“It's like background noise: we don't notice it but it's constantly effecting us.”
“When you have emotions, all of that comes of the body.”
“And that is the deepest form of recovery you can have when you have that hook into life.”
“When your life becomes more important and more interesting to you than your eating disorder or your addiction, then you will fully be in recovery.”
“The very foods they crave are the ones they are most sensitive to.”

My guest on this episode of The Toxin Terminator podcast is Dr. Diva Nagula. He is a board-certified physician and has studied extensively in integrative and functional medicine.
Tune in Dr. Nagula talks about how his drive for recognition and acceptance created a lifestyle that lead him to be diagnosed with stage 4 Non-Hodgkins Lymphona. Both in this podcast and in his new book, From Doctor to Patient, Dr. Nagula talks about his journey openly and honestly. He explains how it ultimately led him toward living and advocating for the path of holistic wellness that includes body, mind, and spirit to not only heal but prevent disease.
