Today’s episode is a RELAUCNH of one of our favorite episodes of
Food, Success & Life for the Modern Woman. We welcome Dr.
William Davis to talk about why we’re seeing so many everyday
diseases and conditions, how grains have changed from what they
were only decades ago, how these are contributing to our health (or

Dr. Davis is author of the book Undoctored: Why Health

and chemo, and all the revenue producing activities they’re
generating. But we are now living in the information age, and we
can take our body’s health into our own hands.
“The enemy of healthcare is not sickness. The enemy of the
healthcare system are healthy people.”- Dr. William Davis

How do you Collaborate with your Doctor on this Program?
Tell them you don’t’ want to talk about medicine and drugs, tell
them you want to talk about nutrition. If your doctor tells you
they’re not interested, or that’s not how it works, walk out.
