Hi Path Menders,
Today I’m excited to be speaking with plant based Healer and author Dr. Brooke Goldner, M.D. Dr. Goldner is a board-certified medical doctor and the best-selling author of Goodbye Lupus. She has been featured in multiple documentaries, and has shared the stage with Drs. Dean Ornish, Caldwell Esselstyn, Michael Greger and T. Colin Campbell.
She was featured on the front cover of Vegan Health & Fitness Magazine twice.
She is the author of Goodbye Lupus and Green Smoothie Recipes to Kick-Start Your Health and Healing, and star of the DVDs Goodbye Lupus and Super Healthy Meals for Your Family. She is a graduate of the Temple University School of Medicine, was Chief Resident at UCLA-Harbor Residency in Psychiatry, and holds a certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University.
She is the founder of VeganMedicalDoctor.com and creator of the Hyper-nourishing Healing Protocol for Lupus Recovery.
After naturally healing her own body of Lupus, her current mission is to reach as many people with disease as possible to help them heal and lead healthy, meaningful lives.
