The doctors of chiropractic and medicine affiliated with True North Health Education Center have been conducting ongoing scientific research involving the use of fasting and a health promoting diet and lifestyle program in the treatment of numerous clinical conditions including High Blood Pressure and Diabetes. In June of 2001, our 12-year study, completed in conjunction with our colleagues at Cornell University, was published in the scientific, peer-reviewed and indexed, Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics. The paper, entitled Medically Supervised Water-only Fasting in the Treatment of Hypertension(you should read this if you have problems!), detailed our outstanding results in the treatment of 174 consecutive program participants presenting with high blood pressure.

Our study demonstrated the remarkable effectiveness of water-only fasting in the treatment of the leading contributing cause of morbidity and mortality in industrialized countries. A second study evaluating the effectiveness of fasting in the treatment of borderline high blood pressure was accepted for publication and appeared in the October 2002 issue of the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.
Based on the remarkable success demonstrated in these studies, the TrueNorth Health Education Center’s program, including fasting, has been included as a fully covered benefit by a major labor union (International Union of Operating Engineers). We are currently conducting a prospective study to evaluate the clinical and cost of medical care outcomes resulting from the use of fasting by persons with diabetes and high blood pressure.
