Today, I’m also going to be your personal “Physician’s Assistant” right alongside the amazing Dr. Alan Desmond, Gastroenterologist and author of the new book, “The Plant-Based Diet Revolution.” My parents have been raving about him so much and, today, you’ll see why. His knowledge and expertise of gut health and the microbiome is SO vast that we’re actually breaking our conversation into a two-part series because we want you to (pun intended) digest everything he says.
From the get-go, Dr. Desmond lays out some sobering statistics for gut health in the US…1 in 3 adults under the age of 50 have diverticular disease, colorectal cancer will affect more than 1 in 20 adults in their lifetimes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is off the charts…
If all health begins in the gut, then the US needs a major overhaul and that’s what we’re here to do over the next two weeks.
In part one today, we whip out the prescription pad and give you real Doctor’s orders…The Top 10 Prescriptions for Better Health. But, unlike most prescriptions that simply treat the problem, these prescriptions will get to the root and help you solve these problems.
The best part? They don’t involve taking more pills…just beautiful, nutritious, whole plant-based foods, the optimal diet for health and longevity. Ok, my friends. The Doctor is in and it’s your turn to spend some quality time with Dr. Alan Desmond.
