PlantWise Was Created to Be Shared

We all need a little motivational push sometimes. That’s why we created PlantWise — to give people who want to change their health trajectory the encouragement they need to embrace a whole-food, plant-based diet.

In PlantWise, national lifestyle medicine experts expose the results of poor lifestyle choices. They explain why it’s so difficult to break the cycle of bad habits and the powerful benefits of eating whole plants. Sharing PlantWise with your patients can inspire them to strive for a better, healthier and more fulfilled life.

Resources for You and Your Patients

Bring plant-based nutrition to your practice or health care facility and motivate your patients through the PlantWise film. Some physicians believe so strongly in the science presented in the film that they now prescribe certain patients to watch it as part of their treatment. Below you’ll find resources to help you create your own PlantWise program and learn from like-minded physicians across the country.

    Project PlantWise Pilot Project: Using the PlantWise Film in a Healthcare Setting

    Before the film's national release, PlantWise was embedded into the AdventHealth Winter Park Hospital order system so that patients diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes would be given a standing order by their physician to watch the PlantWise film. The film was the cornerstone of a patient education program to motivate hospitalized patients with diabetes to make intensive lifestyle changes guided by expanded existing programs with demonstrated effectiveness.
