‘Superhero’ is the real Diehl
The founder of CHIP (the Complete Health Improvement Program) Dr Hans Diehl is visiting Palmerston North next week.
A clinical professor of Preventive Medicine at Loma Linda University School of Medicine in California, Dr Diehl’s message to Manawatu is that people don’t have to die of so-called Western ‘lifestyle’ diseases.
These diseases are connected to a combination of factors that include modern processed diets coupled with lack of exercise; smoking, overuse of alcohol and caffeine, and increased levels of stress.
Chosen by a major health magazine as ‘‘one of America’s 20 super-heroes in the health movement’’, The Vegetarian Times has lauded Dr Diehl among these scientists, who ‘‘through research, education, advocacy and public relations, have brought intelligent, well-reasoned new voices into the discussion of health care’’.
Dr Diehl evaluated the impact of the Pritikin Longevity Center, directing its research and health education departments.
His books, among them Health Power and Dynamic Living (co-authored with Dr. Aileen Ludington), have sold over two million copies and have been translated into 21 languages.
Dr Diehl set up CHIP in 1988 to address the causes of chronic diseases such as type-II diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases and obesity.
It is now in 350 cities across North America, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.

long lasting lifestyle changes.
As well as reversing these ‘lifestyle’ diseases, patients on medication often become drug-free within weeks by simplifying their customary diet.
Overweight people learn how to eat more and better food, while losing weight on a permanent basis.
Known as a stimulating and inspiring speaker, Marecia says Dr Diehl’s free talk is entitled Fork & Knife: Weapons of Mass Destruction or Instruments of Health and Healing?
