    EPI 54: How To Get The Benefits Of Fasting Without Starving Yourself. Dr. Joseph Antoun Discusses The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet

    EPI 54: How To Get The Benefits Of Fasting Without Starving Yourself. Dr. Joseph Antoun Discusses The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet

    Despite its recent surge in popularity, fasting is a practice that dates back centuries and plays a central role in many cultures and religions. Many assume that fasting is a healthy activity. In some cases, this may be true, but fasting can also be deadly. Ironically, we don’t have to forego healthy food to reap the benefits.
     
    Today, Dr. Joseph Antoun, the CEO of L-Nutra, talks about the benefits of fasting and how you can fast without starving yourself. He also talks about his company’s products and how they can help you lose weight, become healthier, and live longer without depriving yourself.
     
    Joseph Antoun, MD, Ph.D.'s passion is to enhance human longevity by nurturing a true healthcare system alongside the current sick care system.
     
    Dr. Antoun is the CEO and Chairman of the Board of L-Nutra, a unique Nutri-tech company leading the Food as Medicine movement by applying cutting edge Science to Nutrition research first to uncover what humans should eat to live healthier, longer and second to help patients achieve better health outcomes. Dr. Antoun served as the Chairman of the Board at the Global Healthspan Policy Institute (GHPI) and as a member of the Forbes Business Development Council.
     
    Dr. Antoun has dedicated his professional experience to reforming health systems towards preventive care, creating a market for healthy aging by launching the first aging and longevity product called ProLon, and bringing back fasting as a longevity practice to humanity. In 2016, Dr. Antoun launched the Fasting Market, which by 2018 became the #1 nutrition regimen in the US, and continues to grow in popularity. In 2018, the Fasting Mimicking Diet was granted a patent for 'promoting longevity and healthspan.’
     
    Dr. Antoun completed his Health Policy studies at Harvard University, Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, Medicine and Biological Sciences at Saint Joseph University, and his Ph.D. studies in Mediterranean & Middle Eastern Studies at King's College. He is married to the loveliest Carine, has three amazing boys, and stays healthy by practicing time-restricted eating, periodic fasting, and walking daily while on his phone.

    Habits are the foundation of our everyday lives. We build our daily practices, and eventually, our habits and routines shape us. We either build good habits that support us as we move toward our goals or bad ones that undermine our ability to achieve and succeed. One thing is certain: it will be challenging to reach your dreams if you live with many bad habits and beliefs.
     
    In this episode, John O’Connor, an Executive Coach, Speaker, and Author, joins me as we talk about living an extraordinary life and having the best physical health by uncovering the internal factors that are holding you back from living your authentic self.

    EPI 52: Dr. Al Danenberg On The Dangers Of Mercury Tooth Fillings and X-Rays. Plus How He's Survived Cancer When His Doctor Said He Had 3 Months To Live

    EPI 52: Dr. Al Danenberg On The Dangers Of Mercury Tooth Fillings and X-Rays. Plus How He's Survived Cancer When His Doctor Said He Had 3 Months To Live

    We all know that "disease" is something that happens to us outside our control. The disease is an outsider that invades our bodies, and we are helpless to resist. Excellent health, the opposite of disease, is viewed as a blessing bestowed only on a select few. It is precisely this viewpoint that sometimes keeps us from experiencing the optimal level of health.
     
    Today, I am joined by Dr. Al Danenberg as he shares his inspirational health journey of fighting and surviving cancer after being told he only had three months to live. We also talk about the dangers of mercury tooth fillings and X-rays.
     
    Dr. Al, as his patients call him, has been a periodontist for over four decades, during which time he developed an unprecedented approach to gum disease based on evolutionary nutrition.
     
    He also has advanced training in evolutionary nutrition from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as The Center for Mind-Body Medicine, is a certified functional medicine practitioner by way of Functional Medicine University, and is a Primal Health Coach.
     
    In April 2020, Dr. Al was appointed the Chair of the Periodontal Committee for the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM) and several months later was appointed as a Member of the Scientific Advisory Board for Immunity at Daivam Wellness Center in India.

    EPI 51: DNA Testing Uncovered. How To Personalize Your Health & Supplements Based On Real Genetic Data From Your Own Saliva With Joe Cohen

    EPI 51: DNA Testing Uncovered. How To Personalize Your Health & Supplements Based On Real Genetic Data From Your Own Saliva With Joe Cohen

    When a great idea is born out of frustration, you best believe that it will result in an amazing company. One that is passionate about helping people get ahold of information to improve their health and life. If you are interested in learning about your health and body, this will be a fascinating discussion for you. Joe and I talked about how he founded his companies and how the data from DNA testing can help improve your life significantly.
     
    Joe Cohen won the genetic lottery of bad genes. As a kid, he suffered from inflammation, brain fog, fatigue, digestive problems, anxiety, depression, and other poorly understood issues in conventional and alternative medicine. Frustrated by the lack of good information and tools, Joe decided to embark on a journey of self-experimentation and self-learning to improve his health—something that has since become known as “biohacking.”
     
    Joe has studied health sciences for 17 years and has read over 30,000 PubMed articles. He's given consultations to over 1000 people who have sought his health advice. After completing the pre-med requirements at university, he founded SelfHacked because he wanted to make a big impact in improving global health. He also founded SelfDecode and LabTestAnalyzer, popular genetic and lab software tools to improve health.
     
    Now, Joe regularly speaks at events alongside the world’s top health experts and continues to work on enhancing his company’s products to provide people with access to cutting-edge tools and information designed to optimize health.

I'm really excited for this podcast to grow. Great content and very enjoyable to listen to. I've been using these supplements for a while now and it has made nutrition a lot easier for me. I'm a busy, active guy. Always looking for ways to keep great energy, but not trying to obsess over my nutrition.
