Hurdles T. Colin Campbell Overcame To Make His Research Available To The Public – The Real Truth About Health Conference

For decades T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. has been at the forefront of nutrition education and research. Dr. Campbell’s expertise and scientific interests encompass relationships between diet and disease, particularly the causation of cancer. His legacy, the China Project, is one of the most comprehensive studies of health and nutrition ever conducted. The New York Times has recognized the study as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology.”

Dr. Campbell is the coauthor of the bestselling book The China Study: Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-term Health, and author of the New York Times bestseller Whole, and The Low-Carb Fraud. He is featured in several documentaries including the blockbuster Forks Over Knives, Eating You Alive, Food Matters, Plant Pure Nation and others. He is the founder of the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and the online Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate in partnership with eCornell.

Dr. Campbell has conducted original research both in laboratory experiments and in large-scale human studies; received over 70 grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding (mostly with NIH), served on grant review panels of multiple funding agencies, actively participated in the development of national and international nutrition policy, authored over 300 research papers and given hundreds of lectures around the world.

He was trained at Cornell University (M.S., Ph.D.) and MIT (Research Associate) in nutrition, biochemistry, and toxicology. Dr. Campbell spent 10 years on the faculty of Virginia Tech’s Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition before returning to Cornell in 1975 where he presently holds his Endowed Chair as the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry in the Division of Nutritional Sciences.

The Benefits of Fasting for Healing – Dr. Michael Greger

Where did the idea of therapeutic fasting come from?

Doctor’s Note

Initially I had put off doing studies on fasting, since there were so few good studies, but there’s been an explosion in research interest in the last few years. Stay tuned for The World’s Largest Fasting Study.

I do have a bunch of studies already up on fasting and weight loss, though, due to my work on How Not to Diet:

The Truth About What Kills And What Heals – By Author Brian Clement – Hippocrates Institute

“Food And Lifestyles That Kill, Food And Lifestyles That Heal (A New Comprehensive Lecture) by Brian Clement Ph.D., L.N
Did you know that what you eat could be making you sick? It’s true. Some foods such as poultry, beef, and dairy clog your body with energy-depleting fats, toxins, and chemicals. Where can you find the optimum nourishment your body needs to stay strong, healthy, and vigorous? For millions of people, the answer is in the health and healing properties of living foods—foods that are eaten raw and produced without dangerous, nutrient-robbing chemicals or additives.
For more than forty years, Brian Clement has been teaching people how to cleanse and heal their bodies with naturally potent living foods. Brian explains why living foods are vital to good health.

Don’t give yourself a hard time if you can’t stay “consistent” – Ariel Belloso

How many of us, at some point – and I can certainly speak for myself, have felt bad because we cannot keep up with our diet and the health goals we set for ourselves?

You think you ought to follow a certain diet regime or adhere to the some exercise routine for a while, and you struggle to be “consistent”.

It happened to me a lot until I figured out something wasn’t quite right with this approach.

Consistency is a myth!

Or in the words of English writer and philosopher Aldous Huxley:

“Too much consistency is as bad for the mind as it is for the body.

Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life.

The only completely consistent people are the dead.”

I couldn’t agree more with Huxley’s statement.

I don’t think we can be “consistent” while trying to live fully.

I am not implying you should stop eating healthy and start eating junk food. What I am trying to say is that IT IS NOT NATURAL, NOR HUMAN to set ourselves tough guidelines to follow, and create high expectations around them.

If you wake one day and feel under the weather, don’t think you need to drink that juice in the morning as you do every day; or have lunch because it’s mid-day; or dinner because its dinner time; and then struggle with guilt and shame because you cannot achieve those goals today.

I got up the other day thinking I wanted to fast because I didn’t feel like eating anything… And guess what? I had a great day. Not only was I productive, but I felt amazing the next day too, because I fasted for 24 hours.

The Insane Benefits of Water-Only Fasting: Dr. Alan Goldhamer | Rich Roll Podcast

T H E  C R A Z Y   B E N E F I T S   O F   F A S T I N G

E P I S O D E   5 4 1

When we hear the word ‘addiction’, we think about mind-altering substances.

Typically overlooked in this conversation? Food.

But food addiction isn’t just real, it just might be our biggest problem. In fact, the hyper-industrialized western world is firmly entrenched in an epidemic of dysfunctional eating, fueled by an outsized appetite for an ever-increasing array of highly processed foods that are scientifically designed — with just the right amount of sugar, salt and fat — to hijack our nervous system; to enslave us to compulsive habits that lead to illness; and to ultimately render us wards of the pharmaceutical industry.

Meanwhile we’ve normalized this twisted and deleterious relationship. So much so that right now, more than two-thirds of adults in the industrialized world are overweight or obese. 

Nonetheless, millions of people find it extremely difficult if not downright impossible to change their dietary habits — and simply break the fatal, addictive grip.

So how does one effectively transition to a healthy diet sustained over time?

According to Dr. Alan Goldhamer, a great place to start is by fasting. 

I’m not talking about a couple days of drinking cold-pressed juice. I’m talking about nothing but water for upwards of 40 days.

Even with strict medical supervision it sounds like scary quackery. But over the last few decades, Dr. Goldhamer has successfully supervised over 20,000 patient fasts. Along the way, he has seen lives transformed wholesale. Unhealthy eating habit addictions broken. Medications ditched. And countless illnesses overcome.

An iconoclastic pioneer in his field,  Dr. Goldhamer is the founder of True North Health Center, one of the first (and largest) facilities in the world that specializes in medically supervised water-only fasting, along with medical and chiropractic services, psychotherapy and counseling, and more.

Today he joins the podcast to walk us through all things fasting, food addiction, and the power of a whole plant diet to prevent and reverse the many chronic lifestyle ailments that unnecessarily impair millions of people across the world.

Today’s conversation explores all things water-only fasting, from it’s origins dating back thousands of years across many cultures and religious traditions to the protocol Dr. Goldhamer administers today.

We discuss how fasting can create the foundation to transition to a sustainable, healthy whole food plant diet.

And we explore why he advocates an ‘SOS’ (very low salt oil and sugar) version of that diet.

But more than anything, this is a powerful discourse on our uncomfortable relationship with food. How most of us don’t realize we are killing ourselves with our fork and knife. How our food, and our food culture, is making us fat, sick, and frankly miserable. And how almost all of us, despite weight and health, use food as an emotional crutch.

I’m well aware that Dr. Goldhamer is controversial in certain circles. His approach represents a radical departure from our traditional western medical paradigm. But he also makes a lot of sense. And his results speak for themselves (I have several personal friends who have undergone his protocol).

Final Note: Under no circumstances should anyone undertake a water fast of any length without the medical supervision of a trained professional. In other words, please do not try this at home.

The visually inclined can watch it all go down on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

My hope is that Dr. Goldhamer will inspire you to think more deeply about the body’s profound ability to heal itself when treated properly. That food freedom is possible. And that none of us need fall prey to chronic food-borne illness.

NOTE: Under no circumstances should anyone undertake a water-only fast of any length without the medical supervision of a trained professional. In other words, please do not try this at home.

Intermittent Fasting 101: A Guide to its Health Benefits & Risks – Food Revolution Network

SUMMARY:

Intermittent fasting is the latest wellness trend, weight loss fad, or aggressive biohack, depending on who’s talking about it. Celebrities, elite athletes, and medical researchers have made it a household term, but there’s still plenty of confusion about what it means. In this article, we’ll cover the basics of intermittent fasting, what the studies tell us are its potential risks and benefits, and basic guidelines for how to try it safely.

Have you ever been on a diet? Weight Watchers, Mediterranean, DASH, MIND, Atkins, South Beach, Paleo, keto, macrobiotic, vegan, and others are focused on what you do or don’t eat — and/or how much. But what if  another factor was also important to weight loss and health? Proponents of a modern-day wellness trend, intermittent fasting, claim to have found that factor: when you eat.

Interest in intermittent fasting has exploded over the past four years. Many celebrities swear by its ability to help them lose weight, have more energy, and feel better.  Proponents claim that intermittent fasting can promote steady weight loss, prolong life span, and improve quality of life. You’ve probably heard of fasting — not eating for prolonged periods of time on purpose. But what exactly is intermittent fasting? Is it a diet? An eating pattern? A short-term hack, or a long-term lifestyle? In this article, we’re going to explore different approaches to intermittent fasting, as well as its potential benefits and risks. Think of this as Intermittent Fasting 101.

Brief History of Fasting

What are the origins of intermittent fasting? Humans, like many animals, have fasted for most of our existence on this planet. But instead of calling it fasting, for most of human history, it was called “going hungry.” Our ancestors often had a limited food supply and frequently had to go without food for long periods. For them, fasting wasn’t a health fad at all. Rather, it was a part of normal life — and sometimes, if it went on for long enough, a part of death.

Fasting by choice, on the other hand, has been a practice for thousands of years, generally for physical and spiritual renewal, as penitence for sins, or to develop self-control. Many religious traditions incorporate fasting, for as little as a day, but for as long as 40 days at a stretch. Fasting as a form of political protest in the form of hunger strikes is also common. And therapeutic fasting, specifically intended to treat or prevent ill health and chronic conditions, became popular in the 19th century.
