In this convincing 1-hour presentation, Dr. Michael Klaper, M.D. explores and explains the relationship between diet and health. From the benefits of plant-based foods to the deleterious effects of meat and dairy-laden diets and their relation to disease, Klapera€™s down-to-earth approach makes the subject very accessible and interesting.
Michael Klaper, M.D. is the Director of the Institute for Nutrition Education and Research, a nonprofit organization that provides seminars for physicians and other health professionals on utilizing nutrition in therapy and prevention of disease. Klaper gives public lectures throughout North America, frequently appearing on radio and television. He is also a consultant to numerous corporations and their Wellness programs.
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 (S.A.D.).
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 - without dieting or calorie restriction.) 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.
Dr. Klaper believes strongly that proper nutrition and a balanced lifestyle are essential for health, and in many cases make the difference between healing an illness or merely treating the symptoms.
A gifted teacher, humorous lecturer, and the author of successful books and video's on cholesterol-free nutrition. Dr. Klaper has contributed to the making of two PBS television productions, "Food for Thought," and the award winning, "Diet for a New America."
