Video Interview: Fredi Kronenberg Stanford School of Medicine on Women's Health and Alternative Medicine
Fredi Kronenberg Stanford School of Medicine
Fredi Kronenberg is a Stanford School of Medicine Physiologist with expertise in women's health and alternative medicine and is very involved in bringing healthy food and Information to hospitals and health professionals. Our video interview is in two parts below, and here are some highlights.
She mentions "there is a tremendous surge of interest in bringing healthy food to hospitals...however, a missing piece of the equation is that Doctors are not trained in Nutrition and Food."
She says that "what you eat affects gene expression so just because you have a particular genetic propensity doesn't mean that you will get that particular condition because you can, in fact, impact that by the food you eat, so it's really critical that doctors learn more about food."
"We know now that there are particular foods, for example, that help Cancer patients and many illnesses which are inflammatory-driven. There are certain foods that promote inflammation and certain foods that reduce inflammation...Tumeric (curcumin) is one of the most anti-inflammatory herbs and spices we know, and it's valuable for Cancer patients and other patients that have inflammatory-driven conditions."
Over the last 10 years, she has worked with Dr Andrew Weil in these areas, and they have also established a 2 1/2 day Annual Conference for Doctors, Nurses, and Health Care Providers which presents the latest research in nutrition and specific health conditions, and how food can prevent and treat conditions. She says, "why not use nutrition to control diabetes and cardiovascular disease first?" There are no donuts served at this conference, and the food is healthy.
More information is on their website at http://nutritionandhealthconf.org
In addition to this conference, she's working on a new initiative to bring in Chefs to Stanford University who can produce food that has the herbs and spices especially made for Cancer patients, create a conference and bring experts to it. She's looking for funders, and if you're interested, please contact her at fk11 (at) stanford (dot) edu

Dr Roizen and Mary Vincent - Napa, CA
Dr. Roizen, Institute Chair, Chief Wellness Officer
Wellness Institute Cleveland Clinic, founder of eleven companies, co-inventer of a drug recently approved by the FDA, and author of a series of highly popular #1 New York Times bestsellers, recently visited Napa, California to celebrate the California Walnut Harvest Festival and spoke on a variety of topics including US Health, Disease Reversal, Genes, and how the increase in chronic US Disease is affecting US Economic Competitiveness/ Jobs.
I videotaped Dr Roizen's complete presentation, and a portion of it is below for reference. Please note that since the presentation took place in the evening at a winery, the video is dark, but you can hear Dr. Roizen's important insights.
I've covered Dr Oz and Dr Roizen's great work before with Rocco the Cowboy Story and Video. Dr. Roizen was the 'Enforcer' and ensured Rocco ate healthfully and exercised regularly, and as a result, Rocco's heart disease was reversed by going Vegan.
Dr Roizen also states in the video that you affect genes and cancer by your food choices and the importance of meditation.
He also mentions the importance of Lifestyle Treatment for Breast and Prostate Cancer, and Studies show that Food Changes, Walking, Tobacco Avoidance, and Mediation reduced tumor size.
I also spoke with Dr Roizen and shared Gratitude Gourmet's mission, and he responded by saying that at the Cleveland Clinic it's impossible to find a piece of red meat.
Stay tuned for more videos and news from this event.
