Think back to when you were first diagnosed with your chronic illness. Were you scared? Did your doctor provide compassionate care and listen to your questions, or did they rush through your appointment and wave you away with an illegible prescription? Now think about the time that has passed between your first dose of medicine and today – have you actually gotten better? Have you collected even more medications along the way?
Chronic illness doesn’t have to be a life sentence, and most importantly, you don’t have to fight it alone. There is a way to reverse and heal osteoporosis, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases, through compassionate medical care and simple dietary changes.
For almost 35 years, people have enrolled in our residential health programs to receive the cure for their chronic illness. They’ve invested significant amounts of money, taken time off from work, lived away from their families for weeks at a time, and made other huge sacrifices to receive help for their health needs. Though there have been miraculous results, the challenges and sacrifices to attend in-person programs are too high for many people. Effective health care shouldn’t be prohibitive; this life-changing information should be accessible to everyone.
That’s why my team and I developed the 12-Day McDougall Program, which brings professional medical care right into your home. I, along with my fellow board-certified physicians and the entire McDougall team, will empower you with real-world nutritional guidance, cooking demonstrations, practical exercise routines, psychological support and compassionate motivation to reverse chronic illnesses and diseases such as:
Learning from home will allow you to immediately apply what you’ve learned, practice in your own kitchen and get direct guidance from the entire McDougall team as questions come up. This is the exact environment where you’ll be challenged in your everyday life, and we’ll be there with you every step of the way to help set you up for lasting success.
We are also limiting attendance to 50 participants per session so that we can provide you with the personal attention and support you need for these powerful and transformational changes to your lifestyle.
Here is what’s possible for you with the 12-Day McDougall Program:
Many times patients come to us after having tried absolutely everything to heal their chronic illnesses. They’ve done the keto diet, month-long water fasts and vegan diets including fake meats, cheeses and other highly processed foods. They’ve tried to survive off of salads which leave them hungry with little energy. None of it works.
We’ve worked with thousands of patients over the last 50 years to develop and refine the most effective life-changing tools that successfully reverse and heal chronic diseases. As a member of the 12-Day McDougall Program, you’ll have access to:
