Plant Yourself - Embracing a Plant-based Lifestyle
Educating a Generation of Healthy, Savvy Moms and Girlfriends with Lana Kontos: PYP 207
April 25, 2017
Lana Kontos is a naturopath and women's health advocate who somehow managed to transcend her training and embrace the true sources of health. While still in high school, she was told by her guidance counselor that she should become an MD. But the contradiction in her education - like the brilliant, morbidly obese dean of her state university with a PhD in nutrition who was always in pain, and whose dietary preferences consisted largely of  steak and eggs - sent her into the business world. The combination of poor food habits and a high-stress job led to Lana developing acid reflux and IBS. At this point, her medical mind came to the rescue, as she researched the conditions and discovered her own successful treatment protocol.
