Phytochemicals In Raw Plant-Based Foods – We’ve Never Discovered Something More Impressive On Preventing And Reversing Disease by Brian Clement, Hippocrates Institute

Did you know that what you eat could be making you sick? It’s true. Some foods such as poultry, beef, and dairy clog your body with energy-depleting fats, toxins, and chemicals. Where can you find the optimum nourishment your body needs to stay strong, healthy, and vigorous? For millions of people, the answer is in the health and healing properties of living foods—foods that are eaten raw and produced without dangerous, nutrient-robbing chemicals or additives.

For more than forty years, Brian Clement has been teaching people how to cleanse and heal their bodies with naturally potent living foods. Brian explains why living foods are vital to good health.

Plant Based Info Learned from Podcasts

Reminder: Dr. Maryelle Vonlanthen, pediatric gastroenterologist, returns with an excellent presentation of information she learned during her many hours on the road in recent months. “As you know I love to listen to podcasts and this will summarize some exciting and interesting information I learned as I was crisscrossing the country!” I was fortunate to be present a couple of months ago as she shared some of this, and have no doubt you will find it to be an enriching experience. Here is a link to the handout she gave us from a presentation by the Drs. Sherzai, authors of The Alzheimer’s Solution – another game-changer if you haven’t already read it!

How Not to Die from Diabetes | NutritionFacts.org – Dr. Michael Greger

We’ve known since the 1930s that type 2 diabetes can be prevented, arrested, and even reversed with a plant-based diet. Within five years of following the diet, about a quarter of the diabetic patients in that early study were able to get off insulin altogether.

Plant-based diets are relatively low in calories, though. Is it possible their diabetes just got better because they lost so much weight? To tease that out, we need a study where people are switched to a healthy diet but forced to eat so much food they don’t lose any weight. Then we could see if plant-based diets have specific benefits beyond all the easy weight loss. We had to wait 44 years for such a study, which I then discuss it in my video How Not to Die from Diabetes.

Subjects were weighed every day. If they started losing weight, they were made to eat more food—so much more food in fact that some of the participants had problems eating it all. They eventually adapted, though, so there was no significant weight change despite restricting meat, eggs, dairy, and junk.

Without any weight loss, did a plant-based diet still help? Overall insulin requirements were cut about 60 percent, and half the diabetics were able to get off their insulin altogether. How many years did that take? Not years. An average of 16 days. Only 16 days.
