Take charge of your health! Add years to your life, and life to your years.
Heart disease, obesity, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune diseases and other chronic conditions are afflicting more and more Americans and their families every year. Pills and surgeries treat the symptoms, but they frequently fail to address the underlying cause, they can be expensive, and they can have unwanted side effects and complications. Did you know that most of these conditions can be prevented, and in some cases even reversed, by adopting a whole-food, plant-based diet?
When: Sunday, September 18 2016, 9 am to 4 pm
Where: Atholton Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 6520 Martin Road, Columbia, MD
Come join us for a fun and informative day-long event to hear the latest science and to learn how to make the transition to a delicious, healthy, and rewarding new lifestyle.
