In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Justyna Sanders, M.D. about lifestyle medicine and how health is so much more than the food you put on your plate and the weights you lift in the gym. She stresses that there are five key principles that you need to work on in your life to reach optimal health. We tackle the popular questions like: Is IBS real, is organic really that important and how do we know how much we should be eating and of what? This is the episode you need to hear if you want to work towards total optimal health.
Justyna Sanders, MD, is the CEO and Founder of Prescription Lifestyle. After obtaining an Honors Bachelor of Kinesiology degree from McMaster University in Canada, she then went off to complete her Doctorate in Medicine from Poznan University of Medical Sciences in Poland.
As a visionary and advocate for the field of medicine and the health of humanity, Dr. Justyna Sanders created PrescriptionLifestyle.com. Her objective is to provide life-saving information, promote health, wellness and prevention via evidence-based recommendations. Her wish is that this platform will influence the use of whole food plant-based nutrition as medicine, aid in the unification of all evidence-based disciplines of medicine into one system, encourage the use of personalized medicine, focus on “whole-body” health and the underlying causes of disease, but most notably, to revere Lifestyle as Medicine.
Dr. Justyna Sanders’ sincere hope is that through her work, she will inspire and empower people to take autonomy of their own health and ultimately aid in the transformation of medicine.
