In this information-dense show, Dr. Worden tells us of her research with ketones and cancer, how we are not determined by our DNA, the medical need to treat the entire person not just the physical body, and the tests your doctor should be doing and probably is not…What is our current healthcare system lacking?

“What happened to looking at the person as a whole? It’s always connected. The knee bone is connected to the shin bone and mind, body, and spirit. If you’re not addressing all three of those, you can only put on band aids. All you’re doing is turning off or cutting off the fire alarm and you’re leaving the fire still going. This is bad medicine.”
“Your doctors work for you. You are paying us for our medical education. We work for you and you have the right to your doctors.”
“Inflammation is the base root of most chronic degenerative diseases, David.”
“We want to live to 120 or beyond in good health, that’s the key. I don’t wait until there’s a problem. I want to see what I can see and make the changes that we need to make.”
“You want to age yourself? Don’t eat well, don’t exercise, and stress.”
“It’s not about religion. It’s about feeling spiritually connected to something outside of yourself so you don’t feel alone. You feel so safe and protected and loved no matter what.”
