QUOTES: “Western medicine is fantastic if you’re acutely ill or you break a bone. I’m not knocking western medicine, but to take that model and use and extrapolate that model for all our problems in the culture today is, you know, we end up with a very limited way of treating people…” [4:01]
“…it’s more about preserving and maintaining as we get older rather than growing stronger and stronger…” [17:20]
“Ordinary things we do on a daily basis that have an extraordinary effect on our health.” [42:06]
