WHAT ARE CONSCIOUS MEDICAL DOCTORS SAYING ABOUT EATING A WHOLE FOOD PLANT-BASED DIET

Mar 16, 2020

I say consciously because there is hardly any awareness in the medical field, or outside of it, that eating a whole food plant-based (WFPB) diet can significantly boost people’s health, help prevent illnesses and disease and help improve people’s overall state of mind.

Medical doctors are not getting educated about the extraordinary health effects when people start eating a WFPB diet. Doctors lack essential education, our Governments, NGOs like the World Health Organisation and United Nations, and the public are grossly misinformed and misguided.

It is time for today´s journalists to start telling the truth what happens when people start to eat WFPB diet.

It is time that people hear from doctors, professors, scientists, nutritionists, dieticians, health researchers, universities, the World- Health Organization (WHO), Governments, NGOs and world-renowned scientific journals /publication houses that eating a balanced Whole Food Plant-Based (WFPB) diet is the most healthy choice!

Did you know that our DNA, with gorillas trailing at 98% and all they eat is WFPB?

People must know that their bodies and brains are getting the proper nutrients from a WFPB diet. When eating a WFPB diet, people will experience greater health, assist the body in dealing with trauma, and boost healing and rejuvenate the body. People will wake up fresher, their minds will be clearer, they will have more energy, and they will feel greater mobility, lighter, and stronger.

The question might still rise will I get enough nutrients and protein, ask a Gorilla!

The answer is yes. Many peer-reviewed publications by doctors, professors, and researchers will confirm this fact. Millions of people, including myself, have been eating a WFPB diet and are all thriving.

The genie is out of the bottle, eating a balanced WFPB diet, naturally farmed, locally produced, in season and fresh is actually much healthier for you and boost people overall health and well-being

Have you heard of The China Study?

The China Study is a book by T. Colin Campbell, Jacob Gould Schurman, Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, and his son Thomas M. Campbell II, a physician. 

First published in the United States in January 2005, it’s sold over one million copies, making it one of America’s best-selling books about nutrition.

The China Study examines the relationship between the consumption of animal products (meat, dairy, eggs) and chronic illnesses such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and bowel cancer.

The authors of this comprehensive 30-year research study concluded that people who eat predominantly whole food, plant-based diet (avoiding animal products as the primary source of nutrition, including beef, pork, poultry, fish, eggs, cheese, and milk, and reducing their intake of processed foods and refined carbohydrates), will escape, reduce, or reverse the development of numerous diseases. 

They concluded that “eating foods that contain any cholesterol above 0 mg is unhealthy”.

There are many more examples of doctors, professors, physicians, and universities that have collaborated and reached very similar conclusions as The China Study.

Another example is Dr Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., who received his B.A. from Yale University and his M.D. from Western Reserve University in the USA. 

“Dr Esselstyn has been associated with the Cleveland Clinic since 1968. During that time, he has served as President of the Staff and as a member of the Board of Governors. In addition, he chaired the Clinic’s Breast Cancer Task Force and headed its Section on Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery. He is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology.

His scientific publications number over 150, “The Best Doctors in America” 1994-1995, published by Woodward and White, cites Dr Esselstyn’s surgical expertise in endocrine and breast disease categories. In 1995 he published his benchmark long-term nutritional research, “Arresting and reversing coronary artery disease in severely ill patients”. That same study has been updated twice and since published as a book called Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, making it one of the longest longitudinal studies of its type. In July 2014, he reported the experience of 198 participants who were seriously ill with cardiovascular disease. During 3.7 years of follow-up, of the 89% adherent to the program, 99.4% avoided further major cardiac events.

Dr. Esselstyn and his wife, Ann Crile Esselstyn, have followed a plant-based diet since 1984. He directs the cardiovascular prevention and reversal program at The Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute.

There is plenty of quaility information to find on eating only WFPB eating but the system we live in and live by does not want you to know. The system is about dependency and not setting your free.

I have discovered invaluable knowledge from my years of research and trialling different foods to pursue the perfect nutrition balance to nurture my body, mind and soul. I can confidently say that nobody on this earth can dictate the ideal foods for anybody to eat – that every person is unique.

However, in my quest, one thing became apparent: eating a WFPB diet, naturally farmed, in season, fresh and local, is, in my opinion, and that of many conscious M.D.s, by far the champion of foods to eat if you desire optimal health and experience a life of health. 

But I discovered something else that is imperative as to which foods to eat.

We all have an unconscious internal communication system that gives subtle and sometimes pronounced signals to act on. I describe it as our ‘innate wisdom’ that can guide our food choices and more. Reconnecting to this wisdom and learning to trust our senses is incredibly useful, and I value it immensely.

Over the years, I have become skilled at sensing and interpreting my unconscious yes and no signals. These signals guide us when we make food choices and other important decisions in our lives.  

After reading the outcomes of a variety of studyies why certain people (groups) experience extaordinary health including some of the oldest and healthiest living communities that are alive today, i.e. Bama (Nigeria), Nicoya (Costa Rica) or Hunza (Pakistan), it did not come to me as a surprise that these people all seem to thrive on WFPB foods.

These people eat fresh food from their gardens or eat what nature provides organically in their natural environment. For example, they eat organic WFPB foods that grow in the ground, on the ground or above the ground. If you were to ask these people how many calories, carbs, vitamins, proteins, or iron they ate, they probably would look at you quite amused.

Like Dr T. Colin Campbell and many of his acclaimed colleagues, they all thrive on eating WFPB. 

When you eat a wide variety of WFPBs, you engage your innate wisdom you are guaranteed to receive everything your body can metabolize and put to use, because your body is designed for WFPB foods just like a Gorilla is.

If this were not the case, then the longest and healthiest living communities today and millions of WFPB-eating people (including Dr T. Colin Campbell) would not thrive. 

And if you are still not sure if you where getting enough proteins from eating WFPB perhaps consider to arm wrestle a Gorilla or lock heads with a water buffalo!

But what is the difference between being a vegan and eating WFPB?

A fundamentally different mindset exists between a vegan diet and a WFPB diet. Generally speaking, people’s motivation for adopting a vegan diet and lifestyle is prompted by animal rights issues and the ethical treatment of animals. However, vegans often consume processed foods and, more often than not, can be pretty unhealthy because being healthy is not their main priority.

People who only eat a WFPB diet are health-conscious. They know eating WFPB will boost their energy levels and overall health. Processed food isn’t included in the WFPB lifestyle. In addition, most people who eat only WFPB also seem to have a deep spiritual connection with animals, themselves, and the world around them.

Are governments, Universities, scientists, doctors, professors, nutritionists, dieticians, and the media telling you the truth?

People are often confused about the intake of vitamins, proteins, minerals, vets, carbs, and calories when eating a WFPB diet, and I would say for good reasons. What needs to be pointed out is that the scientific industry (funded mostly by corporate companies) has created a reductionist approach to nutrition. They have you believe that their reductionist approach to health will serve you.

Have you ever seen, touched or tasted a vitamin, it sounds absurb doesn’t it?

When you eat a good variety of WFPB foods that are fresh, in-season and locally produced through natural farming principles, you no longer have to worry about this reductionist scientific way of thinking. You will get plenty of nutrients and fibre from what you eat in ‘whole form’. Your body will start to thrive, and you will feel more at peace and joyful!

Let’s have a look at the table below, just in case you still have concerns:

Besides eating WFPB foods, it is important to note that for anybody to experience optimal health, a balanced mind, and full elimination of trauma, hydrating yourself well and breathing correctly are essential to achieve health.

  1. A balanced mind (spiritually connected, free of trauma, joyful and confident)

  2. Hydration (structured water/fruit)

  3. Food (WFPB)

  4. Breathing (from the belly, not the chest)

  5. Fasting/detoxing

  6. Environment (nature)

  7. Minimise toxins (breath, water, food, optical, radiation)

  8. Exercise

This list of health experts comprehends that eating WFPB foods is key to anybody’s health. However, most scientists, researchers, doctors, nutritionists and dieticians have been educated by textbooks based on reductionist scientific reasoning and findings.

Based on reductionist science, the assumption is that the world operates in a linear way – that is, it operates on simple causality. What exactly does that mean? The classic conditions for proving that A causes B are threefold:

  1. A always presides over B.

  2. B always follows A.

  3. There is no C that could also cause B.

Therefore, it is time to distance ourselves from their reductionist approach to food and health and reclaim our health, confidence, and joyfulness by eating WFPB foods. Real food grows in the ground on and above the ground in ‘whole form’.

It’s time to be your own ‘Guru’!
