Dr. Frank Sabatino on Healing with Water Fasting and Plant-Based Nutrition

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to meet and hang out with Dr. Frank Sabatino, Director of Balance for Life, a plant-based nutrition and water fasting retreat center in Deerfield Beach, Florida. 

Dr. Sabatino is an expert in water fasting, plant-based nutrition and holistic health care. He has over 40 years of wisdom and expertise helping patients heal chronic disease and has overseen over 10,000 people through therapeutic water fasting. Dr. Sabatino is brilliant teacher and caregiver.

This was a fun and fascinating interview. Enjoy!
