What started as a simple tweet, turned into an episode on the Plant Based Eating for Health Show with Dr. Matthew Nagra.
The response to the tweet was incredible, and obviously hit a nerve with thousands of men and women around the globe.
“Why is it that no one seems to bat an eye when a parent feed their kids unhealthy, garbage fast food, but the minute they say, “I’m raising my children on a healthy, whole food, plant-based diet” people scream child abuse? Really?? Have u checked stats on disease & obesity 4 kids?”
Based on the responses the tweet received, I put out a request to my Twitter followers for a medical professional who advocates for children eating a healthy, plant-based diet.
Within minutes I received a message from Dr. Nagra, who had been referred to me from my friend and colleague, Sandra Nomoto.
Sandra is the author of the newly released book, Vegan Marketing Success Stories (available at Vegan Marketing Success Stories (lulu.com)
One thing about the vegan community is people know people. Based on the recommendation by Sandra, followed by watching a previous interview Dr. Nagra did about the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle for children, I just knew I had to have him on the show.
Dr. Nagra grew up in Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island. From a young age he struggled with multiple health issues such asthma, allergies, and weight management.
It wasn’t until taking control of his own health and transitioning to a plant-based diet that Dr. Nagra noticed significant improvements, which were ultimately the catalyst for the career he chose. His mission is to help others do the same.
Dr. Nagra is board certified in prescriptive authority, immunizations, advanced injection therapies, intravenous therapies, and acupuncture. He also received the Plant-based Nutrition Certification from Cornell University and the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies.
Using an evidence-based approach, he creates individualized treatment protocols for each patient based on their health goals and unique lifestyles.
Dr. Nagra has a particular passion for plant-based/vegan nutrition, physical medicine, and chronic disease treatment.
As the author of multiple articles on the subject, Dr. Nagra realizes there’s a lack of understanding around plant-based nutrition amongst healthcare professionals, sometimes resulting in practitioners recommending non-vegan treatment options to their vegan patients.
His aim is to help that population thrive while maintaining their vegan lifestyle if that’s their goal.
