America's health has never been as bad as it is right now. We are touted as one of the "richest" countries, but, our health care system has never been as "broken" as it is today. Chronic diseases such as diabetes, (which is now an epidemic), heart disease, (our #1 Killer), cancers, hypertension, stroke, lung disease--the list goes on--have become "accepted" by our society. Chronic disease is not part of the normal aging process, but that's what we have come to expect. Aging has nothing to do with it, we have 9 year olds with Type 2 diabetes--by the way, the name had to be changed from Adult Onset Diabetes, (this disease started later in life), to Type 2 diabetes because our children had this disease.
Science has repeatedly shown us that the foods we put in our mouth can either strengthen our immune systems and keep our body strong, OR weaken our immune system allowing for disease to take over.
A Whole Food Plant Based diet is the ONLY DIET that has been proven to PREVENT disease from starting, STOP disease from progressing, and in most cases, REVERSE disease that may have already started. This is the ONLY DIET that can REVERSE heart disease as proven by Dr. Dean Ornish, (his practice is in California)--Dr. Ornish has a Lifestyle program teaching people how to eat a Whole Food Plant Based diet that Medicare and other insurances are now PAYING FOR!!
What?? Insurance companies are PAYING for people to go through this DIET PROGRAM?? The answer is YES because this way of eating has been scientifically PROVEN to REVERSE HEART DISEASE!!
Of course insurance companies will pay for a program such as this--eating this way enables patients to eliminate blood pressure medications, heart medications, diabetic medications, cholesterol lowering medications, etc. Healthy people do not need pills or procedures--they do not COST the insurance company money.
Kaiser Permanente is the nation's largest managed health care system--because the evidence has repeatedly proven the effects of a Whole Food Plant Based diet, they are asking for all their physicians to become educated in eating this way so they can educate their patients. Eating this way will absolutely reduce/eliminate medications, reduce/eliminate the need for procedures, etc.--which will save money for the insurance company, but the BEST news is, patients will have their HEALTH back--not to mention, patients will experience WEIGHT LOSS!!
