This episode is brought to you by Levels and LMNT.

Dr. Casey Means, MD is back to share her perspective of thinking of ourselves as a parent to our 37 trillion cells, caring for them and providing them with what they need to create happiness, energy, and creativity. We unpack how mitochondrial health is key to having a strong life force and how you can live for your mitochondria health every day.

We cover food, movement, stress management, environmental toxins, and circadian rhythm as levers to support your cellular health. We also talk about metabolic dysfunction and weight loss, addressing the potential risks of quick-fix weight loss options like Ozempic, and the importance of muscle in reducing inflammation and processing glucose. Finally, we examine the impact of psychological health, fear, loneliness, and exercise on metabolic health.
