LET ME TEACH YOU HOW TO GET YOUR BODY IN BALANCE.
Topic: Reversing Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Conquering Diabetes
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is caused by a slight excess of androgens. These extra hormones can cause irregular periods, skin changes, polycystic ovaries, and infertility. They can also change body fat patterns and reduce insulin sensitivity. This leads to rising blood sugars and sometimes diabetes. This class will review the causes and symptoms of PCOS and diabetes and show how to combat them through healthful food choices.
Attendees learn all of this while enjoying cooking demonstrations of delicious, healthful dishes, reviewing useful handouts and recipes, all in a supportive online group setting.
Based on the book Your Body in Balance: The New Science of Food, Hormones, and Health by Neal Barnard, MD, FACC, this set of classes addresses hormone-related problems including infertility, hot flashes, diabetes, and depression. Dietary choices have a surprisingly powerful effect on hormones and the problems they cause. The information provided in these classes explains the latest research and offers a new approach to treating, prevention, and even curing many of the most common and persistent health problems.
Learn that health-promoting foods, recipes, and meals can be easy, convenient and tastes great! Each class includes live food demos and hands-on cooking with Stefanie's in-depth food prep knowledge, Q&A, recipes, educational materials all in a supportive group. Recipes are designed to work for people on a budget who may also have minimal time or access to equipment. More importantly, every class and each ingredient supports a low-fat, plant-based diet plan that has been proven to prevent, manage, and in some cases reverse chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune disease, and even some forms of cancer.
This event is hosted by Plantspiration® and taught by Stefanie Ignoffo, a licensed Food For Life instructor with the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine.
