Provocative Fasting Comments Triggers Special Savvy. Rewarding to listen to ‘like mind’ experts, such as Dr. Dan Pompa. Recently his enthusiastic three-part series on fasting exudes a capable, functional and practical approach. He literally endorses my thinking about 90%.
BUT to my thinking there are two key missing pieces:
Maybe because of his youth the potential impact is just not yet there! Point one is his comment that he just fully fasts only twice a year, over Christmas and Spring!
My opinion, and thorough research endorsement of/by Dr. Valter Longo, is that Stem Cell revitalization, as you age, must follow a very careful formula and twice a year just does not do it!
For all over 35 years and particularly 60 onwards more frequency! Our stem cells need a minimum maintenance of once every three to four months,
and then only after shaking them up with a lead up of every month for three months in series!
Dr. Jockers video at the bottom. he is also brilliant and casually young on disciplined fasting! There is the importance of consistent full fasting as we age so long as we are appropriate candidates!
Both do not discuss the magic of quantum longevity. To my mind, that is where the real excitement lies!
Fasting Mimicking Diets concept of Dr. Valter Longo. Over three decades of dedicated research. The realization that cancer patients are perhaps best off with a fasting mimicking diet. He is trying to improve abject failure in the track record of chemotherapy and radiation.
Concept to give cancer multiple knocks by combining Fasting along with the application of other traditional therapies. The resulting effect is multi-faceted indeed.
But if you are not a cancer patient, and qualify to try Full Fasts, then embrace the full Fasting benefits as Fasting Mimicking Diets tend to soften full scope of Water Fasts!
