85: The Real Meaning of Self-Care and How To Maintain Health for the Long Run with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon

by neeta bhushan


Alright loves, I know you are SO busy. I get it, same here. Especially if you’re a mama, a business owner, or a career gal, you’re pretty much doing ALL the things. So, how the heck are you supposed to incorporate fitness into your daily schedule? And, are you someone who only looks at fitness and health as a means to stay in shape? If so, I know you’re not alone. But my guest today (and fellow mama), Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, is here to shift your thinking and share why consistent exercise (in particular, resistance training) is so much more than a way to stay fit — it’s crucial for your longevity. If you know you want to lead a full, healthy, and happy life, then you need to tune in to hear what she has to say. 

Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is a Washington University fellowship-trained physician in Nutritional Science and Geriatrics and is board certified in Family Medicine. She is the founder of the Institute for Muscle Centric-Medicine™ and has a private practice that services the leaders, innovators, mavericks, and executives in their prospective fields. In addition, Dr. Lyon also works closely with Special Operations Military. Her goal is to change the paradigm of medicine from obesity-focused to muscle-centric and change the way we think about health and medicine with high scientific integrity.

What we talk about in this episode… 

– The root cause of poor health

– How Dr. Gabrielle incorporates fitness into her day (even with young kids!) and hacks you can use 

– How to plan for your health in the years to come 

– What is muscle-centric-medicine
