Description

In The Fasting Fix , Dr. Andreas Michalsen--one of the world's leading experts on fasting--lays out the clear, indisputable science that fasting, when combined with a healthy diet, is the key to healing chronic illnesses and living longer. Dr. Michalsen draws from his decades of medical practice and original, cutting-edge scientific research, along with his deep knowledge about the human body and evolutionary history to distill the simple truth about what we should eat and how we should eat in order to live healthier, longer lives. Dr. Michalsen explains exactly which foods we should eat and which we should avoid. And he introduces several different, simple methods of fasting for you to choose from and easily incorporate into your everyday life. With stories from patients he has successfully treated and detailed treatment programs for the most common chronic diseases--obesity, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, arthrosis, rheumatism, irritable bowel syndrome, skin diseases, allergies and asthma, migraines, depression, neurological diseases, dementia and Alzheimer's disease, and cancer--Dr. Michalsen shows us why other diets have failed, and how we can finally be healthy.

Critic Reviews

“Praise for The Nature Cure "Michalsen advocates for and explains the science behind leeching, fasting, meditation, yoga, and vegetarianism. I loved it." --New York "Most people don''t know that water actually can promote healing in other ways besides quenching our thirst. . . . [Michalsen] discusses how we can use the practice of hydrotherapy in our everyday lives, as well as the importance of using water as a healing tool." --MindBodyGreen "Full of science and research, [Dr. Michalsen] returns to the earth and shares how we, too, can use the natural world around us to feel better." --Read It Forward "Integration of conventional medicine and naturopathic medicine makes good sense. Dr. Andreas Michalsen believes, as I do, in the healing power of nature. In this informative book, he demonstrates the safety and efficacy of time-honored methods of optimizing health and treating illness, including dietary adjustment, applications of heat and cold, the use of natural remedies, fasting, and therapies derived from Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. I recommend it to practitioners and patients alike." --Andrew Weil, MD, author of Eight Weeks to Optimum Health and Mind Over Meds "A wonderful resource to guide anyone seeking to improve their health or reverse the suffering from chronic disease." --Terry Wahls, MD, author of The Wahls Protocol "[Dr. Michalsen] is one of the best doctors of natural medicine I have ever known. His therapies are based on solid scientific and clinical pillars. In the field of therapeutic fasting, his clinic in Berlin is among the most prestigious in the world and is at the forefront of experimentation and implementation of new scientific discoveries on patients with diseases ranging from hypertension, diabetes, cancer, to multiple sclerosis. This is a book that brings us toward a new approach to medicine, a book that is not to be missed." --Valter Longo, PhD, author of The Longevity Diet "Here is a clear and straightforward guide to healing like no other in print. Professor Michalsen is a world expert in natural health approaches and now he makes his wisdom available to all. A wonderful book that will help anyone who reads it heal." --Wayne B. Jonas, MD, author of How Healing Works "Essential reading for anyone interested in living a long and healthy life. Filled with compelling research and gripping stories of his own patients, Dr. Michalsen reveals the simple and accessible changes we can make to live well." --Dr. Qing Li, author of Forest Bathing "Dr. Andreas Michalsen has impeccable medical credentials and has been curing thousands upon thousands of patients for more than thirty years. With The Nature Cure , we now all have access to his wisdom on preventing and treating diseases. This scientifically-based and accessible book will help to transform lives as it contains a multitude of actionable recommendations to reverse and prevent multiple diseases." --Lorenzo Cohen, PhD, professor and director of the Integrative Medicine Program at MD Anderson Cancer Center and co-author of Anticancer Living "A professor of clinical complementary medicine at the Charit”
