If you need help or support, you can ask questions in the comments section of the program directed to Dr. Paris. You’re welcome to do a 5-day fast as often as once per month, but not more frequently. The general recommendation is once per month for three months. However, many people choose to do a fast twice a year, once a year, or every quarter/season.
