Love.Life Now Offers Plant-Based Telemedicine Visits

Up-and-coming integrative health and wellness company Love.Life recently acquired the inclusive medical platform Plant Based TeleHealth and has rebranded the medical venture as Love.Life Telehealth. Through secure video conferencing, Love.Life Telehealth now provides virtual medical care for patients who are interested in optimizing their health and wellness. The virtual capability adds to the company’s robust health and wellness offerings through video visits for those interested in bettering their health, along with those who have chronic diseases.

Conditions of focus include, but are not limited to, diabetes, hypertension, elevated cholesterol, heart disease, obesity, autoimmune diseases, inflammation, and digestive concerns. Love.Life Telehealth physicians utilize evidence-based lifestyle medicine practices to promote healthy behaviors and lifestyle modifications, like dietary changes, through the adoption of a whole food plant-based diet.

“Love.Life is about making lasting health and vitality achievable, and acquiring Plant Based TeleHealth accelerates our ability to help more people without geographic limitations,” said John Mackey, Love.Life’s CEO and co-founder. “Appointments are available now, and we’re excited to offer telehealth services as part of the comprehensive medical offerings available in our physical locations, which will begin opening in 2024.”

Love.Life Specializes in Lifestyle Medicine

Love.Life was co-founded in 2020 by John Mackey (co-founder and former CEO of Whole Foods Market), Walter Robb (former co-CEO of Whole Foods), and Betsy Foster (former Whole Foods executive). Love.Life is an integrative wellness company that specializes in health promotion through lifestyle medicine. With the inheritance of Plant Based TeleHealth, the Love.Life reach has drastically expanded through Love.Life Telehealth. As part of the acquisition, co-founder and former CEO of Plant Based TeleHealth, Anthony Masiello, has also joined the Love.Life leadership team.

“Whether you’re someone seeking overall wellness, preventative care, or a better path for treating existing conditions, our physicians make achieving personal health goals attainable by looking at the total health of an individual, addressing the root cause of disease, and creating an environment where the body can heal,” said Masiello.

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
