282: An Electric Approach to Fitness, Rehabilitation, and Brain Health With NeuFit

Today’s fascinating guest is Garrett Salpeter, dubbed a “health engineer” by many. He invented a patented device that makes the benefits of neuro bioelectric stimulation more accessible to everyone. His system for improving the body (starting with the brain) is called NeuFit (think “neurological fitness”). This device and his program hashelped people in chronic pain or injury, or those who simply want to improve overall performance. He works with people in almost all situations, including those in wheelchairs, athletes in all of the major sports, the Olympics, and much more, to help people get out of pain, improve performance, and sometimes avoid surgery. I first met Garrett in Austin, and since I’m geek for new technologies and learning more about the body and how it works, we couldn’t stop talking! I also had the chance to try the NeuFit. I’m delighted to share him and all of his knowledge with you today… see the resources below for how to find this technology in an offic...

277: Breast Implant Illness: What It Is & How to Heal With Diane Kazer

Today we are covering a much-requested topic: breast implants and how they might affect health. I am here with Diane Kazer, a pro soccer player turned functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner. Many credit her as a visionary and a gamechanger in the world of women’s hormones, detox, empowerment, and leadership. Diane started the CHI Hormone Warrior Transformation Tribe as well as the TITS method, a holistic approach to healing from breast implant illness, which she experienced firsthand. We’re going to go deep on that today in particular since I have gotten so many questions from women struggling with it. I think it’s important to say before we get started: The goal here is to inform, not to pass judgment on motherhood or anything related to body image. We all have our own choices to make but I firmly believe education is the place to start! Episode Highlights With Diane Kazer The surprising percentage of women who will have breast implants within their lifetime Why breast imp...

276: What You Need to Know About Olive Oil With Tony Kasandrinos

I am here today with someone I am so impressed with on many levels, especially his time management and everything he accomplishes. I thought I was busy, but I don’t hold a candle to Tony Kasandrinos, the co-founder of Kasandrinos Olive Oil. You’ve probably heard me sing the praises of this olive oil on the blog and seen me cook with it on Instagram. It’s one of my favorite staples in the kitchen! I think you’ll love the story behind this family-owned company as well. Tony is a native of New York, but he spent a good portion of his childhood in his father’s village in Greece. And at the age of 17, he joined the Marine Corps, and he has been serving on active duty since then (thank you Tony!). It’s an honor to chat with him today about his favorite topic, olive oil, and his second favorite topic, ways to spend more quality time with family. Episode Highlights With Tony Kasandrinos What Tony has learned about health and life from his time in Greece How the typical diet in Mediter...
