The pain relieving specialist is asked: I have to consider a thousand things when it comes to health. Very complicated. Is there a simple tip you can give that has a big effect?

“Well, it’s not really complicated. If you are not sure, you can always ask someone who knows a bit better. 🙂 Now to your question: Of course there is a simple way that has an immense effect. Intermittent fasting.

Oh, you’re rolling your eyes. 🙂 Just wait and see what I have to say.”

But fasting is giving up something I like to do – eat. That’s not easy. I just like to eat, very much.

“I’ll come back to that in a moment. Why does that have a big effect?Giving up solid food starts a kind of cleansing function in the body: the body switches from burning carbohydrates to burning fat. Cleanses the intestines, gets rid of waste products and relieves the liver, which filters toxins more effectively and optimises energy production. Do you agree that this is a good thing?”


“I also like to eat. Who doesn´t? So the way is to fast only part of the day. Not the complete day.”

But for how long?

“How long do you sleep? Eight hours? Ok. Now, not eating for 2 hours before sleeping and 2 hours after waking up, that’s already 12 hours. Why don’t you start with 12 hours and increase to 3 hours before and 3 hours after? That’s 14 hours, right? During the fasting period, you only drink unsweetened drinks and water. “

I see. So if you’re not used to that, then increase slowly. But I like to eat, how about that?

“Is it hunger you feel or appetite or cravings?”

I don’t know. I’ve never thought about it.


“In contrast to classical fasting, the body does not switch to a “state of emergency” during intermittent fasting. Energy consumption is not reduced because the fasting phases are too short for this. Nevertheless, there is a detoxification of the body and a switch to burning fat instead of carbohydrates. It’s basically just a more conscious way of eating.”

And what does that happen exactly?

“The cleansing effect of fasting sets in after just a few calorie-free hours. The body switches the metabolism as soon as no more “fuel” comes in. Then the cells begin to break down and utilise their own components, preferably old and defective components. This is a strategy of the body to save energy.”

Sounds logical. Do you have another tip?

“The internet is full of positive articles on this topic. Why? Obviously it is a method that is easy to implement and achieves very good results. Otherwise there wouldn’t be so many reports about it. Studies have also been conducted on this topic. These confirm the healing effects.”

Then I’ll see what I can find about it.

“Keep me posted.”
