In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Dr. Baxter Montgomery all about complex medical illness and a prescription for better health. While Dr. Montgomery has been practicing cardiology and has many patients with so many other illnesses that all overlap. He is doing everything he can to encourage his patients to adopt a whole food plant-based diet, but he finds that there are so many patients who are not willing to go the extra mile and are still not getting all the results they expected by doing so. You will hear how childhood, past experience, and environment set many up for their health and what fundamental approaches can be taken.
Dr. Baxter Montgomery is a Board Certified Cardiologist with years of experience in the latest medical practices and nutritional health. He is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology at the University of Texas in Houston, a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC) and the founder and president of the Houston Cardiac Association (HCA). Having seen many patients suffer the consequences of chronic heart disease, Dr. Montgomery founded the Montgomery Heart & Wellness Center in 2006 with the mission to reverse and prevent life-threatening illnesses. Located in Houston, Texas, The Montgomery Heart & Wellness Center is a state-of-the-art wellness facility complete with all the technology and resources to provide comprehensive medical and wellness care.
Combining his medical practice with a food-driven lifestyle intervention, Dr. Montgomery introduces patients to a novel food classification system that helps reverse chronic conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, obesity and diabetes without the use of medications or surgeries. He has refined this process over the past 10 years with profound positive results in severely ill patients. In addition to running Montgomery Heart & Wellness, Dr. Montgomery does other hospital procedures and teaches young physicians. He is also the author of The Food Prescription for Better Health, a comprehensive guide for reversing chronic illnesses.
