But No One Will DO That
A two part workshop on plant-based nutrition for the prevention and reversal of cardiac disease.
Part 1: Dr. Chad Teeters, Chief Cardiologist at Highland Hospital Rochester speaks on Plant-Based Nutrition for The Prevention and Reversal of Heart Disease. Dr. Teeters will present the health benefits, specifically cardiac, in transforming to a plant-based diet. Dr. Teeters began his own plant-based journey in the spring of 2016 while attending “A Plant-Based Diet: Eating for Happiness and Health,” a 6-week 12-CME course given at Highland Hospital. As of this writing, Dr. Teeters has lost 80+ pounds, his blood pressure was 173 systolic and is now 115-120, and he is feeling better than ever! Dr. Teeters will present on the medical profession’s short sighted philosophy that patients will not live a plant-based lifestyle. Dr. Teeters counters, we must give patients the information, and allow them to make informed decisions.
Part 2: The Food, Transforming Your Kitchen Into a Plant-based Healing Ground. Jessica Meyers Altman of Garden Fresh Foodie will present how to take the medical and scientific literature and turn it into reality in your kitchen. Jessica will present how to build a plant-based pantry, food staples, and provide samples of plant-based dishes for improved health. Jessica will cover the importance of getting your family on board, as a vital part of this change.
