About Dr. Young's Health & Wellness Groups & Classes
"It is such a tremendous help, at least in my life!"
"Dr. Kris! I would like you to know that you've really increased my awareness in holistic health, and provided tools to really be more involved in my healthcare (or "health plan" as you call it!). These lessons are not something I could've found on my own, so many thanks to the valuable/invaluable information you are teaching us. Once we are done, the next group will be blown away at your knowledge!"
"As I commented before, you have really opened my eyes to the power of nutrition, and to be a better advocate when meeting with my doctor/s. I know that I am in a better place than when we first met on August 2nd."
"I so enjoyed your classes and am so sad that I could not continue to attend the remainder of the program. I learned a lot about health and vitamins and alternative ways to view medicine and taking care of ourselves. As you know, I was a bit skeptical when we first embarked on the journey for City staff. I was sure that there was not such thing as a free lunch and could not imagine how this program would work. From the first time we met at the Indian restaurant in downtown Ventura (with Ellis Green and Asst. Police Chief Quinn Fenwick (now retired), I began to understand your passion for health, wellness and the functional medicine approach and why you were willing to volunteer to bring this knowledge and education to City staff. I know you have made a positive impact on the employees who have participated in the program and the organization as a whole is so much better off for your generous efforts. - Jenny Roney, MPA, SPHR, IPMA-CP -- HR Director, City of Ventura - Aug 2004-Sept 2013"
"I so hate to miss my class. I truly appreciate you giving up your time and knowledge to help us. ^:)^ Thank you so much for all that you have given us. I feel I actually have a chance now to get my life on track."
"I would like to thank you for once again providing us with a wealth of great information."
"As you were reading from Dr. Hyman's work, I couldn't help but think about how the "why" rather than the "what" approach is beneficial when applied to most (if not all) areas of life. It's more difficult perhaps, and it definitely takes more time and thought, but the results are well worth the effort."
"I was reminded today that the same is true when dealing with our physical health. "Do we need to deal with the symptoms (the what)?" In most cases, yes. "Will that solve the real problem (the why)?" Definitely not. Thanks again for reminding me of this truth. Now I just need to transition that knowledge from my head to my heart so the life style changes I make will last longer than a week :)."
"Validating and enlightening!"
"Looking forward to increased clarity and wellness."
"I'm sad that my time in your group is over. I learned a ton and plan on learning more."
