Vegan Cardiologist Shares Heart Health Secrets at Carnivores Anonymous Event

Carnivores Anonymous

Vegan Cardiologist Heather Shenkman is hosting a free Carnivores Anonymous 12-Step program in Woodland Hills to support Los Angeles residents to achieve optimum health and tackle food addiction through plant-based eating. While Dr. Shenkman performs complex angioplasties to open up clogged coronary arteries, she prefers to help her patients reduce their risk of heart disease through a healthy lifestyle, including a plant-based diet and regular exercise, in addition to medication when appropriate.

“I am a strong believer in a plant-based diet for heart health,” said Dr. Shenkman. “Join me at Carnivores Anonymous on January 22 to learn how a plant-based diet has fueled my athletic success, and why I recommend it for all my patients.”

Dr. Shenkman has followed a plant-based diet for thirteen years. She is also an avid athlete, having completed over a hundred events of various distances, from sprint triathlons to Ironman distance triathlons, marathons and ultra-marathons, and several hundred-mile century cycling events.
