A Shining World Hero Award recipient, Dr. Baxter D. Montgomery is a board-certified cardiologist from the United States and Founder and Director of the Montgomery Heart & Wellness Center. This state-of-the-art medical facility located in Houston, Texas is a revelation for health care. It provides comprehensive health and wellness interventions that help people suffering from various conditions including heart disease, diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure. And part of the treatment involves a minimally processed, whole food, plant-based diet.

Dr. Montgomery decided that he wanted to pursue a medical career when he was only 14 years old. During his many years of study and residency, Dr. Montgomery found different facets of the heart quite fascinating. Being motivated by his own health concerns was also a catalyst for Dr. Montgomery to learn more about alternative healing methods. “But there was one particular event or action, I should say, that led me strictly down the path of using plant-based nutrition, was when I took a weekend crash course to get a raw vegan chef certification.”

“And without fail, when I tried them on raw detox diets, smoothies, juices, salads, their health conditions turned around in very short order. It was almost like magic. Now, again, as I said, I had trained in the world's largest medical center, at that time, for nearly a decade and a half. I had access to the best technology there was. But despite that, just applying natural foods to individuals who had advanced health diseases, who are on lots of medication, who had already had advanced surgical procedures like bypass and various other surgical procedures, despite all of that, these patients’ health conditions turned around in a way I had not seen before.”

“We now have a nutrition center, (vegan) restaurant, and (vegan) grocery store in our center. We have online coaching programs and a nutrition clinic, integrated care clinic. We integrate optimal nutrition as well as superfood supplements, and we do other modalities such as infrared sauna therapy and the like.”
