Gemma Newman, MD: Plant Power Doctor, Part 2 of 2

If you look at the top 15 causes of death, a plant-based diet can help to either improve, arrest or even - in some case - reverse 14 of the top 15 causes of death. Now, the only cause of death that it doesn't have any influence over is an accidental death, like a car crash. So the plant-based diet is really great for health, but not a lot of medical institutions promote it. My hope is that in the years to come, with the increased knowledge that we have, that more and more medical professionals will start to include the plant-based diet within their recommendations.

In addition to considering the results gathered from the four diagnostic methods of TCM, that of visual inspection, listening and smelling, verbal inquiry and physical palpation, when assessing a patient’s condition, a traditional Chinese medical doctor will use the Eight Principles of TCM to further investigate and discover the cause of a disease. The “Eight Principles” refer to “yin and yang,” “exterior and interior,” “cold and heat,” and “deficiency and excess.” However, Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners believe that the vegetarian diet is good for health, because in the “Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic,” a lot of emphasis is placed on meat-eating being a potential cause of various kinds of diseases.

Gastroenterologist Dr. Fredric Weiss on Plant-Strong Eating, Part 1 of 2

I have recently become acquainted with the importance of diet in treating the diseases that I treat. And so if we can somehow stem that by changing our diets and our exercise patterns, it will save us a lot of livers for patients who have congenital diseases or diseases that were certainly nothing to do with their diets or their lifestyle. Dairy, in particular, is a major cause of gas, belching, reflux, and abdominal pain. So, I think the dairy elimination can start to do wonders for patients who have upper gastrointestinal illnesses. Plant-based diets are hugely filled with fiber and nutrients that encourage water excretion by the colon.

Ayurveda: The Science of Life

Ayurveda: The Science of Life

Ayurveda originated in India more than 5,000 years ago, and is one of the oldest medical systems in our world. In Sanskrit, the word “Ayurveda” has two components, “ayur” meaning longevity and “veda” meaning science. In the beginning, this method was passed down through the generations by Indian physicians and sages through oral teaching. Later, this precious healing knowledge was recorded in books. The three key ancient texts that document Ayurvedic medicine practices are famously known as the “Great Trilogy,” namely the “Charaka Samhita,” “Sushruta Samhita” and “Astanga Hridaya.”

The diagnostic procedures are used to observe the signs and symptoms of an illness, while the principles are employed to summarize and analyze the observations to help the doctor find out the cause of the disease.

I think that with a good natural approach, a nutritional approach, we can lower this number and help people who already have arthritis. One of the best things we can do for hip or knee arthritis is to lose a little bit of weight. The best approach to arthritis is to make sure you’re getting your mega-3s, the plant-based omega-3s. So, get enough flax seeds ground up and enough walnuts in your diet.

There are several principles for a healthy vegan diet. The first one is to eat whole foods. Some foods are advertised as vegan but they may be heavily processed. For example, sugary drinks and some vegan snacks may be vegan, but they are not healthy. So, on a regular basis, we encourage everyone to eat more whole grains, fresh vegetables, and fruit, nuts, seeds, and the like. In general, we should eat real food instead of those processed products. The second principle is to pay attention to several nutrients that vegans need. It is necessary to be exposed to the Sun for 10 to 15 minutes a day.

Dr. Chiu explains. The hospital’s meal system has several major therapeutic dietary plans - for example, meals for diabetes, meals for kidney disease, and high and low-protein meals. The hospital has several established meals, which means doctors can choose the meal that is best for each patient. Plant proteins are actually very good. Aside from their protein content, plants also provide a lot of antioxidants and anti-cancer phytochemicals that meat does not have.

A team of scientists from Harvard University’s School of Public Health in the US completed a meta-study in October 2016 using data from 131342 participants who were tracked for more than 26 years in two separate medical studies to determine how diet relates to wellness and longevity. As reported in the “Journal of the American Medical Association,” the researchers concluded that replacing animal protein with plant protein was associated with a decreased risk of death. The most important factor in maintaining health and vitality has got to be what we put inside our bodies, and luckily that’s also what we’ve got the most control over.

Blood Circulation and Long Travels

00:16:19

Blood Circulation and Long Travels

The human body is about 60% water. Around 2/3 of body water is intracellular fluid, and 1/3 of body water is extracellular. If we remain standing or sitting for an extended period, the leg muscles remain stationary and blood circulation in the veins will slow down. The blood flowing to the legs will not flow smoothly back to the heart. This increased pressure on the blood vessels may lead to excessive accumulation of extracellular fluid between the cells, resulting in edema, or swelling, in the calves,ankles and/or feet. Apart from long-distance travel, edema can also be caused by other conditions such as chronic heart failure, kidney diseases, arthritis, and hypothyroidism.

Cultivating Good Health: Lessons from China’s Dragon Boat Festival

During the Dragon Boat season, it is traditionally a time in China to develop balance and harmony between the mind, body, and nature to build up disease resistance to ensure wellness over summer. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theories, we must refrain from doing three things to maintain good health when the yang energy is at its peak. First, we must abstain from raw and cold foods in the evening, as they are hard to digest. Second, we should not take cold water baths. Our sweat glands and skin pores are open in the hot summer months. Taking a cold shower will make our body vulnerable to cold air, leading to an imperceptible loss of our yang energy. Third, we should not sleep exposed to the cold air at night.

The Autonomic Nervous System: Key to Our Body’s Self-Healing Ability, Part 1 of 2

Do you often have difficulty falling asleep? Do you wake up feeling unrested? Have you experienced persistent in digestion and poor appetite? Are rapid mood swings part of your daily life? Do you have cold hands and feet, or catch frequent colds? These conditions could be warning signals from the autonomic nervous system about a compromised health status. There are two main reasons. Firstly, our diet is far from natural; and secondly, overwhelming stresses in life. But aside from clinical methods, we can also help regulate our autonomic nerves by upgrading to a plant-based diet.
