In episode 6 of the Anti-Aging Podcast I bring you in live to an interview I did at the Ancestral Health Symposium, a health summit where dozens of industry leading doctors, trainers, and specialists give presentations on optimizing your health. This is where I met and interviewed this episode’s guest, Dr. Jen Myers.
Dr. Jen specializes in Nutrigenetics and Natural Medicine. She has a practice where she tests her client’s genes, and from those unique genes and gene variations, creates optimized nutritional and supplementation guidance to help optimize their health. Really cutting edge healthy living here!
Dr. Jen has also formulated nutritional supplements for consumer health companies, like Sun Warrior, and has a vast understanding of the biochemical process to which nutrition effects our body and possible genetic variants.
Her board certifications include: Biomedicine, Functional Medicine, Oriental Medicine, and Acupuncture. She is also certified in Genomics, Nutrigenomics, Clinical Nutrition, and advanced DNA analysis and interpretation.
Some highlights from the episode:
Why Good Nutrition is Not Enough: How individual genetics, food processing, less nutrient dense soil, and so many other factors go into the nutrition of your food and what your body is actually able to absorb and use. Dr. Jen gives an example of B vitamin absorption.
Being Raw Vegan for a Month: What changes did Dr. Jen see in her body and blood work? What kind of Vitamin B-12 should vegans be taking and why?
Intermittent Fasting: Different eating windows, health benefits, and more.
Why 23andMe is Not Enough: Especially if you want to optimize your body’s health and biochemistry, not just look at your risk for some common diseases.
Environmental Toxins: How they effect your genetics, and how to optimize your drinking water, the chemical environment around you, and air quality to help minimize that damage.
If you live in the Saint George, UT area, visit Dr. Jen at her health clinic and get on your path to start truly optimizing your health!
