Neal Barnard MD Discusses Digestive Health

Human Digestive Tract

If you've been searching the Internet for relief from hemorrhoids, GERD, constipation, or other gastrointestinal disorder, you may be interested in viewing the below 15-minute session featuring Neal Barnard, MD. Dr. Barnard gives a general overview of how eating a diet based on a wide variety of whole grains, beans, fruits, vegetables, and some nuts/seeds restores optimal digestive health. This session is just one of 18 sessions from the Physicians Committee's Nutrition Education Curriculum which can be used for educational purposes. The set of DVDS address different topics and are produced and made available by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

The conditions Dr. Barnard covers in this video are listed below.

  • GERD - Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Irritable bowel
  • Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis
  • Gallstones
  • Colon cancer
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Constipation
  • Hiatal hernia

Examining human anatomy and physiology reveals that our anatomy is far better suited for a purely plant food diet. When we deviate too far from this ideal — our health suffers — and chronic disease, obesity, disability, and death ensue. The digestive conditions listed above may present different symptoms, yet they share the same etiology -- our body is telling us that we're eating the wrong type of diet! When we replace meat, dairy, refined oils/sugars, and processed food with whole, natural plant foods, we give our body a chance to heal. You will be surprised how much better you feel when you remove the disease-promoting foods from your plate!
