Overview

The prevention and treatment of disease with a plant-based diet now has a scientific foundation and is considered evidence-based medicine. Yet few physicians are making use of this valuable prophylaxis and treatment. One reason is that no textbook had been written to guide the practicing physician on how to treat their patients with a plant-based diet. This book meets the needs of the practicing physician and includes 25 articles recently published in peer-review journals, and all fully documented with both epidemiological and interventional studies.

Description

This book meets the needs of the practicing physician and includes 25 articles recently published in peer-review medical journals, and all fully documented with both epidemiological and interventional studies. Includes a wide variety of pathologies:

Breast Cancer - Chronic Kidney disease - Colorectal cancer - Coronary Artery disease - Crohn's disease - Diverticular disease - Fibromyalgia - Gall stone disease - Hashimoto's and Grave's diseases - Osteoarthritis - Prostate cancer - Rheumatoid Arthritis - Stroke - Type II Diabetes

• Clinical considerations, including office visit strategies, titration of medications, lab work needed, and enhancing patient compliance.

• Case studies demonstrating the clinical application of a plant-based diet.

Both as a treatment or prophylaxis the plant-based diet has no side effects, adverse reactions and no contraindications. It can be used as a monotherapy or as an adjunct to medication and surgery. It can also treat several comorbidities at once. Treating patients with a plant-based diet has the advantage of being a very low-cost method of treatment, while being highly effective, thus saving patients money and saving the physician's valuable time.

About the author

Stewart Rose and Amanda Strombom founded a regional vegetarian society, Vegetarians of Washington (based in Seattle, WA), in 2001. Over the years since then, they have listened to many patients express a desire to prevent and treat their chronic diseases with a plant-based or vegan diet, so their interest in the prevention and treatment of disease with a plant-based diet has grown.

They have also heard complaints from physicians about the lack of information and training on how a plant-based diet can be employed, along with pharmacotherapy and surgery, to treat their patients. 

Stewart and Amanda believe in the scientific approach to medicine, especially evidence-based medicine. To this end they have made a careful study of the medical research available on the prevention and treatment of disease with a plant-based diet. For the past several years, their articles have been published in peer-reviewed medical journals and are now brought together into one comprehensive book, written to fill the needs of physicians who wish to add the plant-based diet to their therapeutic toolbox.

Their work continues in this new and important branch of medicine, with the publication of more articles which will be included in future editions of this book.  They have also produced and hosted several medical seminars in Seattle, WA, for the benefit of local physicians and medical students, with talks given by a wide variety of specialists. Washington State Medical Association has approved these seminars for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit
