Jeremy Quinby has been an Integrative Health Specialist for nearly 25 years. In 2014 he became involved in numerous projects across the country exploring better care delivery, vetted local health networks, and the development of a health improvement system as an alternative to our current system of managing care. The Highway to Health Podcast was born out of this, an extension to his 20 year career helping individuals and families become healthier in their day to day lives. His intention, which will be more clear after listening, is to broaden the view of what we call health, to educate, and to encourage all of us to build a healthier, more connected world around ourselves.
Jeff Bailey - Avita Yoga: A Moving Meditation
In our fast-paced existence most of us do not allow ourselves to just be present in our bodies, to tune in, listen listen deeply and give it the space it needs to loosen, let go, and heal. Modern yoga methods in the U.S. tend towards achievement, and because of this, limit participation based on physical ability. Jeff Bailey, the founder of Avita yoga has in many ways taken yoga back to the basics blending a more restorative approach to yoga with meditative practice that can be enjoyed by all.

Frank Davis - What's In Your Supplements?
Host Jeremy Quinby has a conversation with Franks Davis, founder and CEO of Optivida. As a child, Frank had every conceivable childhood disease (mumps, measles, pneumonia) and struggled throughout childhood and adolescence with a compromised immune system –leading to a constant battle to stay healthy and enjoy all the sports he loved. In his early 40’s after dealing with hepatitis (twice), mononucleosis (twice), and pneumonia (twice), Frank ended up with chronic fatigue syndrome which incapacitated him.
