Welcome back to Muscle Intelligence, everybody. Today we are so happy to have Dr. Joseph Mercola as our guest! Dr. Mercola is one of the fathers of the modern health optimization movement and has sparked so much of the progressive thought that is going on in the scene today. In this vast conversation, we cover so much, from diet and light to blood flow and EMF’s. Dr. Mercola has so much knowledge on many of these areas and generously shares this wealth with all of us!
