Make your vegan diet your best medicine

Dr Martyn Williamson

Dr Martyn Williamson moved to New Zealand from the UK in 1986. He has spent the last 35 years in rural general practice, mixing this with a teaching and research role at Dunedin School of Medicine.

He has always been passionate about helping people thrive, and over the last five years has turned his focus to helping people prevent, reverse and cure their chronic illnesses. He and his wife Liz were nominated plant-based practitioners of the year for 2019 and in 2020 they both obtained an international certification in Lifestyle Medicine.

Martyn is committed to raising awareness about the power of whole food plant-based nutrition to treat disease, so people have a choice to regain some control over their health.
