Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 93-The Role of Nutrition in Medical School?

"Not every day is a good day" is something my father once told me in my disappointment over how life was going.  But then again there is something good about every day.  My week was not a total success but there were moments of progress.  I also had my eyes opened to the difficulty of educating todays traditional medical doctors.   There is a lot of information and a lot of demand to learn the traditional art of healing through medications and procedures.  How to restore health in the shortness amount of time with the least amount of effort.   My experience with a third year medical student this week exemplified that.  He was so overwhelmed with diagnosing and medications that prevention or health through nutrition was never in view.  Our medical schools need to teach more nutrition in the  first two years and perhaps offer a clinical option for nutritional medicine in the forth year for the few interested.   Then we must wait until the experienced physician opens their eyes to the wonders of prevention through nutrition.  It is not glamorous.  It will never make an episode of Chicago Med or Grey's Anatomy, but it is real.  And when one see's the power of nutrition you cannot turn away.  The progress is slow but rewarding.  Healing without harm.  Educating to empower others to heal themselves.  Email me with questions at jamidulaney@gmail.com and visit the website at doctordulaney.com.  I am available for telemedicine consults through the website as well.  Be well and be plant strong.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 92-Ironman Louisville Recap

What does an Ironman have to do with plant based nutrition?  Well the quick answer is it is what I do for a hobby and what I eat to be healthy.   But it can also be a similar long journey of training to move and to eat more healthfully.  There will be setbacks and successes.  There will be challenges to get the training in and the plants on the table.  People will call you crazy or a "nut" for your choices.  I believe both gets you closer to the positive aspects of humanity.  Our desire to help others and make lives better.  Human and non human lives.  Daniel Kisch says "ignorance and fear are matters of the mind"  Don't let fear block you from being active and healthy.  You are capable of many more things than you can imagine.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 91-It is All Connected

Have you ever watched a toddler pick something off of the floor.  They do a perfect squat.  Completely balanced.  How about a race here running for the line.   His head lifts up and his legs jet out in front of him and he pulls them back whipping his hooves to the ground.  Fast forward to people walking in the box stores leaning on the carts trying to get one leg in front of the other.   We have lost mobility and connectedness by being sedentary.  I challenge you to move your body and stretch.  Get on the floor and back up.  Try yoga and foam rolling to get your body connected again.  Add that to a nutrient dense plant based diet and your body will stay working like the beautiful machine it was meant to be.  Fueling and moving our body efficiently is the best thing we can do for ourselves and others.  We all have beautiful fluid bodies that are brilliant machines.  I challenge you to find that body within yourself by eating a whole food plant based diet and moving as were designed to do.

Is it the "ghost servings" that are holding you back from achieving your goals.  Josh LaJaunie has been there and understands.  He has also learned to love himself enough not to let others sabotage his decision to take his health back.  Josh has lost over 200 pounds, started running and has progressed to now coming in third Overall in the Wildcat 100.  That was not his original goal.  He started just trying to fit in a nice suit for a college presentation.  Then finish a 5K.  Then beat that time and do a 10K.  How about a marathon or a 50K or a 50 miler and more marathons faster.  He believes our bodies were meant to move.  A lot.  I agree.  Eat plants and move your body.  Get out into nature and see the sun come up and feel the sun and the wind.  Believe in yourself enough to say to others I choose to eat vegetables and fruit so that I can move my body and enjoy a long healthy life.  Enjoy this chat with Josh.  Email me a jamidulaney@gmail.com and check out my website at doctordulaney.com.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast -Episode 89 Mindful Nutrition

If we just take a minute to think about what we are eating and where did it come from exactly, we might just make better choices.  People are more particular with what gas goes into their cars than what they feed their families.  The government does not help with the purchase of surplus cheese to support the dairy industry and then give the reasoning as it is a good source of protein for poor folks.   Really? Yes their is protein with a big side of salt and fat.  A more mindful approach would be for the government to purchase ugly vegetables to give to the poor so that they could actually get healthy.  Today, I will discuss some tips to become a more mindful chef and shopper.   Follow me on Instagram at Jaimeladulaney and check out the website doctordulaney.com.   Email me at jamidulaney@gmail.com

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 87-She did the Doctor Bash

Doctor bashing or doctor responsibility.  It is certainly complicated but I do believe physicians want the best for their patients and it is a job that not many would trade for if you ask during the 3 am phone call.  That said we knew what we were getting into and fought to get it.   So we must take control of the downward decline of our patient's health.  We are the educators  and no educator can be effective in a 10 minute visit. Proper assessment cannot be made without communication and understanding.  We as physicians need to take leadership in evaluating and educating  the necessity of a whole foods plant based diet.  We also need to understand the reasons people are not successful in change and guide them on becoming more aware.  Patients get the choice but they should be aware of all of the choices as well as the risks.  Eat 4 cups of greens a day.  Eat a colorful plate of vegetables and fruit.  Forget the meat, cheese and oil.  Move your body and gets some sun but not a sunburn.  Stay strong and flexible.  If your doctor cant help you figure out how to accomplish that, get another doctor.  You don't need tests, you need a plan.  Email me at jamidulaney@gmail.com and visit the website at doctordulaney.com.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 86-Cow’s Milk is for Baby Cows

We have all had our heart strings tugged by photos of a baby animal being fed by a bottle.  Yet we remain comfortably unaware that calves are being deprived of the life giving nourishment they were meant to have by nature because humans like cheese and other dairy from cow's milk.  Not only is it cruel to the calf but it is harmful to humans.  It is associated wtih allegies, autoimmune disease, cancers, and cardiovascular disease. We make it even worse by adding large amounts of sugar to make ice cream and large amounts of salt to make cheese.  I know it is the way most of us were raised but we also were raised with a black and white tv that didnt have a remote and managed to give that up.  I take a little time during this podcast to just ask for awareness before we eat and drink.  Also finding common ground.   Oatmeal is plantbased and almost everyone has eaten it.  Perhaps take a little time this week to jot down plant based foods that you like and eat already that could be used to make a two week menu.
