I can't believe it is already the end of 2019, and on top of that we are closing out the end of a decade!
Over the course of the year, we have had 30 guests come on to the show talking about topics ranging from Intermittent Fasting, to brain health, sexual support, gut inflammation, and sports recovery. On top of all that, the Summit For Wellness Podcast has doubled in listeners in the last year alone!
Below you will find the Top 5 Podcast Episodes from 2019. This was determined by the most amount of downloads within the first month of release of an episode, that way everyone has the same chance to place in the top 5!
Episode 86- Enhance Your Performance Nutrition with Geoff Lecovin
Coming in at Number 5, we have Geoff Lecovin teaching us all about Performance Nutrition.
Often “performance” is associated with athletic abilities, but performance can take place in a lot of different areas of life, such as your career, or even handling your kids.
In Episode 86, Geoff walks us through his pyramid of steps to optimize your performance.
Episode 93- Fix the Gut to Fix the Brain with Dr. Robert Silverman
Have you heard the saying “leaky gut, leaky brain”? If so, this episode will walk you through exactly how that saying came to be.
Dr. Robert Silverman is an expert on gut health, and teaches us about signs related to digestive stress. He walks us through lab tests to run, foods to remove, and steps to take to repair our system.
Episode 88- Optimize Your Recovery in Sports with Lenny Parracino
You may remember Lenny from Episode 12 (the most downloaded episode we have) where he talks all about our soft tissue health.
In Episode 88, his focus in on recovery, and how to optimize our routines to improve function. While this episode was more focused on recovery in sports, he walks us through what protocols may look like for someone who isn't a pro athlete.
Episode 85- Making Informed Supplement Choices with Kate Mahoney
The battle between Top 1 and 2 was within only a couple of downloads, so these episodes were really close. Coming in at Number 2 is Kate Mahoney and her talk about supplement choices.
You may have noticed all the bottles of supplements at every single grocery store. And you have probably seen how the price can vary pretty dramatically. So is the extra cost worth it for supplements? Or are all supplements created equal?
You'll have to listen to Episode 85 to find out.
Episode 76- How to Succeed with Intermittent Fasting with Cynthia Thurlow
Topping the charts in 2019 was Cynthia Thurlow! Last year she finished in 2nd, and this year rose to the challenge to take the top spot. If you hear her story at the beginning of the episode, 2019 has been a hectic year for her, both physically and mentally.
Her story alone is amazing, but then coupled with the information around Intermittent Fasting, this episode turned into a spectacular show.
Congratulations Cynthia Thurlow for being our Top Downloaded Podcast Episode of 2019!
