On Eating Animals


While the core of the VMR program centers around a diet that is rich in animal foods as a tool for healing the mind and body, we’ve recently added vegetarian recipes for those with personal or ethical concerns, which Dr. Brogan discusses more here.

It’s worth noting that Dr. Brogan does not have clinical data from her medical practice or VMR program suggesting that a fully vegetarian diet will result in the same outcomes discussed here. We believe this diet will be more for those who are looking to optimize health, rather than those who are dealing with acute issues.

Our meal plans are not entirely vegan-friendly.

The success that we know is possible through this program and discuss on this page is based on the original diet consisting of animal foods. Therefore, we do not endorse the vegetarian diet we include for radical healing or for anyone with the intention of a medication taper. However, we do think it’s still possible to benefit from this program in some way while following the other elements of the program.

Please also note that the program content will still reference the benefits of an animal foods diet.
