Dr. Michael Klaper’s 55-minute presentation, “Fasting,” is lively and informative.


Having supervised many hundreds of fasts, Dr. Michael Klaper, one of the world’s foremost authorities on nutrition and health, explains the benefits and procedures of fasting and answers relevant questions.

This video is for you if you’re concerned about any of the following chronic health problems: high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), cystitis, type 2 diabetes (diabetes mellitus), migraine headaches, Crohn’s disease, colitis, angina pectoris.


For thousands of years, philosophers, scientists and physicians have used fasting as a healing process to reverse illness and disease. Today, and particularly in Western cultures, poor eating habits and high-fat, high-sugar foods are causing numerous chronic health problems. At the same time, many people are fasting and maintaining health-supporting diets to reverse deficiencies caused by non-nutritive food products and toxic lifestyles.


Understand the benefits and proper procedures for fasting. Understand who can benefit from fasting, who should not fast, how to prepare for a fast, what to expect during a fast, when and how to take a break from fasting, what to eat after fasting to maintain your health.

“Excellent content and presentation! I write very few product reviews on Amazon, but this DVD deserves my full-throated recommendation. Simply put, I could not have expected a more clear, knowledgeable and effective presentation on fasting. Dr. Klaper brings to bear the full weight of his impressive clinical experience, medical expertise, research, and eloquence to this latest effort. The result: a brilliant, cogent, informative, instructional, professional, and entertaining discussion on fasting by one of the leading experts on nutrition and health. Anyone interested in this topic should watch this DVD.”


“This is the most brilliant presentation I’ve ever seen! Thank you!”

Nicole Bennett

Everything you need to know about a fast and more…I found this DVD by Dr. Klaper extremely useful. The clear, detailed instruction of how to fast, who should fast, when to fast, etc. has all the information you need for conducting a fast at home or at a facility such as True North Health Center. It is inspiring and powerful. It made me want to do a fast again, having done a five day water fast several years ago at True North. Fasting is one of the truly remarkable modalities for many health problems, as outlined in this DVD. Dr. Klaper has such clarity in his presentation. I would highly recommend this DVD for anyone considering doing a fast. Amazing how the body can heal itself with nothing but water!
