When’s the last time your doctor prescribed you a bowl of leafy greens or a handful of mushrooms? 

Unless you’re my patient, probably never!

And it’s unfortunate – because FOOD is one of the most powerful tools we have for optimizing our health. 

And my guest couldn’t agree more.  

I welcome back Dr. William Li, physician, scientist, and author of Eat To Beat Disease: The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself.  

Dr. Li and I reveal what most doctors MISS when it comes to health and longevity, the shocking science behind nutrition and disease, and the health-transforming foods everyone should be consuming on a daily basis. 

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • The shocking way our gut health affects our brain (and how you can sharpen your mind) (9:57)

  • How focusing on THIS color of foods can support your “health defense systems”(18:60)
  • Why ancient civilizations have been eating these “rotten” foods for years (and how they contribute to your gut’s ecosystem) (21:20) 
  • Why women that drink 2 glasses of champagne a day have GREAT vascular health (27:55)
