I know that you know the power of food, but sometimes it’s nice to hear it from someone outside the SCD universe, even if the videos are dated.
Dr. Dean Ornish has long been studying the effect of diet on health and wellness and has demonstrated some powerful findings. He has challenged the long-held belief that your genes are your fate, showing that lifestyle changes can in fact change the way your genes are expressed.
CLARIFICATION: I am not intending to endorse Dr. Ornish’s diet. Frankly, I couldn’t tell you what it is. What does impress me about his story is that he comes from the “modern medicine” tradition, yet says that diet can change the way your genes are expressed. This is 180 degrees different from every gastroenterologist I have ever spoken to who tells me that diet does not affect Crohn’s. I guess I derive some small hope from this, regardless of his diet plan.
