Chronic illness, poor mental health and other disorders are topics trending throughout our daily feeds and today’s guest on “Happiness through Hardship” – The Podcast, Dr. Kenneth Bock, helps clarify hidden causes of these. Dr. Bock is a leader in integrative medicine with over 35 years of experience diagnosing the root causes of chronic illnesses and restoring balance to his patient’s immune systems. He’s a sought after medical leader; many of his patients travel throughout the world to experience his expertise at tackling medical problems that have been difficult to diagnose. On today’s episode we talk about his new book, Brain Inflamed and take a deep dive discussing inflammation, balancing our systems and eating for optimal living.
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.
