I recently spent four hours at the Nestle headquarters in Cleveland.

This might surprise you, and I have to say the experience surprised me, too.

So many people within the company were genuinely interested in making a change to our food and taking action against climate change. I used to think we should just get rid of any company related to Big Food, but now I see that instead, we can engage with them to elicit bigger and better changes.

We are all human first, after all, and connection can help us create the right systemic shifts.

This week on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I was joined by visionary Vishen Lakhiani to talk about the role of education in creating transformation.

Vishen is the founder of Mindvalley University, a former computer engineer, and is noted for his ability to integrate information across the field of human transformation into unified models. His book, The Code of the Extraordinary Mind was a New York Times bestseller and hit the coveted number one spot on Amazon five times in 2017. Vishen also founded A-Fest, the transformational festival described as the “TED meets Coachella” of the industry, which is actually where I met my wife Mia.

Vishen has had an extremely interesting path to get where he is today. Unsurprisingly, food and health were a part of it.
