What do climbers fear more than heights or falls? Injuries. Especially the type that won’t go away. Many climbers wonder what else they can do to expedite the healing process. They try rest and rehabilitation but very few consider diet. However, food plays a powerful role in the healing process. What you consume can either expedite healing or prolong injury.
Member Spotlight - Jonathan Lessin
An adventurer at heart, Jonathan Lessin was the cardiac anesthesiology residency director at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, as well as an assistant professor of anesthesiology at Georgetown University Medical School in Washington, D.C. Jonathan was diagnosed with Parkinson's at age thirty-eight and received his Deep Brain Stimulator (DBS) at age forty-three. He became a cyclist and avid sportsman just to prove he could, despite his diagnosis. In 2012, several years after his diagnosis, he voluntarily stepped into retirement to pursue life fulfillment. Jonathan now finds happiness encouraging his fellow "Parkies" to attempt things they thought they could never do.
