When it comes to your well being, the right diet can make all the difference. Tri Valley Health & Aesthetics Nurse Practitioner Donna Bierut possesses a certification in plant-based nutrition from Cornell University, and her treatment plan expands upon the groundbreaking book The China Study by Dr. T. Colin Campbell. Donna will educate you and get you started on a plant-based diet.
A plant-based diet focuses on whole and minimally refined, or unrefined, plants. This includes vegetables, fruits, tubers, whole grains and legumes and minimizes (or excludes) meat, dairy products, eggs and highly refined foods. See why people throughout the Bay Area and San Ramon Valley are choosing to adopt this nutritional approach.
The Benefits of Plant-Based Nutrition
Why switch to plant based nutrition? A plant-based diet could prevent — and even reverse — heart disease. It can lower your risk for Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Eating red meat, including beef, pork and lamb, is associated with increased rates of cancer and heart disease. The American Cancer Society recommends eating a healthy diet for the prevention of cancer with an emphasis on plant foods. Compelling new research has shown that cutting meat from your diet will decrease your risk of atherosclerosis.
Not only will this diet promote weight loss, but preparing your own meals with whole, real foods will also save you money. Talk to us about the many ways a plant-based nutritional approach can help you achieve your goals of total wellness. Contact us online or call 925.484.5483 today!
