About this Class

Heart disease is devastating to our health and economy. It’s the leading cause of death in this country, and according to The American Heart Association, by 2030, a projected 40.5% of the US population will have some form of cardiovascular disease. Yet, a significant number of research studies have documented that heart disease is easily preventable and reversible through a diet rich in plant-based options, and low in animal and processed foods.

This class will cover the most common precursors to heart disease, including diabetes, high blood pressed and high cholesterol. We’ll clear up confusion on the top heart-health myths, and share the best foods, exercise tips and lifestyle habits—like the #1 nutrient for heart health. You’ll learn how to interpret blood test results, and the optimal ranges for cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. Questions on cholesterol? We’ll discuss the true underlying cause of high cholesterol, a natural approach to lowering it, and the harmful side effects of statin drugs. Plus, learn more about the glycemic index and natural blood-sugar-stabilizing techniques to reverse diabetes.

This class includes:

  • Seasonal, organic lunch prepared by our Wellness Chef
  • Organic herbal tea and mineral-infused water
  • Nutrition and food education from our Master Nutrition Therapist
  • Recipe of the meal enjoyed
  • Handouts pertaining to class topic
