Are You a Professional Human Being?

by Sean Croxton

If there is one thing guaranteed about life, it is that we all evolve.

I can recall my early days as a personal trainer, when I considered exercise to be the solution for everything under the sun. I immersed myself in books, videos, and courses on fitness, strength, periodization, and anything else that could help me build the ultimate physical human machine.

Then I stumbled upon the work of Weston A. Price, Francis Marion Pottenger, and many other nutrition legends who convinced me that diet was a critical element of building not only a well-tuned physical body but one that enjoyed internal health as well.

As I learned more about nutrition, I became less enthusiastic about my personal training career. Since it was so different from anything else they had ever heard before, most clients seemed to be disinterested in my nutritional advice. They just wanted to work out. And since you can’t exercise your way out of a bad diet, I eventually hung up my stopwatch to become a nutrition consultant.

Working as a Metabolic Typing Advisor, I quickly learned that many of my clients had health challenges that went far beyond diet and exercise. Despite their much improved eating habits, things like insomnia, low libido, and digestive problems continued to persist. That is when I stumbled upon Reed Davis and the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) course.

FDN blew my mind. I learned all about steroidal hormone imbalances, detoxification pathways, intestinal pathogens and dysbiosis (bacterial overgrowth), and a bunch of other cool stuff. The best part is that I could run lab tests on my clients to see where the hidden internal dysfunctions resided. Once we found those dysfunctions, I had the pleasure of helping my clients correct them through natural protocols.

Once again, I immersed myself in information, reading everything I could within the realm of functional medicine and the endless connections amongst the body’s many systems. You have no idea how much fun this was (and still is)!

As my FDN practice grew, another missing piece of the puzzle became apparent — mindset. Some clients just seemed to think differently than others. After a while, I could almost sense who would follow the program and eventually resolve their health complaints, and who would not. It all revolved around mindset.

Misled…and Misfed w/ Morley Robbins

by Sean Croxton & Morley Robbins

Introducing my main man Morley.

How could you not love the guy?

I first met Morley last year in Vernon Hills, IL as I was co-teaching the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition live course with Reed Davis.

My first recollection of Morley is of him standing up during a break and educating the entire class on the injustices of the FDA.

Right then, I knew he was my kind of guy.

To say he is passionate about real health is an understatement.

If you listen to UW Radio you likely know him as a frequent caller from the 847. Over the last 2 years, I have received many emails from listeners wondering just who Morley is. So, I thought it would be a good idea for you to get to know him.

A couple of months ago, we got together to record a podcast. But since I was so busy finishing my book, I didn’t have a chance to get this out to you. And I was also having a tough time finding a free podcast player that didn’t bombard you with cheesy ads. I finally found one.

This was actually supposed to be an email-list-only podcast. But since there is no UW Radio show scheduled this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday, I decided to make it available to everyone. To receive future exclusive podcasts, enter your email address in the upper right corner of this page.

In this podcast, Morley Robbins and I discuss:

* The roots of his strong passion for health and wellness.
* What he means when he says we have been “misled…and misfed”.
* The issue/item in our food industry that keeps him awake at night.
* The one thing he would change about the American diet if he had a magic wand.
* How, as a health coach, he changes the dietary perspectives of his clients.

Morley and I also discuss the interesting concept behind his forthcoming book. I can’t wait to read it! We’ll definitely have him on UW Radio once it hits the shelves.
