            Presented by Jennifer Shalz, MD. Nearly 80% of chronic diseases affecting adults in the U.S. today are attributed to lifestyle. These chronic illnesses include cardiovascular disease (coronary artery disease, heart attacks, and stroke), erectile dysfunction, diabetes, dementia, and some cancers. Adjusting your health habits and adopting an anti-inflammatory lifestyle can help prevent and treat these conditions so you not only gain more years of life but better years of life. An anti-inflammatory lifestyle incorporates a consistent daily exercise habit, a primarily plant-based diet-such as the Mediterranean diet-healthy sleep, healthy weight, and techniques to increase stress resiliency and build strong social connections. Please join us for this free seminar to learn more about how you can adopt an anti-inflammatory lifestyle to achieve your best years.
