PTP431 Colleen Montgomery
In: Podcast0

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Colleen Montgomery all about a plant-based diet for cardiac rehab patients and the importance of lifestyle on our overall health. Colleen breaks down some cardiology information for us like what cardiac rehab is, who should be getting it, and what lifestyle changes can be made to improve cardiac health. We discuss statins and why you would want to try to avoid them, how to cautiously get to exercising and we also discuss why children and teens need to start making smart decisions for their health now. 

Colleen Montgomery is a Clinical Exercise Physiologist, Certified Plant-Based Health Coach, and owner of Wellness Within LLC. During her 12 years working with heart patients she discovered the powerful medicinal effects of food and other lifestyle choices. Now, her clients improve their heart health in big ways by combining the most effective behavior change techniques with the healthiest habits on the planet.

Share this out with any cardiac patient you know.
