Offering Nutrition Classes and Cooking Demonstrations
Enjoy the health benefits of a plant based diet. Get started today!
I am a physician and I have been serving the New Bern, NC area for over 10 years. After spending 25 years treating people for illnesses that are largely preventable I have decided to begin a program that teaches the benefits of a healthy, plant-based lifestyle to our community. Please join me!
Please enjoy this introductory video of the Food For Life program.
The classes offered through Optimum Health are based on the award winning Food For Life program started by Dr. Neil Barnard at the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine. Let's start to move our community towards a healthier lifestyle by adopting a plant-based diet. A healthy diet gets to the "root" cause of our societies most chronic diseases.
My desire is to educate the community about the health benefits of a plant-based diet. This lifestyle change will benefit everyone. Whether you are struggling with maintaining a healthy weight or fighting a chronic illness like diabetes or cancer, plant-based nutrition has been proven to be beneficial. The classes will provide instruction and demonstrations of easy to make recipes that are as delicious as they are nutritious.
Did you know that 78% of all chronic illness is due to 4 modifiable lifestyle factors: SMOKING, OBESITY, SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE AND DIET? Dietary factors even outbeat smoking when it comes to causing cancer! The standard american diet is just that - SAD! A plant-based diet is the ONLY diet proven to reverse heart disease. A plant-based diet can also lower your blood pressure and help control your diabetes.
Let proper nutrition be your prescription for excellent health!
