Daphne had the fortune of meeting Dr. Ganu at the International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine in Washington, DC this fall. Dr.Ganu had traveled to the conference to learn more about the value of nutritional intervention to prevent and reverse chronic disease. You may have heard his incredible interview on the “Exam Room Podcast”.
On today's livestream Dr. Ganu shared how he spent the last 20 years navigating the healthcare system and managing rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and lupus. His chronic diseases and the medications used to treat them took a toll on his health. Earlier this year his wife had the fortune of hearing an interview with Dr. Monica Aggarwal on the Exam Room podcast where she shared how she managed to reverse her RA by adopting a plant based diet. Dr. Ganu was encouraged by her story and adopted a plant based diet in October 2021. In January 2022 Dr. Ganu switched completely to a whole food plant based diet and experienced dramatic improvements in his joint inflammation and pain. Over the ensuing months he has managed to significantly reduce the medications he needs to treat his condition and he is now pain free.
Now he wants to share what he has learned with others.
Dr. Ganu wants to bring this knowledge to others by establishing a center of influence related to lifestyle management and research in Ghana. Similar to what we observe in the US, many Africans are unnecessarily suffering morbidity and mortality related to chronic disease which could be mitigated with the knowledge Dr. Ganu gained related to whole food plant based nutrition.
We are blessed to have met Dr. Ganu and look forward to finding ways to support his new mission. Please take time to listen or watch this amazing professor share his story. We will share more about how to support Dr. Ganu's work in an upcoming post
Until next time, be well.
