Leading Houston Cardiologist Dr. Baxter Montgomery will speak at the Houston Urban Raw Vegan Potluck.
Dr. Montgomery captured national attention for a nutritional boot camp designed to prevent and reverse the signs of heart disease, hypertension, obesity and diabetes.
In his new book, Dr. Baxter Montgomery, who has treated thousands of patients with severe cardiovascular disease for more than a decade, has created a food classification system that allows his patients to transition from illness to recovery, naturally.
"We have come to accept the first two causes of chronic disease—tobacco use and excessive drinking— to be the most damaging lifestyle choices. Certainly, these habits are tied to life-threatening diseases, like lung cancer, emphysema, cirrhosis of the liver, and more. Nevertheless, data from the CDC showing the extent of these habits falls short of fully explaining widespread nature of chronic illnesses in this country.
"In general, people who suffer from high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, and hypertension often maintain these chronic disorders despite getting regular exercise. It is only when they nourish their bodies properly that they get significant results. Therefore, poor nutrition trumps tobacco, alcohol, and sedentary lifestyles as the primary cause for the development of chronic illnesses. We cannot ignore the reality that what we eat is totally within our control, and our choices are what determine the level of risk we have of becoming ill."
"When it comes to heart healthy eating, fresh fruit and vegetables are essential. A natural plant based diet can not only help prevent heart disease and other chronic illnesses, but help to reverse it, even in its most advanced forms. " Dr. Baxter Montgomery
