2 Minutes Read

An incredible line-up of top plant-based doctors will be featured in a documentary about medicine and diet.

Some of the big medical names taking part in the film are Dr. Michael Greger, Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. David Katz, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. Elizabeth Frates, Dr. Edward Phillips, Dr. David Sabgir, and Dr. Jennifer Trilk.

New movie Code Blue is a feature length documentary that ‘reveals insufficiencies in the current state of medicine and provides a common sense solution by featuring the practice of lifestyle medicine to prevent, manage, and reverse chronic illness’.


According to the filmmakers: “Code blue follows the story of a passionate physician, Dr. Saray Stancic; medical students, Saul Bautista and Uma Raman; and experts/physicians/scientists who have the foresight to envision the potential of incorporating lifestyle medicine into clinical practice. 

“Interwoven between these stories are successful individuals and organizations, as well as the personal narratives of chronically ill patients who learn to embrace this revolutionary method of medical treatment.”

Lifestyle medicine

The concept of lifestyle medicine is generally understood to mean the combination of a whole foods plant-based diet with stress management and exercise.

The filmmakers say: “This is an important film that explores the question of how to redefine the current practice of medicine in order to empower both physicians and patients to take control of their personal health outcomes by prioritizing prevention.

“This story serves as an inspiration to all, in the hope that we can energize the global community to act together to turn the tide of the chronic illness and obesity epidemic that is regrettably compromising the lives of our communities and our loved ones.”

Information about the release date is yet to be announced.
