This was classic.
When I read Dr. Peter Glidden’s book The MD Emperor Has No Clothes a few months ago I knew it would make for an eye-opening show.
Dr. Glidden, a naturopathic doctor, doesn’t hold anything back. And he’s apparently not afraid to ruffle a few feathers.
While some may find his words controversial and unsettling, no one can question his passion for ensuring that everyone get the medical care they need — a type of care that addresses the root cause of symptoms and disease.
