5 Phases of Fasting
“To eat when you are sick is to feed your sickness.” – Hippocrates
Studies have found that intermittent fasting (that is, consuming nothing other than water or green tea) enhances the ability of nerve cells to repair their DNA, protects DNA from damage caused by chemotherapy, and switches on a number of DNA-repair genes. Fasting is something humans have been doing for millions of years, and it turns out it’s really good for our DNA.
Perhaps in regard for its powerful, multilevel benefits, fasting is integrated into every major religion around the world.
It is the primary published and research-supported approach to detoxification, and offers several other well-documented benefits, including immune system regeneration.
Periodic fasting is absolutely critical to human health and disease avoidance.
There is not a person alive who can’t start by fasting at least 6 hours a day.
Start where you are.
“Instead of using medicine, rather, fast a day. – Plutarch, Greek historian
