A Masterclass in Health with Shawn Stevenson – Episode 360

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

“4 TRILLION dollars was spent in the US healthcare system this past year and you can’t even prevent a f*cking cold?  We could be saving so many lives if the system was focused on health.”

Shawn Stevenson is the creator and host of The Model Health Show.  Each week he releases a “masterclass” episode diving into a wide range of health-related topics.  He uncovers the very best health information in the world and helps people create their own unique model of health, happiness and success.  

This week Shawn brought his masterclass right here to Renegade Radio.  We cover why the methods we’ve been forced to follow during the pandemic have failed miserably and what we should do instead.  We also discuss how to prevent many of the diseases that are the top killers in the US, how to eat for glowing health and a great physique, and much more!
