Fasting has been practiced by religious faiths and prescribed by doctors for centuries. Philippus Paracelsus, 15th century physician, believed "fasting is the greatest remedy – the physician within". New research is providing an evidence base confirming the ancient theories around fasting and health. It is now supported that fasting is an effective way to optimize the way we age and prevent chronic disease from developing. This lecture will give insight into the scientific evidence behind how fasting can improve health and slow the biological processes involved with ageing.
