5 Ways Paleo Complements Intermittent Fasting

5 Ways Paleo Complements Intermittent Fasting

The science is in – conscientious fasting is an exceptional tool to restore health! Short periods of not-eating (including sleep time) recalibrate insulin sensitivity, reduce inflammation, regulate hormonal balance, reinforce fat-burning metabolism and awaken the body’s natural ability to remove damaged cells while safeguarding youthful, efficient cells. Intermittent fasting replicates the unpredictable food patterns of our ancestors and forces the body to initiate its internal survival mechanism:  autophagy.

The #1 reason individuals avoid fasting is that they don’t like feeling hungry! Surprisingly, Paleo-eating dismantles the debilitating effects of ravenous hunger.

5 Ways Paleo Heals a Leaky Gut

Leaky Gut Syndrome (also known as intestinal permeability) is a major contributor to ill health and chronic conditions. Leaky gut occurs when the digestive tract develops gaps between intestinal cells. Once holes are present, this normally selective membrane can no longer regulate which particles are absorbed into the body. Foreign particles can freely enter the blood stream and cause inflammation and damage anywhere in the human body. Additionally, these intruders force the immune system into overdrive…draining energy, depleting nutrient resources and creating unintended health consequences.

Even Hippocrates said it:  “All disease begins in the gut.”
