EP 81 - New Anti-Aging Strategy: Autophagy
Naomi Whittel suffered from autoimmune disorders in her youth. She worked to reduce inflammation and get rid of her eczema. It wasn’t until she saw an acupuncturist and started taking herbal supplements that her conditions improved.

Autophagy is "cellular self-eating." This means your cells eat toxins and waste. Your body can’t perform normal autophagy if it’s stressed or overloaded with toxins.

Autophagy can be activated with proper sleep, nutrition and fitness.

Listen as Naomi joins Dr. Taz to share how autophagy works and her favorite health hacks to jump-start the autophagy process.
