I’m continuing my series of daily Brain Health Awareness Month blogs, partly in an attempt to motivate myself to be more disciplined with the approach to living with dementia!
As a long time practitioner of Transcendental Meditation (now more than 40 years), I’ve experienced the benefits of regular fasting since I was 21.
In the search for information about brain health, regular fasting also seems very important. I used to fast every Sunday, and then one a month for three days, and definitely benefited greatly from it.
I’m not sure if as I’m much older now I could manage 3 days, but am trying to get back to weekly. On a Bredesen-style (self managed) protocol, I usually fast 16 hours between the last meal and the next day’s.
This is an interesting article on a study about the benefits on our immune system of fasting for 72 hours.
