We have all heard the statistics chronic conditions including obesity, hypertension, diabetes, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and heart and kidney disease are bankrupting our country. Medical intervention can only do so much. Changes in lifestyle and diet could prevent many of the chronic diseases taxing our healthcare system and economy.  


Currently more than 100 million adults are living with diabetes or pre-diabetes in the U.S. The American Diabetes Association analysis indicates the total direct cost of diabetes in the U.S. in 2017 was $237 BILLION with the average cost being $16,752 per patient. Our mission is to be part of the solution.
