If you’ve been listening to this show for a while, you know that Dan has never been Mr. Health and Wellness. But when he hit 40 years old, he just started not feeling as good. His body didn’t bounce back as quickly, and his joints were aching. So Dan decided to start a journey to change the way he eats. Really, to change his entire lifestyle.
Now he's a few months in, and he wants to share the results, along with the people who've inspired him: Jolenta Gold, Ian Bryan, and Jenny Miller.
When Dan started his health and wellness journey a few months ago, the first thing he did was just reach out to friends, to find out what resources they use. One name kept coming up over and over again: Jolenta Gold. A Manhattan-raised health and wellness blogger, Jolenta is a public speaker, influencer, and guide through the world of healthy cleanses.
Ian Bryan is the celebrated founder of SMUn, a proprietary smoothie line that is revolutionizing the consistency of smoothies on the global market. An ultramarathon runner himself, Ian has changed the way performance athletes metabolize foods. He combines the research of NASA scientists with support from Silicon Valley. Ian shares his tips with Dan.
Jenny Miller is a yoga teacher and certified master herbalist in LA. You may have heard of echinacea, ginseng, and ginko biloba. No one used these herbs before Jenny discovered them. This week, Jenny and Dan talk kichurri, ashwaganda, and the benefits of a specialized form of advanced baby yoga.
