Note: **If you’re reading the show notes and you’re wondering why the photos are so huge, the answer is, I still haven’t figured out the new Squarespace image editing since they updated it, so if you know how to edit image size in Squarespace since the update - I’d LOVE to hear from you! :-)
If you’re new to this podcast, it is where I share people’s incredible stories of recovery after adopting a low fat, whole food, plant-based diet and healing from chronic diseases such as Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, and several forms of Cancers.

This episode was really special to me as it was with none other than Dr Michael Klaper who I was lucky enough to meet last year at the Melbourne leg of the Nutrition in Healthcare Symposium held by Lucy Stegley at Raw Events Australia!
Lucy has since joined forces with Dr Heleen Reox who was featured in episode 4 of the podcast, to form the not for profit organisation Doctors For Nutrition. Doctors For Nutrition will be hosting the Australasian Nutrition In Healthcare Conference from Feb 15 -17, 2019 so make sure to get your tickets so we can all hang out listening to Dr Neal Barnard and a host of super awesome, plant-based doctors and other experts! See you there!! :-)

He received postgraduate training in internal medicine, surgery, anesthesiology, and orthopedics at University of British Columbia teaching hospitals in Vancouver and obstetrics at the University of California at San Francisco. He has practiced acute care medicine in Hawaii, Canada, California, Florida and New Zealand.
Far more fulfilling to him is his current practice, focusing on health-promoting food and lifestyle choices to help people prevent the need for hospitalization and surgery. He has authored numerous articles on plant-based nutrition and is authoring a book on using plant-based medicine to arrest and reverse disease.
A long-time radio host and a pilot, Dr. Klaper has served as nutrition advisor to NASA’s programs for space colonists on the Moon and Mars and on the Nutrition Task Force of the American Medical Students Association.
Dr. Klaper has been featured in several films focused on health and sustainable living, including the award winning “Diet For A New America”, “What the Health”, and “Cowspiracy.”
To improve his own health, and to minimize suffering of sentient beings, Dr. Klaper adopted a plant-based diet in 1981. He makes the latest information on health and nutrition available through his website, DoctorKlaper.com, where visitors can find the numerous videos and DVDs he has produced, as well subscribe to his free newsletter, “Medicine Capsule.”
