Dr. Scott Stoll, MD, has a unique perspective when it comes to the medical profession. He views doctors as salespeople. Most can sell you on a prescription or procedure in under ten minutes. He’s selling his patients on prevention. Dr. Stoll advocates for a whole food, plant-based diet to both prevent and reverse common ailments that dramatically affect his patients’ quality of life. Optimum health isn’t a gamble—for the large part, it’s determined by what you put into your body. As he says, “You have to fight with every bite. Every bite matters.” This conversation dives into a number of topics from his plant-based origin story to working with Team USA bobsled athletes, transformative patient stories to hopeful progress being made in medical education. Dr. Stoll is a wealth of resources, and we were honored to spend over an hour chatting with him.
