Don’t Take the Drug: The Blatantly Broken State of the Pharmaceutical Industry w/Billy Wease

The typical prescription drug has an average of 69 side effects on the package insert, and Big Pharma isn’t even trying to hide it.

They broadcast the side effects on television, even going as far as telling us that we could die if we take their cocktail of pills. 

The system is blatantly broken, and no free-thinking, empowered human being listens to those commercials and wants to take a prescription.

Sovereign individuals opt out of the system and take the path of optimization instead. 

Can we take care of our health so effectively that we’d never need to take a single drug?

In this episode, I’m joined by pharmacist and author of the #1 best-selling book “The 21st Century Pharmacist”, Billy Wease.

He talks about how he’s disrupting his industry and preaching the message of optimization. 

I don’t believe in sick. Being sick is a choice, it is not your genetics. -Billy Wease  

Three Things We Learned 

  1. The tragedy of healthcare education
    Are students getting educated on optimization or actually being indoctrinated into a broken system?
  2. There’s no optimization quick fix
    If you’ve spent decades treating your body like a dumpster fire, how can a 90 day program undo all that damage?
  3. The most amazing fat loss tools we’ve ever been given
    Why are bioregulators so heavily demonized in the press when their effectiveness is clear as day?
