In this podcast Dr. Yurth talks with My Home Vitality about simple, scientifically proven, methods that anyone can use to improve their health and live longer.
A few highlights:
Start with getting your immune system healthier! Everything starts to fail after immune dysregulation. It’s imperative that we look after our immune systems! – muscle building, circadian rhythm, hormones, etc.
Muscle is an organ. It produces myokines that affect every organ in the body – brain, liver, gut, heart, etc. – “If you have no muscle and you’re not producing myokines, your organs will be adversely affected.” You want interleukin 6 (IL6) to be binding to muscle receptors and not floating around in your body. You must strength train!
