I am a plant based Internal Medicine physician who is also board certified in Lifestyle Medicine. I am passionate about helping people prevent and reverse chronic diseases using lifestyle medicine and plant based nutrition. I have been plant based for just over 4 years. My journey started in 2011 when I started researching ways to prevent and reverse disease with the goal to help my patients. I discovered the overwhelming data supporting plant based nutrition. I began to slowly transition to eat more plant foods and less meat and dairy. I noticed that when I became vegan that my acne and acid reflux went away and I also had more energy.
My goal is to educate people regarding the benefits of a plant based diet and to inspire them to eat more whole plant foods. In many cases, individuals have been able to come off or reduce medication doses on a whole food plant based diet. As a physician, I see the consequences of poor diet and lifestyle choices with 80% of chronic diseases estimated to be directly related to it. Through my public speaking engagements, classes, workshops, and social media accounts (@theplantbasedmd), I help people to restore health naturally. Our bodies are remarkable and have the ability to maintain wellness and heal, if we put the right fuel in it.
