New trends in intermittent fasting and time restricted eating have taken the stage as holistic techniques that not only help with weight loss, but can restore entire physiologic systems of your body. It’s reported in the medical journal Cell Stem Cell that restricting all food intake (aside from water) for three days can actually reset a damaged immune system.
Where medicine’s approach to health favors addition – more prescriptions, more procedures, more therapies – studies like the one above support the concept that ‘less is better’ when it comes to restoring health and maintaining it for a lifetime. Many health issues resolve not because of what you ADD to your body, but because of the bad stuff you SUBTRACT from it… and Chiropractors have been leading the charge of ‘subtracting for better health’ since its inception.
On top of your list of ‘subtractions’ should be the regular detection and elimination of spinal Subluxations – the subtle nerve disturbances that throw your body out of balance and put you in a state of dis-ease. That, in combination with healthy caloric restriction methods like intermittent fasting, can reset your body and your health back to factory settings.
