Functional Medicine Weekly Deep Dive

In a country (the US) that is largely medicated, stressed and unhealthy, something has to give. This podcast approaches all of the modern day society’s ills. It has lead to my own wellness journey and being able to discuss different topics with my family and friends after listening to a new episode.

Yes, MBG is a company, but like all of the free podcasts they advertise as their own sponsor as of late and specific MBG products may be mentioned in a podcast. I have found a majority of the information helpful.

Jason’s delivery of interviews is well thought out, passionate and informative. You can tell he cares a lot about the guests and the topics being discussed.

Thank you for the most recent COVID episode

Thank you so much for giving Dr. Katz a platform. I’ve listened to him speak to COVID on other podcasts, but not recently. He’s one of the few I d heard with a respectful AND refreshingly pragmatic response to this. I’m a youngish, healthy person who lost two jobs overnight—jobs in two separate industries which are essentially nonexistent right now. I financially help my aging parents. I’m able to collect unemployment, but they’re getting only $151 a week. I’m worried about how I will be able to care for them if this continues on. I respect the virus; I respect it’s severity; I respect the sick and the dying and dead; AND YET I should be able to get back to work (I do not live with my parents or any vulnerable). I can’t see any way out of this if the younger and healthy cannot soon get back to work. So all that to say thank you so much for the “reality check,” the middle-road (not extreme one way or the other), pragmatic, respectful approach. Thank you thank you thank you.
