Do you ever have a sudden fear of not having enough time left in your life?
In this episode of the Align podcast, Dr. Zach Bush and I chat about the divergence of humans from nature, the function of this split, as well as the effects of this split in our society now. We also talk about the relationship between art, and “play” with medicine. We touch the process of healing our past traumas as well as the core idea of intrinsic health. Lastly, we talk about the idea of looking past the obsolete idea of aging and how it can positively impact our body.
Zach Bush, MD is a physician specializing in internal medicine, endocrinology and hospice care. He is the co-founder and CEO of Seraphic Group and the non-profit Farmer's Footprint to develop root-cause solutions for human and ecological health. His education has highlighted the need for a radical departure from chemical farming and pharmacy, and his ongoing efforts are providing a path for consumers, farmers, and mega-industries to work together for a healthy future for people and planet.
