In this episode, I interview my buddy Sal from the hugely popular Mind Pump Podcast, which he hosts with Adam and Justin, and which you should definitely check out.
I wanted Sal to talk about three topics that he’s particularly revved up about recently, and that’s gut health, overcoming systemic fatigue, and using mindful/intuitive eating strategies over more rigid, planning/tracking-based strategies.
Here’s a little sneak peek of what we talk about in today’s interview:
- What “leaky gut” is and how it can affect your body.
- How artificial sweeteners can harm our gut health, and how that can in turn affect many aspects of our health and wellness.
- What “HPA/HPAT Axis Dysfunction” is, why many people are suffering from it, and what you can do to beat it.
- Some of Sal’s favorite mindfulness practices.
- And more…
