Our story

Since 2018, Doctors For Nutrition has been championing the role of plant-based nutrition as a powerful tool in disease prevention and care.

Established in 2018, our founding directors, Lucy Stegley and Dr Heleen Roex, came together and agreed that the Southern Hemisphere needed an independent voice to champion the role of nutrition in healthcare.

Powerful evidence shows that a whole food plant-based eating pattern can prevent, reverse, or significantly reduce the disability caused by a wide range of diseases. And yet what we eat has long been overlooked and dismissed in mainstream medical intervention.

The Doctors For Nutrition team is working to equip clinicians, institutions and the public in our region with evidence-based information and education on optimum human nutrition.

Our goal is to inspire the healthcare sector, policy makers and society at large to adopt whole food plant-based nutrition as a powerful tool in disease prevention and care.
