I cannot express how grateful I am, Dr. Klaper, for sharing your vast science-based, no b.s. knowledge. And especially for such a nominal fee. You sir, have changed my life permanently. Thank you.

Utterly fantastic talk by the good doctor. Get your pencil and paper out to write down info you like, pause and write and enjoy. Listened to it twice and still getting info from the good doctor.

I heard Dr Klaper in person deliver this lecture this past March 2014. It was not only filled with great info it help to clear up a lot of the myth of what and why we eat. Dr Kalper is so easy to listen to, and his good sense of humor makes it fun too! He also has a DVD called “Digestion Made Easy” and “Understanding your Blood Test Results” very handy to have if you ever have your blood drawn. GOOD STUFF, Thank you Dr Klaper for you knowledge and Compassion for all!!!!

Dr. Klaper is a really great speaker. All of his information was presented in a format that was incredibly easy to understand and really get into. I have only watched this once since I bought it but I really intend to sit down with a notebook and take some extensive notes.
