Have y’all seen this? It’s pretty interesting. Essentially, fasting for 2-4 days seems to kill off old, lame immune cells and spurs regeneration of new, healthy immune cells. This stem cell-based regeneration has been shown to be helpful in chemo patients (increased tolerance and recovery) as well as auto-immune disorders (including MS). Of course, speak with your doctor before trying anything like this, but I know I’m going to chat with my naturopath about it. Only a couple days can’t really hurt, but can possibly be extremely helpful!
There was also an article accompanying this one that shows that meat and cheese eating in middle-age may just up your cancer risk, equating it to that of long-term smoking. As if I need another reason to stay away from meat & cheese!
