Special guest: Dr. Daniel Nuzum
Dr. Daniel Nuzum was born and raised in a family of naturopaths. He was his parents’ only biological son, but when he was 7 years old, his parents started adopting children; over time they adopted 32 kids, most with special needs. This is where Daniel’s love for natural medicine began, as he watched his mother make the necessary dietary changes for each child. Alternative medicine came naturally to him and when he received his license at the age of 20, he became the youngest licensed naturopath in US history. Dr. Nuzum is a Doctor of Osteopathy, Naturopathy, Naprapathic Medicine, and a Medical Acupuncturist, and has been formulating his own line of nutritional supplements for many years.
