Food choices to prevent or reverse chronic diseases

At Briglia Dental Group in West Chester, Pennsylvania, we have been beating the drum for treating the root cause of chronic conditions, rather than merely masking or resolving symptoms, for more than 30 years. Dr. Ron Briglia understands the power of lifestyle factors, including food choices that prevent, protect against and manage the disease. Oral health is inextricably linked to the health of the rest of the human body. Hence, guidance on a diet helps prevent and reverse both oral disease and systemic illnesses. 

Cardiovascular Disease Fact or Fiction in West Chester PA Area

What role does food play in the prevalence of some common cancers worldwide?

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr. of the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute, is a pioneering researcher in the relationship between diet and chronic conditions. In Eating You Alive, a documentary, he explains his work. Frustrated with the lack of effectively helping the next generation of cancer patients, Dr. Esselstyn identified that breast cancer rates among Japanese women were a fraction of their caucasian counterparts. However, among second and third-generation Japanese-American women, the rates were the same as their Caucasian American counterparts. He contends that nutrition is the common denominator, famously embodied by the Okinawan diet. 

Are there also connections between diet and heart disease?

Yes, Dr. Esselstyn has found that Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is almost unheard of among the Okinawans of Japan, the Tarahumara Indians of northern Mexico, and the Highlanders of Papua New Guinea. Yet, the disease is the leading killer of men and women in western civilizations. The former, healthy cultures’ diets center around whole, plant-based nutrition without oils. The western world’s diet of meat, dairy, and oil-centricity pummels the body’s natural defenses that protect against hypertension and CAD.

How can a plant-based diet help me? 

Dr. Esselstyn has found rock-solid data that cardiovascular disease can be reversed with food and food alone. His research first occurred in the 1980s, long before statin drugs had been invented. The sick study subjects who complied well with his diet had no further cardiovascular events. The others either died within months or had to have another bypass procedure. No other technologies or procedures were used, as bypass procedures have a reported 50% failure rate within six months.
