I always try to stay on the positive side but every once in a while I have to clear up the distorted, negative narrative that is being propagated in society today.

My expertise is in healing disease through whatever means are available to optimize our health. 11 years as the Director of the Rush Copley Wound Center has opened my eyes even further to the power of nutrition in healing. To see a patient's wound that has been present for 2 years without improvement then begin to heal within 2 to 4 weeks once nutrition is dialed in, is absolutely remarkable. Growth is visible and so beautiful!

There has been this incessant narrative that animal protein is bad for our health and planet. I have had many patients say they are avoiding meat. The problem is we have an appetite and when we avoid meats which are the most appetite-suppressing food, we eat more calories from other foods. This tends not to be fruits, seeds, nuts, and veggies but less healthy options.

I don't hear these antimeat people calling us out for drinking soda and high-calorie alcohol drinks, or eating donuts, fast foods, or processed foods.

What I see first-hand is growth from reaching our protein goals with the best source of protein being from animals. (You can get protein from concentrated veggie sources but it is more difficult)


I'm planting that seed, let's see how this can grow. Pass this on to your family and friends so we can make a better 2024 for us, our friends, our family, and our community.

Take care and thank you,
