    Dementia Prevention with Dr Mitch Clionski

    Dementia Prevention with Dr Mitch Clionski

    How can we prevent dementia? Did you know that up to 60% of dementia cases may be preventable through lifestyle changes?


    Today's inspiring guest is neuropsychologist Dr. Mitchell Cleonski, sharing his story and expertise on a subject that is very close to my heart – it runs in my family and I know just how devastating it can be.

    So please dive in with me and let's learn about how to improve our nutrition, manage our stress, and get proper medical care to support brain health as we age.


    Taking care of our health can help stave off cognitive decline even in those with a family history of dementia. Ask your doctor for a cognitive screening to establish a baseline and monitor any changes. Early detection is key!


    As Dr. Cleonski says during our conversation, "Education is one of the moderators of future dementia risk." Our education starts here and now. Please join us.

    "Dementia is a progressive neurological disease. So it's a change in how our brains are structured, and how they function." ~ Dr. Cleonski

    5 Worst Diets for Men Over 40 with Funk Roberts

    5 Worst Diets for Men Over 40 with Funk Roberts

    What are some of the worst diets out there for men over 40? I'm Funk Roberts and my goal is to empower you with knowledge and tools to make informed dietary decisions that will positively impact your life.

    Sure, perhaps a Paleo diet worked for cavemen – but they only lived to 30, right? The negative impact of specific diets on your health and well-being, diets that are hyped up as quick fixes on social media, cannot be underestimated for men over 40.

    We're at that stage when we need to take our hormonal balance and cortisol levels into serious consideration as we aim for a diet that becomes a lifestyle.

    And so in this episode I'm critiquing some of the more popular diets out there and looking at them from the perspective of a man in his 40s, 50s, 60s, or even 70s. A man who needs nutritional support to provide for his family.

    I understand that navigating the world of nutrition can be overwhelming, but I'm here to guide you every step of the way. In this episode I also offer the ultimate solution to optimizing your nutrition for long-term lifestyle success. Please join us.

    "I just need to follow a nutrition lifestyle that supports my hormones, my metabolism, my overall health, my energy, my mind, my brain. And it's easy to follow because I don't have to count calories. I don't have to weigh my food. I don't have to restrict complete food groups. It's all balanced." ~ Funk Roberts

    In This Episode:

    Addressing the harmful diets for men over 40Understanding hormonal changes and metabolism in midlifeWhat most fitness trainers DON'T understandThe consequences of unhealthy dieting habitsBalanced meal planning for men over 40What nutrition for men over 40 should actually involve

    10 Vital Energy-Boosting Nutrition Tips for Men Over 40

    10 Vital Energy-Boosting Nutrition Tips for Men Over 40

    As men over 40, it can feel like our energy is constantly being sapped throughout the day. But there are simple changes we can make to feel more energized.

    Increasing or boosting your energy levels through the day by drinking an energy drink or getting a candy bar is not working. You know it's not working, but you may not know how to change it.
    What if I tell you that you can be energized during the most strenuous days of your life by choosing the right foods in the correct order?

    In today's episode, I share my top 10 tips and strategies for improving and sustaining your energy levels through nutrition.

    I start by discussing the importance of balanced plate meals at your three daily meals.
    Then, I dive into the top 10 tips. First up - energize your mornings with a filling breakfast. Next, stay hydrated by drinking a gallon of water daily.

    I also cover the best exercise strategies and the surprising benefits of sleep management.
    When you start implementing these strategies, you will immediately see and feel the difference in your energy levels. Thanks for listening!

    “Nutrition is going to provide us with a pivotal role in boosting our metabolism throughout the day, which is going to give us more energy, helping us increase and sustain our energy throughout the day, while obviously optimizing our hormones or testosterone or thyroid, you know, our fat loss or health issues that we may be dealing with.”

    —Funk Roberts

    The Importance Of Human Growth Hormones With Dustin Baker

    The Importance Of Human Growth Hormones With Dustin Baker

    I’m always talking about cortisol and testosterone. But there’s one hormone that doesn’t get enough love from me. This is human growth hormone.

    According to Dustin Baker, today’s guest, human growth hormone is the body's master hormone for both men and women.

    HGH is responsible for many metabolic functions, and it declines naturally with age, starting after puberty, leading to issues like loss of muscle mass and quality.

    Fortunately, some natural and synthetic ways can help you increase your HGH levels, and Dustin explains them all.

    In this episode, Dustin shares his origin story of falling in love with health and fitness in his early 20s and the journey that led him to acquire BioProtein Tech and create their flagship product, Bio Pro Plus.

    We get into the stigma around HGH treatments and why they've earned a bad reputation. Dustin explains how peptides came as a replacement but are now facing regulation. This is where Bio Pro Plus comes in as a natural alternative.

    Dustin answers questions about potential benefits for both men and women, including joint health, fat loss, muscle growth, recovery, and more.

    If you want to learn how to age better, boost your performance in the gym, and feel your best, this episode is the way to go.

    “My own personal tip [to increase HGH naturally]? Invest in some sort of tracking system and some sort of professional to tell you what to do, get a good schedule together, and just execute it. Don’t make it hard.”


    —Dustin Baker


    In This Episode:

    What is Human Growth Hormone?The connection between sarcopenia and HGHWhat is insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), and why is it relevant?The #1 natural strategy for increasing your levels of HGHThe history of HGH synthetic treatmentsHow can you find the right HGH treatment for you

    Optimizing Your Immune System With Dr. Cori Stern

    Optimizing Your Immune System With Dr. Cori Stern

    You may think that you will stop feeling stress once you retire or change your job or the kids go live by themselves. Hate to break it to you, but stress just won't disappear.
    The secret is that you don't have to let it wreck your peace of mind.

    Sure, meditation, hiking, and sunlight are great stress-busters. However, there's a game-changer that often gets overlooked: nutrition.

    Today's guest will speak about the right nutrition to fortify the body so we can have a strong immune system to fight stressors.

    Dr. Cori Stern has been on a mission since 2001 to help people reclaim their health naturally.

    Her journey started in a childhood characterized by a poor diet, chronic infections, and endless antibiotics. At 15, she took matters into her own hands, delving into the mysteries of the gut-brain connection and the impact of diet on well-being.

    At 37, she emerged as a chiropractor, helping people globally overcome health challenges and advocating for their well-being.

    Dr. Stern is here to guide us, unveiling the power of eating the proper foods to fortify our bodies, bolster our immune systems, and face stressors.
    Today isn't about blame. It's about taking that first step toward a healthier, stress-resistant you. Tune in and discover where your journey to well-being begins. Let's do this.


    “Nutrition, as I have discovered, is the basis of health. So many chiropractors like myself have found that if people are not eating properly, if they have nutritional deficiencies or imbalances, all the chiropractic in the world doesn’t fix them.”
    —Dr. Cori Stern
