Dr. Goldhamer is the founder of the True North Health Center in Santa Rosa, CA, which specializes in supervised water fasting. For over 35 years they’ve helped over 20,000 patients reverse various aliments and diseases through supervised water-fasting and the introduction and education of a plant-based, sugar-free, oil-free, and salt-free diet.

I know that sounds pretty hardcore, but this podcast is called Vitamin Joy. It’s about doing simple things in your life that can create massive amounts of joy. His techniques for what his results are are fairly simple – changing your diet and drinking only water. I get it’s big leap for some people.

Dr. Goldhamer, who is a licensed osteopathic physician, the author of The Health Promoting Cookbook, and the co-author of The Pleasure Trap, has seen the process work firsthand and been part of several big-time peer reviewed studies published in major medical journals, and recently been featured in movies like What The Health, and the Netflix special UnWell.

For today’s show, I talk about my own experience working with Dr. Goldhamer. I ask him to give us an overview of eating this, and how it can add more health and immunity to our lives, something we all care about right now. We also talk about how come it’s so hard for us to change our diets and how water fasting can make that change easier. This podcast gets even better towards the end.
