Four years ago I was obese and my blood pressure was averaging 155/95, and now it's consistently around 105/65 . . .without medication.
My 86-year-old mother, Helen, gave herself injections of insulin four times a day for over twenty years, and today she’s no longer taking it.
Ronnie, after suffering from open heart bypass surgery, and then stent procedures, woke up in the recovery room with more chest pain and was sent home to die with $600 of meds a month. He is now the epitome of health and fitness, and taking absolutely no medications.
Pam, having ovarian cancer, and told by a couple of physicians that she only had a few months to live, decided not to accept that fate - and that was fourteen years ago. Today she glows with a vibrant radiance seldom seen in women her age. (Pam's interview will be featured on Disease Proof in the near future; stay tuned.)
Elisa, in her late 20’s, was bedridden and unable to function due to the devastation of lupus symptoms. She was put on nearly thirty medications to no avail. Today, in her early 30’s, her blood tests are normal, and she’s off all medications, except one as needed. She has her life back and shines with exuberant health.
Anthony, a young high school graduate was obese and heading down a dangerous path. Today he is slender and buff, and most importantly bypassing a future of obesity related diseases.
Bonnie was a young woman who had cystic acne so bad that it was painful to smile, and the blemishes eroded her self esteem. Her dermatologist said that diet wouldn’t help, and she was put on several prescription drugs over the years. Nothing worked. However, today she no longer has acne flare ups and is medication free.
Augie, at the age of 83, takes no medications, feels great, and has run in 40 marathons since his 70th birthday. His youthfulness is evident to all.
Barb was succumbing to the typical symptoms of middle age women; increase in PMS, bloating and fatigue that led to inactivity. Today she’s trim and active; hiking mountainous terrain and riding her bike to work.

Mark was on four prescriptions for asthma, and used an inhaler every morning upon waking up.

I’ve personally interacted with each person named above. They are the real deal. And they are just the tip of the iceberg of people all over America and beyond who are getting their health restored by following Dr. Fuhrman’s high-nutrient eating style.
For years we've been led to believe that disease is just a part of the aging process; lulled to sleep by scribble marks on a prescription pad.
Perhaps some doctors and pharmaceutical companies have been misleading us.
Perhaps in the past we didn’t know any better, but now that we know the truth we will choose to no longer live in ignorance.
Enough is enough. It’s time to get smart.
The time has come for all of us to wake-up and jump on board the food revolution; and I’m not talking about the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution that adds butter and cheese to cream sauces, or grass fed beef to homemade noodles, or campaigns relentlessly for the removal of chocolate flavored milk from school lunches.
I’m talking about the kind of food revolution that eradicates unnecessary and expensive diseases from our bodies; the kind that prevents and reverses diabetes, hypertension and heart disease, and kills cancer . . . .the nutritarian food revolution!
The change of one person is a transformation.
The change of many is a revolution.
Let the real food revolution begin ~ the nutritarian revolution!
