    Ep 75 From brain injury to running across Canada – Troy Adams liberates himself and others from the myths that hold society back.

    Ep 75 From brain injury to running across Canada – Troy Adams liberates himself and others from the myths that hold society back.

    Troy Adams is a 33 years old married father of two. His family is fed by plants, positivity and balance. Troy is also an avid adventure ultra runner who doubles as a Journeyman Insulator by career. He enjoy the challenges ahead in life and believes when in doubt choose peace, add some plants, and life will be enjoyable beyond measure. Troy may appear to be an everyday guy living a fairly normal life, but what you don’t see is that at age 16, Troy suffered a severe brain injury which has forever affected his entire life. But he’s used this experience to fuel himself to be of service to other in ways beyond measure.

    On this episode of the Eat Rea to Heal podcast, Troy shares his story of how he dealt with and often ignored his brain injuries in the beginning. It wasn’t always apparent, especially to his teenage friends, just how badly Troy was suffering. Information surrounding brain injuries wasn’t widely evident when Troy first had is accident and even his doctors didn’t know how to assess the effects of his brain injury. Without knowing how to deal with his trauma head-on, Troy tried to prove that everything was ok and that he was ‘normal’ like all of his friends. Instead, Troy found that his new normal was very disruptive - costing him friends, his schooling, jobs and later battles with medication overdoses – a similar story that many people with brain injuries often experience.

    Then Troy found running. Thanks to wanting to lose some weight and get in shape, he joined the annual Terry Fox run and that’s when running became Troy’s medication, therapy and a chance at a healthier life. Running liberated Troy from his brain injury and for the first time, he felt like the old Troy – just better and stronger. And that’s when he realized that he needed to advocate for people with brain injuries and Troy’s Run Foundation was born. Listen now to learn the story of Troy’s ran across Canada to bring people with brain injuries together and how a plant-based diet fuelled his mind, body and his journey.

    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.

Interview with Margaret Strauss

Excellent discussion. Thanks so much for hosting Margaret Straus. She has a tremendous amount of experience with the Gerson Therapy. A real pleasure to hear from her after the passing of her mother Charlotte and her brother Howard. I really miss Howard’s show. I feel this podcast will be a great resource for interviews and future news in the world of healing through wise nutrition. Thanks for your dedication, Nicolette!
