THE MORNING SHOW
Rev. Steven A. Bailey, ND
Fasting is a health practice which allows the body to go through spiritual and physical metamorphoses. Christ, Buddha, Mohamed, Plato, Socrates, Mark Twain, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr. all used fasting as a way to reach optimum physical and spiritual health. The process of fasting has a myriad of health benefits from detoxification to allergy detection.
If done correctly fasting is a pleasurable experience which allows the body time to relax from the rigors of normal digestion and to heal itself.
Dr. Bailey’s knowledge of fasting has led to nationwide recognition, including being used as an expert source on fasting in the “Definitive Guide to Alternative Medicine” in addition to Dr. Bailey’s own book on the subject, “The Fasting Diet”.
Rev. Steven A. Bailey, ND has practiced Naturopathic Medicine in Portland since 1983. In Addition to his general family practice, he specializes in fasting and immune support and works extensively with patients who have chronic and terminal illnesses. Dr. Bailey lectures locally, nationally, and internationally on a variety of medical topics, and is a frequent guest lecturer at naturopathic colleges and conferences.
A strong historical and political perspective colors Dr. Bailey’s awareness. While paying respect to the elders of traditional medicine, he stays abreast of medical science and naturopathic medicine.
