As human beings we are nourished by the foods we eat, water we drink and air we breath. Our choices have dramatic influence over our health and well-being. In the modern post-industrial world, we need to re-examine our food choices. Evidence supports shifting to a more whole food plant-based diet to support health and reverse disease. For some this can be challenging and support will be needed. At Impact Health we work with you to discover the pleasure and health benefits of plant-based eating.

Modern living is associated with hidden unseen dangers that lurk in the environment.
