While pharmaceutical companies rake in billions, the health of a nation continues to decline rapidly, leaving patients and physicians searching for answers in all the wrong places. The Empty Medicine Cabinet: The Pharmacist's Guide to the Hidden Danger of Drugs and the Healing Powers of Food wastes no time in explaining why this is so, offering solutions that target the cause of disease rather than the symptoms of poor health.

Like most healthcare professionals, Dustin Rudolph, PharmD, entered the field of medicine with one goal in mind--to help his patients get healthy. As a pharmacist, Dr. Rudolph believed the best way to accomplish this was through pills, procedures, and surgeries. Boy, was he wrong! His story, life experiences, and professional expertise serve as the foundation for this book.

The business model of a profit-based healthcare system is exposed, resulting in a steady stream of chronically sick, lifelong customers. Rudolph offers a cost-free, side-effect-free solution rooted in the discipline of lifestyle medicine and plant-based nutrition. Backed by an array of scientific studies, readers hear the truth in The Empty Medicine Cabinet.

Heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, obesity, autoimmune diseases, and much more are discussed at length in part one. Part two presents the facts on using food as medicine. Many long-held beliefs in nutrition and health are called into question, answered emphatically and factually in simple, easy-to-understand layman's terms of the complex science behind it all. A surprising, yet accurate, review of the scientific literature is also undertaken on many popular, over-the-counter supplements taken by many in today's society.

With a total of 50 mouthwatering, flavor-filled recipes included, The Empty Medicine Cabinet is one prescription you don't want to miss out on! It delivers the answers you've been looking for and the results to back it up.

What the experts are saying about the book...

"This wonderful book shows you that the most powerful medicines are on your plate. The foods you eat every day have the power to prevent illness and to even reverse it. This book will be your guide to unlocking this power. And all the "side effects" are good ones: Easy weight loss, lower cholesterol, and a longer life."

--Neal Barnard, MD, President of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and Author of Power Foods for the Brain

"Do you want to take charge of your health? Read this outstanding book and learn how to take advantage of the enormous healing powers of excellent nutrition. Your body will thank you for the rest of your life."

--John Robbins, President of The Food Revolution Network and Author of Diet for a New America, The Food Revolution, and many other best-sellers

"This book is unique in that Dustin Rudolph offers a pharmacist's perspective and experience--working with doctors, many of whom over-prescribe medicines that provide little benefit to most patients. His story, experiences, and the stories of others he includes in his book are great examples of how a plant-based diet can turn even an extremely ill person's life around. The book proves that almost everyone benefits from adopting a plant-based diet, and health improvement is faster and better than with drug treatment."

--Pamela A. Popper, PhD, ND, Executive Director of The Wellness Forum and Author of Food Over Medicine

"Dustin Rudolph provides an empowering exploration of pharm versus food from the unique perspective of a Doctor of Pharmacy, and an expert in nutrition and lifestyle medicine. Informative, inspiring, and insightful, The Empty Medicine Cabinet is a must-read."

--Brenda Davis, RD, Author of Becoming Vegan, Express Addition: The Everyday Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition

"Instead of being a pharmacist pushing pills, Dustin is a "farm assist" pushing plants. Most people are illiterate when it comes to the power of a whole foods, plant-based diet to prevent, halt, and even reverse the majority of chronic Western disease. Read this compellingly clear and concise book from a perspective we've never seen before and become literate and take back your health!"

--Rip Esselstyn, Author of The Engine 2 Diet and My Beef with Meat
