Don’t miss this documentary: Plantwise

As long as we’re on the topic of eating better in 2022, I highly recommend you take the time, along with the ones you love, to see a new documentary, Plantwise.

PlantWise follows the inspiring stories of six people struggling with debilitating health conditions caused by unhealthy dietary choices. They learn that the Standard American Diet is the culprit:

  • High in fat, sugar, and salt,
  • High in ultraprocessed foods, and
  • Low in fiber and nutrients.

TO TREAT CHRONIC DISEASE

Our nutritional choices are wreaking havoc and creating chronic illness in much of our society. With hope, these six folks discover that the epidemic of diseases such as

  • heart disease,
  • type 2 diabetes,
  • obesity, and
  • high blood pressure

is largely reversible.

TO PREVENT CHRONIC DISEASE

In addition, a plantwise nutrition plan is great preventive medicine. How so? A whole-food, plantwise nutrition plan results in:

  • DIABETES: 62%: a healthy diet can drastically lower your chances of developing diabetes by 62%.
  • HEART DISEASE: 29%: heart disease is a leading cause of death among many Americans, so reducing your risk is essential. A healthy diet can lower your chances of heart disease by about 29%.
  • BRAIN HEALTH: 24%: whole, plant-based foods boost your brain health as well as your physical well-being. A healthy diet can lower your chance of experiencing cognitive decline by approximately 24%.
  • CANCER: 18%: cancer prevention can start on your plate. A healthy diet rich in plant-based foods can lower your risk of developing cancer by about 18%.

Each person in the documentary discovers the benefits of a whole-food, plant-based diet and chooses to embrace it. As a result, they reverse their chronic conditions and experience a health transformation. They find renewed energy and vitality that they thought they had lost forever.

PlantWise features nationally recognized experts in lifestyle medicine revealing that what we choose to eat every day often determines our health destiny. Stories and science are woven together in an inspiring message of hope!

My friend, Ted Hamilton, MD, MBA, and the Chief Mission Integration Officer with AdventHealth says, “Our approach to whole-person care calls us to support the health and wellbeing of people, encouraging and supporting them in making positive, lasting changes. What if there was a resource that doctors could use to inspire and educate their patients on how to make dramatic changes? Such a resource would be invaluable. That’s our goal for PlantWise.”

This documentary is worth your time. Highly recommended.
