Wellness Forum Health Weight Loss Program
Program Description – WFH Weight Loss is a one-year program designed to help you to permanently change your habits. This is not a typical weight loss program. While the goal is weight loss, this course focuses on two things – health education and literacy (examining the science related to choices regarding diet, health, and medical care) and habit change (which is the only way that permanent weight loss can occur).
Components of the program include: InforMED™ Health 101 and 201, one-on-one appointments, education about psychological issues underlying thinking and behavior, training on how to accomplish habit change, principles of weight loss, twice-monthly teleconference workshops, periodic review of journals, and accountability sessions.
This program is not for everyone, and an application and interview are required to determine suitability for participation. We do not want you to enroll in this program unless we feel that you are highly likely to succeed. Qualifications include willingness to commit to complete specific courses and tasks by deadlines, follow directions provided by WFH staff, make big changes to diet and exercise patterns, participate in conference calls and one-on-one meetings, and be accountable for your actions and progress.
Tuition: $799 for one year.
Most people who try to lose weight and keep it off fail. If you are like most overweight people you already know this; you’ve failed a few times yourself. The longer you have been overweight, the more the odds are against your succeeding. The only thing that will make this experience different than the last is your willingness to do whatever it takes for a long period of time, and to do things differently than you have in the past.
In our experience, the biggest reasons people fail at weight loss or anything else requiring behavior change is their own resistance to doing things differently for extended periods of time, failure to stay engaged in some type of support program, and unwillingness to hold themselves accountable for progress. You should think long and hard before you decide to apply – and make sure you are ready to commit to yourself to a healthier future for the rest of your life.
Concierge Program For Cancer Patients
The decisions made by cancer patients are some of the most important they will ever make.
Survival can depend on choosing the right diagnostic tests, the right treatment protocols, and the right healthcare providers. Conventional treatments are often not as effective as represented, and getting accurate information from doctors can be challenging. Evaluating the seemingly unlimited array of alternative treatments can be just as daunting. Add to this some justifiable fear, along with pressure from well-meaning family and friends, and it’s no wonder cancer patients feel overwhelmed.
We can help! Outcomes are better when decisions are well thought-out and based on data!
Our specialty – informed medical decision-making – involves evaluating the risks and benefits of diets, supplements, tests, drugs, and procedures. Once decisions are made, we assist with logistics which include dietary change, negotiating with doctors and institutions, communication with family members, and emotional support.
Our concierge program for cancer patients includes:
- Foundational courses (InforMED 101 and InforMED 201)
- Access to an online articles library (new ones added weekly!)
- Access to an online video library (over 200 videos)
- Monthly Q&A sessions with Pam Popper
- Monthly live classes on health-related topics and books
- One-on-one sessions with our Informed specialists
- One-on-one sessions with our dietitians
- Online course that covers history of cancer and cancer treatment, causes of cancer, characteristics of cancer, screening, diagnosis and treatment basics.
- Online in-depth exploration of alternative treatments and treatment centers including IV vitamin C therapy, dietary supplements, Rife Machines, Hoxey, green tea, medicinal mushrooms, hyperthermia, immunotherapy, energy healing and more!
Monthly Support Conference Calls
These calls offer an opportunity for discussion, information sharing, and community for patients as they go through the process of regaining their health.
