Food as Medicine with Pharmacist and Health Coach, Ahn Nguyen

Dr. Anh Nguyen always wanted to be a pharmacist, and enjoyed many aspects of the work.  But she realized people were just getting on more and more medications, and were never really coming off of them.  

She was curious about how she could help people come off medications safely, and how to use food as medicine instead.  

This led her to study health coaching and functional medicine.  She also got interested in bodybuilding and started to train for competitions.  Meanwhile she was dealing with illness in her family, which led to her own compromised health.

She shares some of her learnings with us on this interview.  Here's what we talk about:

  • How to approach pharmaceuticals in a safer way
  • How pharmaceuticals can cause nutrient depletions
  • How pharmaceuticals can cause thyroid symptoms
  • Which nutritional supplements she recommends to restore thyroid health

and much more.  

Dr. Anh hosts a popular weekly podcast called Food As Medicine that you can find on iTunes or through her website, Dranh.com.  

I was her guest on episode 49, talking about Fertility After Age 35.
