My name is Andrea Conway and I am a Health Coach. My husband Dr. Jimmy Conway is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon in Oklahoma City. Our journey began like this: One morning my husband awoke with left arm pain. With a family history of heart disease he thought he should probably go to the doctor; he had not been to see a doctor in years which is typical of most doctors. Blood work revealed a cholesterol level of 494 and triglycerides of 3,295. This was scary! After he failed a stress test a Cardiac Cath was scheduled. The cath revealed significant blockage to his LAD artery and his right main artery. The doctors decided his blockage was too significant to stent and he was scheduled for a triple bypass. We went home and did a TON of research. After finding our way to The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell Esselstyn, M.D. we opted to try a whole foods, plant-based diet and opted NOT to have surgery. Nearly four years later I'm happy to report that my husband Jimmy is healthier than ever with a cholesterol of 120 and triglycerides around 200. We are passionate about spreading the word aobut this healthy lifestyle.
We started PlantBasedOKC to provide education and information to the public regarding the benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet. We do nutritional seminars for free so look for our next event under the "events" tab! I also provide personal Health Coaching options for anyone interested.
It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to work on their nutrition and goals with a trained professional. As a Health Coach, I create a supportive environment that will enable you to achieve all of your health goals. I have studied all the major dietary theories and use practical lifestyle coaching methods to guide you in discovering which approach works best for you.
Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline. I will help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.
