Your Stay at the Center

Your Stay at the Center

For nearly 40 years, Dr. Alan Goldhamer and his team at TrueNorth Health Center have supervised the fasting and care of more than 20,000 patients through its residential health education program. The Center has expanded continually over the years and today is the largest facility in the world specializing in medically supervised, water-only fasting.


The Center occupies a 24,000-square-foot residential complex located in a prestigious neighborhood of Santa Rosa, CA. Surrounded by elegant Victorian homes, the facility features a beautiful, secure central courtyard with mature landscaping, a rose garden, and fountains. Walking trails and neighborhood parks are just steps from the property.


The Center has been completely rejuvenated. Improvements include a new telephone system, upgraded Wi-Fi network, a new generator to prevent extended power losses and maintain essential services during power outages, renovated guest rooms, and fresh paint. There are 67 guest rooms, including a range of suites with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. All suites are equipped with TVs and streaming services.

The Center has been completely renovated. We have a modern phone system, offering participants personal voicemail and free local and long-distance calling. Our high speed internet connection is freely available over a WI-FI network throughout the facility and grounds. All participants have their own private bedroom and their choice of private or shared bathroom. Each suite shares a dining room and large living room with a 42-inch LCD TV and streaming services. All rooms have new, comfortable mattresses and bedding. We also have 17 large rooms with king sized beds and private 37-inch LCD TVs.


Our staff chef is Chef Ramses Bravo who comes to us after serving for 4 years as the executive chef at the famous Kenwood Inn Resort and Spa. Chef Bravo has developed a variety of outstanding dishes that fully comply with the TrueNorth Health strict policy of avoiding all animal products, as well as avoiding added oil, salt, and sugar. He will be teaching a variety of cooking classes to our participants and should make your transition to healthful eating a real joy.
