"This is the first time I’ve taken the class and David has debunked so many myths about nutrition that I’ve heard before and about what they’re doing to our food and all other nutritional needs that we have. It’s just been on my mind every single week. Myths have been dispelled, and I’ve been given such amazing information. Now I’ve just got to put it into practice. I would love to do the class again."

Frances (April 2016)
Attaining Optimal Health Student

"With the knowledge that I’ve gained by taking your class four times, I’ve no doubt, I’m going to live 20 years longer and feel a lot better the whole time. I’m already feeling a lot better with the knowledge that I’ve gained from the last three or four classes."

"I just have been so amazed every night I have come I can’t believe it’s over when it’s over and I’ve been here three hours. I have learned so much. I was so confused on what to do and how to eat and what to buy--what’s good and what’s not good. He’s just given me so much knowledge about what to buy, what to do, and even on supplements. I’m going to take the class over again because there’s so much more I probably need to know. It’s been great. You should come."
