Did you know that your tongue position can affect how you sleep?

Or that how much light you’re exposed to — not just the glowing blue light emitted from your favorite devices — can significantly affect your health?

While most of our Keto Answers Podcast episodes are centered around one specific topic, this one is similar to our Q&A style where we cover several at once.

But, unlike with the Q&A’s, instead of diving into questions from our listeners, my guest, Mike Mutzel, shares his five pillars of health and how to optimize each one.

We also chat about how blue light affects your health, especially in children, how to stay healthy while traveling, and backyard farming.

The way that children’s eyes are shaped makes them more uniquely susceptible to evening light and blue light. Click To Tweet

If you don’t know, Mike holds a master’s degree in nutrition, he graduated as a functional medicine practitioner, and he wrote the book Belly Fat Effect.

When Mike is not outdoors with his wife and daughter, you can usually find him on Instagram or YouTube sharing his latest research to his 279k+ followers.

However, by tuning into this episode now, you won’t have to slip down the rabbit hole of social media to find his best tips.

He’s sharing those and a sneak peek into the exact steps he takes, both personally and with his family, to achieve an optimal level of health.
