Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 287: Mark Your Calendar

Welcome! and Thank you for listening!. 

Accountability comes in many forms; friends, family, and perhaps self.  I love the concept of self accountability using a calendar.  Write it down daily to keep it true and to be able to self check week to week and year to year.  Today, I will give you some tips on how this form of journaling can help to you to positively improve steadily over time.  

Vitamin D: It is more than just for your bones.  It is vital to your immune system.  Find out how it works and how you might get a little added protection against COVID-19 and other illnesses.  

We had our Healthy Start New Year Zoom this week featuring simple but healthy plant based versions of standard breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.  The feedback was such that we plan on offering different topics in the future.  If you have a suggestion, please email me at jami@doctordulaney.com.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 286: Covid, Fasting, and Immunity

Welcome! and Thank you for listening!

Feed a fever; starve a fever?  If you can sit up and take nourishment, you are going to be ok?  What are good food choices when ill? 

I am recovering from COVID-19.  Yes I had a positive PCR test and the symptoms.  Ten days I returned to work, and I am beginning to resume my running at a slow and cautious amount and pace.  

Today I will discuss fasting and illness and the benefits from fasting with regard to immune health.  One thing we know for sure is that being overweight increases the severity of COVID and other illnesses secondary to chronic inflammation and an overtaxed immune system.  

It is still possible to purchase a ticket to our Zoom nutrition conference January 13, 2021.  Go on over to doctordulaney.com for details.  Email me at jami@doctordulaney.com with questions.  We would love to help you introduce someone to the health benefits of plant based nutrition or jump start your own journey.  We will be cooking 6 meals and discussing their nutrition as well as a general Q and A session.  Don't miss out!

Thanks for listening!

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 285: Covid comeback!

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  I am a plant based cardiologist and endurance athlete.  However, I am currently on a healing journey from COVID.  I am getting better.  How did I get it?  Is it easy or hard to contract? 

Asymptomatic or presymptomatic spread?  Outdoor spread?  We will discuss on all of that as well as the treatment that I am utilizing and recommending for my members.

Vitamin C- liposomal is the easiest to tolerate.  I am trying for minimal of 10 grams a day.  

Vitamin D3- from the sun but I am taking more for COVID.  15000 IU daily until I am well.  Levels to follow

Quercetin: 250 twice daily.  

Zinc 250 mg daily

These are mega doses not RDA.  They are as a treatment and not daily minimums.  There are no risks involved.  

If you want to up your health and wellness game, there is still time to purchase a ticket for our Zoom Wellness conference on January 13, 2021.  Go to doctordulaney.com to purchase a ticket to health for you or someone you care about. Email me at jami@doctordulaney.com  with questions.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 283: Finding Beauty in Change

Welcome! and Thank you for listening. 

Have you heard the song; A Few of My Favorite Things?  This episode has a few of my favorite things I find beautiful.  The little things that can make your day.  If little things make you smile, perhaps finding the little but beautiful things in a healthy lifestyle can also make your day better.  

Change is hard.  Learning something new or creating a new habit is also challenging.  If you can find a little piece of beauty or joy in the change, it is better.  Piece a few little things together, and over time it becomes a beautiful change.  

I will share with you my menu planning strategies.  If you find them interesting or would like to share them with friends, we are offering a one night zoom menu planning conference.  Addie Majnaric, RDN and I will be preparing a few favorite entrees that are plant based twists on familiar foods the whole family enjoys.  Go on over to doctordulaney.com to purchase your gift tickets for the conference.  It will also make a great stocking stuffer for those you would like to give the gift of health.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast: Episode 282: The Gift of Health

Welcome! and Thank you for listening!

We all want to be healthy, but many of us struggle with the change to a healthy lifestyle.  What gets in the way.  Spoiler alert, you are supporting it on your shoulders, and perhaps in your heart.  Sure, there are roadblocks everywhere, but they don't stop you from getting where you really want to go!  Perhaps it is not what is stopping you, but really what you are running from.  

The holiday season is difficult for many people.  The pressure for perfection can be overwhelming.  Perhaps a different view is in order.  A view that looks at the simple signs of hope and peace all around us.  The efforts people  make to show they care.  I hope you find some of my suggestions helpful.  

Take a moment to enjoy the silence.  Take your nutrition back to the basics.  Fruits and vegetables in their natural form without adding toxins and distractions.  Do something simple but thoughtful for someone and observe their reaction and then yours.  Peace and happiness is not as hard to find as you might expect.  You just have to appreciate it in small doses.  

Go to doctordulaney.com to purchase gift certificates for a zoom nutrition class or our plant based wellness cookbook.  When you are ready to take your health to the next level, join our membership program, and let us get you off of your medications and on the path to optimal health and wellness. 

Thank you for listening!

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 280: Happy Thanksgiving

Welcome! and Thank you for listening!

Happy Plant Strong Thanksgiving.  I hope your Thanksgiving is filled with gratitude and nutrients to make you and your family happy and healthy into the New Year.  

When did Thanksgiving first become a holiday of overindulgence?   Joshepha Hale  lobbied to get Thanksgiving to be an official United States Holiday in 184 , and it was she who wrote the first official menu that included turkey.   It was not until 1989 that George Bush Senior pardoned the first turkey at the White House.  

We all have fond memories of holidays, and luckily, the stressful parts become funny stories for the future.   I don't believe I have heard anyone reference a particular year when the food was the best.  It is really the fiascos that make the memory books.  Yet, we continue to try to make each holiday storybook perfect.  

This podcast touches on a few of those traditions in my house, and touches on my current Thanksgiving menu which is nothing like it was when I was young.  I am thankful for my family, their health, and my friends.   I am grateful for the support of my members and podcast followers.  I appreciate the opportunity to provide healthcare and guidance to those trusting me with their care.  You are all a part of my family.  

If you would like to give the gift of health this year, Addie and I have decided to offer a Zoom nutrition class demonstrating how to take 2 regular breakfast, lunch and dinners and make them plant based.  We will do a discussion on the health benefits of a plant based diet and take questions.  The recording will then be available for a week after for those gift card holders to view.  Below is a link to purchase. 


Thank you for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 279: The Choice is Yours


Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Plant based nutrition is a very effective method to reverse lifestyle diseases such as coronary artery disease, obesity, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases.   Eating plant based and only plant protein sources is associated with a decrease in cancer and cancer recurrences.  People with kidney disease can have a slowing of the progression by eating plant based and eliminating sources of animal protein. 


You would think something so effective would be embraced widely and supported by friends and family.  The reality is that many can’t seem to pull it off.  Why is healthy food admonished?  Why is it cool to eat junk food and overeat?  Why do some people believe it will not work for them?  What is a reasonable price to pay for health?


Nike says, “Just do it”.  My father used to say, “buck up”.   I hear I am trying, or I have a lot of excuses.  The effort comes from a commitment from within.  I am healthy.  Therefore, I do not eat that.  I lament on these topics and more in today’s podcast.  I hope you enjoy.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 278: Odyssey SwimRun Austin Race Report

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  The Odyssey SwimRun is in the books.  It was our first team event, and our first ever tethered swim!  

Covid restrictions has dampened our usual racing season.  That seems a little selfish, but we use races as life challenges.  Marathons, ultras, and Ironman races are ways to get out of your comfort zone.  You never know what will happen, but you know there will be challenges both in training and on race day.  The concept of SwimRun was inaugurated after a bet with two friends to swim island to island running in between.  It was called Otillo or island to island.  The original race covered 24 islands in Sweden.  Competitors carry their swim gear of paddles, and pull buoys, goggles and caps while wearing a wetsuit during the running portion.  The swim is done in shoes while being tethered to a race partner.  The race has caught on in other countries and the Odyssey SwimRun company odysseyswimrun.com has several races in the United States.  Winners are eligible for the World Championship in Sweden.  

Michael and I decided to give it a go and signed up for the Austin event a year ago.  Covid hit and pools closed so our swimming came to a halt.  Many other races were canceled, but we got word a month ago that the Austin SwimRun was on.  So with less than 2000 yards of swim practice and no tether experience, we set out for the long course event that totaled over 13 miles of running and 6000 yards of swimming.  

Today's podcast is my recount of the event.  Spoiler alert: we finished and had a great time.  Perhaps you will join us in another event.  If not at least check out our website to learn about optimal health and wellness through plant based nutrition and movement at doctordulaney.com

Don't know how to cook plant based?  Grab our cookbook or get one for a friend: Plant Based Wellness Cookbook, the Doctor, the Dietitian, and the Diva.  


Thanks for listening!
