How intermittent fasting helps sleep

Have you ever tried fasting? Trick question. We all fast naturally while we sleep and a growing number of people are extending that period to change their daytime eating habits as well.If you stop eating before sunset, you’re encouraging your body’s natural sleep pattern by “circadian fasting.”When you go to bed with an empty stomach, the internal clocks in your digestive system align with the clock in your brain so that all your systems agree to go offline for sleep. This kind of fasting—which you can accomplish simply by eating dinner early and avoiding snacks before bed—can unequivocally improve your sleep.If you’re …

Tips for better digestion

Dietary changes can be quite taxing on your tummy.

How fasting prevents mitochondrial aging

A large body of evidence suggests that persistent dietary fat overload causes mitochondrial dysfunction and systemic metabolic gridlock. Mitochondrial and lipid metabolism in skeletal muscle (SkM) are severely affected upon persistent high fat diet (HFD) leading to premature tissue aging. Here, we designed weekly cycles of fasting (called as time-controlled fasting, TCF) and showed that they were effective in limiting mitochondrial damage and metabolic disturbances induced by HFD. Specifically, TCF was able to prevent the decline of adipose triglyceride lipase (Atgl), maintain efficient mitochondrial respiration in SkM as well as improve blood glucose and lipid profile. Atgl was found to …

Warnin signs your body has toxins

Toxemia is an abnormal state of the blood and tissue originating from an unhealthy lifestyle that produces stress. It’s not just about the toxins from the outside that we take in, but from the toxins that our body produces. This theory, which comes from Natural Hygiene, explains a lot of unexplainable diseases. You don’t need a medical test to tell if you’re toxemic. You can identify toxemia through fatigue, laziness, depression, and weakness, and other symptoms. These symptoms first show stress, then, when they are more advanced, they indicate toxemia. Laboratory tests and diagnoses cannot always measure these subjective sensations. That is why medicine often …
