“Let food by thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates

The healthcare system in our country is broken.  We pay more for healthcare than any country in the world and yet our healthcare ranks near 50th in performance.  Rather than focus on prevention and cure, the focus seems to be on treatment because that is what ends up being more profitable…for everyone other than the patients involved. A jumbled mix of corporations, doctors, hospitals, insurance companies, and the failed attempts of our government to really do anything positive about it. It is really a deplorable situation.  We can bemoan what is going on and try to engage in the insurmountable task of fixing the present system.  Or we can instead put our energies into building a new paradigm.  One that provides real, straightforward answers to health issues and offers a path to prevention and cure as opposed to just expensive and often ineffective treatment.  We have received a large dose of hope recently here in the Las Vegas area with the opening of the Doctor Allen Wellness and Medical Center in Henderson, a whole foods, plant-based approach to preventing and reversing diseases.

Dr. Evan Allen has twenty-two years experience practicing primary care medicine and has extensive experience in handling chronic diseases. He is an in internationally recognized and award-winning Family Physician. He is able to share life-changing insights from his clinical experience combined with the latest scientific research to help patients prevent and reverse diseases naturally.  The Doctor Allen Wellness Center is the plant-based part of Medical Center and they share methods that will teach patients how anyone can have increased energy and vitality while maintaining or losing weight based on their specific needs.  Their goal is to prevent and manage many chronic diseases without the use of costly medical procedures, pharmaceuticals, and fad diets.  Their membership and seminars will provide a comprehensive way to get your health back on track.  Membership will give patients access to Dr. Allen with appointments scheduled within 24 hours as well as direct access by cell phone and email. They provide medical supervision to diminish any adverse reaction during titration therapies and discontinuation of medications.  This is a wonderful approach to prevention and cure, the way that healthcare should operate.

Membership will also include regular “Regain Your Health” seminars at the Wellness Center that will help get you on track and start the path to a healthy and trim lifestyle free from needless medications and keep you out of the hospital.  They will have cooking demos and personal nutrition guidance with the assistance of nutrition and food specialist Vincenzo Granata.  Dr. Allen, his wife and Wellness Founder/Director Rachel Boyle, and Vincenzo Granata are all plant-based and this is a very important part of what makes this Wellness Center unique and special. They understand eating plant-based and the conscious lifestyle because they are living it and have seen the personal benefits of doing so in their own lives.  They understand what we need and how we can maximize our personal health using a whole foods, plant-based approach that is cruelty free, eco-friendly, and proven effective.  The success stories of this approach to healthcare have already been remarkable.

SInce moving to a vegan, plant-based lifestyle almost seven years ago, I have not had much need to go to the doctor other than getting some blood work done every year or two as part of a physical.  I know that I can control much of this through my lifestyle of eating and exercise and I see the benefits each and every day.  I feel and look as though I am getting younger all of the time.  I know this is because of my lifestyle choice and that I am bringing whole foods and goodness into my life each and every day. That is the only medicine that I take.   This is what the Doctor Allen Wellness and Medical Center is all about.  I know now that if I do have a need, I will be going to Dr. Allen. I certainly don’t need the government to tell me what my healthcare is going to look like. It should look like this.  If you are already on this path and want continued support, then this is the place for you.  If you want to regain your health and take a new and positive direction in your life, then this is definitely the place for you.  Come see their beautiful facility and meet the incredible staff.  There are some wonderful things happening in the Health, Fitness, and Wellness community here in the Las Vegas area, and the Doctor Allen Wellness and Medical Center is a shining beacon of hope and real help.  For more information, you can go their website at or call them at (702)754-4900.
