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.

Anne's Story


Anne no longer has to take the blood pressure medication which was causing her to feel depressed and suffer sleeplessness  

I was on a medication for high blood pressure and it was making me literally sick and tired. I was suffering from depression and total insomnia due to the medication. I watched Dr. Fuhrman for a few years on PBS and heard him say he didn't want to be sick for the sake of eating junk food and sodium. It finally sunk in when my blood pressure medication wasn't even working and my cardiologist wanted to add yet another medication as well as doubling the dose of the one I was on. Just the thought of taking more of what was already making me feel so bad was enough to make the decision to buy Eat To Live on my iPad.

That was the best thing I ever did. A mere three months later, my numbers were normal. The day I started following the Nutritarian program, with my doctor's approval, I went off my medication. I chose the vegan path, due to ethical reasons, and I couldn't be happier. I honestly just want to thank Dr. Fuhrman from the bottom of my healthy heart for getting me off the horrible meds and for spreading the word about healing ourselves with food, not pharmaceuticals. Priceless.
