DNA Secrets, Gut Health, and the Hidden Benefits of A Holistic Approach with Dr. Anil Bajnath

What’s the difference between genomics and genetics? How important is it to understand your genes when looking at optimizing your health?

In this episode, Dr. Anil Bajnath and Joe delve into the world of DNA and their impact on our health. Dr. Bajnath breaks down complex health science concepts in a way that’s easy to understand, while sharing his unique approach to healthcare.

Some highlights of the episode include:

✔️ Understanding the difference between genomics (the study of all genes in our body) and genetics (the study of inherited traits).

✔️ The role of transcriptomics (how our genes behave) in understanding health issues like PTSD.

✔️ The impact of our gut health on our overall wellbeing.

✔️The potential dangers of over-reliance on certain medications like statins.

✔️The relevance of understanding lipid dynamics (how fat works in our bodies) for our heart health.

✔️ The value of a holistic approach to healthcare – focusing on treating the whole person, not just symptoms.

People who are serious about their health are a different breed of people. We try weird stuff. We don’t blindly trust what “they” tell us. People usually think we’re a little crazy.


Maybe we are, but we’re also going to live the longest ( #longevity), so eventually us “crazy” biohackers will be the only ones left.
