Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast: Episode 255-Can I Just Stop My BP Medication?

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Can you just stop medications?  Your doctor may say you can never stop your medications.  What if you ask why?  Are you an annoying patient because you ask questions or question the answers?  These situations lead to distrust and confusion.  What is your roll in becoming healthy.  Will your risk be decreased if you are plant based.  

There could not be a time of more medical confusion or doubt.  Who do you trust when there are not any experts.  Do we go by what we want to hear or take the worst case scenario? 

I encourage you to ask questions and more questions.  I encourage you to be the director of your health decisions after you have taken in all of the answers.  Remember, I don't know is a valid answer in times like these, and the person who says I don't know may be the most honest in the room.  

Enjoy the podcast and remember; wash your hands and be kind to strangers.  You do not know their struggles.  Go to and sign up for our newsletter to get monthly wellness tips and an invitation to our virtual practice tour coming this summer.  Email me with questions and by all means get outside and get some sunshine.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 254: Endothelial Stem Cells from Diet and Exercise

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  This episode discusses two ways to improve health.  One is through new interventions that may carry unknown risks and limited benefits.  The other is a slower approach to health through plant based nutrition and exercise.  We have the amazing capacity to heal if we provide our bodies an opportunity and take away offending agents.  Time heals all wounds as a wise person once said.  But many of us are in a rush.  We want things now, and unfortunately forget that bias not only affects us but others in decision making.  We fail to ask how and why and assume that it must be ok.

Most of you know that greens improve nitric oxide production.  Do greens make us bullet proof?  How does exercise improve our health?  Can we make a sick heart better?  Can our bodies heal if we take away the offending agents?  Do you want to be in control of your health or wait on a magic cure?  

I believe that we have a lot more control over our health than a lot of people would have you believe.  I also think that fear will not contribute positively to our health.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 253-Why Batch Cooking Doesn’t Work but Grunting During a Tennis Serve Does

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  This is a fun episode tying together several of the latest episodes.  If you are a golfer you will want to hear why Tiger Woods has back pain and Arnold Palmer had a much longer career.  You will understand why Venus Williams grunts during a tennis serve and how mobility may be causing you more harm than good in some cases.  Do you slave in the kitchen batch cooking only to order out or end up throwing those frozen concoctions away? 

Has COVID made your present and future quality or quantity of life better?  Does common sense and compassion vanished in the last few months?

Yes I will give you my perspective on these topics today.  Remember it is mine.  I hope you also have a perspective, and it does not have to be the same as mine for me to respect you and welcome your emails or comments. 

Let's be kind to each other.  I am sure it will make the world a better place.  

Thank you for listening.  I would love for you to share this podcast with your friends.  Check out our website to find out how a compassionate wellness medical practice works.  We would love to have you on our team.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 252 with Jeff Galloway

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Plant based nutrition gives you a lot of energy.  The next step is upping your exercise.  The American Heart Association suggests 150 minutes of cardiovascular exercise each week.  This is a minimum.  In fact there is no amount of exercise that has been shown to decrease cardiac fitness.  

Exercise is the best medicine to treat depression and reduce stress.  It has even been shown to improve memory.  As we age we loose muscle and bone mass often leading to joint instability and failure resulting in a need for replacement.  The best way to build muscle and bone is to do weight bearing exercise and running is the perfect fit.  

If you have not ran in a while or have told yourself you cannot run, it may just be a perception that has been holding you back.

Today's episode with Jeff Galloway will show you that you can run at any age and even complete a marathon! We discussed his Run Walk Run method that decreases the risk of injury and eases you into running longer and longer distances.  

Put your shoes on, and take this episode for a walk or a run, walk, run.  If you are interested in learning more or would be interested in a plant based running weekend.  Contact me at Jami@doctordulaney,.com.  Visit the website and sign up for our monthly newsletter.  Join our group of members desiring to live a healthy lifespan!

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Have you ever had back pain? Hip pain? Sciatica? Have you been told to do crunches and sit-ups to strengthen your core?  What is core stability? Spinal health?  Once a bad back always a bad back?  Is walking bad when you have back pain? Dr McGill and I discuss these topics and more during today's episode.  Go on over to and check out some video links to the episode as well.  Our members will get a link to the complete video.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast 250: Process vs Outcome

I would like to share some perspective with you today.  Let's make healthy fun.  Let's make plant based nutrition worth the chase and challenge.  Let me help you enjoy the process of being healthy.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 249: It is all about HOPE

Welcome! and Thank you for listening! Today's episode is timely.  It is spring, and there is hope for new life as we emerge from winter.  There is hope that the COVID-19 virus is not a virulent as some would suggest and that the infected numbers are going down and people are getting well.  There is hope that we have learned what we can do to make ourselves more healthy to fight infectious disease and stress.  

Today I speak of a personal perspective on Hope.  Hope should never be taken away.   How doing something is better than doing nothing.  The little things do really matter, and positive thoughts do really matter.  I believe this is one of my most important podcasts because everyone can relate.  Motivational speeches inspire for a while, but we really need to focus on what we can do.  Action.  I believe the best version of ourselves can only be attained by moving forward.  Celebrate what you can do today, and build on that tomorrow.  I will never take anyone's hope away.  I believe everyone has a chance at health.  But, you have to have a plan.  If you are interested in learning more, email me at and visit the website at

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast: Episode 247 Join me for a Live Audio Conference

Welcome and Thank You for listening!  Today's episode is a preview of Saturday's live audio conference.  Our world has had some radical change recently with COVID-19.  We are facing new health worries on top of chronic diseases.  With that comes new decisions about our future health.  Who is ultimately responsible for our safety and health?  The ability to alter the genomes of viruses, bacteria and humans is here.  Along the way, these advances have lead to some life saving medications and techniques, but they have also had some very negative results.  Understanding the importance of how these new discoveries can affect your future health choices is very important.  Genes, environment, and chance all play a role.  

Take control of your own health now.  I'll give you a few suggestions on this episode.  Tune in Saturday for a much more focused live discussion.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast: Episode 246-Time to Take Back Your Health

Welcome and Thank you for listening.  COVID-19 is still on my mind.  It is the first time we have had to confront a significant mortality risk from an infectious disease.  Our ability to fight infection rests with our current state of health.  Diabetes and hypertension as well as other lifestyle diseases are significant risk factors for having a weakened immune system and a potentially more difficult time fighting off COVID-19.  

Today is the day to prepare for the social distancing and potential quarantining by gathering needed supplies.  It is also a time to take control of your lifestyle diseases.  Eating plant strong, avoiding processed foods, animal products, and oils is key to boosting your immune system as well as reversing lifestyle diseases.  Let's make the world a healthier place.  Start today at home by fixing healthy plant strong meals and getting some exercise.  Each day is an opportunity to get healthier.  

Our livestream audio conference is still on for March 28, 2020.  We will stream live lectures and have a Q and A session.  The conference will be recorded for viewing at your convenience for a month.  Lecture slides will be distributed so that you can follow along.  Recipes for the meals we were going to serve  will also be emailed.  Go on over to and reserve your ticket now or go to and get your ticket to the 2020 Plant Based Audio Conference.  Email me at with questions. 

As always thank you for listening.  Be Plant Strong and Be Healthy.
