Dr. Ted Crawford reversed his chronic medical conditions of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and chronic GERD ten years ago by adopting a plant-based way of eating. He also lost 35 pounds along the way. After experiencing what it did for him, he began advocating this way of eating to his patients. He says that most of our health problems are caused by our lifestyle choices, especially what we choose to eat. Dr. Crawford believes that even if you have been treating your body horribly for years, you can reverse most, if not all, of the deleterious effects brought on by poor lifestyle choices.
