Necessity is the Mother of Invention 
 
These are unpredictable times in which we live, sometimes forcing us to try new things we never would have considered under normal circumstances.   
 
Some of us may be eating a bit differently and with greater concern for our health now that our dining patterns have changed
due to social distancing requirements.
 
And others (meaning me) are finding that technology may be the best
way for us to communicate when we can’t predictably
meet together in groups anymore. 
 
When you combine those two things together,  this may be the perfect opportunity for you to emerge from this difficult time stronger and healthier than you’ve ever been before!  
 
I’ve been a cardiac RN for over 25 years and we reversed my husband’s pre-diabetes with a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet (WFPBD).  We also both lost 20 pounds without even trying.  After seeing Paul’s amazing health transformation, I went on to get my certification in Plant-Based Nutrition from the
T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies through Cornell University. 
After spending almost two decades directing programs that manage chronic disease, now I want to empower people to drastically improve and frequently reverse their chronic illnesses with this life-changing knowledge! 
 
In addition to Type 2 Diabetes, a WFPBD has been shown to greatly improve and frequently reverse many other chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, erectile dysfunction, gastric reflux, arthritis, enlarged prostate, and many more.
 
 Arkansas is a “chronic illness hot-spot” and in 2017 was first in the nation for death rates from chronic respiratory diseases.  We know those that suffer from chronic disease have weakened immune systems and suffer more persistent inflammation. Arkansas’s State Chronic Disease Director, Dr. Appathurai Balamurugan has cautioned those with chronic disease to “be vigilant” about their conditions during this unprecedented global pandemic danger.
 
A WFPBD is rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients which strengthen the immune system and fight inflammation, two processes important in boosting defenses against infection.   And if there was ever a time to quickly improve an underlying chronic illness so that you can stay out of the hospital,
that time is now.   
 
We know that we can plummet diabetic’s average blood sugars and insulin requirements in as little as 16 days on a Plant-Based Diet.
Anderson JW, Ward K., Am J Clin Nutr. 1979 Nov;32(11):2312-21.
 
Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn demonstrated that patients with a baseline cholesterol averaging 261 could drop to an average of 126 within 10-14 days of starting a strict WFPB diet. Within 6 weeks, these patients’ perfusion scan (non-invasive way to assess blood flow to the heart) was normal as well.

Some People Say Beans And Grains Didn’t Exist 10,000 Years Ago And This Means We Should Eat Animal Products? LDL Cholesterol Levels? Kim Allan Williams, MD

Lifestyle and Medicine for Blood Pressure: What Everyone Needs to Know About the New Guidelines

The convergence of evidence suggests that an affordable plant-based diet can help prevent and even reverse some of the top killer diseases in the Western world, and can be even more effective than medication and surgery. This could save Medicare billions of dollars, but medical training continues to underemphasize nutrition education , in part, perhaps, because lifestyle interventions go against the prevailing conventional wisdom. The USDA, in formulating its dietary guidelines, has been accused of both acting with bias and ignoring relevant research. However, the most recent guidelines take a step in the right direction by recommending a shift to a plant-based diet, which Kaiser Permanente, the largest U.S. managed care organization, has moved in the direction of supporting. Lifestyle medicine attempts to find, prevent, and treat the causes of disease. Patients should receive fully informed consent for treatment, meaning they should be informed about all of their options including dietary changes. Doctors report they don’t practice preventative cardiology because they fear their patients won’t change their diet.

Kim Allan Williams, MD, MACC, FAHA, MASNC, FESC was born in Chicago, and attended the College of The University of Chicago (1971 to 1975), followed by the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine (1975 to 1979), internal medicine residency at Emory University (1979 to 1982), and overlapping fellowships in Cardiology at the University of Chicago (1982 to 1985), Clinical Pharmacology (1984 to 1985), and Nuclear Medicine (1984 to 1986). He is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases, Nuclear Medicine, Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiovascular Computed Tomography.

Dr. Williams joined the faculty of the University of Chicago in 1986, specializing in clinical cardiology, nuclear medicine, and nuclear cardiology. He served as Professor of Medicine and Radiology and Director of Nuclear Cardiology at The University of Chicago School of Medicine until 2010. Among numerous awards and honors for his teaching in the medical school, residencies and fellowships, he was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha in 2008.

In 2010, he became the Dorothy Susan Timmis Endowed Professor of Medicine and Radiology and Chairman of the Division of Cardiology at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, MI. At Wayne State, he has started the Urban Cardiology Initiative – a program of education of physicians on disparities in healthcare, primary school education on cardiovascular health and community health screening in inner-city Detroit. In November 2013 he returned to Chicago as the James B. Herrick Endowed Professor of Medicine and Cardiology at Rush University Medical Center.

Dr. Williams has published numerous peer-reviewed articles, monographs, book chapters, editorials, and review articles in the field of nuclear cardiology and minority health issues, with emphasis on education and innovations in perfusion imaging and quantitation of ventricular function. His research interests include selective adenosine receptor agonists, fluorinated perfusion PET imaging, cardiac computed tomography for plaque characterization, health care disparities and payment policy, and appropriate use of cardiac imaging.

Dr. Williams has served on numerous committees and boards at the national level, including the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), the American Heart Association (AHA), the American Medical Association (AMA), the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the Certifying Board of Nuclear Cardiology, the Certifying Board of Cardiac Computed Tomography, the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography and the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC). He served as President of ASNC from 2004 to 2005. He served as Chairman of the Board of ABC from 2008 to 2010. He also served on the Cardiovascular Disease Examination Board of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM-CV) until 2012. He served as the president of the ACC from 2015 to 2016.

What About The Claims About Reduced Disease Risk From Paleo Diets? Are They True? by Brenda Davis, R.D.

Brenda Davis offers fresh insights on the treatment of animals in food production and other industries, the latest findings on the health benefits of a vegan diet and expanded the information on phytochemicals, Brenda’s information is extensive in scope, yet manageable for anyone who wants to easily understand how to construct a nutritionally balanced plant-based diet.

Here are the latest findings on: using plant foods to protect against cancer, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses; obtaining essential protein without meat, eggs, or dairy products; discovering “good” fats and where to find them; meeting dietary needs for calcium without dairy products; understanding the importance of vitamin B12; designing balanced vegan diets for infants, children, and seniors; and making the most of vegan pregnancy and breastfeeding.

This is a sound blueprint to follow for better health for yourself and the planet.

Mammographies, Breast Cancer, Ductal Carcinoma with Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D., N.D.

Nearly half of Americans take at least one prescription medicine, with almost a quarter taking three or more, as diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and dementia grow more prevalent than ever. The problem with medicating common ailments, such as high blood pressure or elevated cholesterol, is that drugs treat symptoms—and may even improve test results—without addressing the cause: diet.
