Dr. Bock is the author of several successful books on healing and chronic diseases as well as founder of Bock Integrative. I learned a tremendous amount from this episode filled with advice and hope for better health and happiness. Not only is he a wealth of knowledge, he’s kind, charismatic and has an amazing bedside manner – a gentle voice combined with skill and wisdom. AND we have a little fun, too, talking about my role-model, Kris Carr, laughing about “mighty mitochondria” and professing our love for veggies, veggies and more veggies.
