Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellnes Podcast Episode 90-with Josh LaJaunie

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 and check out my website at

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   Email me at

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 and visit the website at

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.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 83- A Vegan Wedding

Welcome to our plant based wedding.   I recently celebrated the marriage of my daughter Addie Dulaney to Nathan Majnaric.  It was a perfect day celebrating with wonderful friends and family.   We were truely blessed.  Addie and Nathan decided that they would like to have the food be plant based but to do it in such a way that introduced our omnivore friends and family to great plant based food without really annoucing it.  I am pleased to tell you that it was a huge success.   Even a former defensive lineman and strength coach was pleased and intrigued.  

We also talk a little on lipids and the Lp(a) factor in cardiovascular disease.  By eating a whole foods plant based diet the LDL declines and therefore the Lp(a) has nothing to bind with so the damage is mitigated.   Bottom line eat a whole foods plant basded diet and remain active and positive.  Email me at and visit the website at

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 82 with Boyd Myers

I would like to welcome Dr. Boyd Myers to the podcast.  He is a  Family Physician who has adopted  plant based nutrition as a lifestyle and is now interested in spreading the word to other physicians and anyone else willing to hear his story.   His immediate reaction was that eating plant based will be too hard to pull off.  Not uncommonly, a patient following the Pritikin diet was his inspirtation and supporter.  You will get a glimpse into the thoughts of a Family Practictioner on patient relationships and the practice of medicine.  You will hear his kindness and empathy as well as his desire to imporve the lives of those around him.  I believe people like Dr. Myers will help spread the word to the physician community that there is a kinder more gentle approach to medicine that will help the patient and the physician achieve a better life.  Contact me at with questions and visit for more information about upcoming classes and the newsletter.   

Enjoy the journey.
