Hello and welcome!
Thanks for stopping by and joining us in our pursuit to seek health consciously.
We are Venny and Andy Dove and we believe that diet is the foundation of great health and whole plant foods are the way to get there.
Personally, we have experienced first hand the benefits of eating exclusively plant food. Andy stopped his allergy medication, lost 40 lbs of weight and Venny’s autoimmune Hashimoto hypothyroidism is slowly improving.
Venny’s experience while working as a medical doctor showed us that true health truly cannot come from medical procedures and drugs but healthful living.
That’s why it has become our vocation to help you know what to eat and how to practically achieve it.
Venny is a medical doctor and a certified clinical homeopathy practitioner who believes that prevention is the best medicine and has devoted herself into uncovering the secrets of proper nutrition. She also has some training in psychiatry and can give you insights about living healthfully without allowing others to lead you astray.
Andy is a health nutjob who never drank alcohol, smoked a cigarette or, God forbid, put oil or salt on his salad since he was 10 years old. He also did a Master’s degree in Innovation though and he wants to help you innovate your health.
We are human, before all.
We feel we should be feeding our bodies the food nature designed us to.
And us, humans, are designed by nature to eat a plant-based diet, free from processed foods.
Health is probable what’s dearest to all people yet today we live in a world where being healthy seems like an impossibility for most people.
Chronic diseases and obesity are rampant and people seem to have accepted that being ill and overweight is actually normal.
Yet, it does not need to be so.
We created WellnessDove for one reason only:

by providing you with constant information about how plant foods keep you healthy so that you know that it is worth it to keep on going
practical tips and psychological insight about how to understand ourselves better and mitigate the challenges that society puts in front of us.
Nutrition is key
We are what we eat.
It’s a cliché, we know, but it is the simple truth that everybody seems to agree on.
It is like an instinct.
Everybody knows it and that is why there are more books on diet than any other topic.
The food we eat determines our health more than anything else.
We have experienced first hand how proper nutrition can reverse chronic diseases and remove excess weight.
We have studied in great detail how and why it happens.
It is medicine.
If you come to think about pills, we swallow them like a food, they go through the digestive tract like a food, they are absorbed like a food…
They even have side effects like many “real” foods such as milk and dairy.
Why then we stop taking artificial “food” and stay on the safe side.
Simply eat our vegetables, as we were thought as kids.
People are confused, we know.
It’s not as simple anymore.
There are so many diets today that even vegetables have become bad for us, if you ask some “experts”.
They are not, though.
Whole plant foods are what makes humans strong, healthy and vibrant.
We dug deep on why is that.
Dig into the pages of this blog and see for yourself.
The key is to stay on track
We know that eating right is so different to the standard western diet that it is difficult to stay motivated.
Social pressure can easily put you off the healthy path and it is hard not to let it often times.
On top of that, unhealthy foods prey on you at every corner while no healthy options are in sight.
Knowing what you should eat is one thing. Implementing that knowledge is the challenge.
We’ve been there.
We also have the education in psychology, change management and innovation to guide you into staying healthy.
We hope that we will become a (large) part of the puzzle that is your health.
Anyway, seek health consciously, always!
Andy & Venny
