In just two weeks, one patient went from 16 medications to two. In that time she also lost 21.5 pounds.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 27, 2011
Montgomery Heart & Wellness has released a video with patients sharing their experiences in reversing type 2 diabetes and other chronic illnesses. All four of the patients interviewed had life-changing improvements in their health after they changed to diabetes reversing diet under the supervision of Dr. Baxter Montgomery.
To illustrate how drastic these improvements can be, the following data has been provided from one of the patients. When this patient started the program, she was taking the following list of medications:
- Levemir 70 units qam and 30 units qhs
- Humalog 34 units qam and 34 units TID b/f meals
- Klor-Con 10 10mEq bid
- Cozaar 50 mg daily
- Diltiazem 240mg qd
- Furosemide 80 mg qd
- Vitamin D 50,000 IU 2 times per week
- Pantoprazole 40 mg qd
- Benzonatate 100 mg tid
- Isosorbide Mononitrate qd
- Simvastatin 40 mg qd
- Travatan 0.004% 1 gtt qd
- Prednisone 10 mg ½ tab qd
- Meclizine 25 mg prn
- Metolazone 5 mg prn
- Nitroglycerin 0.4 mg prn
After two weeks of changing her eating habits, her medications were reduced to the following:
- Travatan 0.004% 1 gtt qd
- Tekalmo 300/10 qd
In just two weeks, her medications were reduced from 16 to two. Her initial weight was 289 lbs. During her two week follow up, she measured in at 267.5 lbs. In other words, her weight loss during the first two weeks was 21.5 lbs. During this time she had no increase in exercise, nor was she taking any other measures to reduce her weight.
In the video, one patient recalls how she ended up in a hospital almost completely paralyzed due to side effects from the medications she was taking. After changing to a plant-based diet, she was able to immediately discontinue a number of her medications. Despite the fact that she was leaving out medications for cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar, she was still seeing significant improvements on all of her tests.
Another patient recalls how her physical endurance greatly increased despite the fact that she had not increased her amount of exercise. She shares her experience of traveling to Italy on a vacation where she would walk for hours each day without feeling any soreness afterwards. Before her lifestyle change such physical exertion would have been extremely difficult.
These patients are just a few examples of the many people who have drastically improved their health and wellbeing by changing to a minimally processed, whole foods, plant-based diet. Montgomery Heart & Wellness has seen hundreds of patients who have reversed heart disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses by making the lifestyle changes suggested by Dr. Montgomery.
