Food Strategies to Help Lower Your
Cholesterol and Blood Pressure.

February may conjure up thoughts of romance and valentines, but the best thing to give your sweetheart and yourself is a healthy heart. We’re talking about the one in your chest.

When you’re feeling healthy and strong you may not think too much about the health of your heart and what you should be doing to stay healthy. And, while it is well known that a healthy lifestyle can help you avoid cardiovascular disease, knowing specifically what constitutes a heart healthy diet is a little more challenging.

In this seminar you will learn how making changes on your plate can help to keep your heart healthy, and improve conditions such as high cholesterol, high triglycerides, and high blood pressure that if left untreated will rob you of health and vitality. Prevention is the key when it comes to issues of the heart and good nutrition is at the core of prevention.

We’ll teach you how food IS medicine. So whether you’re taking prescription drugs to control any of the above conditions, have slightly elevated blood lipids, have a family history of heart disease, or just want to keep your heart in tip-top shape, Monica will teach you how to use food as an effective treatment or prevention strategy.

Please join us on February 28 for Food Strategies to Help Lower Your
Cholesterol & Blood Pressure.
