Integral Yoga Institute Presents: The Transformative Power of Lifestyle Medicine with Dean Ornish
Saturday, Oct 27th | 11:30am – 1:00pm

Dean Ornish, M.D., was the first to prove that comprehensive lifestyle changes can reverse the progression of coronary heart disease, early-stage prostate cancer, and other chronic conditions.  He also found that changing lifestyle affects your genes—turning on protective genes and turning off genes that promote heart disease, type 2 diabetes, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and colon cancer. He also directed the first controlled study showing that these lifestyle changes may begin to reverse cellular aging by lengthening telomeres, the ends of our chromosomes which control aging.  Dr. Ornish will review these findings and the dramatic cost savings that occur in the first year as well as practical suggestions on how to incorporate these lifestyle changes into a busy life.  For more information: www.ornish.com
