"Doug Graham Costa Rica... One women died there when she bit her cheek."

I saw this posted in the GITMR archives.  I hope it's okay to post here.  Just hoping someone could comment on validity of the situation(s)...

"Doug Graham
Costa Rica
Typically only 2 fasts per year.  Sign up online.  $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.   Expensive though.

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 dentist.
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 drugs.
She requested that they give her child's dose of medications.
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 specific?
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.
I don't think she would have died without the meds.

For instance if you drunk jugs of water on a fast - you would become enervated and actually have annoying problems with your digestion of the water. You'd feel it glugging and slushing around in your stomach for ages.

Where as sipping water whenever you are thirsty ensures normal hydration and safe kidney action.

Someone who can't drink water at all - needs to be drip fed water with like one of those eye droppers sort of thing.

I know that people have died fasting without going to the hospital - but this might be Herbert Shelton- and they've died without medical intervention - but it could be perhaps they don't have enough vital energy left - and they were going to die no matter what they did.

People die . ... we born we die... ain't no amount of carbs going to keep u alive when your energy has been spent.

If you good diagnoser you can see the vital energy in a person and if they have latent energy to eliminate their crap and continue life after fast.

I'd never supervise the fast of a "deathly" looking person. Ain't no magic cures.

--What i consider deathly is a criteria of a whole picture nature cure diagnostic system.--

It would be quite a scary prospect taking on any old patient in this day and age - even if they had thousands of bucks.
I did not intend to spread ANY rumors, Dr. Graham. Someone posted the message on another forum and I only posted it here to clear things up. I was more interested in DEBUNKING the rumor. Thank you for responding.
Thank you, Dr Graham! :-)
