Today host, Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian, chats with Dr. Pam Popper, Ph.D., N.D. who is a naturopath, nutritionist and the Executive Director of The Wellness Forum. We'll discuss how to improve our diet and lifestyle for preventing, reversing, and stopping the progression of degenerative disease. The Wellness Forum offers educational programs designed to assist individuals in changing their health outcomes through improved diet and lifestyle habits; to assist employers in reducing the costs of health insurance and medical care for employees; and to educate health care professionals about how to use diet and lifestyle for preventing, reversing, and stopping the progression of degenerative disease. Dr. Popper is currently featured in two widely distributed documentaries, “Processed People” and “Making a Killing” and will be appearing in the full-length feature film, “Forks Over Knives” about diet and health. Dr. Popper is the author of several books and cookbooks, as well as several programs offered for continuing education credits for medical professionals. She is the Founder of The Wellness Forum Foundation, which offers programming in schools designed to improve children’s health and well-being through better nutrition. Dr. Popper serves on the Physician’s Steering Committee for the Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine in Washington D.C.
