In this episode, I speak with Bryan Carroll CFMP, NTP, FAFS all about his work as a holistic, functional practitioner and the importance of having a strong connection to nature.

Bryan has a cool podcast called “Summit For Wellness” and is a big outdoor enthusiast.

Connecting with nature and avoiding the toxicity of modern society has many mental health benefits and nootropic effects.

Along with avoiding brain-draining chemicals, the outdoor activities allow your body to reset its circadian rhythm which has a number of mental benefits including hormone optimization.
