ENCORE: Patient Empowerment, Part 1
July 9, 2020
Dr. William Davis, author of the best-seller “Wheat Belly,” argues for patient empowerment in a new book, “Undoctored: Why Healthcare Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor."

Dr. Davis highlights the benefits of a unique probiotic—lactobacillus reuteri—and offers a recipe for a gut-repleting yogurt that restores youthful appearance, strengthens bones, and combats muscle wasting.
