PTP295 - Dean Ornish
In: Podcast0

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Dr. Dean Ornish, the pristine innovator of Lifestyle Medicine. He is not only a brilliant doctor but a brilliant man. When they finished this interview Adam turned to Shoshana and simply said “wow”. To think Dr. Ornish almost lost his life before he could figure it all out and help others do the same. Whether you are looking to be happier, have a healthier heart or healthier anything, you will find many tidbits to take away from this episode. And if you’re looking to help with the grassroots movement, listen very carefully to the secrets. Of course, we talk about the 4 components of his new book he wrote with his beautiful wife called Undo It!, which are to eat well, move more, stress less & love more. And you will be quite entertained by the penis test!

Dean Ornish, M.D., is the founder and president of the nonprofit Preventive Medicine Research Institute, clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, and the author of six books, all national bestsellers. He has received numerous honors, including the Outstanding Young Alumnus Award from the University of Texas, Austin, and the National Public Health Hero Award from the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Ornish was recognized as a “TIME 100 Innovator;” by Life magazine as “one of the 50 most influential members of his generation;” by People magazine as “one of the most interesting people of the year;” and by Forbes magazine as “one of the world’s seven most powerful teachers.”
