Live Longer By Optimizing Your Immune System


One of my favorite mantras is by Confucius: “A healthy person wants a thousand things. A sick person only wants one.” Their health! As we all chase after our dreams, it can get easy to put our health on the backburner. It might feel more convenient to get fast food or buy a bag of chips than it is to make a well-balanced meal. It might feel easier to sit on the couch than it does to go to the gym. 

But know this: any time spent on your physical health is time well spent. It’s never a waste of time. It’s an investment in your future self, and believe me, they’ll ‘thank’ you for the work you put in today.

In my days as an athlete, I always had to be conscious of what went into my body. If I neglected my nutrition or overall health, it would almost always show up on the field. I’m not perfect by any means, but I try to keep that same attention to detail on my health & wellness today. The way I show up for myself and my body will directly impact how many people I can reach, how effectively I can communicate, and how well I can perform. 

That’s why I’m excited for our guest today — his name is Mike Mutzel and he’s dedicated his career to exploring how we can all get our bodies to their optimal levels through nutrition, fasting, and other science-backed practices. Please help me welcome the one-and-only, Mike Mutzel, to The School of Greatness!

“Slow down. Anything great takes patience.” @MikeMutzel  

Mike earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Western Washington University in 2006 and completed his M.S. in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in 2015 and is a graduate of the Institute for Functional Medicine’s (IFM) Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP).

He is a Functional Medicine consultant in the natural product industry and has worked as a nutritionist with Gerard Guillory, MD of the Care Group, PC in Denver, CO. Mike has lectured alongside Dr. Guillory to large patient-groups in the Denver area and they have been featured on local T.V. programs discussing the power of Nutrition and Functional Medicine.

To continue his quest for knowledge Mike attends many Continuing Medical Education (CME) events held by various organizations around the country, learning from top researchers in the field through groups like AACR, ACAM, A4M and IFM. He has currently completed four of six Advanced Practice Modules (APMs) to earn the only board certification in Functional Medicine through IFM.

If you’re ready to learn what you can do to look and feel your very best, then I know you’ll find value in this episode. Mike explains how we can all improve our immune system, how to slow down the aging process, all the benefits of fasting, and so much more!
