Hi! I'm Austin, an internal medicine doctor who now focuses on helping people improve their health through better decisions, neuroscience, and lifestyle interventions. I believe our current model of healthcare is unsustainable, and that this is a result of missing true causes of our major issues: poor decision-making, rewired neurochemistry and bad mental health. I explore these topics in my podcast, my articles, my book Brain Wash and in research I've published in the medical literature.
I'm a big fan of nature exposure as both a hobby and as a medical intervention. I also believe in the power of sleep, empathy, and an anti-inflammatory diet as strategies to improve our physical and mental health.
I don't have all the answers. My goal is to keep learning. I believe that as humans, we have an incredible potential to heal our bodies and our brains if we just ask the right questions. Join me in the journey!
