In this course you’ll learn about the history of fasting practices, how to separate the facts from the myths surrounding fasting, and what the scientific research says about this subject. At the end, we will put the different types of fasting into context to determine which, if any, could be better for you in case you decide you’d like to implement fasts into your health practice.
