Santa Rosa, CA, February 24, 2020 - TrueNorth Health Foundation announced today a case report that suggests medically supervised, water-only fasting and an exclusively whole-plant-food diet may have the potential for treating – and possibly reversing – the growth of some types of tumors in the time between their discovery and biopsy. The report also indicates that fasting and diet may be beneficial for managing obesity, high blood pressure, and other inflammatory conditions.
The case report was published in the February issue of Alternative and Complementary Therapies. Three authors contributed to the report: Dr. Toshia Myers, executive director of the TrueNorth Health Foundation; Dr. Alan Goldhamer, founder and director of the TrueNorth Health Center; and Gregory Butler, doctor of pharmacy candidate at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
“This case demonstrates that we may be able to improve some types of medical conditions that typically require surgery and other invasive procedures through the use of water-only fasting and diet,” said Dr. Myers. “It sets a precedent for future exploration.”
