We're back with another edition of the TeddyTalk podcast. This one falls more on the lessons in life than leadership category but of course the two aren't that far apart in my world. I had a chance to sit down with two wonderful humans who also happened to be gifted medical professionals with backgrounds in complementary medicine which means training in both Eastern and Western and holistic modalities. They are Dr. Alona Pulde and Dr. Matt Lederman. And it turns out of course that they're married to each other as well.
So I first became aware of them through their presence in a documentary on plant based diet called Forks Over Knives. Some of you may have seen it. It's a wonderful documentary showing the benefits and scientific background of having a plant-based diet. Some years later I was introduced to them personally by my pals at Whole Foods Market and that was at the time that Alona and Matt were just opening some wellness and medical centers for Whole Foods team members and their families. I was helping them on the leadership side of things while immensely enjoying our concurrent chats about health, nutrition, and the benefits of a plant-based diet which those of you who know me well will appreciate I am deeply committed to.
So you'll hear the story not only of their journey into complementary medicine but also how that has evolved into a search for joy from the inside out. So as they say sit back and enjoy and listen to the first ever TeddyTalk podcast with two folks at once.
