I was sitting at Family Car Care in Gloucester one sunny morning and opened up the latest issue of North Shore Magazine to find an article about Nourish Health with Food For Life.
I read the article and immediately called her:
I was surprised to hear her heart warming voice answer the phone! She had a more than a full class, however, she didn’t turn me away. She just said “as long as you don’t mind cozy!” I knew I was in the right hands and heading in the right direction.
I have had a rough past 12 years. If you saw my medical chart you would see nothing but an upward tick in all the wrong ways, i.e., weight, blood pressure, bad cholesterol. My joints have become inflamed. This is all due to a stroke that I experienced 12 years ago. I have been put on medication after medication for this problem then that.
I knew in my heart that if I could prevent some of the problems through what I ate, then I would be healthier and happier. And hopefully be able to get off some of my medications.
The classes with Mona are fun and packed full of wonderful information on health and what we eat.
My last class is next week, and I am already having the “Sunday Blues” about it.
I will just need to join Mona for her monthly free round table to get new ideas and tips along with recipes that will continue me on this new lifestyle.

At my first class with Mona Sigal, MD, I was handed this new book The Starch Solution by Dr. John McDougall. He has a health program in California and a lot of terrific free information on his website
So how hard has it been? Not very. I haven’t been as excited about cooking as I am now. There are so many things you can do with plant based meals. It’s a challenge I am happy to take on!:)
If you have any questions about my experience, please do pop me an email.
