Fasting is a Firewall Against Virus & Disease

Rich Habits

In a comprehensive study on Fasting, the National Institute on Aging in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Louisiana, found that Intermittent Fasting dramatically improved overall health by boosting the immune system’s ability to defend against viruses, bacteria and diseases such as cancer.

In this study, twelve hours of fasting was found to the optimal number.

Dr. Andreas Michalsen, Charite University Hospital, in Berlin, used Intermittent Fasting on patients suffering with chronic health issues. Dr. Michalsen’s study found that fasting for fourteen hours straight increased the creation of the number of new, healthy replacement cells, helped increase cell repair functions as well as waste removal functions in the body (getting rid of damaged cells).

So, for those who are concerned about their health and battling infectious viruses, Fasting will boost your immune system’s ability to overcome such viruses, if you come into contact with them.

    This is great info to know. I’ve read about the benefits of intermittent fasting. Since I sleep for a number of those hours, it doesn’t seem to be a chore. Except for weekends, I strive for 18 hours fasting each weekday.
    Thanks for sharing, Tom.

    I been practicing OMAD for 8 months now and I’ve never been sick with flu even though my household has not invited it (two times) pre COVID. My rotator cuff partial tear, which is already a year old, healed in 3 months without physical therapy. Also, my knee pains disappeared almost in a week. I’ve read a lot of information about intermittent fasting. Your post seem to say that stem cell activation start at 12th hour of fasting but Dr. Pelz said it’s at hour 24. Authophagy at 18th hour and xenophagy latter than that. However, these are already sick people so it might be that it started earlier. Great post again.
