I am excited to bring you this week’s wonderful interview with one of my favourite Naturopathic Doctors. Dr. Ben Lynch is the best-selling author of Dirty Genes and President of Seeking Health, a company that helps educate both the public and health professionals on how to overcome genetic dysfunction. He received his doctorate in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University. He lives in Seattle, WA with his wife and three sons. Ben is particularly passionate about environmental medicine and in today’s episode we talk about home renovation and wifi/electricity, but also about genetics and his wonderful book, supplements, histamine, probiotics and what the benefit of ‘pulsing’ through your supplement regime might be and becoming a bit more intuitive about how to supplement and when you really might need them.

Greetings, SuperFriends! Today we are joined by Dr. Ben Lynch, the best-selling author of Dirty Genes and a leader in the field of nutrigenomics. He’s also president of Seeking Health, an innovative company providing supplements, courses, and tools designed to help people overcome genetic dysfunction and optimize health. After earning his Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Washington, he then obtained a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University where he now serves on the Board of Trustees. Dr. Lynch lives in Seattle, WA with his wife and three sons. Now, I wanted to have Dr. Lynch on the show, not because we haven't talked about genetics recently, as I've actually been talking and I've been trying to talk a lot about genetics and the fact that we can influence how our genes are expressed... The reason that I wanted to have him on was that he has a very contrarian approach and a lot of really, really new and fresh, exciting advice that I think you're all going to enjoy very much. I really enjoyed this episode, it actually ran over the amount of time that I said I would, and that doesn't always happen. Enjoy! -Jonathan Levi
