If you've been listening to the show for awhile, you probably have noticed that there are a lot of different aspects to health, and it isn't as simple as exercising and eating well. These 2 aspects can make a huge difference in health, but lifestyle and environmental factors are also something that needs to be taken into account.

This is why I love what my guest Navin Hettiarachchi is doing. He is combining a bunch of different health modalities into his own method he calls the REDT Method.

Navin has taken his approach working with professional athletes and is bringing that knowledge to the rest of us. His goal is to help people live happy, healthy, pain-free, injury-free, and illness-free lives!
