242: Meet Penny (Dr. Gundry’s wife!)

by | Feb 14, 2023 | 0 comments


Being a doctor for nearly half a century helping people like YOU transform their health has been one of my life’s greatest blessings. That said, none of it would have been possible without the support of my amazing wife, Penny Gundry. 

You may have heard me mention her throughout this podcast, including how she’s an amazing athlete. While that’s true, there is SO much more to the wonderful person I call my soulmate. 

So in honor of Valentine’s Day, I’ve brought back my episode featuring my favorite guest!

In this episode, you’ll get to hear how fate brought Penny and I together in the first place, and how our marriage has survived serious issues like pending bankruptcy and blended family hurdles. 

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • How a famous sportscaster reconnected Penny and I (and why it was love at first sight) (1:15)  
  • Why you should always listen to your heart – and when I recommend calling it quits on a relationship (15:14) 
  • Why I almost went back to being a surgeon (and Penny’s “crazy” idea that changed everything) (18:10) 
  • Why I believe that “life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you” – and how we stayed optimistic through hard times (30:20) 
  • The “janitor’s secret” to a happy, content life (33:00)
  • Why women have higher incidences of Alzheimer’s – and how to help reduce a diagnosis by 90% (37:45) 
  • The SHOCKING health effects of retiring (41:10) 
  • The ONE thing Penny wants you to know about me (43:00)
