On this episode you are going to hear a conversation between myself and Dr. Monica Aggarwal.

Dr. Aggarwal is a Board Certified Cardiologist.  She has expertise in heart failure, pulmonary hypertension and prevention.

Her path in prevention started with her own illness when she was diagnosed with RA. It was then, with the fear she would not practice medicine again, that she found her path to whole body medicine.

In this interview we discuss:
-Being Diagnosed with RA
-Going from MD to becoming a patient
-What is the Leaky Gut and what is it’s association with auto-immune disease and inflammatory illnesses
-The Impact of dairy and inflammation and it’s connection to Leaky Gut
-The work and research she is doing at University of Florida on the gut biome,
– How she has been able to heal from RA with a plant based diet.
