Show Notes

Are you doing all the right stuff and not seeing progress in your health journey? Do you gain weight, instead of losing it, when you exercise? Did you know that your genes in your DNA may be sabotaging you?

Today's episode is all about epigenetics! 

Dr. Tabatha has a really cool discussion with Dr. Sam Shay about how your genes influence how you should eat, exercise, sleep, and live your life. Figuring out what your gene expression looks like, may end that frustration and confusion you have about how to reclaim your health! 

For over 20 years, Sam devoted his life to health and science, learning how to heal himself by cross-training across multiple health disciplines and functional medicine, now using the same principles with his online clients.

Sam’s health journey began as a boy, learning to overcome a decade-plus of severe insomnia, gut problems, an inflammatory diet, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and two addictions (video games and sugar).

Sam dedicated his life to alleviate physical, biochemical, and emotional suffering and help others reach the highest human potential and creativity. He crossed-trained extensively, including a doctorate in chiropractic, degrees, and certifications in acupuncture, functional neurology, genetics analysis, and functional medicine.

Dr. Sam uses advanced functional lab testing and integrative coaching to collaborate with you to help you achieve your health, wellness, longevity, and high-performance goals.
