Take Heart!

A Return to Health

This is one more story about the dramatic and beneficial changes that adopting a plant-based diet can have on our health. Joanne Irwin, a semi-retired social worker, shares how a routine blood test revealed that her LDL [bad cholesterol] level had skyrocketed far above normal. This increased led her to consult with Dr. Kumara Siddhartha at Emerald Physicians Services in South Yarmouth, who suggested she try a vegan diet for a few months.

As Irwin says, the results were fantastic, “But since I cut out meat, fish and dairy products, my LDL went from 170 to 69 in four months. My cholesterol went from 246 to 74.

My friends noticed a change in my energy and asked what I was doing differently. I had changed my eating habits, nothing more. But my life has taken a radical shift in a wonderful direction.”
