I am so excited to welcome Dr. Josh Axe, leadership expert, entrepreneur, physician, husband, father, co-founder and CVO of Ancient Nutrition, back to the show. He’s here for an open and honest conversation about his latest study and passion: Mindset as medicine. 

He's also a bestselling author, and his latest book is due out this April. We outline the research and personal anecdotal content baked into Think This, Not That, the title, among many, which Dr. Josh is most proud of and most excited to see in the hands of people around the world.

We hear about how Josh spent ten months in bed suffering from a debilitating spine condition, the practices – mental and physical – which set him free from that reality, how he and Kelly approach parenting in the modern world, identity dynamics, masculinity vs. femininity, and so much more.

But the key question in play is… Who could you become?

As we learn today, the answer is limited only by your own imagination, but it can be amplified through community, self-development, and spirituality. It’s an important lesson for all of us to remember as a means to continue one’s growth as a person – and even more important as parents, as we seek to challenge our little ones to be the best versions of themselves they can be.
