If you weren’t paying attention to your health before the last few years, you are now. Question is, what should we actually be paying attention to? And, are there major things, early or even real-time indicators that could tell us how our day-to-day choices are affecting everything from our energy to level of pain, inflammation, fatigue, mental health and risk of chronic illness or life-altering disease, but that most of us are missing?
These are the questions I pose to today’s guest, Dr. Casey Means, as we explore the world of metabolic and mitochondrial health and how technology is now becoming available on more of a mass scale that can help us reclaim control over so many aspects of our immediate and long-term wellbeing. And even guide our behavioral choices, from food to movement to meditation in real-time. And, I also share my own experience running my own, personal experiments with this emerging tech.
Casey is a Stanford-trained physician who’s on a mission to maximize human potential and reverse the epidemic of preventable chronic disease by empowering people with tech-enabled tools that help them make better lifestyle choices. Making a big change, leaving the practice of medicine behind, and we talk about why she made this choice in some detail, she’s now the Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder of metabolic health company Levels and Associate Editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention. Her perspective and insights have been recently featured in the New York Times, Men’s Health, Forbes, and more.
In our conversation, we dive into a series of fascinating insights about metabolic health and its impact on everything from our overall health and energy levels to potentially life-altering or even life-ending conditions, and how science and tech are beginning to change the game and give people more power in making better decisions before we, unwittingly, head down the road to declining wellbeing.
