WHO IS LEADING THIS? I am Dr. Patterson Stark, DC, FASLM and Specialist in Lifestyle Medicine. In the future will be facilitating a three day water fast, medically supervised for your safety, in an open format on Zoom to support and inspire each participant. Learn how to use this valuable tool to reboot your health - no matter what the challenges. The medical benefits of fasting are backed by solid science.
WHEN DOES IT START?
Please, go to the contact us section and say your interested in more information. Then, when we have a good group we with start and subsequently, every day @ 11am, meeting on Zoom for a total of six, 30-40 minute Workshops. Numbers are limited so do it for yourself now!
I will personally contact each participant before the start date to insure you are medically cleared to do a water fast - your safety comes first! I will ask you why you want to do a water fast, and details of any health problems you may have. If you are on medications, I need to know what they are and how long you have been on them. If I feel in my best judgement that it's just not right for you to do this, your fees will be refunded and you will still be able to keep the e-book plus links to educational videos.
Lastly, understand most people can easily do a 3 day water fast. It is one of the quickest and most dramatic ways to reset the body's internal clock - improving health in all areas.
HOW THIS WORKS
Thursday evening will be your last meal and we will be ending on the Sunday evening with our first meal. I will lead you on how the correct foods are re-introduced over the following 3 days.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
You will learn how your "survival genes" are turned on and what is happening as your system "reboots" to better health. You will learn how to better take care of your immune system. You will be educated on the science and difference between intermittent fasting, Fasting Mimicking Diets, Medically Supervised, Patient Extended Fasting and others.
Once you "reboot" most people find 3 days is an easy, efficient way of giving energy like never before.
Please read the comments from our last supervised water fast below to see the multitude of positive changes people experienced. You too can have your own results in just a week. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions before you sign up - otherwise... see you there!
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Current worldwide patients under my care receive $25 off the price as they are on yearly programs with Stark Health Centre and Dr. Stark - this is an additional bonus program.
For all others, the fee of $75.00 NZD payable in advance of the Workshop covers the six sessions, all materials supplied, a copy of Dr. Stark's e-book: Live Now - Die Later, Stark Health, and the ability to contact Dr. Stark at anytime during your fast and reintegration diet with questions at no extra cost.
Lastly, if you are ever unhappy with the information or services provided, we will refund your fees - no questions asked.
OVERVIEW OF THE LAST 3-DAY SUPERVISED WATER FAST
We have had over 30 people participate in our 3-Day Medically Supervised Water Fast - excellent! Daily Zoom Meetings were the high point for me as the facilitator. People's willingness and eagerness to share what they were experiencing brought a whole new dynamic and vibrancy to the workshop. These "SMA's" (Shared Medical Appointments) are the wave of the future to build communities with common interests and support for each other to make changes that positively affect personal health.
We met during the 3 days fasting then 3 more days of coming off the fast, back to a regular diet that promotes a much higher level of digestive, mental and physical health.
It was an honour to lead such a great group from all over the world.

PERSONAL RESPONSES TO THE 3 DAY WATER FAST - here are just a few comments.
"The three day water fast was an incredibly challenging yet extraordinarily positive experience for me. Patterson was a terrific guide through this process and I know I could not have made it without his daily medical guidance and coaching. His approach of group communication made the fast totally doable and I am better for it. I would recommend this program for anyone looking to elevate their relationship with food and their bodies. I am now on the other side of the program and am reaping the benefits; more energy, enhanced mood, positivity and an overall “lighter” feeling in my mind and body. My relationship with food has improved considerably."

"This was my first time fasting. My body felt substantially lighter, stronger and younger at the end of fasting, but the most interesting part of the fast for me was mental. Understanding where cravings come from and seeing them from a detached perspective is something that will stay with me for a long time.
The confidence that my body can survive without being a slave to the next meal or blood pressure fluctuation was a profound realization. The careful reintroduction of prescribed food has also made me all the more conscious of my daily food intake.
I could not have done this on my own. Patterson is a superb guide. The daily meetings were an essential part of the process for both motivation and learning about the body’s feedback. In the future, I will use what I learned in this experience to fast on a yearly (or even Bi-yearly) basis."

"I have just completed the 3 day water fast under Dr. Patterson Stark's supervision and the results have been very encouraging. The rosacea on my face has diminished considerably and I used to take pain killers every night for arthritic pain in my hips. However since starting the fast and now 4 days after completing the fast I have not had any pain in my hips at night. Amazing!"
Pauline V-C. Auckland, NZ
"I did the 3 day water fast following instructions which for me included still taking my medication and supplements. I felt fine and slept well throughout, except a little tired on the third day when watched a couple of movies and had a pampering soak in the bath. I came out of the fast really engergised but calm, and a week later this hasn't changed."
Gay R., Marlborough Sounds, NZ
"Thank you for your guidance and all the time you put into leading us along the way of this fast!
As someone with high cholesterol and some chronic aches, I was looking to see if fasting would alter them, along with that - I was curious to see what it is like to do a water fast.
What I got in the end is a sense of cleanness inside and out, my chronic neck pain is GONE, and I feel calmer. I am filled with joy!
Its been awesome, not all easy, and would do it again- definitely."
Charrette vE, Christchurch, New Zealand
"A short testing time for a long term benefit.
Having completed a 5 day fast under supervision with Dr. Patterson Stark I have come out with significant stamina gains, effective weight loss and a body that feels 20 years younger."
Peter vE, Christchurch, New Zealand
