To call his presentation profoundly informative would be an understatement. Dr. Williams began with a plea to each of us to take the information he shares directly to our own healthcare providers. As he points out, “the leading cause of death among physicians, including cardiologists, is heart disease.” Even though there is considerable evidence in the scientific literature, physicians learn almost nothing about using nutrition to prevent or reverse illness in their medical training.

I grew up in a typical Latter-day Saint family in Orem, Utah. We ate the standard American diet. We always had a garden and fruit trees, but we ate a fair amount of meat, cheese, and other dairy products, and our vegetables were always covered in butter or cream. I was always thin until I got married when I soon began having problems keeping a healthy weight.

I also experienced frequent migraines, sugar addiction, and food cravings.

At age 12 Carol developed epilepsy. To treat her condition, she was prescribed a cocktail of medications to prevent petit mal seizures. She still experienced seizures and had to be continuously monitored. Over time, she was prescribed different medications to better control her condition. After graduating from college, she married a man from Iowa who was strictly a meat and potatoes guy. Carol ate the Standard American Diet (SAD) though she liked chicken and fish more than meat. When she turned 35, she had difficulties with excessive bleeding during her menstrual cycle. Her OB-GYN doctor found the blood loss left her deficient in iron and accordingly advised her to eat more red meat. Thinking the doctor knew best, she followed his advice.
