The Importance of Intermittent Fasting

Good Morning Everyone, I don't do this very often, write
a comment on here. I get some hate mail accusing me of
being a fraud. DEATH & HEALTH, to me, are not issues to
be fraudulent or take lightly.

My main reason for this blog is to inform as many people
as I can, that not only cancer, but a lot of other diseases,
can be and are CURED.

Why wouldn't I be accused of being a fraud. What I'm NOT
saying (Directly) is our medical profession is all about money...NOT
CREATING GOOD HEALTH. That in itself is a real threat.

My main message is: We don't have to be "SICK OR DIE"
because treating diseases verses CURING diseases is 2
different subjects. I AM PROOF that curing works and is
cheaper, less suffering (if any) and available. You can
keep your head in the sand (wanted to say another comment)
or take on a new outlook to living.

Thanks for reading and passing on this blog.

               GOD BLESS


REMINDER: In The Archive is all of the articles that I
have posted since I started this blog. There is TONS OF
INFORMATION there for you to learn from. It's the type
of information that not only saved my life...It also has
given me a better quality of life.

The Importance of Intermittent Fasting

    In my experience, the vast majority of people are adapted
to burning arbs as their primary fuel, as opposed to burning
fat. One of the most effective strategies I know of to become
a fat burner is to restrict your eating to within a six- to
eight-hour window, which means you’re fasting for about 16-18
hours each day. This upregulates the enzymes that are designed
to burn fat as a fuel, and downregulates the glucose enzymes.
This kind of intermittent fasting plan can be a useful modality
to help you make the transition to a ketogenic diet.

        That’s the way it started in the clinic for children
with epilepsy. Basically, the child is given a 24-hour and
sometimes 48-hour fast  water only. And then the ketogenic
diet is introduced in relatively measured and small amounts,
Dr. Seyfried says.

        Your body transitions naturally that way. Intermittent
fasting is actually a very strong component of the approach.
A three-day fast is uncomfortable, but it’s certainly doable. It
gets your body into a new metabolic state, and then you can
apply these therapies. The hardest part, I think, of this fasting
is the first three to four days, depending on the individual and
how many times they’ve done this.

        That’s basically trying to break your addiction to
glucose. The removal of glucose from the brain elicits the same
kind of problems or events as you would if you were addicted to
drugs, alcohol, or something like this. You get malaise,
headaches, nausea, lightheadedness. You get all the kinds of
physiological effects that you would get from withdrawal of any
addicting substance. I look at glucose as an addictive substance.It’s
an addictive metabolite. Your brain is comforted by having glucose;
your body is comforted. And when you break that glucose addiction,
you have these particular feelings.

        ... Fasting certainly has remarkable health benefits to
the body: strengthening the mitochondria network system within
the cells of your body. As long as the mitochondria of your
cells remain healthy and functional, it’s very unlikely that
cancer can develop under these particular states.

    Unless you have a very serious disease, I believe it is
best for most people to implement intermittent fasting slowly
over six to eight weeks rather than a three-day complete fast.
You begin by not eating for three hours before you go to bed,
and then gradually extend the time you eat breakfast until you
have skipped breakfast entirely and your first meal of the day
is at lunch time. Of course, you are only consuming non-starchy
vegetables for carbs, low to moderate protein and high-quality
fats. One of the things I’ve noticed is that once you’ve made
the transition from burning carbs to burning fat as your primary
fuel, the desire for junk foods and sugar just disappears like

The Potential Role of Protein in Cancer Formation

    Glutamine--one of the most common amino acids found in
proteins is another interesting aspect of cancer that Dr.
Seyfried is still investigating. In his opinion, most
oncologists who do cancer metabolism recognize that sugar
(both glucose and fructose) is the prime fuel for driving tumor
growth. However, mounting research also indicates that glucose
and glutamine together act powerfully and synergistically on the
growth of tumor cells.

        These two fuels work together in concert to provide a
continual growth, he says.

    One of my early mentors was Dr. Ron Rosedale. He taught me,
about 20 years ago, about the importance of insulin control and
then, more recently, about the importance of reducing protein
intake, for this very reason. Most Americans likely eat far more
protein than they really need, and this excess could be a factor
in cancer. The Paleo approach makes sense on many levels,
especially with regards to intermittent fasting and lowering
your glucose levels. The Paleo approach is very clear about
reducing grains and any food that raises your blood sugar. But
there are, of course, two other macronutrients left: fat and

    Many Paleo followers are overly concerned about getting high
amounts of protein, which could increase your glutamine and
branched chained amino acid levels, which in turn tend to
activate mTOR. In some, that could be problematic. According to
Dr. Rosedale’s research, the pathway known as the mammalian
target of rapamycin (mTOR), is controlled by lowering your
protein intake. This pathway may be another metabolic pathway
that helps control and prevent cancer growth.

Calorie Restriction Is a Key Part of the Equation

    Dr. Seyfried, however, is more cautious in his evaluation
of mTOR and reducing protein for cancer prevention. In his view,
the most important aspect of cancer prevention and treatment is
the intermittent fasting, or overall calorie restriction, which
includes eating less of everything, period. But while
calories from carbohydrates should be virtually eliminated,
calories from protein just need to be reduced, while most need
to increase their intake of healthful fats to get a more ideal
ratio of fat to protein. As far as the specific types of fats
recommended, Dr. Seyfried uses medium-chain triglycerides,
i.e. coconut oil, butter, macadamia nuts, and other types of
saturated fats, which is what I’ve long recommended as well.
The saturated fats are converted to ketones much more readily than
polyunsaturated fats, he explains.

    So, keep in mind that for cancer prevention and treatment,
the actual calorie restriction is an important part of the

        We did some studies on this with our model of glioma...
The mTOR in our model was not dramatically changed by these
metabolic therapies. But I know others have reported it, and
this could be an important component for certain other kinds
of cancers. But my limited work with this did not demonstrate this
to be a major issue, at least in the glioma model that we
looked at. We showed that you could give animals a high-fat,
low-protein diet, as much as they want (zero carbs in this diet),
and their blood glucose was just as high or higher than the mice
that were eating the protein-carb diet.

        It was more or less related to the total consumption of calories.
Most calories boil down to glucose. Proteins will be metabolized to
glucose. Carbs are metabolized to glucose; fatsare not... We don’t get
any therapeutic benefit either inepilepsy or cancer when we allow
the animals or people to eat so much of these high-fat diets as they
want. We get no therapeutic benefit.

        Therapeutic benefit comes from the restriction of the
calories in the diet. The ketogenic diet or a low-carb, low-
protein diet is simply a way to take the sting out of a
therapeutic fast. Because as long as the glucose and ketones
can get into the metabolic range (and you can do it with eating
small amounts of a high-fat diet rather than therapeutic
fasting), then that just makes people feel a little better about
how they’re doing this rather than feeling that I’m starving
to death.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

    I recently interviewed Dr. D’Agostino who is another cancer
as a metabolic disease researcher. He published a recent paper
that shows a phenomenal synergy with a ketogenic diet and the
use of hyperbaric oxygen for cancers that have metastasized.
These types of cancers are notoriously difficult to treat. I
would strongly encourage anyone struggling with this challenge
to consider this type of therapy.

Thank You  Dr. Mercola

  1. You have reason!
    I was fighting against a cancer stage 4.I think it is very important that family support to win, because i was very weak;really helped me participate in one group of affected by cancer, so my mood improved, also helped me a lot a medical adviser in (they are doctors),this is important .I recomended not surrender, because sometimes the first treatment does not work as me, and sometimes change doctors it is necessary.Read positive thinking books gave me more energy.During my cancer,i changed my diet,now i eat vegetarian organic food(now i not eat meat).I think is a set of things that help.
