Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dr. Jeff Bland to discuss the importance of immune resilience and the many different factors that impact it. They talk about the gut-brain connection and how dysbiosis and leaky gut drive diseases of inflammaging. They also discuss how we can slow, and in many cases reverse, the aging process through the use of powerful superfoods, hormetic stressors, and diet and lifestyle tools.
Jeffrey Bland, PhD, is the founder of Big Bold Health, a company that’s on a mission to transform the way people think about the immune system. At Big Bold Health, Dr. Bland advocates for the power of immunorejuvenation to enhance immunity through the rediscovery of ancient food crops and superfoods.
