Why Doctors Need to Talk About Plant-Based Diets

Why Doctors Need to Talk About Plant-Based Diets | Healthy Eating News | Scoop.it
Many doctors struggle to talk about nutrition with their patients. But there is something we can do to fix it.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, March 9, 7:41 PM

Did you know that consuming plant based real whole foods is evidence based and has a measurable impact on your risk for disease? Your body is dependent on having fiber to move food through your colon. Fiber helps eliminate some toxins as well.

 

As as been stated over and over again, animal based foods have no fiber and neither does much of the packaged, boxed processed food in the marketplace. High quality fiber only comes from plant foods. And no, ketchup does not qualify.

 

However cholesterol is abundant in animal based food and not in plant foods. Your body makes its own cholesterol as well and therefore doesn’t need any additional. 

 

Plant based regimens have been shown to lower cholesterol just as effectively as first-line statin drugs, but without the side effects. Statins side effects include the potential for liver or muscle damage according to Dr Michael Greger. 

 

Dr Greger goes on to say that biopsies show that people on statins show evidence of muscle damage even if their blood work is normal and they exhibit no symptoms of muscle weakness or soreness. Other studies reveal that statins have the potential for brain related side effects, such as memory loss and confusion. 

 

Statin drugs also “appear to increase risk of developing diabetes”. A different “study in 2013 of several thousand  breast cancer patients reported that long term use of statins may double a woman’s risk of invasive breast cancer”. Benefits vs side effects from plant based consumption “

is less cancer and diabetes risk, and protection of your liver and brain”.

 

Health Tips:  Heart disease is reversible on plant based programs. Doesn’t it make sense to start your prevention early in life? Chronic diseases for the most part show up decades later. 

 

Yes you can pop a pill, take a specialized drug, but you can also make a commitment to consume a plant based real whole food lifestyle.

 

Your body will heal itself if you give it the plant nutrients it needs. Consume 2-3 cups of sprouted and other greens and sea and land veggies every day. Add a 1/2 cup of legumes (lentils, peas, beans) with each meal. Opt for organic as much as possible to reduce pesticides and GmOs.

 

Add in whole ancient grains and some ripe fruit.  Remember to keep drinking half your weight in filtered water throughout your day. And keep doing your weight lifting, aerobics and walking daily.

Did you know that red cabbage is a powerhouse cruciferous veggie which is a rich source of fiber, helping your digestion, high in vitamins A, C, and K, and is a potent source of flavonoids do to its red pigment? This color pigment is what differentiates red cabbage from the other crucifers.

 

Plant foods are anti-inflammatory, but some like those with deep color pigmentation have more antioxidants which squash free radicals which cause oxidative stress in your body. A buildup of oxidative stress eventually causes inflammation which leads to disease states.

 

Health tips:  Eat a rainbow of plant foods each day which will ensure you’re getting a varied regimen of different plant nutrients in greens/veggies, and some ripe fruit. Specialty health products that focus on one main plant food are incomplete and unbalanced.

Did you know there are different greens, veggies, and fruits for each season? Eating seasonally connects you on a deeper level to the food you consume. Choosing to buy seasonal produce reduces the travel time for these foods. 

 

Certain foods give your body what it needs at each season. Abiding by the natural rhythms of planet Earth comes springtime, the renewal of life heralding youthfulness. Wild greens, leeks, spring peas, beckon you to new tastes and seasonal delights.

 

Health Tips:  Asparagus is a rich source of glutathione, the master antioxidant. It is rich in B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, and iron.

 

Glutathione helps detox toxins from your body. Add a small  amount of water to a pan and cook small thin asparagus stalks for a few minutes, crunchy and so sweet.

 

Spring red cabbage can be used as an open wrap filled with quinoa, amaranth, or even millet, sprinkle with a spicy seasoning or use za’atar.

 

Add some fresh sprouted pea shoots and some white beans, olives, some lemon zest, a zippy dressing of your choice and you’ve got the makings of a perfectly lovely spring luncheon dish.

 

Turnips can help reduce mucus, ease lung congestion, and relieve sore throats. They are a good source of vitamin C, helping your immune system. You can slice very thin and eat raw or steam, bake, pickle these peppery earthy delights.

 

Dandelion greens are one of the most nutritious greens growing in your yard. Dandelions help fight cancer, boost your immune system, keep you young, build bones, teeth, and blood, and protect your heart from atherosclerosis. 

 

These greens are rich sources of beta-carotene, chlorophyll, calcium, iron, and magnesium. Harvest before they flower from your yard. Eat raw or steam lightly.

Did you know that not only does sugar consumption lead to inflammation and later chronic diseases , but sugar ages you in well defined ways? Sugar makes you age faster and more visibly and shortens your lifespan.

 

If you’re still undecided about reducing and eliminating your sugar habit, this article might just change your mind. Either way remember excessive consumption of sugar, eating it everyday all year round becomes addictive. 

 

Health Tips:  You can still have your desserts and eat them too. Here’s a few faves:  sweet potato black bean brownies, raw peanut butter cookies, raw chocolate fudge, fruit snack bars, energy balls.

 

Use real wholesome plant food with spices, organic liquid Stevia and/or fresh fruit pieces to create delicious treats for your family.
