August Events & Activities
Join Virginia Harper at the Kushi Institue:
Virginia comes to the Kushi Institute only once every year to teach powerful and effective steps to improve a degenerated digestive system. Digestion is one of the central systems of the body – how everything else functions depends upon how well nutrients and energy is absorbed in our digestion.
Diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease and Takayasu Arteritis at age 23, Virginia was terminally ill and given little chance of survival. She healed herself by adopting a wholefoods macrobiotic diet and has been consulting clients for over 20 yrs from all over the world. If you have been struggling with an inflammatory digestive condition, then you don’t want to miss attending this workshop!
Dates: August 28 – September 3, 2016

Testimonials: An Introduction to You Can Heal You
At the young age of 23 years old, Virginia was terminally ill and given little chance of surviving the medical diagnosis of Crohn’s disease and Takayasu Ateritis. As a result, she also suffered a stroke, and became depressed and bedridden.
In her desperate search, she learned about an inexpensive method of eating very simply that promised complete regeneration of her digestive system. After a few months on the program, Ginny went from death’s door completely symptom-free. This 180-degree reversal came after seven years of suffering the painful symptoms of digestive inflammation and with multiple hospital visits. The healing experience brought her knowledge about the workings of her body and the profound connection between all digestive illnesses and the food each person has been eating. The program also restored her body’s innate flexibility, her ability to have children (she went on to have two), and gave her back flexibility and a youthful appearance.
She went on to study this profound knowledge in order to help others. And for the last 20 years she has consulted with clients all over the world, including Europe, Canada, Russia, Australia, China and much of the US. Her focus is showing people that, contrary to what the doctors and current medical education has told them, they can *completely* cure their intestinal disease—regardless of the particular disease name they’ve been given. Ginny’s expertise is in facilitating healing of the digestive track at whatever stage or condition it is in. These principles compliment medical treatment and are compatible with all religions and cultures.
Recognized as one of the leading digestive counselors in the world, she is the author of the book Controlling Crohn’s Disease the Natural Way, now in its third edition. Virginia also founded the Ki of Life Learning Center, a nonprofit residential study house in 2003. She is the head nutritional counselor at the 5-star Sha Wellness Clinic in Alicante, Spain and works there 5 months every summer. She is active in educating on the prevention of Crohn’s and Colitis. She is a regular speaker at area universities and teaches in Canada, England and Spain.
