047: Jade Teta | Mind, Muscle, Metabolism: A Naturopath’s Perspective on Health, Relationships, & Personal Development

Jul 23, 2018 | Interviews, Podcast

Today my guest is the amazing Dr. Jade Teta, an integrated physician, author of The Metabolic Effect Diet, and a sought-after expert in the realms of metabolism and self-development. I wanted to bring Jade on the show not only because he’s insanely knowledgeable about how the body functions, but also because he knows how to explain complex ideas in plain language that we can all understand and use.

On top of that, I talked to Jade’s former wife Jill Coleman back in episod 31. Jill shared some super intimate details on the events that led to their divorce and how they’re now amazing friends. I wanted to learn more about what we can use when a relationship doesn’t work; how we can grow from it, share it, and actually still care about the other person.
