Once an avid electronic technophile living in a WiFi cloud with continuously ringing cellphones holstered on each hip, his observant engineer’s mind could not ignore the invisible yet growing Electrosmog, the consumer obliviousness to it, and the lack of expert understanding of biological hazards and lack of health safety standards for this burgeoning new EMF phenomenon.

Upon retiring from his fast paced professional career and finally having time to research and ponder the nature of invisible wireless pollution, what he learned made him resolve to put his engineering expertise to its best service yet – creating an EMF safe world where electromagnetic fields, cellphones and other wireless technologies were used by safer, smarter, informed consumers and the risks of EMF mitigated by trained certified EMF Experts. In addition to training Certified EMF Experts, Chris is a highly sought after speaker/presenter on popular and important EMF topics.

Denny Waxman

For over 4 decades, a multitude of clients under Denny’s care have overcome health issues both big and small — through personalized food and lifestyle choices that combine nature’s rhythms, proven dietary practices of long-standing civilizations, and clients’ individual constitutions.

Denny’s path toward prominence in Macrobiotics began with a twist of fate. As a young man, he was an admitted “junk-food junkie”, without direction, and not particularly happy. Walking into his room one day he found a book on his bed. He picked up a book by George Ohsawa and read it non-stop cover-to-cover, with relish. It put the world in a perspective for him that made so much sense! This profound experience ignited his life, and set him on a career path that remains a passion to this day.

One of his first main accomplishments was founding Essene Market & Cafe in 1969, the first health-foods store in Philadelphia. Later in his career he gained international recognition after helping a respected physician and CEO of Philadelphia’s Methodist Hospital recover from terminal prostate cancer. This was documented biographically in Dr. Anthony Sattilaro’s book “Recalled By Life”. After running Macrobiotic education centers in Europe, he went on to form his own in Philadelphia, “Strengthening Health Institute”.

He is distinguished in his field by his 43 years of diagnostic experience, his vast knowledge bank of specific foods, dishes and practices for personalized recommendations, helping his clients develop healthy habits at their own pace, simplifying advice, and using his principle of “adding to” diets, rather than following the “taking away” mindset that fails so many. As a result, he is not aware of any other current Macrobiotic Counselor who has had, by far, as many health recoveries.

If you are ready for powerful guidance to stabilize, support, and invigorate your health, invite Denny’s guidance today — and turn your life in the direction of feeling your most fabulous, looking your most vibrant and thinking with great clarity!

Just call Denny directly at 215-271-1858, or email him at dennywaxman@dennywaxman.com

Christina Pirello

An Emmy Award winning television personality, Christina Pirello, MFN, is one of America’s preeminent authorities on a healthier lifestyle utilizing natural and whole foods. This bright, free-spirited, vivacious redhead with a radiant personality delivers a much needed message to the world. She’s made it her purpose in life to show the world that everyone can look their best and feel great too, by learning to correctly select the best ingredients available.

Christina’s love affair with food began at a young age when she spent many happy hours cooking with her mother, who centered the family life in her Italian kitchen. “My mom was happiest at family gatherings while she was cooking.” That joy prepared Christina to understand the healing power of food. An understanding Christina would put to its test at age 26 when she was diagnosed with terminal leukemia. By the time her illness was identified, the cancer had already advanced to an acute stage. Her doctors gave her little chance of recovery, and her options with conventional medical therapies were limited. She was told she had only months to live and to prepare herself for the inevitable.

She was discouraged and uncertain. A chance meeting with her now husband Robert Pirello would change her life forever. Robert, a whole foods advocate, helped Christina change her lifestyle and diet based on healthy eating incorporating whole and unprocessed foods. This change saved her life! Christina overcame the odds and in the process developed an expertise in cooking with whole natural foods.

From that time, she was utterly convinced of the close relationship between diet and health. She found her life’s calling was to help others discover the importance of this relationship in their own lives. Christina studied and became an expert in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, acupuncture, macrobiotics and earned a Masters Degree in Nutrition and has authored seven cookbooks on the subject of healthy eating and natural living.

Today, almost 31 years after her illness, Christina is a glowing example and inspiration illustrating that food choices have an enormous impact on health and well-being.

Utilizing her internationally-respected TV show “Christina Cooks” and her many books she is: “Changing the Health of the World One Meal at a Time.”
