Zach Bush MD on Human, Animal, Plant and Earth Connectivity

Season 2, Ep. 9

Wow, to say our minds were blown is an understatement! This week we are delighted to present to you our wonderful guest and friend, the mighty brain that is Zach Bush MD.

For those who don’t know Zach, he is a renowned, multi-disciplinary physician of internal medicine, endocrinology, hospice care, and internationally recognised educator on the microbiome as it relates to human health, soil health, food systems, and a regenerative future.

And if all that wasn’t a mouthful… Brace yourselves, you might need a pen and paper beside you for this one! Dr. Zach takes us through chemotherapy, death, the killing of intuition, soil degeneration, dinosaurs, our dying food system, energy, afterlife and somehow manages to link them all beautifully together in an episode that I repeat had us flabbergasted.

“Her intuition was not to put those tablets in her mouth. Her intuition was that there was another cause for her cancer, there was another path she could have taken. And I wore her down over a 45 min period and broke her instinct. I broke her intuition not to take those pills. And when she swallowed those pills, it was probably the worst day of my life as a physician. It was the moment I realised I was breaking human beings intuition to follow my pharmaceutical pathway.”

You won’t regret giving this episode a listen and if you want to find out more about Zach, ION and his work visit:

I had nothing.”From rock bottom to up top - John has an appetite for life that is beyond none. His motto is tough but warranted, “You have to face your demons head on, you can’t run away from it.
