The Maxine Firm: Eat Your Way Off of Medication

March is National Nutrition Month, and to celebrate The Maxine Firm is taking the opportunity
to educate the African-American community about proper nutrition and how it can be the key
to one’s medical issues. By changing the conversation of the role nutrition plays will help
people take their health into their own hands.

Heart disease is the number one killer for all Americans and stroke is also a leading cause of
death. For African Americans the risks of being diagnosed with those diseases are even higher.
High blood pressure, obesity and diabetes are the most common conditions that increase the
risk of heart disease and stroke, according to the American Heart Association. Now throw in
mental health and all of the medications people are being prescribed to control everything. This
can be overwhelming and costly especially for the African-American community.

The Maxine Firm provides tools that will change a person’s lifestyle in order to prevent heart
disease, high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes. By changing one’s lifestyle, The Maxine Firm
teaches ways to “eat your way off medication, shorten hospital stays, and change attitudes
when it comes to personal trainers.”

  1. Avoid Added Sugars
  2. Compare Food Labels
  3. Eat a Variety of Foods & Colors
  4. Increase Fruit and Vegetable Consumption
  5. Reduce Sodium Intake

The approach for The Maxine Firm doesn’t involve one aspect of health but looks at the body
being a temple and approaching it from physical, mental and spiritual aspects.

The Maxine Firm is kicking off the month with a wellness symposium, Walking Towards
Wellness Baton Rouge at Shiloh Methodist Baptist Church to educate the African American
communities on ways to improve their lifestyles and change the trajectory of their lives when it
comes to their health.

The Maxine Firm is a nutrition and wellness firm powered by a network of healthcare
professionals working to prevent chronic disease directly related to nutrition practices as a
primary objective.
