Let's transform health and healthcare. Together we can!
Dear Plantrician Project Friends,

The month's since our last newsletter have been busy!  And, despite, or more likely because of, all that the global pandemic has thrown at us this year, we're even more committed than ever to our mission of educating, equipping and empowering our physicians, healthcare providers and other health influencers with knowledge about the indisputable benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition!

We hope you enjoy the latest edition of our newsletter where we're sharing details of some of our recent initiatives and events as well as helpful resources and more.


In health, 

The Plantrician Project Team

International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention

We released the Volume 2, No. 2 of the Int'l Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention in early fall. This issue includes topics ranging from reversing gestational diabetes, to the healing powers of fasting. 

We also recently released findings from a new study: Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors in Resource Poor Communities in Lima, Peru: A Pilot Study.

Blog Feature: Diabetes - Devastating Yet Preventable

In 2019, 463 million adults suffered with diabetes; and that year healthcare expenditures for diabetes alone were estimated to be least $760 billion - 10% of the global total spent on healthcare!

While so much of the current conventional medical conversation around diabetes is focused on costly and minimally effective pharmaceutical interventions, there's a better, so much more effective solution.    

Learn more about how a whole-food, plant-based diet can effectively prevent, and in many cases reverse, this devastating disease during this brief but incredibly insightful conversation Dr. Scott Stoll had with Cyrus Khambatta of Mastering Diabetes.

Are you proud to be a Plantrician?

Looking for something fun to do that would also help us out?

We are creating a video montage (or "Tribute") to be used in future promotional campaigns to encourage support and engagement for The Plantrician Project's mission to educate, equip and empower our physicians, healthcare providers and other health influencers with knowledge about the indisputable benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition.

If you'd like to share why you are proud to be a Plantrician or why you believe Plantricians represent the future of healthcare, here's your chance to shine. 
I want to create a Tribute for Plantrician Project!
We recently shared a new resource with our community. The Healing Healthcare Guide, is a manual  for transforming healthcare systems through plant-based nutrition and lifestyle. It provides the answers to some of the most challenging questions presented by healthcare systems evaluating the adoption of a lifestyle medicine approach. 

Digital downloads of this resource maybe purchased from the Plantrician Project website for just $3.99.

The holidays are just around the corner. These two new books from respected Plantricians are great gifts if you wish to give the gift of health to your friends or family.

Body on Fire

Dr. Monica Aggarwal’s book, Body on Fire: How Inflammation Triggers Chronic Illness and the Tools We Have to Fight It helps readers take an honest assessment of their energy, lifestyle, dietary habits, and mental state and provide a series of interventions for reclaiming health. These prescriptions do not come in pill form. These prescriptions are not the quick way out. They take time and effort to initiate, but the benefits will be real and lasting. 
 

Healthy At Last

Eric Adams’s book, Healthy At Last, takes readers through his journey as Brooklyn Borough President and his mission to tackle one of the most stubborn health problems in the country: chronic disease in the African American community.

African Americans are heavier and sicker than any other group in the U.S., with nearly half of all Black adults suffering from some form of cardiovascular disease. After Adams woke up with severe vision loss one day in 2016, he learned that he was one of the nearly 5 million Black people living with diabetes-and, according to his doctor, he would have it for the rest of his life.

 

This fantastic and incredibly versatile recipe for Tofu(tziki) is featured in the latest issue of our Disease Reversal and Prevention Digest

A healthful take on the traditional Greek yogurt sauce, this version is great for dipping roasted vegetables, with stuffed grape leaves or even as a creamy salad dressing. Thanks Chloe Stein for sharing this with us!

INGREDIENTS

1 package firm tofu
2 cucumbers
¼ cup water or cucumber juice (explained in directions)
¼ cup cashews
6 Tbsp lemon juice
3 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp chopped dill (fresh)
½ tsp Bragg Liquid Aminos

DIRECTIONS

Slice cucumber down the middle length wise (hot dog style). Remove the seeds with a spoon and place seeds in a high speed blender.

Grate cucumber with a cheese grater or a food processor. Place grated cucumber in the middle of a medium/large kitchen towel (or in a cheese cloth). Fold sides of the towel together so the cucumber is in a pouch. Squeeze out excess liquid into a bowl (this liquid can be used in place of water in this recipe or you can drink it — it’s delicious). Set the cucumber and towel aside for now.

In your blender, add cashews, tofu (drained, but you do not have to press it), lemon, water or cucumber liquid, garlic and Bragg Liquid Aminos. Blend until super creamy, about two minutes depending on your blender.

In a medium mixing bowl, empty contents of blender, add drained cucumber, and add the chopped dill. Mix until well combined. The mixture gets thicker and more flavorful if allowed to sit in the fridge for a few hours. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 5 days!
