Food Is Your Best Medicine

The Art of Self-Nourishment

For decades Food Is Your Best Medicine has been a cornerstone teaching,  successfully training persons, doctors and holistic practitioners how to heal eating habits and shift their relationship with food.  Charley has served 45 years as a clinician, using nutrition as a primary therapy, with more than 40,000 hours dedicated to this craft alone.   This naturopathic nutrition therapy and training aids in healing illness and imbalance within the body, mind, and emotions through a transformation of one's relationship with eating and food.  


In this guided course, participants learn to transform relationships with food, hunger, cravings, food addictions, and eating dysfunction(s).  Participants in our naturopathic nutrition therapy are guided and supported as they are trained in how to listen to their body, how to carefully observe their body and emotional response to food, and explore the motivations and impulses of their eating habits and rituals.  Patient-students learn to sense the difference between a craving of the mind or emotions and a true desire of the body.   And there's so much more to this guided naturopathic course, with fasting, detoxification, and more natural therapies.  


Food Is Your Best Medicine is not a diet.   It's a complete & comprehensive naturopathic nutrition therapy program that cultivates a healing relationship between participant and eating.  It establishes a personalized eating regimen, purifies the body of metabolic poisons, identifies and eliminates food allergies, and transforms one's relationship with hunger.

What patient-students say about their experience...

I was referred to Dr. Cropley by a dear friend who took one of his seminars about food being medicine. I was recently diagnosed with a serious condition and was feeling frustrated that my doctors just put me on a pill and wanted to “watch it”. There is never discussion about how to HEAL disease, only how to maintain disease. I was excited to find someone who took the time to look at the whole picture of my health and help me be proactive to reverse my condition. Dr. Cropley is a kind and compassionate man with so much knowledge to share. I feel like I am in good hands. -Pamala R.
