Scientist Dr. Que Collins Explains Deuterium and The Importance of Deuterium Depletion for the Prevention of Chronic Illness and Cancer

August 5, 2020

On today’s episode of Courageous Wellness, we have an incredible conversation with Dr. Que Collins, principal scientist of Deuterium Depletion Therapies and the co-founder and principal investigator, at Cignature Health Metabolic Clinic – the first clinic in the world to use deuterium and tracer technologies to describe and follow the health status of patients with metabolic disorders such as cancer, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders.


Now, if you are wondering what deuterium depletion is  -- don’t worry, we had no idea either, before this conversation and our minds have been blown. Deuterium depletion  is so crucial to our overall health and in this episode, Dr. Collins breaks down why we all need to be aware of this in order to prevent major diseases. 


Dr. Collins shares his own personal journey and his background in cancer research, shares with us about facing the devastation of cancer in his immediate family, breaks down the science of deuterium, and enlightens us on eating for optimal health. Spoiler: Dr Collins is not dogmatic about defining or labeling what diet you follow as long as it depletes deuterium, and we don’t think listeners of this podcast will be surprised to learn what kind of diet that is. We learned so much from Dr. Collins and can’t wait for you to hear this episode.
