Expert Guest: Dr. Stephen Hussey

In today's episode, Megan and Nadia interview Dr. Stephen Hussey, a chiropractor diagnosed

with Type 1 Diabetes early on in life. He’s learned, discovered, and is sharing so many great things with us today from his book, Understanding the Heart: Surprising Insights into the Evolutionary Origins of Heart Disease―and Why It Matters

Listen in as Megan and Nadia pick Dr. Hussey’s brain on some questions about his book and work on:

  • Mitochondria, known as the “powerhouse of the cell”

  • Which is the most efficient source of fuel with less oxidative stress? Surprise! The heart prefers to burn fatty acids and ketones

  • The diet-heart hypothesis and how we went from “original humans” who ate mostly a diet high in saturated fat to the current recommendations based on “bad science” which demonize fat

  • Stress and why this is THE MOST important topic according to Stephen - “Stress really DOES kill”

  • What labs to ask your doctor for to mitigate and assess heart risk
