  • What About Fasting?

    March 17, 2019

    I have a video today that will, hopefully, enlighten you as it did me.  The video is about fasting, but before you leave the page, know that studies have been done with people are are taking chemo.  The studies show that our bodies have been programmed, genetically, to help us out when we are fasting.  Cancer cells will be weaker while normal cells will be stronger.  

    But no one wants to give money to provide studies on fasting.  Sometimes we just can’t take the easy route, can we?  Fasting was helpful to mice and helpful to people. That shows that over time, people have been programmed to allow fasting to help us with disease processes or sickness.  More study needs to be done with other disease like RH, MS, and many others.  

    Today’s health tip is really simply to let you know what is going on in this area.  If you haven’t ever fasted, it will be enlightening. We are so afraid of not having food! Yep that is me!   

    One woman in the video was not feeling very well on day 4 of her fast.  And when she got up on day 5, she felt so good. This video is informative and I hope you will watch it and then email me telling me how much you enjoyed it!!
