Rebecca is passionate about helping others overcome chronic illness through sustainable lifestyle change.
NUTRITION IN HEALTHCARE CONFERENCE
Rebecca was invited to share her story of recovery from chronic illness at the Doctors for Nutrition, Nutrition in Healthcare Conference, 2019. She was part of a Q&A panel prior to the Southern Hemisphere premiere of the health documentary, "Code Blue".
Many of the conference delegates remained after the presentation by the keynote speaker, Dr Neal Barnard, to listen to the Q&A panel. This film aims to give many people diagnosed with MS hope and empower them to make lifestyle changes to halt and reverse the disease.
"I hope to break down the stigma associated with Multiple Sclerosis. With the right lifestyle interventions it doesn't have to be a life sentence."
NUTRITION IN HEALTHCARE SYMPOSIUM
Rebecca spoke alongside Dr Michael Klaper at the Nutrition in Healthcare Symposium in Adelaide. Dr Klaper is a wealth of knowledge and so passionate about plant based nutrition and its power to heal.
Rebecca shared how she was diagnosed with a potentially debilitating and life threatening condition and is healing with a whole food, plant-based diet.
"It's the food! It's always been the food!"
