Hello and let’s get together! from Dr. Maryelle Vonlanthen

Dear Healthy Nuggetters:

I know the past month must have been trying for all. I had quite a moment recovering from the tailspin my medical practice was in due to Covid restrictions which affected not only my procedures but my referrals. So had to majorly adjust my expectations with the main goal to keep my employees safe and working for the foreseeable future.   

That being said, I miss you guys. So now is time to reactivate our meetings using an electronic platform!  

I have been doing Zoom consultations for my patients to keep them home and also my friends and family and I have been doing virtual coffee, virtual dinners together and so on.  Although not as touchy feely as when meeting  in person, these options are keeping our spirit up and all of us connected.   

So here is the plan: 

Let’s get together next Friday from 6 to 8 pm 

This will be a zoom meeting 

Please RSVP by Friday morning so I can Email you the meeting number and password. My email address is healthynuggetlr@gmail.com.

No charge for this meeting (donations accepted LOL) 

This will be an informal meeting and we can talk about anything. I am trying to keep well informed about COVID 19 and I can share what I know or we can talk about other things.  

I see possible classes on line : like bring you guys in my kitchen when I fix dinner or cover topics with slides and so on. But I would like to ask you guys what you would like best. 

The Most Important Thing is that we stay connected during this social distancing. So I want to keep our community going.  We will discuss future dates at next Friday’s meeting. 

I hope you guys are eating healthy!  produce is plentiful !  and the produce section is rarely packed with people 

Happy eating and love and hugs 

Maryelle

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.

Drugs Vs. Food For Autoimmune – Brooke Goldner, M.D.

Question from recent Q&A – “Isn’t it bad to strengthen your immune system when you have autoimmune disease? I thought that was why we have to take immunosuppressant medication.” Medications can suppress your immune system – which can be life-saving when you are severely ill from autoimmune disease, but also leaves you susceptable to infections. The #GoodbyeLupusProtocol uses nutrition to suppress the inflammatory immune response and strengthen the anti-inflammatory immune response, so you can get your health back and not need those medicines any longer. Caution: Please do not change, taper or stop medications without consulting your prescribing doctor, this can be dangerous for your health. Work on getting healthy so you don’t need them anymore and let your doctor taper you when you are ready!

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.
