An avid cyclist who raced competitively in his twenties, award-winning chef Seamus Mullen was diagnosed in 2007 with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune disease that forced him to rethink his relationship with food.
Initially he enlisted the pharmaceutical options available for his disease. Instead of feeling better, he became increasingly worse and even died in the ICU.
Thankfully, he came back to life. It was a gift he used to course-correct his approach towards his illness.
Listen as Seamus joins Dr. Taz to share how he used food to overcome RA, the role food plays in chronic illness, and why it's so important to have the "right" relationship with food -- whether or not you're suffering from a chronic illness.
