How To Figure Out Your Nutrition In The Modern World W/ Dr. David Friedman
Today we are joined by Dr. David Friedman. Dr. Friedman is a #1 bestselling author, a Doctor of Naturopathy, a Clinical Nutritionist and a Chiropractic Neurologist – in other words, he has a lot of degrees and certifications. He is actually a Board Certified Alternative Medical Practitioner, Board Certified in Integrative Medicine, and a registered Naturopathic Diplomate.
Dr. Friedman received a post-doctorate certification from Harvard Medical School, and is a former teacher of neurology – he has even authored a college textbook. He is an expert in all things body, nutrition, and nervous system, and you've probably seen him writing in U.S News & World Report, Newsweek, Readers Digest, Healthy Living, AARP Magazine, and Woman’s Day.
He’s also been a guest on over a hundred syndicated radio and television shows. Friedman’s list of clients has included many top celebrities like John Travolta, Jenny McCarthy, Jamie Lee Curtis, Val Kilmer, and Paul Newman. On top of all that, he hosts his own radio show.
So, what did we talk about in this episode? Well, most of the time we talked about the most important thing in health, which is nutrition. But we also learned a lot about chiropractic, both as a philosophy and as a practice.
I learned a ton in this episode about different ways to identify healthy foods, about different things that go on in the body when you eat certain foods, and also some really interesting health hacks that I'd never been exposed to.
This episode is full of insights that we haven't heard in the show before, so I think you are really going to enjoy this – Dr. Friedman is just full of energy and has a really great personality.
