Finding relief from acid reflux doesn’t always require medication or avoiding spicy foods. Join us next month to hear otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat doctor) Craig Zalvan, MD, explain the differences between gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) and laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) and how eating whole plant foods promotes healing of these common conditions. You’ll hear how Dr. Zalvan and his colleagues' research has demonstrated that a predominantly plant-based diet can effectively reverse reflux disease and improve symptoms.
Explore how sustainable farming practices build healthy produce and people. Join us at Red Fox Farm for an afternoon of learning and inspiration!
