Throughout my training and practice as a physician I have come to one very disappointing conclusion: Western medicine isn’t helping people lead better lives. Now that I’ve realized this, I’ve become obsessed with understanding what makes us healthy or ill. I want to live the best life I can and I want to be able to share this knowledge with others so that they can do the same. This podcast is the result of my relentless search to understand the roots of chronic disease. If you want to know how to live the most radical life possible I hope you’ll join me on this journey.

    Former celebrity vegans now thriving on a carnivore diet! The amazing stories of Alyse Parker and Tim Shieff!

    Former celebrity vegans now thriving on a carnivore diet! The amazing stories of Alyse Parker and Tim Shieff!

    These two are truly amazing individuals! 
    Alyse is a former raw vegan who gathered a following of over 1 million people on YouTube and Instagram by sharing her message of positivity and self love. She received significant criticism from the vegan community earlier this year when she announced that she had begun eating meat and felt much better because of it! She is now thriving on a carnivore-ish diet and was recently featured on Good Morning America telling her story.
    Tim is a world champion parkour (free running) athlete who experienced significant decline in his health after eating a vegan diet for 6 years, and has similarly found much better health since including meat in his diet. He was filmed for the Game Changers movie but asked to be taken out after his health suffered. Can we please get James Wilks to comment on that???
