Dr. Ron Ehrlich is a dentist turned holistic health advocate and stress expert and author of A life Less Stressed, the 5 Pillars of Health and Wellness. He is also the host of the Podcast show Unstress with Dr. Ron Ehrlich and I’m excited to hear this thoughts today on a number of topics.
As we get started, Dr. Ron discusses why dental stress is related to digestion, sleep, infections, our breathing and even posture and is now committed to sharing his research with the public.
He discusses the importance of proper breathing and how sleep is such an overlooked aspect of good health.
We talk about why public health messages are so confusing and contradictory and at the role of the food and pharmaceutical industries in all levels of health care.
He then shares his five pillars of health and how they're used to build physical, mental and emotional resilience. His pillars are sleep, breathe, nourish, movement and thought.
We share many of the same beliefs are far as focusing on the basics of health and how the government and food industry doesn't seem to have our health in mind, but rather a deeper interest in making money on cheap, processed foods.
We also talk about intermittent fasting and how beneficial it can be not only for weight loss, but for overall health and wellness as well. We also share a common principle of eating a "clean" and whole food diet 80% of the time (or more) and that much of the failure in the diet industry can be related to the lack of sustainability.
