Autophagy Dysfunction And Immunity

2020-11-22T17:01:33+00:00Health|

Earlier this week I discussed a new meta analysis titled Intermittent fasting, a possible priming tool for host defense against SARS-CoV-2 infection, has made some impressive findings about the benefits of fasting, specifically autophagy fasting, in promoting health and preventing COVID-19.   As I dove deeper into the science, I found more and more research around “autophagy dysfunction” and what that means for your immunity and lung health. Given the state of the world right now, our health and immune strength is incredibly important, and autophagy plays a vital role in clearing out dysfunctional parts of cells, so the cell can be more receptive to making energy and participating in a healthy immune response.  First, a refresher on autophagy: Autophagy

Autophagy and Your Immune System

Hot off the press! A recent meta analysis published in October 2020 titled Intermittent fasting, a possible priming tool for host defense against SARS-CoV-2 infection, has made some impressive findings about the benefits of fasting, specifically autophagy fasting, in promoting health and preventing illness.   Directly from the study:  “[...]strengthening immunity along with maintaining a healthy living is the best way to survive this disease. As a healthy practice, calorie restriction in the form of intermittent fasting (IF) in several clinical settings has been reported to promote several health benefits, including priming of the immune response. This dietary restriction also activates autophagy, a cell surveillance system that boosts up immunity. With these prevailing significance in priming host defense, IF could

Ketosis versus Autophagy: What’s the difference?

2020-11-16T21:16:11+00:00Health|

This is a great question I got in one of my live Q&A sessions that I thought was worth further exploration. What is the difference between ketosis and autophagy? First, let’s start with ketosis. Ketosis is a state of healing that signals your body is burning fat for energy.  This is why most people come to fasting and the ketogenic diet, for weight loss. But there are so many other amazing health benefits to ketones. Ketones travel up to the brain and enhance neurological healing. Ketones increase GABA and calm the brain. Ketones also have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body.  How do you get into ketosis? Well, the answer to this question will vary for each person, depending

4 Ways to Use Autophagy Fasting to Slow Down Aging

2020-05-22T14:25:17+00:00Fasting Techniques, Nutrition|

Autophagy fasting? What’s that? Well, for starters, have you noticed that everyone around you is fasting? Curious what the craze is about and why so many people are giving up food? The credit for much of the excitement needs to be given to one man: Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi. In 2016, Dr. Ohsumi won the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for discovering a self- repair mechanism in our body called autophagy. It turns out that when you put your body into a starvation state, the cells go looking for food… and they find that food by feasting on the toxins that are already inside the cell! It’s an incredible self-detoxification process that our bodies are naturally born with. So how […]
