New York Times best-selling author, clinician, Functional Medicine educator, and pioneer in the natural health space, Chris Kresser, discusses how his health views have evolved over 15 years and what he’s currently focused on.
When you tune into this episode, you’ll hear about how Chris discovered that many of his healthy patients who did everything right health-wise still ended up with nutrient deficiencies, what that looks like, and what the most nutrient dense foods are, both plant and meat-based.
Chris also discusses whether we should be eating plant foods, the pleiotropic interventions he recommends, eating locally versus seasonally, and how soil health has drastically changed over the years and what that means for us today.
Chris and Dr. Anthony Gustin also discuss his own personal experience dealing with health issues, how to tell if you’ve reached the point that health interventions can longer help, and why he chooses to see patients in-person when it can be done virtually.
