Review

Those who harbor an image of vegans as sickly, pasty-faced creatures who are protein deficient need only look at Julieanna Hever who has written books on nutrition, maintained a household with two small children, and is the poster person for a healthy lifestyle. Hever, who calls herself The Plant-Based Dietitian has used her boundless energy to partner with filmmaker Jesse Pomeroy to create To Your Health, a 53-minute film espousing the benefits of a whole-food, low-fat, plant-based diet. The ultimate goal of this film is to introduce an audience that may be unaware that the best medicine they can take is that which ends up on the end of their forks. Medical procedures, pills and treatments may cure symptoms but they do nothing to address what causes disease and less to prevent the onset of what, through a whole food, plant-based diet, can readily be avoided. Hever, not content in relying only on her knowledge gained working on her Master of Science Degree in Nutrition from California State University, Northridge, embarked on a 3000-mile journey across America to elicit the views of some of the leading proponents of plant-based nutrition in the preparation of this film. Her co-stars in the film are 10 individuals, seven of whom are doctors, who agreed to be interviewed. All the interviewees are strong advocates of a plant-based lifestyle to promote good health. The doctors present convincing arguments to demolish the common myths surrounding protein, calcium requirements, and the need for supplements. The film also looks to the future emphasizing that businesses like Veggie Grill, a restaurant chain, are helping to make a plant-based diet more popular. Amazing to the viewer is that Hever and Pomeroy have told this big plant-based story in less than an hour. They have introduced some of the prominent new wave of doctors who feel the best medicine is in our food. Pomeroy manages to capture Hever's enthusiasm and personality to make the film engaging. --Vegetarians in Paradise

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, interesting and informative September 6, 2011
Join Julieanna Hever as she takes viewers on a journey across the nation to meet some of the leading authorities advocating a plant-strong, meat-free, dairy-free and oil-free diet.

This video introduces the benefits of changing one's diet...and also presents information about the dietary choices that contribute to many of the diseases that plague so many in Western civilization, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer and more.

Julieanna is engaging and friendly throughout the video. In fact, although it is obvious that she is passionate about her choice to adopt a vegan lifestyle, at no point does she make the viewer uncomfortable. The viewer is allowed to "check out" the information and make his or her own decision. And that is as it should be.

I highly recommend this video, and also recommend "Forks Over Knives" for those seeking additional information on the topic of choosing the proper foods to reverse disease and improve health!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Truth Shall Set You Free... October 28, 2011
To truly live a vibrant and authentic life one must honor the sanctity of optimum wellness. The value you place on your health is a reflection of your food choices.

Scientists have stretched hypotheses and technology to ridiculous lengths to dissect individual nutrients in their quests to discover and define optimal health. This exhaustive approach is a losing proposition.

This delightful film dispels the myths and glaring misinformation we have been conditioned to believe as truths for the sake of profits. The value of food ought not be judged by its advertising budget, its novelty or any other despicable mode in the interest of capitalism.

Hever and Pomeroy cleverly piece together the fragmented puzzle of nutrition that has permeated nearly every aspect of our society. The energetic tandem criss-crossed the country to interview an all-star ensemble of plant-based, whole foods authorities and experts to discern the truth.

The truth is we have been duped by the highly politicized food policies and agendas. The secret to optimum wellness is the daily consumption of plant-based whole foods. Our attempts to analyze and alter the laws of nature have compromised our awareness - and it shows. The alarming levels of obesity and the proliferation of chronic and degenerative diseases are directly linked to the Standard American Diet and our penchant for convenience.

Hever, Pomeroy and the esteemed participants in this film convey in an entertaining and comprehensible fashion the mountains of daunting information and data inherent to the field of nutrition. It is likely that you will learn volumes more from this short documentary than you did in school.

This film redefines the symbiotic relationship between health and nutrition.

We have watched several very informative, intellegent movies pertaining to the healthy lifestyle. This is not one of them. Although this woman interviewed many brilliant people, the information was predictable, shallow and uninspiring. Watch "Food Matters," "Forks Over Knives" or "Eating" if you want to be encouraged to eat healthfully.

After meeting the author at the annual Health Expo in Woodland Hills, Ca I bought this DVD and her "Plant based Nutrition for Dummies" book. This DVD is cheerful and full of good information. I've been Vegan/vegetarian for decades so I knew most of the information in it but I use it to introduce the subject to people new to the subject/lifestyle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye opening November 8, 2011
By Paul S
As a complete neophyte to the plant based world, I found "To Your Health" to be an eye opening experience. Far from being a preachy, soap box standing collection of rhetoric, the facts are presented in a collection of light hearted, and entertaining interviews with most of the leading lights in the movement. For me, this made the information easy to digest (pun intended) without feeling I was being beaten over the head with statistics. I would highly recommend this DVD for anyone interested in learning about plant based nutrition, and for the wisdom and insight provided by the experts featured.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'll Drink To That ! December 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a Great little documentary that introduces you to the health benefits of eating as close to nature as possible. Her name is Julieanna Hever and she is how healthy looks, sounds and acts! She obviously walks the talk and inspires you to follow. You become captivated by the film through the message in her vibrant smile and enthusiasm. She has many informative, short online videos that compliment this film. The experts she interviews are just that, experts!
They each also have books and documentaries which delve much further into this lifestyle choice.
Food is mood, and the mood after listening to the message of this film will be one of excited optimism. Those who say; change a light bulb and save the planet are the same people selling the light bulbs! This go green message (literally) is however very real and will not only save the planet and your life, but more importantly will transform your quality of life.
Healthy not only feels different but tastes different to. Some healthy tastes, take some getting used to but are worth the effort. I just think of Julieanna's vibrant smile, and it tastes Grrrrrrrrrrrrreat !!!!
