About the Author
Pamela McDonald, NP
Pamela is a leading integrative medicine nurse practitioner, who has devoted her life to the prevention of heart disease and chronic illness by utilizing the body’s own genetic recipe and promoting the use of natural organic whole food.
Pamela was born in Paisley, Scotland, and grew up in the southernmost part of England. She was originally trained at the Royal Hospital of St. Bartholomew’s in London, and then moved to California in 1981.
A nurse practitioner with advanced specialty training in surgery, women’s health care, adult primary care, pediatrics, pediatric obesity, family practice, cardiovascular and heart disease prevention, nutrition, exercise, mind/body medicine, and botanical medicine, Pamela is also educated in allopathic, alternative, and integrative medicine. She is a graduate of the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, founded by Andrew Weil, MD.
Pamela lives just outside San Francisco, CA, with her husband, Rick, and their three children. She maintains a private practice as well as evolving and overseeing her Apo E Gene Diet program. Pamela often lectures to public and private groups.
The Perfect Gene Diet is not a traditional diet book. Today, we know the Apo E gene affects cholesterol, Alzheimer’s disease, heart and vascular disease, obesity, and other chronic illnesses. We know that each genotype requires its particular balance of carbohydrate, fat, and protein for optimal health. This breakthrough book describes the latest information so you can make appropriate lifestyle decisions based on your genotype. Here is what Pamela McDonald’s colleagues and patients are saying:
Pam McDonald has developed a comprehensive cardiovascular disease management program that is unmatched anywhere in the world. She combines cutting-edge technology with compassionate, individualized care to help patients achieve optimal health, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Having very high cholesterol and very high blood pressure, I was overweight, depressed, and dependent on medication. After I started The Apo E Gene Diet, in a very short time my cholesterol was reduced to 178, my blood pressure is the best it’s been in years, and the best part is I am off high-dose medication. Pamela McDonald’s work is an eye-opener.
