This week on the Brute Strength Podcast I interview Dr. Ben House (@dr_ben_house). Strap in because it’s not long before we start geeking out on topics like mindfulness, meditation, dieting, the human body and especially functional medicine. You will quickly learn that Ben is not your ordinary Doctor, but one with a passion for superior athletic performance through holistic functional practice. This guy is all about finding problems before they start and helping you make quality decisions about your health. Join us as we dive into things like; what you should be asking your doctor, high fat diet, nutrient timing,  gluten and much, much more.
