Jami Dulaney MD Plan Based Wellness Podcast Episode 216-It is Your Body. Why Not Take Control?

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Happy July 4th a day late!  I hope you had a great holiday eating and moving and being healthy.  So many times, we blame others for our dietary blunders.  Are you committed to being plant-based or are you waiting for others to lead the way? 

Many have been lead to believe that they have no control over their cravings, their health or their ability to choose.  They turn to quick chemical fixes or procedures and loose control that may result in serious and sometimes lethal complications or side effects. 

What if I told you that you could be in control of your health without risks and complications.  That is where plant based nutrition and breath work comes in. Taking back control of our health outcomes is possible, but we need to play an active roll.  

I discuss plant based nutrition, menu ideas, breathing, and heart rate variability in this weeks podcast and much more.

Thank you for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 215-Self Talk

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Life is like a marathon.  Just when you think it is too tough to go on, you hear a cheer from the crown, and you get a second wind.  Nothing changed, there were just some strangers cheering and ringing cow bells.  There was a study where they flashed smiley faces on a screen in front of cyclist on trainers,  and they went longer and faster even if the smiling faces were flashed quicker than the eye could identify the faces.  They call the crowd the 6th person on the basketball team.  Positive sounds and images work undisputedly.  Why don't we cheer for ourselves.  I am going to be plant based!  I am plant based!  I eat healthy!  I feel strong!

That is what I am talking about.  It is not easier and it does not have to be easy.  In fact, I don't want it to be easy.  I want it to be worthy of my effort.  I am going to be plant based.  I am going to be the healthiest I can be.  

Life is not easy, but the challenge is so worth the effort.  I talk about these efforts and the rewards of becoming plant based.  I wish you health and happiness this 4th of July!. Be plant strong and move your body.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 214-They Don’t Know What They are Missing!

Welcome! and thank you for listening.  Have you ever heard of Falafalous Freekah Patties? How about Spanish Quinoa sauté? How many meals do you eat each week that have no ties to a box? Do you take time to appreciate your plate before consuming the food?  Are kitchen tasks something to be avoided, so take out is the answer? 

I think a large portion of the people out there are being duped into thinking what they eat doesn't really matter.  If it tastes good and its quick, eat it.  They have no idea the potential power that  real food has.  Real food is the food that actually possesses nutrients that your body can use to heal and maintain health.  The majority of food consumed provides a excessive energy or calories and even more metabolic wastes that slowly accumulate resulting in disease or sickness.  

Perhaps there is a status of not having to cook for yourself or eating out at up scale restaurants.  Duped again.  While you sit at the table deteriorating, the so called chefs in the back  are often loading plates with salted, buttered food that sizzles, distracting you from the real lack of anything that your body can actually use for nutrition. 

There is a positive side.  This episode will share the joy of cooking and creating health in the kitchen as I highlight what goes on in the day of a Dulaney Nutrition class.  They are learning not to settle for food that will not nourish their body as well as please their palate.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast-Episode 213 with Patrick Mckeown

Welcome! and thank you for listening.  Today I have a special guest, Patrick Mckeown.  He is the author of The Oxygen Advantage and leads workshops throughout his native Ireland, North America, Europe, and Australia on the benefits of breathing "light"  We can go 40 days without eating, and several days without water, but only a few minutes without oxygen, yet we rarely discuss how breathing affects our health and wellbeing.  

Patrick and I discuss the basics of why we breath and dive into the etiologies of sleep apnea, panic disorders, and athletic performance to name a few.  As with most pathologic conditions, we treat sleep apnea the same way regardless of the etiology with a mask.  Little education is given to the patient other than to wear the mask and loose weight.  Rarely is one's breathing technique assessed by a physician, yet medications are prescribed for COPD, asthma, and allergies without a discussion of the possibility of reversal or improvement. 

People with panic disorders and poor sleep are given medications with many side effects and little benefits without ever taking into account their breathing which also greatly affects their autonomic nervous system response such as inflammation, hypertension and tachycardias. 

Athletes train but are rarely educated on the performance enhancements of effective breathing such as the potential to raise hemoglobin levels and metabolic function.  

Patrick and I discuss many of these things in a very practical sense.  Please check out his book: The Oxygen Advantage.

You can find him on social media:

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 211: The Doctor, The Dietitian and the Diva

Welcome! and thank you for listening.  It has arrived. I am joined today by my mom, the Diva, my daughter, the Dietitian to announce that our cookbook is finally available for purchase.  I could not be more pleased than to have created this cookbook with 2 of my favorite people.  My mother is a lighthouse to show others how plant based nutrition can help one regain their health at any age.  Addie not only organized and created, but did the photography for the entire book as well as the nutrition checks.  I could not be part of a better team.

The book is dedicated to my grandmother Addie Dulaney.  She passed from a massive heart attack as a complication of diabetes.  She was my inspiration to go to medical school to learn to treat these dreaded diseases.  Who knew that her love of cooking would ultimately inspire me to teach people how to cook plant based food in order to heal themselves from lifestyle diseases such and diabetes and heart disease. 

I hope you enjoy the recipes that me and my family have created.  The are some of our nutrition class students favorites as well. 

The cookbook is available on Amazon: or from our website at https://doctordulaney.com/resources/plant-based-nutrition-resources/ 

Thank you for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episod 210-You have to Play a Little

Welcome! and thank you for listening.  I just got back from Houston, Texas where we celebrated Addie Majnaric, RDN and the Diva aka my Mother's birthdays.  We celebrated by playing.  We ran, went to TopGolf and to the University of Houston's football training facility.  A family that play's together stays healthy together.  

The world can get way to complicated and we forget to just enjoy the moment.  Sometimes exercise is seen as a chore or a debt to be paid for eating or sitting in an office.  I would like to think of it as joy.  I am happiest when I am with my family and being outside playing with them is even better.  

We all have struggles but sometime we get in our own way and sometime we need a jolt to make us realize just how great the simple things in life can be. 

If you need a little motivation, I suggest you watch a documentary called Emmanuel's gift.  Emmanuel was born without a tibia so one of his leg's was useless.  He did not let that define him but instead used it to propel him to help others.  He pedaled a bike across Ghana to show that great things can be achieved despite what others might perceive as physical challenges.  

We all struggle in one way or another.  Perhaps if we played more and took things a little less serious we would see that those perceived challenges and obstacles are really our own individual paths to shine.  It is not easy but,  if you play a little, the journey is even more sweet. 

Check out our website at doctordulaney.com for information about our practice and my weekly blog.  I would love to hear from you.  Email me at jami@doctordulaney.com with questions.  

Thank you for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 209-Happy Mother’s Day

Welcome! and thank you for listening!.  Happy Mother's day or perhaps Happy Women's day to all of you who care for humans, animals, neighbors, run households and support others.  This is a really short episode wishing all of you a peaceful and healthy day.  I hope that includes some exercise because it is important everyday.  If you are cooking or eating out, I hope you treat your loved ones or are treated to a healthy plant based meal.  Celebration food can be healthy and nutrient dense.  Take time to present the food in a special way so that you can appreciate the goodness of a colorful plant based meal.  Be grateful for those preparing your healthy meals all year long and for the workers that help to grow the food and get it to the table.  

Happy Mothers Day!

Jami Dulaney MD Plan Based Wellness Podcast: Episode 208:Vegefest Sarasota

Welcome! and thank you for listening.  Addie Majnaric RDN and I attended the Sarasota Vegefest last weekend. We had an information tent, and I was on the physician's speaker panel and 2 of our members were on the success story panel. 

I discuss our day and the panel discussions on this podcast.  Who goes to a Vegefest? What are they looking for?  The fact that a festival of any kind other than a health festival promotes health is unique.  In fact health festivals are usually not really health promoting but gadget and potion promoting festivals.  We were promoting the health benefits a plant based diet to prevent and reverse lifestyle diseases.  We were also showcasing the uniqueness of our practice.  We do not sell supplements or gadgets.  We do promote wellness.  We differ from coaching services in that our practice has a full time physician, nurse and dietitian to educate and to treat people in health and sickness.  

The information age is great in that anyone with internet access can search a disease and potential treatments.  Make your own diagnosis and get ratings of the recommended treatments.  It is great to get educated and ask questions.  However, navigating the literature and sorting out fact from fiction can be very difficult.  We look for what we want to hear.  We believe those with a dynamic personality or a hopeful or easier strategy.  That does not always serve us.  

I believe nothing beats the ability to communicate directly with a well trained staff.  If you would like to learn more about our medical practice that prevents as well as treats, check out our website at doctordulaney.com or email me at jami@doctordulaney with questions.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Welless Podcast Episode 207: Mendocino 50K Recap and More

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  The Mendocino 50K is in the books.  It was a great race with great support and great post race food.  It was great to do a vegan race and meet a lot of plant strong people.  

Slowly more evidence is coming out to support plant based nutrition in the prevention and reversal of disease.  This month's JAMA links a high fiber intake to significant reductions in mortality, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and many cancers.  Besides colon cancer, there is a reduction of pancreatic, ovarian and liver cancers with a high fiber diet.  Only plants contain fiber.  To reduce your risk aim for greater than 50 grams of fiber daily. These levels cannot be achieved while filling up on meat, dairy and processed foods.  By eliminating animal foods you will also select for a more balanced and protective gut microbiota.  Eat your vegetables and fruit.

We are getting close to releasing our cookbook and will keep you posted.  I will be speaking at the Sarasota VegeFest May 4th.  Come by and say hi if you are in the area.  Check out the website at doctordulaney.com for information about the practice as well as a link to MamaSezz.com for some great plant strong meals delivered to your door.  Email me with questions at jami@doctordulaney.com.

Thank you for listening!
