Dr. Jimenez Fasting Health and Functional Medicine. Fasting is the abstinence or reduction from some or all meals, drinks, or both for a period of time. Fasting helps cleanse the body from impurities.
Fasting Health Benefits:
There are diagnostic tests to determine a fasting state.
Ex: a person is believed to be fasting after 8-12 hours have elapsed since their last meal.
Metabolic changes from the fasting state start after absorption of a meal, usually 3-5 hours after eating.
