What Every Health Professional Needs to Know

As part of the Moving Medicine Forward Initiative, the Master Class in Plant-based Clinical Nutrition is a twice-monthly educational program that places the healing power of plant-based nutrition into the hands of every physician, medical student, and health professional who wants to help their patients heal on the deepest levels.

Through bi-weekly webinars — led by clinician Michael Klaper, M.D. who brings almost 40 years of plant-based experience healing to his entertaining, slide-illustrated lectures — the principles of how to use the patient’s diet to transform their body’s chemistry and physiology to arrest and reverse degenerative disease are revealed.

From clogged arteries, obesity and diabetes, to colitis, arthritis and osteoporosis, the science behind why the foods of the Standard American Diet can foster such diseases is presented and, more importantly, practical strategies on how to use a whole-food, plant-based diet to restore vital function are shared.

Before each Master Class, clinical cases will be shared with enrollees along with thought-provoking questions that invite the participants to analyze and understand nutrition’s role in fostering both health and disease.

If you want to acquire this valuable skill set — and the clinical confidence that comes with it — click here to enroll in the Master Class in Plant-based Clinical Nutrition.

What I Wished I Learned About Nutrition In Medical School


As the focus of our "Moving Medicine Forward" Initiative, I’ve been traveling to medical schools across North America, Europe and Australia giving the students the presentation I wish someone had given me fifty years ago, about how the patient’s diet is key to reversing many of the most feared degenerative diseases known to medicine. Here is the lecture I’ve been giving to the students - complete with slides for you to copy.


Feel free to share this with your doctor or any student of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, chiropractic, nursing, naturopathy or any other of the other health sciences. It’s time for a nutritional awakening across the healing professions!
