Take a Tour!

To get the most out of the website, join us for a short tour!

Welcome to a Fresh Start!  

We want to help you find a new, fresh, healthy lifestyle that can prevent, arrest, and even reverse many chronic lifestyle related diseases!

Our website is set up with a series of modules that you can view on your own, at your own pace, or use in conjunction while participating in one of our Fresh Start Live! programs.    

This entire site is frequently being updated with new material and is intended for my patients and anyone else to use as they see fit!  

  • You can use it personally.
  • You can use it with your family or with groups of people.

This site is also intended for my medical students and other medical professionals who are designing their own program.  Feel free to use it as it is, to use it as a starting point or reference to design your own program.

Here is how it works:

The web site has several tabs on the top address bar that will give you an overview of Fresh Start!
