“What if most of our modern diseases are really just symptoms of the same problem? The Magic Pill follows doctors, patients, scientists, chefs, farmers and journalists from around the globe who are combating illness through a paradigm shift in eating and this simple change (embracing fat as our main fuel) is showing profound promise in improving the health of people, animals and the planet.”
Filmed in both Australia and the US, The Magic Pill follows five individuals who are struggling with their health. Over the course of the documentary, they each change their diet to be high-fat and low-carbohydrate.
