Our society is seeing an epidemic of chronic degenerative inflammatory diseases. Conditions like heart disease, cancer, dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are all on the rise.
Our current medical system has no real answers when it comes to preventing these conditions and most people just assume, they are a normal part of aging.
The truth is that our bodies were created with an innate ability to heal themselves.
Every day, it goes to work to help repair damaged cells and cellular components while getting rid of metabolic debris. Unfortunately, our lifestyle habits thwart this innate healing mechanism and overload our system with metabolic waste.
Autophagy happens when your body recycles and gets rid of old or excess cells (like fat) that don’t serve a purpose or benefit your health. The Nobel Prize in 2016 was awarded to the Japanese researcher Yoshinori Ohsumi for his breakthrough work in helping us understand the process of autophagy and how it works.
