Welcome to the latest edition of the Mind Gut Conversation podcast. In this episode, I talk with Dr. Sharon Horesh Bergquist, a Harvard-trained, nationally recognized lifestyle medicine pioneer.

Dr. Bergquist is the Pam R. Rollins Professor of Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine, as well as founder and director of Emory Lifestyle Medicine & Wellness. She is an advocate for advancing healthcare by integrating lifestyle medicine, resiliency, and prevention-based science into clinical care.  She has contributed to numerous health segments, is the host of The Whole Health Cure podcast, and author of the upcoming book Plantology: a cookbook based on the science of plant-based eating.

In this conversation, we discuss a wide range of topics related to her holistic approach to health and disease, including:

  • Her unusual career path from mainstream medicine to a new way of healthcare emphasizing prevention and lifestyle changes.
  • Her particular interest in the role of nutrition in health.
  • Her new book, Plantology.
