Have you ever considered that the ailments, health problems, and weight gain you are experiencing could all be a result of your diet? I know, you eat a fairly healthy diet but you may still eat foods that trigger menstrual cramps, polycystic ovaries, diabetes, thyroid issues, and a plethora of other health problems.  Men are not immune either.  Foods they may eat can increase their risk for diabetes, erectile dysfunction, and prostate issues.  Dr. Neal Barnard, author of Your Body in Balance shows us how our hormones are affecting our health in ways we never imagined.

My friend, Meiping Liu from Lotus Health Foundation in Rochester, MN asked me to moderate a Q&A with the esteemed doctor, author, clinical researcher, and founding president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.  The goal was to talk about his most recent book, Your Body in Balance which I had recently finished reading.

I’ve heard Dr. Barnard speak at several conferences and had the pleasure to meet him in person last year. I’ll admit I was a bit star-struck. In the whole food, plant-based world he is a rockstar!

What sets Dr. Barnard apart is the body of research he has compiled throughout his career. As the curator of Living Healthy List, it is essential that we share science-based information by experts you can trust.
