OPTIMUM HEALTH CHICAGO supports and assists individuals
and groups in obtaining their goal of optimum health. We do this through
workshops, retreats, corporate and group presentations, lectures, medical
school and hospital presentations, and some individual consultations.
Our Main Workshops
Our main workshops are entitled, "In Search
of Optimum Health," "Eight Weeks to Optimum Health" and
These are interactive workshops, covering all ten aspects
of optimum health. We usually
cook together, have lecture presentations, discussions, group interactions, exercise, and mental
and spiritual exercises.
These workshops are for those seeking natural health
and spontaneous healing. They are designed to enhance what you intuitively
know: how to be fit and healthy in a natural way, and how to easily
incorporate healthy principles into your busy life. The course is for
all seekers of optimum health: people who simply want to improve, cancer
and heart attack survivors, people at risk (diabetes, high cholesterol),
and those desiring stress reduction or weight control. Upcoming
