Dr Anthony Chaffee Bats for the Inclusion of Carnivore Diet in Daily Life to Combat Chronic Diseases

Dr. Anthony Chaffee, a Neurosurgical Resident in Perth, Australia has been treating hundreds of people outside of his residency in the fight against chronic diseases, including blood pressure, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, autoimmune disorders, and even cardiac ailments. He advocates that a carnivore diet can not only reverse many of these ailments, but keep them fit and healthy without medication. 

Thousands of people across the world have now followed his advice, overcoming various chronic diseases and disorders along with helping people to combat obesity and excess fat from their bodies, all with just simple changes to their diet and lifestyle.

Dr Anthony Chaffee: From Sports to Medicine 

Dr. Anthony Chaffee is not just a doctor, but an athlete as well. In fact, he was a professional Rugby player before transitioning to work as a medical doctor. Selected as an All-American athlete in rugby, Dr Chaffee played professionally in America, England, and Canada for 10 years prior to medical school, having taken time off between his undergraduate and graduate degrees.  Asked why he made such a drastic change in careers he replied, “Well the plan was always to go to medical school, but I had opportunities with rugby that I felt I needed to take advantage of first.  After all, you can always go back to school, but you can’t always play professional sports.”

After moving on from professional sports and completing his MD, he has pursued his passion for the life sciences and bettering the lives of people around him in his clinical practice, community outreach, through his Podcast and talks on YouTube, as well as volunteering as a doctor in the refugee camps of Southern Bangladesh during the Rohingya refugee crisis; the largest humanitarian crisis in the World at the time. 

The Plant Free MD Podcast 

A keen observer, Dr Chaffee has identified new, scientifically based approaches to help people lose weight and treat chronic diseases naturally, without medication or diet pills.  In fact, most of his patients are able to come off of many of their medications, and return to a more healthy and active lifestyle.

Dr Chaffee also hosts the podcast “The Plant Free MD” with an associated Instagram account. Through the podcast, he educates the world about the positive impact of including meat in one’s diet and daily life. He also explains in detail about the harmful impact of fruits, grains, and vegetables on the human body, citing peer-reviewed studies and literature.

Dr Chaffee also believes that the Carnivore Diet helps people improve their condition and fitness level. Not only that, he has also debunked on his show, in interviews, and debates the longstanding myth that cardiovascular disease is correlated with meat based diets, high in saturated fat and cholesterol, showing that these are vital nutrients to the brain and body.

The Carnivore Diet  and the “Poison Theory of Chronic Disease”

Having studied Botany in University and beyond, Dr Anthony Chaffee learned that one of the main defenses a plant has to survive in nature is to form toxic compounds that can be poisonous to humans and other animals, and that this also applies to the vegetables, grains, and other plant based foods that we consume today.  We know of many of these compounds such as lectins, gluten, oxalates and so on, but apparently there are many thousands more, all of which can cause serious harm over time.  He argues that a strict avoidance of these compounds via a Carnivore diet is the healthiest way to live, and most effective way to heal from the injuries of these compounds, but that we should all at least consider reducing their consumption and return to eating more meat and animal products. 

Taking this further, Dr Chaffee argues that, “The so-called ‘chronic diseases’ of modern day medicine are not actually diseases per se, but in fact toxicities and malnutrition: toxic build-up of a species inappropriate diet, and a lack of appropriate, species specific nutrition.  In other words, we’re eating too many plants, and not enough meat.”  Because of this, he feels that the medical community should not approach these ailments in the traditional fashion, “We as doctors approach diseases as having cures, so when we see a new disease, we look for its cure.  However when dealing with poisons we may give an antidote or chelating agent to support the patient’s recovery, but most importantly, we remove the source of poisoning such as lead pipes, or what have you. So, if we are treating the symptoms and ramifications of say heart disease or type 2 diabetes, but ignoring the underlying agents that are the root cause of these disease processes, then we are doing our patients a disservice.  We sort of tried this by recommending people stay away from saturated fats and cholesterol, which was the right approach, but it just happened to be horribly wrong.”  This is because, as Dr Chaffee explains, new evidence has emerged showing decisively that what we believed about fat and cholesterol is basically backward, and that saturated animal fats and cholesterol are actually vital for healthy bodies, brains, hormones, and yes, hearts.  This is a recurrent theme in his videos, interviews, and on his Podcast, The Plant Free MD, and he calls this his, “Poison Theory of Chronic Disease.”

Though many athletes and fitness fanatics have switched to a carnivore diet to boost their performance based on his recommendations, most of his work is with those trying to recover from ailments or reverse disease. Dr. Chaffee has successfully shown that some of the most common health-related issues affecting people today such as obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, and even autoimmune disorders are actually not diseases but the result of improper dietary habits by his ability to reverse them using simple dietary changes, thus reinforcing his Poison Theory of Chronic Disease. This is because many people are not only lacking in vital nutrients only found in meat and animal products, which can lead to disease and developmental disorders, but that they can also be harmed by the toxic elements in plants that they naturally make in order to stop animals from eating them in nature.  This is why he contends that people should at least start to eat more meat and eliminate some of the worst offenders from the Plant Kingdom, such as sugar and grains, if not going to a full Carnivore diet.

In Conclusion 

Dr Anthony Chaffee has won several open debates with other doctors and experts in the field, arguing for the inclusion of meat in the diet, and even the exclusion of plant-based foods for optimal health and weight loss.  He has articulated his views clearly in several debates and interviews, citing scientific evidence and research, enabling him to even convert other doctors who had formerly advocated a vegan lifestyle. One of his recent debates was a live webcast with the Australian nutritional medicine group ACNEM, where Dr Chaffee, along with 2 other teammates, debated the merits and demerits of a Carnivore vs Vegan diet against 3 other panel members and respected clinicians.  It is his practice and hope that educating his patients and the population at large and having them follow his proven diet plan can keep them become fit and healthy, without constant check-ups or appointments, greatly reducing the overall cost and burden of medical expenditures, which is a growing problem in America and around the world.  But we think the most remarkable highlight in Dr Chaffee’s career thus far is that he hasn’t always stayed within the comforts of hospital medicine and private consultations, instead leaving his residency to volunteer in the refugee camps of Southern Bangladesh between 2017 and 2018 to help the more than 1 million Rohingya refugees escaping mass genocide in Myanmar in 2017, even though ISIS had a strong presence in the region at the time and was actively targeting and killing foreigners to the region; something that not many of his peers are willing or able to do.

Innovation Leads to Winning Smiles: Lebanese Dentist Dr. Mohammad Waizani Offers Insight Into the Science of Quality Veneers

mm

Published

on

Dr. Mohammad Waizani has developed a reputation for giving his patients the smile they deserve. His highly-sought after veneer procedure uses a microscope for more accurate and long-lasting results. Considered highly innovative in the dentistry world, his patients’ testimonials serve as proof of the procedure’s effectiveness.

We sat down with Dr. Waizani to gather further insight into the process of applying veneers and learn more about the types of cases that benefit from this smile-saving technique. 

Are there any preconditions to receiving veneers? 

The primary condition for receiving veneers is having what we call a “normal bite.” There are many different kinds of bites, including open and closed bites. Veneers can be applied to normal bites. When we do veneers for normal bites we try to remove the minimum amount of the tooth to retain as much of the tooth’s original structure as possible. This also helps to reduce instability or sensitivity, as well as ensuring that the color will be natural and not appear fake. When you think about it, if you remove a little bit of the tooth, then the ceramic layer we place on after that can also be thin. The thinner the layers, the less fake and bulky the tooth will look. 

How does the procedure work? 

In the first session, we prepare the tooth and take measurements. This procedure takes around two hours to two and a half hours. When we finish, we put the temporary on the teeth. This offers protection from sensitivity and allows the patient to go about their daily life, and walk with a smile on their face. 

After one week, the veneers are finished in the lab and the lab sends them to our office. Once we receive the veneers, we can proceed with gluing them on. Usually we do the upper jaw alone and the lower jaw alone so the full smile needs around two weeks from start to finish. 

Where does the microscope come in and why is it so important? 

We employ microscopes in the procedure, to reduce the amount of surface enamel typically removed in the installation process. Using a microscopic approach, we are able to reduce the typical width of the removed layer from between 0.8 and 1.5 millimeters to  a mere 0.2 to 0.3 millimeters, keeping teeth stronger and healthier. The less we remove,  the less damage can occur and the teeth continue to look great for a longer period of time. 

How long do veneers last? 

Like the teeth you are born with, veneers, when properly cared for, don’t have an expiration date. As long as the patient cares for their veneers the same way they would with their natural teeth, they are a long term cosmetic solution for improving your smile while maintaining a very realistic and natural aesthetic. 

Are there any age requirements for veneers?  

We never do veneers for anyone under the age of 18. When we do veneers, or any preparation for veneers, the teeth should be fully matured so that’s why 18 and above is the perfect age. There are also the wisdom teeth to consider but that’s a different story. We don’t have to wait for wisdom teeth to apply veneers. 

What are some of the reasons your patients choose to receive veneers? 

There are three overarching cases where we recommend veneers: shape, color, or both. Some people have a good shape to their face and jaw, but they don’t like the color of their teeth or vice versa. In some cases it is both the color and shape that the patient wants to improve. If they have a normal bite and we just want to change the color, we will remove a minimal amount of the tooth. If we have a normal bite but we want to change the shape, we will remove more. 

Are there different types of veneers? 

Dental veneers come in many different forms. Dr. Waizani’s natural veneers make use of porcelain molds for more natural looking and natural feeling teeth. Porcelain contains particles particularly similar to those found in organic human teeth, allowing light to pass through in a similar manner. Where alternative veneer materials reflect light, porcelain’s translucent quality allows for artificial veneers that are virtually indistinguishable from normal tooth enamel, in addition to being more resistant to staining and chipping.
