    Why You Are Tired All The Time

    Why You Are Tired All The Time

    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and Eight Sleep.
    Feeling tired during the day may not just be due to a poor night’s sleep. Most of us can relate to feeling run-down and tired, even when we’re getting enough sleep. There are many reasons why your body might not be functioning well during the day.
    In this compilation episode, I talk to Dr. Steven Gundry and Dr. Elizabeth Boham about the many factors that can impact energy production such as diet, circadian rhythm, movement, gut health, and more. We also get into dietary recommendations, fixing nutritional deficiencies and hormonal imbalances, and much more. 
    Dr. Steven Gundry is one of the world’s top cardiothoracic surgeons and a pioneer in nutrition, as well as medical director at The International Heart and Lung Institute Center for Restorative Medicine. He has spent the last two decades studying the microbiome and now helps patients use diet and nutrition as a key form of treatment. He is author of many New York Times bestselling books including The Plant Paradox, and The Plant Paradox Cookbook, and The Longevity Paradox: How to Die Young at a Ripe Old Age, and just released The Energy Paradox: What to Do When Your Get-Up-and-Go Has Got Up and Gone. He also is the founder of GundryMD, a line of wellness products and supplements, and host of The Dr. Gundry Podcast.
    Dr. Elizabeth Boham is Board Certified in Family Medicine from Albany Medical School, and she is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and the Medical Director of The UltraWellness Center. Dr. Boham lectures on a variety of topics, including Women’s Health and Breast Cancer Prevention, insulin resistance, heart health, weight control and allergies.

    Protecting your brain and cognitive function is not just for the elderly. It’s never too early to start protecting your brain, which is something we should all think more about as Alzheimer’s and dementia rates continue to rise. We can start with healthy lifestyle choices that affect diet, sleep, stress management, and more. The bonus of brain-healthy lifestyle choices like these is that they protect the health of your entire body as well.
     
    In this episode of my new Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about Alzheimer’s and dementia. We talk about early detection, contributors to cognitive dysfunction, foods that fuel the brain, and so much more. We also discuss how other factors, such as toxicity, sleep apnea, and even lack of community, affect brain health.

    5 Easy Ways To Improve Your Health Today

    5 Easy Ways To Improve Your Health Today

    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and InsideTracker.
    Wellness is more than just eating right and exercising; it’s also much more than just feeling “okay.” Feeling well means feeling whole, balanced, vibrant, and alive. And there are many moving pieces that we can tap into to feel empowered in our own wellness journey. Functional Medicine looks at the body with a systems-based approach, understanding how all our different parts work together and looking at a symptom as a sign of dysfunction that we need to get to the root cause of, not just tame. 
    I sat down with Dr. Elizabeth Boham to discuss what it means to get to the root cause of disease and how the principles we practice do exactly that. We talk about the many different parts of healing the whole body, like enhancing detoxification pathways, correcting nutrient deficiencies, supporting the microbiome, and so much more.
    Dr. Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine as part of my team at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing, she has helped thousands of people achieve their wellness goals. She is part of the faculty of the Institute for Functional Medicine and has been featured on the Dr. Oz show and in a variety of publications and media including Huffington Post, The Chalkboard Magazine, and Experience Life. Her DVD Breast Wellness: Tools to Prevent and Heal from Breast Cancer explores the Functional Medicine approach to keeping your breasts and whole body well, a topic she is passionate about as a breast cancer survivor.

    The Keys To Living To 120: Blue Zone Wisdom with Dan Buettner

    The Keys To Living To 120: Blue Zone Wisdom with Dan Buettner

    This episode is brought to you by Eight Sleep, Athletic Greens, and Mitopure.
    I recently spent time in Sardinia, Italy, which is known for having one of the world’s longest-lived populations. It simply blew me away. After getting to know the people, their day-to-day activities, their diets, and their sense of community I can totally see why they live such long and happy lives. So, how can we embrace these same aspects of Sardinian life in our own busy Western world? Blue Zones pioneer Dan Buettner joins me on this episode to talk about that and so much more. Dan Buettner is an explorer, National Geographic Fellow, award-winning journalist and producer, and New York Times bestselling author. He discovered the five places in the world— dubbed Blue Zones hotspots—where people live the longest, healthiest lives.
    Dan now works in partnership with municipal governments, large employers, and health insurance companies to implement Blue Zones Projects in communities, workplaces, and universities. Blue Zones Projects are well-being initiatives that apply lessons from the Blue Zones to entire communities by focusing on changes to the local environment, public policy, and social networks. The program has dramatically improved the health of more than 5 million Americans to date. His new book, The Blue Zones Challenge: A 4-Week Plan for a Longer Better Life is a four-week guide and year-long sustainability program to jump-start your longevity journey.

Was very excited about HTB and went online to purchase some from Big Bold Health and discovered they only ship to two countries outside of the US. It would be good if you could review products that all of your listeners can access.
