In light of the current pandemic, so much of the current narrative is focused on fear, increasing case counts and the ambiguous calls to flatten the curve by means of lockdown, social distancing and universal mask wearing. In this episode, we break down the importance of metabolic health in the context of the pandemic and do a deep dive on fact vs. fear with guest Dr. Paul Saladino. We also discuss considerations of an all meat diet and his newly revised book, The Carnivore Code.
In this episode, we interview Dr. Saladino on his perspective on why we need to flatten the fear and use this pandemic as an opportunity to correct the underlying metabolic issues that make us vulnerable to the virus. This isn’t the first, nor will it be the last, viral threat to humans and looking to deepen our understanding of how the immune system functions, how nutrients like Vitamin D and glutathione can support whole body health, and how insulin resistance is the real pandemic is being dangerously overlooked. Tune in to hear us discuss herd immunity, shortcomings of a vaccine and how we can tap into nature to create resilience. Plus hear all about Dr. Paul’s book, The Carnivore Code, where he debunks common misconceptions of a meat-based diet and shares his perspective on why plants might not be supportive of whole body health.
