Could be. Now I have this David Klein guy who is up
in arms after someone posted Leah's video on their
FB page. He said he heard Doug's side of it and this
was his "blame the victim because she didn't
disclose her health condition prior to fasting"
version of events:(yawn, where have we heard THAT
before Doug?)

Here is what I recently heard from Dr. Doug Graham:
Leah showed up in Costa with serious problems she
had not revealed.
In her pre-fast application she wrote that she was
having “some digestive problems.”
She arrived with longstanding bleeding ulcerative
So, she hid vital information and that was a serious
mistake on her part.
A fasting doctor needs a full and honest health
profile disclosure.
She was required to reveal the truth for her own
She elected to fast, and revealed her severe
condition to Dr. Graham, and elected to continue
with the fast.
Leah revealed that she had bled daily for a year
before coming to fast.
The bleeding stopped during the fast.
The day before she went to the hospital, Dr. Graham
reported that Leah took a long walk, the longest
she’d taken since before the fast began.
She seemed to be turning the corner for the best.
Then her condition took a downhill turn, and Dr.
Graham sent her to the hospital.
This can happen with any fasting case and any
ulcerative colitis healing process.
The hospital doctor said she was near death--they do
not understand fasting, detoxification and self-
The MDs probably would have said that of all the
fasters, the other 15 of whom were happy about this
year’s experience and are now thriving, according to
Dr. Graham.

(Below are David Klein's words)

In Dr. Graham’s assessment, she was not anywhere
near death.
I have done long fasts and appeared “near death.”
Death was not near.
Dr. Graham said he does not accept people with
bleeding ulcerative colitis--instead, he recommends
my Self Healing Colitis & Crohn's book and my
counseling by phone or Skype.
He would have referred her to me if she had done her
duty and revealed her debilitated bleeding
ulcerative colitis condition in her application.
I never recommend water fasting for ulcerative

I wrote this in the interest of fairly getting to
the truth in a just and rational way, and stopping
the defamatory, libelous allegations. Justice cannot
be served by one accusatory Youtube rant. I have no
interest in investigating the facts and judging this
issue. It’s not my business. I just wanted to report
on what the smeared party in this public “lynching”
had to say---the doctor who has successfully fasted
and saved the lives of thousands of people. As for
complaints about Dr. Graham’s manners, I suggest
that people take that up with him directly, rather
than complaining to your social media friends. I
also invite everyone to think deeply about this
long-held assertion of mine: the toughest job in the
world is caring for sickly people who are fasting.
If you have ever fasted with a group of people, some
of whom were recovering from illness, you might
understand and appreciate the fasting doctors in
this world a bit better.
