His Story: Mr.Powell is Certified in Plant-Based Nutrition through Cornell University, in partnership with the T. Colin Campbell Foundation, as well as being a Certified Instructor for theMcDougall Starch Solution Program: A scientifically based program designed and successfully used by Dr. John & Mary McDougall for nearly forty years to help patients regain their lost health and appearance.
Ed himself has experienced how changing to a Starch Based diet with the addition of Fruits & Vegetables can affect your overall health and well-being. After attending a McDougall Advanced Study Program at the McDougall Health and Medical Center in Santa Rosa, CA ( February-March 2013) to find an alternative to standard medical practices for the treatment of High Blood Pressure & Cholesterol he found Food Therapy instead of Drug Therapy to be the solution. He experienced the results of hundreds of others who attended and follow a Starch-Based Whole Food diet and Way of Life: medication free while achieving optimal health and vitality. In his time there, he was educated by Dr. McDougall and others in basic nutrition, plant-based nutrition, starch-based diet, chronic diseases and current medical research. He says, “This program was a life changing experience that allowed me to take control of my Health and my Life, for the better, with a Starch Based Whole Food Way of Life and all with little to no medications, Delicious Foods and No Hunger!!”
Also, while there he learned how other attendees health had improved. Type-2 diabetics blood sugar levels were normal within a few days and some were completely off medications, arthritis patients were pain free, the average reduction in blood cholesterol was 15% in a week and almost all experienced an average weight loss of 3-5 pounds per week. He says, "The results are remarkable, and now I know why."
It's about the food and the healing it provides when you follow a Starch Based Whole Food Way of Life. After this life changing experience, and his new found health, he became passionate about health and nutrition, got his education and made the career change to Nutrition, Health and Wellness. It is now his desire to share his passion with others so they too can achieve optimal health in their life!
