Tired of Hearing The Medical Status Quo? Back the Journalism of Fasting

I'm writing a book on fasting, but I need some amazing backers to make it happen.

My plan is to go on a 25-day fast under the supervision of Dr. Doug Graham and use it for part of my book, which will tackle the neglected topic of fasting from the health and spiritual perspectives.

I've already discussed the idea with Doug, and he's excited about the project.

For more detail on the book and how you can get behind it, please see the project page


Why Should You Care?

Flip open a newspaper or put on the 6 o'clock news - you're not going to find any information on fasting. Despite its impressive track record as a healing modality, it remains a heavily-neglected subject.

Try to find a single really great book on fasting and you're going to strike out - I've recently tried doing just this and ended my search in frustration. There's enough information out there to tantalize you at the possibilities, but no in-print book has ever seriously tackled the subject.

If you think the spread of empowering health information is important, then this is the project for you.

Will You Help Me Spread The Word?

This project won't get off the ground without your help. Although I hope you will all sign on as backers, it's just as important that the word get out. Please email your family, friends and coworkers, and if you participate in forums, email lists, blogs or other websites, please spread the word there as well. Even just a few words and a link on facebook can make a difference.

I've found this is a topic that fascinates people even more than the idea of raw foods, and you need not restrict your message to those who are raw foodists or vegetarians.

Thanks very much for your assistance.
