Treat your food like preventative medicine. It is never too early or too late to give your body the nutrition it deserves!
As one of Canada's leaders in Lifestyle Medicine, a traditional Cardiologist and physician of Internal Medicine, Dr. Williams found his success through nutritional education which has lead to many of his patients preventing and in some cases reversing their chronic disease and being able to eliminate their many medications by adopting a healthier lifestyle.

Dr. Shane Williams has been a leading 21st century proponent in Canada of the benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition.
"Dr. Williams has recently expanded his treatment option to include an in residence facility which will powerfully enable patients to achieve important lifestyle changes. He is also developing an online program which will reach out to the rest of Canada defining how they may optimize their benefits.
It has been my privilege to know Dr. Williams as a friend and colleague and admire his growing commitment to enhance the well being of all Canadians."
Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr.
author: Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease
"I fully endorse the excellent advisories on lifestyle and health of Dr. Shane Williams and his colleagues - especially the message concerning the role of food in personal health. I have seldom met anyone with more professional enthusiasm for this message than Dr. Williams. It is time that the science of nutrition be fully embraced in medical and health practices."
Dr. T. Colin Campbell
author: The China Study
"Dr. Williams has been a frontrunner in adopting approaches to healthcare that actually promote health... by helping people change their food choices, he can help them radically improve their health."

DR. W. SHANE WILLIAMS
B.Sc (Pharmacy), MD, FRCP, Cardiology & Internal Medicine
Born and raised in Newfoundland, Dr. W. Shane Williams attended Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) in St. John’s where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy [BSc (Pharm)] being selected as class valedictorian in 1995. He then completed his 4 year Doctor of Medicine (MD) and 3 year post-graduate fellowship program in Internal Medicine at Memorial. He went on complete a 3 year Cardiology Subspecialty Fellowship at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario and in 2008 moved to Muskoka, Ontario to open his private practice in Cardiology and Internal Medicine.
In 2010, he stumbled across a copy of the book ‘The China Study’ written by Dr. T. Colin and Tom Campbell and was surprised with the amount of nutritional research that existed to support a whole foods plant-based diet -- to not only prevent but also stabilize, improve and sometimes even reverse many chronic conditions including elevated blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, coronary heart disease and diabetes.
He began to learn more about the science showing the power of nutrition on health. Since 2010, after changing his diet and enjoying many health benefits, he’s been incorporating nutritional education and training into the care of his clinic patients.
Over the years, he’s had the tremendous good fortune to meet, spend time with and learn from a number of world leaders in plant-based nutrition including Drs. T. Colin Campbell and Thomas Campbell, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and Dr. John McDougall.
He’s lectured at plant-based conferences, hosted many week long immersion programs locally as well as a 10 day ‘Plant-based Immersion Summit’ in the Caribbean with Drs. Campbell and Esselstyn along with other leaders in the field. He considers himself very lucky to have witnessed (and continues to witness) so many of his patients often completely turn their health around once they learn and implement the scientifically proven, optimal nutritional approach for humans – a whole foods, plant-based diet.
He’s passionate about bringing this information to as many people as possible so they too can become empowered to both safeguard and improve their health.
