Dr. Alan Goldhamer interviewed by Andrew Perlot


Recommended Posts

Dr. Alan Goldhamer runs TrueNorth, perhaps the best place to do a supervised fast. At last count they supervised 15,000 fasts. At TrueNorth they have a bunch of doctors, each with a different background. Dr. Alan Goldhamer probably knows more about fasting than anyone else on the planet; but Loren Lockman might have something to say about that. Goldhamer and Lockman have disagreements about fasting: safety first vs getting results.
