    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Pritikin Center

    The Pritikin Longevity Spa has been in operation since 1977, and has published over 100 articles in medical and nutritional journals. It has treated over 70,000 people, and is run by board certified physicians. Also check ( .com and .org both are valuable. ) I followed the Pritikin program for 30 years (2 years strictly) before modifying to the Fuhrman program.

    The success of Pritikin, McDougall, Ornish, Esselstyn (basically identical) and Fuhrman, all support the success of all of these programs. In my opinion, Dr. Fuhrman has improved upon these already excellent programs.
