Podcast: Our Third Year Plant Based Wellness Practice Anniversary with Addie Majnaric, RDN

Welcome! and Thank you for listening!.  Today Addie Majnaric, RDN and I reflect on the three year anniversary of our plant based wellness practice.  There is nothing better than to be able to work with your plant based registered dietitian, daughter.  We are also very thankful for Barbara Dill, our front office person, and Dawn McMaster LPN, our plant based nurse.  Barbara, Dawn and I have worked together for 22 years and Addie grew up with them in our medical practice.  

The past three years have been a radical change from traditional cardiology that was largely hospital based with heart catheterizations and other procedures to a practice where nutrition class is at the heart of the practice. I could not be more happy to trade a catheter for a spatula! 

The biggest change has been the reversal of lifestyle diseases instead of just trying to control ever progressing diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension.  We are taking more people off of medications than prescribing new ones.  Hospitalizations are rare in our patients that range from 31 to 98 years young.  I have not had the need to do a heart catheterization in over 2 years!.  

The nutrition class provides a community of like minded individuals looking for wellness through nutrition and movement.  Our wellness challenges, developed by Addie Majnaric are aimed at making daily movement fun as well as a way to interact with others in the practice.  

We have members around the country that take part in our weekly Zoom nutrition class where we cook a recipe together and discuss the latest topics in health and wellness.  

I hope you find this anniversary podcast informative and entertaining.  We are grateful for the opportunity to help our members achieve optimal health and wellness through our plant based family community.  

Thank you for listening.  Check out our website at and email us at and  

You can purchase our cookbook that is used in class and at our home with recipes by the Doctor, the Dietitian, and the Diva.

    Congratulations on your third year as a wellness practice! I’m so grateful for your wealth of knowledge and your willingness to share with everyone. Addie is so correct, the average citizen is not being given the tools to deal with the infectious diseases and are not healthy enough to fend off a virus. We are told that these diseases are unavoidable, when in fact, most can be dealt with simply relying on the person’s immune system and consuming the correct foods.
