STRONG DIET & EXERCISE HABITS ARE THE FOUNDATIONS OF HEALTH:  We all know we need to create and sustain healthy habits of eating, sleeping, and exercise.  But many of us are too stressed or busy to learn and sustain good habits.  Sometimes we make New Year’s resolutions,  join a gym or try a fad diet, but we fail because we lack the sustained, experienced support and accountability we need to break bad habits and sustain new ones.  This puts us at high risk for chronic pain and illnesses: digestive problems (excess weight/obesity,  acid reflux, ulcers, irritable bowel), heart disease, cancer, diabetes, depression, anxiety, arthritis, allergies, back pain, etc.

WHAT MAKES THIS COURSE WORK:  Numerous studies show you are much more successful creating and sustaining new diet and exercise habits when you have the following practical supports provided by the Healthy Habits Course:

  • ASSES YOUR BASELINE:  help documenting your current diet & exercise strengths & challenges; we’ll help you track

    • how many high carb dishes you eat daily

    • how many high nutrient dishes you eat daily

    • when you eat (regular meal times promote health)

    • how much you exercise

    • how much sleep you’re getting

  • SET GOALS:  help setting doable, measurable eating & exercise goals

  • INTERDISCIPLINARY EXPERT EDUCATION & SUPPORT:  weekly support of a group of experienced, inter-disciplinary experts to help you learn and adapt very specific diet and exercise strategies tailored to your goals and abilities

  • PEER SUPPORT:  the opportunity to have a peer support team and to help and be helped by peers sharing your questions, struggles, victories, and knowledge each week, and possibly walking or cooking together

  • MEASURE & CELEBRATE PROGRESS:  each week you’ll document & report on your progress, celebrate victories, and get support for adjusting your goals & actions


Section 1: LOSE WEIGHT & Improve Digestion

(4 Week Series: 1/13 - 2/3)

Section 2: IMPROVE HEART HEALTH & Sexual Vitality

(4 Week Series: 2/10 - 3/3)

Section 3: IMPROVE STRESS & MOOD (Depression, Anxiety & Alzheimers)

(4 Week Series: 3/10 - 3/31)

Section 4: REDUCE INFLAMMATION, Allergies, & Chronic Pain

(4 Week Series: 4/7- 4/28)

Each section includes four classes taught by different kinds of experts and designed to give you an integrated, holistic approach to creating healthy habits related to the goals of that section.  The four specialized classes offered in each section include:

  • 1st Week NUTRITION: what to eat & avoid based on your goals & constitution

  • 2nd Week COOKING: how to cook highly nutritious, delicious foods you’ll enjoy,

  • 3rd Week HERBALISM:  how to use traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic, & Western medicinal herbs to get faster, deeper results

  • 4th Week YOGA/QIGONG:  yoga & QiGong exercise routines that are gentle, simple, and designed to address your specific challenges & abilities.

We encourage you to take all four sections (16 weeks), because the information and skills build on one another, and get reinforced over a long enough period of time that you’ll be able to make changes and get real support from a variety of experts for actually sustaining those changes.  Of course you can drop-in for just one section or particular classes (see the detailed schedule below), but you’ll need to complete at least one full section to get help assessing your baseline, setting goals, tracking & celebrating progress, and developing a team of professionals and peers to provide you with on-going support outside of class.
