Dr. Joel Kahn - The Doctor That Wants You to Go Vegan

Updated: Oct 3, 2023

Dr. Joel Kahn - Peak Human Podcast


Listen on


Dr. Joel Kahn is a cardiologist, integrative medicine practitioner and promoter of plant-based nutrition. Having practiced traditional cardiology since 1983, it was only after his own commitment to a plant based vegan diet that he truly began to delve into the realm of non-traditional diagnostic tools, prevention tactics and nutrition-based recovery protocols. These ideologies led him to change his approach and focus on being a holistic cardiologist.
