Fasting - A Cure


Fasting - The Cure for Obesity, Diabetes, & Heart Disease

Our own body has the ability to heal itself. In order for this to happen we must turn on the healing mechanisms and turn off its overdrive state. Insulin Growth Factor or IGF-1 is similar in structure to insulin and works together with human growth hormone to reproduce and regenerate cells.

When we eat, we stimulate insulin and IGF-1 and that drives our cells to constantly divide and grow too fast to efficiently repair the damage to our cells. Researchers have recently found that when IGF-1 levels drop our bodies slow down and shift from dividing cells into repair mode. The body starts repairing existing cells and DNA damage is more likely to get fixed. This protects us from age related diseases.

Researchers have found that fasting brings down the levels of IGF-1 and it turns out that not only will it help you lose fat, but it will also give you protection from heart disease, cancer and diabetes, the three big threats to our health.
