The Roots of Inflammation

The Roots of Inflammation

goopfellas - October 9, 2019 - 35:48

“The basis of most chronic diseases is inflammation,” says Dr. Alejandro Junger, cardiologist, creator of the Clean Program (the OG elimination diet), and author of Clean7. Today, Junger shares how he came to functional medicine, Ayurveda, and intermittent fasting—and how he melded the three into a new, seven-day detox and clean-food plan that he believes will change the course of our health forever. The goopfellas cohosts ask Junger for his advice and tips—about traditional herbs, reducing toxic burden, aligning with your doshas, and much more. (For more, see the goopfellas podcast hub.)

About The Show

What drives people to change, to heal, to reinvent themselves? How do we reclaim our health, bounce back from heartbreak, flip the script? On goopfellas, two friends who have become familiar with unlikely personal transformations have raw conversations with people who have experienced profound shifts in perspective and well-being. Together, functional medicine practitioner Will Cole, DC, and chef Seamus Mullen get at the catalysts that bring people out of their dark night and into their purpose. Each of their goopfellas guests—from athletes to actors to authors—is different. As are the hosts: Mullen himself almost died from rheumatoid arthritis, and Cole’s day job is helping people uncover and overturn the roots of dis-ease. But you’ll likely see pieces of yourself in all their conversations, reflected in every one of their challenges. And we hope, from the lessons they learned along the way, you’ll find something you need to bring about a change, big or small, in your own life.
