But can the food we eat help optimize our health to combat COVID-19? Can a plant-based diet help as we battle this virus and truly support optimal well-being? In this week’s episode, we’ll take a look at the booming popularity of the whole-food/plant-based diet, and how it may negate the impact of comorbidities with COVID-19. It’s not just science that supports a healthful diet! The Bible also highlights eight principles that can be easily remembered using the acronym WANT REST (Water, Air, Nutrition, Temperance, Rest, Exercise, Sunlight and Trust in God ). This program will focus on what science and the Bible say about nutrition. Join us for LEVEL UP Episode with host Dr. Lela Lewis and guests Pastor Mark Finley, Dr. Zeno Charles-Marcel and Dr. David DeRose as they talk about optimizing our health by knowing the facts about nutrition and rediscovering the wisdom God has shared through the scriptures.
