How Does Intermittent Fasting Help Fight Cancer?

Share this:

Some tumors grow slowly; others grow and spread fast. Different treatments work for different types of cancers, but one thing that lowers the risk of all cancers and improves the treatment and outcome if you do have cancer is adopting a firm intermittent fasting schedule.

When you eat morning, noon, and night, you are putting constant demands on your body. That’s the big problem. The average person eats from five to ten times a day over a fifteen-hour period. Where’s the downtime? When you follow the 16:8 schedule, you are creating the needed downtime, and you’ll ramp up your immune system by honoring your body’s biological rhythm. The sixteen-hour fasting zone gives your brain and your body the time it needs to rest and repair. If you are eating from dawn to dusk, your immune system is weakened. When that happens, your immune system’s ability to find cancerous cells stops working. But if you are intermittent fasting, you’ll give your body the power to fight off cancer successfully.
