Sunday night I took my family to watch the screening of a brand new documentary called Eating You Alive. The focus of this whole film is the benefits of a whole foods plant based diet (WFPBD). This film is phenomenally made! We were able to meet the producer and directors of the movie as well as one of the Dr.’s featured and a patient from the movie. The whole experience was amazing and it has me fired up even more to get the word out on a WFPBD! The documentary features interviews with numerous doctors, surgeons, and patients that have used and benefited from a WFPBD. It even showcases a few chefs that demonstrate how easy and yummy it is to eat this way. This film has all the WFPBD “all-stars” like Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. Michael Gregor, Dr. Fuhrman, as well as famous people like Samuel L. Jackson, James Cameron, and athletes. The patients in the film have healed themselves from lupus, cancer, obesity, and heart disease all the while shocking their skeptical doctors (some of which had given their patients a death sentence). The stories in this movie are real and are very powerful.
The science proving the benefits of a WFPBD is here, and there is a ton of it. These patient cases are not extraordinary, this happens regularly when people follow a WFPBD. The problem lies in the power and money held in the pharmaceutical and animal agriculture businesses, as well as the government subsidizes on meat and dairy. This all leads to misinformation to the public, and doctors don’t even get educated on nutrition in medical school, yet patients look to them for nutritional advice. It’s the perfect storm.
My hope is that through awareness, this documentary is able to touch many peoples’ lives. This is truly a grassroots movement to bring about change in this country. WFPBD alone would solve the healthcare crisis we are currently experiencing. I feel honored to be able to have a part in this movement and hope to be able to help change many peoples’ lives for the better. Good health is something most people take for granted until we don’t have it. Giving people the knowledge and tools to be able to learn the vast benefits of a WFBPD and then incorporate it into their daily lives is my dream and passion. I believe that if people just “knew” what information is out there, they wouldn’t hesitate to want to begin making changes to their diet.
If you are reading this and you don’t want chronic disease and medications to dominate your future, then know that you have the power to take control and change your destiny. There are so many things in life that you can’t control; what you eat isn’t one of them! I would absolutely love to have the opportunity to help you or a loved one down this path. Changing one’s diet can often feel scary and overwhelming and if that is the case for you then I hope you will explore the options on my services page here on my website.
