Services with Results
  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 keep rising.

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.

  • Reduce direct health care costs.

"This course surpassed my expectations in the caliber of the instruction, the content and the energy with which it was run. Jeannette, you are a gifted teacher... patient and wise."

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. Thanks, Jeannette!!

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...
