This week’s podcast guest, Dr. Greg Kelly, has one of the most impressive backgrounds and he’s trained under some of the best teachers out there.

Dr. Kelly has written and published numerous articles on natural medicine and nutrition, he has more than 30 journal articles indexed on PubMed, and he’s contributed to three chapters in the Textbook of Natural Medicine.

On top of that, he’s a naturopathic physician (N.D.), the author of the book Shape Shift, and he’s the past editor of the Alternative Medicine Review.

He’s also been an  instructor at the University of Bridgeport in the College of Naturopathic Medicine and he’s now the current lead product formulator at Neurohacker Collective.

To say he’s very accomplished would be an understatement.

That’s why I couldn’t wait to get Dr. Kelly on the show to share his incredible knowledge and insights with you.

In this episode, Dr. Kelly and I dive into a number of different topics ranging from key health markers, mental models, optimizing brain health, promoting anti-aging in a healthy manner, and so much more.
