Stress is a necessary part of human existence.
But what's too much and what's not enough?
Dr. Michael Lewis, founder & President of the Brain Health Education and Research Institute, joins Adam and Naresh to discuss what his research has shown on the subject of stress, concussions, and why 2020 has been so difficult on everyone's mental psyche.
Dr. Lewis explains simple dietary actions, sleep schedules, and exercise can help our brains when we're creating our work from home schedule, as well as how the economic shutdown will impact our health.
Dr. Lewis is an expert on nutritional interventions for brain health, particularly the use of omega-3 fatty acids for the prevention, management, and rehabilitation of concussions and traumatic brain injury (TBI). He founded Brain Health Education and Research in late 2011 upon retiring as a Colonel after a distinguished 31 year career in the U.S. Army. His pioneering work in the military and since has helped thousands of people around the world and regularly featured in the media including CNN’s Sanjay Gupta MD show and numerous radio shows and podcasts. He is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and Tulane University School of Medicine. Dr. Lewis is board-certified and a Fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine and the American College of Nutrition. He completed post-graduate training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Johns Hopkins University, and Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. He is currently in private practice in Potomac, Maryland, is a consultant to the U.S. Army and Navy as well as several organizations, institutes, and nutrition companies around the world, and a founding member of the Pop Warner Youth Football Medical Advisory Board.
