This episode is brought to you by Cozy Earth, BiOptimizers, and InsideTracker. For decades, I’ve been on a mission to help my patients understand that weight loss is not about “calories in, calories out”.

Today, I’m excited to talk with Dr. Casey Means about the main drivers people face when struggling to...

How To Use Nutrients To Support Our Brain Health

9/30/2022
This episode is brought to you by Beekeeper’s Naturals and Athletic Greens. Your brain is an organ that’s connected to everything else happening in your body. Most of us never learn how to manage our energy and bodies. Instead, we use drugs like sugar, caffeine, and alcohol to self-medicate and manage our energy and moods. We don’t connect our behaviors and choices with how we feel. Many of us get too little good food, nutrients, light, air, water, rest, sleep, rhythm, exercise, community,...

A Roadmap To Creating Healthy Love And Relationships with Mia Lux

9/28/2022
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, BiOptimizers, and InsideTracker. Our relationships affect our health and happiness. The problem is that we’re never taught how to seek, create, nurture, and assess our relationships the same way we do our careers and bank accounts. But the cost of bad relationships on ourselves and our society truly adds up. The relationships many of us grew up around and might consider “normal” are in fact dysfunctional, creating a negative cycle we often...

How To Treat The Root Cause Of Thyroid Problems

9/23/2022
This episode is sponsored by Paleovalley and Pendulum. Thyroid disease affects one in five women and one in ten men, yet 50 percent of people with thyroid disease go undiagnosed. The main role of thyroid hormone is to stimulate metabolism, and it affects almost every function of the body. That’s why thyroid imbalance can cause so many different symptoms. In today’s episode of a new series called Health Bites, I discuss thyroid disease and why an out-of-whack thyroid can stall your...

9/21/2022
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Cozy Earth. If you’ve ever wondered if supplements are worthwhile or just create expensive urine, this is the podcast episode for you. While I wish it wasn’t the case, I do believe we need supplements to make up for the nutrients we can no longer get through food alone. It’s extra important to note, though, that not all supplements are created equal. And please keep in mind they’re called “supplements” for a reason, not...

Simple Practices And Tips For Better Sleep

9/19/2022
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and Mitopure. Sleep is a keystone of health. Most people know they should get more high-quality sleep, but they don’t really know where to start. But understanding the way our brain and neurotransmitters work means we can hack our sleep to not just feel amazing but to level up our focus, skills, and knowledge. And it’s not all about what happens at night, either—getting the right exposure to light at the right times has a profound...

What's Causing Your IBS And How To Heal Your Gut

9/16/2022
This episode is sponsored by InsideTracker and Athletic Greens. Believe it or not, the surface area of your small intestine, which is where your food is absorbed, is the size of a tennis court. Your small intestine is also the home of your gut-immune system, which accounts for about 60 percent of your total immune system. The lining of this sophisticated system is just one cell layer away from a toxic sewer where all of the bacteria and undigested food particles live in your gut. If that...

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Thrive Market, and Levels. We’ve been told that cognitive decline is inevitable, but researchers are discovering that we have more power over our aging brains than we once thought.

How To Know If You're Magnesium Deficient And What To Do About It

This episode is sponsored by ButcherBox and Athletic Greens. Think of magnesium as the relaxation mineral. Anything that is tight, irritable, crampy, and stiff—whether it is a body part or even a mood—can be a sign of magnesium deficiency. This critical mineral is actually responsible for over 600 enzyme reactions and is found in all of your tissues—but mainly in your bones, muscles, and brain. You must have it for your cells to make energy, for many different chemical pumps to work, to...

Using Diet And Lifestyle To Reverse Symptoms Of MS

This episode is sponsored by InsideTracker and Athletic Greens. Glutathione is the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease—yet you’ve probably never heard of it. It’s the secret to preventing aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia, and more, and it is necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer’s disease.

8/31/2022
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, and InsideTracker. All living things are programmed with a certain lifespan, which can be dramatically different from species to species.
