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.

Run 100 kilometers on a plant based diet ?  Yes that is what Jim Gray does.  And he runs without migraines that he used to get eating the Standard American Diet.   No fancy food just plants.  Watermelon, dates and bananas to run long.  No protein shakes or pizzas with cheese.   No hypertension anymore either after taking BP pills for decades.  Teenage kids are no problem in Jim's house when it comes to plant based nutrition.  What more can a parent do to assure healthy children.  Amazing.  Enjoy my interview with Jim Gray, an everyday inspiration.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 80-Sharing the message with Academy of Family Practiioners

I had the opportunity to speak at the South Carolina Academy of Family Practice in Hilton Head, South Carolina last weekend.  There were some plant based doctors that were happy to be supported.  The others were very receptive to the concept of food as medicine.   At least they were receptive to food could be the reason for disease.  I believe we as physicians  need to reclaim our role in the community as teachers of health and wellness as opposed to pusher of the latest pharmaceutical discovery.  By educatng we can empower people to take control of their health which makes us all feel good.  No brainer.  

If you have not tried the Happy Cow app do so.   We have found some amazing plant based food and have met some really interesting people.   Plant based restarants tend to be happy places.   Do not settle because you are traveling.   
I am very happy to share some of my success stories and I have told those patients and they are quite happy to be mentioned.  
If you have a story or question email me at  Check the website out at   Thanks for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 79- Sharing some of my stories

I am an endurance athlete.  Not an Olympian or a "contender".  A middle of the pack marathon runner and triathlete.  That does not mean I do not have the desire to improve or become faster.  Nor does it mean I use age as an excuse.  To the contrary I need to push to stay ahead of that downhill curve people say is coming.  Not yet.  I think it is like everything else we set goal that we do not alway achieve but that does not make them unworthy of the effort.   The same goes for nutrtiion.  Try to make each day a little better. 

I am still trying to make my medical practice better.   Does practice make perfect?  Probably not.  But I am still enjoying the ride thanks to the benefits of teaching patients about a whole foods plant based diet.   This weekend I have the opportunity to speak at a family medicine conference.  I hope to share my success with them and help them to start adding nutrition to their therapy and maybe even the first line of therapy.  Email me at or  Thanks for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellnes Podcast Episode 78-Junk Food to Health Food

It really is not that easy.  If it were more people would be plant based.  There are certainly obstacles and some may live in the same household.  Be brave.  Choose  health.  Stay strong.  I enjoy every plant strong meal.  Not only because they are nutrient dense but because they taste good.  Experiment maybe one time per week and keep the good recipes that your family enjoy.  Try a new vegetable or fruit each week.  Check out Instagram for some healthy meals.  The winner this week for me was eggplant bacon.  I never really cared for pork bacon but this has a really good flavor.   

Exercise is not going to cure you but it will add to your overall health by making your bones stronger and your body more efficient and flexible.  Don't accept loosing mobility as a part of aging.   I recently did a yoga class on the beach and the instructor appeared at least in her sixties but her mobility was more in her twenties.  Set goals and go for them.  Don't settle.  You probably will not become the perfect plant strong vegan overnight but a step in the right direction each day adds up.  
Email me at or check out the website at  I would love the opportunity to help.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellnes Podcast Episode 77-Salute to the Military

Welcome to episode 77!.  Just me this episode.  It is Memorial Day Weekend.  A time to honor the fallen and remember their sacrafice for us.  It is also a time of gathering friends and neighbors for cookouts.   That means grilling for the masses.   And a scary time to be plant based, potentially.  But fear not there are plant based salads that would turn a carnivores head and Riblets!  Seitan riblets on the grill and veges on the grill.  Corn in the husk with red pepper sauce for dipping.   Giant fruit salads.  The best of both worlds.  Eating til full but not feeling poorly because of the nutrient density of the food.  I give you some insight to day one of my nutrition class and we discuss some dishes I have been enjoying.   Contact me with questions at or
