Today our guest is a visionary in health Dr. Alan Goldhamer
Dr. Goldhamer offers straight talk about the mentality associated with food and food addictions. The
American lifestyle and diet choices are far from the epitome of health. The average American’s diet has completely conformed to the acceptance of processed foods and artificial ingredients. So much so, that our bodies actually crave the toxic waste that it’s become so inclined to ingest. There’s a lack of vital nutrients in our diets to sustain human physical, emotional or mental health. To the extreme, that a detoxification is the single most suitable solution to reset the body’s metabolism and it’s ability to recognize and digest nutrient-dense food again.
