Questions Covered During This Call
Q1: With toxicity and poor food supply at an all-time high, what are your thoughts on the role of detoxification in health? In particular, any thoughts on heavy metals and their impact on the brain?
Q2: My daughter is overweight. Any suggestions on helping her care about her food, exercise, etc?
Q3: What are your thoughts on a heterozygous APEO4 gene mutation and risk for Alzheimer’s? I’ve read some work that this is a relatively new gene mutation (relative to APEO3) that might actually be neuro-protective in metabolically healthy populations.
Q4: How are you using a ketogenic/high-fat diet/ omega 3 in TBI recovery?
Q5: I am big into fitness but as I age (currently 38), where should I be spending my focus for overall body health? (Yoga/Lifting/HIIT/Mobility)
Q6: I’m about to get my annual physical. What key tests should I ask for that will help me make healthier decisions?
Q7: I would love to have a conversation about how to deal with pain and what Dr. Al thinks about certain spinal surgeries. I’m scheduled for one on the 26th.
Q8: Which health things take the highest priority? All the hacks may get you incremental increases from 80%-99%, but what are the things that get you most of the way there? What are the non-negotiables that we should all just DO?

BIO: I love doing awesome things with incredible people in amazing locations. I help business owners and entrepreneurs modify their lifestyles to create fitter bodies, stronger focus, and better businesses using fitness and nutrition as a force multiplier in their lives.
It’s easy to put so much focus on building a business and generating revenue that you forget to take care of your health. But what many entrepreneurs don’t realize is that being fit and healthy is one of the best things you can do for your bottom line.
I work with personal clients and groups as a fitness trainer, nutrition coach, and lifestyle consultant to help you get fit without having to fit yourself into an impossible program or diet.
