Welcome!  Today’s guest is Evan Brand, who is a certified nutritional therapy practitioner and personal trainer.  He is the author of REM Rehab and Stress Solutions and the creator of the “Not Just Paleo” podcast.  Evan specializes in whole foods nutrition, blood sugar regulation, digestive health, cognitive enhancement, and stress management.  It’s an interesting conversation full of great information, so join us!

Evan Brand

Evan’s interest in health intensified when he was in college and working 3rd shift.  He noticed a huge slump in his energy level, an increase in depression, and a lowered immune response.  He searched the internet for answers even though his diet was good, and he worked out as a bodybuilder.  He began experimenting with herbs, supplements, and consciousness to find the key.  His goal now is to help people achieve true health and happiness, which is directly contrary to the goal of traditional medicine.

Evan discusses the following health topics:

  • His “Not Strictly Paleo” template for clients advises eating three square meals daily and not crazy fad diets that just add more stress on the body.
  • Evan describes the adrenal hormonal test and salivary test he commonly uses for his clients.
  • Evan gives tips for reducing and managing stress.
  • Evan talks about lights, hormones, and naked eyeballs in his description of sleep and circadian rhythms.
  • Evan gives helpful tips to achieve optimal sleep, including foods and supplements.
  • Evan discusses gluten’s impact on moods and overall health.
  • Evan gives three simple tips to make small changes that bring big health results.

This episode is jam-packed with helpful information.  Don’t miss my conversation with Evan!
