The Empty Medicine Cabinet by Dustin Rudolph
Pharmacist Dustin Rudolph’s The Empty Medicine Cabinet is a straightforward, fact-based book which explains the positive benefits a plant-based diet can have on our health. Dustin discusses the medical studies which show that a plant-based diet can prevent and reverse illness more effectively than pills. Cases include heart disease, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune diseases, obesity, and even cancer. Citing doctors McDougall, Barnard, Fuhrman, and Esselstyn, Dustin presents evidence that a plant-based diet is a healthy diet. The Empty Medicine Cabinet walks readers through case studies of real patients who have healed their bodies from illness through a completely plant-based diet. The evidence is stunning.
In addition to the powerful medical evidence showing the healing effects from eliminating animal products, Dustin helps demystify the gluten-free craze. What does it really mean to follow a gluten-free diet and who should consider it? There is an excellent explanation of gluten, wheat allergies, and the autoimmune dysfunction known as celiac disease.
