Avoid a Trip to the ER with a Healthy Vegan Diet ~ Dr. Grace Chen

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 19 Jul 2015
  • Dr. Grace Chen will discuss common Emergency Room visits. Some common complaints include abdominal pain, headaches, chest pain, fractures, infections, shortness of breath, and headaches. Unfortunately, many medications we prescribe for diseases have untoward side effects, resulting in even more emergency department visits. Many complaints can be ameliorated or completely eliminated by avoiding consumption of animal products. By eating a plant-based diet, people can avoid medication side effects and chronic disease and live a long healthy life.
    Grace Chen, MD, is a board certified emergency physician who practices at Kuakini Medical Center in Honolulu. She grew up in New Jersey and obtained her undergraduate degree at Dartmouth College before returning to attend New Jersey Medical School in Newark. She completed her residency in New York before moving to California where she practiced for eight years. She always loved visiting Hawaii, and last year she decided to make Hawaii her home.
    Dr. Chen has been a vegetarian for over 20 years and became a vegan five years ago. She is passionate about leading a healthy lifestyle that includes avoiding animal products and practicing yoga. She is a strong advocate of preventing chronic disease through diet and lifestyle changes.

    Please don't list "vegan actors." These whores for attention merely do what the public dictates of them, and cave into pressure. Portman was vegan for like a "year" MAYBE, but I doubt realistically she was ever even a vegetarian.

    It is encouraging to see the next generation of young doctors embracing WFPB diet as that is not what they are taught in med school. I admire this young woman's initiative, As a professional speaking coach, I warmly suggest some presentation/public speaking training for her. The word "actually" is repeated often every minute, and in my view, distracting. This highly intelligent young woman is a credit to her profession.

    For around a decade, I survived on psyllium husk powder plus lots of water which seems to be safe for long term use. With an unrefined vegan diet, I don't need fiber supplements anymore. I still have some psyllium husk fiber and acacia fiber that I have no use for anymore. Psyllium seed powder can be used as a thickener for cooking. Healthy eating patterns are not necessarily vegan or even low fat as seen in the okinawa diet and crete diet. The traditional hawaii diet probably had coconuts which is common in islander diets. Crete is known for olives but they also had some coconuts. 7th day adventists are quite healthy but only a percentage are vegan. Dr Dean Ornish diet allows for fish oil supplements, low fat dairy and egg whites. The non-vegan starch based unrefined pritikin diet has been around for decades. Nathan Pritikin switched from a vegan diet to a non-vegan diet to avoid taking vitamin b12 supplements. Nathan Pritikin put back some animal products probably to make the diet easier to sell. I heard both pritikin diet and dr dean ornish diet are now covered by medicare. Most of the therapeutic diets don't allow refined fat products like oil but can be more lax with refined carbs like white rice or refined protein like tofu.
