With over 40 years of clinical experience in acute care as well as preventive and nutritionally based medicine, Dr. Klaper guides retreat participants from an extensive knowledge base. A graduate of University of Illinois College of Medicine, Dr. Klaper he served his medical internship at Vancouver General Hospital in British Columbia, Canada, and received additional training in surgery, anesthesiology, and orthopedics at the University of California Hospital in San Francisco. Over the course of his distinguished career, Dr. Klaper began to realize that many of the diseases his patients brought to his office - high blood pressure, obesity, asthma, adult onset diabetes, and so on - were caused and/or worsened by the high-fat, high sugar, overly processed Standard American Diet (S.A.D.). Dr. Klaper believes strongly that proper nutrition and a balanced lifestyle are essential for health and that, in many cases, nutrition makes the difference between healing an illness or merely treating the symptoms.
Dr. Klaper has authored successful books and videos on cholesterol-free nutrition, and has contributed to the making of two PBS television programs, "Food For Thought", and the award-winning, "Diet for a New America." He has also produced a DVD, "Fasting: Safe & Effective Use of an Ancient Therapy" in which he describes the benefits and proper procedures of fasting and answers related questions. http://doctorklaper.com/videos/
Dr. Klaper brings with him a talented group of health, wellness, and vitality experts who will lead transformational classes and demonstrations that participants can carry with them for the rest of their lives. Yoga Professional Alese Jones invites you onto your own path of knowing your true self, with time-honored teachings of yoga and meditation. She has studied with many well-regarded yoga and spiritual teachers, including Connie Beaudoin and Sarah Powers, from whom she received her Yin/Mindfulness training, and non-duality teacher, Rupert Spira.
Chef and New York Times Best Selling Author Chad Sarno will be sharing his secrets for making healthy food taste fabulous in three food preparation classes that will make you want to eat healthy long after your restorative week on Maui. His experience included the launch of an international boutique restaurant chain from Istanbul to London. Chad also developed the course curriculum and the health and wellness initiatives for Whole Foods Market's global healthy eating program, and he now serves as V.P. of Plant Based Education at Rouxbe online culinary school. In 2012, Chad teamed up with bestselling author Kris Carr to write the New York Times Best Seller, "Crazy Sexy Kitchen". Chad will present his acclaimed food preparation classes to the Retreat participants, while the Lumeria culinary staff will provide fresh juices and delicious, light, plant-based meals created using locally grown and sourced organic foods from the property’s own gardens and surrounding farms.
