Marie Ruggles: Clinical nutritionist

We are what we eat.  So goes the proverbial saying.  But to what extent does the food on our plate determine the quality of our health now and for the rest of our lives?  Marie Ruggles is a clinical nutritionist and the author of Optimize Your Immune System: Create Health and Resilience with a Kitchen Pharmacy. In this Live Long and Master Aging (LLAMA) podcast interview we explore what it means to use the kitchen pantry to promote robust health. From whole foods to superfoods, supplements to sunlight, Marie shares natural wellness strategies and practical options for vibrant longevity.
