Ep. 84 ft. Dr. Frank Lipman

04.18.18

Jordan chats with Dr. Frank Lipman, one of the first + most well known functional and integrative medicine doctors! Originally from South Africa, Dr. Lipman immigrated to the United States in 1984. He founded the Eleven Eleven Wellness Center Center in 1992, where according to his website, “he combines the best of Western medicine and cutting edge nutritional science with age-old healing techniques from the East.” Dr. Lipman is an established author and also the founder of Be Well, an expanding lifestyle wellness brand he founded in 2010 to help people create, sustain, and lead healthier lives.

 

Dr. Lipman talks all about optimal health as an individual pursuit (aka what works for Jordan may not work for everyone!). This being said, he does concede that gluten is, in his expert opinion, unhealthy for everyone, and sugar will lead to excessive weight gain for many. Dr. Lipman also delves into the connection between gut health and brain health (stress, mood, depression, etc.). He continues to WOW us with observed parallels between technology addiction and sugar addiction, and concludes with his thoughts on intermittent fasting. Dr. Lipman reminds us that becoming healthier doesn’t have to be scary!! It’s all about balance and, of course, changing bad habits into good habits.

 

Jordan also thinks everybody has to know about Thrive Market! If you like to eat high vibe, plant-based, organic goodness from the earth, then this is going to save you a lot of money because their prices are 25-50% below retail price. Plus, Thrive Market is offering you $60 of FREE organic groceries, with free shipping and a 30-day trial on their website, if you go to ThriveMarket.com/BLONDE.

 

As much as Jordan loves cooking at home, sometimes the hardest part of eating healthy is just finding the time! That’s why she loves meal delivery services like Sun Basket. They deliver healthy and delicious recipes with fresh ingredients straight to your door, and you can prepare each meal in 30 minutes or less.
