In this compelling episode of 'The Health Feast,' we start by unraveling the multi-layered journey of Dr. Daphne Bascom. From her early days in medical school to her current role as a certified health coach and Coaching Team leader with The Vegan Gym, Dr. Bascom's story sets the stage for a conversation that goes beyond the surface.

We delve into the uncomfortable reality of financial incentives in healthcare. It's a system that seems more designed for profit than for wellness, a truth that Dr. Bascom, Dr. Rak, and Po dissect with unflinching honesty. But it's not just about systemic issues; it gets personal. Dr. Bascom opens up about the emotional toll on healthcare providers, offering a raw look at the often-overlooked human element within the medical profession.

As we search for solutions, the concept of community accountability emerges. Po shares his own struggles and triumphs, adding a layer of relatability and urgency to the dialogue. The conversation wraps up with Dr. Bascom, leaving us with seeds of positivity and empowerment. It's a call to action for each of us to take control of our health and, by extension, our lives.
