    21) The Mouth is a Window to Our Health with Dr. Gabe Adorjan

    We had an incredible discussion with Dr. Gabe Adorjan, DMD who is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to our airways, sleep, vitamin D, and more. He owns Modern American Dentistry of Woodland Hills, CA where he treats Dr. Gary!
     
    After overcoming some struggles with his own health and sleep, Dr. Gabe began to see the mouth as a window into our overall health. This drives a lot of his work since our dental health often reflects the quality of our nutrition and lifestyle habits.
     
    We discuss:
    His background Chronic inflammation & dental health Vitamin D & metabolic syndrome Vitamin B & sleep The problem with sunscreen Vitamin K & calcium The importance of magnesium Sleep apnea

Diet & Lifestyle

I attended the ADAPT conference in Long Beach March 2020 where both Dr Greg and Brian Sanders spoke. Myself being on a journey of nutritional health and turning my life around as a 59 year old male I could not wait to listen to their podcast. Was not disappointed, they have views that I thought only I struggled with in todays marketing of fake healthy food. Be it Keto or just living a lifestyle healthy for yourself and the environment these guys seem to be legit and have a message that needs to get out there. Looking forward to getting up to date on their podcast.
Thank you for sharing your message

I had 13 hours of driving to do the last few days and listened to all of your podcast!! Right on point what Americans and doctors need to learn and understand. We have been living your SAPIEN lifestyle since we went organic 20 years ago and learned about Weston A. Price. Thank you and keep it up!
