Did you know that the National Institutes of Health has advised that physicians prescribe food as medicine?
Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients especially those with high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or obesity.” – click here to READ THE STUDY
Hippocrates Docs is here to support YOU in spreading the word about a Plant-Based Whole Foods lifestyle for your patients and the public in general.
“Because changing habits and lifestyle is daunting without support.”
We make it easy…
Hippocrates Docs recognizes the immense power of lifestyle for optimal health as proven with the massive body of unbiased, peer reviewed, scientific research and as shown by the 7 Original Heroes of the movement. We advocate that people change lifestyle to be as compliant with those guidelines as possible. We also recognize that this is something that may take time and may need to be accomplished with baby-steps. We support those on the journey.
We ask that the Doctors joining us on this mission, advocate, teach and live a whole food, plant-based lifestyle, as well as commit, like all of our team has, to move even more towards your own optimal health.

The J1T4H Program consists of a series of weekly emails featuring a doctor teaching his/her specialty and the things they prescribe to their patients as a whole food, plant-based diet and lifestyle solution.
First, a 5-7 minute video on the Featured Doctor’s health topic is included in the weekly email communication to Subscribers. Subscribers are those who are curious to those who are well on their journey and advocates of a whole food, plant-based diet and lifestyle.
Subscriptions consist of a series of emails, delivered weekly, (Saturdays), inviting the subscriber to learn about a “Just 1 Thing (at a time) 4 Health” topic that the Featured Doctor believes is advocating for preventing and reversing chronic illness and debilitating disease.
In the video, the Featured Doctor challenges the audience to start a new habit that will shift their eating habits to the ones that medical science is proving will be a part of the solution to live healthier.
- All topics are congruent with the principles of a whole-foods, plant-based lifestyle.
- All topics are hosted by board-certified doctors, our “Featured Doctors”.
Following each email, the ‘Featured Doctor’ participates in a live video call (typically 1 hour) sharing their story and additional information on the topic that was presented in their challenge video for the email.
Every Tuesday, the ‘Physicians On Call’ weekly live Q&A broadcasts give Subscribers the opportunity to join the Featured Doctor and the J1T4H team in a Zoom video call with the Featured Doctor sharing more on the subject matter and answering questions from the J1T4H and the audience members.
