I’ve been through the wringer — knee surgeries, shoulder surgeries — the whole nine yards.
In fact, I was telling my husband the other day that I would love it if I could get stem cell therapy and they could just stick a shot in all of my joints and I could feel like new again.
If you haven’t heard of stem cells before, they’re basically you’re body’s “master cells”. They can turn into other types of cells and are the building blocks of your tissue and your internal repair system.
But, the fact is that those stem cell therapies out there right now ring in at the tens of thousands of dollars range and that’s just not doable for me at this stage of the game.
If you’re like me and you’ve got joints that just don’t want to get moving and more aches and pains than not, there is good news though…
According to a new study, there is a way to restore the function of your own stem cells in just 24 hours and it’s absolutely FREE!

MIT biologists boost regeneration
MIT biologists started the study using intestinal stem cells.
You see, intestinal stem cells decline rapidly as you age, regenerating more and more slowly.
So, what did the biologist decide to do about it?
Well, for many decades now, scientists have known that low caloric intake is linked with longer life spans. Therefore, the researchers set out to see what effect fasting would have on the function of stem cells.
Here’s what they found… After mice fasted for just 24 hours their intestinal stem cells doubled their regenerative capacity.
Yep, that’s right… After only one day of fasting, those stem cells were working double time!
Amazing, isn’t it?
How to fast for better stem cell function
You can do a monthly or even weekly 24 hour intermittent fast in order to boost your stem cell function.
The easiest way to begin your fasting journey is to fast from dinner to dinner or breakfast to breakfast. For example:
- Dinner Sunday at 6pm
- Start Fast Sunday at 7pm
- Fast Ends Monday at 6pm
To help with hunger throughout your fast, you’ll want to drink plenty of healthy liquids like water and green tea, especially at meal time to help your stomach feel full.
Herbal teas, including chamomile, hibiscus and lemongrass can also give you a tasty treat and help your fast pass more quickly.
Be sure to also have good food options like lean proteins and green leafy veggies available when you break your fast. These will keep you from heading out and hitting the fast food drive through and destroying the good work you’ve done.
And, my number one tip for fasting days is to keep your mind busy. The worst thing you can do is to spend your time sitting around thinking about food. If you keep your mind active, your time and your fast will fly.
To get rid of joint pain, feel and move like a younger person, 24 hours of fasting is a small price to pay. Set aside time to fast for regular stem cell regeneration and save your joints and your pocketbook.
Editor’s note: If you’re serious about stopping premature aging, avoiding age-related disease and living with a strong mind well into your 90s and beyond, don’t forget about your body’s master hormone. Many experts believe it’s the reason people, like Greek grandpa Stamatis Moraitis, residing in blue zones across the globe are living it up! Click to read Stamatis’s story…
