Ep. 123 - Road Trip: The Kellogg Brothers (Pt 1 of 2)

John Harvey Kellogg, The Seventh Day Adventist Church, & the Battle Creek Sanitarium

Alex and Jess chat a little and then Alex dives in to part 1 of a 2 part story. This week he tells Jess about the creation of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, the upbringing of John Harvey Kellogg, and how he eventually ran the Battle Creek Sanitarium. What kinds of procedures was he a large proponent of? How did he "clinically" use yogurt? And why exactly did he make everyone collect their stool samples all day everyday? The answers to these questions and more in this weeks episode! Join us!
