It is a nutritional disease with a cure!

A Nutrition-Only Approach: Simple, Practical, Zero Side-Effects

About Dr. Charles Pruchno

Dr. Pruchno has been practicing medicine for over 35 years. He has devoted his career to understanding type 2 diabetes and the digestion of both sugar and processed carbohydrates.

As a board-certified Nephrologist (kidney specialist), Dr. Pruchno cared for thousands of patients with end stage renal disease, which often resulted from chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia.

Dr. Pruchno realized that in order to truly effect change in people’s health, he needed to uncover and fix the root cause of these chronic diseases – obesity.

Over the past 10 years, Dr. Pruchno’s main objective has been to identify and perfect a nutritional cure for type 2 diabetes and other medical illnesses associated with obesity.

His understanding of weight gain and human behavior led him to create the Jade Team Weight Loss and Diabetes Program through the Cedar Rapids VA, and the Health Transitions Clinic in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Dr. Pruchno’s nutrition-only approach has helped over 1000 people in the greater Cedar Rapids community permanently eliminate the need for medications related to hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, arthritis, chronic GERD, and type 2 diabetes.

WellnessFromFood was created to bring life-changing weight loss across the country using the power of food.
