Diet of Hope

Many neurological symptoms are best managed by paying better attention to what types of food that you eat and your weight. Losing weight is often the best way to improve your neurological symptoms without adverse side effects , whether your issue is pain, numbness, weakness, or trouble sleeping. Often the food that you eat may be worsening your disease without your full awareness. 

For this reason, Honolulu Neuroscience Clinic presents a well-formulated system for managing weight related disease entitled Dr. Gann’s Diet of Hope, presented by LaRae Barnes, APRN.

The program was founded by Tucson, AZ cardiologist Dr. Dietma Gann and his wife Elizabeth Gann, providing care to over 20,000 individuals in that region.

We would love to have you join this exciting program to help you gain control over your health

Diet of Hope is currently available at our Big Island locations in Hilo and Kealakekua.

Lynda's Story

“When I started the Diet of Hope I had bight blood pressure, high cholesterol, atrial fib (irregular heartbeat), borderline diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea. At this time, by blood pressure and cholesterol are normal. I am no longer boderline diabetic and my sleep apnea and atrial fib continue to improve as I continue to lose weight.”.

” My journey has’t been perfect, but I am committed to this lifestyle change. Everyone at Diet of Hope has been very supportive. I now understand that failure is not getting back on and trying again.”

” I had lost all hope until I came to Diet of Hope.”

“I wasn’t hungry on the program.”

” There are no pills, no gimmicks. Just good nutritious food choices.”
