“Functional genetics has an element that western genetics doesn’t have, and that’s hope and optimism.”
-Dr. Sam Shay
Dr. Sam Shay is a chiropractor who helps busy, health-conscious individuals increase their energy, resilience, and “Stop-The-Clock” from the effects of aging, so they can create and sustain a healthy and free life.
Dr. Shay has dedicated his life to helping others through functional medicine and functional genetics. He has recently authored a new eBook on Genetics where he goes into how your genes affect vitamin D absorption, immunity support, and so much more. In today’s talk we delve into what can be learned from genetic testing, and even laughter, to improve our bones and overall health. We even discuss a great exercise that Dr. Shay learned from a practitioner who worked with astronauts to help improve their bone density.
