  • Been following you for a while. Thank you so much for informing us and providing a platform where we can access information to take control of our own lives. Knowledge is the greatest gift. You're a legend.

  • Really impressive site, and such a contrast to other super-slick for-big-profit messianic sites like this one http://cutyourcravings.com/ which I stumbled across today, and which led me here.

    "A fool and his money are soon parted" applies really well to the nutrition world, esp. when people are desperate.

    Thank you for doing what you do!

  • Thank you for all you do Doctor Gregor. You changed my life. I became totally convinced and vegan because of your videos. I have lost weight and my asthma is gone alomg with IBS. Thank you for being the definition of a great Doctor.

  • This intro has touched me nearly to tears. Just discovered your channel, I look forward to taking in all this information. Thanks ahead for everything you have done for us.

  • Hi Dr. Greger. Been vegan for about 2 and half years. Unfortunately got UC last year; tried the the healing diet from Dr. Klein for a while. The problem is because I also have a hiatal hernia it seemingly caused acid reflux and some candida overgrowth. Once I stopped having so many banana smoothies, etc those symptoms went away. I have researched to death the subject; a lot based on your great advice/research as well as from Dr. McDougall among many others. I have and will do more intermittent fasting as well as a full fast when I have some down time over the summer which definitely helps. My question for you; Being that I am trying to find food options that work for my condition, do you know if substances like Teff Flour will give me issues? there seems to be little or no data on the subject. Since having to cut back on fruit, and not able to tolerate many raw vegetables (or even many cooked veggies for that many), I have been doing a lot of trial and error over this year as to what seems to really help and what doesn't. For example, even though I've been told over and over again avoid grains, but regular organic oatmeal seems to do great things for me. Although, seemingly, again too much of it, along with fruit seem to cause more dizziness and other candida overgrowth symptoms. Also trying a plethora of fermented foods; again some say avoid these with UC, but apparently helped many with Candida issues. Foods such as Sauerkraut,tempeh, coconut yogurt, Kimchi (had some issue with this so stopped as well as with pickles). Also told to avoid fat like avocado, flaxseed, chia, hemp seeds (for obvious issues with being to bulking to pass). However I have had a cucumber salad (no peel) mixed with avocado, sauerkraut, apple cider vinegar, and recently some cooked tempeh with somewhat good results. Include my flaxseed with oatmeal, again overall no issues. Dr. Klein's healing diet promotes, of course, high starchy carbs such as sweet potato, potato, etc. I did that for a while; had lots of blood after eating potatoes; somewhat mixed issues with sweet potatoes; although I continue to try to re-introduce them since they are supposed to help. also have tried anti-inflamatory options promoted to help my situation; although honestly intermittently due to not sure if those substances were making it worse. At one point or another tried Turmeric, Boswellia, L-gluatime, slippery elm, fennel, peppermint and others I can't recall right now. My other question is since the oatmeal in general seems to work pretty well but on occasion seems to cause some of the candida symptoms to arise again, should I be taking enzymes such as Gluten Ease and/or a digestive enzyme in general? on that subject, I had been taking probiotic supplements for years until I recently; discovered the obvious, that by sitting on the shelf or being transported etc;, most likely not much live strains left; hence the more fermented food option instead. Also, being that I am an avid gym person. it was very difficult to give that up based on the recommendation of said healing book to just let your body rest. So I did for a while lost about 30 pounds (I am 5"7; 45 years of age; got down to about 115 at one point and felt awful. Actually got extremely bad hemorrhoids and anal fissures from lack of activity. So I researched Vegan BCAA supplements and started to slowly begin training again, which helped tons. Feel so much better. But again, I struggle between the advice these other folks were telling me and how I am feeling now that I have included the No Bull amino acids and training. I know you are super busy, and not sure if you'll get around to my questions. If not, I totally understand. Just took a chance that you might see this one day soon and have some more insight for me. Regardless, I am so, so grateful for all you've done and continue to do. You have definitely been the premiere source for this new found knowledge for me, and for my family. Much thanks, Andy

  • I have been searching for a long time to find someone who distributes the facts without any sponsonship or ads. This seems like it can be the real deal, looking forward to watching everything on your website!
