Meet Dr. Carl Myers
Dr. Myers is a Medical Oncologist and Chief Medical Officer of Yuma Regional Medical Center.
As the scientific data continues to pour in, confirming that our “modern” diet of processed food and factory produced animal products is causing many types of cancers, he wanted to be part of the effort to prevent the tragic results of our unhealthy diet.
Dr. Myers reminisces, “The last thing I ever wanted to do was own a restaurant. I had absolutely zero experience in the restaurant business… but sometimes one just has to go where your conscience leads you.
“The appreciation from happy customers gives me a lot of satisfaction. We are just scratching the surface as far as changing the culture. It helps that food made with better ingredients tastes so delicious.
“ I think the skyrocketing rates of childhood obesity and doubling of diabetes has finally gotten the public’s attention. We just can’t afford the healthcare costs that are tied to the way we eat. If we don’t change our diets, we can kiss the American dream good-bye.”
“The fast food culture is still a growing part of American life – the convenience and price is unbeatable and high fat, high sugar, high salt food is irresistible, even to the majority of people who really do want to protect their health.
Nature’s Express is committed to helping people find delicious, convenient, affordable food that is also nutritious. Keeping everything plant based dramatically decreases the toxic organic pollutants, hormones, and antibiotics that are consistently found in our dairy and meat products.
Our philosophy on our food is pretty simple:
1) Fresh ingredients cooked daily
3) Nutritious and unprocessed
The results are astonishing. People are constantly telling us:
“I noticed the pounds coming off right away”
“My skin looks better than it ever did…even without makeup”
“The food is delicious, I would never have believed it if I hadn’t tried it”
“I wish everyone the best of health!” – Dr Carl Myers
