“The Plant Based Doctors site is a database of health care practitioners that understand the importance of nutrition and support a whole foods plant based diet. Our mission is to connect you with a nearby health care practitioner who can provide the support and guidance needed for your long-term success.”
”The list includes general practitioners ob/gyns, pediatricians, naturopathic doctors, surgeons and much, much more! And for my international (outside of the U.S.) Herbies, there are listings for you too!
”On this site you will be able to find doctors in your area who understand plant-based nutrition. You will be able to suggest physicians to the directory so that others in your area may benefit from the referral. And, you can suggest questions that people might use to ask a physician about their knowledge and feelings about the vegan lifestyle. “
