DOUSE the Inflammation Fire AND Fight High Blood Sugar!

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

I don’t have to tell you that out-of-control inflammation is NOT your friend.

What starts as a normal, healthy process to fend off dangerous invaders in your body can quickly fan into the flames of chronic inflammation.

The problem is almost no one has short-term inflammation. Instead, most folks in our modern society have almost permanent low-level inflammation.

Then, before you know it, you’re on the road to disease… including diabetes.

But there is something you can do.

This simple trick DOUSES the fires of inflammation AND fights blood sugar too!

Believe it or not, controlling inflammation could be as easy as trying intermittent fasting.

Before you run off this page thinking you can never fast, let me tell you that it’s not as hard as the mainstream would have you think…

And the benefits are downright amazing.

Recently, scientists from Intermountain Healthcare Heart Institute performed a study looking into the benefits of intermittent fasting.

In the study, 67 patients with high LDL cholesterol (the “bad” one) and diabetes were divided into two groups. For four weeks, one group was told to fast two days a week, drinking only water. Then, after 22 weeks had passed, they were told to fast one day a week (still only drinking water).

And at the end of the study, the folks who’d done regular fasting had improved insulin resistance, and higher levels of a substance called galectin-3.

In other studies, galectin-3 has been linked to calming inflammation in your body. If you raise levels of galectin-3 in your body, inflammation naturally drops.

Now, if you’re struggling with the idea of fasting, you’re not alone. Many people have problems thinking about going without food.

One way to make it easier is to eat dinner at around 5 or 6 o’clock, then go to sleep and not eat again until the dinnertime the next day. This often works better than going a whole day without eating.

You can try what the people in this study did, or you can try something much easier: compressing your eating schedule.

All you do is set aside a certain part of the day when you eat, and a certain part where you don’t. Most people eat between 14 and 16 hours a day (or whenever they are awake).

But if you can drop that to 10 hours a day, you’re still intermittent fasting.

You may experience some temporary side effects such as headaches, irritability, and upset stomach, or other digestive problems. Other common symptoms are bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth, and acne or other skin problems. The good news is, these types of symptoms usually occur on the first day or two and then become less intense as time goes on.

 

P.S. A new study shows that intermittent fasting could also help slow this type of cancer. Find out more right here.
