HOW PLANTS SUPPORT IMMUNE HEALTH
"It's time for all of us to reconsider the notion that viruses are the sole or even the primary cause of serious viral-associated illnesses... Poor nutrition not only makes us more susceptible to viruses but significantly impacts the length and severity of an illness.”
Next month, respected physician and nutrition science expert Joel Fuhrman, MD, will join us to explain how we can naturally strengthen our immune system using whole plant foods. As variants of COVID-19 continue to cause severe illness throughout the world, we'll discuss how superior nutrition may offer us another layer of protection from the serious consequences of this virus and others. You'll learn how whole plant foods work to not only fend off cancer and viruses but protect against all causes of premature death and promote longevity.
Our virtual community-wide jumpstart is launching in October! Open to residents of the New York metro area and beyond, the 21-Day Plant Powered Jumpstart is the chance to experience the power of nutrition in healing, and learn practical skills for a healthy plant-based lifestyle.
Save the Dates! Orientation sessions (choose one): October 20 or 21 Sunday afternoon sessions: October 24 - November 14 Mid-week group mentorship meetings: Choose Wednesdays or Thursdays Registration opens the week of September 13th
If you’re eager to share your personal experience with a plant-based lifestyle, our first two-session Mentorship Training program will give you the knowledge, skills, and confidence to guide those who are ready to transition to whole plant foods.
