IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...
… Dave talks with Michael Ford about low thyroid function, autoimmunity and aging concerns.
At 70, Michael has been biohacking for over three years, takes a consistent supplement regimen, incorporates intermittent fasting, and does frequent microbiome and blood checks.
He takes only one medication for low thyroid function and is looking for alternative ways to manage it. He suspects he has an autoimmunity issue and would like to explore that more.
In the past few years, Michael has seen the health of colleagues, friends and elderly family members decline considerably. He’s concerned about aging and wants direction on how to live to be fully functional at 140 (or more!). With so much health information available to the general public–much of it contradictory, Michael asks Dave for insight and input.
In this “Interventions With Dave” episode, Dave also talks with Michael about:
- Cortisol-causing excess weight
- Visceral fat
- Healthy fats
- Red light benefits
- Dental health
- Breathing & mouth taping
- Improving brain blood flow
They look at his health concerns through a new lens and discuss actionable next steps. Don’t miss the “Links & Resources” section below for specific information.
