What Your Metabolism Can Tell You About Your Mental Health

In this podcast (episode #363) and blog, I talk to Daniel Tal Mor, the founder and CEO of Lumen, about the importance of a healthy metabolism and how everyone can attain it! 

Lumen is the world’s first handheld portable device designed to accurately measure metabolism. It is designed to help you enhance fat burn, manage weight, boost your energy, manage blood sugar levels and improve your mental and physical health in real time.

I personally use my Lumen device to monitor my metabolic health as I age, especially when I make any dietary and lifestyle changes to improve my mental and physical health. I love examining my results over time, in real time, and getting great advice from the Lumen community so I can feel energized to keep doing what I love, even as I age!

The best thing about Lumen is that it is not just for professionals like me. Their mission is to create a world where every person has access to personalized nutrition and is empowered to improve their health through the world’s most cutting edge technology in the field. Their incredible device gives you data-based insight into what is happening in your body by measuring the CO2 content in your breath, which better helps you understand how your different habits are impacting your inner health through your metabolism in real time, as your metabolism is constantly changing. This process can help you better understand what is going on inside your body and find out what you can do to improve your overall wellbeing. For a limited time only, you can get $40 off your Lumen purchase here with the promo code DRLEAF. This offer is only valid for the first 100 orders.

Why is metabolism such an important measurement? Metabolic flexibility is the ability of the human body to switch back and forth between fat and carbohydrates based on their availability, which is necessary to fuel day to day life—from your thinking to your breathing to your walking. It is important for:

  • Better overall health
  • Better sleep
  • Better stress management
  • Stronger immune system
  • Optimized workout performance
  • Optimized nutrition and better weight maintenance
  • Feeling more energized and less sluggish 

Thankfully, your metabolism can be improved, just like your body gets stronger and fitter from working out, and Lumenhelps you figure out how to do this. It provides the unique insights you need daily to understand how your nutrition and other lifestyle habits are impacting your brain and body, and gives you guidance to improve your metabolism AND keep you on track. It is personalized health care at its best, making your relationship with your brain and body healthier and stronger, and giving you access to a community of like-minded individuals so you never feel alone on your health journey.

BiOptimizer’s Magnesium Breakthrough. If we want to be healthier mentally and physically, one of the best things we can possibly do is get several hours of quality sleep every night. The brain and body heal themselves when we sleep—it really is one of the most amazing processes, even if we are not conscious when it happens! Thankfully, there are ways we can improve our sleep quality and overall health, including taking MAGNESIUM. But most magnesium supplements use only the two cheapest synthetic forms—since they’re not full-spectrum, they won’t support better sleeping habits. There are actually 7 unique forms of magnesium, and you must get ALL of them if you want to experience its calming, sleep-enhancing effects. That’s why I recommend Magnesium Breakthrough by BiOptimizers. Simply take two capsules before you go to bed and you’ll be amazed by how much better you sleep, and how much more rested you feel when you wake up! For an exclusive offer for my listeners go to http://www.magbreakthrough.com/leaf and use DRLEAF10 during checkout to save 10% on your order.
