Montefiore Cardiac Wellness Program
When I turned thirty I started to see something happen to all my friends' parents, aunts and uncles, they started to manifest heart disease (heart attacks and strokes). I had already gone through that experience with my own dad who had a stroke. You don't really know how scary the prospect of losing a love one is until you are in the emergency room, hoping that they will be okay. I don't wish that on anyone.
To see so many of my friend's parents, as well as my own family, start to have heart disease made me realize the importance of preventative and supportive measures.
I had the pleasure of being introduced to a program that does just that: Montefiore's Cardiac Wellness Program.
The program focuses on reversing heart disease with a whole food/ plant based diet.
The program is led by Doctor Robert Ostfeld and Registered Dietitian Lauran Graf both very passionate and amazing people. I truly believe in the work they are doing and have met some of their patients who have lost not only weight but have also reversed many health problems.
