Keep It Coming!
I am loving The Food as Medicine Podcast. Host, Dr. Anh jam packs every episode with tons of awesome content, interviews, and guest, covering all things health and wellness. I highly recommend! Keep it coming!
Podcast sound quality
I find the content Interesting, however, the sound quality is terrible there’s background noise she sounds really loud when she says in her and then there’s music playing somewhere and it’s very distracting and it goes from loud too soft. I would love to continue listening but I think there needs to be better sound quality
Learning so much about health!
Dr. Anh’s podcast has an abundance of useful information and her guests make it easy to understand. I just started listening and I’m hooked. I’m recommending this podcast to all my family & friends who like to get healthy through food, natural supplements and lifestyle changes.
