Sadly, surgery has become the routine elixir for disease management. Whether for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, or even weight loss, more and more doctors are offering up the scalpel as a fix. But here’s a well-kept secret you should know. In clinical studies, the only proven method that truly reverses disease and fixes its underlying causes is a whole foods, plant-based diet.

Why? Because surgery does not address the underlying causes of a disease. It treats the symptoms and often introduces complications such as chronic pain, infection, scar tissue, urinary problems and in some cases, even death. A whole foods, plant-based diet avoids the lethal aspects of a typical Western diet. It replaces high fat, high cholesterol, and highly processed foods with delicious meals that provide antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber, phytonutrients, and the water our bodies need.

Many Americans view switching to a healthier, plant- based diet as more drastic than the surgeon’s blade. It’s too much of a sacrifice to give up the taste of greasy cheese burgers, fries and gooey desserts. So we ask you this: why is it that once our bodies become used to eating only nutritiously, these other foods, if eaten, make us feel sick?

We are not saying all surgery is bad. In our opinion, it should be viewed as a last resort, after other alternatives have been exhausted. The decision is yours. But first come armed with a true knowledge and understanding of your choices. There is a lot of misinformation about what “a healthy diet” means. At NHWFFL, our recommendations are based on clinical studies and scientific research. Then consider which knife you would prefer, the surgeon’s or the chef’s.
