Dr. Scott Harrington is the founder of Vegan Primary Care, an online family medicine practice. He is now licensed in 42 states including Texas. So make sure to listen to the entire episode to learn how you can get started as a patient. In this episode, we learn Dr. Harrington's personal story of why he became vegan and why he now prescribes plant-based foods to his patients.

He also tells us about his Meal Planner which extends "Meatless Mondays" to everyday of the week: https://www.dietnosis.com/vegan-meal-planner/ Vegan Primary Care is the creation of Dr. Scott Harrington, a board-certified Family Physician with 17 years of experience in Family Medicine. Beginning his career using standard methods, he personally adopted a plant-based diet in 2012. Since then he experienced dramatic improvement in his energy levels, exercise endurance and recovery time. His weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, and hormone levels all normalized. This convinced Dr. Harrington to focus on teaching patients what he learned, and the effects were impressive – many patients suffering with chronic illnesses improved dramatically, and many were able to stop all their medications.

"As board-certified physicians, we provide many of the same services as any primary care doctor you see in person – writing prescriptions, ordering imaging or lab tests, and making referrals. But rather than rely only on the Western model of medicine, which manages chronic conditions with pills, we believe in plant-based care that seeks to achieve optimum health through a whole-foods plant-based diet, enjoyable exercise and maintaining quality relationships."
