stress resistance by fasting

Since 1980, the practice of fasting has been a part of public health policy in Russia, and it is highly praised and practiced in Germany. U.S. researchers have undertaken research in this field of science and do not hesitate to talk about the benefits of fasting in cases of cancer, especially in reducing the side effects of chemotherapy.

doctors, from the late 19th century, tested this principle of starvation to fight against disease.

Today, documented medical results reveal incredible data about this practice to heal debilitating or serious illnesses. However, the practice of fasting as an effective therapy is not yet officially recognized in many countries.

According to the US National Academy of Sciences, other health benefits include stress resistance, increased insulin sensitivity, reduced morbidity, and increased life span

alternate fasting: one day fasting, one day feeding or fasting two days per week (the 5:2 diet)

Alternate-day fasting may be an alternative to prolonged diet restriction for increasing the life span.
