FASTING AND IMMUNITY

Actually oxidation is a double-edged sword. Energy releasing activity in the body is always accompanied with the release of Free radicals

That is why Upanishad says Anna Maya Moha- Get rid of your interest in Food. Take it only moderately for living. The food you eat will turn you to a food for someone one day, The fire that we cook our food will burn us to ashes. It is not the fault of the fire.

Nutritionists may criticise Fasting as Unhealthy. But new research suggests that starving the body kick starts stem cells in to producing new white blood cells which fight off infection.

This is particularly beneficial for people who are already suffering from damaged immune system and elderly people whose immune system are weakened.

The fasting prompts stem cells to create brand new white blood cells-immune system regenerated.

So if your immune system is damaged by chemotherapy or aging, fasting can generate literally new immune system.

Prolonged fasting forces body to use stores of glucose and fat and also breakdown a significant portion of white blood cells.

This depletion of white blood cells induces changes that trigger stem cell-based regeneration of new immune system cells.

Fasting also will reduce the enzyme PKA which is linked to ageing and a hormone which increases cancer risk and tumour growth.

When you starve, the system tries to save energy and one of the things it can do to save energy is to recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed especially those that may be damaged.

When we start fasting the white blood cells count will go down then blood cells come back.

Fasting can mitigate the harmful effects of chemotherapy

Fasting also reduces the number and size of cells.

There is  no evidence that Fasting would be dangerous while there is a strong evidence that it is beneficial.
