Despite working for 20 years in hospital administration, surrounded by healthcare, Pat Humphrey neglected his own health and trusted solely in the healthcare system to provide treatments to fix what ailed him. Like so many people, Pat found himself on a slippery slope. His doctor prescribed medication to treat his blood pressure. He took pills to suppress his cholesterol. He had medicine to control his diabetes. He had a few stents. He lost weight. Then he had bypass and was told there was nothing more to be done. Pat found himself between a rock and a hard place.
Come hear from Pat who, against all odds, was able to overcome heart disease by following a plant-based eating plan created by the famous Cleveland Clinic physician, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and documented in the movie “Forks over Knives.” Pat discovered that heart disease is truly a food-borne illness. Facing a grim future, he taught himself how to use food, specifically a whole foods, plant-based diet, as medicine.
