Dr. Walter Kempner


The Rice Diet Program was originated by Dr. Walter Kempner in 1939 at Duke University Medical Center for the treatment of high blood pressure and kidney disease. It was soon found to be effective in the prevention and treatment of angina pectoris, heart failure, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia and obesity.

This web site shares many years of physical results realized through the medically supervised residential program formally offered in Durham, NC, as well as inspiring testimonials from participants who practiced the Rice Diet at home with the guidance of our books and their personal physician.

Rather than providing a daily service, we now offer ongoing health retreats for those interested in learning more on preventing and reversing chronic disease and actualizing the health and life they desire.
