Plant-based Nutrition Quick Start Guide

Designed to serve as a roadmap for patients or clients desiring to exercise greater control over their health through their dietary lifestyle, the PBN Quick Start Guide is filling the void! Since its debut just a few short weeks ago, over 5,000 copies have been ordered by clinicians from across the U.S. and Canada.  Many are saying that this is “the best” educational resource they’ve ever encountered for their practices!
Soon to be translated into Spanish, The Plantrician Project developed this educational tool as a resource for healthcare professionals who are committed to a dietary lifestyle-first treatment approach, ‘prescribing’ a whole food plant-based way of living.  Click here to request a PDF download.
We’ll be reprinting in January, so place your Quick Start Guide order now for early 2016 delivery.

"Professionally, I have an abundance of job satisfaction – something that can be elusive in primary care. This satisfaction comes from knowing that I am able to tell the truth to my patients and help navigate them through their doubts and dilemmas. The beauty and sacredness of physician-patient relationship is lifted to a new level when healing occurs through whole food, plant-based nutrition."
