The LifeSpa Mission | John Douillard’s LifeSpa


I started my venture on returning to eating food from Mother Nature to regain my health and had some great success but seemed to be at a few slow spots or even dead ends.  I heard an interview by Dr. Mercola of John Douillard and his book Eat Wheat.  I read and re-read the book several times and started to use several of the suggestion especially his Kitchari Recipe.

What’s So Amazing About Kitchari?

Kitchair is a simple, porridge – a blend of beans and rice.  It is often referred to as India’s Comfort food or health food.  Note: India’s comfort food isn’t anything like what our Western’s idea.  Our Idea of comfort food is A bagel covered in cream cheese, Macaroni and Cheese, chocolate marshmallows or a huge pile of French Fries or mashed creamy potatoes.  Right!

Kitchair ingredients can easily be cooked ahead and frozen into small portions for a quick fix lunch or dinner.

Contrary to the Western’s concept, Kitchair health food has many nourishing and cleansing benefits and has used its magic with profound benefits for generations.

This recipe lived up to what it promised and helped me return to digesting food rather just burning sugar for energy.

I began another detox program this year 2018 using more of his suggestion including Douillard’s alternate to laxatives.  I have had great success and highly recommend others to his insightful and unique approach to returning your health.

Bruce Fife, C.N., N.D.,

A certified nutritionist and naturopathic doctor, has researched and written 18 health and nutrition books.  He was the first to gather together the medical research on the health benefits of coconut oil and present it in a understandable and readable format.  He is recognized as one of the leading authorities on the subject.

Many years ago Bruce Fife attended a meeting of nutritionist when he heard someone say “Coconut Oil is Good For You”.  Members in the meeting all gasped in disbelief.  “Preposterous everyone knows coconut oil is the source of artery clogging saturated fat”.  He became intrigued and troubled.  He began his research and the more he found out about the evil coconut oil the more he liked.  He started to use the oil himself then he recommended it to his clients.  He has a long list of success stories.  He says “I have been so impressed with potential health benefits available from the use of coconut oil that I felt an obligation to share what I have learned with the rest of the world.”

He does not sell coconut oil nor have any financial interest in the coconut industry.  A porton of the proceeds from book sales goes to Save the Children Campaign.

He has established the Coconut research center
This is an excellent tool you can use to tell your family and friends about the many benefits of coconut oil and other coconut products. Please visit the Coconut Research Center at

Success stories concerning coconut oil, range from curing dry skin, stopping and improving Autism and Alzheimers, and healing HIV AIDS. Fife’s book is a must for any health concerned citizen and all health care professionals and family members of those stricken with a serious disease.
