Healthy Living

with Dr Peter Hill

A 6-week Zoom course that can change the course of your life

Learn how to combat lifestyle-related chronic diseases such as being overweight or obese, being at risk for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, most cancers, Alzheimer’s and more.

5 Pillars to Healthy Living

Most available lifestyle-related interventions are focused only on either diet, or exercise or medication use, with little or no attention given to empowering the ‘whole-person’ to be able to care for themselves and their families. This 6 week Healthy Living programme is focused in helping you to improve your capacity for self-care across all five domains of what it means to be human: Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, Relational and Spiritual.

Emotions

It’s largely accepted that what we think about plays a role in some psychological disorders. But can we think ourselves into a physical disease state? It certainly appears so, if we accept that our body’s response to stress includes the production of chemicals that can make us sick.

Reversing Type 2 Diabetes

Injecting insulin, for people with Type 2 diabetes, may thus compound the underlying insulin resistance and worsen the very condition the insulin is supposed to treat – truly a vicious circle.

“…Several scientists working in this area of healthcare suggest that it makes good sense to first prevent the condition . But what we find is that most of us rely on medicines, which often only address the symptoms and not the cause of these chronic diseases…”

Testimonials

Real life stories of how lives were changed by Caleb Centre's 6 week healthy living course
man, black, victory
For the first time after 13 years I am wearing L size, I can find clothes in shops, and have lost almost 24 kg in less than a year. I know I'm never going to get it back because its a change in my behaviour. ...Like I said most people write about success stories of their weight loss. And that’s it. It’s called a success story because it is already over. It’s like a trophy that they’ve earned after working so hard. While I really admire them for that, I also want to write about a life changing healthy style by not doing it alone. But by doing it with like-minded people who would be going through this journey with me for a life time.
The effect of the applied self-care lessons was visible and felt within weeks. Energy was back and we were emotionally feeling well in our bodies and mind. I was reminded of the following Proverb: A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. The benefit of being followed up by a personal mentor on a regular basis, stirring up our spirit to move forward and achieving short term goals is matchless and Amazing. What was unbelievable was that I was losing weight without doing exercise as my physical condition did not allow me to do so but I was eating joyfully and enjoying my meals which was not the case with previous diets that we've tried before.
Most of my adult life was spent in an overweight situation +/- 118kg at the age of 34. Now at the age of 74 I weigh 78kg. Net loss of 40kg's. I battled for a long time with being Insulin Resistant. I was ready to give up when after being on Dr Peter Hill's programme, I started losing 1.5 kg of weight every month. My latest blood tests show a very low PSA & also all my other Blood tests are very good. I do this yearly & strongly recommend this to be done by all. If you are battling with Diabetes or Obesity contact Dr Peter Hill, he can help you.
