  • About Plant-based Docs

     

    Working together, we can usher in sustainable human health, sustainable healthcare systems, and a sustainable world! 

    Bev Wium is a registered practitioner as a Plant-based Doc

    PlantBasedDocs is a searchable, global directory of physicians, clinicians and allied health professionals who understand that a pill for every ill is not the answer. Instead they are embracing the nutritional science that overwhelmingly supports the efficacy of whole food, plant-based nutrition and its ability to prevent, suspend, and, often, even reverse the most devastating chronic, degenerative diseases.

    This directory has been developed as a service to healthcare practitioners who are committed to identifying and eradicating the cause of disease, through the targeted use of dietary and lifestyle intervention. And as a service also to the general public this directory enables individuals to locate physicians, therapists, dietitians, health coaches, or other wellness professionals who have been trained in the power of preventive, nutritional medicine.

    PlantBasedDocs.com is a division of The Plantrician Project. As a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation, The Plantrician Project serves as a galvanizing force designed to reach physicians and healthcare professionals around the world with multi-faceted initiatives that educate, equip and empower them and their patients, paving the way for a shift to a plant-based dietary lifestyle.

    Addressing Alarming Chronic Disease Trends & Global Sustainability Concerns

    Globally, we are facing a looming pandemic of chronic disease that carries with it incalculable consequences. The same can be said about many of our most pressing global sustainability issues—including our ability to feed what soon will be nine billion people on the face of the earth.

    There is Good News!

    The cause and cure for both is one and the same: our food choices. Our toxic western diet is the cause. Humanity’s shift to a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet is the solution.  The Plantrician Project is helping to lead the way!

    We Know that Physicians and Healthcare Professionals Hold the Key

    People look to their physicians and healthcare professionals as trusted resources for honest, dietary recommendations. Individuals may read books and watch films that espouse the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle; but, until physicians and other clinicians become educated leaders and enthusiastically promote patient adoption, this dietary shift on a broad scale will be elusive.

    Our Mission

    • Sustainable human health.
    • Sustainable healthcare systems, helping to ensure solvent nations.
    • Sustainable natural resources and a food system that will meet the needs of an exponentially growing worldwide population.

    Jointhe PLANiT-forward movement

    The urgency to care for our planet and spend less money is apparent

    Let us offer a better place to live for future generations

    A lighter footprint will matter in 100 years

    The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago

    The second best time is now

    Plant your seed of action – pay it forward

    Every small seed grows and is felt by our planet Mother Earth

    Let’s be Birds of Play and PLANiT-forward

     

         What PLANiT-forward asks of you:

    1. Choose one new action (or non-action) for the week which you believe will help our planet and sustainability in any way – this is your agreement with yourself:  MY AGREEMENT PLANiT-forward = MAP.
    2. Forward this email along with your MAP,  to me and to 12 other people – perhaps include one person in another country and/or far away and preferably refrain from blind copying the recipients – keep it open – but clean up previous email addresses (Please do not misuse email addresses)
    3. Each week add a new MAP to your existing MAPs and share with your 13 fellow “PLANiT-forward” friends; your MAP may give others new ideas and remind them to send out their new MAPs.

     

    Note: if the 12 people whom I have sent to, forward to 12 others each, that makes 144 others who PLANiT-forward;144 x 12 = 1728; 1728 x 12 = 20736; 20736 x 12 = 248 832 and so on – Mother Earth WILL notice – every week – let’s have no fall-out – keep it up – every MAP counts!

     

    Ideas of what you may choose to do (or not do) each week – your MAP:

    • NO longer buy water/drinks in plastic bottles
    • Plant a tree
    • Become a mostly vegan Organicflexitarian – it takes 16 pounds of grain to make 1 pound of beef!
    • Remember to take my own bags when I go shopping
    • Avoid buying produce which is packaged in plastic or Styrofoam – shop at the market or greengrocer
    • Re-use plastic and Styrofoam packaging – use as seeds trays etc
    • Use less detergents for house/car cleaning and clean less often
    • Gradually convert my credit card balance into a savings account and no longer buy on credit
    • Pack my dishwasher fully before using it
    • Set up recycling bins/boxes in my home
    • Save the money I was going to use to buy that new lounge suite, coat, jewellery, perfume…
    • Stop buying things I don’t need: when I buy anything – ask myself – what will I do with this item when I am finished with it  – where will it go – is it re-usable or biodegradable?
    • Use natural and biodegradable detergents, body lotions, soaps and shampoos
    • Start a compost heap/device for all of my peels and un-used fresh produce
    • Wear clothing more than once if possible before washing
    • Cut my shower time by one third
    • Plant one new herb in a pot or in my garden
    • Start sprouting my own seeds to grow my own sprouts for salads – so easily done!
    • Dig a small patch to start a herb/vegetable garden
    • Buy a book on how to start an organic vegetable garden – whether in pots or a bigger area (Jane’s Delicious Garden by Jane Griffiths is an excellent choice in South Africa)
    • Give away clutter and things I no longer use – clothes, shoes, materials, books, DVD’s…

  • Wonder jy of daardie soet, wit poeiertjie gesond is? (artificial sweeteners)

    Wonder jy of daardie soet, wit poeiertjie in jou koffie werklik gesond is?
    (The raw questions and replies are also published and written in English in Organicflexitarian, on page 101 - titled: Sweeteners - Diet Nothing.)

    Beeld - 19 January 2011

    Gevaarlik soet of skadelose plesier?

    Die lepels suiker in hul koppie koffie is een van die eerste luukshede wat verslankers uit hul lewe sny. Dié wat nie bitter koffie kan sluk nie, reik met dankbaarheid na kunsmatige versoeters, wat aspartaam bevat. Die soet poeiertjies of pilletjies troos jou soettand, maar sommige bly wonder of dit nie dalk hul gesondheid kan knou nie.
    By ’n onlangse inligtingsessie wat deur Canderel aangebied is, is daar verduidelik hoekom aspartaam veilig is.
    Voordat enige kos aan die mark bekend gestel word, moet dit ’n aantal toetse slaag, het me. Leigh-Ann Silber, ’n geregistreerde dieetkundige, by die inligtingsessie gesê.
    “Die veiligheid van die kos moet deur ’n reeks dier- en mensstudies bewys word. Uitgebreide wetenskaplike navorsing het kunsmatige versoeters en aspartaam se veiligheid bewys. Die veiligheid daarvan is in meer as 200 wetenskaplike studies gedokumenteer.”
    Die bevindings van ’n omvattende studie deur tien navorsers oor die veiligheid van aspartaam is in 2007 gepubliseer. Die navorsers het vorige studies oor aspartaam-veiligheid krities ondersoek en tot die gevolgtrekking gekom dat daar geen bewyse is dat aspartaam skadelike nagevolge in die liggaam kan hê nie.

    Aspartaam is orals
    Die kunsmatige versoeter is volgens mnr. Jason Frichol, hoof van bemarking by Fore Good, verspreider van Canderel, een van die hoofbestanddele in meer as 6?000 produkte wêreldwyd, insluitend sommige jogurt, koeldrank, aartappelskyfies en medisyne.
    Aspartaam is al omstrede sedert dit in die 1970’s in die VSA vir menslike gebruik goedgekeur is. Dit is weer die laaste paar jaar deur negatiewe publisiteit getref nadat ’n reeks “mites” per e-pos die rondte gedoen het. Frichol sê die interessantste mites wat hy al gehoor het, is dat “aspartaam gate in ’n mens se brein veroorsaak” en dat “aspartaam ’n biologiese wapen is wat in groot hoeveelhede in die lug gespuit word”.
    “In die vroeë 1990’s het mense alles wat hulle op die internet of e-posse gelees het vir soetkoek opgeëet omdat daar min bewustheid was van geloofwaardige bronne,” sê hy.
    “Kundiges het die e-pos-mites ondersoek en bevind die individu daarvoor verantwoordelik was nie ’n wetenskaplike nie. Die mites is ook deur erkende internasionale liggame en verenigings onwaar bewys.”

    Gesond of nie?
    Daar is ook al gefluister dat kunsmatige versoeters kanker kan veroorsaak. Silber en Frichol hou vol dit is ’n mite, maar prof. Michael Herbst wil hom nie so sterk daaroor uitspreek nie. Herbst werk voltyds as navorser vir die Kankervereniging van Suid-Afrika (Kansa) en is die uitvoerende bestuurder van die vereniging se advokatuur.
    Volgens Herbst is Kansa tans besig met laboratoriumtoetse oor aspartaam en ander kunsmatige versoeters. Hy het Kansa se amptelike verklaring oor kunsmatige versoeters verskaf.
    Die verklaring lui Kansa is bewus van die teenstrydige menings en internasionale debat tussen kundiges oor die veiligheid van kunsmatige versoeters. Kansa gee geen spesifieke mening nie, maar om onsekerheid te help takel is die vereniging besig met studies oor die veiligheid van vyf verskillende versoeters.
    Die bevindings sal op Kansa se webwerf (www.cansa.org.za) en in ’n relevante navorsingstydskrif bekend gemaak word sodra dit gereed is.
    Me. Bev Wium, ’n voedingskonsultant en sjef, het ’n sterk mening oor kunsmatige versoeters.
    “As jou gesondheid vir jou kosbaar is, los kunsmatige versoeters. Ek dink dit is heel moontlik dat die skokkende stories en ‘mites’ wat ’n mens oor aspartaam hoor greintjies waarheid kan bevat.”
    Wium beveel aan dat haar diabetiese pasiënte eerder Agave-nektar gebruik in plaas van versoeters.
    “Agave-nektar is ’n heuningagtige stroop wat al in antieke tye deur die Asteke gebruik is. Dit word nou geloof as ’n nuwe, gesonde alternatief vir suiker. Die nektar is afkomstig van die blou agave-plant wat ook gebruik word om tequila te maak.”

    Wat van verslankers?
    Silber meen kunsmatige versoeters speel ’n belangrike rol tydens die verslankingsproses.
    “Kunsmatige versoeters sorg dat kos lekker proe vir verslankers terwyl hul algehele kilojoule-inname minder is.”
    Aangesien vetsug en tipe 2-diabetes in Suid-Afrika aan die toeneem is, word kunsmatige versoeters al hoe gewilder, sê Frichol. “Dit het ’n positiewe impak op mense se lewens.”
    Wium meen egter kunsmatige versoeters is nie die antwoord vir verslankers nie.
    “As jy wil verslank, eet natuurlike, verkieslik organiese kos, veral baie groen blaarkosse en groente. Beperk jou inname van dierprodukte – dit moenie meer wees as 10% van jou daaglikse dieet nie,” sê sy.
    Me. Lila Bruk, ’n geregistreerde dieetkundige, moedig haar pasiënte aan om oormatige gebruik van aspartaam en ander kunsmatige versoeters te vermy.
    “Ek beveel eerder klein bietjies gewone suiker aan. Die rede is dat kunsmatige versoeters jou nie gewoond maak aan ’n minder soet smaak nie, dus bly jy hunker na soetigheid.”

    Wat is aspartaam?
    Aspartaam is per ongeluk in 1965 deur James Schlatter, ’n navorser, ontdek.
    Schlatter het in sy laboratorium die middel waarmee hy besig was op sy hande gemors. In gedagte het hy sy vinger afgelek om ’n stuk papier op te tel en die middel se soet smaak ontdek.
    ’n Versoeter soos Canderel kry sy soet smaak van aspartaam en kaliumasesulfaam (Ace-K). Aspartaam bestaan uit twee aminosure wat aanmekaar geskakel word en ’n soet smaak tot gevolg het. “Dié twee aminosure kom voor in ’n groot verskeidenheid ander voedselsoorte wat proteïen bevat, soos vleis, eiers en suiwelprodukte,” verduidelik Silber. Ace-K is ’n wit, reuklose poeier wat nie deur die liggaam opgeneem word nie. Dit word onveranderd deur die niere uitgeskei.
    Aspartaam word in die liggaam afgebreek in drie komponente: aspartiese suur, fenielalanien en ’n klein hoeveelheid metanol.
    “Mense wat ly aan ’n skaars genetiese siekte, fenielketonuria, se liggame kan nie fenielalanien behoorlik afbreek nie. Dié mense moet hul inname van fenielalanien beperk en daarom word die teenwoordigheid van die bestanddeel op produkte met aspartaam, ook Canderel, aangedui,” voeg Frichol by.
