In this episode, I sat down with Dr. Chris Dan and Dr. Gary Shlifer to talk about the shortcomings of the medical system and current public health guidelines. Both of them have experienced frustration with the modern medical system, especially as it relates to the pandemic and the prevention of chronic disease.
We discuss the chaotic and confusing public health guidelines over the past 2 years as well as the importance of metabolic health on our immune health. Dr. Chris Dan exposes some of the biggest problems with the healthcare system and explains why he left the hospital.
