Eat Your Way To Health: How your food choices can prevent and reverse Heart Disease and Type 2 Diabetes. An Afternoon with Dr Caldwell Esselstyn and friends.

This event is aimed at a General Public audience. We have a full day conference for health professionals on May 16th.

Did you know there's a way of eating that has been shown to both prevent and reverse Coronary Heart Disease and Type 2 Diabetes? The power to change your health is in your own hands, in your knife, fork and spoon. We will show you how to use food as medicine.

Are you curious to explore this approach to perhaps come off or reduce your medications? Or maybe you are looking to avoid diseases that run in your family. Has your cholesterol or blood pressure become a problem? Join us for an afternoon with:

Dr Caldwell B Esselstyn, Jr (as featured in the documentaries Gamechangers and Forks Over Knives) Director of the Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Reversal Program at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute, USA who will present the latest research and information for heart health, and specifically to prevent and reverse coronary heart disease.

Dr Arvind Maheru London doctor with a special interest in plant-based nutrition who will cover why South Asians need to know about plant based nutrition and will share a patient story.

Dr Mahesh Shah Plant-based London GP, who will explore how to eat your way out of the insulin resistance that leads to Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes.

UK Patient Success Stories which show how this approach has produced significant reversal of heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.

Rohini Bajekal Certified Nutritionistand Lifestyle Medicine Professional will take you through how to thrive on a whole food plant-based diet, with a South Asian focus.

We will also have cooking demos from Lifeafterhummus and a Question and Answer panel. We want you to leave with the medical facts, the lifestyle change ideas, the recipes and the hope to help you beat these diseases.

Throughout the afternoon, there will be a specific focus on the health and disease vulnerabilities of those with South Asian ancestry.

People of South Asian ancestry (from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka), have 4 times the risk of heart disease compared to the general population, and often develop the disease 10 to 20 years earlier.

South Asians have a much greater risk of having a heart attack before the age of 50 and have emerged as the ethnic group with the highest rate of Type 2 Diabetes.

Coronary Artery Disease develops slowly over decades from birth. Whether you are 9 or 90 years old, this event will help you protect your health from the number one killer in the western world.

Come to hear and see for yourself.

N.B. We are mindful of the fact that this event falls in the month of Ramadan and will be sure to be respectful of this.
