Dr. Scott Stoll on plant-based living from his perspective as both an MD and an evangelical Christian.
Dr. Stoll is the co-founder of the Plantrician Project, the International Plant Based Nutrition Healthcare Conference, the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and the Regenerative Health Institute, a unique collaborative project with the Rodale Institute that integrates health. He is a member of the Google FoodLab, serves on the advisory board at Whole Foods for their healthcare clinics and served as a member of the Whole Foods scientific and medical advisory board. Dr.Stoll is the Chairman of the board for the Plantrician Project and chief medical director for the Rouxbe cooking school.
Every year Dr. Stoll hosts the very popular one week health immersion, Dr. Stoll’s total health immersion in Naples, Florida, and helps attendees recover lost health, overcome addictions, and restore emotional balance. In addition to authoring several books and scientific articles, Dr. Stoll has appeared on numerous national shows including the Dr. Oz show, hosting a 2018 PBS special Food As Medicine, and numerous documentaries including Eating You Alive, Wait till its Free, and The Game Changers. As well as being a published author and member of the 1994 Olympic Bobsled Team, he is a highly sought-after international speaker. Dr. Stoll and his family live in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
This is one of my favorite interviews ever! Dr. Stoll is so knowledgeable and so articulate. I found myself smiling all through the live show. Here’s a quote: “The only thing we really own in life is our choices.” Yowza! And he also shares a nutritional study that explains how the deeply colored plant foods blow the pale ones out of the water, even though just about all plant foods are terrific.
Blast from the past! ~ If you’re fascinated by Dr. Stoll’s outreach to the Christian community, you’ll enjoy this episode with business journalist and Today Show contributor Suzy Welch (her husband, Jack Welch, is the legendary former CEO of GE) and her daughter, Eve Wetlaufer. Suzy is a devout evangelical Christian. Eve is more of an eclectic seeker. They’re both dedicated vegans and animal activists.
A shoutout to our sponsor, Complement. Developed by vegan dietitian Dr. Pamela Fergusson, and the NoMeat Athlete, Matt Frazier, Complement enables you to get your vitamin B12, vitamin D3, and the essential Omega 3 fatty acids (DHA & EPA) in a totally vegan form that you just spray into your mouth once a day and know that your already great diet now has the full complement of essential nutrients. Click here for more info and to order. Use the code MAINSTREETVEGAN for a 10% discount.
And now the good folks of Complement have a new product: Complement Plus. While everyone agrees that B12, vitamin D3, and the essential Omega 3 fatty acids are nutrients people eating plant-based diets (and a lot of other people besides) should not overlook, there are some other nutrients that it’s also easy to be short on, even with a well-chosen diet. To tackle this, Fergusson and Frazier joined forces with Joel Kahn, MD, and together developed Complement Plus, a supplement in tablet form that includes all the nutrients in Complement spray, along with zinc, iodine, selenium, and vitamin K2. Essential for blood clotting, healthy bones, and heart health, the only plant-food source of vitamin K2 is natto, an obscure, fermented soy food and one that is definitely an acquired taste (and smell). To get Complement Plus at a discount, simply go to www.alpineorganics.co (where you can order regular Complement, as well), but this time your discount code will be MAINSTREETVEGAN+.
