Ultimate ‘authority’ on Fasting has to be Dr. Valter Longo!..but given the powerful bureaucracies, legal & political world of US…particularly California…this professor works at the University of Southern California…to survive these minefields, and also negotiate academia, with it’s also associated politics…& remember can be a vicious ‘backstabbing’ funding world all of its own!..’Longo Longevity‘ …needed in more ways than one! Obvious, as one sees his deft handling of questions, particularly respecting two pet subjects: the combination of Chemo therapy with Fasting techniques, and colleagues command lead and research in rapidly developing science of Longevity. Longevity optimized with essentially rejuvenation of aging cells with ‘ground zero age’ stem cells. He uses Fasting techniques, including Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD), to replicate a real fast. This done by tricking the body into a ‘belief’ that it really is in fasting mode! This is done over five days with the first at a reduced calorie intake of 1100 followed by 800 for the subsequent four days. Of real import: is a reduction proportionally of just 10% protein with an almost equivalent balance of carbs and fats. He ‘conditions’his patients over approximately four months and thereafter the FMD is relegated to 2 to 3 times a year…with the effective Longevity results based on extensive lab work, and now being assessed with humans as volunteers. Fasting Ground Zero Stem Cell Therapy?! Dr. Joseph Mercola is someone who risks ‘openly’ with his developing views and more significantly…’personally’ adopting his own advice…he is really his own willing and convinced guinea pig! In other words he does not hesitate to personally experience the cutting edge of research as he understands it! He has been an advocate of partial fasting for a long time, and has even written his own best seller. But note worthy…this is a fast growing arena, consequently he is continually modifying and fine tuning his approach…adaptation to the point that an updated edition of his own publication already in short time of publication appropriate….as he himself has intimated. Similarly he is on the cutting edge with exercise, particularly High Intensive Interval Training (HIIT) and High Intensive Strength Training (HIST). Both HIIT & HIST are themselves dynamic and developing concepts, but resulting modification and adaptation of thought and opinion invariably means progress. A medical and legal overriding caveat is insulin resistance…huge percentage of the US population are pre-diabetic or diabetic, and any ‘modules’ that affect insulin levels bring risk, so with that warning: consult a physician and get those blood tests and supervision! Cautions also mirrored by both Longo and Mercola… Fasting may indeed amount to a ‘diplomatic health passport‘ with huge upside: unlocking naturally & realizing longevity strides! Fasting Ground Zero Stem Cell Therapy?! Reasoning: fasting is profound metabolic intervention and is parallel to achieving a ‘ground zero’ stem cell therapy (from for example the birth umbilical cords discarded resulting in Caesarian sections, as opposed to adult ‘stem’ cells from adipose or bone marrow donor tissue, particularly if the donor is 60 s or 70 s old!…in the latter regard personal view that: Stem Cell infusion because of intrinsic aging does not ‘make’ for longevity!). Back to reciprocating Stem Cell production within our own capacity from Fasting techniques: As Mercola says:...’like getting a free stem cell transplant… (remember the right kind!)…and it massively up regulates autophagy and mitophagy.‘ Key: is stimulation of mitochondrial biosynthesis during the refeeding phase…this almost miraculously allows our bodies to regenerate using inherited DNA up links and pathways that we are endowed from our ‘learned “expressions”‘ over eons of natural selection. It is for these reasons that fasting not only tackles type 2 diabetes (and type 3…brain diabetes!) but co-incidentally obesity, and cancer, particularly fast growing cancer cells, BUT also includes the potential upside of: ‘miracle’ of Longevity! Huge plus for aging population: There is a strong suggestion that fasting can prevent and even reverse dementia as it assists in the removal of toxic waste. But really profound: the dramatic increased activation of autophagy means disposal of old protein including fast growing cells...and this includes cancer cells and the refeeding phase means growth hormone increases and the dramatic rebooting or boosting of the rebuilding of new proteins and cells. It is literally a reactivation and acceleration of our body’s natural capacity to cyclic renewal! Fasting Ground Zero Stem Cell Therapy?!
