Show Notes

This is part 2 of a two-part interview with Mary Ruddick. You can listen to part 1 here.

I really enjoyed my conversation with Mary Ruddick. She’s a practicing nutritionist and understands what works in “real life” versus what works in theory. We talked about what we’re seeing in our practices and what has been working for our patients.

Mary Ruddick is a seasoned medical nutritionist, researcher, and philanthropist who specializes in metabolic, immune, and nervous system disorders. She spent the last several years traveling throughout Africa, the Blue Zones, and throughout remote regions of the world to observe the diets of those not affected by chronic, infectious, or emergent disease. She is currently studying with tribes throughout Latin and South America while concurrently conducting a twelve-month study on Neuropathy in the States.
