Today marks a monumental episode— our 300th! We’re celebrating this special occasion with guests who are just like you and me, people who have followed the protocols outlined in my NYT bestseller “The Plant Paradox™” (and all the subsequent books) and discussed right here on the podcast.

Prepare to be inspired by the remarkable health transformations of Chellie Beck from Tennessee, Hector Gavilla and Cassidy Gerken from New York, and Cassandra Segoviano from Texas.

We are also thrilled to have Christine O’Donnell, the original producer who helped launch The Dr. Gundry Podcast in 2018 and now founder of Bright Sighted, a podcast production company. As a former news reporter, Christine moderates the discussion, bringing her unique insights to the conversation.
