The PEP Session Series listed below by numbers are complete PEP Sessions on a particular health and nutrition topic. To get you started, we have created two "basic" series - one is basic dietary and nutrition education, titled, "General Nutrition Education," and the other is basic sports nutrition education, titled, "Sports Nutrition Education." In these two basic series, we have selected the key sessions within a complete Series that can speed up your knowledge, skill and ability to make faster recoveries from illness or injury, enhance health and sports performance, and lifestyle modification.
OVERVIEW OF PEP SESSION SERIES:
General Nutrition Education Series includes:
Sports Nutrition Education Series includes:
Mind/Body Connection (Sessions 1-10) focus on how your mind and body work together in support of your health or destructively to bring about illness and death. You will be coached in the roles your thoughts, emotions and beliefs play with respect to your health. Do your mental/emotional patterns currently support your health or interfering with it? Learn the specific action steps that leaders in the field of mind-body healthcare today are using to improve their clients' health.
Acid/Alkaline pH Balancing (Sessions 11-12) are the initial preparation towards building the skills to perform a home nutritional physical examination, for example, how to balance your urine and saliva pH. Maintaining a balanced pH assists your body's innate healing process and regularly monitoring is a key to maintaining optimum health. Home Test kits are available for doing nutritional exams in your home.
Detoxification Series (Sessions 13-14) provide vital information prior to completing P.E.P. Sessions 15 to 27. These two sessions provide insights into the consequences of neglecting or being unaware of applying daily the principles which govern the healthy function of our body and mind. Session 13 provides coaching in the function of your digestive system and the body's natural detoxification system. Session 14 coaches you in the connection of disease and toxicity. This reinforces the importance of an effective biological detoxification system and the elimination or reduction of toxic exposures from food and environmental factors. Clients with high scores on the Dysbiosis Questionnaire and Elimination Assessment Questionnaires are an example of the types of clients who can benefit from PEP Sessions 13-14.
Diet and Health Connection Series (Sessions 15-27) provide both dietary and nutritional health education principles. Beginning with a 6-part series titled, The Diet-Health Connection, through nutritional education videos, PEP Session materials and/or the Functional Dietetics textbook you will be coached in specific body building nutrients: the macro-nutrients (proteins, fats/oils, carbohydrates) and the micro-nutrients (vitamins, minerals, water). Some key topics you will be coached in are: the myths around Cholesterol, its health benefits and how to maintain healthy cholesterol; food combining -- when it is important and when it is not; identify and managing food allergies and hyper-sensitivities; identifying food families and how to diversify and rotate your foods to minimize exposures to pesticides/herbicides and maximize nutrient intake. You will be coached in the principles of a Sound Diet, learn menu planning and how to read food and beverage labels.
Creating a Healthy, Vibrant and Lean Body Series (Sessions 28-37). This 10- part series provides the most effective tools for weight management. You will learn how to create a lean high-energy body, remove mental and emotional blocks to obtaining and maintaining your ideal weight, be coached in the weight regulating mechanism, reprogramming your set point, and understanding motion and physical exercise. You will discover 10 biological factors which affect your ability to lose and/or maintain your ideal weight. You will be coached in body movement, breathing, relaxation, proper rest, safe stretching, the key distinctions on health and physical fitness, and strength training benefits and myths. Acupressure points, which assist the body in releasing blocked fluids and foods, will be demonstrated so that you may eliminate excess waste naturally without the use of laxatives and diuretics, ruling out chronic or clinical conditions. Body Composition Analysis will be provided to measure fat, lean muscle, water and cell mass. Measurements and other anthropometric will be taken to monitor your successful progress.
Environmental Series (Sessions 42-46). Learn how to identify and minimize the sources of toxins you are being exposed to daily. Learn about non-toxic, healthy alternatives in home and office cleaning supplies, appliances, linen, decor, furnishings, personal hygiene and skin care. Learn how to promote health in domestic and farm animals. Much of what is feed to pets today is promoting animal illnesses. Learn healthier alternatives.
Creating Lifestyle Changes that Last Series (Sessions 49-54). A principle-centered lifestyle is a key to healthy living. One significant principle to give attention to is "if you keep doing what you are doing, you will keep getting what you are getting." In other words, if health, love, peace, prosperity describes the qualities and experiences of your life, then keep doing what you are doing. However, if you pause a moment and reflect on your current experience of life and it contains illness, pain, unhappiness, frustration, depression, lack, financial insecurity or any other unresourceful physical, mental or emotional state, you will continue to produce these states and conditions in your life unless you discover and apply the steps which lead to healthy, successful states of being. This principle is further demonstrated by comments like, "The faces and places have changed, but the context or outcomes are the same." This is an important series for anyone who finds him/herself "stuck" in repeated cycles or "blocked" and unable to successfully breakthrough and succeed at desired health or life goals.
Loving Relationships Series (Sessions 55-62). These PEP sessions coach you in improving or creating loving relationships with family, friends and co-workers. Be coached in the role left and right brain dominance plays in determining behavior. Did you know that each person is unique in their interpretation of love--the way you express your love for another, may not be the way the other person can receive it, and vice versa. You will be coached in how to assess the other person's love language and criteria. You will be coached in interpreting body language so uniquely that the other person may think you can read their mind. The skills presented in this series are currently being taught internationally by health professionals to promote effective communication and loving relationships.
Athletic and Sports Nutrition Series (Sessions 101-108). These PEP Sessions will assist you in accurately calculating your daily grams of protein, carbs, and fats/oils. They will coach you on exactly what macro- and micro-nutrients will enhance your sports performance and skills. Pre/Post Sports Events protocols and carbo loading, losing weight without losing muscle are among the topics in this series.
