We sat down with Dan Garner last weekend at the S.W.I.S conference to talk health optimization from a performance standpoint. Often we find that the largest hinderance to improvement particularly in trained athletes is underlying health conditions. In this episode Dan walks us through his though process when analyzing anyone from your average Joe to world class athletes. We discuss food sensitivities, gut health, digestion, underlying pathogens and of course finding your optimal ranges.
A huge part of optimizing your health is making sure your body is fueled with all of the micro and phytonutrients that it needs. That is why we have partnered with Organifi to give you 20% off everything in the Organifi store. Just use the code MuscleIntelligence.
