The digital face of the plant-based community, PlantX Life (CSE: VEGA) (Frankfurt: WNT1) (OTCQB: PLTXF), has launched a new YouTube series titled ‘Medically Speaking’ intended to promote plant-based education and offer consumers the necessary knowledge-based resources to help them attain their plant-based objectives.
“‘Medically Speaking’ is designed as an informative series that centers around conversations with the PlantX Medical Advisory Board on plant-based topics. Beyond providing evidence-based information to clarify potential questions and knowledge gaps in the plant-based space, the series also aims to offer creative solutions to overcoming plant-based challenges as approved and discussed by trusted healthcare professionals,” explained PlantX in a news release announcing the launch (https://nnw.fm/Cglxy).
In the first episode, which went live on January 20, host Mr. Adam Kruger engaged Dr. Edward Tam, a clinical hepatologist (liver expert) based in Vancouver, British Columbia. In highlighting the proven benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, Dr. Tam touched the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, a condition attributable to lifestyle choices, noting that medical literature has evidenced that a more plant-based diet can be healthy for the liver and general wellbeing.
Dr. Tam also dispelled the myth that adopting a plant-based lifestyle needs an all-or-nothing approach, underlining that making incremental changes to one’s diet as one journeys gradually toward a 100% plant-based diet “makes sense.” It eliminates the challenges associated with an abrupt shift from an omnivorous diet to 100% plant-based. According to Dr. Tam, this gradual approach leads to a more sustainable change.
In addition, Dr. Tam shared the advice he offers patients attempting to modify their lifestyles. “I think that people are just used to the way they have always eaten. People are not opposed to change. It’s just that they haven’t really thought about it much, and they haven’t been presented with the thought of making change and what possible benefits can come along. For me, [while] counseling patients and asking them to consider a different way of eating, it’s more about introducing the idea of making the change and talking about what’s going to happen at the end of that – a healthier life,” Dr. Tam added, further highlighting that his counsel aims to give patients the steps to get there.

This interactive discussion is the first of many others that are also part of the new series. The episodes will focus the conversation around high-impact and novel topics, discussing how plant-based lifestyles can improve health and wellbeing.
As part of the series, Kruger will engage guests drawn from PlantX’s Medical Advisory Board, with the first season featuring experienced healthcare professionals with a passion for promoting plant-based living and wellness. Besides Dr. Edward Tam, other guests include Amy Gensel, a registered dietitian; Dr. Paul Gross, a family physician; and Dr. Eva Weinlander, a clinical professor and family physician.
“As the interest in plant-based diets increases, so does the need and demand for engaging plant-based educational opportunities. ‘Medically Speaking’ was created as a dynamic and evidence-based educational tool that can explain plant-based myths and misinformation and empower people to overcome barriers to change,” commented PlantX Founder Sean Dollinger.
The new series feeds into the company’s strategy to leverage education to make the plant-based lifestyle more accessible. Consumers interested in starting out on the plant-based journey can also access a vast library of online videos offering tips from experts and showcasing delicious plant-based recipes from different locales.
