Are you worried about exposure to the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, and the disease it causes, COVID-19?

Maybe you are in good health, but you are worried about your parents or grandparents contracting the disease. Or you are probably worried about your significant other who has one of the risk factors for worse COVID-19 outcomes: overweight/obese, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, asthma, lung disease, kidney disease, etc...

That's understandable and that is why I have created this course. In this course, I put together my decades of teaching and working in the health and nutrition field to present you with the knowledge that is so urgent to have during these uncertain times.

In this course, you will learn what really strengthens your immune system, and no it's not kale! A lot of "common knowledge" about what is healthy for us does not hold up under scrutiny.

There is so much misinformation about what a healthy diet constitutes that it can be very frustrating for the average person who just wants to improve their health without getting a Ph.D. in the process.

For that reason, I simplify what foods are essential for improving our immune system function and which foods can wreak havoc on our physical health.

I also provide you with concise straight-to-the-point explanations for my recommendations.

If you are ready to take back control of your and your loved ones' health, then I will see you on the inside!

In Health,

Dr. Z
