Gabriela's son is a happy child now that he no longer suffers from croup or frequent illness


“My son was sick with croup almost every month. He was missing school and we often had to take him to the emergency room. Although his first doctor never gave us an actual diagnosis, she put him on an inhaler regiment and, on different occasions, he was given Dexamethasone. My husband and I could see that the treatment was doing more harm than good. We changed doctors and saw a specialist. We noticed a slight improvement with the new treatment, but were not comfortable using medications to disguise symptoms without addressing the root of his illness.

I learned about Dr. Fuhrman from his 2011 PBS Special.  Everything he said made absolute sense. I purchased many of his books to learn how to apply his principals so that, once and for all, I could help my son get better by treating the cause of the problem. I was studying nutrition at the time and many of the concepts I believed to be true were challenged. Thus, I must admit that I was a bit skeptical at first. Yet, at the end, the evidence was loud and clear. I thought I was feeding my son well by giving him plenty of fruits and vegetables, but I didn’t realize that the amount of dairy foods and animal proteins I was giving him were the cause of the problem.

To test Dr. Fuhrman’s recommendations, I increased his beans, seeds, and nuts intake while lowering the amount of animal products and whole grains in his diet. Soon after, I noticed when he didn’t drink cow’s milk he felt better so I stopped giving it to him altogether.  The results were immediate and amazing. He hasn’t been sick for months and is not taking any medication, not even the allergy medicine he had been on for more than a year. Before, every time we took him to the pool or let him run at the park he would get sick. Fortunately, since he started following Dr. Fuhrman’s plan, he can finally enjoy his childhood and be a normal kid.
Thank you Dr. Fuhrman and God Bless.”
