As a wellness enthusiast and yoga practitioner, I have been practicing and preaching the benefits of a plant based diet for the last 10 years. My nursing education and graduate education included very little training in dietary counseling beyond those diets recommended by the ACC or the USDA. Reading books like the China Study really inspired me to study how plant based diets might help my patients. I was thrilled to learn about the groundbreaking physicians Dean Ornish and Caldwell Esselstyn and how strongly their research and work supported plant based diets.
| Now as an Advanced Practice Nurse working primarily with adult and geriatric populations with multiple chronic diseases, I am experiencing first hand how the traditional western diet is leading to traditional western disease. It is my greatest hope that I can help others learn to lead a plant based life to prevent and reverse chronic disease, and improve their overall health and happiness.
