Brain Detox Fasting

Fasting Improves Brain Detox. 

A study published in Science in October 2013 and entitled “Sleep Drives Metabolite Clearance from the Adult Brain” found that we need to sleep specifically so that the brain can focus on a built-in detox that happens each night. 

Lead study author Dr. Maiken Nedergaard summarizes in a statement: “the restorative nature of sleep appears to be the result of the active clearance of the by-products of neural activity that accumulate during wakefulness.”

The study states:

…the restorative function of sleep may be a consequence of the enhanced removal of potentially neurotoxic waste products that accumulate in the awake central nervous system.Your Glymphatic System: A nightly brain detox

You probably haven’t read much about the glymphatic system; however it is a vital function in your body. In 2012, researchers identified this new maintenance system called the glymphatic system, which uses the cells’ mitochondria to remove cellular waste from the brain. It was found that the clear cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) acts as a drainage mechanism, much like soapy water in your dishwasher. Basically, your brain cells’ mitochondria power the CSF to clean your brain and nervous system every night.

If you improve your mitochondrial function during sleep, you’ll turbocharge your brain’s maintenance system and get more cleanup done in fewer hours of sleep.

 How Fasting Supercharges Your Brain’s Clean-Up System

The core principle of fasting is that it improves metabolic health and improves the function of mitochondria which power all aspects of our body, from repair to activity.

In this episode, you'll learn how to engage in fasting specifically to supercharge your glymphatic system.

Initial Health Consultation

How much would you give to sit across from an expert who was trained to help people just like you transform their health? Well, for anyone struggling with health-related issues, the price would be quite high and worth every penny. But for a short time, for a small number of people, I’m offering that opportunity…without charge.

That’s right, with my Initial Health Consultation, you have the chance to work with me one on one, absolutely free. Typically a session like this is $300, but I’m waiving the fee for anyone who applies today.

Because I hold these calls personally, there are very few spots available, so if you’re serious about improving your health as well as achieving your goals and would like the guidance and support of a trained expert, use the calendar provided to apply for your session now.
