Jim LaValle: Research your health like it's your next car

Developing a health strategy to navigate the decades ahead can be a daunting task.  In fact, many people focus on their wellbeing only when ill health strikes and an intervention is needed to tackle sickness. Jim LaValle, a California-based clinical pharmacist, health educator and the author of Cracking the Metabolic Code: 9 Keys to Optimal Health, is on a mission to demystify the process.  

The founder of Metabolic Code, a health evaluation program that creates a plan of action for people to live and feel better, Jim is a proponent of precision medicine.  In this LLAMA podcast conversation with Peter Bowes, he explains the process of scrunching health data, making sense of lab tests and interpreting biometric information.  

He discusses the threat posed by inflammation, the importance of gut health and why an understanding of so-called metabolic roadblocks is crucial.  Jim and Peter also share their thoughts on what it really means to "age with grace.'

Recorded: July 21, 2021 | Read a transcript and show notes at the LLAMA podcast website.
