IAHP-certified Drug-free Physicians List
Dr. Goldhamer Dr. Cridland Center for Conservative Therapy Dr. Fuhrman

Are you looking for a detoxification specialist? Using no drugs?
Here is an international list of doctors certified in fasting and detox diets.

Therapeutic fasting is sometimes called "water fasting". IAHP-certified members have completed an internship in this specialty.
They also are specialized in "juice fasting", "juice diets", raw vegan diets and other detoxifying diets and programs. Another term is "hygienic care".

("hygienic" = "according to the science of health", ---- The term "therapeutic" is controversial in the US, but not internationally. In the US, the medical industry wants it to apply to drug-therapies only.)

Fasting is mainly used for health improvement, and is an important alternative to drug therapy and surgery. In addition fasting and detoxification diets are often used for successfully losing weight, gaining weight and overcoming addictions.

A Healthy Society With Limited Medical Costs is Possible
"The economy of our society is being weighted down by an expensive and largely ineffective medical system that relies on expensive tests, treatments and last minute heroics to attempt to combat the harmful effects of a rich, disease causing diet..."   Dr. Joel Fuhrman

patient letters
"The results are miraculous! I know without a doubt, that If my son had not been persistent and had I not made the sacrificial effort to take this step forward to seek your care, I shudder to imagine what state my health would have been by now. ....... Thank you, Dr Goldberg for showing me how to restore my health, and the possibility I can experience quality of life that I thought was no longer an option available to me. I thank God for bringing you and your expertise into my path as I travel through my journey through life....."
