-posted by Jennifer G. for Laurie C.- Laurie Courage is a Certified Food For Life Educator with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and founder of Encouraging Greens Inc. She offers group nutrition/cooking classes that help people on the brink of a health crisis to restore their health and enjoy an energetic life for years to come by helping them understand what and how to eat. Laurie writes, "Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Fortunately, the same change in diet that has been shown to be so effective in turning diabetes around also helps to protect the heart, quite dramatically. Dean Ornish, M.D. and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn were among the first to show that a change in lifestyle could be as effective as and much safer than bypass surgery for those with significant heart disease. The World Health Organization says hypertension (high blood pressure) is 'the most important preventable cause of premature death in developed countries.' The good news is that blood pressure changes happen quickly, and plant-based diets help lower high blood pressure within a short time frame. There is no time like the present to eat to live. Fortunately, food that is good for you does not have to taste like medicine." This is a combined program, offering all the nutrition educations from 2 PCRM Food for Life classes - "Keeping a Healthy Heart" and "Healthy Blood Pressure" - along with 5 delicious recipes to sample in 3 hours. This class offers a unique opportunity to: - Acquire knowledge about the link between diet and heart disease
