Have you ever received bad nutrition advice from your doctor?
According to a recent survey, only 25% of medical schools require a nutrition course, and med students receive, on average, just 19.6 contact hours of nutrition instruction.
There is more conflicting health advice than ever, and unfortunately many people leave their doctor even more confused about what to eat to lose weight and gain health.
Lack of support is one of the biggest barriers to following through with a lifestyle change, and it’s especially hard when your healthcare provider isn’t on your team.
Our mission is to give you the tools and support you need to make and sustain lifestyle changes, so we’ve spent the last few months working to develop a new free resource.
The aim? To connect you with a healthcare practitioner who understands and supports the plant-based lifestyle.
The site hasn’t officially launched yet, but we wanted to let our DLTC family know about it first before it goes live.
We are thrilled to introduce you to the Plant-Based Doctors website.
The site is a free, international database of plant-based healthcare practitioners. You can search for a practitioner by location, credentials and specialty.
We owe Lindsay S. Nixon of Happy Herbivore a huge thank you for providing the initial list of practitioners.
And now for this to become a truly great resource, we need your help. This site is community managed, which means that we don’t provide the information — you do!
So if know of a plant-based health care practitioner that isn’t yet listed, please take a moment and add them to the database.
We invested our own money and months of time in creating this site, and we are always more than happy to invest in your success.
But if you’d like to consider a small donation to offset some of the initial costs and future web hosting and management, we’d greatly appreciate it.
We hope this new resource helps you build an even better lifestyle support team. If you have any thoughts on how to make the site even better, we’d love to hear them.
We will never sell your information or spam you, ever.
