Fasting Elevates Heart’s Health

Fasting Elevates Heart’s Health

Fasting offers multiple health benefits, including positive effects on the metabolism of cholesterol and sugar.

Your bad cholesterol levels (low-density lipoprotein LDL) can be lowered with fasting to a significant degree, as it enhances people’s eating habits and behavior.

Fasting also improves R bodies’ abilities that metabolize sugar, and in turn, decreases the risk of diabetes and prevents obesity - two vital risk factors for the development of heart disease. If you have mild chest discomfort and dizziness, address these issues via our telehealth consultant, who will assess if a hospital visit is needed. Severe chest pain, difficulty in breathing, chest heaviness will require medical care in the emergency settings at the hospital.
