Are you struggling with hair loss when you are fasting? I frequently get this question and I recently did a Youtube video, can fasting cause hair loss, to help provide some answers to those of you that are experiencing hair loss. Hair Loss and Minerals Healthy hair follicles need a balance of these 7 vitamins and minerals present in the body: Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, vitamin E, Iron, Selenium and Zinc. When these nutrients are out of balance, hair loss can occur. Why might your nutrient balance be off? It usually comes down to one of two things:  A mineral deficiency in the body, where you’re not getting enough of the 7 essential nutrients, whether through foods

Can fasting increase your happiness?

Given the times that we are in, I think the world could use a little bit more happiness, and really, who doesn't want more happiness in their life? So, can we use fasting to increase happiness? This week I'm diving into that exact question on my Youtube channel. Check out my newly released video on how we can use fasting to increase happiness, as Part 3 of my Fasting and Hormones Series. We know from neuroscience that certain nutritional deficiencies and neurotransmitters imbalances can affect our levels of perceived happiness. Science also shows us that we can use fasting as a tool to improve the functioning of these neurotransmitters, in turn raising our levels of happiness.  There are 4

Can Intermittent Fasting Help You Lose Weight?

2020-10-17T00:57:33+00:00Fasting Techniques, Health|

You may have seen a recent study making headlines titled, Intermittent fasting doesn’t help you lose weight, claiming that “a 12-week UCSF study of 116 overweight people found no statistically significant difference in weight loss between people who restricted their eating to a specific eight-hour period every day and those who didn’t.” This is not the first time fasting has been challenged. Fasting is truly an art form, requiring a deep understanding of how fasting can be used as an effective health tool. So when articles like these come out, I like to dig deeper into the science and methods used by the researchers, to understand how they came to the conclusions they did.  Watch my full video where

Helping Adrenal Fatigue with Fasting and Detoxing

2020-10-05T03:00:17+00:00Health|

It’s common to experience adrenal fatigue at some point in your life. Your adrenal glands release cortisol in a daily rhythm, normally peaking in the morning, just before waking and continue to drop until bedtime. However stress causes cortisol to spike outside of this normal daily rhythm. The rise isn’t a bad thing (and actually could be a good thing, keep reading to find out why), as it helps us deal with recovery and ability to adapt following a stressful event.  What happens though, is that depending on what else is going on with your body, organs and toxic load, adrenals can become overworked and overwhelmed. This is when you may begin experiencing symptoms of adrenal fatigue.  Common symptoms

Benefits of Oxytocin: Improved Fasting, Weight Loss, and Insulin Resistance

2020-09-24T16:08:39+00:00Health|

Let's talk about the many benefits of oxytocin. Oxytocin, also called the feel-good or “love and connection hormone” is a secret linchpin to so many mechanisms in our body. Originally discovered in 1906, scientists believed the primary purpose of oxytocin was for reproduction, mother-child bonding, lactation and appetite regulation. However in 1963 studies on oxytocin began to reveal that oxytocin had several other powers as well, specifically that oxytocin had a metabolic effect on the body. So what are the benefits of oxytocin on the body? A meta analysis of oxytocin revealed that when people had higher levels of oxytocin in the body, it improved glucose uptake, insulin sensitivity and induced the breakdown of fat!  So, what this tells

Let me say this loud and clear, women should be fasting. There are a lot of myths and misunderstandings about how fasting affects women, so I wanted to dive in today into the science and research around women and fasting.  In a meta analysis of over 44 peer reviewed studies done on fasting and women, the study concluded that “fasting can be prescribed as a safe medical intervention, as well as a lifestyle regimen which can improve women’s health in many folds.” Read that again! Specifically, they found 5 different categories where fasting helps women. Cancer This meta analysis looked at 3 different types of fasts and how they affected cancer. The first was the fast mimicking diet, made

We know that fasting has tremendous health and anti-aging benefits, like stem cell production, DNA repair and neurological benefits that combat mood disorders and Alzheimer’s. However new research suggests that there is a specific type of fast that can increase longevity!  In a human study done in 2019, scientists at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) and Kyoto University found that fasting may “boost human metabolic activity, generate antioxidants, and help reverse some effects of aging.” 3 Specific Anti-Aging Benefits of a 58 hour fast 1.

Improve Athletic Performance with Fasting

2020-09-10T14:38:11+00:00Fasting Techniques, Health|

We know that fasting can turn on good genes and turn off bad genes, like those linked to liver, breast, lung, colon and brain cancer. So I wondered whether fasting could have the same effect on genes that promote athletic performance. The answer I got was yes, fasting can improve athletic performance!  A study on Russian elite endurance athletes found the group of athletes had an increased frequency of the UCP3 (mitochondrial uncoupling protein 3) gene compared to a control group. Simply put, more UCP3 equated to better athletic performance.  They found that two types of fasting could activate the gene expression of UCP3 independent of genes necessary for lipid transport and oxidation in skeletal muscle. Specifically, it found
