We are approaching a significant tipping point for human and planetary health.
Despite the breakneck pace of innovation and technology striving to solve these problems, I can’t help but feel the solutions we need continue to elude us.
Today’s guest believes there is a better path forward—one that calls for spiritual evolution, and a profound reconnection with the natural world.
Meet Zach Bush, MD, one of the more fascinating medical minds currently working to improve our understanding of whole-body and whole-planet health.
Zach is a triple board-certified physician, an internationally recognized thought leader, and a renowned educator on the microbiome as it relates to health, disease, and food systems.
The focus of his advocacy centers on soil and food systems, the need for a radical departure from factory farming, and the many deleterious impacts of chemical-intensive agriculture practices coupled with healthy solutions for consumers, farmers, and mega-industries.
“I believe that humanity’s original wound is that we saw ourselves as separate from nature.”
– ZACH BUSH, MD
Today’s exchange traverses many important topics including the link between human biology and planetary biology, how the quality of our soil affects our microbiome, actionable ways to regenerate the Earth, how we can work together for a healthy future for people, animals, and the planet, along with many other fascinating topics.
I’m grateful to Zach for his wisdom. And I’m proud to share it with you today.
Peace + Plants,
