Health’s Big Secret w. Susan Downs and Alex Voss (Ep 20)

Written by Erik Levi, FNTP — Updated on September 20, 2020

I had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Susan Downs and Alex Voss who are co-producers for the film “The Big Secret”.

The Big Secret was created by five-time Emmy Award-winning producer Alex Voss and multi-award-winning filmmaker and integrative physician, Susan Downs.

What started as a personal journey to regain his health, Alex came face to face with the sad reality concerning the influence that big money has on our health and well being. Voss and Downs look at the history of medicine in the US and the influence that wealth and power have on the decisions that your doctor makes concerning your medical care.

This shocking documentary is the result of research and personal interviews with leading experts in the fields of medicine and nutrition. “Our goal is to empower people with knowledge and start a conversation that will ultimately lead to life-saving changes to our personal health, and reform in our healthcare system.” The Big Secret is only the beginning.
