Knowledge is power when it comes to improving our health with Dr Anton Krige
In today’s show, I sit down again with Dr. Anton Krige, who is a medical doctor, multiple Ironman finisher, and functional medicine specialist.
In this episode, we dive deep into what it’s like to work closely with Anton and how he transforms his patients’ health and well-being. We use me as the case study in this one and it was eye-opening to get the results back from some of the tests I did (particularly finding out that my biological age is 29 which isn’t bad for a 40-something guy). And there were plenty of other fascinating insights I found out about which I’ve been able to integrate into my daily routine.
Anton treats those with complex chronic conditions and those who wish to optimise sports performance whilst maintaining health & wellness using his research skills and experience to incorporate cutting-edge research findings in both health and exercise physiology.
Anton was previously on the show in episode 68 in case anyone wants to hear a more wide-ranging interview on health and some of the key lifestyle factors for transforming it, the latest tech you can use to improve your health as well as what an ideal day looks like to turn around your metabolic health.
