Dr. Hussey is a Chiropractor, Functional Medicine Practitioner, and Online Health Coach. He’s the author of  a new book called Understanding the Heart: Uncommon Insights into Our Most Commonly Diseased Organ. In this episode, we discuss the most common myths surrounding heart health and we dig deep into nutrition, movement, and mindset, and more. Over to Dr. Hussey. Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Steven Hussey back to the podcast. Dr. Hussey, how are you? Dr Stephen Hussey (01:22) I’m doing great. How are you? Stu (01:23) Yeah, really good. really good. I’m very excited about the conversation today. I think our listeners are going to get a huge amount out of this as well. But first up for all of those that perhaps didn’t listen to our first conversation and are not familiar with you, I’d love it if you can just tell us a little bit about yourself, please. Dr Stephen Hussey (01:43) Yeah. So I live in the States. I am a Chiropractor and Functional Medicine Doctor. And I do mostly neuromusculoskeletal stuff in my clinical practice, but I also do a lot of nutrition and I have a master’s in nutrition and functional medicine. And I do a lot of metabolic health and things like that. And as a child I had a lot of inflammatory conditions I would say. Everything from IBS to chronic hives, to asthma, to terrible allergies and things ultimately ended up with type 1 diabetes, autoimmune, my body attack my pancreas and I no longer make insulin. Dr Stephen Hussey (02:27) And that kind of sent me on this path to health. Over time, I started to find out that the way I lived my life had an impact on how I could manage type 1 diabetes. I’d also been told by many physicians that having that I was predisposed to heart disease two to four times increased risk. And so that spurred this, I guess, passion for figuring out how to mitigate heart disease the best I could and also how to manage type 1 the best I could. Dr Stephen Hussey (02:58) And so I’ve just been this, I don’t know, I get a little obsessed with finding those things and obsessed with researching. Because I got a chiropractic education and a master’s in nutrition and I still didn’t feel satisfied and I just wanted to know more and dig in deep. And so that’s what I’ve been doing and I recently wrote this book. I wrote a book before but this is my second book called Understanding the Heart. And it’s just everything that I’ve come to learn about the heart and I’m pretty excited about it. For full transcript and interview:  https://180nutrition.com.au/180-tv/dr-hussey-interview2/
