Physical health is an important part of health.  It’s only one aspect! But it’s important.  It’s hard to meditate when you’re in pain. And it’s hard to be as sympathetic and kind of a person as you can be, when you’re preoccupied with health problems.

 

Dr. Joel Fuhrman is a doctor and nutritionalist who advocates a vegan way of eating, and he’s changed a lot of people’s lives with his extremely well-informed advice.  What I don’t like about this video is that it looks like an infomercial.
