Podcast #1-Introduction and what we’ll cover


Hey folks, see that little audio bar above?  CLICK IT!  In an attempt to get you more information in multiple formats, I’m going to begin doing little 20-30 minute podcasts/audioblogs covering some of the topics that I think are really important for gut health.  I realize that some people just don’t have the energy or focus to make it through a 3000 word blog posts, and I think this is a solid workaround, one that I use quite often on walks or while in the car.  These podcasts will center around how we can use lifestyle to optimize gut health with a focus on being brief and not overly science-y.

This brings me to an exciting announcement I have to make.  At this point, I think there is more than enough data to lay down a lifestyle protocol to prevent leaky gut.  I hope to have this completed by the end of the year, but I’m still hammering out the details on how I’m going to release it. Right now the plan is to release it as a part of my Circadian Retraining Program because a lot of that information overlaps, and I won’t have to re-cover all of the information I’ve already covered in past modules.

Regardless, anyone who is a member of the program by the time I announce and release it will get it as part of the Circadian Retraining Program when it’s completed.  After that, I may release it separately, or simply increase the price of the Circadian Retraining Program and make it a module there.  For those of you already in the program, be on the lookout for some private blogs coming your way in the next couple of weeks so that I can get the information to you sooner.

Normally there will be show notes, but for the first one I’m simply going to introduce myself and discuss some of the topics I’ll be covering.  Here is a rough outline of the podcast, and feel free to let me know how you like this format in the comments section below or on Facebook.
