President Clinton’s Heart Disease Reversal through Dietary Lifestyle Shift is Proof Positive for North American Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference
In this month’s AARP Magazine, former President Bill Clinton explains the benefits, including heart disease reversal, he’s realized from shifting from the Standard American Diet to a whole food, plant-based diet. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., MD, one of the two physicians whom Clinton credits with his remarkable health transformation, will present at the inaugural North American Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference, October 24-26, 2013.
Naples, Florida (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
Known for many years as America’s fast food connoisseur, what better spokesperson could a dietary movement have than Bill Clinton? Confronted with chronic disease that led to reliance on pharmaceuticals and cardiac procedures, quadruple-bypass included, the former president is now 30 pounds lighter and into his third year of enthusiastically embracing a whole food, plant-based lifestyle.
Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., MD and The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas Campbell, II, MD were two of the three books that President Clinton credits with propelling his newfound dietary lifestyle. Drs. Esselstyn and Campbell will both be presenting at the inaugural North American Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference, October 24-26, 2013 in Naples, Florida.
In the AARP Magazine article, Clinton cites his motivation not only being his personal health but also his desire to live to see his grandchildren. “You have a responsibility to try and be as healthy as possible.” Clinton also has grave concerns about the diet-related diseases among his fellow Americans and associated healthcare costs, as well as the impact of our food choices on global sustainability. “I decided to pick the diet that I thought would maximize my chances of long-term survival,” said Clinton, adding, “You have to make a conscious decision to change for your own well-being, and that of your family and your country.”
“President Clinton is an outstanding example of how chronic disease can be reversed through the power of nutritional medicine,” said North American Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference Co-founder Scott Stoll, MD. “Now we need physicians across our country to fully understand the compelling nutritional science that supports the efficacy of whole food, plant-based nutrition.”
“Anyone who has ever heard me speak has heard me say that heart disease is a toothless paper tiger that need never exist; and, if it does exist, it need never progress,” said Dr. Esselstyn. “It’s exciting when you treat causation of disease: it’s prompt, powerful and persistent. The power of this option needs to be clearly communicated to patients.”
