In this class, you will learn abot the right food choices that can help reduce the risk of developing cancer as well as overcome the disease after it has been diagnosed.
Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Type 2 Diabetes -
Until Dr. Barnard’s scientific breakthrough, most health professionals believed that once you developed diabetes, you were stuck with it—and could anticipate one complication after another, from worsening eyesight and nerve symptoms to heart and kidney problems. But as this groundbreaking work reveals, this simply is not true. In a series of studies—the most recent funded by the National Institutes of Health—Dr. Barnard has shown that it is possible to repair insulin function and reverse type 2 diabetes. By following his scientifically proven, life-changing program, diabetics can control blood sugar three times more effectively than with the standard diet; and cut back on and in some cases eliminate medications while reducing the risk of diabetes complications.
KICKSTART YOUR HEALTH - 5 week class. The first class introduces you to the health benefits of a plant-based diet and helps you get organized to begin (on week 2) a 21 day test run of eating plant-based. If you are anxious to get a jumpstart on your health in just three short weeks you’ll get fast results: drop pounds, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, improve blood sugar, and more.
