If they have type two diabetes. For example, I usually cut their medications down by about a half at the first visit. So as they leave on this diet style program, which is of course, based on the nutrient density of food. So they’re really eating foods of a high micronutrient density. And if you analyze foods by micronutrient density, that means, you know, which foods have the highest micronutrients, or vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.
It’s only been the last 18, 20 years we’ve been aware phytochemicals existed, and now we realize well these are indispensable, critical elements that prevent cancer, repair DNA, broken cross links. Prevent, you know, able the body to detoxify toxic carcinogens and things. When, and, and they, there’s, there’s thousands of them. Have together we have to eat nutrient-rich food. We can’t expect to take a vitamin pill, eat nutrition, you know, nutrient barren food. The point is, is that nutrient density equation, health equals N over C, or analyzing the nutrition per calorie density of foods, put green vegetables at the top.
And of course, that’s what the scientific literate shows have the most protection against cancer as well. Holly flower, broccoli, collared greens. Bok choy, things like that. Kale. These are called cruciferous vegetables with very powerful effects to help with the immune function. To prevent autoimmune disease. And to prevent cancer. But they have the highest nutrient density. And as you teach people how to eat these foods and make them taste great, and incorporate, you know, a, a diet of higher nutritional density, moving towards nutritional excellence, I can take them off their medications, as they, you know, for, as they get healthier, like let’s say the, the headache patient. You don’t expect their headaches really to go away in the first month.
Because they’re putting the nutrients back in their tissues. They’re still gonna be detoxifying pretty rapid rate. But by month number two or three, they’re usually all better, even if, had chronic daily headache syndrome.
So it’s weaning them off their medications, assuring them it’s okay not to feel better for a few weeks, then expecting them to see recovery in month two to four.
In diabetics. People lose about 15 pounds the first month, about 10 pounds the second month. That’s about 25 pounds in the first two months. And then they start losing at a slower rate. You know, 6 to 8 pounds a month thereafter.
I’ve had many patients who’ve lost approximately 100 pounds per year. I even have a patient who lost 270 pounds and has 300, a little more to go.
