Do you trust the mainstream conception of “healthy”?

 
Today we are proud to host Brian Sanders, health coach, filmmaker and Co-Founder of the health, media and technology company Sapien. Sapien’s mission is to provide information and services to promote healthy living. They are fighting the good fight against the modern norms that lead to chronic disease, weight gain, and poor health. Through education and tools they are helping people to eat better, live better, and thrive instead of just survive. Additionally, Brian is the host of the Peak Human Podcast, which is less of a podcast, and more of a free audio lecture series with world-renowned doctors, scientists, and researchers.
