angela barrus dirobi health show 109 image

So, funny story. I’m a huge health geek and I love treating my own health as a science experiment. And I find that when I’m measuring and keeping track, I have more motivation to improve. If the scale says I gained a few pounds, I want to lose them. If I measure my biceps and find they are skinnier than other guys wrists, I want to gain some muscle. You get the idea.

So I was preparing this content about the 5 most critical health measurements, and I called my sister Angela for advice.

I compared them all to each other, and compared which foods appeared the most, and which were most consistently at the top.

I then made a list of the top 25 foods, and what I discovered is that many of the lists disagreed and contradicted each other, but without fail two foods topped the list… always.

doctors dont' like natural dietary supplements

Natural Dietary Supplements… Godsend or snake oil?

We often see statements like, “My doctors says I don’t need supplements,” or “Just eat a healthy diet and you’ll get all the vitamins and minerals you need!”

And while these sentiments are well meaning, they aren’t backed up by science. Every time I see these statements, I ask the people if they are willing to share the results of the test showing that they don’t have any vitamin or mineral deficiencies. And every time the answer is predictable… they didn’t get tested and have no evidence that they don’t have deficiencies.
