Dr. Michael Fenster
Life is about relationships, and as a chef and a doctor, Dr. Michael S. Fenster understands the complex relationship people have with food and health. He doesn't believe in deprivation because it takes away from the joys of experiencing food, which takes away from a person's overall health and wellness.
Dr. Chef Mike Fenster, MD, is a board-certified interventional cardiologist, author, and professional chef. He's taught and explored the relationship between food and health for many years. He discusses his latest book, Food Shaman, and the 5 natural remedies to help fight chronic inflammation: ginger, thyme, boswellia, EasyFlex, and turmeric. He makes a hollandaise sauce and a spicy drink (non alcoholic) called the Aine's Bali Banger.
