Dr. Travis Stork (’The Doctors’) interview for his new book ‘The Doctor Is In’

travis stork

Dr. Travis Stork, the Nashville emergency physician from syndicated health show “The Doctors,”  just wrote a book about health that conveys no gimmicks, no grapefruit diet, no way to lose 30 pounds in 30 days!

Rather, it’s packed with common sense. Dubbed “The Doctor Is In: A 7-Step Prescription for Optimal Wellness,” the book espouses that you take control of your life, that you can find exercise you like and healthy foods that taste good and not cost a fortune. He notes that antibiotics are often overused and not properly prescribed. You don’t need to consume vitamins if you’re eating a properly balanced diets. He also directs people to proper health sites for proper information and not misinformation.

Despite having been on “The Bachelor” (and not marrying the gal he picked), Stork declined to say who he’s now dating, if anybody.

Here’s the video interview I did with him when he visited Atlanta last month:

Now that I am off for the summer. I love watching your show!There are many aspects that come out in your show that I need to apply in my everyday life in order to have many years for myself and my family I love so much. However, I am hoping that you can please mention if the way we feel about ourselves can effect whether or not we are able to successfully better our lives of becoming healthier or not. Lately I’ve been feeling a great deal of anxiety and YES I am overweight can it just be in my mind. Whatever it is it hurts me tremously and when I feel this way it ends up bring many tears and a great deal of saddness. This saddness sometimes feels unbareable. Thank you sooooo much for educating the world (me) with important issues on how to better ourselves!

I ran into Dr. Stork and a tall brunette who seemed to be his girlfriend in Nashville last year. He was extremely nice, down to earth and genuine. I bought his new book and i found it very good and to convey and important message. There needs to be more good doctors like this.
