A healthier diet can reverse disease, heal the planet and holds the key to a successful, fulfilling life. Join nutritionally-oriented physician, Michael Klaper, M.D. as he explores the realities of our current dietary patterns and how simple changes in our daily meals can benefit our physical and spiritual hearts – and reduce suffering in our lives and the lives of beings around the world. Dr. Klaper currently serves on the staff of the TrueNorth Health Center in Santa Rosa, California, a nutritionally-based medical clinic specializing in therapeutic fasting and health improvement through a whole-foods, plant-based diet.
Dr. Michael Klaper graduated from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago in 1972. He served his medical internship at Vancouver General Hospital in British Columbia, Canada and undertook additional training in surgery, anesthesiology, orthopedics and obstetrics at the University of California Hospitals in San Francisco.
As Dr. Klaper's medical career progressed, he began to realize that many of the diseases his patients brought to his office—clogged arteries (atherosclerosis) high blood pressure (hypertension), obesity, adult onset diabetes, and even some forms of arthritis, asthma, and other significant illnesses—were made worse, or actually caused, by the high-fat, overly processed Standard American Diet (SAD).
This prompted him to undertake a serious study of the link between diet and disease, eventually leading him to implement nutritionally based therapies in his practice. The results were dramatic. Nearly all of his patients who followed his dietary, exercise, and stress reduction programs soon became leaner and more energetic, while their elevated blood pressures and cholesterol levels returned to safer values. (In twelve weeks on this same program, Dr. Klaper's own cholesterol dropped from 242 mg/dl to 140mg/dl, while a 22-pound "spare tire" of abdominal fat melted away, all without dieting or calorie
He also observed that many of the chronic diseases mentioned above improved or resolved completely, often allowing his patients to reduce or discontinue their medication entirely.
