Our Commitment Is to Support You on the Journey

 

Hippocrates Docs is committed to making sure you know all there is to know about using food for medicine. Witnessing the state of decline of the general health of Americans, we will no longer stand by to see it continue. We have committed to furthering the progress of the Whole Food, Plant-Based Movement by supporting you while on your journey, as well as the Doctors and other practitioners who are so passionate about this work.

You’ve met the 7 Original Heroes of The Movement, and if you haven’t, be sure to visit the page and the pages of information on each of these amazing, courageous Doctors.

Our site will always have the best blogs and articles by medical providers, patient outcome successes and scientific research to support prescribing a Whole Foods Plant-Based, no/low oils and no sugar diet (WFPB). We are dedicated to keeping up with the latest research on diseases or chronic conditions that are being prevented or reversed through the adoption of plant-based lifestyles.

A 2013 study funded by NIH concluded that: “plant-based diets are cost-effective, low-risk interventions that may lower body mass index, blood pressure, HbA1C, and cholesterol levels. They may also reduce the number of medications needed to treat chronic diseases and lower ischemic heart disease mortality rates. Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients, especially those with high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or obesity.” Click here to read the study. 

As we move forward in the development of additional stages of the Just 1 Thing 4 Health program and its’ offerings, we will announce the new and exciting things we’ll be focusing on.

For instance, we want to announce that we are recommending this book and resources as a way for you to GET STARTED STRONG!

Hippocrates would hardly be surprised by the data on the table today. Abundant scientific information has firmly established the role of nutrition in health. Studies funded and endorsed by authorities as diverse as the NIH and Bill and Melinda Gates continue to expand and confirm the Greek’s dictate to “let food be thy medicine.”

But even as our awareness grows, so do the costs. Heart disease—this country’s leading cause of death for the past few decades—still kills one American every 90 seconds. Over $700 billion U.S. dollars are spent annually on combined costs for cancer, stroke and diabetes—the number two, four and seven, respectively, of the top ten American killers.

These statistics prevail more than two decades after Neal Barnard, M.D., T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D, Caldwell B. Esselstyn, M.D., Joel Fuhrman, M.D., Michael Greger, M.D., John A. McDougall, M.D., and Dean Ornish, M.D.began publishing significant data linking plant-based diets to prevention and reversal of heart disease.

The current data are in fact so strong that Medicare now covers cardiac rehabilitation programs based on the Pritikin and Ornish plans for people with a history of cardiovascular disease. Private insurers are beginning to consider similar plans in response to the rousing demands of a food-conscious public.
