NEWSTART changed my life. Firstly, the health care team were some of the kindest and most caring of people. Upon arriving, they assessed my health issues which were my obesity, high blood pressure and my high blood sugar. Through the series of nutritional classes, daily walking, mental and spiritual encouragement and eating a whole food plant-based diet, I lost 18 pounds in 20 days and came home uplifted with normal blood pressure and perfect blood sugar readings! I was amazed and overjoyed!

When there – I did not practice portion control while eating and still I lost 18 pounds. They taught me how the food we eat affects our bodies and minds and the journey was life altering.

The biggest thing that I took away from the program was learning that my high blood sugar was not caused from simply eating a lot of sugar! Knowing the dynamics of our diseases helps us to navigate the world of nutrition and food intake – and that with the miracle of simple walking will change your health for the better forever. The program completely changed my outlook and my life and I will be forever grateful!
