Today, more and more Americans are learning the power of a Whole Food Plant Centric (if not exclusive) dietary pattern to promote maximum health and longevity. Sadly, those people are light years ahead of the traditional medical system still stuck in the pills-potions-procedures paradigm. As a matter of fact, Dr. Kim Williams, past President of the American College of Cardiology, has quipped upon recognizing that the leading cause of death among Cardiologists is Heart Attack, “there are two kinds of Cardiologists: vegans and those who haven’t read the literature.” It’s like the entire medical community had been busily “mopping up the flooded floor without ever bothering to turn off the faucet!” Thankfully, however, more and more practitioners have stepped out from behind the “traditional” curtain to bring actual “healing” to their patients.
Formerly Plant-Based Telehealth where Dr. Laurie Marbas and her expanding team of doctors, all passionate about the healing power of whole food plant-based eating and members of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, can now serve patients in all 50 states. You deserve a doctor who focuses on true healing whenever possible, rather than just “symptom management!”
The body has powerful resources for healing itself…it WANTS to heal. The problem is we keep getting in its way! At True North, Dr. Alan Goldhamer and his team have decades of experience helping bodies heal themselves through the well-monitored and proven method of water-only fasting. Many chronic diseases (like Type 2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, etc.) routinely respond extremely well to this protocol. And while patients are healing, they’re also learning how to keep the healing going long after leaving True North!
Dr. Frank Sabatino has been helping patients heal for more than six decades utilizing a variety of protocols, and a whole food plant-focused eating pattern is at their core. For those who really want to jump start their healing, and whose health profile permits, water-only fasting is one of those protocols. Dr. Sabatino’s facility has a stunning oceanside view making visits there as good for the spirit as it is for the body.
The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) is a specialty for medical practitioners in a wide range of disciplines. Lifestyle medicine is a medical specialty that uses therapeutic lifestyle interventions as a primary method to treat chronic conditions including, but not limited to, cardiovascular diseases, Type 2 Diabetes, and obesity.

If you know anyone with Type 2 Diabetes, you have probably heard that when they asked their doctor how long they’ll have to take their medication, the answer is generally “for the rest of your life”. And yet over and over again people are discovering that it was the very food they were told to eat was actually causing the insulin resistance that resulted in diabetes. The wrong food was the problem; the right food is the solution. Type 2 diabetes need not be a life-long problem.
The Plantrician Project is a coalition of physicians and other healthcare providers convinced by decades of research that a plant-centered approach to eating is also the well-tested optimal approach to healing, particularly our most deadly chronic diseases that rob us, not only of years to our lives, but also of life to our years.
