Here Is A Way People Are Getting Off Some Of Their Medications?
The Day I Started Questioning My Medical Training
I must confess that when I watched the Forks Over Knives (FOK) documentary a few years ago, I desperately wanted the doctors in the movie to be complete veggie-loving quacks. Why? Because if what they said was true, then the entire way I (and just about every doctor I knew) had been practicing medicine for nearly 18 years was just flat-out wrong. Could it be that all the pills and procedures I had prescribed were nearly worthless compared to all the good that a whole-food, plant-based (WFPB) diet could do?
I might have continued to practice medicine as I had always done if the following question hadn’t stuck in my mind: “Am I harming my patients by encouraging them to eat low-fat dairy foods?” I had to know.
I set out on a mission to learn everything I could about the lifestyle and came to the conclusion that these FOK docs were legitimate. They were highly respected, well-educated physicians and researchers with a mountain of evidence to back their claim that the standard American diet was the overriding cause of most of America’s degenerative diseases and that a WFPB diet was the way to prevent, treat, and even reverse them.
Then I got really mad: Why had I not been told this before? Why had I been trained to practice medicine in a way that neglected the cause of disease? What about the most powerful intervention for prevention and treatment available—our food!
I adopted the diet myself, and any lingering doubt quickly disappeared … along with my prediabetes, acid reflux, chronic constipation, hypothyroidism, and depression. To top it off, I lost an extra 25 pounds I had been carrying and had more energy than I had, well, ever! When my patients came in for their appointments, many saw how much healthier I looked and asked me what I was doing.
