BH018: Go Against the ‘Grain’ of Prescription-Driven Health Care by Adopting Prevention with Dr. William Davis
Manage episode 195608293 series 1931134
Cardiologist Dr. William Davis wants us to take charge of our own health, and make prevention our top priority. But he warns that you won't get any help from you regular doctor. In his book, Undoctored, Dr Davis explains how the medical system has failed us, and how prevention has disappeared from most doctor's priorities. The first step we can all take toward promoting health is eliminating wheat from our diets. As explained in his book Wheat Belly, wheat comes from grass that we humans were never meant to digest. During the conversation, Dr Davis and I discuss the unnatural rise of grains in our diet though farming and agribusiness, the profit-driven and process-laden conventional health care system, and how we can alter our healthcare expectations and take charge of our health. After listening you will be inspired to take charge of your own health!
