Personal Hobbies and Interests

Dr. Eric Berg's enthusiasm for health permeates many aspects of his life, including his pursuits outside the Berg Institute. It's become a pastime for him; in his own words, "I am continuously exploring for fundamental causes why individuals develop ailments." His struggle to overcome the negative consequences of excessive work and eating led to his enthusiasm.

By the time he was 32, his new knowledge of diet had restored his vitality and given him the capacity to keep up with the demanding schedules of his wife Karen and their three energetic kids.

One of Eric's most valuable yet scarce resources is free time. Playing his custom-built guitar and collaborating with Karen to produce fresh, appealing dishes with a healthy twist provide him inspiration and relaxation.

Dr. Berg currently resides on a picturesque farm, undertaking extensive research on the soil's ability to support the growth of nutrient-dense plants and animals. Karen concurs that the ground was the source of everything in the kitchen.
