“Sickness is no longer the enemy of the healthcare system. Healthy people are the enemy of the healthcare system.”
— William Davis, M.D.

Greetings, SuperFriends, and welcome to today’s show.

Today, we are joined by past guest and bestselling author Dr. William Davis, who’s latest book, Undoctored, takes a look into the medical system, how it’s failed us, and how we can all become more informed about our health. You probably know Dr. Davis from his previous book, Wheat Belly, or from his popular episode on this show.

In this episode, we talk about healthcare, why it isn’t serving you, and how you can flip the script on the conversation you have with your doctor. Dr. Davis shares how you can take charge of your health, what you can do to improve it, and much, much more. I think you’re really going to enjoy it.

And now, without further adieu, let me present to you, Dr. William Davis

Favorite Quotes from William Davis, M.D.:

“What I started to see on a huge scale was that people were become healthy, and slender, and younger appearing… despite their doctors.”
“It became clear that you could reverse literally hundreds of conditions, and lose weight by doing this.”
“What we have is the means for individuals, the public, to regain health on an extraordinary scale, far better than your doctor could ever achieve.”
“What we have now is this misalignment of interests. You and I are interested in health, doctors are interested in money. And the two often don’t intersect.”
“Healthcare has become this vehicle for greed.”
“Sickness is no longer the enemy of the healthcare system. Healthy people are the enemy of the healthcare system.”
“If there’s an ad for a drug, or drugs… leave!”
“Never pay attention to those kinds of ridiculous studies paid for by the manufacturer.”
“Even though information is exchanged in milliseconds, the human mind doesn’t change in milliseconds. It takes decades and years and generations.”
“Health should be free! It should be like freedom of speech.”
