    Testimonials for Rick and Karin Dina

    You guys are awesome! This was much better than I expected! I've been looking for something like this - all the science to back up the philosophy! You did a great job of taking complex subjects and making them simple to understand. Very precise and specific information. Thanks thanks thanks! You guys rock!

    Stellar! Excellent info. and user-friendly method of dispersing it. At times entertaining, also very motivating. These two doctors are a fabulous duo, non-judgmental, very illuminating info, -clear-, concise. Very much appreciated their willingness to answer questions. I am just grateful they are sharing this valuable info! Thank you both! You two are marvelous!

    You exceeded my expectations. Your presentation was skillful, well organized, clear and facilitated learning, and while it was rooted in the fundamentals of physiology along with the current research, it was clinically focused and useful. You conveyed all of this to us with great care, care that we understand and learn, and care that we can effectively use the information to help many others, as well as ourselves. Thanks Drs. Rick and Karin. This was an exceptional course.
