Natural Healing For Chronic Disease
Our Holistic Treatment Approach
We are fatter, sicker, and are dying younger despite more dollars spent on medicine then ever before. Our current lifestyle, including the so called SAD (Standard American Diet), is slowly killing us.
You CAN say goodbye to diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, obesity, high cholesterol and other diseases. Your body has a tremendous ability to heal itself-only if you remove the CAUSE of your disease and begin to care for it properly. Returning to our natural vegan, whole, minimally processed or raw food diet and understanding how to cooperate with our bodies natural healing abilities is key to achieving better health.
We help you change the trajectory of your life by helping you build a new lifestyle.
Dr. Opare's Rulebook and User Guide For Healthy Living approach to health is an African Natural Hygiene approach. It is based on the recognition that there are certain rules for caring for ourselves that must be followed to achieve good health. While eating right is one of the biggest factors, others include drinking enough water, getting enough rest, exercising, along with twelve other rules he has seen clinically to be keys to health.
Dr. Opare combines nutritional medicine with acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Osteopathic manual medicine, and physician supervised juice fasting to assist your body's natural healing process.
Through our online and in person programs we provide the education and coaching you need to be successful in making a lifelong lifestyle change.
Schedule your phone or video consultation with Dr. Opare to get clear on the cause of your health problems, discover how to remove the cause and learn how Dr. Opare and his team can provide the support you need to be successful at properly caring for yourself (follow your rule book and user guide) thereby allowing healing to occur.
Nutritional medicine is the treatment of illness by the restoration of proper patterns of diet thereby restoring the bodies natural balance. What we eat has a profound impact on our health. Improper diet is known to lead to diabetes, heart disease and most other chronic illnesses. These are in reality "food bourn illnesses". Kemetic (ancient Afrikan name of Egypt) wisdom states “Let food be thy medicine, let medicine be thy food.”
Dr. Opare prescribes a plant-based, whole food diet, vegan and raw/living food lifestyle. This is a key factor for reversing or preventing disease.
Our educational programs, the Optimum Fast Physician Supervised Juice Fast and our Food For The Soul website are designed to guide your transition to a healthy lifestyle, learn how to make delicious vegan food and to support your healing process.
Supervised Juice Fast
A Supervised Fast combines the power of the Optimum Fast with Dr. Opare's close supervision of your progress. It is recommended for those with chronic disease and those on any type of medication or anyone who desires extra support and guidance.
During your Optimum Fast your body will very quickly heal itself. If you have chronic disease and are on medication your needs for medication will change rapidly. Dr. Opare will:
⇒ Assess your current condition and design a fasting regimen that fits your situation;
⇒ Design a schedule for tapering off your medication;
⇒ Monitor you closely throughout your fast;
⇒ Keep you motivated and consistent with your fast until your body is ready to resume eating;
⇒ Answer your questions and concerns.
The Optimum Fast
Juice Fasting is a powerful healing tool. During the fast the body is able to release and eliminate accumulated toxins from our diets, our addictions, and our environments. Once these toxins are removed, the body is able to work to return to it's natural healthy state. When combined with self observation and reflection, journaling, prayer/meditation, education and a commitment to making changes, the fasting process provides an opportunity for making profound changes in your emotional, spiritual and physical health.
Dr. Opare, co-author of The Optimum Fast has 20 plus years expertise supervising juice fasts. While fasting, patients with serious medical conditions such as diabetes require careful monitoring as blood chemistries and medication requirements change rapidly. Medications are suspended or markedly adjusted by Dr. Opare during your fast. Often following the fast medications are no longer needed or are markedly reduced.

The body has a flow of energy (Qi) running through it. On the surface it has been found to flow specifically in channels called meridians. When this flow is disrupted or unbalanced, illness, pain and inflammation can result. Acupuncture uses very thin needles inserted into specific points on the meridians to restore the balance.
Acupuncture is well known for its ability to stop pain, reduce inflammation and speed recovery. It also promotes proper blood flow and stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms among its many actions. Acupuncture reduces stress and aids relaxation.
Acupuncture has been practiced for more than 5000 years. Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine have enjoyed a surge in popularity over the past quarter century with licensure in over two thirds of the States.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese Herbs work alone or in collaboration with acupuncture to support the rebalancing of the Qi energy in the body. Chinese herbal medicine is also highly effective in healing illnesses and the reducing of swelling and bruising without the infamous side effects of non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
