Whilst we’re taking a short break from the pod we’re re-releasing one of my favourite episodes from 2020 with the truly inspirational  Dr William W. Li.

I had the pleasure of finally meeting William a few weeks ago and if you don’t know him, Dr Li is. An internationally renowned physician, scientist, and author of the New York Times Bestseller ‘Eat to Beat Disease - The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself’

His groundbreaking work has led to the development of more than 30 new medical treatments, has impacted more than 50 million people worldwide, and covers more than 70 diseases including cancer, diabetes, blindness, heart disease, and obesity. His TED Talk, “Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?” has garnered more than 11 million views. Dr. Li has appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, CNN, and CNBC and has been featured in USA Today, TIME, The Atlantic, and O Magazine. Dr. Li is President and medical director of the Angiogenesis Foundation.

We talk about a range of topics from his latest book including the 5 defence systems of the body: Your Microbes, stems cells, immune system , angiogenesis, your genes and how nutrition and lifestyle can positively influence them. As a food as medicine pioneer who started these conversations way before I even thought of The Doctor’s Kitchen, Dr Li has been a true inspiration of mine.


On this episode we talk about

  • The microbiota, how certain foods can improve your body’s ability to regulate sugar
  • What stem cells are and the different types of foods that can help promote regeneration
  • The benefits of food for the immune system support
  • The future of food prescriptions and how medicine could look in 10-15 years time
  • The impact of food to positively impact the efficacy of medicine in the field of cancer, cardiology and neurology.
