This week we're discussing how plants can be used as medicine, the ins and out of the new world of naturopathic doctors, and how doctors should work to be educators.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Tyler Jean on this week's episode. Tyler is an aspiring Naturopathic Doctor, who attends the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon. His journey in medicine began in college when he fell in love with food.

Tyler had always been a firm believer in educating others about their health. He believes that practitioners have the unique opportunity to be a teacher and a mentor that encourages others to take self-responsibility for their health and empower their patients and the general public with the knowledge necessary for living a healthy, happy, and sustainable lifestyle.
