40: “Cured” of Crohn’s Disease? How diet makes a difference

by | May 20, 2019 | 3 comments

Does the idea of radically changing your diet feel scary, intimidating, or even… unrealistic?

If you answered yes, you’ll want to keep listening.

On this episode of the Dr. Gundry Podcast, I speak with the married couple and real-life Plant Paradox success story, Dave and Jann Hales.

After suffering from autoimmune diseases for years (Dave has Crohn’s Disease and Jann has rheumatoid arthritis) the couple has found complete relief from their symptoms — documenting their experiences on their YouTube channel, AZ Life Cooking.

On it, they share healthy recipes and product reviews, while offering support and advice to other people following The Plant Paradox.

Today, they’ll open up about the health struggles that led them to a lectin-free lifestyle, and how it has completely transformed their lives.

They’ll also share some of their favorite recipes, and offer some “insider” tips to help YOU find success on the diet.
