Some years back, and with my memory I am not sure when, I woke up one morning and had trouble seeing. After blinking a bit and closing one eye then the other, I realised I was blind in my left eye. I also developed more severe type 2 diabetes, which is not treatable by any of the drugs. So I started intermittent fasting nearly four months back, the restricted feeding variant where I eat only 8 hours out of 24. Due to my circadian problems the timing of these hours are always changing, but not the duration. I have had a little more energy at times, but tend to spend it cooking ... which means I am finally able to eat a bit healthier ... tastier too. Just a few minutes ago I went to my kitchen, and realised every white surface, especially my oven, was blue. Again the blinking, shutting one eye, then shutting the other. Its coming from my left eye. Not only that, but I can see the hotplates on my oven! A few months ago I could not see a car a few meters away using my left eye, and could only see outlines of people if they were close, and doors if there was light coming through them. I was concerned that if I lost sight in my right eye for any reason I would be in big trouble. In fasting over 12 hours there is a catabolic phase triggered called autophagy. It is claimed it can decrease scar tissue, and clear away cellular debris. It is a known catabolic phase. In theory this can pave the way for an anabolic response, a healing response. I am not convinced this is what is happening, but definitely intrigued. While I am interested in the science, personally I am on a bit of a high right now. Suddenly seeing again ... will this continue?
