November 2-4, 2018 Fasting Weekend in Michigan

Just a reminder that the semi-annual fasting weekend is coming up at the Rudolph Steiner Health Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan. This is a medically supervised group juice fast offering not only the support of your comrades, but lots of other supportive activities that enhance the effects of juice fasting. Take walks in nature, listen to uplifting music, and learn to meditate. Check their webpage for more information at steinerhealth.org.

TEDx Talk on the Benefits of Fasting

Neuroscientist, Mark Mattson, speaks out about his research findings in a TedX talk available on YouTube. He is the current Chief of the Laboratory of Neurosciences at the National Institute on Aging and a professor of Neuroscience at The Johns Hopkins University. He is also a huge proponent of intermittent fasting.

Dr. Mattson tells us that fasting absolutely reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. It takes 10-12 hours of fasting to deplete the glycogen stores in the liver, so even short-term, less than one day fasts ARE beneficial. Benefits are even derived from limiting eating to an 8-hour window each day. In his study of mice, nerve cells are consistently more active during fasting. He even says, "Intermittent fasting enhances the ability of nerve cells to repair DNA.”

As Dr. Mattson tells us, fasting will never be studied by the well-funded pharmaceutical companies because they can't make money off of fasting. I feel we owe a debt of gratitude to scientists such as Dr. Mattson who work to expose the truth about what really promotes health.

You can watch the YouTube video here. And you can read more about Mattson's work at the National Institute on Aging at https://www.nia.nih.gov/research/labs/lns.

Ben Marcus' Article on Water Fasting

If you want a front seat view of Ben Marcus' 6-day water fast, he wrote a wonderful and hilarious article about it for GQ Magazine online. I just found this pearl and want to share it with everyone. It's called "How the Terrible, Insufferable Six-Day Water Fast Made Me a New Man" and is a really good quick read on the "joys" of fasting.

Ben went to the TrueNorth Health Center in Santa Rosa, California, which means you can pick up some tips and insights from how this professional fasting facility operates. From bedrest to feeling awesome, Ben describes his daily journey through his 7 day stay and the health improvements he gained.
