EPISODE 342: Traditional vs. Alternative Medicine

Modern medicine’s best thinking pales in comparison to the wisdom of our bodies. The best science only has a very rudimentary understanding of the dynamic and complex organism we inhabit, and yet we’re always looking for the magic pill and the prescriptive cure.On this week’s show, we’ll explore ancestral wisdom for the modern man and the seemingly impossible attempt to find a balance.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why dead people don’t teach us everything we need to know about living people
  • How to work with your body for health and healing
  • Why a ‘sick’ response is often just the body’s healthy response to self-care
  • How the flawed current medical system is more about maintenance and survival than health
