Pritikin’s health resort is nestled in a private enclave, a gracious work of Italianate architecture, and is surrounded by 650 acres of tropical paradise in Miami. Amenities include swimming pools, five championship golf courses, tennis courts, and meditative labyrinths. Country Inns Magazine rated Pritikin as “the resort spa of choice in Florida.”
This outside beauty provides the perfect setting for the life-changing events that take place within. Pritikin is known internationally for results unparalleled at any other health resort. Recently, the London Business Times hailed Pritikin as “arguably the most effective diet, exercise, and lifestyle change program in the world.” For 35 years, Pritikin has attracted a wide variety of guests, totaling more than 100,000. Some come to prevent or reverse health challenges like heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and hypertension. Others come simply to look, feel, and live better.
No other lifestyle program has been more closely studied by the scientific community – or has achieved such phenomenal success. More than 100 studies published in prestigious medical journals like the New England Journal of Medicine have documented Pritikin’s remarkable results, which include:
- Significant and lasting weight loss.
- Lowering of blood pressure to normal, medication-free levels.
- Dramatic reductions in virtually all risk factors for heart disease, including cholesterol, triglycerides, and inflammatory markers like C-reactive protein.
- For many, reductions or elimination of cholesterol medications and avoidance of heart surgery.
- Control of Type 2 diabetes, and for the vast majority, reductions or elimination of drugs.
