The Fast Way to Health (336 pages) by Dr. Frank McCoy
In 1923, Dr. McCoy wrote, “I have made a most exhaustive study of every method of cure from mind cure to modern surgery and gland therapy, and I have never found a single method that could approach even closely, in its results, the benefits which come from some form of the fasting cure.”
“As fasting is undertaken with the object of giving the body a chance to cure itself, it can be used in some form in the treatment of every acute or chronic disorder. I do not know of a disease where fasting is contra-indicated [not recommended].”
He then goes on to give fasting cures for 38 different diseases from acne to varicose veins, including diabetes, heart derangements, insomnia, kidney stones, and many more.
