Few alive have traveled farther or crusaded harder on behalf of helping individuals transform their digestive health, wellness and overall lives than Wade T. Lightheart. After competing in Mr. Universe and his health failing him following a competition victory, Wade began to search for answers. In the process, he learned so much about what makes digestion work, along with other principles that form what he calls the AWESOME Health system. Wade’s journey into vegetarianism and bodybuilding took his health to new heights, empowering him to help others with a unique perspective. Wade also serves as an advisor to the American Anti-Cancer Institute, and is the Co-Founder and Director of Education at BiOptimizers, a digestive health company.

Join me as we find out: How does the digestion process work? If cooking breaks down important enzymes, what solutions are there? Are dishes with complex ingredients more challenging for the body to digest? Is their enzyme formula for everyone? When is the best time to take probiotics? Also, Wade and Matt will tell us about: The five stages to digestion. The importance of enzymes. The importance of focused eating. How many probiotics miss their mark. It was a pleasure to have Wade and Matt on the podcast to share their wisdom and knowledge: “Enzymes are like cutting the grass, and probiotics are like mulching the grass.” “You're not what you eat - you are what you are able to digest, absorb and utilise.” “Health shouldn’t be about restriction - it should be about increasing your actions, not lessening!” To find out more about Wade and Matt, visit their website https://bioptimizers.com I’d love to know your thoughts and experiences - join the conversation on my Facebook page.

Matt Gallant is an entrepreneur, a poker champion, an ex-rock guitarist, a strength and conditioning coach with a degree in kinesiology, the CEO of a company called BiOptimizers, and a guy who send me e-mails like this: "Subject line: probiotic enema Break open a handful of capsules and ferment in coconut water...reaches peak power around 4-5 hours of fermentation. However you live in a cooler climate so it might take longer. You can drink it, and if it's still sweet then you can go longer. When it starts to become a bit acidic, that's when it is at it's peak. For enema, retention time should be 15-20 minutes. I like doing the Batman enema. I'll go upside down with the Om Swing so it really works it's way down. I tend to do this after two days of fasting so it really takes care of old bad bacteria..." As you can imagine, this dude thinks outside the box when it comes to nutrition and health.
