WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST ME?
For the past 19 years I have worked along side those who have been devastated with heart disease. I have educated hundreds of patients on evidence-based strategies to reduce the risk of heart disease. I have also seen patients come in time and again for heart procedures because they didn't take their heart health seriously enough or were just not provided the support they needed to change their heart health trajectory.
Through my years of working as a registered nurse and naturopathic doctor, I have gained a deeper understanding of the causes of cardiovascular disease and risk factors beyond the traditional medical model. You are not a man and deserve a woman-specific approach. I understand women's unique risk and where the system fails women.
I don't have time to spend hours in the kitchen making fancy meals, or spending hours working out. And I know you probably don't either. So I will teach you exactly where you need to start and how to implement the most important strategies amidst the busy-ness of your days.
What past participants are saying...
"Who knew there is so much to learn and understand which can easily be applied to your everyday life! From clear and easy-to-navigate presentations to worksheets that reflected what was learned and discussed. Having the opportunity to speak with other women during these webinars about their personal heart health goals was key in understanding the ‘big picture'".
“I joined Dr. Olivia’s course last year and I loved every minute of it! Her modules were extremely informative and she kept me engaged the entire time. When she discussed each topic in more depth she was extremely concise and never had me feeling lost with all the technical terminology. Anyone taking this course will leave with a sense of empowerment and prepared to take charge of their own health and well-being with confidence!”
