In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Dr. Saray Stancic about her documentary, Code Blue, her book, What’s Missing From Medicine and of course her personal journey with health and a plant-based diet. Her own journey with MS, feeling perfectly fine one day and waking up from a short hospital nap, not being able to move her legs is simply amazing. You’ll be at the edge of your seat hearing Dr. Saray Stancic speak.
