Three previous blogs 1 2 3 looked at inspirational videos from the H.O.P.E. Project. In this blog, another video from the same producers covers the story of a 51-year old man, Marc Ramirez, who “cured” his diabetes with a WFPB diet.
He was able to dump all his medications and get rid of all the usual symptoms of diabetes – including the frequently experienced side-effect of erectile dysfunction. All down to the power of plants!
About Marc Ramirez
Marc Ramirez’s family were plagued by diabetes, diagnosed himself in 2002 he was told by his doctor that he’d need to take medication for the rest of his life. After hearing about the benefits of a wholefood plant-based diet in 2011, Marc and his wife Kim decided to give it a go.
His health and their sex life haven’t been the same since…
H.O.P.E. The Project – Healing Of Planet Earth
The H.O.P.E. Project 4 tries to inform people about the endless benefits of a wholefood, plant-based diet and to inspire them to adopt a conscious, sustainable and kind lifestyle.
H.O.P.E.’s 3 main aims
1. Live a healthy and long life
Eating a wholefood plant-based diet without animal products has the potential to prevent and reverse diseases and obesity, which improves our health and longevity.
2. Conserve nature and the environment
A plant-based diet (ideally organic) conserves natural resources, saves biodiversity and helps to reduce our ecological footprint.
3. Protect animals
The lives of countless species of animals are affected by the food we eat. Choosing to eat a WFPB diet goes hand in hand with efforts to promote a more peaceful world in which people understand that all living beings are entitled to compassion, dignity and life.
The above aims seem pretty sound to me and, without too much doubt, appear to be the most effective way each of us can promote optimal health, preserve the environment, and protect animals – all by simply changing our dietary habits.
