5 Reasons to Consider "Fasting" as Part of Your Health Strategy (plus, important updates!)
By Biggi Fraley • Issue #37 • View online
First, I owe you an apology. At the beginning of this year I made a last-minute decision that I was able to communicate to my podcast listeners, but you, my loyal readers, are only hearing about after the fact.
One of my New Year resolutions is to finally conquer that Nutrition Therapy degree that I have been putting off for the past 2 years! This demands additional time and focus from me, so I decided until I finish the degree (just a few months), I will publish my podcast and newsletter on alternating weeks. This will allow me to still keep in touch with you weekly, but cut my workload in half for now.
So, there you have it. Now I would love to know what are your New Year resolutions? What are you struggling with? And, what can I do to support your efforts? Just hit reply and let me know! 😃
In the latest 🎤 podcast episode, I shared what kind of obstacles you may encounter that keep you from achieving your goals, and how to deal with each one of them. Make sure to listen in, and catch those obstacles before they catch you off-guard! 💪
There have also been some new additions to my “Commit to Change” course. First, I have added a special January only bonus (learn more on the sales page), and second, I have created a completely new, extensive sales page for the course, so that you can learn what the course is about, whether it is right for you, and what you can expect to get out of it.
Last, find an exciting new event below starting next week on the topic of fasting, which I just learned today in one of my Nutrition Therapy lessons can extend your life and slow down the aging process!
Please, read on, and enjoy! ❤️

Upcoming Event: Fasting Transformation Summit - Starts Monday, January 14th
If there’s something you can do that every great sage and spiritual leader throughout history has done AND it would cost you nothing to have significant impact on your overall health and vitality, would you do it?
Fasting, as a healing strategy, costs no money and has an incredibly rejuvenating impact on our immune system and cellular mechanics.
Btw, I think everyone should take a moment to understand fasting, so join me for Dr. David Jockers’ free Fasting Transformation Summit!
The greatest challenge is to mentally break free from the societal programming that tells us we need 3 meals a day and snacks in between.

Here are 5 reasons to consider fasting as part of your health strategy:
1. Fasting Improves Immune Regulation
Fasting allows your body to put more energy and focus into the process of effective immune regulation. Fasting while drinking water and cleansing beverages flushes out the digestive system and reduces the number of natural microorganisms in the gut.
2. Fasting Stimulates Cellular Autophagy
Fasting also stimulates the process of autophagy, where the body breaks down old, damaged and abnormal cells to recycle them for energy. The process of autophagy is part of the innate immune system and utilizes pattern recognition receptors to identify viral cell invaders. (Hey, this was just covered in one of my lessons today too. 😉)
3. Fasting Improves Genetic Repair Mechanisms
Research has shown that cells have a greater lifespan during times of food scarcity and famine. Intermittent fasting enhances cellular rejuvenation by acting on certain genetic repair mechanisms – you use less energy to repair a cell than to divide and create new cells.
4. Fasting Improves Insulin Sensitivity
Thousands of years of food scarcity led our bodies to develop a protective mechanism to adapt to alternating phases of food abundance and scarcity. During times of food scarcity our cell membranes become more sensitive to insulin. This is especially important when food is scarce because it ensures that every bit of food be efficiently used or stored.
5. Intermittent Fasting and Chronic Diseases
Individuals with autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and Crohn’s disease, have seen a tremendous improvement in symptoms with the incorporation of intermittent fasting. This process reduces the hyper inflammatory processes these individuals undergo and allows for more normalized immune function.
Incorporating periods of intermittent fasting and using the strategies learned at Dr. Jockers’ Fasting Transformation Summit can help the body become stronger and more resilient against the development of chronic disease.
That’s it for this week. Hopefully, you got some great new ideas for improving your health and arthritis symptoms. As always, remember to give me your feedback below, so I can continue bringing you content you enjoy and use! 😘
