World’s Leading Experts in Preventive, Nutritional Medicine Present This Week in Naples, Florida at Inaugural North American Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference
Date:10/22/2013

Naples, FL (PRWEB) October 22, 2013

The inaugural North American Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference is set for October 24-26, 2013 in Naples, Florida at the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club. This CME accredited medical conference will educate gatekeepers of dietary recommendations—our nation’s physicians and healthcare professionals—about the nutritional science that overwhelmingly supports the efficacy of whole food, plant-based nutrition and its proven ability to prevent, suspend and, often, reverse disease.

The medical community is waking up to the reality that a diagnose-and-treat disease-care system is unsustainable. This is fueling interest in the subject matter that will be the focus of the conference, attended by medical professionals from throughout the United States and from as far away as Australia. The Welcome Dinner and opening presentation by William W. Li, MD, president, medical director, and co-founder of the Angiogenesis Foundation will kick-off the conference starting this Thursday evening, October 24, 2013.

“We’re treating cancer too late in the game, when it’s already established and, often, already spread,” said Dr. Li. “Could the answer be preventing angiogenesis—eating to starve cancer? What we eat three times a day is our chemotherapy.”

Dr. Li will be joined by an impressive line-up of physicians whose research and leadership are at the forefront of the preventive, nutritional medicine movement:

Neal Barnard, MD: “Type 2 diabetes has reached epidemic levels in both children and adults—it’s a looming pandemic with incalculable consequences, yet it’s a chronic condition that’s preventable and reversible.”

Susan Blum, MD, MPH: “Changing the food you eat is the single most powerful lifestyle change you can make to heal your immune system.”

Thomas Campbell, II, MD: “Never before have we had the breadth and depth of evidence favoring plant-based diets. It is imperative that we incorporate this into our mainstream medical system.”

Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., MD: “Heart disease is the #1 killer of Americans, yet it’s a toothless paper tiger that need never exist. If it does exist, it need never progress. It’s exciting when you treat causation of disease: it’s prompt, powerful and persistent.”

Michael Greger, MD: “Past and current research clearly supports that a plant-based diet can be our greatest weapon in the fight against degenerative disease.”    

Benjamin Ha, MD: “A Plant-based diet is a powerful prescription for optimal health and wellness.”

Michael Klaper, MD: “We hear the saying, ‘You are what you eat,’ but what’s really true is ‘You are what you absorb.’ The gastrointestinal system is the interface between the environment, food, nutrients and cellular health.”

Scott Stoll, MD: “Physicians are trained to treat symptoms and diseases, rather than addressing the underlying imbalances that perpetuate illness. As physicians begin to change, the system will begin to change, ushering in real healthcare reform and a sustainable system.”

Phil Tuso, MD, FACP: “Food is the answer and the problem. True ‘health’ care reform rests on the foundation of a plant-based diet.”

Recent reports indicate that over 70% of Americans are reliant on pharmaceuticals, with over 50% taking two or more. “For the first time in human history, people are dependent on medications that typically only address symptoms—not the underlying cause of disease,” said Scott Stoll, MD, co-founder of the North American Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference. “We’ve become expert in disease management, not in true ‘health’ care where we focus on the art of prevention through plant-based nutrition and inexpensive lifestyle modification. Our current system is rewarding the management of disease, while not rewarding prevention and prescriptions for dietary change. This has to change.”

The good news is that momentum is building in support of healthcare transformation, taking it from a system of diagnose and treat to one that's focused on both prevention and on identifying and eradicating the cause of disease—all too often directly tied to the Standard American Diet.

”The vast majority of our nation’s medical schools fail to include preventive, nutritional medicine education as part of their standard curriculum, even though the CDC estimates that 70% or more of our nation’s healthcare dollars are spent on the treatment of conditions that are lifestyle-related—all too often a result of what people are eating,” emphasized Dr. Stoll. “It's going to take doctors becoming informed, rising up, banding together, and, in the spirit of the Hippocratic Oath, demanding change of the current system. It’s happening.”
