Science News: Intermittent Fasting Can Help Reverse Diabetes

Living in this technology-driven age, it’s easy to acknowledge that when an electronic device, such as a cell phone, is powered off and then rebooted, the object functions better. From updates to fixing glitches, it’s an effective process for optimal usage. The same truth can be applied to the human body. No, one can’t simply power-off the workings of the human systems, but it could be possible to “reboot” through intermittent fasting.

What is intermittent fasting?

Intermittent fasting is the adjustment of your eating pattern, cycling between fasting and feasting for a determined period. Yes, it’s crucial to consume nutrient-rich foods, but with intermittent fasting, the emphasis isn’t placed so much on what you eat but when you eat. This regulated method is about purposefully skipping meals and eating only within a designated window.

Why should I intermittent fast?

There are several health advantages that can be derived from this time-conscious eating approach. One such benefit associated with intermittent fasting is the possible reversal of chronic conditions such as diabetes.

Intermittent fasting can help those with diabetes.

Scientists are finding that alternating cycles of eating and fasting could actually reboot the body. In a recent study, published by Cell, researchers were able to reverse the symptoms of diabetes and trigger pancreas restoration in mice using intermittent fasting. During the experiment, the mice’s pancreas shrunk and then regrew, regenerating the beta cells responsible for storing and secreting insulin. The starving of the bodies’ system seemed to reset the production, replacing damaged cells with healthy ones. This is great news for those struggling with diabetes.

So how do I intermittent fast?

It’s important to discover and implement the plan that works best for you and your schedule. One popular technique, the 16:8 method, involves skipping breakfast and eating meals within an 8-hour window, for example noon to 8 p.m., followed by a 16-hour fast. Another choice is the weekly fast, involving a fast for a 24-hour period once or twice a week.   

Not only could intermittent fasting reverse a diabetic condition, but it could also improve other areas in the body such as reducing inflammation, promoting brain function, improving heart health, and inducing various cellular repair processes. Because intermittent fasting helps one consume less calories, it is an effective way to reduce weight and shed belly fat.

So power-up your body with intermittent fasting and be prepared for amazing results.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.

Homeostasis

Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.

Stressor

Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
