Boosting Health in Alaska with Plant-Based Power

In Anchorage, residents are actively engaged in growing their own vegetables as part of an initiative highlighted in a photo by Kavelina Torres, APRN-Anchorage. Meanwhile, heart disease remains a leading cause of death in the U.S., with the CDC reporting that 1 in every 5 deaths is due to heart disease. Adopting a plant-based diet can reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 25%, and incorporating regular exercise, stress management, and good sleep practices can further decrease the risk.

In this episode of Line One, host Dr. Jillian Woodruff and her guests explore the benefits of a plant-based diet and naturopathic medicine. Dr. Justin Clark serves as the host, with guests including Dr. Cameron O’Connell, ND, FABNE—a practitioner of naturopathic medicine associated with Coordinates Health Care in Kenai, Copper River, and Yukon River, and Zaneta Stetsunova—a co-founder of Anchorage VegFest and creator of the Sunday Fresh Market at O’Malley in Anchorage.

The episode features resources, recommended documentaries, and easy-to-replicate recipes provided by the guests. Viewers can find Line One’s favorite health and science links on their website and can subscribe to receive updates on Line One: Your Health Connection and other Alaska Public Media podcasts.
