Fasting, an age-old practice, has gained contemporary attention due to its numerous health benefits. Studies indicate that short-term fasting can boost detoxification, encourage autophagy (a process of cellular cleaning), enhance brain performance, assist in weight loss, improve heart health, and even increase lifespan. Intermittent fasting, in particular, stands out as a diet regimen that promises significant health results.
On December 3, 2023, BAPS Charities hosted a health lecture in New York, NY to enlighten attendees on various fasting methods and their health merits. Delivered by Dr. Kirtan Chauhan, the talk covered the science behind fasting, its advantages, proper ways to conclude a fast, and crucial precautions to consider.
