Recommended Reading: The Pillars of Health 

The Pillars of Health, by plant-based activist John Pierre, was chosen by Dr. Neal Barnard, president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, as a “favorite read.”1   Pierre addresses wellness in four parts, or “pillars”: nutrition, mind, motion, and compassion. The pillar of nutrition describes the problems associated with processed foods and added oils through simple yet thorough and engaging explanations. 

 

Nutritional and lifestyle recommendations are given for improved mental and physical health. Some of these recommendations include exercising both our mental and physical muscles, and examining our patterns, habits, self-talk, and damaging thought patterns. These are only a few of the pieces of mental and physical health advice offered, among many throughout the book.  

 

The last pillar, compassion, takes a look at wellness from a unique and important angle, discussing both the challenges and the benefits of living a compassionate life. Pierre says,

Throughout this book, I’ve focused on sharing nutritional, brain-building, and fitness enhancing modalities. The final pillar of health is perhaps the most important because it holds the key elements that support and reinforce the rest.” We can eat the most healthful diet and exercise consistently, but if we allow the negative energies of anger, jealousy, hatred, and greed to destroy our spirit, then we—and our planet—have little chance of thriving. This is why the pillar of compassion is so critical.

A PlantPure Testimonial: Eloise Chocalas

The story of Eloise’s plant-based transition is highly unusual because throughout her life, quite a few physicians suggested she look into a vegan diet before she actually made the change. Her story begins in the 1980s when she was working in Silicon Valley and was a self-described type A personality. At 122 lbs., she looked healthy on the outside, but had high cholesterol.  Interestingly, her physician recommended that she change over to a vegetarian diet to control her cholesterol. At the time, Eloise did not take his advice, but later wished she could turn back the clock to transition to a plant-based lifestyle much sooner.
