The Sobering Facts:
According to the Department of Health and Human Services and the World Health Organization, death and disability from
diseases and conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity have increased substantially over the last
decade. These chronic illnesses are among the most costly and prevalent health problems in this country, and the numbers
The real tragedy is that death and disability resulting from these chronic diseases, and sometimes the diseases
themselves, are largely preventable with simple lifestyle changes.
An ounce of prevention is|
worth a pound of cure:
According to the 2006 worldwide report Working Towards Wellness: Accelerating the Prevention of Chronic Disease*, companies
lose an average of 2% of their workforce capital due to indirect costs of chronic disease. For some businesses, this cost
amounts to more than the additional direct medical claim costs incurred.
In a recent 8 year study, Duke University
researchers found that that the heaviest workers had twice the number of workers' compensation claims as their thinner
co-workers**, indicating that overweight in particular can be a costly problem. In contrast, corporate
wellness programs have been demonstrated to provide a 3–to–1 return on their investment.

"This has been the most life changing experience I have ever had. Jeannette's sessions
have been filled with life's most enriching lessons. She is a born teacher with so much
delicious knowledge to share. Her soothing manner, humor, compassion and vast amounts of
information make for the most wonderful classes on earth. I have learned so much about
cooking, eating, exercising, and generally balancing my life without becoming overwhelmed.
My family is now becoming more healthy. Whole life nutrition has truly become my lifestyle.

Lisa Lacey — Holistic Counselor
"I loved the lecture and left feeling both relaxed and energized. The information you
offered was thoughtful and sound, but most of all useful! I immediately put to use some
of the techniques I learned, benefiting not only me, but others around me. The depth of
your knowledge in this area is, without a doubt, impressive and I appreciate the skill
and joy with which you presented yourself. Your soothing and caring manner helped me to
feel at ease and like I was a participant in a journey, rather than just sitting in a
class. Thank you!"

Comments from past participants of Whole Life Nutrition programs:
Classtime went by in the blink of an eye. It was chock full and brimming over with
the most basic, simple, soothing, cutting edge, essential, and truthful information.
So many times I thought, 'Wow, that's it, that's the reason — that's the truth!'
I can't say enough about the faculty! It is so obvious that Jeannette loves her work!
She was so energizing and enthusiastic. I loved her lectures... so informative and
helpful. She wasn't about chastising — she was about teaching. She was a very positive
force and the keystone of what has made this program a success.
I'm sooooo happy with the results of my cholesterol drop, with the enhanced sense of
vitality, and with having acquired the new tools and renewed motivation to encompass
the dynamic of long-term weight stability and ever-creative nutritional enrichment.
I really feel that the "balance eating" guidelines have been the key to curbing
my cravings and losing the weight.
My entire experience has been exceptional, life-changing...
