Santa Rosa, CA, August 20, 2020 - TrueNorth Health Foundation announced today a case report showing that water-only fasting and an exclusively whole-plant-food diet appeared to resolve a longstanding case of benign, facial seborrheic keratosis, commonly referred to as a “mole.”
The case report was published in the August 2020 issue of Alternative and Complementary Therapies. The report was written by three authors: Dr. Faye Alexandrakis, chiropractor at the TrueNorth Health Center; Dr. Alan Goldhamer, founder and director of the TrueNorth Health Center; and Toshia Myers, executive director of the TrueNorth Health Foundation.
“This case suggests that water-only fasting combined with an exclusively whole-plant-food diet may be an effective intervention in the treatment of seborrheic keratosis,” said Dr. Myers. “It provides a basis for further research.”
The report focused on a 68-year-old woman who had a benign seborrheic keratosis lesion on her right cheek for the past 10 years. It had grown larger over time but since it was not cancerous, she was not offered treatment.
