Dr. Goldhamer is a pioneer in treating lifestyle diseases.  He is the co-author of the book, The Pleasure Trap, founder of the ground-breaking medical facility, True North Health Center and has been the instigator and investigator of some incredible studies showing water fasting’s effectiveness in treating hypertension.  He has treated thousands of patients with type 2 diabetes, heart disease, hypertension and more.

I was really interested to learn more about the True North Health Center in California because of the success stories.  It’s probably one of the most important resources on this podcast because anyone can go there to get healthier and see results. Whether you already eat a plant-based diet and want to optimize what you’re already doing to stage 3 hypertension or perhaps you need to lose over 100lbs, True North is ready to accommodate everyone. The staff at TrueNorth Health Center includes medical doctors, osteopaths, chiropractors, naturopaths, psychologists, research scientists, and other health professionals.  While they treat with food, they are the world’s largest center for medically supervised water fasting.

Dr. Goldhamer tells it like it is. In this very authentic conversation, you’ll learn about fasting and if it’s worth all the hype, the three culprits that are keeping us sick and fat, learn more about the True North Health Center, and simply hear some entertaining yet direct no-BS comments on bad habits.
