How To REVERSE YOUR AGE In 40 Days With WATER FASTING | Dr. Alan Goldhamer

Last updated: Jun 1, 2023

The video is about how water fasting can reverse aging and treat medical conditions like high blood pressure, and features an interview with Dr. Alan Goldhamer, founder of True North Health Center.

The video features an interview with Dr. Alan Goldhamer, the founder of True North Health Center, who discusses the benefits of water fasting for reversing the effects of aging and treating conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases. He explains that medical management for these conditions only manages the consequences of the illness and does not address the root cause, which is often diet-related. Dr. Goldhamer also shares his experience with medically supervised water-only fasting and the success his patients have had in eliminating the need for medication. The video also touches on the history of fasting and how it was once considered criminal negligence to recommend it to patients.

  • Dr. Alan Goldhamer founded True North Health Center and believes in treating medical conditions through diet and lifestyle intervention.
  • True North Health Center offers medically supervised water-only fasting and has had over 20,000 patients undergo fasting.
  • Water fasting can treat medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, and lymphoma.
  • Short-term intermittent fasting involves fasting every day for between 12 and 16 hours, while extended water fasting requires medical supervision.
  • Medical supervision is necessary to monitor patients' vital signs, electrolyte levels, and other factors that can be affected by fasting.
  • Water fasting promotes healing and minimizes overeating, and intermittent fasting is recommended for virtually everybody.
  • Not everybody is a good candidate for fasting, and people with high cranium levels over 2.0 and inadequate kidney function should not be fasting.
  • Water-only fasting mobilizes mostly fat, specifically and preferentially visceral fat, and animal foods biologically concentrate toxins from their environment.
  • The body rapidly mobilizes materials when fasting and exercising, and people need to rest during fasting to mobilize predominantly fat.

Fasting and Perception

  • Dr. Goldhamer talks about how fasting was perceived when he started True North Health Center.
  • The California Board of Medical Quality Assurance determined that recommending fasting to a patient constituted such a gross violation of the standard of medical practice that it rose to the level of criminal negligence.
  • Now, fasting has gained some notoriety and True North Health Foundation is doing original research with fasting.
  • Other researchers are also publishing work on intermittent fasting and fasting mimicking approaches.
  • Dr. Goldhamer believes that people are sick from dietary excess and that fasting can help treat medical conditions.

Benefits of Water Fasting

  • Water fasting can reverse the consequences of dietary excess.
  • Fasting can stimulate autophagy, reduce acute phase reactive proteins associated with inflammation, and increase brain-derived neurotrophic factor in the brain to prevent Alzheimer's disease.
  • Many of the biomarkers that change with fasting are the same biomarkers that change with exercise.
  • Fasting and exercise both tend to impact health promotion and disease reversal biomarkers.
  • Dietary excess, particularly refined foods, is the cause of chronic degenerative diseases.

Why People Fear Fasting

  • People are programmed to eat as much as they can whenever they can of the most concentrated foods available.
  • Our ancient ancestors lived in a world of scarcity, and most humans didn't live long enough to reproduce because of deprivation and scarcity.
  • Humans invented agriculture, figured out how to refine and concentrate food, and do animal husbandry, which created a situation where we can get enough to eat without exercising.
  • People are afraid of not eating because they're not sure how much time without food would result in their demise.
  • Basic instincts are to eat as much as possible whenever possible.

Types of Fasting

  • There are two types of fasting: short-term intermittent fasting and extended water fasting.
  • Short-term intermittent fasting involves fasting every day for between 12 and 16 hours, depending on the target.
  • During the eight-hour feeding window, people should eat a whole natural food diet that excludes all chemicals and processed foods.
  • Cumulatively, short-term intermittent fasting is thought to induce changes and stimulate factors that promote health and disease reversal.
  • Extended water fasting is a more intensive form of fasting that requires medical supervision.

Importance of Medical Supervision

  • Extended water fasting is a more intensive form of fasting that requires medical supervision.
  • Medical supervision is necessary to monitor patients' vital signs, electrolyte levels, and other factors that can be affected by fasting.
  • Medical supervision can also help patients manage the symptoms of fasting, such as headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.
  • Medical supervision can ensure that patients break their fast safely and gradually to avoid refeeding syndrome.
  • Refeeding syndrome is a potentially fatal condition that can occur when a person who has been fasting for an extended period begins to eat again too quickly.

Benefits of Water Fasting

  • Water fasting promotes healing and minimizes overeating.
  • Intermittent fasting is recommended for virtually everybody.
  • Periodic water-only fasting is recommended for 5-40 days.
  • Water fasting can treat medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, and lymphoma.
  • Healthy people can also do water fasting for a shorter period of time like a week.

Supervision and Safety

  • Not everybody is a good candidate for fasting.
  • People with high cranium levels over 2.0 and inadequate kidney function should not be fasting.
  • Fasting can shut down the kidneys and result in kidney failure and death.
  • Dry fasting puts a heavy load on the kidneys and can lead to death.
  • Fasting triggers detoxification by mobilizing the body's reserves, predominantly fat.

Detoxification and Elimination

  • Water-only fasting mobilizes mostly fat, specifically and preferentially visceral fat.
  • Visceral fat contains a lot of fat-soluble materials and toxins.
  • When those fats are mobilized, toxins are rapidly mobilized, processed, and eliminated.
  • Most of those materials are eliminated in the urine.
  • Animal foods biologically concentrate toxins from their environment.

Fasting and Exercise

  • The body rapidly mobilizes materials when fasting and exercising.
  • Fasting and exercising leads to more weight loss, but more of it is lean tissue.
  • Fasting and resting mobilizes predominantly fat and specifically and preferentially visceral fat.
  • People need to rest during fasting to mobilize predominantly fat.
  • Modified fasting with a certain amount of calories is a different process.

Importance of Resting During Water Fasting

  • Water-only fasting needs to be done resting to maximize detox, preserve lean tissue, and maximize fat loss.
  • Proper preparation before fasting is important, including quitting coffee before fasting.
  • Resting during fasting is harder but more effective for detoxification.
  • Passive activities like stretching and meditation can be done during resting.
  • Recovery post-fasting is fabulous, with the elimination of inflammation, joint pain, and chronic injuries.

Physiological Changes During Fasting

  • Physiological dehydration occurs during fasting, which is part of the conservation mechanism.
  • Exercise and fasting both increase brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which preserves the brain and protects the nervous system.
  • Tracking people for 30-35 years shows that water fasting can reverse aging.
  • Longer duration fasting is possible, but it is important to avoid entering the process of starvation.
  • Refeeding protocol is important to avoid refeeding syndrome, which can be fatal.

Re-feeding and Medications

  • Post-fasting edema can occur when a person is exposed to high concentrations of sodium after a fast.
  • Re-feeding period is important after a long-term fast to avoid serious consequences.
  • Rapid withdrawal of certain medications can induce a life-threatening response.
  • Some medications should be discontinued before fasting, while others should be discontinued during fasting.
  • Supplementation can cause complications during fasting.

Hydration and Natural Recycling Mechanisms

  • Maintaining adequate hydration is important during fasting.
  • Drinking too much water can flush electrolytes out and result in water intoxication.
  • Resting and maintaining appropriate hydration allows natural recycling mechanisms in the body to maintain nutritional status.
  • Electrolytes are monitored twice daily on patients to avoid depletion.
  • Fasting is a safe and natural adaptation, but appropriate history exam and lab are necessary before a person undertakes a long-term fast.

The Bi-fuel Brain and Ketosis

  • The brain is a bi-fuel brain, meaning it changes to burning ketone bodies during fasting.
  • Humans had to be able to fast because of the late arrival of spring.
  • Fasting mimicking diets and keto diets play on the fasting mechanism.
  • Ketosis has a hunger blunting effect and helps with short-term weight loss.
  • In the clinic, they focus on fat loss and improving health for long-term health stability.
