“Get Healthy in 2020 With a Plant-Based Diet” presented by Dr. Robert Breakey, M.D.
Join VegMichigan and Dr. Robert Breakey for a free presentation on the health benefits of eating vegan and a delicious vegan food tasting. Our “Standard American Diet” is largely responsible for the epidemic of chronic diseases that we are experiencing in America including obesity, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, heart disease, and several cancers. The good news is that we have made great progress in identifying the root causes for these chronic diseases, and we are recognizing that all of them are largely preventable, and many are even reversible through some straightforward lifestyle changes. By choosing whole plant-based foods that are truly health supporting, engaging in at least moderate exercise and ensuring that we sleep well, we have the opportunity to greatly enhance our health and vitality well into our elder years.
Dr. Robert Breakey, MD is a 5th generation graduate from the University of Michigan Medical School. He completed his Family Medicine residency at the University of Wisconsin in 1984 and has practiced Lifestyle Family Medicine in Ann Arbor since 1985. He has special interests in health promotion, whole food plant-based nutrition, positive wellness and supporting the natural healing process that we all have within us. He is Chairman of the Board and Head of the Family Medicine Division for IHA – a multi-specialty medical group centered in and around Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Join VegMichigan at the Trenton Public Library for a delicious free vegan food tasting and presentation. Former University of Michigan football player, Marc Ramirez, will discuss how he reversed Type 2 diabetes and other illnesses with the power of plants. Enjoy free vegan taste samples and learn about the benefits of a plant-based diet. Marc has a wonderful story to share and will inspire you to make positive changes in your own life.
Marc Ramirez is a former University of Michigan football player and TEDx presenter who lost 50 pounds and reversed type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, psoriasis, ED, obestity, and frequent heartburn through the power of food. On December 3, 2011, he and his wife, Kim, began a whole foods, plant-based lifestyle. In just two months Marc no longer needed his 5 medications, including insulin shots. He and Kim felt thrilled with the results, but they also felt frustrated because not enough people know that this way of eating might help them too. In order to raise awareness about the power of plants, they decided to create the non-profit Chickpea and Bean Inc. (Kim is Chickpea because she’s a chick and Marc is bean because, well, he loves beans!) Together they strive to educate people about the power and benefits of a plant-based lifestyle.
Join VegMichigan for a presentation and delicious plant-based food tasting. Marc Ramirez will share his inspirational journey to health. In 2011, Marc and his spouse, Kim, began a whole food, plant-based lifestyle. This change cured Marc’s type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, ED, frequent heartburn, psoriasis, and he also lost 50 pounds. Come learn how Marc’s story can benefit your own life. VegMichigan will also provide a variety of plant-based dishes for you to enjoy. Come see for yourself why plant-based eating is becoming so popular.
