This world renown health seminar, backed by the Sanitarium Health Food Company, will run for 18 sessions, spread over six weeks.
The CHIP team of eight facilitators includes a graduate – Sr Pat Quinn, of an earlier CHIP program held three years ago at Toowoomba Central Seventh-day Adventist Church. Her remarkable story was featured recently in The Toowoomba Chronicle. She says that CHIP saved her life.
“I was in so much pain,” said Pat. “I had had a hip replacement and put on a lot of weight, and I have carried a lot of weight all my life.”
“I figured – I can try anything for a month – so I gave it a go. Now I’m in no pain and I feel like I’m 50 again!” said 70 year-old Pat.
But now CHIP is back – bigger and better. It has more Australian content, the latest research, a fantastic recipe book, and plenty of supporting material and programming.
35 men and women from many walks of life across the Toowoomba community have signed up for what will prove to be a challenging, enlightening, and life-changing experience, empowering participants with new confidence that they truly are in charge of their own health.
CHIP is purposely intensive through its first month (doesn’t it take 28 days to change a habit!) but typically very rewarding results show up after 30 days from one blood draw to the next.
“I’m really excited to be involved in a program like this”, said team leader Melinda Archer from Glenvale Seventh-day Adventist Church. “I’ve seen how it can make a huge difference for anyone who wants to feel better, look better and last better!”
