In this episode of Veggie Doctor Radio, I have a conversation with Dr. Laura Freeman about her journey into plant-based nutrition and lifestyle medicine. 


About featured guest:

Dr. Laura Freeman obtained her Medical Degree from the University of Edinburgh in 2006. She completed her vocational training in General Practice in Manchester in 2011. Between May 2012 and May 2019, after attaining full accreditation from the Medical Council of Canada, Dr. Freeman ran her own Family Medicine practice in midtown Toronto, taught medical students at the University of Toronto and worked with the MedicalCouncil of Canada as an examiner for International Medical Graduates.


Both within and outside of her General Practice, Dr. Freeman has developed a strong interest for plant based nutrition and optimising health through lifestyle choices. In 2019, Dr. Freeman became a diplomat of the International Board for Lifestyle Medicine. In her position as Medical Director for Plant-Based Health Online, she leads a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals in a first of its kind, online plant-based healthcare service.


Her focus is putting her passion in Lifestyle Medicine into practice for her patients and watching the incredible success of their lifestyle interventions.  Dr. Freeman has been commended by her colleagues and patients alike for her unwavering calm and kind demeanour, her compassion and care for her patients as well as her sound clinical knowledge, skill and judgment. Her patients have endorsed her input for optimising their diet, prescribing individualised exercise prescriptions, stress management and improving sleep habits.


Dr. Laura Freeman also certified as a CHIP (Complete Health Improvement Program) Practitioner. She is also on the advisory board for Plant Based Health Professionals UK and is a course tutor for the UK’s first ever online plant based nutrition course at Winchester University. She runs regular health workshops and ‘Walk with a Doc’ walking groups in her community.
