Free Webinar: Radically Transform Your Health Through a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet
October 20, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Free webinar! No MCLE.
It’s the food! Currently, approximately 86% of US health care costs are attributable to chronic disease. Over 70% of adults in the U.S. are either overweight or obese; 50% have either prediabetes or diabetes, and coronary artery disease continues to be the #1 cause of death for men and women in the U.S. The tragedy of the dismal figures above is that the majority of chronic illness in the U.S. could be prevented by making healthy lifestyle changes, especially in the area of nutrition. A whole-food, plant-based diet has demonstrated the ability to prevent and reverse the majority of chronic illnesses. This session will explain what a whole-food, plant-based diet is, the evidence supporting its ability to reverse chronic illness and radically improve one’s health, and practical steps for adopting this lifelong joyful way of eating.
