Program Details

For everyone.

Our society is on the cusp of a seismic revolution in health—a revolution based not on pills or surgical procedures, but on lifestyle change and healthy nutrition choices.

T. Colin Campbell has been at the forefront of nutrition research for more than 40 years. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr. (Essy) has been researching the benefits of plant-based nutrition since the mid-1980s. Together, these two revolutionary experts will help you understand how changing what you eat can prevent and even reverse the effects of heart disease and diabetes, and eliminate hypertension and erectile dysfunction.

Through discussion, lecture, and Q&A sessions, you learn

  • The secrets to halting, reversing, or preventing heart disease, dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other diseases
  • Why lifestyle trumps genes
  • Which foods injure endothelium (the cells lining the interior of the blood vessels) and which enhance it
  • Why the scientific community shows resistance to this thinking.

Colin and Essy are joined by Ann Crile Esselstyn, who teaches how to start and maintain a plant-based diet. This weekend empowers you to go beyond medication and surgery to take your health into your own hands.

Recommended reading and viewing Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease: The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure (Avery Trade) and Forks Over Knives, a documentary film.
