Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 271-Don’t Be Mislead by Metrics

Welcome! and Thank you for listening. 

There are so many nutritional claims suggesting certain foods result in the best outcome.  But what outcomes are they referring to?  How much dietary change do you really need to do?  Why change anyway? 

Today’s discussion is about risk versus benefits.  How do you personally measure health improvement?  What is a reasonable health goal? What happens if you just roll the dice and do nothing?

I will give you six tips to improve your overall health, and the health of your fury friends.  We will also discuss how your immune function is related to cancer, autoimmune disease, and infections.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 270: If Tootsie Can, Why Can’t I?

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Will I live to be 100 if I am plant based?  I have good genes so perhaps I don't need to worry.  I exercise a lot so, I can eat what I want.  Now and then, a little won't hurt you.  These are all things that you hear people say in order to justify dietary choices.  The reality is that there are many factors that go into longevity, and most people spin their own justifications for their behaviors.  

I hope that after today's podcast, you will be able to answer some of the tough questions that are posed to people that have chosen to follow a plant strong lifestyle.  The reality is that the incidence of obesity and poorly controlled hypertension is increasing.  Our nation is becoming more and more unhealthy.  I believe that eating a diverse plant based diet along with vigorous exercise is much better than rolling the dice on good genes or ones ability to outrun a poor diet and lifestyle.  ,

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 269: Can you Feed Yourself?

Welcome! and Thank you for listening! When did you begin to feed yourself?   What exactly does that mean? A Poptart,  a cheese burger and fries and a pizza?  Do you think Hamburger helper makes a meal complete?  Do you think about minerals and vitamins when you plan your meals?  Do you even need to?

This is the topic I did a deep dive into on today’s podcast.  I believe part of why plant-based nutrition seems so impossible to some people is that they believe most important nutrients come from animal products.  Meat may be considered an all-encompassing nutrient source.   Perhaps eating animal products takes the guess work out of nutrition.   You will learn it comes at a high price for your health.  

I hope you enjoy the podcast.  Check out our website at  to find out how we can help to clear the fog on the practice of nutrition and how it relates to our health.  Email me at with questions.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast: Episode 268 with Dana Ayer-An Unlikely Runner

Welcome! and Thank you for listening! When can you call yourself a runner? Do you have to win a race, run a marathon or just show up?  Do you think of running as punishment or something other people do?  

Today's interview features Dana Ayers, a US Navy reservist, management consultant and you guessed it, runner.  To her, running is an adventure.  A way to explore and face unknowns.  She was not a high school or college runner.  She considers herself a back of the pack runner who takes it all in and enjoys the unexpected experiences along the way.  

This was a fun interview that showcases the need to have fun and joy with a little wellness thrown in.   I hope you enjoy my chat with Dana. 

You can purchase her paperback on Amazon, download the Kindle version and soon listen to the Audible version at

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast: Episode 267: We may Look Like our Dogs, but We are Definitely Better off eating like Herbivores

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Who domesticated who?  Our canine friends are most likely descendants from wolves over 14,000 years ago.  In fact, when people say you look like your dog, they are not that far off genetically when you look at our shared microbial DNA. 

Some of my veterinarian collogues are realizing the importance of nutrition when it comes to canine health.  They too have very little nutrition training and are swayed by industry when it comes to marketed food and supplement products.

Both the canine and human species are very resilient and can survive on a wide range of diets for some time before adverse health effects start to occur. 

How do we care for our animal companions and ourselves with regard to optimal health and wellness?  It is a path with many questions and challenges.  I hope you enjoy my ramblings about what I have learned and experienced.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 267: Asking the Right Questions

Welcome! and thank you for listening.  There is a lot of health opinions and advise offered freely on the web.  How much is true?  How do you sort it out?  Who is an expert? Does Yale or Harvard mean more than Ohio State when it comes to physicians, statisticians or perhaps veterinarians?  

Sometimes we tend to listen to answers without taking in to account the question that were asked?  It makes a big difference on how information is provided.  Perhaps you have heard the phrase, on a need to know basis.  

Today I will be asking you to think about some questions I pose?  Do you really know the answers?  Don't sell yourself short.  Look at your life experience when contemplating some of the answers. It might lead to more questions.  We are all learning, and when someone is sure of all the answers, you had better ask more questions.  

I hope you enjoy the episode.  Check out our website at to get more information on my practice.  Thank you for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 266-Thank you Samantha

Welcome! and thank you for listening.  I am a plant based cardiologist and also a vegan.  As many of you know our family has rescue dogs and cats.  This week I had to say goodbye to my beloved GSD rescue, Samantha.  It was more that she rescued me from the heart break of losing a previous dog  than I rescued her.  We connected immediately.  She spoke with her big brown eyes, and even at the end she used those eyes to tell me it was time for her to go.  She died of a genetic disease called degenerative spinal myelopathy.  Samantha was vegan.  She loved her vegetables and fruit.  It is difficult to prep for a meal without her at my feet waiting patiently for a sample.  Did being vegan prolong her life?  I know she enjoyed what she ate and her coat was beautiful as her personality. 

Plant based wellness is about eating plant based and living well.  We have written prescriptions for a rescue dog for more than one patient. 

I hope you enjoy my story of Samantha and how I believe that a rescue companion animal will bring love and wellness to your life.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode: 265: A Passion for Health

Welcome! and Thank you for listening!  Why do some people seem to make the transition to plant based nutrition so easy and others struggle.  Why does there have to be pain before people make a change.  

I have been treating people with lifestyle diseases my whole career, and it has only been since incorporating nutrition classes into my practice that I have been able to see reversal of heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension as well as many autoimmune diseases.  

We will discuss stumbling blocks to change, success stories and much more in today's episode.  

Please email me with questions at and check out the website at to see how you can become part of the practice.
