I know what you’re thinking.

Why would I bring Dr. Josh Axe on my show if his company is very similar to mine?

And in this podcast episode, Dr. Axe shares his approach to nutrition, which applies his background in Chinese Medicine, and how he helped his mom during two cancer diagnoses.

Dr. Axe — who has amassed close to 5.3 million followers on his Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and Pinterest channels combined — also discusses his thoughts on using keto, both short-term and long-term, and three types of ingredients that most people should eat daily but aren’t.
