In this episode of The Health Edge Mark and John discuss the current research linking the microbiome to human health. They review why we have fewer and less diverse “Fellow Travelers” and how we can begin to think about restoring this critical ecosystem legacy.
In this episode of The Health Edge Mark and John discuss the metabolic disruptors that increase the risk of Alzheimer’s and other “brain-related diseases”. The explore lifestyle interventions proven to restore many of these risk factors. Might Alzheimer’s be preventable or reversible? The research is suggesting a very surprising answer!
In this episode of The Health Edge Mark and John discuss the connection between mitochondrial function and the risk-progression of many chronic complex diseases. They explore the many “environmental” drivers and offer some lifestyle interventions to improve mitochondrial reserve-resilience.
In this episode of The Health Edge Mark and John discuss protein intake, sources, and health. They touch on:
- How much protein is sufficient for most
- What are the differences between plant and animal protein sources
- What are the benefits and risks of IGF-1 from a health perspective

In this episode of The Health Edge Mark and John discuss the importance of advanced glycolsylated end-products (AGE molecules). They explore the epidemiology and mechanisms that connect AGEs to chronic complex disease. They conclude with lifestyle strategies that can lower AGE burden and improve AGE management.
