Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 241: Have You Had Your Flavonoids Today?

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Everything we need for optimal health and wellness, we can get from plants.  We can grow plants sustainably and compassionately, as well as being able to provide enough food for all.  Plants make flavonoids as protection for themselves.  They can't run from predators such as bugs, worms and poisons.  When we consume plants we get their defense mechanisms in the form of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds as well as anti-bacterial and anti-viral compounds.  

There is a lot of confusing information about nutrition.  Just because we can survive for a while eating poor food choices does not make them optimal.  Our choices come at a cost to us and to our environment.  

Eat simply and humanely.  Eat plants.  

Join us March 28, 2020 for our Fifth Annual Plant Based Nutrition Conference.  Better yet, spend a week with us beginning March 23 -28 to kick start your journey to becoming healthy and fit.  Check out the website at doctordulaney.com for more information.  Sign up for our newsletter.  Email me at jami@doctordulaney.com for more information.  Thank you for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 240-Houston Half Marathon, Running and Pregnancy and Why Plant Based Nutrition Makes Sense

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Addie Majnaric RDN and I ran the Houston Half Marathon this past weekend.  She is 22 weeks pregnant and feeling great.  Some would think eating plant based is not a good idea during pregnancy let alone running half marathons.  In reality being pregnant is not a disease, but it is a time to optimize the mother's health for her sake and the sake of the baby.  There are reports of running a marathon in the last few weeks of pregnancy but changes in ligaments and and joints tend to make the last trimester not that comfortable for running.  If you are not a runner, then pregnancy is not really the time to start.  But, a walking program is an excellent idea.  A plant based diet is an excellent way to get the needed fiber to develop a good microbial system in mom and her child.  A baby receives more genes from the mother than father because of microbe genes.  Junk food, low fiber diet leads to a microbe population that may be associated with more inflammation.  We will talk about this and much more.  

Exciting times are just around the corner.  Join Addie and I for a Wellness Immersion vacation March 23-28, 2020 in sunny southwest Florida.  It will be a fun filled week of plant based education, cooking, and exercise.  There will be private consultations with both of us and hands on cooking technique experiences.  It is a great time of year in Florida, so make your reservations now by going to doctordulaney.com and signing up.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 239 The Heart Benefits of Movement with a Plant Based Diet

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  I have been running marathons for over 19 years.  I have displayed my finishers medals and shirts in my office as a way to motivate my members on the importance of exercise.  I have a few members that have run marathons, but I cannot claim any of their motivation.  My thinking has been that if I can, anyone can.  This week a study came out to support that thought and take it a step further.  Running and training for a marathon can actually improve the function of your aorta.  The aorta becomes more elastic; in essence running a marathon makes one's aorta younger. 

Just think of the possibilities of training for a marathon and eating plant based!  The blood vessels will be bathed in nitric oxide turning the clock back even further making them even more elastic and healthy.  

But, if we eat a perfect plant based diet and exercise only to have toxins from the environment rain down on us and infect the very air we breathe, we are still being harmed.   I am talking about our environmental problem with plastics.  I invite you to look at the plastic that you discard in a single day.  The cling wrap, produce bags, plastic vegetable cartons.  It is massive.  In this podcast I will share some things that I am going to improve in 2020 and give you some ideas on how you can become more healthy by reducing your plastic waste.  

I would love to meet you! Go to doctordulaney.com and sign up for our Fifth Annual Charlotte County Plant Based Nutrition Conference, March 28, 2020.  Join us for a Whole Week at our Immersion Program.  This is a great way to accelerate your movement to optimal health and wellness.  We will personally be exercising with you each day, doing private consultations with myself and Addie Majnaric, RDN, along with daily nutritional education and cooking demonstrations.  You can even meet the Diva!!

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 238- New Studies this Year that Highlight the Importance of a Healthy Lifestyle

Welcome! and Thank you for listening!  There are many naysayers about plant based nutrition.  One frequently sited reason is there are few supporting studies.  Not only is that false but there are less and less studies supporting traditional medicine as the best option for lifestyle diseases.  Nutrition and exercise remain the only methods to reverse lifestyle diseases.  Sure medicines allow people to live with their illness, but they continue to decline.

This episode highlights a few of the head turning studies this year in the medical community.  I will also give you a glimpse into my holiday food and activities.  Enjoy.

High fructose corn syrup linked to increased colon cancer leading to a significant rise in colon cancer in young people

Eating an egg daily can significantly increase your risk for cardiovascular disease and all death from all causes.

Genetic risk for dementia does not increase the risk for actual dementia in those living a healthy lifestyle.

High sodium intake such as that seen in the standard diet increases the risk for gastric cancer.

What do you plan to do in 2020 to improve your health? I will share some of my goals for 2020.  

Thanks for joining me.  Go to doctordulaney.com to sign up for our newsletter, get your tickets for our plant based nutrition conference, and sign up for our immersion week.  Email me at jami@doctordulaney.com with questions.  It is time to improve your health span.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 237: Happy Holidays!

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  I hope your holidays are happy and plant strong. It isn't easy this time of year.  There are many temptations.  If you're eating or exercising routines are not well engrained, then it is even easier to give in to temptations.  Remember why you decided to become plant based and set yourself up with easy choices like bringing a covered dish to a holiday party or looking at the restaurant menu in advance so that you can commit to a healthy choice before the peer pressure sets in.  

I would like to challenge you to give a plant based gift this year.  You can make a give such as a soup or fruit basket.  Perhaps a gift certificate to a vegetable market.  A plant based cookbook or other plant strong book is also a good idea.  I know a great cookbook; Plant Based Wellness Cookbook, three generations of plant based cooking, the Doctor, the Dietitian and the Diva.  

There is a special treat at the end of the podcast: The Twelve Days of Plant Based Christmas.  I hope you enjoy.  If you would like a copy of the words, sign up for our newsletter at doctordulaney.com

Don't forget to get your tickets to our 5th Annual Plant Based Nutrition Conference, March 28, 2020 in Port Charlotte, Florida.  Link is on the website.  

Thank you for listening and Happy Healthy Plant Strong Holidays!

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 236-CIM Race Report

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  The California International Marathon is in the books.  If you are a runner, I highly recommend this race.  I have been running marathons since 2001 and have completed over 25 marathon races.  I did not grow up a runner but started running in my late thirties as a way to stay in shape and fend off diabetes and cardiovascular disease.  I grew up golfing which seems a lot different than running, but there are some similarities.  There is a large mental component to both sports.  Your head can certainly get in the way.  I always thought you could tell a lot about a person by how they handled themselves on the golf course.  Running a marathon is quite similar in that there are obstacles along the way with the ultimate outcome affected by how one confronts those obstacles.  If that sounds a lot like life, well, then it is.  Not every day is a good one, but there is always something to be learned and cherished.  

I discuss my race in this episode, and yes, I chose to race this marathon not just run it to complete the task. I hope you find my account entertaining and can apply my lessons to your own challenges be they physical or nutritional.  After all, life is a marathon and you can affect the outcome by how you choose to live it.  Enjoy the journey and learn the lessons along the way.  

Thank you for listening.  Make sure to visit the website at doctordulaney.com or email me at Jami@doctordulaney.com with questions or comments.  Pick up a copy of our cookbook at Amazon or click the link on the website.  Get your tickets to our nutrition conference March 28, 2020.  They will make a great gift.  

I would greatly appreciate a 5 start rating on iTunes or Amazon if you enjoy the show or book.  Thanks.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 235-Too Much Food, Not Enough Exercise

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Did you take in too much food this weekend and not enough exercise?  That is the norm for this time of year.  It is not too late to get things back under control.  The holiday season is a time of over eating and under exercising.  With the average American taking in 4000 calories on Thanksgiving day followed by excessive intake on the days that follow, it could take 7-10 days to work those excess calories off.  That would translate into running about 6 miles a day for the next week while decreasing daily intake down to pre holiday levels.  Let's face it, cutting back a little is not going to cut it.  

Studies discussed on this episode: How much exercise is too much? Are there quick fixes for knee pain and torn hamstrings? Should you add pomegranates to your diet? When do people realize they are overweight?  Are our current weight loss stratagies effective?

Check out our website at doctordulaney.com to find out about our immersion week and yearly plant based nutrition conference.  We will take you to a new level in health and wellness.  Need a stocking stuffer?  Head over to amazon and pick up a copy our our Plant Based Wellness Cookbook, three generations of cooking with the Doctor, the Dietitian, and the Diva.   Email me at jami@doctordulaney.com with questions about the immersion week or how you can join our membership practice.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast: Episode 234 What do Paula Dean and E-cigs Have in Common?

Welcome! and Thank you for Listening.  What does Paula Dean have to do with E-Cigs? How different is cheesy grits and bacon from E cigs when it comes to health.  You cannot live on E cigs, but you can survive in some form eating greasy "comfort" foods as she describes.  However, both will ultimately get you a shelf of medications and a multipage medical record.  There is outrage about the 40 deaths and over 2000 people that became ill this year linked with E-cigs, but we readily turn a blind eye to nutrition as the main ingredient linked to hundreds of thousands of lives lost each year.  

What is the best way to treat coronary artery disease.  This week a new study called the Ischemia Trial was presented.  It is great news for those adopting a plant based diet that can reverse cardiovascular disease.  It is also a testimony that we do not have a medical therapy that reverses cardiovascular disease despite millions of dollars performing procedures and prescribing medical cocktails.  

I hope you enjoy as I ponder these questions this week. Remember to visit the website at doctordulaney.com to learn about our practice, sign up for the newsletter, or register for our educational opportunities.  Email me at jami@doctordulaney.com

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast: Episode 233-Save the Turkeys

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Save a Turkey.  Wouldn't it be nice if we had a peaceful Thanksgiving that promoted health and wellness?  I am not wishing for it, but I intend to do my best to live it.  No animal will give its life so that I can be thankful for having too much to eat.  

Nutrition is the leading cause of disease in this country.  It is not too little but too much.  The solution is so simple to most of our health problems and perhaps will go along way to cure the ultimate disease, aging.  Lifestyle diseases are just markers of aging.  They can be delayed for sure by exercising and eating a plant based diet.  But the time is now.  Not tomorrow or next Thanksgiving, but now.  Take the turkey off the table.  Take the oil out of the gravy.  Take the dairy out of the pie.  Take back your health.  Others will eventually follow, but only if you are brave enough to lead the way.  I talk about this and much more during this episode.  

Email me at Jami@doctordulaney.com with questions about our practice and mission to combat aging and lifestyle diseases.  Peace and health to you and your family.  Check out our website at doctordulaney.com for more information about our practice, our immersion program, our yearly conference and much more.  Sign up for our newsletter on the website to get monthly health tips and recipes.  

Thank you for listening.
