    Reversing Type 2 Diabetes

    Reversing Type 2 Diabetes

    My guest today is a 22 year veteran of the NYPD, he served 4 terms as a United States Senator, and he’s currently serving as the President of the Brooklyn Borough in New York – Mr. Eric Adams. 

    If you’ve not heard Eric speak, prepare to be inspired, motivated, and ready to change the way you look at life. I mean that – this man has overcome many tragedies and not one has rattled his cage.

    Eric had lost vision in his left eye and he was beginning to lose the sight in his right eye, he had extensive nerve damage and doctors stated he would need to have his fingers and toes removed, all due to type 2 diabetes that he didn’t even realize he had. 

    Faced with this diagnosis he took matters into his own hands and sought out the advice from the best plant based doctors in the nation. Eric found a new way of life through a comprehensive whole food plant based lifestyle, and as a result, he regained his vision, the nerve damage disappeared, and the diabetes was sent home packing! 

    Maybe you’ve heard his story, maybe this will be the first time, whatever the case may be, I truly feel that you’re going to be moved as Eric’s story further proves that we all have the power within to positively change, and overcome what may feel like a devastating situation.

    So, get dialed in and enjoy the story of Reversing Type 2 Diabetes – with Eric Adams.

    Your Body in Balance, The New Science of Food, Hormones, and Health with Dr. Neal Barnard

    Your Body in Balance, The New Science of Food, Hormones, and Health with Dr. Neal Barnard

    This week, the president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Dr. Neal Barnard, joins the show and we talk about his latest book, ‘Your Body in Balance’. 

    The information and evidence that Dr. Barnard presents is this book is not only eye opening, it’s important for everyone to understand. As you’ll soon hear, food is more than just fuel for your body, it literally affects our hormones and our health. We dive into the science behind how conditions like infertility, weight gain, menopausal symptoms, breast and prostate cancers, erectile dysfunction, and even mood disorders —can be affected by, and improved by, simple diet changes. 

    While I was studying Plant Based Nutrition at Cornell, I recall listening to Dr. Barnard discuss his numerous research studies investigating the effects of diet on diabetes, including a groundbreaking study of dietary interventions in type 2 diabetes, that paved the way for viewing type 2 diabetes as a potentially reversible condition for many patients. He blew me away with his work that includes more than 90 scientific publications and 20 books. In fact, it’s so impressive, that he is the editor in chief of the Nutrition Guide for Clinicians, a textbook made available to all U.S. medical students.

    You get the idea; Dr. Barnard is the real deal, and his mission is saving and improving human and animal lives through plant-based diets and ethical and effective scientific research.

    So, let’s talk about Your Body in Balance, The New Science of Food, Hormones, and Health with Dr. Neal Barnard.

    This is a very exciting week for The Peace Love Plants Podcast and, in all honesty, me personally. As most of you know, outside of this podcast, I am a Whole Food Plant Based Chef. So, I kind of geek out on plant-based food, recipe development and really anything relating to plant-based cooking. This week I am humbled to say that one of the greatest plant-based chefs in the world joins the podcast, Chef Mark Reinfeld!

    Chef Mark is an award winning chef and 2017 vegetarian hall of fame inductee, which by the way, has some pretty big names such as, Dr. Michael Greger, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, just to name a few. 

    He’s authored eight books, traveled the world teaching and learning, and is now the founder of Vegan Fusion Culinary Academy in Boulder Colorado. A nationally accredited school helping people learn how to cook plant based and fulfill their mission on earth.

    As you will soon hear, Chef Mark is more than just a chef, he’s a leader and an altruistic human that fulfills his own life’s purpose every single waking moment. 

    So, get ready to learn the true meaning of ‘Ahimsa Through the Medium of Food’ with Chef Mark Reinfeld.

    Vegan Fine Foods

    Vegan Fine Foods

    This week joining the show is Dr. Steven Smith, founder of Vegan Fine Foods based in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. 

    Dr. Smith switched to a whole food plant based lifestyle over 20 years ago after a health scare and he hasn't looked back. 

    During those 20 plus years he realized that a lot of stores don’t carry vegan products, or if they do – you had to search high and low for them, and when you found one that you liked, it was no longer there the next time. He grew tired of this scenario, so he decided to solve the problem. Now he is a pioneer and he is shaking up the grocery space with the first of its kind all vegan market that includes an eatery. 

    He’s a brilliant mind and a man on a mission. I hope you enjoy the story of “Vegan Fine Foods” With Dr. Steven Smith.
