How To Use Food To Prevent & Beat Disease


It’s no secret that the food we eat has massive repercussions on how our bodies perform, but the research is starting to show it has an even bigger impact than we might have ever realized. The way our brains function, the diseases we’re able to overcome, our ability to live longer, being able to avoid inflammation, and more are all drastically affected by our diets and nutrition.

So what can we do to make sure we’re on the right track? What are the types of foods we should be consuming on a regular basis and the ones we should be avoiding at all costs? My guest today is Dr. William Li and he’s spent his career answering these very questions. 

I’m so pumped to have him back in the studio. Today, he’s going to teach us all about the gut microbiome, harmful foods that cause disease, and so much more. And now, help me welcome back the one-and-only, Dr. William Li, to The School of Greatness!
