Providing you with the assistance
and resources you need to move
When a farmer is facing a crisis, it can create an emotional toll on every aspect of life. From paying bills, to feeding their children and caring for the livestock and crops. The Kansas agriculture community has always come together to help our neighbors in a time of need and that is what this effort is all about: pulling together to help our own through a stressful time. Below you will find resources designed to help those in the agriculture community deal with a crisis. If you are a farmer in crisis, or know of someone in need of immediate assistance, contact your local Kansas Community Mental Health Center or call the
National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255.
How much does the program cost?
Prices will be determined as program is finalized and becomes available.
Are there refunds?
There are no refunds, with the rare exception of cases of major personal medical status changes (hospitalization, for example) prohibiting participation. In these cases, documentation from a physician will be required.
Is this program right for me?
The program is intended for those who are interested in changing or reinforcing their personal diet and lifestyle choices. You could have one of any number of goals. One of the most common goals people have is weight loss, but there are also participants who may be a healthy weight but who want to optimize their diet and lifestyle due to a diagnosis of heart disease or cancer or some other ailment. The majority of participants will have weight to lose and because weight is easily trackable and reportable, we will maintain some degree of focus on getting to a healthier weight.
Is the consultation prior to starting group a medical visit?
No, it is not, unless you are located in New York State. Because of medical licensing laws, Dr. Campbell can only perform medical diagnosis/treatment services (ordering and interpreting lab tests or imaging tests, or prescribing or adjusting medication, for example) for those individuals located in New York State, where he holds his medical license.
Is the program medically supervised?
No it is not. Dr. Campbell is careful to practice within medical licensing laws and will provide you with a letter to share with your primary care physician so that they may provide medical supervision.
What will be required of me?
We will ask that you adhere to a strict whole-food, plant-based diet, which means that you avoid all animal foods and added pure fats, including ALL oils and solid fats like margarine, coconut oil, etc... The good news is you can eat as much as you want to be comfortably full, whenever you want. The diet composition is based, in part, on heart disease research showing a strict plant-based diet without added pure fats may cause regression of athersclerosis (blockages in the blood vessels) in the heart.
Are supplements recommended or required for this program?
Dr. Campbell recommends that everyone following a strict plant-based diet take a daily multivitamin that contains vitamin B12 and vitamin D. Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that must be supplemented regularly on a strict plant-only diet and will be in a multivitamin at a reasonable dose. Otherwise there are no supplements required, unless warranted by specific medical conditions (history of gastric bypass surgery, etc...).
