What are the Benefits of Water-Only Fasting?

On this podcast episode, Rich Roll interviews Dr. Alan Goldhamer who is the founder of the 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.

They talk about 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.
