Dr. Bubbs' Philosophy
Dr. Bubbs is a firm believer that what you eat, how you move, and key lifestyle factors (like sleep and stress management) are the "big rocks" (i.e. fundamentals) for preventing and reversing chronic disease, as well as living a healthy and vital life.
Dr. Bubbs' work is informed by his own experience dealing with an undiagnosed illness in his late teens, which caused fatigue, poor energy, and an inability to perform during training. After several months of testing and countless doctor visits later, he was no closer to a solution and was recommended by a friend to see a Naturopathic Doctor. Skeptical at first (but also fed up with feeling sick and tired), he was ready to try anything. Incredibly, after only two weeks on a specific dietary and digestive support protocol his symptoms improved dramatically and completely resolved a month later.
Since then, Dr. Bubbs studied, worked and traveled across the globe and found that it didn’t matter if he was in Costa Rica, France, or Japan... common themes for healthy living were present in strikingly different populations - healthy people move a lot, healthy people eat real food, and healthy people enjoy life. It doesn't matter if you're overweight and out of shape, a weekend warrior or professional athlete... YOU have the power to build a better brain, a better body, a better YOU.
