Being diagnosed with a chronic disease can be overwhelming. Today, chronic diseases affect nearly sixty percent of adults in the United States. However, there are ways to manage or reverse its effects. Comprehensive lifestyle changes can prevent and even reverse many chronic diseases common in the Western world. It is proven that one can avoid chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure by making healthy decisions daily through a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Food can be a powerful tool when it comes to managing our health. While everyone needs to eat, the quality of our food and lifestyle choices are crucial for living a long and healthy life. The book The Future of Medicine: To Prevent and Reverse Chronic Diseases by Dr. Daphine Kaniaru, MD, DipABLM, shares how we can control our health through simple and practical lifestyle changes. Dr. Kaniaru talks about her book and offers health tips for everybody during her radio interview on Kate Delaney’s radio syndicated radio program America Tonight.

Journey to Health and Nutrition

Dr. Kaniaru is a physician specializing in family and lifestyle medicine. She is passionate about preventing and reversing chronic diseases through whole-food, plant-based nutrition, particularly diabetes prevention and reversal through plant-based foods. Dr. Kaniaru has always been interested in the prevention of diseases. Growing up in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, she was taught how lifestyle affects one’s health. This helped develop her interest in going into medicine at a young age.

In The Future of Medicine, Dr. Kaniaru shared that her diet has been whole food plant-based for 14 years and recently became oil-free real food plant-based. According to her, when she decided to be plant-based, she chose to eat unprocessed or minimally processed plant foods. Dr. Kaniaru noted that everyone must focus on prevention, which is possible for many conditions, such as lifestyle diseases.  

“…I wrote the book because we are really not, um, having lasting solutions to these problems. Because, again, the solution should be lifestyle, not medications. Because once people get on this medication, they don’t get off of them. They don’t get off of them because it’s like a Band-Aid. It’s a Band-Aid to the problem. But if we can attack the root cause of these diseases, then we can reverse them and get these patients off their medications,” Dr. Kaniaru explained.

A Healthy Body Requires a Healthy Diet

The Future of Medicine highlights that people do not need medications to treat lifestyle-induced illnesses. The treatment is to initiate lifestyle changes and resolve the problem so they no longer require drugs and procedures.

On America Tonight, Dr. Kaniaru cited studies and statistics showing the alarming effects of unhealthy food choices. She encouraged listeners to choose healthier foods such as whole grains, fiber-enriched foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, and fewer animal products.

“And this is going to help us to stay healthy because these plant foods have very powerful compounds called antioxidants, phytochemicals, and fiber. This helps to fight disease. But also they’re full of vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates, protein, and good fats and water. So this is what we need. This should be the foundation of our diet. And they must be unprocessed or minimally processed,” Dr. Kaniaru said.

The Future of Medicine will revolutionize how you view your health and teach you how to take charge of it. The highly informative book empowers its readers with the power they have to control their health and prevent and reverse chronic diseases. It is a book for everyone, not just those on medication. With Dr. Kaniaru’s book, you can live without disease and medicine.
