24 Hour Fasting Boosts Stem Cell Regeneration

04 June 18

New research suggests that 24 hour fasting has significant benefits beyond weight loss. The research that was conducted on mice showed that restricting calorific intake for just 24 hours activates metabolic changes in gut stem cells causing them to enter into a regenerative stage and thereby heal the gut lining. This is exciting because rejuvenation slows with age, however, the change in stem cells was activated in both young and old mice. Research at MIT have discovered, albeit in mice, that fasting for just 24 hours greatly improved gut stem cells' ability to regenerate, in both young and old mice. It appears that fasting activates a metabolic change in the gut causing it to switch from burning carbohydrates to burning fatty acids and stimulating stem cells to become more regenerative. Fasting has long been associated with longevity and now, it would seem that science is catching up and explaining why it should be so. As we age, the regenerative capacity of our stem cells slows, which is why older people heal more slowly. This also holds true for the gut lining which affects metabolism and absorption. If fasting causes the same change in the human gut, 24 hour fasting could prove beneficial to older people, those with damaged intestinal lining through medication, infection or lifestyle. A word of caution - consult your doctor if you are diabetic and considering fasting.

Chiropractic and Succeful Outcomes with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

03 June 17

Here at the Orchard Chiropractic Centre, Jersey we strive to give the best possible care and support to our patients. Latest evidence shows that chiropractic care has a valuable role in assisting people to live longer and most importantly, healthier, active lives. Chiropractic can help improve the quality of life of patients with diseases that cause irreversible changes to the body such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease ("COPD"). In a systematic review of the scientific literature Dr Mark Studin and William J Owens found that there was clear evidence to support their clinical and observational findings that spinal manipulative therapy (chiropractic adjustment) delivered to patients with COPD increased tidal volumes, forced vital volume, forced expiratory volume and residual increased volumes. So what does this mean for the patient? For the patient, this means improved quality of life due to improved lung function.
