Bonnie Tsui On Why We Swim
Play • 2 hr 20 min

Unlike other land mammals, humans are not natural-born swimmers. Our evolutionary ancestors learned for survival. Now it’s one of the most popular activities in the world. So why do we swim? What is it about water that seduces us despite its dangers?

A lifelong swimmer reared by swimming parents, this week’s guest couldn’t shake this question. What she discovered is far more compelling than you might imagine.

Bonnie Tsui (@bonnietsui) is an alumnus of Harvard University, where she did not swim but instead rowed crew—and graduated magna cum laude in English and American Literature and Language.

In 2009, her book American Chinatown: A People’s History of Five Neighborhoods won the 2009-2010 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature and was a San Francisco Chronicle bestseller and Best of 2009 Notable Bay Area Books selection. She has been the recipient of the Lowell Thomas Gold Award for travel journalism and the Jane Rainie Opel Young Alumna Award at Harvard University. In 2017, she was awarded the 2017 Karola Saekel Craib Excellence in Food Journalism Fellowship by the San Francisco Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier. She is also the recipient of a 2019 National Press Foundation Fellowship.

A frequent contributor to The New York Times and California Sunday magazine, Bonnie’s latest book—and the focus of today’s conversation—is Why We Swim. Propelled by stories of Olympic champions, a Baghdad swim club that meets in Saddam Hussein’s palace pool, modern-day Japanese samurai swimmers, and even an Icelandic fisherman who improbably survives a wintry six-hour swim after a shipwreck, Bonnie dives into the deep, from the chilly San Francisco Bay to the South China Sea, investigating the ancestry and essence of water’s allure.

Widely lauded, Why We Swim was named to TIME magazine’s list of 100 Must-Read Books of 2020. It’s also received praise from The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Los Angeles Times, NPR, Buzzfeed, Bustle, Booklist, Kirkus, and more. Beautifully written and completely immersive, it definitely ranks among my 2020 favorites—I couldn’t put it down.

So let’s talk about it.

This conversation is a love letter to swimming—a sport, lifestyle and obsession that Bonnie and I share.

It’s a deconstruction of humanity’s relationship with the transformative power of water—an archeological dig that unearths mankind’s historic and fraught yet undeniably alluring connection with the sea.

It’s about swimming as a means of survival.

It’s about swimming as a conduit for well-being, competition, and community.

It’s about the unique power of water—when combined with breath—to produce that elusive state called flow.

But underneath it all, this is a conversation about why to be a swimmer is to be a seeker.

The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

It was an absolute delight to share space and passion with a woman who hopes, as Oliver Sacks writes in Water Babies, to “swim till I die.” 

I concur with that idea. This conversation sheds light on why.

Morgan Housel on The Psychology of Money
This week’s conversation is with Morgan Housel, a partner at The Collaborative Fund and a former columnist at The Motley Fool and The Wall Street Journal.  He is a two-time winner of the Best in Business Award from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, winner of the New York Times Sidney Award, and a two-time finalist for the Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism. Morgan recently published a book titled, The Psychology of Money, and it’s the impetus for why I wanted to talk to him. If you’ve listened to this podcast for a while, you know I live by this stance: having a philosophy for your life is imperative... What I hope you take from this conversation is that the same can be said for how you think about money. There isn’t simply one "right" way to manage your money, but it should align with the greater values you live by. At one point in our conversation, Morgan shares that he doesn’t have a mortgage on his house, that he owns it outright. I was a bit stumped at first because it would appear, especially in our current climate with how low interest rates are, that this is foolish. Isn’t there a huge opportunity cost to that? But Morgan is clear on his principles, what makes him feel secure, and what’s “enough” for him... not having to think about a mortgage is something that’s important to him. So this conversation isn’t focused so much on what to do with your money, but the importance of having clarity on the reasons why you choose to do, what you do, with it.  ----- Please support our partners!

#159 Dr Mark Hyman on Getting Real About Food
Today’s conversation is all about food and my guest is world-renowned medical doctor, Dr Mark Hyman. Mark has spent decades in clinical practice and we share a real passion for empowering our patients with practical information that they can use to improve their health. As well as his clinical work, Mark is an educator, author and campaigner and is committed to changing policy for the betterment of public health. Last time I spoke to Mark back on episode 98 of the podcast, we spoke about how the food choices we make can impact our health, the environment and climate change. We continue that conversation in today’s episode by talking about the content of his brand-new book, The Pegan Diet. Despite the title, this is not a diet book – it outlines the core principles of nutrition that underpin good health and can be followed by anyone, whatever your dietary or cultural preference. In our conversation, we take a deep dive into concepts like food is medicine, personalised nutrition and the unnecessary conflict between many diet ‘tribes’ – who Mark and I believe actually have more in common than you might think. Mark explains that scientists have identified upwards of 25,000 different phytonutrients, not just in plant foods but also in grazing animals, which our bodies can process and use in complex ways. He explains how our ultra-processed Western diets are contributing to the chronic disease epidemic and that our current food system isn’t just driving poor health, it’s one of the biggest causes of climate change. We also discuss the importance of reducing our food waste, the need for regenerative agriculture and the harm caused by factory farming. Mark’s simple, back-to-basics approach is within all our reach. It’s a myth, he insists, that eating well takes time, money and effort. He argues that the food industry has hijacked our kitchens and convinced us we need to outsource our meals, and it’s time to take back control. I always get a lot from my conversations with Mark and this one is no exception. I love his message that we can all be part of the solution – for our own health, that of society and of the planet. I hope you enjoy listening.

Optimize Your Brain with Science-based Tools | Episode 8
In this episode, I describe how to access focused learning bouts, creative states, and the underlying neural circuitry involved. I frame this in the context of our daily 24-hour cycle in order to make it practical, clear and precise about timing. I review the role of fasting, meal timing and specific types of nutrients for promoting certain states of mind. I also review various other tools and biological factors that directly or indirectly gate brain function and that we can control. I answer commonly asked questions about the science of psychedelics, binaural beats, and visualization. Thank you for your interest in science!

Mira Kirshenbaum | The Biggest Myth About Arguments & How to Deal With Finances In A Relationship
In today’s episode, we cover relationships and conflict resolution with Mira Kirshenbaum. Mira is the author of eleven books, the co-founder and clinical director of The Chestnut Hill Institute in Boston, an internationally recognized center for research and psychotherapy for couples, families and individuals, and has been a workshop leader and trainer for medical professionals at Harvard Medical School and other institutions.   Despite what Hollywood tells us, relationships are not easy and are not always pleasant, so why do couples fight, how do we resolve conflicts in a way that both partners can be satisfied with the outcome, and how do we reframe love in the 21st century to be a reasonable goal we can work toward?   What to Listen For   Why Do Couples Fight - 1:57    Why do couples fight and what do you need to stop doing to prevent future fights? Why do we imitate the power moves of our parents in our own relationships? What does it mean to feel disempowered in a relationship? How do people use distance to hurt their significant other and what can we do to overcome that?     The 8 Core Experiences of Love - 11:00 (starts with AJ saying, “When we think about fights…”)   What should you do everyday to build and maintain healthy relationships with the people you care about? What does it mean to be fair in a relationship? What question should you ask to find out how best to support your significant other when you’re not sure what to do? What does it mean to show respect for your significant other? Is passion a one time thing in a relationship, or is it cyclical?   Conflict Resolution in Relationships - 28:30 (starts with AJ saying, “Now we had Annie Duke on our show…”) How can you use quantification to solve arguments in your relationships? What is the 1-2-3 method and how can you use it to stop arguments from blowing up? What questions can you ask your partner to better understand their concerns about an issue you two are facing? What are the 2 magic questions you should always be ready to ask when you and your partner are facing an issue? What can you do to handle the financial side of a relationship so it doesn’t ruin a great partnership? What do power moves look like that revolve around money?   Reframing Love in the 21st Century - 46:00 What is the biggest myth about love in modern times and what can we do to reframe love so it is not based on fairy tales? How much work is necessary for maintaining a successful relationship? What are the 4 kinds of relationships and what can you learn from them so you know what to avoid in the future? What are the most important steps to take and conversations to have before you have children?   Relationships are often portrayed as the happy ending and the beginning of a trouble-free life filled with love and affection. But any healthy relationship is going to take a lot of work and communication - they don’t just happen. People are too different from one another to be able to come to a quick & easy agreement on everything. We all have different beliefs, thoughts, and expectations about love and relationships, and even life. We must be willing to learn about each other and if you want a relationship to last, both of you must put in the work to maintain it.   A Word From Our Sponsors Share your vulnerabilities, victories, and questions in our 17,000-member private Facebook group at theartofcharm.com/challenge.

Fringe Supplement Stacks You've Never Heard Of, The Best Nootropic Combinations, The Latest Keto Support Compounds, Supplements That Act Like "Exercise In A Bottle" & Much More With Shawn Wells
bengreenfieldfitness.com/energyformula If there's anything people say they want more of these days...it's energy. The world around us continually requires more from us while we give less and less thought to our long-term health. This distracted and overwhelmed mindset has landed us squarely in survival mode, depriving us of the necessary steps to create lasting, sustained energy. The truth is most of us are so exhausted and don't know how to find the energy to live our best lives. My friend Shawn Wells just put the finishing touches on his new book The ENERGY Formula: Six Life Changing Ingredients to Unleash Your Limitless Potential... ...which covers keto, Paleo, biohacking, stoicism, supplements, CBD, nootropics, MCTs, infrared saunas, cold plunges, how to create a sleep fortress, circadian rhythm, and much more. With about 60 full-color diagrams and over 100 scientific citations, Shawn gives you the knowledge you will not find anywhere else, including "Formulator's Corners" in every chapter that cover doses, brands, and forms of supplements you need to be taking as well as "Resource Hacks" that tell you the products, devices, apps, and more to use. Developed by biochemist, dietitian, sports nutritionist, and formulation scientist Shawn Wells after surviving a series of torturous health battles, this pivotal and groundbreaking book is the product of meticulous and persistent research to find solutions to his personal and painful experiences—paired with two decades of legitimate clinical and scientific expertise. Shawn previously joined me on the podcast episode "The Nitty-Gritty Underground World of Supplement Ingredients, Sports Nutrition Frankenfuels, Illegally Laced Compounds & More.," and he's been studying up on plenty more since that show, so prepare for a wild ride on today's podcast. Shawn, who is an MPH, LDN, RD, CISSN, FISSN, is a leading nutritional biochemist and expert on health optimization. He has formulated over 500 supplements, foods, beverages, and cosmeceuticals, has patented 10 novel ingredients, and is now known as the Ingredientologist—the scientist of ingredients. Formerly a chief clinical dietitian with over a decade of clinical experience, he has counseled thousands of people on natural health solutions such as keto, paleo, fasting, and supplements. He has also personally overcome various health issues including Epstein-Barr virus, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, depression, insomnia, obesity, and a pituitary tumor. As a world-renowned thought leader on mitochondrial health, he has been paid to speak on five different continents. His insights have been prominently featured in documentaries, nationally syndicated radio programs, and regularly on morning television. Shawn's expertise can help any health-conscious individual to better manage stress and experience higher performance and more energy through utilizing his practical research-backed solutions. During this discussion, you'll discover: -What Shawn had for breakfast the day of the interview...7:11 * He was 40 hours into a 72-hour fast * 36 to 48 hours into the fast is when he starts to feel amazing * Pique fasting tea * Redmond Real Sea Salt * Redmond Re-Lyte Electrolyte Drink Mix * Hypernatremia, and why slight dehydration isn't a bad thing for performance...9:40 * Hypernatremia: not enough sodium in the blood * Athletes are not only more hypernatremic than dehydrated, but usually both * Electrolyte formulas are fine, but more salt is lost while sweating * Keto dieters tend to be hypernatremic * Hunger and headaches may be a sign of hypernatremia rather than a lack of water * Redmond Real Salt (contains trace minerals, family-oriented company) * Real salt tested low in contamination (no anti-humectant added to dry out the salt) * Celtic Sea Salt (recommended by Robert Slovak) * Ben's morning hydration regimen: * Adds Quinton Hypertonic Minerals to well water from his property * Vitamin C 2:1 ratio to baking soda * Water and Wellness hydrogen tablets * BGF podcasts on deuterium depleted water * * Deuterium Demystified: Everything You Need To Know About Deuterium Depleted Water (DDW), How To Lower Deuterium & Much More, With Dr. Ann Cooper And Dr. Que Collins. * Water & Water Filtration: Everything You Need To Know About Water Filters, Alkaline Water, Structured Water, Hydrogen-Rich Water, Deuterium-Depleted Water & Much More, With Robert Slovak. * Why The War On Cancer Has Failed & What You Can Do About It: Mistletoe, NAD, Deuterium Depleted Water, Melatonin, Gerson Therapy & Beyond, With Dr. Thomas Cowan * Vape Pens, Hair Growth Serums, Fixing The Pineal Gland & C60 (The Next Great Longevity Molecule), With Ian Mitchell. * H2Bev hydrogen water in a can (use code BEN to save 10%) * Avoid glyphosate like the plague (Roundup) -Optimizing glutathione levels for optimal mitochondria...21:35 * Mitochondrial glutathione is the main line of defense against cell death; prevents impairment of the electron transport chain * N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) is one of the best ways to boost glutathione * AlmsBio Mitotherapy, with PQQ and COQ10 (use code BENGREENFIELD10 to save 10%) * Bioadvantex's PharmaNAC * Thorne NAC (what Shawn uses) -The criteria by which Shawn evaluates a supplement brand...25:30 * Contract manufacturing is in some ways better than in-house * Thorne, Standard Process, Pure Encapsulations invest heavily in quality control * BioTrust spent 2 years working on a formula with Shawn * The Nitty-Gritty Underground World of Supplement Ingredients, Sports Nutrition Frankenfuels, Illegally Laced Compounds & More, With Shawn Wells. * You get what's on the label, and you don't get what's not on the label * A little bit more pricey, but you're paying for that quality * Beware of vegetable oils or "proprietary blends" * Companies use the leaf or stem in their product when they should be using the root * Gingko has to be the leaf; ginseng has to be the root -How Shawn discovered two substances and made them into supplement form...35:45 * Theacrine and Dynamine™ * Worked with Dr. Hector Lopez and Dr. Tim Ziegenfuss * Methylliberine (Dynamine™) * In the methylxanthine family (of which caffeine is a part) * Enhanced energy and focus * Pain reduction * Stimulated NAD production * No habituation effect as you find in caffeine * Less adaptation effect * Biggest difference is the half-life * Infopathy generator (use code BENG10 for 10% off) (Ben's podcast with Anton Federenko will be published on February 27) * Hapbee wearable * Theacrine and Dynamine™ are full synthetic (GMP and informed-choice tested for sports - tested athletes can use it); natural extraction is cost-prohibitive, but it does occur naturally in tea leaves and cacao * Shawn's energy stack: * Creatine * Dynamine™ * Alpha GPC -The exercise augmenter that has been called "exercise in a bottle"...44:15 * Advanced Smart Drugs & Nootropics You’ve Never Heard Of, Rare Japanese Seaweed For Sleep Enhancement, The Most Powerful Form Of Vitamin B1 That Exists & Much More!

Intuitive Fasting, Metabolic Flexibility & Metaphysical Meals – Dr. Will Cole with Dave Asprey : 796
Fasting is about way more than what we do and don’t eat, it’s about dedicating time and energy to our full mind and body health. In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m talking more about fasting with Dr. Will Cole, a leading functional medicine and nutrition expert and senior clinic director at Cole Natural Health Centers in Pittsburgh.  His newest book, “Intuitive Fasting: The Flexible Four-Week Intermittent Fasting Plan to Recharge Your Metabolism and Renew Your Health”, presents ways to fast that are flexible and fulfilling for the needs of each unique person. “I want people to actually get to the place where they are guided by their intuition,” says Dr. Cole “Where they can hear that still small voice of that knowingness of what their body needs and what their body doesn't need, at any given moment.” Each person will react differently to different kinds of fasting. To find a practice that works for you, you’ve got to invest for the long run (not just as a fad). We’re often driven by cravings or driven by stress, anger, boredom or other unconscious motivations, without giving it a second thought. So how can we better tune in, observe and act on what our body needs?  Dr. Cole advises: "Whatever that looks like for you to start to grow in awareness, start by being mindful of your relationship with your body and relationship with food and checking yourself." He walks us through the benefits of fasting, some tools to fine tune your fasting routine through mindfulness practice, and how to eat beyond your past and current habits. And maybe most importantly, he’ll teach you to be kind to yourself throughout the process.  Named one of the top 50 functional-medicine and integrative doctors in the nation, Dr. Cole specializes in clinically investigating underlying factors of chronic disease and customizing a functional medicine approach for thyroid issues, autoimmune conditions, hormonal imbalances, digestive disorders, and brain problems. He's also author of the best-selling books “Ketotarian” and “The Inflammation Spectrum.”  Enjoy!

Jamie Kern Lima | Just Watch Me
Jamie Kern Lima thought she’d spend her life in the world of broadcast TV, where after graduating, she began working her way up as a journalist, then eventually news anchor where a bright career was laid out in front of her. Then, the camera started picking up a genetic skin condition that she struggled to hide and threatened to derail what she’d worked for. That experience set in motion a quest that eventually led her out of broadcast journalism and into the world of entrepreneurship where she’d eventually found IT Cosmetics, a company she started in her living room and would eventually sell to L’Oreal for $1.2 Billion, becoming the first female CEO in L’Oreal’s 100+ year history.  Her journey, though, was anything but smooth, with years of 100+ hour weeks, living hand-to-mouth, miles of no’s and countless dark nights of the soul and even a single moment that would either shut the company down or launch them into the stratosphere, which by the way, it did. Jamie is passionate about inspiring and mentoring entrepreneurs, building businesses, making a difference in the lives of women and girls and giving back in a big way.

Initial signs of depression and anxiety can manifest through minor issues like losing your nerves about your in-laws or getting angry for no reason at all. But what if there is a way to fight depression with the food you eat? What might surprise you: Your current diet might be the source of your anxiety and depression. Your mood is directly impacted by what you eat. With the proper evidence-based nutrition, it is possible to take control of anxiety, boost your mood and live a life full of joy. In this episode of Health Theory, Tom Bilyeu is joined by Nutritional Psychiatrist, Men’s Health advisor, and author Drew Ramsey to discuss such matters and more as they explore the current state of depression. They also explain why nutrition is the easiest way of influencing depression positively and uncover a psychological lever to reduce your anxiety. Furthermore they disclose the way your anxiety is influenced by the foods you eat, which foods you should avoid and finally why you shouldn´t lose hope if you currently struggle with mental illness.   SHOW NOTES: The current state of depression.

[2:41] How your anxiety is influenced by the food you eat and the food that causes Tom anxiety. [3:36] What creates lasting change, and how to lead with kindness to change behavior. [6:44] Why most diets fail. [8:40] The food basics almost every Nutritional Psychiatrist agrees on and why they matter. [9:25] Drew reveals the things that are NOT part of every good diet. [12:03] One thing Tom and Drew disagree on. [14:29] Why knowing where your food comes from can help you cure loneliness. [19:11] The big benefits of eating seafood and the top 3 kinds of seafood to beat depression. [24:40] How Omega 3 fats in seafood work like snipers in your immune system.

Depression is up...Recently showing male depression is up 60-70% over the last 12 months.” [1:05] “They found that the risk of depression during quarantine, if your nutrition is bad, went up over 1000%.“ [1:55] “There are foods that people need to cut out of their diet. Diets need to change drastically…” [7:15] “All good diets are lacking ultra-processed foods. The reason I think they´re evil because of the way they increase inflammation.” [12:12]   “We did a research study where we said: When we look at all the literature, what are the top nutrients that are most important for brain health and helping depression? Twelve nutrients stand out. So we asked ourselves: What foods have the most of these 12 nutrients? Aside from plants, 3 of the top 5 foods were seafood.” [26:00]   “I have treated people with every type of mental illness, and it´s actually what gives me hope. It´s what gives me strength and resilience. I have seen people who have it so hard with what happens in their minds, and to see them just do amazing things: Start companies, have families, whatever it is, makes me very hopeful.“ [42:57]   FOLLOW DR.

Approaching climate change like a game of chess with Dr Jonathan Foley
In *Episode #119* I sit down with *Dr Jonathan Foley*, one of the worlds most highly regarded Climate and Environmental Scientist's. Jonathan has published over 130 peer reviewed papers in the the field of sustainability in highly prestigious journals such as _Science_ and _Nature_. He is also an author, a highly sought after guest speaker and is the Executive Director at Project Drawdown, a not-for-profit organisation which is widely considered as the worlds leading resource for information on climate solutions. However, as brilliant as his resume is, his communication is arguably what makes his work so incredibly powerful. * In this episode we cover:* * How the climate change conversation has moved from debate around its existence to debate around solutions * What Project Drawdown is * Individual versus government action * Looking at climate change as a game of chess * Why climate change doesn't have to be scary * The changes we can make as individuals with a specific focus on three key areas: water, energy and food. * and much more If you are wanting to learn real facts about climate change and the solutions we have, from someone who not only values science but contributes to it, then I highly suggest you make time to listen to this...probably more than once! And of course, share it to any friends or family members who you think may benefit from hearing from Dr Foley. *Resources:* * Project Drawdown * Jonathan's Bio * Jonathan on twitter * Jonathon's blog 'Beef rules' * Jonathan's blog on seeing Climate change as a game of Chess * Confused about holistic grazing and whether grass-fed beef is a real climate solution?

Ep. 9: Dr. Reshma Shah - Food and Family
Last week, we spoke with registered dietitian and author, Brenda Davis, about her latest work called, Nourish: The Definitive Plant-Based Nutrition Guide for Families--With Tips & Recipes for Bringing Health, Joy, & Connection to Your Dinner Table. This week, we continue with part two of this important topic with co-author, Dr. Reshma Shah. Dr. Shah is a board-certified pediatrician, mother, plant-based home-cook, teacher, and student. She has nearly two decades of experience caring for children and families, and currently sees patients at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and serves as an affiliate clinical instructor at Stanford University School of Medicine. We know it’s hard to bring an entire family on board the plant-based journey with you because there is a real fear around community, judgment, and nutrition requirements. We also know that you want what’s best for your families and it’s time we have positive conversations around food — with your doctors, friends, and especially your family. Dr. Shah reveals some of the tools, resources, and recipes from the book that will bring joy, abundance, and nutrition back to the family table. It will also instill confidence in knowing that you’re making powerful and positive decisions for the benefit of your entire family for years to come. It's never too late to make changes and bring the family along the adventure with you.

TMHS 461: Psychosomatic Effects Of COVID-19, Lack Of Transparency, & Dangerous Outcomes
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” -Alice Walker Over the past year, a lot has changed. Many of us have had to pivot our work situations, how we educate our children, and how we connect with our loved ones. Some folks have struggled to make ends meet and lost access to important outlets like gyms and therapists. Even worse, some people have experienced loss. Pandemic fatigue has set in, leaving many people feeling exhausted, burnt out, and pushed to their limits. And as you can imagine, living in a place of constant stress and fear can take a toll on our health—both mentally and physically. On this episode of The Model Health Show, we’re diving back into the studies on COVID-19. You’re going to learn about the psychosomatic effects of the pandemic, including how our immune system responds to our thoughts and emotions. We’re going to talk about how our current climate has politicized science and review recent studies on mask wearing. Most importantly, you’re going to learn what you can actually do to protect your health and minimize your risk of infections. I hope this episode emboldens you to take authority and responsibility over your own health. Because at the end of the day, you are the most qualified person to take care of you. In this episode you’ll discover: * What a psychosomatic condition is. * How stress and fear can actually change our biology. * What psychoneuroimmunology is. * The impact that psychological stress can have on the immune system. * How immune cell activity can improve by walking. * The link between preexisting conditions and COVID-19 deaths. * What endemic means. * The importance of optimizing our immune system so it can work as intended. * How the pandemic has affected mental health in children. * The connection between mood disorders and COVID-19 risk. * What a nocebo effect is. * How effective placebos generally are, and why it matters. * The importance of activating your lymphatic system through exercise. * How meditation can increase your natural killer cells. * The role sleep plays in the function of the immune system. * Why the pandemic has been politicized, and why that’s a problem. * How science gets oversimplified in the media. * Examples of science being suppressed. * What you need to know about observational studies. * The negative side effects of wearing a mask. * What happens to a mask’s efficacy when exposed to moisture. * The importance of taking responsibility for our own health.
