EP158: The Evolutionary Mismatch with Stephen Hussey


Imagine being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 9 years old. 

After 10 years of trying to successfully manage your condition to no avail you end up in a freshman biology course that finally helps you understand WHY you developed an autoimmune disease and why chronic disease rates are rising rapidly. 

And most importantly, WHAT you need to do to feel better than you ever have in your life. 

This is what happened to this week’s podcast guest, board certified chiropractic and Functional Medicine practitioner, Dr. Stephen Hussey. 

Dr. Hussey has a bachelor’s degree in Health and Wellness Promotion from the University of North Carolina Asheville, a Master’s in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine and a Doctorate of Chiropractic both from the University of Western States. He is the author of The Health Evolution: Why Understanding Evolution is the Key to Vibrant Health and The Heart: Our Most Medically Misunderstood Organ. 

Dr. Hussey is passionate and super nerdy (in the best possible way!) which made for a fascinating conversation! Here are some of the fascinating tidbits you’re in for...

  • What he did to manage his autoimmune condition
  • The food group that was wreaking havoc on his gut health
  • The 4 principles of evolution that explain the rise in chronic disease 
  • The 5 imbalances that cause chronic disease 
  • What 3 things TRULY cause heart disease
  • Why I used to pass out in high school
  • And so much more!

I hope you listen in and feel ENLIGHTENED and EMPOWERED, and then share this important information with everyone you know and love. 

Thanks for listening!
