Dr. Goldhamer is the founder of TrueNorth Health Center — one of the first and largest facilities in the world that specialize in medically supervised water-only fasting — where has overseen thousands of water fasts and helped patients radically transform their lives — from ditching medication to overcoming a litany of common but chronic lifestyle diseases.
Today we talk all things water fasting, food addiction, whole plant diets, and the power of the body to heal.
NOTE: Under no circumstances should anyone undertake a water-only fast of any length without the medical supervision of a trained professional. In other words, please do not try this at home.
