Psychiatrist Slows Down For Fasting

Submitted on June 27, 2011 - 6:10pm

Fasting is like a reboot for your system, not just physically, but mentally and spiritually as well. Dr. Walter Jacobson echoed this sentiment in what he recently wrote about his experience fasting:

"Although it was a physically and emotionally draining experience, it made me consider a number of things that I hadn’t thought much about prior to my fasting. It made me appreciate my willpower, that there is much I can accomplish if I apply similar tenacity and determination in other areas."

Dr. Jacobson, board-certified psychiatrist, author, and speaker, was motivated to try fasting after reading Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Fasting and Eating for Health.
