Scientists from USC have found that fasting, for as little as 3 days, could regenerate almost the entire immune system. Fasting “flips a regenerative switch” signalling stem cells to create brand new white blood cells. When we starve, our body, in its attempt to conserve energy, recycles damaged immune cells, damaged either by chemotherapy in cancer patients or aging.
The Telegraph recently carried an article about the research findings of scientists from the University of Southern California (USC) on the remarkable benefits of fasting. They found that fasting, for as little as three days, could regenerate almost the entire immune system. This could be a boon to people suffering from damaged immune systems, such as cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and aged people.
Fasting “flips a regenerative switch” signalling stem cells to create brand new white blood cells, essentially regenerating the entire immune system. Scientists believe that when we starve, our body, in its attempt to conserve energy, recycles a lot of the unused and damaged immune cells.
With a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or aging, fasting cycles can generate, literally, a new immune system.
commencer par une journée et ensuite deux jours et encore après trois jours, le troisième jour étant le plus difficile car la crise d'acidose arrive à ce moment là et n'est pas toujours évidente à gérer pour un non-initié :)))
J'ai bien essayé de le faire, mais je pense pas que je suis fait pour ça. J'ai du l'abandonner après un jour et demi!
Natasha, I'm from Cajun country. We enjoy food ourselves. Yet even, the elders practiced " La Purge' the purge, is a way of cleansing the digestive system, etc. Changing the types of food you eat can be considered a form of "fasting" in some circles, like eating a carrot instead of a cookie, or having a salad for a day instead of "processed Burger" etc. I once met a group of ladies who, for a whole day sipped tea or wine, and cut back on their meals for that day once a week. Again, have wisdom with discretion before doing anything extreme. In fact, "avoid the extremes....Buddha" Peace &Freedom.Together we can change "our World"
Be wise, use discretion, and remember, "I post some things that I have experience with or have done some amount of research in. Thanks for the comments. Buddha once stated that we should test out the information that comes our way or at least give room for some things to be proven before final acceptance. This being said, Life is about growing up, maturing our mental faculties to discern or have discretion when choice becomes mandatory for a path or direction to follow. Your individual stability depends on sound judgement when making these decisions. Peace &Freedom.Together we can change "our World"
Green tea with lemon, a bit of cinnamon & ginger is good between drinking lots of mineral water and any other herbal tea. The important thing is to stay hydrated...\U0001f33a
Coffee makes my body feel like my sugar is dropping & when I'm not drinking water it's usually tea until it makes me feel ill
People should be very careful with this. True it is good for the body but if you have any type of sickness, just make sure you know what you are doing. Read and find out things before you do it.
I intend to do this next week.. Thank you for the reassurance in the proof you have given that fasting really does work!!!..\U0001f33a
That's pretty cool. I might have to try it. I just get dangerously angry when I'm hungry but it sounds like it is really worth doing.
are you talking, just water? I just finished reading One spirit medicine, and this book suggest just water, but I was hoping maybe something a little less painful :) like a juice concoction. anyone?
I drink a dirty chai (with coffee). I grind all the spices myself and it helps me greatly. I cool it in the refrigerator. I also use royal jelly.

I have psoriasis - an autoimmune disease - only time I've ever been clear was when I was in the hospital once after an accident and on an iv for over a week. Def think something I eat affects it or maybe this fasting thing rings true?
Why does this not sound like a good idea?... Might just be me and my love for food but sounds like a horrible idea.
Cardiac and sugar patients should consult their physicians before undertaking such 3 days fastng sessions.
Sounds like a good diet. We have info on water diet and few others - http://smallreports.com/
I have fasted for almost 2 days before but I continued to drink water. It was very hard due to working and tending to chores and toddlers. But I felt significantly better after.
