What is the Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP)?

The Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP) is a scientifically proven lifestyle intervention program that can prevent, arrest, and even reverse today’s most common diseases. CHIP is conducted worldwide in community organizations and corporations and led by certified facilitators.

Within the first 30 days, CHIP can normalize blood pressure, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, reduce BMI, stabilize fasting blood sugar, and reduce or eliminate the need for medications.

Nearly 800 people in Southeast Ohio have benefited from Live Healthy Appalachia's local CHIP program. Each CHIP class offered by Live Healthy Appalachia includes 18 group sessions, including videos, dynamic discussions, and peer support that integrates optimal nutrition, exercise, and behavioral psychology principles. The program also includes two health screenings for total cholesterol, LDL , HDL, triglycerides, fasting glucose, height, weight and blood pressure.
