Fasting 101: A Restoration Healthcare Primer on Medically Supervised Fasting

If you find yourself cutting back on your intake of food, either because you’re choosing to ration your meals or you’ve read about the benefits of intermittent fasting, please read Fasting 101: A Restoration Healthcare Primer on Medically Supervised Fasting (see file to the right). As you’ll learn in this primer, fasting is the intentional abstinence or reduction from consuming some or all food, drink, or both, for a specific period of time.

The practice has as many health-related benefits as it does widely held but largely false beliefs. The primer offers an easy-to-read overview of what actually occurs to your body when you fast. In addition, we dispel myths — or “wrong thinking” — about the act of fasting itself. And finally, we offer suggestions related to the various methods of fasting, as well as information on where to go to learn more about fasting itself.

Hear About a New Level of Care and Compassion from Arabella

After being passed around from doctor-to-doctor and multiple emergency room visits, no one knew what was causing Arabella’s nerve, joint and muscle pain, extreme fatigue and inability to walk. Was it multiple sclerosis? Was it Lyme Disease? What it something else? A friend’s recommendation led her to Restoration Healthcare, who confirmed it was Lyme Disease.

She describes the experience as being engaging with high standards of care from people who actually care about their patients. The clinic explored every aspect of Arabella’s health including nutritional status, hormone balance, immunity and even the emotional toll she and her family experienced prior to coming to Restoration Healthcare. “It’s a different level of compassion,” she says.
