Video Explores Intermittent Fasting to Enhance Metabolism

Intermittent fasting and restricted caloric intake is powerfully neuroprotective. Short-term fasting stimulates autophagy, a metabolic process that eliminates cell waste that may be responsible for many of the effects of aging. Studies have demonstrated that fasting can help prevent heart disease, speed fat loss, as well as slow or reverse aging. Researchers have found that the autophagy process is often defective in cancer, infectious diseases, immunological disorders and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease (PD).

Lifestyle, Metabolic Enhancements for Parkinson’s

Neurology Solutions Movement Disorders Center Medical Director Dr. Robert Izor elaborates on the positive outcome of lifestyle and metabolic enhancement for Parkinson’s disease. Metabolic enhancements for neurodegenerative disorders, also known as MEND, is a medical protocol designed to combat age-related decline and lessen disability. The MEND approach incorporates optimizing overall lifestyle and nutrition, stress reduction, sleep, hormone levels and a variety of other factors.
