Eating for Life is a 7-week workshop that will help you make the transition to a healthier lifestyle, and may help you reduce your medication usage. Research has repeatedly shown that a whole-foods, plant-based diet leads to reduced disease, greater energy and a longer life.
Anyone with high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol and/or another chronic disease may benefit from participating. Participants are required to complete a pre-class exam, bloodwork and have lab measurements taken before and after the session to measure progress.
The next session will begin on June 11, 2020. This class will meet weekly (on Thursdays) for 7 weeks.
The workshop will be entirely online and will include food demonstrations that you can follow along with in your kitchen as well as discussion and activities around some of the barriers to making dietary changes. Weekly classes will include information on the latest research about how nutrition can heal disease, new cooking techniques, discussion of personal goals and instruction on making lasting lifestyle changes. Groups are no larger than 14 participants and allow significant time for questions and discussion.
The Eating for Life Nutrition Workshop at North Country HealthCare is open to the public and classes are billed to insurance as a medical visit. Scholarships are available if needed.
The program is run by Dr. Shipra Bansal, MD and Joyce Davidson, WHFNP. Both have extensive experience in the science, as well as the practical aspects, of making dietary changes.
