He shares his own experience with overcoming metabolic syndrome and how he learned to heal himself with nutrition and intermittent fasting. Looking at plant based products and the vegan movement as a way to help the planet, we flip the coin and discuss toxic chemicals found in many plant-based meat products that are problematic from a GI perspective as well as GMOs, inflammation, the gut microbiome and dietary changes that accompany aging. Dr. Pran also shares his professional experience in the importance of balanced blood sugars and insulin in the treatment of endometriosis.
