In today's interview, I'm honored to interview Brittany Jaroudi. Growing up, Brittany was always fearful that her parents would die. She had to witness her mother go through cancer three different times, and her father had a massive heart attack that led to triple bypass surgery and, eventually, stents and a defibrillator. Her dad now has diabetes and congestive heart failure. Brittany followed the same lifestyle as her parents through her childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood, eating a standard American diet. They ate take-out and lots of meat, dairy, and oil. Her struggles with weight began when she was only 8 years old, and by the time she was in her mid-20s, her eating habits had really caught up with her. She was 185 pounds! Her doctor diagnosed her with high blood pressure (150/90) and put her on two different blood pressure medications. Brittany had high cholesterol (total cholesterol: 242). Her anxiety was through the roof, with a resting heart rate in the 90s. Brittany's hs-CRP (high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation and cardiovascular disease risk) was extremely high, and she had chest pains. She thought, “This can’t be my life at 25 years old.” Brittany began researching ways to get herself out of the health crisis. She found the Forks Over Knives documentary, and it all clicked. She saw what the future would be if she stayed on her current path: heart disease, autoimmune disease, diabetes, and maybe even cancer. After watching the documentary, Brittany immediately went plant-based. She got rid of all the dairy, meat, and processed foods she had in her house. Since that day three years ago, she has lost 60 pounds; she no longer has high cholesterol (150 total); Brittany has high blood pressure (110/70); her resting heart rate is 60, and her hs-CRP is in the normal range!

During the interview, we discuss her journey to a plant-based diet, how to improve your skin's health, and much more! Dr. Bodemer has always been fascinated by how different health systems and cultures deal with health and illness.

In each country, Dr. Bodemer had opportunities to visit traditional hospitals and pharmacies and westernized facilities. The ways traditional and modern approaches to health were combined in these countries fascinated her, and she became more curious about other ways of healing. After Dr. Bodemer finished her Dermatology residency at the University of Wisconsin, she completed a fellowship in Integrative Medicine through the University of Arizona. Since then, her clinical practice has focused on combining general dermatology care with the philosophies and tools of integrative medicine. In 2015, when the American Board of Integrative Medicine (ABOIM) was approved, Dr. Bodemer took the certifying exam and now serves as a member of the ABOIM.

Simon Hill is a Physiotherapist and Nutritionist who is passionate about making nutritional information simple and accessible to make informed decisions about the food they feed themselves and their families. In 2008, Simon completed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and immediately began working as a Sports Physiotherapist in Melbourne both at a leading private practice and with professional AFL & VFL footballers. Over the years, however, Simon became increasingly curious about the role nutrition played in nourishing the body and preventing disease. Using his research skills developed during his honors degree, Simon dove deep into the available literature on nutrition & disease. He soon became fascinated by the vast evidence out there that proved that simple lifestyle changes could help people prevent and sometimes even reverse many of the leading chronic diseases that plague the western world today. Concerned with the fact that this information was not reaching people but was instead getting lost amidst the myriad of marketing ploys pushed by industries who were more interested in profits than the health and general well-being of the public, Simon shifted gears in his career undertaking a Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate and a post-graduate degree in Nutrition.

In this interview, I had the honor of speaking to Dr. Kim Scheuer M.D. about her journey to plant-based medicine. Kim Scheuer, MD, began her career as a traditional Family Practice physician. Despite eating healthier than most Americans and thinking she was fit, she struggled with weight issues until 47. While searching for a way to decrease her family history of cancer risk, Kim read The China Study. What she learned started a long and “fruitful” journey of discovering how to use a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet and Lifestyle Medicine to prevent, treat, and reverse chronic disease’s root causes. For the first time in her career, she could genuinely help herself and her patients heal rather than merely treat the symptoms of illnesses. One of her favorite parts of her new way of practicing medicine is to de-prescribe medications and help her patients become “younger every year” by adopting healthier lifestyle choices. On her journey, Dr. Scheuer has transitioned from the traditional medical group she ran and worked in for twenty years in Aspen, Colorado, to her lifestyle medicine practice DOKS Lifestyle Medicine: With her partner Derek Olsen, RN, who has also benefited from Lifestyle Medicine and a Whole Food Plant-Based diet, she has facilitated several Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP) courses. CHIP has improved her participants’ health and lives and many thousands of people worldwide over more than 30 years. Kim now lives and benefits from the lifestyle she recommends for her patients. Dr. Kim Scheuer is board certified in both Family Practice and Lifestyle Medicine. She also has a Master’s in Education as she feels that to be a good physician, one should be an educator first. She is conversant in Spanish and American Sign Language, which she uses to bring her knowledge to multiple communities. To work with Dr. Scheuer one on one:

Gabriel was a starting football player at the University of Nebraska until he suffered a career-ending back injury. At the time, he was also pursuing a degree in livestock production, but he began to do his research on diet and health after his injury. Unable to maintain his previously active lifestyle, Gabriel started searching for ways to lose weight and become healthy through his diet. In the process, Gabriel found that what he was learning in his classes contradicted what he was learning about health and contradicted his own beliefs about animal welfare and preserving the environment. Still, Gabriel chose to finish his degree while also pursuing his research into sustainable and ethical agricultural practices that promote health. Now 100 pounds lighter than his playing weight, Gabriel runs his blog, Plant-Based Gabriel, which is focused on helping individuals and families transition to a plant-based diet and vegan lifestyle.
