      Kickstart Your Health and Prevent Disease

      Join Dr Mona Sigal for the possibly most important and life changing 5 weeks of your life: learn about a plant based whole foods diet and its power to reverse and prevent disease, the ability to control your weight naturally and effortlessly.

      Dr Sigal is a Board certified emergency physician who has switched careers and is practicing nutrition and lifestyle medicine. Sixteen years of emergency medicine practice have taught her, that almost ALL chronic diseases encountered are caused and/or augmented by diet and lifestyle. Many of these diseases are 100% reversible with a plant based diet. And ALL of these ailments can be vastly improved and even halted with a diet completely free of animal foods. 

      Come and learn why; the science is unequivocal. Overweight and obesity are the start to almost ALL chronic disease including many cancers. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, many autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis and many more can be completely reversed or halted. Diabetes type 2, a disease entirely caused by diet, can be reversed, and some of its complications greatly ameliorated. 

      Irritable bowel, Crohn's Disease, constipation and many more are dramatically improved on a plant based diet.

      Clinical studies have shown that Parkinson's Disease and even Alzheimer's Dementia improve when animal foods are being removed from the menu.

      Many cancers can be prevented, and cancer survivors can dramatically improve their odds of survival and disease free life by adopting a plant based diet.

      No, this is not a miraculous "cure-for-all": this is the result of decades of intense scientific study of how diet and disease are correlated.
