I hope you're ready for an information-packed episode today! David Krantz is a health coach who specializes in genetics, including epigenetics, nutrigenomics, nutrigenetics, and even the genetic component of CBD/THC/and other cannabis-derived products. You'll want to grab a pen and paper for this one! Today, you'll learn about:
-What epigenetics is/what it means,
-How we can change our genetic makeup throughout our lifetime with diet, exercise, and lifestyle,
-What happens when our genes and environments don't match,
-The difference between nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics,
-The genetic component behind why some diets work amazingly for some people and not for others,
-How something as small as changing the type of fat you're eating can better work with your genetic makeup and lead to better body composition,
-What is the MTHFR gene, why has it gotten so much hype, and what does it mean if you have one of the MTHFR polymorphisms,
-What the endocannabinoid system is,
-How THC and CBD impact people differently,
-Some of the genetic implications for CBD/THC use,
-Heart rate variability training,
-...SO much more (if you can imagine that)!

Today's episode of EMBody Radio is brought to you by Four Sigmatic. Four Sigmatic provides the best in adaptogenic/therapeutic mushroom products. You’ve seen me post about this stuff on Instagram and IG stories all the time, and I wanted to take a sec to tell you a little more about them today. I started using them because I love adaptogens, and many of their mushroom products are just that – adaptogens. Adaptogens basically help you respond better to physical and emotional stress. I run a business, run multiple social media platforms that tie into my business, I’m a student, and I have a life outside of all that that I’m trying to live, so stress management is key. Mushrooms can also be used to help everything from your gut health to your skin.
My favorites are the Lion's Mane Mushroom Elixir and the Mushroom Hot Cacao with Reishi... Be sure to listen to the whole episode to learn why ;). If you want to try Four Sigmatic products, use the code "EMDUNC" to get 15% off your order at foursigmatic.com/emdunc.
