Powerful Protection for Women Against Tumors – Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
Research suggests time-restricted feeding (intermittent fasting) drastically reduces a woman’s risk of breast cancer, in part by lowering insulin.
Intermittent fasting releases ketones into your bloodstream, which help preserve brain function and protect against epileptic seizures, cognitive impairment and other neurodegenerative diseases.
By improving your insulin sensitivity, intermittent fasting can both prevent and reverse Type 2 diabetes, which is rooted in insulin resistance.
When intermittently fasting, it’s critical to avoid processed foods, particularly refined carbohydrates, sugar/fructose and grains. Focus on vegetable carbohydrates, healthy protein in moderate amounts and healthy fats such as butter, eggs, avocado, coconut oil, olive oil and raw nuts.
My new book, “KetoFast,” presents a modified form of water-only fasting (in combination with a cyclical ketogenic diet) that is easier to do, and provides greater benefits because you’re able to do it more frequently.
