"We should be building our understanding of the immune system as a relationship. It's a balancing act. It's a symphony of micro-ecosystems communicating with one another, not a war-like mentality that the human mindset has brought to this scientific belief system.”

If we lose our planet, the human race doesn’t survive. As a species, we are in the midst of a major extinction event, as our systems of food, housing, and medicine have decimated our earth, its natural resources, and its biodiversity. In fact, in the worst-case scenario, we could see the end of humanity within just 70-120 years. I don’t know about you, but as a father, that’s about as concerning as it gets for me. 

However, all is not lost. My guest today, Dr. Zach Bush, is as an MD who specializes in internal medicine and endocrinology, who is also an internationally recognized thought leader on the importance of microbiomes when it comes to health, disease, and nutrition. He’s doing remarkable work to save our planet, and he believes that we still have an opportunity to reverse the damage done and create the most verdant, biodiverse planet to have ever existed.

Today, Zach joins the podcast for a deep dive into how we can cultivate extraordinary relationships with ourselves, each other, and the Earth.


  • Why Zach is optimistic about the future of our planet despite the massive challenges and changes we’re facing now – and will face in the decades to come.
  • What we can learn about our planet and each other from the coronavirus crisis – and how this challenge has revealed what’s at stake for our future. 
  • How to let go of what’s beyond your physical control and tap into states of elevated consciousness.
  • The reasons the microbiome is foundational to our health and the health of the planet. 
  • Why probiotics probably aren’t quite doing for you what marketers want you to believe they are.
