Dr André Kruger (The Fast Doctor) is an complimentary health practitioner and Medical Doctor who manages the Hoogland Health Hydro fasting retreat in South Africa. He has many years experience in assisting people to fast on water and due to his in depth knowledge of alopathic medicine as well as complementary medicine he is extremly well equipped to support clients with complex medical issues who are on various forms of medical drugs. In his understanding of health he does not believe that complimentary medicine and alopathic medicine are necessarily mutually exclusive. Although he prefers the natural approach to healing, he suggests that there are some instances when conventional medicine can be of benefit in the healing process. Dr Kruger's definition of fasting like most Natural Hygienists, is water only and he believes in what he calls an Active approach to fasting where ellimination cycles are performed in order to assist the body to get rid of toxins by way of sweating. He has found this approach to vastly improve the experience of his clients who fast under his supervision. For more information on his ellimination cycles please go to the faq qestion: 'Active Fasting'
Dr Kruger has been a Fasting Connection member for 7 years and really enjoys supporting the fasting community by contributing to this site's forum as much time as his heavy schedule permits. He modertes the forum category "Posts for The Fast Doctor"
It is a great asset to have Dr Kruger contribute to the forum as much as he does, so we ask you to please be considerate and respect his time by avoiding as much as possible asking repeat questions which have already been covered by him in the forum. Also if you feel that you need his supervision or a consultation for a personal health issue or you would like him to supervise your fast please contact him directly as his professional services are independent of Fasting Connection products and services, but also be aware that this will probably incur a consultation fee. You can also purchase his e-book Health Won on our shop page.
