Wellness Support Group 2014 - "Together Toward Health"

I, Dr. Young, have begun our Wellness Support Group which will continue through the entirety of 2014, called "Together Toward Health". Wellness goups have been proven to be markedly more effective than individuals trying to achieve wellness goals. Our group is and will be nothing less than ground-breaking and life-improving!

At this point (4/15/14) we have 10 members. During the year we invite new members up to a total of 20. Will you join us on this health-expanding adventure?

Here is the current (4/15/14) design of the group:


~ a maximum of 20 members
~ meet in Ventura one Thursday night every 2 weeks for 2 hours throughout 2014 - to see schedule, click here 
~ $500 per member for the entire year - less for those who join later
~ members pay for the year in advance
~ for those who want support in practicing health
~ for those who want to learn more about themselves and health
~ understood that changes in meeting nights may be required occasionally

Here is what Dr. David Perlmutter, internationally recognized neurologist, and author of the New York Times best seller, "Grain Brain" says about Dr. Young;Dr. Kristofer Young represents the leading edge of Functional Medicine healthcare practitioners. He continues to offer the most advanced and comprehensive programs that provide his patients an incredible advantage in terms of their health destiny.”

This African proverb is apropos of this support group; “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

Almost all people are in the same boat; inconsistent with exercise, with healthy eating, with taking vitamins, with meditating or praying, with getting enough sleep, with learning about improving health. Group education and support has been proven to result in better self-care!

Schedule it! Right? If we want to do something, the chances are much better when we schedule it. That is what we are doing!

It is not wise to keep trying alone, to do difficult things at which we have been unsuccessful. We will do this together; a supportive group of friends, and have fun!
