Serious life-altering illnesses are often thought of as things that simply happen to us — that we have no real control over them.

But my guest today, Sayer Ji, says the opposite is true – and what he’s about to share is FASCINATING.

Sayer is the founder of the health database (which I subscribe to), GreenMedInfo, and the author of Regenerate: Unlocking Your Body’s Radical Resilience Through New Biology. 

He says that eating right, exercising, and relief can have a much greater impact on your health than your actual DNA. 

In fact, Sayer was able to transform himself from what he called “an overweight, inactive, asmatic with a bum hip” into a marathon-running natural health advocate who hasn’t used medication in decades

And on today’s episode, Sayer and I explain what’s REALLY increasing your likelihood of  developing chronic illness (and why it’s NOT always genetics), reveal some of the deadliest toxins on the planet (and they could be in MANY of the foods you eat), and share the BEST foods to eat to protect your health.

On this episode you’ll learn: 

  • The TRUTH about DNA – and what it really means for your health (7:00) 
  • The “super computers” in charge of your health – and the trick to ACTIVATING them (10:00)
  • 2 foods proven to cause chronic illness (WARNING: they may be in your kitchen right now) (13:00)
  • The 2 primary drivers of chronic disease – and the steps YOU can take to avoid them (13:15)
  • The “stealth lectin” you NEED to know about (plus, where it’s hiding and how to steer clear of it) (14:00)
  • What elephants can teach YOU about developing – and avoiding – heart disease (19:00) 
  • What new research says about your body’s REAL power source (no, it’s NOT your heart) (22:00)
  • Why your painkiller might actually be harming YOU – and natural alternatives to ask your doctor about (29:00)
  • The deadly toxin that could be hiding in your water glass — and the foods you can eat to protect yourself (30:00) 
  • Why this “old-fashioned” remedy for the common cold PROVES your grandparents were right (34:00)
  • Why nearly 90% of people feel better after quitting THESE 2 foods (and how you can, too) (42:00)
  • What your GUT has to do with eye health and glaucoma – and how to naturally support your gut (47:00)
