Intermittent Fasting Benefits (inc. Killing Cancer Cells) – Dr. David Jockers

Ty Bollinger: Do you ever recommend fasting
for health and for cancer patients? Dr. David Jockers: Absolutely! And you just
brought that up. And so just talking about the ketogenic cleanse, I mean it is a fast.
And I’m a big fan of intermittent fasting. It’s something I do every single day. And I
think it’s a critical piece of a cancer killing diet. So for myself, really when we
break down fasting, I want all our listeners to understand this, I look at a building phase
and a cleansing phase. So our building phase is a time between our first meal of the day
and our last meal of the day. So the typical American they might eat at 8:00 am and finish
eating at 8:00 pm. So it’s about a 12 hour building phase. And the cleansing phase would
be time from our last meal to our first meal. Okay. That’s like a one-to-one ratio. In
our society today we’ve got so much toxicity that it’s that much more important that we
have a greater cleansing phase than building phase. On top of that, the great thing is
when we’re on this ketogenic diet our hormones become balanced. Insulin and leptin, which
is our—it’s our satiety hormone, so it helps us say that we’re no longer hungry. We’re
satisfied. They become very balanced. Our body becomes very sensitive to it. So we’re
really not as hungry. And so for myself I like to have anywhere between a 16 to 18 hour
and sometimes even a 24 hour cleansing phase on a regular basis. Okay. Like we’re doing
this interview here. Its 11:30–12:00, I haven’t eaten anything yet today. I worked
out this morning. And you know what, my blood sugar is extremely stable. I feel really good.
I feel really mentally clear. Now I’ll typically eat around 1:00pm or so and then finish eating
by, let’s say, 6:00–7:00pm. And so that’s really my building phase. And so I’ve gotten
all the nutrients I need but my body’s also been able to really cleanse and detoxify as
I’ve gone through this cleansing phase. On the cleansing phase like, for example,
the fasting this morning, I’ve drank probably about a half gallon of water so far today.
So water is key because I want to move toxins out of my body. I don’t want them to just
recirculate as they’re being released, as my body’s breaking down fat cells.
And so intermittent fasting is a very, very powerful strategy that’s been shown to improve
brain function, improve lean body tissue so your percentage of muscle to body fat. It’s
been shown to basically to improve almost every aspect of your health. And so very,
very profound when it comes to killing off cancer cells in your body too. And sometimes
we’ll recommend longer fasts and longer cleanses, but I think something that most people
can do – unless you have a state of adrenal exhaustion or extreme adrenal fatigue, which
some people do. Unless that’s the case I always highly recommend going on a ketogenic,
intermittent fasting lifestyle because of the profound effects it has on destroying
cancer cells in your body, regulating your hormones, and improving overall brain function.
So very profound effects with that.

    I'm sorry but this is biological nonsense.Our own white blood cells and indeed all the cells in our body react exactly the same as cancer cells during 'fasting'.Cancer originates from our own body,so to say that fasting can kill cancer cells is ridiculous.where is the proof? the studies?

    This is encouraging, as I've been intermittent fasting for close to 3 yrs. I started after I was getting so bloated by evening even tho I wasn't eating after supper, had a healthy diet etc. but obviously my liver and gallbladder were compromised, so I tried IF (I was extremely skeptical and resistant at first). It took 3 months for my stomach to go down flat – there's no going back. I have lots of energy in the morning – I'm so used to this plan and love it! By the way even though I've gone through some severely stressful situations I'm able to continue doing IF.

    I so agree and have lived like this for many years and don't foresee quitting this lifestyle ever.
    Except, that I don't like to eat so late so I stop eating at 4pm…..6 or 7 is way too late and close to bed time for me. Figure out what's best for you but I always recommend clients to stop eating a few hours before going to bed and the earlier the better.

    Glucose on fasting does not go down to 0. It goes down to 60. So, ALL organs, including cancer cells, gets glucose during fasting. But why cancer cells die? Because fasting removes carcinogenic toxins from your body. Cancer cells "help" us to metabolise toxic waste that other "pathogenic" microbes can't process. Remove that carcinogenic toxins from your body and cancer cells will die. As result your body EAT cancer cells during fasting 😉


    I can understand most of it, but I will never ever get to think that starting eating at 13.00PM is ok, and stoping at 18.00-19.00PM. You should always eat at morning. Out organs and diggestion are tuned to work better in the morning.

    Good message. Although the music at the end distracted a bit. I quit visiting the website when it became more involved with moneymaking and less involved with health options because I don’t have a lot of money but I have cancer

    Water fasting works better. 5 to 7 days of water fasting and you get a brand new immune system and expose Cancer cells to it. Look it up. People and dogs have been healed of Cancer in 21 days. It is in the journals.
