We live in a time of great stress. This presentation features a unique approach in yogic science for mental self-control. Participants will understand how food affects sleep, mood, energy, digestion, and elimination of a person in treatment. The presentation will explain food combinations and therapeutic juice formulas for cleansing and rebuilding. It will integrate practical tools, such as breathing techniques to counter cravings and restore nervous system strength that has been handicapped from the use of substances. Through these learned techniques, one can transition from recovery to self-discovery.


Mukta Kaur Khalsa, PhD, has been the director of SuperHealth, a system of yogic science to break habits and addictive behavior, since 1973. She directed the first yogic-based hospital for those dually diagnosed with substance use and mental health disorders by JCAHO.

SuperHealth is also an approved education provider through NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals; the State of California Board of Sciences for MFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, LEPs, RNs; and with the American Holistic Nurses Association and Physical Therapists in New Mexico.
