(NaturalNews) "Chow Down," aptly tagged as "a film with heart," has become available on Premium NaturalNews TV. It is a tenacious documentary about three real people with serious heart disease and diabetes who have been told by their doctors they "can't get better." This film takes an exciting course when they tell the doctors, "Think again!"
Meet Charles, John, and Garnet as they say "No" to pills and procedures
Charles, John, and Garnet set out to "buck the system of pills and procedures." It was clear drama would set into their lives because shifting diet to avoid death is hard enough. It is even more challenging when a whole system is dead-set against you. Yet, "Chow Down" shows you there is one thing you can never count out, and that is the motivation of three people who want to live:
Charles, 45, devoted husband and father of two, is shocked to learn not only that he has cardiovascular disease but that the blockages in his heart are so severe that his surgeon refuses to operate. But Charles is a fighter and he'll do whatever it takes to be around to see his kids grow up.
John fears having his chest cut open for a bypass he believes is a band-aid, not a cure. But his family thinks he'll die without the surgery.
Garnet, a do-it-all working mom, lands in the hospital with type-2 diabetes. She fears her regimen of medications will lead her down a grim path to dialysis and early death
Just like Charles, John, and Garnet, millions of Americans are sick and they're tired of the pills and operations.
Could you avoid it all if someone told you how?
What if you could avoid the pills and operations, but nobody's willing to tell you how? And, if heart disease, the number one killer in America, can be stopped and often reversed with diet, why aren't people like Charles routinely given this information before being sent to the operating room?
"Chow Down" exposes the three factors that fatally impact our country's health: the medical community's allegiance to the status quo, the government's allegiance to the food industry, and Americans' allegiance to cheap, convenient food.
Beyond chowing down on all natural foods, Charles, John, and Garnet inspire us all to chew on a serious problem: what do we do when the system's support for our health has collapsed?
In "Chow Down," it takes cleverness and an "outfox-them-before-they-outfox-you" ethos, but this film with heart could restore your life.

Root, root, root for the refusal to accept the grim prognosis
Charles refuses to accept his doctor's grim prognosis. With the help of Dr. Esselstyn who is the director of one of the longest running peer-reviewed scientific studies showing that a plant-based diet can reverse even late-stage heart disease, Charles resolves to not only treat his disease but to reverse it.
We all know it's easy to make resolutions, but sticking to them is the hard part. In Charles' case, it could be the difference between life and death. Root for Charles as he tries not only to save his life but also to end the cycle of cardiovascular disease in his family.
With lighthearted animation, piercing expert interviews and a feisty attitude, "Chow Down" is the moving story of the success you can achieve when you rewrite the recipe for a healthy life.
