"Once I got my doctorate I was able to reverse all these diseases I had. So I wanted to start a practice a little bit different than what anybody else was doing." (06:36)
"The next step I tell people, eat real foods, mostly plants and eat 'em in their whole form as close to their natural state as. I feel like the biggest thing for people is making swaps, healthy swaps. So it's not just depriving yourself of food." (10:29)
