Why your digestive system needs rest (justification for daily fasting) | Ruth Patterson
A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that both fasting and the body's circadian rhythms are factors in the body's ability to repair DNA damage. Periods without eating can enable the body to rest and clear away damaged cells, which secrete compounds that contribute to inflammation. In this clip, Dr. Ruth Patterson describes how eating following the body's circadian clock, eating during the day and fasting at night, enables the body to focus on repair rather than on the digestion of food.
