Redefining Healthcare With Dr. Tiffany Lester
Is our country's obsession with health actually making us healthier? Even before COVID-19 hit, health and wellness in modern America was big business, and a growing feature of our social media feeds. However, is our society focused on the right aspects of health or are we viewing it in a healthy way? This week we're getting a refreshingly holistic take on the world of health. Dr. Tiffany Lester is here to shed some light on this complex and often misunderstood field, including:  * Why it's a mistake to see healthcare as a debate between traditional medicine and functional medicine, and how they really can help inform each other.  * Why properly managing sleep and stress needs to be a bigger focus for most Americans.  * What all the fuss about gut health is really about and why we all should nourish our microbiome.  * Why it can be risky to take trendy supplements like Ashwagandha, magnesium, or fish oil without understanding them properly first.  In a year defined by one of the biggest health crises of the modern era, this episode has eye-opening perspectives and practical advice for all of us to live healthier, happier lives.  *Episode Show Notes:* * Learn more about Tiffany on her Instagram page and her home base on Parsley Health.  * Season 2 of the podcast The Dream is all about the wellness industry.  * TIffany recommended using Google Scholar and PubMed for legitimate health and nutrition studies.  * Tiffany says that higher-priced fish oils are often higher quality.  * Tiffany's go-to karaoke song is anything by Whitney Houston.

Your Truth is BS - Part 2
In the eye-opening conclusion to last week's conversation about authenticity and speaking your truth - Gary's taking the nation straight to the heart of how your complaints bastardize the truth and take you from "being authentic" to "being an @$$hole." But that's just the beginning! Gary's going up against a lightning round of questions to show what authenticity is all about before capping things off with one HUGE question from the nation. It's another electrifying episode you won't want to miss, but if you need more reason to tune in right now, here's what Gary's unpacking this week: * What personal development practices or ideologies do you consider BS? * Are there any other books that you recommend checking out before cracking into Unfu*k Yourself, Stop Doing that Sh*t, or Wise as Fu*k? * Where are you finding hope during these challenging times? * What's the line that separates living as your authentic self from egotistical living?  All that and more on this episode of Unfuck Nation with Gary John Bishop! Are You Ready to Unfu*k Yourself for Good? * If you want to be the first to know when we drop new episodes, please take a moment to Follow or Subscribe to Unfuck Nation wherever you listen to your favorite Podcasts. * If you have a question for Gary that you'd like featured on an upcoming episode, you can click here to email him directly or leave us a voicemail on the Unfuck Nation Hotline at (646) 450-3203. * If you'd like to show your support for the show, we would greatly appreciate it if you would share the show with a friend or write a review for the show on Apple Podcasts. * For more of Gary's content, you can click here to visit his website or you can connect with him on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.   See for privacy and opt-out information.
