RECLAIM YOUR HEALTH - Health & Wellness Expo  (Click for program details)    

WE HAVE A HEALTH CRISIS AROUND US!


The last few years have led to a new bleak reality among a great number of people in our population - too many people are neglecting their physical health and mental well-being. As a result, many lifestyle diseases are becoming dominating factors in these people’s lives.  Health issues and concerns such as cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and depression & anxiety, among many other things, are burdening the lives of men and women, and stealing away they joy they should have sharing life with family and friends. 


Yet, not all hope is lost because of these alarming facts. The good news is that there are numerous positive health principles, accessible to everyone, that can support the maintenance of good health and longevity without chronic debilitating diseases. Over the years, many studies have shown that by practicing these essential health principles, the risk of certain chronic diseases and negative health outcomes can be be reduced. 

 

How can we learn these health principles, you ask? 


You have come to the right place. 


Welcome to “Reclaim Your Health”, a Health and Wellness Expo sharing the principles of NEWSTART - the eight “laws” of health and wellness!

WHAT IS A HEALTH EXPO?


One of the ongoing tragedies of the 21st century is that the number of people dying prematurely continues to grow. An even more tragic fact is that many of those people would still be alive, were they only given access to knowledge about how to lead healthier lives. Health Expos have been created as a way to bring that knowledge to as many people as possible.

 

Based on scientifically-proven health principles, our Health Expo is an interactive health and wellness educational event designed as a community service to provide basic health education to residents in the community being served.  


The Health Expo consists of a variety of health booths and exhibits that educate on numerous aspects of health, wellness, fitness and lifestyle improvements. At these booths, a participant can expect to receive basic health education on aspects of living a healthy lifestyle, sample wholesome plant-based food, take simple health assessments and evaluations, and receive encouragement and counsel regarding making lifestyle changes for positive health outcomes. 


The Health Expo model to be shared at “Reclaim Your Health”, simple as it might be, has been successfully used around the world with population groups of more than 40 languages. People from all walks of life have benefited from the various screening procedures and quality health information on each of the topics presented during the events. 


This Health & Wellness Expo will combine an interactive experience of health education at the 8-12 booths, or health stations, along with instructional education through presentations made by an experienced Health Professional and Educator.

FORGIVE TO LIVE  (Click for program details)    

FORGIVE TO LIVE 

Your Life. Unshackled.


Holding on to anger is like swallowing a poison pill… and hoping the other person dies. It is a deadly dilemma, but there is a solution.


FORGIVE TO LIVE can help you start a better journey.


Everyone has a story about unfair, unjust and painful treatment. Now you can learn how forgiveness can rewrite your story and save your life!



Everyone has a story to tell.  Some stories inspire and encourage, while other stories are hurtful, leaving deep wounds on the heart, mind and body.  Almost everyone has been told that forgiveness is important, however, most of us have never been shown how to forgive. 


In this 6-part small group community workshop, you will learn that forgiveness can literally save your life.  Ground-breaking research by Dr. Dick Tibbits has revealed that the failure or the inability to forgive creates an inner anger that disturbs our emotional, physical, and  spiritual well-being and can actually lead to an array of ailments - depression, stress, heart disease, and broken relationships. 


But, you can take steps right now to be free… REALLY FREE!


We welcome you to join the FORGIVE TO LIVE workshop!



What content does this workshop cover?


The FORGIVE TO LIVE workshop will consider the following questions, and more:


- How Expensive is a Grievance Story?

- Have you been your own worst enemy?

- It is really  possible to reframe the past?

- You said your life is whose fault?

- How can I make anger work for me?

- It is chance or choice that determines my future?

- Does the past really exist?



What have others said?


“I loved the course and the great peace of mind too!” - Trina


“I found healing and gained great peace and strength.”   - Sandra


We look forward to helping you FORGIVE TO LIVE!

Healthy Lifestyle & Disease Reversal Seminars

DIABETES UNDONE  (Click for program details)    

A diabetes epidemic is plaguing our world. Millions of people have diabetes or prediabetes all over the globe. These conditions significantly increase the risk of cardiovascular diseas and other complications. Many people think that this disease is a chronic, incurable disease, and that diabetics must surrender to the idea that they will struggle with the disease for the rest of their lives. But, what would happen if the underlying causes were addressed, and not the symptoms only? 

The typical standard of care for type-2 diabetes today is blood sugar management by using medication and  by reducing sugar intake as much as possible. However, for most type-2 diabetics, it's not production of insulin that's a problem or even sugar for that matter - it's insulin resistance, a condition where insulin in your body becomes increasingly less effective as time goes on. 

The good news is that insulin resistance CAN be reversed! It has been scientifically proven that you can experience dramatic health improvement, freedom from many medications, and even disease reversal itself - all by adhering to a healthy lifestyle

This practical workshop explains how and why a person becomes insulin resistant and how to reverse this condition using simple, basic, lifestyle choices.  Understanding the power in your lifestyle is the crucial first step in reversing your type-2 diabetes or pre-diabetes. You can begin to reverse diabetes, right now, immediately - all without outrageous costs, without drugs, and without surgery. At the end of the day, the power to prevent and reverse your disease lies right in your hands

Welcome to Diabetes Undone!    Welcome to hope and the start of your new health story!

WHO IS PRESENTING THIS WORKSHOP

Dr. Wes Youngberg, DrPH, has been working with diabetics for over twenty-five years. He has found that, by addressing the cause of illness rather than just treating the symptoms, type 2 diabetics can experience dramatic health improvements, avoid complications, and possibly even reverse the condition. Dr. Youngberg is the author of Goodbye Diabetes, and serves as an assistant clinical professor, and he will lead out in the main instructional portions of this program.

Brenda Davis, RD, is a world-renown author, and plant-based dietician. She will contribute meaningfully in the areas of the program focussed on healthy eating and cooking. 

Local Volunteer Coordinator and Health Partners will help to facilitate your journey in this seminar by connecting with you and helping the seminar to be understandable and practical, and your participation enjoyable and successful. 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN AND RECEIVE

The Diabetes Undone workshop provides participants with inspiring wellness talks, expert advice, a participant's workbook and journal, a plant-based cookbook, group support, cooking demos, and informational visual media presentations access. Participants learn how to form new habits and make better choices based on increased knowledge, skills, and encouragement. The program is designed to empower participants to optimize powerful lifestyle strategies to reclaim their health. 

Not a type-2 diabetic or prediabetic? No problem! The same strategies that are taught to fight diabetes also combat heart disease, obesity, cancer, autoimmune disease, and many other lifestyle-related health conditions.
