Key Highlights

  • What does it mean to know your baseline? Why is it important to know your baselines and health markers? So many of us don’t know our own health markers, but if we do, we’ll be better able to sustain our health and prevent disease. Tune in to hear Julie describe this in more detail.
  • What is the different between functional, traditional, and precision medicine? Julie breaks these down for us and explains why you should consider leaning into functional and precision medicine more.
  • Julie speaks on the importance of having a relationship with your doctor as well as the best ways to advocate for yourself and strengthen your patient/provider relationship. She also talks about how to present your health concerns to your doctor to ensure they really hear you.
  • Chase describes how Wild Health helped him discover his predisposition for cardiovascular disease and the subsequent choices he made to improve his baselines and prevent the disease.
  • Julie details why she worked with a mindset coach as a CrossFit competitor and how mindset shifts can significantly improve your physiological health. 
  • The external is not always an accurate representation of the internal, meaning you can look healthy on the outside while being very unhealthy on the inside. Listen in as Julie reflects on the unhealthiest, most stressful time in her life: when she entered med school as a top tier CrossFit athlete.
