    Grains are bad. Glycophate is bad. GMO foods are bad. Paleo and Keto is good. Heirloom fruits and vegetables good. Ancient grains without dna changed good but only in small quantities. WHOLE GRAINS HAVE LECTINS AND HIGH CARBS DOC! FOODS WITH PESTICIDES AND HERBICIDES KILL YOUR GUT BUGS DOC! Quit trying to lie to people so you can continue getting a check🙄.

    – would be more enjoyable if person in purple didn’t dominate the conversations.

  7. Joseph Cahoon on April 21, 2021 at 5:04 pm

    Why doesn’t government policy push people towards a healthier integrated model of healthcare where prevention is heavily rewarded by insurance premiums?

    The current oligarchs stand because not enough good doctors do their part in stopping the tyrant rulers.

    If we’d apply the hippocratic oath to acquescense of poor policy and practices you’d all be complacent deviants.

  8. trey terrence on April 21, 2021 at 5:08 pm

    The host is very disruptive. Let them finish their thought and stop interrupting. Damn

    Ah, you cured your kid’s autism with healthy eating?
    Excuse me, I think I rolled my eyes so hard that they rolled right out of my goddamn head.

    Parents? Stop. Speaking. For. Us. Self professed "health gurus"? STOP. SPEAKING. FOR. US.
    We autistic people do not need to he cured. We can’t be cured. And the idea that YOU are so desperate to cure us, acting like we have a fucking disease instead of understanding that you are close-minded as hell and refuse to accept our neurodivergant ways of living is repulsive.

  13. Emma Frost on April 21, 2021 at 5:24 pm

    I feel sluggish and tired of life when I have a meal. Fasting and small bites creates more energy.

  15. Starr23 on April 21, 2021 at 5:27 pm

    Unfortunately, it is very difficult for low income families to buy organic. This is great information and I have been changing my diet to stay healthy. I wish that more people were able to buy organic fruits and vegetables.

  16. no on April 21, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    I wish they knew this in 1967 I’ve been taking medication for 50+years

  17. Theresa U on April 21, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    I was shocked when I found out what my children were served at lunch at school. All processed high sugar bad food. We are teaching kids young to eat bad food. No wonder why we have a country over weight and diabetes. We need to re vamp our diet and eating habits.

  18. Michelle Lottie on April 21, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    Hi family ♥️ Who is good to follow from a biblical perspective? Love you all . Let God/Jehovah and Jesus Christ and their food be our medicine. ♥️

  19. Mary Williams on April 21, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    I truly believe and healing of the body through food spices oils I believe that the Earth produces everything we need to heal ourselves

  20. RealRoses Forever on April 21, 2021 at 5:34 pm

    Why is the one doctor playing down the dangers of insecticides. Yes veggies and fruits are best and organic is the best. For all who can’t afford organic then non organic is the next best. He’s down playing the research done against the insecticides. Studies have been done proving the dangers. Smh

  21. Brandon Jackson on April 21, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    Nutrition, sleep, exercise works towards healing ,but if this is not having the effects needed add deep breathwork, this helps reset the nervous system,and reduced the acidity in the blood and cell as well as regulating the inflammation,really one should start with breathwork as it is free and very powerful

  22. jaswir kaur panesar on April 21, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    If food is pure no daubt for we have healthy no need any medican and our kitchen fill with nature medical foods , I remember olden days if someone be ill give them home remedies and if someone accident give them milk with ghee + shakr ( a kind of jagadri powder) for strength I sow In my self , big problems only food going makes poison water air as well 💔💔💔💔💔💔💔

  23. Tosh James on April 21, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    Good panel overall by University of California, these conversations are necessary to educate people about food and what’s possible. – Tosh James

  24. Hermine Smith on April 21, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    Good morning Doctors. I believe that food is our medicine indeed. I planted a garden since 2018 and I enjoy eating organic vegetables from it 🍅🍌🥕🌽

    P koo

  26. Barry Laskov on April 21, 2021 at 5:37 pm

    This may sound mean, unkind and disrespectful, but I can’t ignore the fact, that of 7 “experts” on nutrition, diet and wellbeing, 5 of the panel are considerably overweight. This makes it hard for me to take them seriously. Even though I understand and agree with their comments.

  27. Shivani Chhabra on April 21, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    already said in video ; ayurveda works amazingly on GERD prevention.on observing acid reflux and hyperacidity , i consulted with Dr Meenakshi Chauhan of Planet Ayurveda.changing diet and lifestyle as suggested help me a lot in mitigating digestion problems

  28. Linda Cochrane on April 21, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Yes yes yes !!!!!!!!

  29. matthew gonano drums on April 21, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    Put a high quality piece of grass fed meat near a dog and a vegetable. See what they go for. Human beings and dogs evolved together to eat mostly meat based diets. High quality meats. Even raw. Stop trying to push this plant based mental illness bs. It’s not a natural diet.

  30. O Prolixo on April 21, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    Is food your medicine?You’re so fat…whata aj oke kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  31. Fary Moini on April 21, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    One of the biggest problems in this country is the integrative medicine is so expensive and another way of getting rich fast in this country, very few people can afford it, insurance does not cover it, and only rich people can afford organic and natural food and integrative medicine……………..

  32. Douglas Crespo on April 21, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    Do we really need this video? Hippocrates said it a loooonnngggggg time ago. Eat right.

  33. Chi Quita Feldberg on April 21, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    My mum changed 3 of her kids diet, no artificial colour, no processed foods etc, my son’s grew up with a veggie herb garden, we eat healthy and we have allways eaten organic meat and eggs, not too much daily,not too much anything, even too many bananas gives us potassium poisoning. Balance is key to everything in life, you can go vegan, I’m not, bad factory farming needs to be very ethical, I believe certain meats are extremely healthy, just eat much less and eat seafood as well. The earth has provided an abundance of food, its not so complicated. Eat from less mainstream supermarkets, shop at smaller business, smaller farmers, farmer markets. Americans have had bad eating habits for a while. The world isn’t it America. Ayedvidic have some helpful food choices, China has some great food choices, its such a huge world of options from food in a supermarket.

  34. Kaido Sulong on April 21, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    The Ayurvedic lifestyle has changed my family’s life! Everyone is feeling way better and healthier than before!

  35. SFGal9 2011 on April 21, 2021 at 5:42 pm

    Zen shares a personal story about how her son successfully participated in his own healing. And, she makes excellent points and cites studies. That saxe dude keeps trying to silence her. He even goes off on tangents in his rationales. Optics: saxe has a personal issue that’s making him come off as an unprofessional creep. STFU already.

  36. Therese Celestin on April 21, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    That is a good thing to use food as

  37. sun diego on April 21, 2021 at 5:44 pm

    Hippocrates learned it from the Ancient Africans. That’s the problem with the system- instead of giving the credit and building, they discredit and destroy

  38. Jack Handy on April 21, 2021 at 5:47 pm

    Zen Honeycutt coolest name ever

  39. Brandon Jackson on April 21, 2021 at 5:48 pm

    That sounds like a horrible way to treat lyme, natural methods don’t kill everything within the body,and still deals with lyme and in weeks or months in really bad cases

  40. Adi C on April 21, 2021 at 5:48 pm

    The man in white shirt sounds really outdated. He needs to realize that the negatives of toxins far outweigh the positives in certain foods.

  41. GEORGE GEORGIADIS on April 21, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    Most of the talkers are fat …..

  42. jrmop 09 on April 21, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    Only Europeans would create this monster of medicine to cure

  43. Today's Grail Tomorrow's Beater on April 21, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    The people in the panel look like they have insulin resistance, so this is an ironic video.

  44. julie breedon on April 21, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    Organic farming was just called ‘farming’ until supermarkets started touting ‘convenience’

  45. Annabelle Lopez on April 21, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    I’ve bought different drugs from different hospital all to no avail till Dr Alaho Olu on YouTube came to my rescue, I am finally free from the contagious Herpes Simplex Virus.

  46. Kalu Uka on April 21, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    Natural remedy has been God’s plan for man’s food and medicine at creation – Genesis 1:29. Now man suffers dangerous ailments because he chooses inorganic foods and inorganic medicines. All the Great men of old died at a very good old age because they obeyed God.

  47. Christine Hodge on April 21, 2021 at 5:54 pm

  48. Kaido Sulong on April 21, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    What a panel!

  49. Brandon Jackson on April 21, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    Another way to predigest is to chew for a long time,it’s really hard to do,you really have to stay present and it takes concentration and attention,but I think this is very healthy as well!

  50. J K on April 21, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    I’m not white and grew up with immigrant parents who ate very healthy. I learned a lot about the ingredients in the foods, how and why you eat a certain thing, eating seasonally fresh and why thats important, etc. Its shocking to learn how most Americans…just dont know how to eat and are so sick. I dont have allergies and am healthy. Sadly, if youre raised to eat wrong you really wont change this in time. You’ll always fall back on the bad stuff bc thats all you know. This whoile talk sounded so patronizing. Talk talk talk especially about their feelings, thats all americans know how to do
