By April 23, 2020 Health Theory

Health coach Chris Kresser, author of the Paleo Cure and one of the most influential people in nutrition and fitness, is not just someone who has studied and practiced functional medicine for years. He’s also someone who has had to use his own approach in order to overcome a decade-long struggle with chronic illness. On this episode of Health Theory with Tom Bilyeu, Chris Kresser details the consequences of lifestyle and diet related disease, a topic that is garnering significant attention because of the connection between pre-existing conditions and COVID-19 mortality. He delves into the mystery of why diabetes is an even more severe problem than lung disease for COVID-19 sufferers, details the kinds of lifestyle changes we should all be making, and explains why his approach to health and medicine is ultimately always individualized.
