At a time when medical care has been misnamed as healthcare, we should appreciate Dr. Breslow's discovery (UCLA) that 7 Simple Health Habits make a 30-year difference in those who observe or break all seven.
Hi--I'm Dr. Richard Ruhling, board-certified in Internal Medicine and a Cardiology Fellowship before teaching Health Science at Loma Linda University. While teaching mid-70's, Pritikin reported reversing heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes by diet. Nutrition is the first of 7 health habits represented by the acronym, NEW START, and the PowerPoint program I offer is "the best in the wellness area" (Blue Cross testimonial). NEW START can reverse most disease, I'll send a link

What to Expect
As an expert, not just in medicine, but healthcare that can reverse the disease processes that have become chronic, I can give a focus on lifestyle summarized by NEW START. This acronym fits Dr. Lester Breslow's 7 Simple Health Habits that offer a 30-year advantage between those who observe or who break all 7 "Golden Rules of Health." A picture is worth 1000 words and I can send one that summarizes.
The president of the Mended Hearts Club (after bypass surgery) told his group that he spend $12,000 at the Longevity Center in California, but if you attend the Total Health Seminar by Dr. Ruhling, you get about the same for a fraction of the cost. My PowerPoint Seminar is packed with information and I can fit most time-frames, 60-90 minutes being optimal with a screen, but can do 30-minutes after luncheon without a screen.
Richard Ruhling, MD, MPH finished Internal Medicine at University of Arizona, Tucson and a Cardiology Fellowship at Good Samaritan Hospital, Phoenix, before teaching Health Science at Loma Linda University where he was responsible for Executive Health.
While teaching, he attended a cardiology convention where Nathan Pritikin reported reversing high blood pressure--85% got off their drugs on his diet and exercise program. Similar numbers were reported for diabetics and heart disease. Ruhling had confirmation when an executive was called a "walking time-bomb" by his cardiologist, but Ruhling told him about the diet and five months later, his treadmill stress test had normalized.
A nurse taking 80 units of insulin a day reduced her dosage to 18 units with diet and exercise. Additional information is offered on a 1-sheet sent on inquiry.
Additional Booking Notes
Depends on venue--screen with PowerPoint is optimal but can speak without it and allow Q&A.
Back of the room sales is a plus because half of what people learn is gone an hour later.
Influences & Inspiration
Highly qualified medical training
Teaching Health Science at Loma Linda University, under Dean, Dr. Mervyn Hardinge in a progressive program granting Dr. of Health Science degrees in a 3-year program where graduates do not write prescriptions for drugs, but prescribe lifestyle changes--how to stop smoking, the better weight, coping with stress, nutritional cooking classes, etc.
If this is not a dinner somewhere without a screen, that is helpful along with a video projector or I can bring mine to use with my laptop.
