In the wake of the largest study of its kind that demonstrates that obesity is the single biggest factor that lands people with Covid-19 in the hospital, we discuss the role that “metabolic fitness” plays in resistance to the coronavirus with Dr. Loren Marks, Functional Medicine chiropractor in New York City.

During this critical time when we're all focused on immune health, we're reprising this special episode about mushrooms’ health benefits, which include strengthening our immune systems.
