< back to courses

Come and explore the various merits of juice diets and therapeutic fasting as effective practices towards achieving optimal health!

This engaging presentation will look at the medical and scientific research, as well as case histories, to demonstrate why certain health problems respond so well to therapeutic fasting. Looking at the significant biochemical changes involved in the fasting process, participants will gain an understanding of those processes that contribute to and enhance the body’s healing mechanisms.

The workshop also covers important considerations, such as the safe length to fast at home, how to safely monitor the fasting process, and when fasting is not appropriate.

This workshop is suitable for anyone with an interest in learning about therapeutic fasting and overall optimal health and wellbeing.

About The Trainer – Doug Evans

Osteopath Dr Doug Evans has been working in the field of Natural Health for over 35 years. Initially studying Naturopathy in 1977, Doug diverged and went on to graduate as an Osteopath and Chiropractor in 1983. Drawn to the gentle, more holistic approach of osteopathy, Doug resonated with the emphasis on nutrition and lifestyle, making this a focus of his practice. During his career, Doug has practiced at two residential health centres with a focus on improving health, and in many cases reversing chronic degenerative diseases with fasting and lifestyle medicine/whole food plant based diet.  Firstly, with Dr Alec Burton at Arcadia Health Centre, who was considered to be one of the world’s leading experts in Natural Health care, nutrition and fasting.  Then at Hopewood Health Centre where he was responsible for providing osteopathic treatments, supervising health recovery, nutritional and fasting programs. Doug shares his knowledge and experience through his private practice as well as seminars and group presentations.    

Participants receive a certificate upon completion.
