Do you want to live a healthier and more robust life? The key to living a full, healthy, and joyous life lies within the foods we eat—and our relationship to them. Because health isn’t accurately measured by the circumference of your waist or how much you can bench press- true vitality is measured by how you feel, not just physically but deep within.

Olympic medalist Dotsie Bausch alongside Baywatch actress and certified health coach, Alexandra Paul, take listeners of all ages on a journey to optimal health and stamina through plant based eating.

Dotsie and Alexandra, who both fought back from severe food addictions in their twenties, interview expert nutritionists, pro athletes, innovative thought leaders, physicians and plant-based celebrities. Through their stories, you’ll learn how to optimize your health and pave a path for a more meaningful life.

Dr. Milton Mills, MD: Dairy Is Not a Health Food
“It is absolutely unnatural and unnecessary for adult humans to be consuming the milk of another species. It’s unnatural and it’s unhealthy.” - Dr. Milton Mills, MD Most doctors receive less than 24 hours worth of nutrition education during their four years of medical school; they prescribe pills and surgeries without first looking at their patients’ diet.

His first recommendation? Ditch dairy. He is on a mission to educate the public about the consequences of dairy - to both individual health and that of society.

He is truly passionate about this topic, and it was a pleasure to sit down with him and learn so much. What we discuss in this episode: Health risks of consuming dairy, including acne, digestive problems, osteoporosis, and certain cancers. Lactose intolerance and people of color. Government involvement in the dairy industry and dairy promotion. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
