Many individuals who follow the Nutritarian diet write to Dr. Fuhrman about their success. Keep in mind that results vary from person to person. As always, consult your physician if you have a medical history and/or condition that may warrant individual recommendations.

Michael's Story

Michael had been suffering jaw discomfort tor the past 15 years and was amazed, when after gong on a fast for his overall health, his jaw ailment was healed    

Six years ago, j I went to see Dr Fuhrman as part of the Whole Foods Immersion program and it completely changed my life. I adopted a Nutritarian lifestyle for myself and my family and tell anyone who will listen, including my father-in-law who is a physician. He, in turn, has told countless patients about Dr. Fuhrman and his diet. However, the impetus for this message is to share an experience that has just happened. A chronic jaw pain that I've had for 15 years healed four days into a fast! The problem I had been having with my jaw is that it would grind and pop every time I opened my mouth. Whenever I went to the dentist, he would tell me he's never seen anything like it and suggests I go to a specialist. Thank goodness I never followed through on the idea of surgery!

 I was first interested in Dr. Fuhrman because of a book he wrote called "Fasting and Eating for Health."  Last week I read it through again for guidance because I was planning to undertake the longest fast, I've ever done, 6 days. I decided to fast not for my jaw but for my overall health, not thinking fasting could ever help my bones or joints to heal. Then on the fourth day of the fast an amazing thing happened. I was sitting at my desk working when I went to crack my own jaw, like usual, to get a second of relief, when to my surprise, I felt a sharp pain and when I opened my mouth again I realized that my jaw had popped back into place! No more grinding or popping! I am convinced that my fasting is the reason my body was able to heal itself from this chronic ailment. I had been was sure that this would be something I had to deal with for the rest of my life and never for one second thought that my body would be able to heal itself in this way.

I would also like to mention that when at the Immersion six years ago (which included breakfast, lunch and dinner) Dr Fuhrman said that we could eat as much of the food as we wanted, which I found surprising since I assumed he was going to talk about portion control. I took him up on that (unofficial) challenge and ate two full plates stacked with food and multiple deserts at every meal, and I still lost three pounds that week! I verified through my own experience that I can eat plenty of delicious food and still have good health.

I want to express my deep gratitude Dr. Fuhrman and the rest of the staff for all that you do. I think you are all engaged in the real work of healing and are witnesses for the rest of the medical profession.
