In this episode, we cover some of the prevailing myths regarding losing body fat and then present what we found in our data analysis covering each myth.Nimbus Healthcare (https://nimbushealthcare.com):https://nimbushealthcare.comLifestyle Medicine (https://theghwellness.teachable.com/p/5pillarsbundle):https://theghwellness.teachable.com/p/5pillarsbundle

    Episode 102 - I Got It Wrong

    I want to apologize to all of my listeners. Some things were mentioned on the podcast that I did not vet properly. I also incorporated some of my own bias and agenda into the podcast's early episodes, which resulted in information being presented that was not scientifically accurate. This episode is my apology, where I dive into some of the issues I know I got wrong on previous podcast episodes. Thank you for your continued support, and God Bless.Nimbus Healthcare (https://nimbushealthcare.com):https://nimbushealthcare.comCBD Health Collection (https://cbdhealthcollection.com/?ref=gq64jy133u):https://cbdhealthcollection.com/?ref=gq64jy133u

    Episode 101 - BNDF: How To Teach An Old Dog New Tricks

    Strive for Great Health Podcast Episode 101 - BDNF: How To Teach An Old Dog New TricksBrain health fascinates me. I was raised in a house full of mental illness and saw two grandparents pass away from neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer's and Parkinson's). Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is one of the critical regulators of brain health by controlling neuroplasticity. Our brain can adapt to our ever-changing environment and has a remarkable ability to heal when placed in the right situation. Episode 101 dives into BDNF and leaves you with actionable tips to enhance your brain health.Nimbus Healthcare (https://nimbushealthcare.com):https://nimbushealthcare.comCBD Health Collection (https://cbdhealthcollection.com/?ref=gq64jy133u):https://cbdhealthcollection.com/?ref=gq64jy133u

    Episode 100 - Bone Health: A Matter Of Life & Death

    The title of this podcast sounds like an exaggeration and a marketing ploy to get you to listen to this episode. I assure you it is not. Let's say you are a 65-year-old standard American female or male with three medical conditions and had a hip fracture. You have a 30 to 40% chance of being dead one year from that fracture. Astronomical; how come nobody is talking about this? Luckily, we have your back and will break down everything you need to know about your bones and how to optimize bone health for healthy aging.Nimbus Healthcare (https://nimbushealthcare.com):https://nimbushealthcare.comCBD Health Collection (https://cbdhealthcollection.com/?ref=gq64jy133u):https://cbdhealthcollection.com/?ref=gq64jy133u
