141: Dr Alejandro Junger – From 7 prescriptions per day to the “clean 7”
The statistics are shocking: We are emitting more than 250 billion tons of chemical substances every year — yes, you read that right, 250 BILLION TONS.
Even scarier, it’s estimated that 12 million people — that’s 1 in 4 — die every year from health issues caused by air, water, and soil pollution; chemical exposure; and climate change.
But my guest says that through the power of detoxification – and more importantly, FOOD – we can support our body’s natural ability to fend off illness and recover from troublesome health problems.
Joining me for this episode is a good friend of mine, Dr. Alejandro Junger. Years ago, we met when he was a young cardiologist at Desert Medical in Palm Springs and we developed a friendship, and even did relief work in India together.
Dr. Junger is also founder of the Clean program, and a three-time New York Times bestselling author, including his latest book CLEAN 7.
And on this episode, we’re going to explain how YOU can harness some of the most powerful healing tools in the world to shed your own chronic symptoms and illnesses for good.
