Which types of fasting boost your immune system?

2021-03-08T17:59:01+00:00Health|

Studies show that fasting has incredible benefits—increasing mood, energy, mental clarity, weight loss, lowering inflammation, and boosting the immune system, helping it better defend against pathogens, viruses and bacteria.  There are three steps you’ll want to take to create this heightened immune response.  Step 1: Become Metabolically Flexible The first step to boosting your immune system is becoming metabolically flexible, this means you can easily go in and out of being a fat-burner and a sugar-burner. Metabolic flexibility has been shown by science as a valid approach to “dampening” the COVID-19 virus. Yet only 12% of American adults are metabolically healthy! How does metabolic flexibility help defend against viruses? Viruses do not have their own metabolism. This means that

Autophagy Dysfunction And Immunity

2021-01-05T23:02:22+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

Top 3 Ways to Boost Vitamin D Levels

2020-08-13T00:59:23+00:00Health|

Last week I explored the connection between Vitamin D levels and optimal health. What we know now is that when we boost our Vitamin D levels, we boost our immune system which makes it more powerful to fight off viruses, including viruses like Covid-19. However we also know that 50% of the population is vitamin D deficient. Here are the top 3 ways to boost Vitamin D levels: Boost Vitamin D by absorbing it through your skin: You can do this two ways, directly from the sun or through red light therapy. If you’re planning to get vitamin D from the sun, you should spend 10-30 minutes per day, several times a week out in the sun ideally during mid-day

Can Vitamin D Protect You From Covid-19?

2020-08-13T00:59:34+00:00Health|

Most of us grew up hearing, “go get some sun, it’s good for you!”, knowing that sunshine was one of the many ways we could get our daily dose of Vitamin D. Knowing that 50% of the population is deficient in this Vitamin, it has become an important topic today in preventing illness, viral infections and creating a robust immune system. According to a new study released July 15th, 2020, the "association between low levels of Vitamin D and increased risk of developing several immune-related diseases and disorders, including psoriasis, type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, tuberculosis, sepsis, respiratory infection, and COVID-19, has been observed”. The connection between Vitamin D levels and optimal health: When in active form
