After four years of medical school and seven years of surgical training, my disdain for Western medicine intensified over time. From quadruple cardiac bypasses to gastric bypasses, doubt set in that we were actually helping these patients.
My attraction to surgery stems from my gratification that I “fixed” a patient’s ailment. However, my average patient has a BMI of greater than 30 and is afflicted with diabetes, coronary artery disease and hyperlipidemia. An epiphany struck me one day as I was seeing a patient with poorly controlled diabetes and multiple admissions for abscesses that I was hardly fixing anything. I no longer wanted to serve as a firefighter who can extinguish fire; I wanted to prevent fires.
When I stumbled upon whole food plant based nutrition, my curiosity imploded and my self-learning has taught me something I never learned in medical school or residency. Fueled by my burning desire to better serve my patients, I have started dedicating time to educate myself.
