Yvonne O'Halloran

Using their professional experience, Dr Laura Freeman and Dr Shireen Kassam have launched a first of its kind healthcare service to help patients improve their health.

Described as the ‘UK’s first CQC registered online multidisciplinary lifestyle medicine service’, Plant Based Health Online (PBHO) uses an evidence-based approach to help patients transition to a more plant-based whole food diet. The service also offers advice to improve physical health, sleep quality and reduce stress.

The primary focus of PBHO will be on reducing the impact of health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cholesterol to improve the health of the nation.

Founder of Plant Based Health Professionals UK, Dr. Shireen Kassam told Plant Based News: “PBHO will be using plant-based nutrition as one of the tools to help patients regain their health. Because, we recognize that unhealthy diets are one of the top causes of ill health in the UK – and adopting a plant-based diet is one of the healthiest choices there is.”

“However, this service is not just for vegans. It’s a service for everyone who wants to improve their personal health, the health of their family members and of course the health of the planet.”

PBHO staff will meet patients wherever they may be on their journey to a healthier lifestyle”.

Consultations start at an introductory price of £165, including a 45-minute consultation and a 15 minute follow up.
