CONFESSIONS OF A VITAMIN JUNKIE
with Dr. Kelly Bender
 
Episode #009

                                      MEET ARI MEISEL

Is it extreme to shoot up vitamins? How far would you go to feel good and be healthy? I've gone to some pretty insane lengths to optimize my performance, sometimes with mixed results. In this episode, Dr. Kelly Bender & I dissect some of the extreme health hacks I’ve tried, to find out exactly which of them has actual scientific validity and which do not. For example, do you know how dangerous heavy metal toxicity is to your body, and how you get rid of it? It turns out it's pretty tricky. And expensive. We also discuss the best sleep practices and some very innovative things that you can do to eliminate pain in your body. 

Dr. Bender is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor trained as an expert in natural medicine. Her approach to cutting edge therapies include intravenous nutrient therapy, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and regenerative therapies like Prolotherapy. She’s based in California and enjoys teaching her patients and students at various medical schools.

Sit back and enjoy our very intelligent and relatable guest, Dr. Kelly Bender.

“When you do intravenous shots straight into the vein, it floods every cell in your body in a little over a minute. The cells are getting the nutrients directly and absorbs them, so you don’t have to rely on the digestive tract to do it and not worry if your liver is eliminating any of it”
— Dr. Kelly Bender
