Joel Fuhrman: The Doctor Is Out There

Nutritarianism is part of a growing school of research-based dietary thinking that insists that, in terms of wellness, you really are what you eat. Call it plant-based libertarianism. The U.S. has the world's highest healthcare costs – $2.7 trillion in 2011 – while consistently scoring lowest among developed nations for quality of care. Practitioners of plant-based libertarianism believe that every person needs to take full responsibility for his or her own health. This means adopting a wellness-focused diet, mostly vegan.

Thank you greatly for that link. a close family member who is 17 has been diagnosed with MS,and it doesn't run in our family

Let it ever not be said,that I never did not do nothing for you.

Sure thing. Dr. Wahls and

Sure thing. Dr. Wahls and the GAPS diet as well are great sources for diet for MS.

reversing MS

For MS I would also add coconut oil.

But if you're serious about reversing it, then google - andy cutler chelation. This is the only way to truly get rid of mercury, lead and other metals that are a big part of the cause. You can do this on your own without a doctor. The only cost is DMSA and ALA which are inexpensive.

The other therapy that will be part of reversing it is ozone therapy. Google - ozone therapy doctors.

for the leads,I am familiar with the ozone genny,tried to build one,but failed,but it wasn't for the MS.I had a thought along the way,a tazer might work in creating ozone.It is dc,mine has 50 thousand volts,and can be wired to run without contacting itself(so,it can't short out)
Looking into the 2nd paragraph in a bit
I really do appreciate your response,and I thank you from the bottom of my heart

Interrupt any time,and thank you,my summer.... hmmmm.every year i say the same thing,next yr,I won't be so busy,i can lounge around,go swimming with the family,but every year,I get more to do,more things to save,and more canning to get done.We took our first vacation in almost 25 years,had it cut short(spent more time on the road than relaxing)11 hours there,11 back,all within 4 days,by my above comments,you might be able to guess what happened
So now,it is all dr's and trying to find what works to stay away from them.
It does appear i might have to run a protectionist racket against Paul to pay peter(otherwise known as 'BILL')
Again,thank you,you truly are a blessing

Let it ever not be said,that I never did not do nothing for you.

You're welcome.

In medical ozone therapy, the ozone is created from an oxygen tank, not from air. When you electrocute air you get ozone, but you also get oxidized nitrogen which is not good.

Here are some ways of getting ozone into the body that you can do at home. http://www.youtube.com/user/promolife

The only other method which you need a doctor for is for IV ozone.

Vegan Texas Mayor

HOUSTON—The mayor of a town in East Texas says he wants citizens to get control of their health by eating vegan.

Mayor Ed Smith of Marshall, Texas, began eating a plant-based, whole foods diet six years ago.

He says since then his prostate cancer disappeared and he lost 40 pounds so he is now urging residents in the town to change their eating habits too.



That mayor had better be careful.

The people of that town may have a big ol' craw-fish/boudin/mayor boil and be looking for a new mayor the next day.

That mayor...

i don't know if you watched the clip but that mayor seems to have a segment of the town behind him. already three different restaurants now offer a vegan menu. this is a GOOD guy, who inspires, who empowers. the opposite would be mayor bloomberg who passes a law against what you can drink. that is control, EVIL.

As far as tooth health is concerned,

the Paleos may well have it right!

Accurate comment from your link.

"Hailey White
Hmmm, did we read the same Weston Price book? I'm guessing you are referring to Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. I just read it and I cannot agree with what your angle is. Of all the people he studied, the eskimos had the most nutrition (remember he meticulously took back regular samples of their foods to analyze for nutritional breakdown in the lab) and had the least amount of caries, degenerative disease and most vigorous health of all of them. If I remember correctly (don't have the book in hand to look up the actual wording) Price wrote that none of the populations studied (remember they were chosen as the healthiest peoples on the earth) had a purely vegetarian diet. I am in no way some pro meat nut, in fact, I used to be vegan and pescetarian and personally had serious energy issues, with lethargy and dizziness. Now that I make my own broths and seek out the highest good, organic fat foods I can, (along with continuing my veggie juice and salads) I have a much more vigorous store of energy. Whatever works for your body. But wow. Can't get over that it seems like we are talking about 2 different Weston Prices!"

I have to agree. I read the book and do not recall any pure lacto-vegetarians. And lets face it, pesco-vegans are people who get their meat from the sea.

there's the man

price who the author respects, and then the foundation where he has his gripes, and i've heard others who support the man, but not the foundation (or rather what it has become). one look at salley fallon tells the story well.

I understand that the

I understand that the author appreciates Price's work but not the foundation. My point is that I agree with that comment that the author seems to have read a different book from the one that we read.

And yes, Fallon looks a mess. Proof that you can't eat high carb, high fat and high protein all at the same time, even if the grains are organic and sprouted, the dairy fermented, the butter, cheese and meat are from grass fed animals etc.

never trust a vegetarian.

James Madison


you missed the part where he allows some meat/fish/eggs as long as the majority of your intake is whole foods. that's okay i'm used to knee jerk reactions when it comes to eating healthy.

personally i listen to them all: paleos, vegans, nutritarians etc and get what i can for my own health plan. but, hey, you don't trust someone because of their food choices? libertarian thinking not.
