It’s essential that we, as medical professionals, shift from a primary allopathic-focus of diagnosing and treating—too often medicating—to a focus of identifying and eradicating the cause of disease, which is often tied directly to what people are eating
Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2015
Physicians and medical practitioners from around the globe will gather this week, September 30 – October 3, in Anaheim, CA for the third annual International Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference. This CME accredited medical conference showcases the nutritional science that overwhelmingly supports the efficacy of a whole food, plant-based dietary lifestyle and its proven ability to prevent, suspend and, often, reverse the chronic, degenerative diseases that are plaguing the U.S. and much of the western world.
“As the healthcare system shifts from a fee-for-service model to one that is value and outcome-based, it’s essential that we, as medical professionals, shift from a primary allopathic-focus of diagnosing and treating—too often medicating—to one of identifying and eradicating the cause of disease, which is often tied directly to what people are eating,” said Scott Stoll, MD, conference co-founder. “This is fueling interest in the subject matter of optimal dietary lifestyle that will be the sole focus of this week’s conference.”
The conference faculty features an impressive line-up of prominent voices representing the foremost leaders in whole food, plant-based nutritional science and clinical nutrition, whose research and leadership are at the forefront of the preventive, nutritional medicine movement. American College of Cardiology President Kim A. Williams, MD, will kick-off the event as the keynote speaker for the Wednesday evening opening dinner.
The International Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference is produced by The Plantrician Project, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization with a mission of producing educational events, tools and resources for physicians, healthcare practitioners and those they serve. Having launched PlantBasedDocs.com last month, The Plantrician Project is also meeting the needs of its constituency with the new Culinary Rx nutritional literacy and plant-based cooking online course, and the recently published Plant-based Nutrition Quick Start Guide..
