UC-VEG is pleased to announce that the next virtual Lifestyle & Nutrition Course, will start on April 21st!
The Lifestyle & Nutrition Course is a 13 week, evidence-based, disease prevention and reversal series that uses lifestyle medicine to address the leading causes of death in the U.S. New topics are covered each week, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and other chronic illnesses as well as how to view and manage stress, mindfulness avoiding toxins and chemicals “moving naturally” or incorporating more exercise into the daily experience, and practical strategies for lasting happiness, all in a socially supportive atmosphere. The theoretical portion of the program is complemented with practical cooking demos, along with take-home packets of helpful handouts and easy and affordable recipes.
Over 2,000 people have gone through the course in the last 5 years and have seen profound results such as significant weight loss, a decrease in dosage or even discontinuation or certain medications, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, improved mood and greater energy and vibrancy. Health improvements are verifiable through pre and post blood draws generously provided at the 2nd and 12th week of class by CHI Mercy. Over 45 (and counting) doctors and other medical providers around Douglas County are referring their patients to the course as a preventative measure and means to address the root causes of illness that many are afflicted by right here in our community.
It is of utmost importance to UC-VEG that the information contained in the 13 week course is disseminated to those that need it. Therefore, there is no fee for the course, though donations are welcome and appreciated.
