Have you ever felt like you are doing all the things and still feel stuck? If so, this episode is for you.
On this episode of the Optimized Life podcast, we are joined by world renowned Psycho-Nutritionist and award-winning product formulator of nutraceuticals, Dr. Shawn Talbott.
Listen in as we dive into all thing gut-brain axis and how it impacts weight loss and happiness.
In addition to being the Chief Science Officer at Amare Global, the mental wellness company, he is the author of 14 books, including the new book - Mental Fitness: Maximizing Mood, Motivation, & Mental Wellness by Optimizing the Brain-Body-Biome.
What I appreciate most about Dr. Shawn is the functional approach he takes to health by combining physiology, biochemistry, and psychology to help people improve their mental wellness and physical performance.
His ability to take complex scientific topics and break them down in a way that’s fun, digestible and actionable is one of his greatest gifts.
