I can help.
From my experience,
working on the surgical floor of a level-one trauma hospital in NYC where I optimized nutrition therapy for individuals after stroke, heart attacks, stent placement, orthopedic and gastrointestinal surgery;
to managing the Nutrition division of hemodialysis centers where I created easy to implement and engaging programs to help people adhere to a difficult renal diet while also taking care of their heart (as that is the number one cause of death among people with kidney disease);
to working with private clients at one of Manhattan’s top nutrition private practices where I created personalized, tailored meal plans, and became a partner and cheer leader for my clients to successfully accomplish their goals,
I know I can help you.
I shifted my practice to focus specifically on Preventive Cardiology because I saw an underlying commonality that most of my patients/clients were at risk of or have diabetes, heart disease, or have had a heart attack and I wanted to help others create realistic, long-lasting change to avoid preventable hardships.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in the United States:
Someone has a heart attack every 40 seconds.
Each minute, more than one person dies from a heart disease related event.
Approximately 1 in every 4 deaths is attributed to heart disease annually.
And about half of America has at least 1 risk factor for heart disease.
Crazy thing is… 80% of cases are preventable through lifestyle medicine!
These painstaking statistics empowered me to dedicate my life to helping others, increasing their knowledge around this area, and lowering their risk through personalized, science-based lifestyle medicine.
