What we're about

Are you confused about what foods you should be eating for optimal health? Perhaps you are interested in reversing or halting an existing condition. Are you interested in eating whole foods but have no idea where to start? Well you've come to the right place.

At this meetup, Dr. Riz and Maya teach about the benefits of incorporating whole foods into a diet. Dr. Riz is a Dallas-based vascular surgeon, who specializes in endovascular, interventional vascular, peripheral vascular surgery, and vein procedures. Maya is a wellness coach at the vascular center and works with patients who would like to make healthier choices.

"We do not have a product, program or membership to sell. We simply would like to spread the message that food is medicine. We offer free lectures throughout the community to anyone who is interested in learning about living foods and the research associated with plant foods. We would also like to create a sense of community around like-minded people."

If you are unable to come because of distance, please share our FB event link with others who you think can attend. Through the lens of filmmaker Marcia Machado, code blue reveals lapses in the current state of medicine and provides a common sense solution by featuring the practice of lifestyle medicine to prevent, manage and reverse chronic diseases. The film presents the hurdles to the proposed shift: antiquated curricula in medical schools, confusion in the media, inadequate government policies, and the underlying influences of the pharmaceutical and food industries. Code Blue follows a passionate physician, Dr. Saray Stancic, as she reflects upon her journey from a multiple sclerosis diagnosis to wellness through her own adoption of lifestyle medicine. Dr. Stancic introduces us to expert physicians and scientists who are paving the way to make meaningful and necessary change in our healthcare environment, and in turn, empowering audiences to stand up and reclaim control of their health.
