$4000 for 16 days. $10000 for 35 days. One women
died there when she bit her cheek. Her face swelled
up. Her parents took her to the hospital against
the advice of Doug and she died probably from
injections or something. I don't know the whole
story, this is what I remember from someone who was
there. This wasn't the only incident. Rave reviews
from everyone I've talked to including the guy who
saw this tragedy.

she bit her cheek."

It's a good idea to NOT spread rumors.
No one died.
This entire incident happened AFTER her 16-day fast
had ended, during the refeeding time.
A woman got an infection from biting her cheek.
I had asked the several times if she had done so,
because she had puffiness in her cheek, but she
insisted that she had not.
I contacted doctors, and actually brought two
doctors out to visit her, one an MD, and the other a
The dentist found the problem, (then the woman said,
"Oh yes, I DID bite my cheek,") and gave her meds.
They didn't do the job, so my wife took her to the
best hospital in Costa Rica.
My wife and the woman walked in to the hospital
together, each under their own power.
The hospital is totally modern, almost futuristic.
My wife explained to the staff that the woman had
been fasting, so she was extremely vulnerable to
She requested that they give her child's dose of
You know how medical doctors can be, they don't like
being told how to do their job.
They gave her a sedative while she was in the
hospital, and she stopped breathing for a few
minutes, resulting in her going into a coma.
I called the woman's parents, and suggested that
they come to Costa Rica.
I met with them, and stayed in touch with them.

I honestly believe I did all the right things, in
all the ways, in the right timing.
If such a situation were to come up again, I am
honestly not sure what I would do differently.

I know of no other incidents. Care to be more
Spreading rumors is never good, for anyone.

Thanks, Harley, for being the voice of reason.
So sorry to hear about your housemate.
I always emphasize that qualified supervision is
essential when fasting.

Comments: infections, if caught in time and do not
include sepsis, often respond well to high dose
antibiotic therapy. Did the advice to low dose
contribute to this woman's death?

Deaths after Graham's retreats: at least 2, with
people reporting at least 1 other - someone who was
insulin dependent. The people making those reports
say the news was covered up.
