Fasting is proven to be good for you!

A recent study in the journal Cell Press illustrates how cycles of fasting induces immune system regeneration by awaking stem cells from dormant state to one of self-renewal. Fasting for 4 days a time first lowers white blood cell counts but then flips on the regenerative switch to signal stem cells generation for blood and immune system building. As we grow older and our immune system declines, we become more susceptible to diseases like cancer.  By accomplishing fasting cycles we can kill older and damaged immune cells and thereby signal the body to regenerate new ones. The study called this finding “a remarkable effect in promoting stem cell-based regeneration of the hematopoietic system.” I call it “old-timey medicine” like great grandma did. She knew the benefits – just not the why-fors and how-comes. Now you know.

Yes, it is actually true!
