“I really realized as I was seeing these amazing results with my patients that I couldn’t keep the word to myself. I needed to spread the message and say, ‘conventional medicine failed me and it is my mission to not have it fail you too.’” (9:58)

“I don’t say that I can cure autoimmunity, but I say that I can reverse it, or you can reverse it. And that means getting symptom free, getting medication free and often getting your antibodies to go down or go away.” (14:25)

“Either you can be on super toxic medications that have a potentially whole other list of side effects and maybe aren’t even giving you your life back, or you can make some diet and lifestyle changes, not be on any medications, and have your life back. For most people, the choice is pretty simple.” (17:33)

“Most people don’t even notice the difference because the food is so delicious. The food in the cookbook is amazing and people don’t realize that they aren’t eating gluten or dairy.” (30:30)
