Read our stories of transformation
Lisa – 3
Under Lisa’s care I feel healthier than I ever have. I have so much more energy and my hormonal acne and headaches disappeared. I’m convinced Lisa’s dietary advice helped me throughout the gruelling IVF process and I felt balanced and well. Our first round of IVF worked and we now have a beautiful baby girl!
Working with Lisa was such a positive experience. She was so professional and knowledgeable and helped me cut through all the dubious and outdated dietary information there is out there. I feel so grateful I came across Lisa and a fully plant based diet and definitely feel this had a huge impact on the outcome for us.
Laura – 4
Laura was very helpful and very kind, showing great interest and care. She is definitely very knowledgeable and she has that human touch that sometimes is missing in other healthcare specialists. I would recommend her to anybody, above all for her holistic approach to medicine always lined up and supported by the most recent scientific outcomes.
Lisa – 2
Lisa really helped me understand what a plant-based lifestyle is all about. Six weeks and I have noticed a huge difference – I feel really healthy. It’s great feeling so much better in myself.

What the experts say
Dr Michael Greger
“Doctors in the UK bring plant-based diets to the forefront of healthcare to help patients overcome chronic illness. This approach is not only best for patients but essential for the health of the planet and for preventing the next pandemic.”
Medical Doctor, Fellow of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, founder of NutritionFacts.org
Dr Aryan Tavakkoli
“The most powerful thing we can do to improve our health is to change our lifestyle.

Consultant physician with an interest in integrative oncology
Dr Kim Williams
“Plant based health online could not be more timely and relevant. We have been in a dual pandemic– cardiovascular disease and now SARS 2 COVID-19. Remarkably they have the same risk factors for a bad outcome, including obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes and an inflammatory cytokine-generating microbiome. As the science unfolds it is clear that plant-based nutrition could have saved millions of lives by reducing these risk and disease promoting factors. The promotion of plant-based nutrition education to improve diet quality can save millions.”
Past President American College of Cardiology
Dr Ayan Panja
“Plant based health online is a much needed resource in a world where long term non-communicable conditions are increasingly prevalent. This platform is a winning combination for those wanting to enjoy good long term health.”
Co-creator, Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine
Dr Caldwell B. Esselstyn
“Plant Based Health Online is a special place to acquire the knowledge of plant based nutrition which has profound enduring benefits for a life time avoidance of chronic illness. For many years I have responded to requests from the UK about plant based nutrition and how to implement it. I now feel confident to suggest that any of those inquires be referred to PBHO.”
Physician, Author, Former Director the Cleveland Clinic
Dr Chidi Ngwaba
“I’m delighted that Plant Based Health Online is bringing real health and wellness care into the 21st century. I wholeheartedly endorse & support this programme as it offers health, healing, & humanity to all.”
Lifestyle Medicine Doctor
Dr David L. Katz
“Lifestyle medicine in general, and a specific shift to high-quality, plant-predominant dietary patterns, are directly responsive to the great health imperatives of our time: reducing the burdens of obesity and chronic disease, improving cardiometabolic health, reducing the acute risks of COVID, and addressing the urgencies of planetary health and sustainability. This platform is an important, timely advance of great promise at the confluence of many needs.”
Past President, American College of Lifestyle Medicine
Dr Gemma Newman
“This online resource provides a genuine lifeline for those who want to empower themselves to health, and do so with the guidance of a healthcare professional. The world needs more ways to encourage plant-based eating and health lifestyle changes. This evidence based approach has the power to change lives. This is a real game changer!”

The offerings are extensive, the team is extraordinary, and the resources are engaging, informative, and reliable.

Author, speaker, plant-based pioneer
Dr Alan Desmond
“The science is clear: a whole-food, plant-based diet is the optimal choice for human health and longevity. I’m so pleased that this network of health professionals is making evidence-based lifestyle medicine far more accessible to the general public.”
Dr Saray Stancic
“PBHO is exactly what is needed in healthcare today. The real solution to the ongoing chronic disease epidemic is not to develop yet another drug to treat hypertension or diabetes, instead it is to educate the public on the importance of our lifestyle choices. PBHO offers support to reclaim control of our health and live to our greatest potential, free of chronic disease. I’m so proud of my extraordinary colleagues, Dr. Freeman and Dr. Kassam, for creating the exact prescription needed to truly heal our global communities at the time when it is most needed.”
