Ten Fasting Physicians Praise FCI's Juice-Fasting
Program and Professional Supervision!
IRONICALLY, FEW PHYSICIANS KNOW that all three Fathers of Western Medicine practiced and prescribed prolonged fasting--Hippocrates, Galen and Paracelsus (who concluded, nearly 500 years ago, that: "Fasting is the greatest remedy--the physician within!").
No matter what level of benefits--physiologically, psychologically and spiritually--your intuitive wisdom has led you to this marvelous, self-improvement technique to contemplate achieving, please enjoy these post-fast testimonials from just 10 among the increasing number of M.D.s doing FCI's Scientific Juice Fasting Programs year in and decade out, drawn by our reputation as the 35-year global leader in our field, with clients on seven continents (representing 220 countries) achieving an unparalleled 98.5% Program success rate.
"Fasting is a valid experience. It can benefit any otherwise healthy person whose calories now have the upper hand in his or her life."--"The New England Journal of Medicine"
FASTING CENTER INTERNATIONAL continuously has prospective fasting clients without the extensive physiological training of medical doctors, for example, who approach us after having done a little 'fasting' on their own--either having used the "CliffsNotes" approach of scanning a book or two on fasting, despite knowing they've neither the experiential knowledge nor distilled wisdom to understand what's valid from what's not (globally, for instance, there are hundreds of fasting books in print, most all of which are mutually antagonistic and will hopefully confuse any intelligent being). . .or they've 'fasted' blindly by the seat of their pants into the virtual unknown on a wing and a prayer.
Such 'fasters,' never having been supervised by skilled, veteran professionals, fail to understand they can be harming themselves without even realizing how, since the human body is not some cheap CD player they're fooling with, but an extraordinarily complex, delicate system which can quickly be thrown out of balance on multiple levels (physiologically, psychologically and spiritually). Having done a little of this 'blind fasting' without a clue of how to deal with even simple fasting supervision issues such as postural hypotension, maintaining the body and brain's electrolyte balance, or even intelligently shutting down the various systems in the body, pre-fast (which must later be skillfully reinitiated, post-fast, of course), a few such 'fasters' approach Fasting Center International asking what our Scienfitic Fasting supervision entails, "beyond a few fasting recipes and what I could read in a $10 book on fasting?"
Unfortunately, such foolhardy 'fasters' never hear, as Fasting Center International constantly does, the health-damaging tragedies which can and do result from unsupervised 'fasters' going against the advice of every reputable fasting book on Earth--that one should never attempt a prolonged fast (more than three days) without veteran, professional supervision, initially--including Emergency Room visits in dazed conditions to allopaths who've also neither theoretical nor experiential knowledge of Scientific Fasting (as, for example, fasting's never been taught in any of America's 131 medical schools) and, thus, do not know how to begin refeeding such 'fasting' casualties (and often call us for fasting advice, which Fasting Center International is unfortunately unable to give, because of legal and insurance constraints, since they are not our fasting clients).
If they did, they would never attempt prolonged fasting, initially, without professional supervision (repeating what was unskillful, unsupervised 'fasting' the first time confers neither fasting wisdom nor fasting safety). Combined with our clear, no-nonsense warning, perhaps listening to the following, post-fast testimonials from physicians, globally, who've completed prolonged Fasting Programs under Fasting Center International's skilled, veteran, professional supervision, will be instructive to such misguided 'fasters.'
MUTUAL RESPECT has always been honored at FCI, which can clearly be seen in the following 10 representative examples of fasting clients' appreciation among the M.D.'s educating themselves by doing Fasting Center International's Scientific Juice Fasting Programs year in and decade out. . .a pediatrician of 13 years, 49, who went back to medical school and became a psychiatrist (child, adult and family), and did his 50-day Fasting Program with a University of California colleague (a doctor of clinical psychology) while in training for the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run (where they run 100 miles while climbing 32,000 feet, just in case your mind was wondering whether or not you'll have enough 'energy' while fasting); a new surgeon, 31, doing his Fasting Program with a friend; a chief surgeon, 53; a family practitioner, 46, who'd delivered over 2000 babies in Africa before returning home to set up practice; a New York oncologist, 45; a Texas radiologist, 58; a Chicago orthopedic surgeon, 48; a Melbourne, Australia, former physician, 61; a Canadian family practitioner, 46, and a brand new internist, 27.
The first two are California physicians, both out of the University of California system [their full, post-fast testimonials are at: Physicians]; the third, chief of surgery at a Phoenix, AZ, medical center who's already referred nearly a dozen colleagues, loved ones and friends to do our Fasting Programs; the fourth, an Australian M.D. who's similarly referred a dozen patients; the fifth, a Texas physician fasting with his South Dakota brother, 65; the sixth, certified in hematology and medical oncology, doing her 90-day Fasting Program to lose 40 lbs. and hopefully resolve a fibroid tumor; the seventh, an orthopedic surgeon and former college wrestler, 48, began his 75-day Fasting Program at 5' 11", 225 lbs., "feeling terrible"; the eighth, a former physician and Buddhist monk, began his 52-day Fasting Program "with 61 years of physical and mental toxins, plus 15-20 lbs. of unnecessary weight"; the ninth, a Port Alberni, British Columbia (Canada), family physician, began the 80-day Fasting Program he did with his same-age wife, at 6' 3", 236 lbs., wanting to drop 40 unnecessary lbs., along with his alcohol, nicotine and caffeine addictions, and the tenth, finishing up the final year of her internal medicine residency: "Then, I'll be able to practice my type of integrative medicine."
The younger Australian physician told Fasting Center International after beginning his 73-day Fasting Program, coupled with a 50-year-old patient (77-day Fasting Program) who'd suffered chronic fatigue for 12 years and "tried everything else, to no avail": "When I first considered the idea of fasting a few weeks ago, it caught me right in my centre. There was no way I could let go of the idea; like a dog with a bone, I had to study the idea of fasting myself, and so I spent many hours online researching the subject, reading through so many fasting sites, probably about 150. With respect to the many fasting facilities around, I could not help but come back to Fasting Center International's site. And, the more I got into Fasting.com, the more I realised I had found a home for me and maybe others like me needing help, in the sense that I did not need to look anywhere else.
"I like to work with the best; nothing less will do for me. And, when I meet the best in the business, you can smell it all over them. That's you. It comes through loudly and clearly. . . .This fasting door you open for me, for us all, is a major road to truth, and light. I need more of your business cards, so that others near may also see the door and maybe, God willing, take one giant step for self and life."
This same avant-garde physician, 20 days into his 73-day Fasting Program, would add: "Dennis: Thank you for the "Bulimia" letter. . .extraordinary work! Consider yourself (please, if you will) the first truly great teacher I have found in Cyberspace."
On his Fasting Program's 41st day, he noted: "Dear Dennis: I am sleeping well, and have been experiencing a very substantial increase in general energy and vitality since day one of my Fasting Program. I am also contemplating quietly, meditating and praying better, hungry for that peace which passeth all understanding. . .working on it. You have a pristine awareness of detoxification and health, and I am blessed to be your student and friend."
Five months post-fast, he would conclude: "Hi, Dennis: Fasting Center International's Fasting Program is the most wonderful Program for anyone who wants their life back. In today's world, isn't that just about everyone? Your Lifetime Optimum Health Plan [FCI's post-fast, 60-page follow-on, including the latest nutritional biochemistry and the oldest wisdom from the healthiest, most long-loved cultures on Earth--what they're doing we're not] gets better by the day. It is renewable by the day. That means, also, that if you apply it by the day, your life will reach its greatest potential. This has been true for me 100%. By working the Lifetime Optimum Health Plan into my life daily, I've reached the best level of health, ever, in my life.
"I am free of pain of any kind. My energy is better than it was at age 15, and I'm now 47. And, I have never, ever been happier in all my life. I'm now certain, thank you Dennis, beyond ALL doubt, that this day, this week, this month, this year, are all going to be the best in my life. Know that many doors had to open and close for me before I found yours, but your Fasting Program is the Rolls Royce ride to getting one's life back, in the health area. With all of me, I want to say thank you, Dennis. After the Lord, who has been patiently teaching me how to pray and love, you're an awesome teacher too, my buddy, and great thou art. John Green, M.D.
"P.S. I must tell five people every day of the great work you are doing for our planet, Dennis, and recommend they touch base with Fasting Center International. Also, hardly a day goes by that I don't share with some suffering soul how you would have to be among the great fasting instructors of all time. I know that, but the challenge is bringing people round to discovering, for themselves, this amazing fasting skill you have crafted. I encourage you to persevere in the good work that you are engaged in, for it is very good, indeed. God bless you, Dennis, the most amazing and respected fasting teacher on planet Earth."
NEARLY HALFWAY THROUGH the 80-day Fasting Program he began near his ideal weight (nearly half of all FCI clients, globally, are not fasting to lose weight), the Arizona chief of surgery wrote Director Paulson: "Regarding Fasting Center International's mission, you stated: 'By cultivating our own heart of compassion through our fasting service to others, we have happily discovered that what inevitably results is a pure, wholesome joy, as well as a peace that passeth understanding. Hopefully, through our helping so many others through Scientific Fasting, their enhanced cultivation of their own hearts of compassion will, collectively, help lift humanity in its evolutionary journey toward Oneness with that creative force Christians, Muslims and Jews call God; Buddhists and Jains call Omniscient Mind; Hindus call Brahma; Native Americans call Great Spirit, etc. Thus, may you be happy, healthy, peaceful and at ease. May you forever more be filled with loving kindness toward all living beings. And, may you enjoy a stable, meritorious life with a good heart, helping to end unnecessary suffering whenever you're able.'
"How blessed you are, Dennis, to be able to have blessings like that flowing through you. How blessed we all are for synchronicity to have brought us all together. How blessed the world is to have the Internet, to allow you to share your knowledge and wisdom with everyone, as you so joyously do. You are truly blessed to be able to guide so many people on their path to better, more meaningful, happier, healthier lives. "
On his Fasting Program's 47th day, he noted: "Hi, Dennis: I was thinking, today. . .I am now physically (weight and waist size) where I was in my mid-teens (except for those 35 years of extra age), and I am close to being in as good a shape as I was back then. So, here I go with the rest of my life--starting off fresh, detoxed, at the right weight. Actually, I'm about to get in better shape than I have ever been, and keep my weight and physique where I want them for the rest of my life. Your Total Detoxification Fasting Program and Lifetime Optimum Health Plan have given me the secret to maintain what I have so joyfully achieved. My next 50 years will be far healthier than the first 50!"
On his 64th fasting day, he added: "Wow, Dennis! It's hard to believe I'm in my final week of fasting. Everything is going great! Our hospital had a 30th anniversary powwow yesterday. I got asked bunches of fasting questions by interested people who know what I'm doing. . .nothing but support and admiration for my perseverance. I reviewed all my fasting goals, and have accomplished everything I'd wished for. This has been an outstanding experience in focusing on my personal needs and goals, and the organized discipline involved has been invaluable. Fasting Center International's "Recommended Reading" list and your recommendations in your responses were priceless in finding resources to help me on my journey. I can't begin to thank you enough for your kindness and wisdom. I have told numerous people, to whom I give your Fasting.com e-address, that one is buying Fasting Center International's expertise, and I can, without any hesitation, say that what one receives from you is, without any doubt, more than worth every cent of the cost. Big love, Thomas Stempel, M.D." [Full testimonial is at: Thomas Stempel, M.D.]
The New York oncologist wrote two-thirds of the way through her 90-day Fasting Program: "Dear Dennis: I realize that you are extremely busy, and am overwhelmed by your constant support. My fibroid tumor is getting smaller, and I'm down to 128 lbs. (from 170). I am not hungry at all, and have not experienced any food desire since I started fasting. You do not even realize how much you have already helped me. I am a different person now. My way of thinking has changed, and my old enthusiasm has come back. I can see better perspectives in my life, and have much more compassion for others. I feel perfect, with lots of energy every day. I'm very grateful for your help. You are terrific! God bless you for your wonderful Fasting Program. I feel like a new person again! Thank you so much! Your biggest friend, Kathryn MacKenzie, M.D"
While transitioning out after her 80-day fast, she added: "Thank you for your wisdom, support, and constant guidance throughout my fast. It takes many years of bad habits to develop mental and physical disturbances. My previous, unhealthy lifestyle led me to many problems, including obesity, uterine fibroids, and unhappiness. Fasting under your tactful supervision changed my life. I became more aware of my spirit, my body, and the world around me. You have no idea, Dennis, how much you have helped me. Fasting under your intelligent supervision has been one of the best experiences in my life! I'll send my post-fast testimonial shortly, and look forward to my next fast. My gratitude to you is overwhelming. I have never been in such a good shape! You should be rewarded for saving humankind. Big Love, Kathryn" And, after a repeat, follow-up fast, this M.D. would report: "I can no longer feel my fibroid tumor, which was very easily felt from outside even two months ago. I feel great!" [Full post-fast testimonial is at: Physicians.]
The Texas radiologist wrote on the 15th day of his 76-day Fasting Program: "I knew, immediately after reading your Fasting.com website, that your Scientific Juice Fasting Program was what I was looking for. I'm very thankful I found you, and your great wealth of knowledge and experience. I appreciate all the effort and time you spent getting to this point. You're a very skilled professional, and it's great you share this tremendous secret. I'll surely be pointing people to Fasting.com. Thanks for this wonderful Fasting Program! Your student, Jerry Wright, M.D."
The Chicago orthopedic surgeon wrote one month after completing his 75-day Fasting Program: "I found incredible energy and focus, while on the fast. Now, even off the fast, I do more in a day than I used to do in a week! That's no exaggeration. I lost 56 lbs. on the fast, and presently weigh what I weighed in high school while on the wrestling team. The weight loss and good physical shape are a fasting plus, but the spiritual and emotional gains are even larger. I've never felt so good, and I really didn't want the fast to end! However, post-fast, I still feel great, and know that I will fast again and again in the future. Dennis, you and Fasting Center International have truly saved my life, and probably my soul. By the way, this fasting experience would be cheap at 10 times the price of your Fasting Program. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Sincerely, David Bracken, M.D." [Full post-fast testimonial is at: David Bracken, M.D..]
The 61-year-old former physician and former Buddhist monk from Melbourne, Australia, who is now an editor and publisher of Buddhist texts for free distribution located in Weston, Massachusetts [his organization's website is the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive)], concluded after his 52-day Fasting Program: "Thank you so much for this great Fasting Program! I must have detoxed a bunch, and am wearing jeans I haven't worn for quite some time. I'm feelin' good, lookin' better, and plan to fast again and again, at least in shorter bursts, if not for the full 52 days.--Nicholas Ribush, M.D." [Full post-fast testimonial is at: Physicians.]
The Canadian family physician, 46, nearing completion of the 80-day Fasting Program he did with his same-age wife, wrote: "Greetings on fasting day 68, Dennis. It's unbelievable to have fasted this far. . .once in a lifetime! This truly has been an awesome experience, with so many blessings unfolding! I have blown away my first fasting goal of at least a 40-lb. weight loss, with 57 lbs. fasted away, as of today. As for my second fasting goal, I now have a firm resolve to discipline 'fueling' and 'driving' my revitalized life. My third fasting goal is deeply spiritual--experiencing the real presence of God in all, and celebrating in thanksgiving. These last two fasting goals, I will be a student of for the rest of my days, in a deeper, delightful way. A special thank you to you for doing this service. Please, all I have communicated to you is gifted to your fasting ministry to use as you see fit. This is a small gift, in comparison to the personal fasting journey you offer others. Much alive and loving it, Alan Fraser, M.D.
Finally, the Virginia internist, 27, speaking on the 49th fasting day of her 69-day Juice Fasting Program, having done two earlier FCI Programs to help resolve her binge-eating disorder which began at age 19: "I originally entered this fast trying to resolve my compulsive eating and addictions to coffee and chocolate. Funny, though, after a few weeks, I FINALLY realized that it wasn't about food at all. It never was. It was about me not addressing my wants, my needs. . .not taking care of myself in a healthful way. Formerly, I was always worrying about what other people thought of me, and always putting others' needs so far ahead of mine that I ended up losing sight of who I was as an individual on this planet. "The fast allowed me to take care of myself--physically, emotionally and spiritually. I have learned how to satisfy my emotional and spiritual hunger. I feel as if I have rediscovered myself. Thank you, Dennis, for the clarity; thank you for being there with me every step of the way, and thank you for your unwavering faith in me.
"For anyone considering this Scientific Fasting Program, the fact that you are considering it means you know, on some level, that you would benefit from it. A new body and a clearer outlook await. Please, as a medical professional, I urge you not to trust a fast/cleanse to anyone but Dennis Paulson. No fasting or cleansing program addresses cleansing to such a level as FCI's Scientific Fasting Program does. Also, no other program addresses any of the mental/emotional aspects involved. I do not even feel comfortable comparing other programs to the FCI Program, because the FCI Program is simply the best, no comparison. Dennis Paulson's superior, one-of-a-kind Fasting Program and personalized advice are the key to the success rate and amazing outcomes of all FCI's clients.
"Physically, my dandruff has cleared up. My skin is fresh and acne-free. I am at my ideal body weight. My last pap smear, taken during the last week of my fast, was normal. This is the first time my pap smear has been normal in 11 months. I do not know if the fast definitely 'cured' my cervical dysplasia, but I do know that my lab results, which were abnormal before the fast, are now normal. I am more than ecstatic! So again, Dennis, you have my thanks which, at this point, do not seem like enough for all you and your Program have given me. Take care my good friend. So much love to you tonight. Thanks, again, for bringing me to this place of being. I am forever grateful. Veronica Biltmore, M.D. [Full testimonial is at: Veronica Biltmore, M.D.]
