Use This 3-Day Fast To Boost Your Immune Function




Fasting has a benefit that not many people know, but recent studies suggest that prolonged fasting between 48 and 120 hours can benefit your immune system. It can activate pathways that improve your fight against harmful toxins and stress.


The process of fasting can also help activate the regeneration. It can signal pathways to hematopoietic stem cells that help produce more blood and also improve your immune function.

Why does fasting have such an interesting impact on the body? During the time your body is deprived of food for longer periods, it tries to save energy, and as a result recycles old and damaged immune cells, giving room for new ones.


Fasting and its varied health benefits

Research has found that fasting can help lower IGF-1 growth hormones that are linked to cancer, tumor growth, and aging. The findings of these studies can be further linked to fasting and chemotherapy, where chemo alone proved to be less effective.


Fasting may reduce autoimmunity of the body, and reduce the risk of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.


It may also reduce overall inflammation in the body.  Fasting for only 24 hours can deactivate the human NLRP3 inflammasome, which is in charge of activating inflammatory responses in the body.


The impact of fasting and what you should expect

Food these days is readily available, which makes it difficult for us to bring on a fast easily. That is why we need intentional fasting to reduce the stress on our digestive system and body.


When food is so easily available, we need to do intentional fasting to reduce the stress on our digestive system and body. We’re here to share a 3-day fast so you can learn how to rest, repair and renew your body.


Remember that the process when done for the first time can be a new experience and beneficial for you. However, it can also be stressful to the body, leaving you feeling low on energy, and well, typically hungry. These unpleasant symptoms are normal so don’t panic when you start feeling them. Let’s get started with the first day of the fast.


Day 1

For those who are not used to keto-adapted diets, sugar may be your primary source for fuel. At the same time, during your 3-day fast, your body will learn to adapt to using fat as fuel, and that will result in increasing your ketone levels. This will happen in the second half of your first day of fasting, which means that your body is slowly becoming keto-adapted, and this means higher levels of cellular cleansing.


Since it’s your first day of fasting, you’re going to experience fatigue, mental lethargy, hunger and cravings. You will also feel moody, experience increased urination, get a headache, and disturbed sleep. This is a result of your body adapting to the process of fat burning inside you instead of sugar that was usually burned. As a result, your body is undergoing detoxification and cleansing, repairing months and years of damage.


Day 2

Welcome to the day your gut flora gets cleansed where the bad bacteria are removed, balancing your microbiome. By day 2, the processes including cellular cleansing, autophagy, hormone optimization, and detoxification, a rise in human growth hormone (HGH) to preserve muscle mass, and a stem cell rise to help cellular repair are accelerated. What’s even more exciting is that your DNA is reset, turning off ‘bad’ genes related to increasing inflammation and chronic degeneration.


So, day 2 isn’t going to be any different than day 1, but your hunger levels may diminish. However, you are still going to feel emotionally drained. You may still experience more brain fog, fatigue, and mood changes. Your body is undergoing self-cleansing and getting rid of bad bacteria, fungi, and toxic substances. You may notice a yellow, white or even black tongue, or skin rashes; stay calm.


You may feel colder than normal as your body begins to down-regulate your thyroid hormone. It means that your body is developing the habit of needing less thyroid hormones and insulin to function properly.


Day 3

On day 3, you will experience a further increase in the process of autophagy, HGH, and stem cells. Your ketone levels will further increase, while blood sugar levels become more balanced. This means that it’s time to feel better as you notice a reduction in pain and feel more energetic. What’s happening here? Your brain is using the increased level of ketones as its source of energy to make you feel mentally better, more alert and sharper. While breaking your fast as this is the last day, you would be feeling better than ever.


To make sure that you can prepare for your 3-day fast, go on a ketogenic diet and practice intermittent fasting at least two to three weeks before your 3-day fast. Those adapted to keto-diets can better absorb the shock of lengthy fasting periods. They may still experience fatigue and the other symptoms but your body can still take it.
