"Last year, I had an MI…which took me by complete surprise. I had NO risk factors at all. The cardiologist said it was stress related. After my stent, I decided that I would be very good about what I ate. Now…I always ate healthy foods (along with liking ‘junk food’ like everyone does…it tastes good!)…but decided that I would increase the amount of plants and reduce everything else. I did and had lots more energy, felt better, and a bonus…lost the ‘extra’ few kg I had accumulated (well…my clothing grew…it had shrunk in the closet before that!)."
- Dr. Rob Kerr, Family Physician

A reminder that your July challenge is to prescribe plant-rich by using our plant prescription tool.

We encourage you to use our EMR embedded plant-rich prescription tool to prescribe a plant rich diet to a patient. This prescription tool is compatible with Telus PSS, Oscar, Accuro, and P&P, and reduces risks of certain diseases, reverses some diseases, and improves mental and physical wellbeing.  

For more information about prescribing plant-rich diets, here is our handy infographic and check out the challenge email here!
