Daily Dose of Natural Medicine: Miki Purnell presented by the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii

A ‘Daily Dose of Natural Medicine’ is Dr. Miki Purnell’s recommendation for people who wish to prevent chronic illness, including chronic pain. It consists of a plant-based, anti-inflammatory diet, activity recommendation, and mindfulness practice. It is a simple DIY mind-body-spirit care. “Healthy eating” is very personal, and not all the foods are the same due to food alteration processes. Dr. Purnell would like to engage, empower, and encourage participants to do this simple practice for their health! 

Miki Purnell, MD, is a physician, a speaker, and a jazz singer. She is boardcertified with the American Board of Family Medicine and the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine. She graduated from Okayana University Medical School, Japan, and completed the University Of Hawaii Family Practice Residency Program. As she worked in primary care settings, she became interested in integrative medicine and became certified with ABIHM (American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine). She believes that a healthy diet is the foundation of our health and especially that a plant-based diet helps to prevent many chronic diseases. She provides reliable information and ideas to live a healthy life while enjoying delicious natural food.
