Time to found out the truth about the hidden health risks inside the body of a personal trainer and nutritionist! In this September 30, 2009 free audio episode, I discover the results of my blood, urine and saliva testing for ferritin, vitamin D, essential amino acids, blood pH, testosterone:cortisol ratios, magnesium and calcium breakdown, as well as the outcome of the metabolic typing questionnaire – all tests performed by a company called “Bioletics”.
The reason I chose to have these tests performed by Bioletics, which is operated by physician Dr. Richard Cohen and pro triathlete/health adviser Tim Monaco, is because it actually allows people to test for all these variables from the comfort of their own home. I didn't have to get shuttled between six different doctors, labs, and clinics. I did this all in my kitchen.
So who needs to listen to this episode?
-The serious athlete, recreational sport enthusiastic or weekend warrior who wants to truly optimize their performance, health and recovery…
-The aging individual who wants crucial information that will allow for lasting and vibrant youth…
-The person who wants a scientific solution to weight gain, low energy levels, chronic fatigue or frequent illness…
-Anyone who really, truly cares about what is going on inside their bodies, and how they can optimize their health…
It is highly recommended that as a supplement to today's podcast, you also listen to Podcast Episode #53 if you haven't already, because during today's podcast, Dr. Richard Cohen and Tim Monaco present to me a comprehensive breakdown of each test for the six crucial internal performance factors we discussed in Podcast Episode #53 , speaking in detail about what each test means, and how I personally fared.
Chances are, if you exercise frequently, then you spend many, many hours trying to get fit, get thin, or get faster. Taking this concept to the next level, if you are a triathlete (as many listeners to this show actually are) then you spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on gear and countless hours training every week. But either way, you probably don't know the answers to the following questions:
-Are your levels of Vitamin D optimal?
-Are your iron stores adequate?
-Are your mineral levels balanced?
-Is your hormonal recovery system strong?
-Do you know your essential amino acid status?
-Do the food you eat provide your body with the fuel it really needs?
-Are you a “fast oxidizer” or “slow oxidizer”?
After listening to this podcast, you'll not only know exactly what to do and exactly how to get tested from the comfort of your own home through Bioletics, but you'll also see just how healthy, or unhealthy, a personal trainer, nutritionist and triathlete can actually be.
