Event Description

Although genetic factors appear important in susceptibility to diabetes, environmental factors are required to trigger it. Improvements to eating habits and lifestyle have been shown to effectively control diabetes and prevent complications. Come learn how to prevent and cope with diabetes naturally through food and lifestyle choices. Walk away with the knowledge and tools to identify healthy food options and avoid poor foods choices, recipe ideas, meal plans, information on helpful herbs and supplements, and tips on how to improve related lifestyle factors.

Facilitator: Nikoo Boroumand is passionate about health and nutrition. She is a certified nutritional practitioner from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition and also a Chartered Herbalist from Dominion Herbal College.
