Hampton is in the house, a prolific health coach working with clients from all around the world to address the root causes of their underlying chronic health conditions. 

Together with Dr. Jockers, he’s answering your questions in this illuminating Q&A episode where we learn about autophagy (your body’s cellular recycling system), fatigue, fasting, tremors… and so much more!

Understand how and why our body breaks down older, more damaged mitochondria so that we become stronger and more stress resilient. What signs are there to look out for in a good fast, and what is the best food to break a fast? What toxins and infections are there to look out for if you’re feeling fatigued? Getting the most nutrients out of eating chicken wings – do you chew on the bone? 

From eating the whole animal to looking at the bigger picture when it comes to diet, fasting, fatigue, and tremors, Dr. Jockers and Hampton uncover it all as they answer your questions with authority, style, and awesome insight!

“If you’re fasting 16 to 18 hours, you feel great, you don’t have cravings, you feel very, very mentally stable. If you test your blood ketones, they’re in that kind of 1 to 2 range, that’s a sign that your body is breaking down fat effectively for fuel.”
