1) Finding a Functional Medicine Doctor
A Functional Medicine Doctor is a key part of a healthy, energetic and long life. But, not all Functional Doctor’s are the same. Functional Medicine Docs don’t just treat symptoms, they also treat and focus on the root cause of why you have a dis-ease. There’s different types of Functional Medicine Doctor certifications one can get.
I did extensive research and found that IFM (The Institute for Functional Medicine) has the best certification available. If you’re looking for a Functional Medicine Doc, make sure they are IFM Certified. IFM is out front and on the cutting edge of so many amazing new healing modalities. If you don’t know where to find an IFM Functional Med doc, no worries, they have a “Find a Practitioner” feature on their website.
And, if you want to see the proof about how Functional Medicine is getting amazing results?
A new study hows how a woman, who was suffering for 44 years, applied Functional Medicine in her life and had many symptoms either reversed or improved.
2. Move your body
Part of my daily routine is incorporating movement first thing in the morning. AM Cardio is my jam. And, moving in many different planes, so that I have healthy joints and can speak on stage without injury.
One of the best investments I’ve made in the past year is creating a home gym (for free with saved up Amex Points!).
It saves me time and money by not having to go anywhere and getting my workout done at home.
With Claim Your Power Live coming up i’m focused on getting my body ready for peak physical performance.
I’m loving this new piece of equipment called the Flex Disc. It’s a low-impact, rolling platform that you can workout with. It’s omni-directional. You can do SO many different movements with it.
Your trainer will be impressed.
As you may know, chronic llow-gradeinflammation is the root cause of a lot of chronic illness and problems in our bodies. We’ve got to do what we can to reduce inflammation and help our bodies heal. One of the best natural solutions for reducing inflammation is turmeric or curcumin. Problem is, in order to take advantage of it’s anti-inflammatory properties, you need to heat it up and it can take a long time. But, I’ve found a new solution that doesn’t require that and is up to 27x more bioavailable than most other turmeric products.
I’ve been taking it for the past few weeks and never felt better. I’ve lost 10 pounds (of inflammation, not fat), my joints feel great and I even took this stuff instead of an Advil for a headache and it worked! It’s called Theracurmin HP.
It’s a polyphenol. It has significant anti-inflammatory properties. I’m loving it. (Note: please consult a doctor before starting a new supplement protocol.)
4. Put An End to Conflicting Food Advice & Trust Your Gut
One of the most powerful things you can do to help change your life, to feel better and to get your energy back is make sure you have a healthy gut (also called your microbiome). My new favorite tool is called Viome, you can get $50 off my clicking here.
I’ve lost 10 pounds in two weeks using Viome, and I’ve never felt better. Bloating and a lot of my inflammation is gone. I’ve got more energy… all by changing to eat the exact food I need for my body. I love me some Viome. Everyone’s microbiome is totally unique, so what’ good for me, or your friend or family member may not be good for you.

5. Biohacking Your Nervous System
This week on the Power & Purpose podcast I featured a live talk I did at the Bulletproof Conference in 2017. I talk about the real reason why we biohack, why we set goals and most importantly why unhealed emotional trauma gets in the way of meditation, yoga, prayer, biohacking…essentially any way you are trying to improve yourself.
