Today I’m speaking with Dr. Bradley Bush. Dr. Bush is a naturopathic physician practicing in Minnesota. In his practice he focuses on adrenal health, sleep and Lyme disease. Today we had the opportunity to talk about these factors in a really particular context. We talked about optimal neuro-endocrine balance for entrepreneurs. We talked about the reason that the digestive system is the root of everything to do with a person’s health, and we also looked at why it is that you can’t sleep. Until my personal coughing fit interrupted the discussion, we were also dipping into the epidemic of Lyme disease. This episode is jampacked, it is speaking specifically to entrepreneurs and go-getters, and you’re going to get a lot out of it.
