Episode Description

Dr Alan Desmond - doctor, Gastroenterologist, General Physician and author of The Plant-Based Diet Revolution. Alan currently lives with his family in Devon, UK and works as a full time NHS Consultant. Certified in both Gastroenterology and General Internal Medicine, Alan completed his specialist training in Ireland and Oxford. He has a special interest in the role of diet in the prevention and treatment of digestive diseases.

As a doctor specialising in gut health, Alan has made evidence-based dietary advice an essential part of his clinical practice. The results he has seen in his gastroenterology clinic have led him to become a dedicated advocate for the gut health benefits, and overall health benefits, of a whole-food plant-based approach to nutrition.

Dr Alan Desmond believes that “We can transform our health and revolutionise our quality of life by simply eating more plants” and that “the evidence overwhelmingly supports a whole-food, plant-based diet as the optimal diet for human health and longevity. The more plant-based, the better”.

Alan has presented at numerous international conferences alongside renowned plant-based advocates & has also published several influential research papers in the field of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
