Program Course Descriptions

DHNN-101 Advanced Behavioral Science of Disease

This course focuses on the correction of disease through a process referred to as "Orthopathy." "Ortho" means "upright, correct." "Pathology" means the "study of disease" or "the study of suffering."

DHNN-103 Fasting: The Spiritual Art of Restoring & Preserving Health

This course demystifies the practice of fasting when ill and presents the amazing usefulness of the practice in restoring health. During a fast, the body rests and then uses recuperated energy to repair itself. Fasting is thus the quickest, safest, and most natural practice known to reverse and completely eliminate acute disease. Fasting is also highly effective in arresting, if not reversing virtually all chronic diseases, provided that cellular integrity and organic structure have not been irreversibly compromised. When cellular integrity and organic structures have been compromised, complete reversal and recovery may not be possible; but arrest of the disease process and higher levels of health can in most cases be achieved.
