Fasting improves chronic inflammatory disease, reduces inflammation: study New research has shed light on the benefits - both for longevity and fighting disease - of intermittent fasting. In a study that appeared in Cell, Mount Sinai researchers discovered that fasting reduces inflammation and improves chronic inflammatory conditions such as celiac disease without affecting the immune system’s reaction to acute infections. While acute inflammation is a normal immune process that helps fight off infections, chronic inflammation can have serious consequences for health, including heart disease, celiac disease, diabetes, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and inflammatory bowel diseases. “Caloric restriction is known to improve inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, but the mechanisms by which reduced caloric intake controls inflammation have been poorly understood,” said senior author Miriam Merad, MD, PhD, Director of the Precision Immunology Institute at the Icahn…

However, at my last doctor’s appointment, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and was given medication. I don’t like the idea of having to take this medicine forever—is there something I can do to improve my lifestyle that might improve it? A High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is very common; it affects about half of adults. It’s more common in men and older adults, in those who have a family history of high blood pressure, and in people with other health conditions such as sleep apnea and chronic kidney disease. Because it typically has no symptoms,…
