Reverse Disease

Overweight man works to reverse disease and health issues

As of 2012, the CDC projects that approximately 70% of all deaths in the United States are due to preventable chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. The tide of chronic disease in modern America may seem daunting to control, but in reality the solution is quite simple. Reversing disease and achieving a true state of health begins with better nutrition, increasing physical activity, and avoiding toxins in our environment. Each and every one of us can exert serious power over his/her health by making excellent choices of food and activities.

We rarely think of our meal as immediately impacting our health, but in reality our food tends to either improve us or destroy us. It is a misconception (although convenient to entertain) that food can be neutral. In the biological world, the things we eat and activities we perform either build us up or tear us down. As I explain in great detail in the book Naturvore Power, unhealthy meals promptly lead to corrupted cells and a corrupted mind, then with time we suffer chronic disease, multi-organ failure and/or premature death. This is unnecessary and I am prepared to explain.  –Charles Harpe, MD

I get people to take their health more seriously because I tell them the truth!

Misinformation as to what is “truly healthy” abounds. We are generally misled, coaxed and coerced into consuming manufactured foods, then proceed to consume manufactured medications and medical care – all the while disease, organ failure and disability progress. I tell people to not over-think what to eat or their solutions for disease. Healthy living is natural and intuitive, so much so that even the animals do it. I keep things simple and practical.

Goals are important. They should be sensible and potent such as: “reduce your medications and thereby enjoy a pay raise.” How about: “look better, feel better, lose weight, stress less and improve brain function?” Goals such as these imply improved function in our daily lives, which are infinitely better than searching for more medical care or better lab numbers. People can achieve a better quality of life at any age by making some easy changes. My patients usually realize such drastic improvements in their condition so quickly that there is a potent self-rewarding, self-reinforcing experience. Start Now!

Wellness Testimonials

  • “After 34 years in law enforcement I retired – partly due to developing chronic back pain. I was literally in constant pain, with limited mobility.

    For over 7 years my family doctor tried all the traditional medical approaches, but he could not provide relief. I went to a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, and various physical therapists and none of these therapies provided relief either. Desperate, I underwent a series of spinal injections (at the cost of $8,000.00) by an orthopedist and they also failed.

    Then a physical therapist directed me to Dr. Charles Harpe. He reviewed all my medical records and created an innovative program of neuro-muscular manipulations and soft tissue injections that treated the root cause of the pain and inflammation – not just the symptoms. After two months I have diminished pain, greatly increased mobility and am now able get back in the gym three days a week. I highly recommend Dr Harpe because he was able to focus on the cause of my pain and then relieve my pain when other people couldn’t.”

  • I met Dr Harpe in June of 2014 when he became my new primary care doctor. At this point in my life my health was going into a real downward spiral. I could only walk short distances without being winded. I had back and joint pain so severe I had taken to walking with a cane. Also had arthritis, acid reflux, diverticulitis, heart arrhythmia, borderline high blood pressure, migraine headaches and an autoimmune disorder called Relapsing Polychondritis, which attacks cartilage and connective tissues. Also, I was extremely overweight for not just my height, but for just about any height!

  • In October 2013 I began seeing Dr. Harpe because my previous physician retired. At my first appointment,  Dr. Harpe  asked for the reason I was in his office,  I replied that my previous doctor required me to be checked every 6 months for various health problems—high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gout, cholesterol and some other problems I can’t even recall. At the time I was 68 years of age, 5’9” tall and almost 290 lbs.  Dr. Harpe said I needed to do something about the reason I was in such poor shape, so that I would not have to continue many of the 10 different medications I was taking. Dr. Harpe asked me to read his book, “ Naturvore Power” and come back to see him in one week.

  • In July 2013 I began as a patient with Dr. Charles Harpe and his treatment and patience have changed my life.  I began his recommended Naturvore way of eating about Sept. 1, 2013. I am 70 years old, diabetic, and have been 40 plus pounds over weight for at least the past 10 years.  I have had problems with my weight all my life.  I developed the diabetes about 1993.  Dr. Harpe and his lovely wife Claudia gave me so much time, detailed instruction, and support.  As I began the Naturvore way of eating, along with regular exercise, my blood sugar improved enormously and, as Dr. Harpe had promised, the pounds dropped off.  I have never been so astonished in my life.
