The following story was written by Lori M. who lives in Statesville, North Carolina.
Dr. Fuhrman immediately struck me as being very knowledgeable, very committed to his work, and amazingly informed about how nutrition affects each part of the body and its specific function. My husband and I both converted to Dr. Fuhrman's plant-based approach to eating, enjoying a tremendous increase in energy levels, lower cholesterol, loss of excess weight, and we were able to conceive our first child. I enjoyed two complication-free pregnancies, no small detail, giving birth to our son at age 39 and our daughter at 44. While pregnant, Dr. Fuhrman helped tremendously with bouts of nausea, but there were no other complications.
I believe that our nutrition choices -- pre-pregnancy, during pregnancy, and as we introduced foods to our children -- have changed their lives forever. Because our children have always eaten a plant-based diet, they enjoy all types of fruits and vegetables and meal time is a pleasant experience. Neither has ever needed antibiotics -- no ear infections, allergies, asthma or persistent childhood illnesses. They do get the occasional cold, but quickly recover. My son is now a very energetic six-year old, but very well-behaved and not hyperactive. He has an excellent attention span for his age and excels as a home-schooled student.
I am so thankful that Dr. Fuhrman offers the option for telephone consultation, since it is very difficult to find classically-trained medical doctors who understand and advocate the nutrition component of disease prevention and natural living, without the use of medications.
