the TrueNorth Health Education Center located in California, USA.
is also the author of 『Vegan Nutrition: Pure and Simple』 a book which
explains how to transition to a plant-based diet and has tasty recipes.Dr Klaper (m):
My real passion is
keeping people healthy enough to stay out of hospitals and off our
operating tables. So in the last ２０ years or so my focus has really been
on nutrition and lifestyle medicine. That’s my real love of life.
Dr. Klaper is a strong advocate of the vegan diet for treating health
conditions and maintaining one’s well-being. In the １９８０s, he realized
that many chronic diseases are caused by the high-fat and overly
processed foods of the standard American diet or SAD.
became a vegan and implemented nutritionally-based therapies in his
practice. With Dr. Klaper’s help, many of his patients have regained
their health and become more energetic by following a plant-based
lifestyle. Dr. Klaper (m):
own evolution to a vegan diet and lifestyle and vegan brand of medicine
was a kind of convergence of a number of courses that happened to me in
the early １９８０’s. I was practicing medicine in Vancouver (Canada).
was doing a residency in anesthesiology and day after day I was
watching surgeons open up people's chests and open up their hearts and
pull out these gobs of fatty, waxy material and I realized that this is
largely the fat of the animals these people are eating.
dad died of clogged arteries; I knew I was at risk for this. One day I
was going to be laying on that table with that Stryker saw going up my
chest and I said, "Hmm. I don't think I want to do that." These people
are very uncomfortable when they wake up so already I realized that an
animal-based diet was not a healthful thing no matter what I had learned
in school and our farm growing up.
