A Healthier Today... Can Be Yours!
The “Plant-Based Nutrition Support Group” (PBNSG) was initially established to support those who had been diagnosed or were at risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Now, PBNSG empowers all who want to optimize their health by following a plant-based, low-fat diet.
PBNSG's founder, Paul Chatlin, was 56 years old when told he had three blocked coronary arteries: one 100% and two 65% blocked. Minutes before being wheeled into the operating room, his cardiologist suggested Paul try a unique nutrition plan.
Championed by Dr Caldwell Esselstyn, this diet reduces, and sometimes reverses, the effects of cardiovascular disease. Paul started the nutrition plan, and within weeks his chest pains had ceased. Soon his cholesterol levels dropped dramatically. Today, Paul is as healthy and active as ever. If you, too, are willing to make changes to live a longer and healthier life, the “Plant Based Nutrition Support Group” is here to offer you kindness and support!
Dr. Kahn described PBNSG's start in an article on the Forks Over Knives website.
In February of 2014, we held our first PBN Support Group meeting. We thought that 20-40 people would be a great showing. 123 people attended! 23 people signed up as volunteers. The meeting was held at Beaumont Hospital. On March 24th, we held our second meeting. We thought there would be a significant drop off of participants, but we were wrong! We again had over 110 people attending, 44 of whom were new. This means that we now had over 220 people in our support group and 40 volunteers. In both April and May we continued to grow and as of 2018,we have over 5,700+ members! THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us on this journey!
We offer education, events, recipes, exercise, fun, and much more!
Please help us help others. Join our group, make a positive life change and contribute to the well-being of others.
Though no one can go backwards to make a brand-new start, anyone can change today to make a brand new ending.
