Empowering children & families with evidence based nutrition
Thank you for visiting the FYMHS.ORG site.
The most important thing I hope you take with you is the passion I have to make a difference for our children.
Type 2 diabetes is, and has been described as, a pandemic. It is one of the worst, most preventable nutritional disorders of the last 50 years, and today's children have a shorter life expectancy than that of their parents.
It is incumbent upon all of us to work together and change this. If traditional approaches were effective, there would be a significant reduction in the numbers, but it is not working. It is foolish to continue to "manage" a disorder that is preventable, and reversible, when using evidence based nutrition can change the outcome.
The most effective way to end this pandemic is to change the faulty lifestyles that have created the problem in the first place. This is the approach of Lifestyle medicine, and evidence based nutrition. It looks at the whole person, and their environment. Teaching people how to change the behaviors, working from a mindset of prevention, and using a positive, empowering, and engaging interaction through this seminar program, I endeavor to create opportunities for children, and their families to make positive changes so they may enjoy a life filled with joy and happiness.
I do this from a place of love, and because I am fulfilling the promise that I made to my husband, Fariborz, before he died, that I would help others avoid the terrible suffering he endured.
I promise to keep the operating expenses of this organization streamlined, with no frills.
I promise to continually update the program curriculum for the best possible outcome.
I promise 100% of donations for the scholarship program will go into the scholarship program.
I promise to listen to your comments and suggestions for making this program a success.
In March 2018, I donated my veterinary syringe patent, Publication No. US-2017-0266383-A1, Flexible Medicament Injector And Method of Use, to this nonprofit for whatever intrinsic value it may bring, and as a way of showing my deep commitment to make this, pay it forward, program work. And to those at Perkins Coie that have given their time to make this possible, thank you most sincerely.
I thank Joel Fuhrman, M.D. for his compassion and encouragement in helping me moving forward to start this organization. We will be using many of his books in the programs.
This organization is based upon vegan principles, and advocates for planet health through the discontinuation of abusing animals for food, and products.
When we seek common good, we share common ground.
