Very top notch!
I listen to this show everyday when I workout. The guests are the highest qualified in the field of functional medicine. I am implementing things in my life as a diabetic. It seems like the common ground among the experts here is that they couldn't not get help by conventional western medicine so they looked elsewhere and got amazing results. Being a school counselor, I also appreciate the mental health episodes too and learn a lot from them. Mahalo (Thank you in Hawaiian)
