Many individuals who follow the Nutritarian diet write to Dr. Fuhrman about their success. Keep in mind that results vary from person to person. As always, consult your physician if you have a medical history and/or condition that may warrant individual recommendations.

Scott's Story


Scott lst 90 pounds and reversed severe coronary artery disease, retinal occlusion and stage 4 melanoma  

 
My doctors at the cancer treatment center would be astonished to know that not only have I surpassed their five-year survival prognosis – but now, eight years later, I am cancer-free, having recovered from stage 4 melanoma. They would be even more surprised to know that I reversed severe cardiovascular disease, lymphedema, vision loss, sunlight allergy, high blood pressure and Achilles tendonitis – all through a Nutritarian diet.  

I was raised on a diet that was heavy in meat, bread, dairy and potatoes – with dessert a “must” after every meal.  I was fit and active through school, but my unhealthy eating took its toll as the years passed.  By the time I reached my mid-30s, my weight had shot up past 250 pounds. I developed severe Achilles tendinitis, and I had trouble sleeping. Plus, I had 80 percent vision loss in my left eye, due to retinal occlusion and getting injections of medications into my eye. I also suffered from very high blood pressure and was facing heart bypass surgery for obstructive coronary artery disease. Then I was diagnosed with cancer: stage 4 melanoma.

I underwent four surgeries and had several lymph nodes removed. The prognosis after surgery was that I had only a 25 percent chance of living the next 5 years. My body was swollen with lymphedema, causing me to lose feeling on the left side my body. I also could not go outside as I was too allergic to the sun – even with a SPF 110 sunblock, my skin would still become severely burned. I knew my life was in grave danger. I also realized that traditional medical protocols couldn’t offer me the answers or help I so urgently needed.

I felt alone and scared, thinking that I was going to die. Desperate to find a cure, I tried a variety of diets, cleanses and fasts, with little success. Then one day, I came across Dr. Fuhrman’s website, and discovered the Nutritarian Diet and the benefits of this nutrient-dense, plant-rich way of eating. I was skeptical at first but decided to give it one last try. The results astonished and delighted me.

Within months, this new way of life reversed every single condition I had! The weight started to melt off immediately, and in one year, I went from 250+ lbs. to 165 lbs. and have remained at this weight ever since. My Achilles tendonitis went away, I could hardly walk, now I could run with no symptoms. My vision loss was reversed – a development that baffled my eye doctor, but I was delighted I could see again.  

Even more dramatic was the reversal of my high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.  My coronary arteries are now 100 percent clear of blockages, which astonished the doctors and radiologist.  My lymphedema resolved and I regained all feeling in my left arm and the left side of my body.

The most dramatic change in my health is my recovery from Stage 4 melanoma.  My cancer is completely gone now and I’m pretty sure the doctors and staff at the cancer center believed I would have been dead by now. I’m sure I would be, if I had kept up with their treatment recommendations.

Within a few months, my sun allergy also disappeared, as did my sleep problems. I sleep like a baby now, and all the other little aches and pains are gone, too.

Since becoming a Nutritarian, I “fired” all my doctors and physiotherapists. They all reached out to me several times and tried their very best to convince me to keep taking my meds, and to come back for more procedures. They even offered to help me enroll in drug trials.  But I had witnessed the incredible healing power of the Nutritarian diet first-hand. I politely refused their offers, and stopped taking their calls. Eventually, they stopped calling.

In the years since I began my health transformation, I forged a close bond with nature, and am also eager to spread the message that the health benefits of the Nutritarian eating style are profound and far-reaching. There is healing and light energy in plants, born of good soil; once harnessed, the power of plant-based fuel for our bodies is endless.

I have shared this life-saving message with friends and family. My mother, who suffered from severe lupus, adopted the Nutritarian eating style and also recovered, and regained her ability to walk and now has her energy back.  My wife, Sonia, also switched to this way of eating and has lost weight and feels terrific.  I have some simple advice for anyone who’s thinking about starting a Nutritarian style of eating: Just get it done. I tell people: “Put your plants on and take your weight off!”
