Wellness 101 by The Wellness Forum now on DVD!

When I took Wellness 101 from The Wellness Forum back in 2006, the class was on audio tapes.  I had to go out and buy a cassette recorder!   It was well worth it because I'm more of an auditory learner, so listening to the tapes over and over again helped the information to stick in my head and make big changes quickly.

Now you can watch an entire Wellness 101 class taught by Pam Popper, ND, in the comfort of your home. It's now on DVD!  While it's not studio quality (it's a recorded live class), Dr. Popper's enthusiasm and passion for plant based nutrition (leaning toward veganism) makes this video fun to watch. It comes with a study guide that includes a Wellness Assessment and changes to implement at the end of each section.

Here's what's on the DVD:
1. Introduction/Welcome
2. John McDougall, M.D. (How he became interested in Vegan Plant Based Nutrition and the success he has had with his patients)
3. Structuring Your Diet (How to plan meals)
4. The China Study (A summary of the one of the largest studies on human nutrition ever conducted)
5. Nutrition Basics
6. Dietary Myths
7. Animal Food Consumption (Why it should be severely limited or eliminated)
8. Meatless Meals (Actual Cooking Demos)
9. More Super Foods
10. Eating Habits
11. Action Plan
