Making the complex simple...

Absolutely love how Scott hits on the foundational healthy lifestyle practices that move the needle for complex chronic issues... And continues repeating these principles with his guests because they're darn THAT IMPORTANT. We all need to hear it over and over and over so "living a healthy lifestyle" becomes who we are, and not just what we do.
