    Ep 72 Dr. Caldwell B Esselstyn Jr. on the only reason anybody has heart disease.

    Ep 72 Dr. Caldwell B Esselstyn Jr. on the only reason anybody has heart disease.

    On today’s podcast Nicolette talks to the amazing Dr. Caldwell B Esselstyn Jr who has two words he wants you to take away from this podcast; Endothelia Cells and Nitric Oxide. Esselstyn began his career as a breast cancer surgeon and realised he was doing absolutely nothing to help. He moved into treating cardiovascular disease, where he did a study on patients who had had triple vascular cardiac disease and managed to get them to switch to a plant based diet. This study went on for 12 years with a 100% success rate with the patients who stuck with the diet. He explains how people with vascular cardiac disease have damaged their endothelium cells and that this damage can be reversed by eating foods full of Nitric Oxide – the magic gas that prevents us from having blockages and a disease body, one of the many benefits. Learn what foods to eat and what to stop eating to reverse your vascular cardiac disease which is caused by only one reason – the food you eat!

    Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., received his B.A. from Yale University and his M.D. from Western Reserve University. In 1956, pulling the No. 6 oar as a member of the victorious United States rowing team, he was awarded a gold medal at the Olympic Games. He was trained as a surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic and at St. George’s Hospital in London. In 1968, as an Army surgeon in Vietnam, he was awarded the Bronze Star. Dr. Esselstyn has been associated with the Cleveland Clinic since 1968. During that time, he has served as President of the Staff and as a member of the Board of Governors. He chaired the Clinic’s Breast Cancer Task Force and headed its Section of Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology.

    Ep 69 French Cuisine turned Plant-Based Chef, Ed Tatton talks to Nicolette today

    Ep 69 French Cuisine turned Plant-Based Chef, Ed Tatton talks to Nicolette today

    Ed Tatton is a professional fine-dining chef who has been to culinary college and worked in high-end kitchens in the UK, Australia, New Zealand as well as Canada, but now specializes in making organic naturally leavened sourdough.
    Having worked in the restaurant business since he was 13, Ed has always made everything from scratch, and used organic local seasonal produce to influence an ever-changing menu. He moved to Whistler in 2013 for a snowboard season and has been here ever since.
    As co-owner of BReD – Organic Sourdough with his wife Natasha, Ed leads a small bakery team, making and baking bread, pizza dough and other small baked goods. These days, Ed’s food is compassionately 100% plant-based, a movement he is passionately excited to be part of and help grow for the benefit of people, the planet and the animals.
    On today’s podcast Nicolette and Ed discuss how Ed was born with a hole in his heart and at age 25 had a stem fitted into his Aorta. Not wanting to be on meds anymore, and following his wife’s footsteps, Ed started to eat plant-based foods and slowly came off his medication. Ed tells us about working in the restaurant business, starting his Facebook bread company and how he expanded from 30 loafs in the first week to now having his own bakery. Learn how Ed and Natasha thrived through Covid restrictions, and how they strive to become 100% organic,  continuing to team up with companies, products and charities around the world to support and become even more sustainable.
