The McDougall Program is the only medical program that offers disease reversal and healing to people suffering from chronic illness such as type-2 diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and more, through professional care and a whole food, starch-based lifestyle.
Consider that for almost 40 years people have traveled by cars and planes from around the world to the McDougall residential programs in California, and then live away from family and work for almost two weeks “for the cure.” The results have been nothing short of miraculous, but the price to pay was too high for many people. Those days are gone: the McDougall Team has made changing almost effortless. We are now bringing into your home and workplace medical care by board-certified medical doctors, real-world dietary advice, creative cooking instructions, acceptable exercise routines, practical psychological support, and motivation from the entire McDougall Team. Not only is this the best way for you “To Make the Change,” but the entire 12-Day McDougall Program, including the medical care, is brought to you at less than half the cost as before! This is your unique opportunity to interact with the talented McDougall staff under the daily and direct guidance of John, Mary and Heather McDougall.

Join us for a 12-day in-depth interactive course on the life saving knowledge of the McDougall Program. Space is limited to only 40 participants to recreate the intimate setting that our in-person events are known for. This allows everyone to have ample time with our team of experts to have all of your questions answered.
During the course you’ll receive access to:
Prior to the program start we request that you get your bloodwork done. Your blood test will be reviewed by our medical director, Anthony Lim, MD, JD, or another McDougall-trained, board-certified physician. Please call a local laboratory and compare prices – they vary greatly.
Personal Medical Care
This is the strength of the McDougall Program. Our goals are to help you regain your lost health and appearance, reduce or stop all unnecessary medications and avoid “elective” surgery. Anthony Lim, MD, JD, or another McDougall-trained physician, will meet with you in a private one-on-one medical appointment to review your health assessment, discuss your health goals and identify the steps you can take to reach them. Additional time can be scheduled at your request*.
Live Interactive Lectures
John McDougall, MD, Anthony Lim, MD, JD, Jeff Novick, MS, RDN, Doug Lisle, PhD and others will present live lectures with the traditional materials they are famous for, and that are essential for your vital education, as well as brand new content and topics.
Daily Q&A sessions give you a unique opportunity to personally engage with John McDougall, MD, and his team of experienced professionals in an interactive and intimate setting.
1-on-1 Meetings with a Dedicated Support Specialist
Your dedicated Support Specialist will meet with you each day to discuss any questions you have during the program, challenges you’re facing and more. This is your time to discuss your progress and problems. After nearly 40 years of running residential programs with over 6,000 patients we have learned that the first few days are often the most difficult. You may need a little extra help. We’ll be there for you every step of the way.
The McDougall Program is designed for life-long changes. One of Dr. McDougall’s most rewarding professional moments is when a patient reconnects and says, “You may not remember me, but I started seeing you 40 years ago. My friends are no longer active, but my life is full of grandparenting, socializing and I’m still working. Thank you!” To ensure you meet your health goals, your dedicated Support Specialist is there to check-in with you weekly for three months after the course. After that, your ongoing support continues with monthly check-ins for the remainder of the year. We know that continued support after our program is key to your lifelong success.
A 12-Day Meal Plan
We’ve created a delicious menu for you to follow each day. Knowing the right foods to eat may be one of your biggest challenges. We’re here to help with that too. The menu can easily be modified to adapt to your tastes, preferences and number of people in your household. Our meal plans, cooking demonstrations and shopping tips will help make this practical and fun.
Pre-Recorded & Live Cooking Demonstrations
Follow along as our chefs show you step-by-step demonstrations of our favorite whole food, starch-based recipes!
For optimal learning we have kept our programs small, to just 40 participants. We want to give you the chance to ask all of your questions, including the ones that often come to mind while listening to others during a lecture.
Many of our past participants have found it helpful to connect with like-minded individuals who are also on the same path (and have stayed connected for years after). To add to this special community, we’ll include a few seasoned McDougallers to some of our sessions so they can share their experiences and best practices for continued success. We understand some of you may wish to simply watch and listen instead of participate in group discussions – no problem! Feel free to participate at your own comfort level.
Final Thoughts on Your Medical Care
Dr. McDougall has always tried to practice the highest quality of medicine and to integrate the McDougall Program into your own local physicians’ practices. Successful completion of our 12-day program will conclude with an official discharge letter from our doctor, addressed to you. The purpose of this professional document is to summarize your time with us and will include specific reasons why we have asked you to change your medications, as well as all other recommendations including our dietary guidelines.
*Additional charges apply.

Initial New Patient Consultation – $250
Do you have questions about whether your ailment can be helped, reversed or cured by a change in diet? The purpose of this 25-minute consultation is for you to get your general questions answered and find out if our 12-Days to Dynamic Health Online Course is right for you. We can only give you general information and not personal medical advice during this initial consultation because we legally cannot give medical advice to anyone unless they are a patient of ours. If you decide to move forward with the 12-Days to Dynamic Health Online Course, 100% of the consult fee will go towards the course enrollment. During the 12-Days with us, you will become a patient for life and your personal medical concerns will be addressed.
Follow-Up Alumni Consultation – $195
Receive one-on-one medical consultations with our Medical Director, Anthony Lim, MD, JD. During these 25-minute sessions you will have the opportunity to discuss your current health issues with Dr. Lim and receive personalized recommendations to reverse or heal these conditions.
As an alumni of our 12-day program, you’re considered a McDougall patient for life and we look forward to providing ongoing care and support.
