Dr Zach Bush
Zach Bush MD is one of the few triple board-certified physicians in the country, with expertise in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Hospice/Palliative care. The breakthrough science that Dr Zach and his colleagues have delivered offers profound new insights into human health and longevity, and reveals the epicenter of our public health crisis that lies at the cross section of chemical farming, consumer behavior, and the sociopolitical norms and policies of the last decades.
Dr Zach points to his kids as the driving force behind his passion for change. He is fiercely motivated by a desire to have them experience a much brighter and healthier future. His educational efforts provide a grassroots foundation from which we can launch change in our consumer, business and legislative framework, to ultimately up-shift human behavior to bring about radical change in the mega industries of big farming and big pharma.
