Every patient that has come to me has impacted my life, and I want to honor them with something that will help and nurture the environment for many, many years.
So every patient will have a tree planted in their name as part of Endobariatric's commitment to sustainability. Not just any tree…a pecan tree. Why a pecan tree? A pecan tree can live for up to 300 years and can provide nourishment to hundreds of people year after year.
Each pecan tree takes about 10 years until they are mature enough to be able to be harvested for nuts. During that time span they will be carefully maintained and cultivated.
Once the trees go into production the pecans can be harvested, and sold. The money raised will be donated 100% to charity. This way we can help our planet and also help people in so many ways. Isn’t it amazing! We (you and I) will be doing something that will endure for generations to come. This way we convert Endobariatric into a not-only socially responsible company but also into an ecological responsible firm.
The Health Benefits Are Amazing.
Pecans are rich in fiber. They help in increasing metabolism. The contain oleic acid which has been found to reduce breast cancer. Pecans also contain magnesium which helps fight off cardiovascular disease and reduce strokes. Pecans are also rich in polyphenolic antioxidant ellagic acid, vitamin E, beta carotene, lutein and zea-xanthin…which all play a part in removing toxic oxygen-free radicals from your body. And pecans are known for helping prevent hair loss and giving your skin a softer, younger appearance.
With Endobariatric averaging 1,000 new patients a year, that’s 1000 new pecan trees planted. That’s a lot of trees. That’s a lot of benefits. And each one named for a special patient.
