Dr. Matt Brown is Nutri Doc’s primary educator and spokesperson with a track record of success in medical practice spanning over 20 years. He is passionate about empowering individuals to take control of their own health through a thorough understanding of powerful nutrition and through the use of whole food based products.
Dr. Matt Brown’s focus on nutrition and prevention developed many years after his career in medicine began. Despite his extensive background in traditional medicine, as is the case with so many doctors, he lacked a clear understanding of the role that nutrition could play in preventing the very diseases that ravaged his patients.
In 2006, his nutritional paradigm began to shift toward plant based, whole food nutrition as the cornerstone of health. While attending the 2006 American College of Sports Medicine conference in Denver, Colorado, one particular study caught his attention-one involving the use of fruit and vegetable juice powders to reduce oxidative stress in athletes (Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, June 2006, Bloomer et al). He wondered if perhaps fruits and vegetables could be the answer to his own health issues as a competitive recreational
Through a combination of trial and error in his own diet, including a painful foray into huge amounts of V-8 juice and further exposure to information on powerful nutrition, Dr. Brown had an epiphany. He realized that the phyto-nutrients in fruits and vegetables were powerful enough to switch on good genes and turn off bad ones and in so doing, influence every aspect of health and/or disease!
After exhaustive research and course work in nutrition, Dr. Brown is firmly convinced that powerful nutrition can prevent, cure, and/or ameliorate just about any disease. Plant based nutrition is the key to health and longevity and the central focus of Dr. Matt Brown’s teaching.
