Eoin is a world-renowned strength and conditioning athlete. He started managing health clubs in Ireland. He found that the general advice he was giving was not enough so he got his masters degree and started studying Functional medicine; which gave him the ability to better assess and better individualize plans for his clients. He learned more for his clients than from any course he has attended.
Carbohydrate Cycling and Muscle Growth
Mindful Eating for Optimal Digestion
Are stimulated Based Pre-workout Supplements Healthy?
Detoxification for athletes
Exercises for the Severely Overweight
Eating for fitness and muscle

A few weeks ago, I stopped by Dr. Leo Galland’s office in NYC to chat about allergies.
He wrote a new book all about allergies called the Allergy Solution.
I was amazed by the new science and remedies he shared.
Hidden allergies are the drivers of weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, depression, and joint pain, he says.
In the interview, he reveals the top ways to uncover hidden allergies.
The big take-home from this interview and new book, The Allergy Solution, is that our environment has changed.
We talked about new research that shows how environmental toxins may actually be causing plants to produce more allergens.
Even more, environmental compounds may be causing your immune system to be increasingly susceptible to allergens.
So, it’s a vicious cycle.
Dr. Galland says the solution is not to suppress allergies with natural compounds, but to remove the triggers and also the prime protective T-regulatory cells.
T-regulatory cells help keep inflammation in check.
Hear about the top five ways you can give your T-regulatory cells and immune system a boost.
Hope you enjoy this one,

A new study in a reputable medical journal reported that 50% of the adult population has diabetes or prediabetes.
But here’s the real cold water: folks with elevated glucose have a much higher risk of developing blindness, getting their legs ampuation and, worst of all, brain atrophy and dementia.
(Alzheimer’s is now dubbed diabetes of the brain.)
These scary facts motivated diabetes educator, Brian Mowll to host the 3rd annual Diabetes Summit.
Check it out: highintensityhealth.com/diabetes
Dr. Brian and I discussed key nutrients to balance gut hormones and bacteria which can have a huge effect on blood sugar regulation.)
But that’s not all…
Dr. Brian and I recorded a special interview below to discuss a range of topics that can help you balance your blood sugar control right now.
This was by far one of the most practical discussions on getting control over blood sugar that I’ve heard in a long time.
Key Takeaways from Dr. Mowll’s Chat:
05:06 Assessing our Blood Sugar: Why should all have a glucometer and be testing our blood sugar!
09:38 Blood Sugar Thresholds: What are safe post meal blood sugar levels?
16:23 Type 2 Diabetes Subtype: Not all diabetes is the same
23:56 Hemoglobin A1C Biomarker: What’s optimal VS what’s “normal”
22:44 Triglyceride Biomarker: Why this measures metabolic flexibility
48:43 Berberine and Blood Sugar: New science
P.S. When you sign up for the Diabetes Summit, forward me your registration and I’ll give you access to my 60 minute Circadian Rhythm Master Class video.

Laura and I discuss the latest research in medical marijuana science and holistic cannabis use.
The cannabis plant has been bred by farmers to be high in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive component. The plant originally has a much lower THC content. It is a complex plant with many compounds and many cannabinoids that produce different effects. CBD (cannabidiol) modulates the THC effect. Consuming the plant with all of its compounds is beneficial. It does not need to be smoked. It can be as a tincture, as an oil, an alcohol base, in an edible, as a patch, or as a topical.
This is a system of receptors throughout our bodies, called CB1 and CB2 receptors and others. They sit on the cells in our body within various systems. These receptors are in our brain, our gut, our immune system and other places. There are zero deaths from cannabis overdose because we do not have these receptors in our brainstem. You may react to an overdose in some other way, depending upon your genetics.

We caught up with Dr. Loren Cordain, founder of the modern-day Paleo Diet movement. Loren and I met at his office in Fort Collins, CO, back in ’06 and have traveled in similar circles over the years.
It was great to catch up and review time-tested dietary advice and discuss new findings. Loren was actually eating lunch while we recorded this chat.
We discuss a wide range of topics that you may enjoy, including:
04:42 Meat consumption and heart disease
12:39 Why antinutrients are compared to a Trojan horse
14:09 The dairy paradox
24:56 Carbohydrate diversity and the microbiome (new data)
40:22 The safety of antioxidant supplements?
