way to heal your body. Earlier when I was suffering from Pancreatitis doctors used to suggest me to opt for intermittent fasting to heal the body faster. They used to refrain me from eating or drinking anything for a day at least then slowly and steadily they used to start the liquid diet along with other medications. So, think this intermittent fasting is an effective way to give your body ample time to heal and come back to the original position.

    It’s true that fasting offers a wide range of health benefits, but it can increase risks for some diseases such as type 2 diabetes. Last year’s study showed that Intermittent fasting may raise insulin levels, damage pancreatic cells, and increase the amount of abdominal fat. It may be popular, but intermittent fasting may harm your metabolic health if it’s done too often and recklessly. It’s good,but in moderation, as with everything else.
