WITH

Back on the show Dr. William Li, world-renowned physician, scientist, and New York Times bestselling author of Eat To Beat Your Disease: The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself and his newest book in which we discussed in our previous episode of the show, Eat To Beat Your Diet; Burn Fat, Heal Your Metabolism, and Live Longer. 

We will dive deeper into how we can use food as medicine, prevent disease, and starve off cancer. He reveals the science behind our natural defense systems, how we can use food to reduce inflammation, and activate our health defenses.

Dr. Li  is best known for his role as President and Medical Director of the Angiogenesis Foundation. His work has led to more than 40 FDA-approved therapeutics and devices for cancer, cardiovascular disease, wound healing, and vision loss. Dr. Li examines “food as medicine” through molecular nutrition, which applies biology and biotechnology to understand not only the components of food, but how the body responds to what it is fed.

This pioneering approach leads to a deeper understanding of the cellular mechanisms responsible for the health benefits of food, and generates the scientific, clinical, and population-based evidence paving a way toward disease prevention, better fitness, and faster recovery from illness.

Now let’s talk about this subject:

“What To Eat To BEAT DISEASE, HEAL Your Body, And REGAIN YOUR HEALTH”

Dr. William Li discusses the importance of gut health and its impact on inflammation. He explains that our gut microbiome plays a crucial role in our overall health, including immunity, mental wellness, and inflammation. Dr. Li emphasizes the need to feed our gut health by making healthy food choices. He recommends avoiding sugar-sweetened beverages, ultra-processed foods, and processed meats, as they can worsen inflammation. On the other hand, he suggests incorporating foods like coffee, nuts, and dried fruits, which have anti-inflammatory properties and support gut health. Dr. Li encourages individuals to define health as a vibrant and fulfilling life informed by good, healthy choices. In this conversation, Dr. William Li discusses the importance of nutrition and its role in disease prevention. He emphasizes the power of plant-based foods and the impact of gut health on overall health. Additionally, he explores the connection between food and mental health. Overall, the conversation highlights the significant role that food plays in our well-being and the potential for using nutrition as a tool for improving our health.

hello world!

I'm your host of Passion Love Pursuit Podcast. I'm on a journey, just like you. Sometimes we don't have it all figured out, we are just figuring it out along the way. At age 10, I was diagnosed with a learning disability and was told I wasn't as smart as the other kids. I allowed myself to be mistreated and disrespected in my relationships. I lacked a love for myself. Today that story has changed. I have rebuilt my foundation of self love and rewrote the stories I once told myself...but it took work to get here. Personal struggles have lead to growth, and have been the catalyst that sparked new beginnings. My journey has taught me valuable lessons I needed to learn and only once I became aware did I find the resources that developed my inner wisdom and strength. I don't have it all figured out. My journey still continues to evolve. I'm just a women looking to touch lives, inspire someone, and live my live passionately and purposefully.
