Film Screening: Bethany's Story followed by Q&A Session
The film “Bethany’s Story”, produced by health and wellness organization SanaView, documents a girl’s illness from its onset to recovery. It reveals how food, not medicine, consistently proves to be a dominant factor in healing and reversing illness and disease. Illustrating these points are interviews with leading medical and nutrition experts
such as Dr. Neal Barnard, founder of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Dr.
Michael Gregor, founder of NutritionFacts.org, Dr. Gabriel Cousens, Dr. Brian Clement, Brenda
Davis R.D., and Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona. A Q&A session with Janet McKee, producer of the film and board certified holistic health counselor, will follow.
At age thirteen, Bethany was left paralyzed from a series of bad reactions to medication. For years doctors told her she would never walk again. On her own, Bethany discovered and adopted a raw vegan plant-based diet and within a short amount of time she was out of her chair standing and walking. “Our body has this amazing ability to rejuvenate and repair and regenerate,” says Dr. Michael Gregor.
“Bethany’s Story” has been screened at the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival, previewed at the North American Vegetarian Society’s annual Summerfest and was a first time sell-out at the Pittsburgh Filmmakers Institute in Pittsburgh, PA. It has been selected to be screened at The Seeds Festival in New York City in May 2013, the Toronto Raw Vegan Festival this June of 2013 and many more. “Finally, doctors support a health trend that is here to stay,” Dr. Neal Barnard adds, “The number of people saying wait a minute, I want a better way, I want to feed myself better, I want to feed my kids better, that group is bigger than ever.”
