“Live-it, not die-it”
I want to tell you about Dr. H. Robert Silverstein, as I feel he’s an unsung hero who has been helping patients for decades with plant-based diet and disease.
He is board certified in cardiology and internal medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine. As director of The Preventive Medicine Center in Hartford, Conn., he helps his patients by empowering them to change their diets and lifestyle. With this holistic approach, he helps them where they are … whether it be making small healthy changes with diet or strictly adopting a macrobiotic diet. He calls his approach the “live-it, not die-it.”
Many of his clients want to lose weight. I read one of his Web site articles, and of course, being a veggie lover myself, thought I’d share it with you. Eating many veggies CAN help you lose weight!! Dr. Silverstein writes that delicious, low-heat, slowly cooked, warm vegetables can easily control hunger. To read more…
I bought his book Maximum Healing, and I enjoyed the recipes (in line with my macrobiotic diet). I especially liked reading his scientific explanations of the cause of diseases and why (and how) many can be prevented and healed by diet. As many of you know, I am a true believer as I’ve experienced this firsthand myself!
