274: Simple Ways to Optimize Your Health & Slow Aging - Emily Gold Mears

On Air with Ella - podcast episode 274

Emily Gold Mears

People need to know that they can and must take ownership of their health, and that if they do, they will have the opportunity to feel better, live longer and postpone the onset and consequences of chronic disease. - Emily Gold Mears


Emily Gold Mears is a well-respected citizen scientist and author of Optimizing Your Health: An Approachable Guide to Reducing Your Risk of Chronic Disease. A former attorney, Emily shifted her advocacy efforts to seek information on optimizing one’s health through extensive research analysis in science and medicine. Her research focuses on the intersection of functional and allopathic medicine, and the critical requirements for individuals to become their own healthcare advocates.

We discuss:

  • Why we should spearhead our own medical testing

  • When it comes to supplements, Emily says "TEST, DON'T GUESS"

  • Why Emily doesn't recommend a multi-vitamin (and why I am REALLY selective about mine!)

  • Why oral health and a healthy oral ecosystem is foundational to good health

  • Why Emily says JUST SAY NO to root canals

  • Heat rate variability - what it means and why it matters

  • Find a biological dentist here:

  • How to access testing and analysis from your own home

  • Why some stress is GREAT for you... the benefits of hormesis

  • Why Emily recommend the DUTCH TEST for hormonal testing (just like Dr. Meg Mill did!)
