Dr. Bryan Walsh has been studying human physiology and nutrition for over 25 years and has been educating others in health for 20 of those years. When he isn’t teaching, he spends his time pouring over the latest research and synthesizing his findings into practical information for health practitioners to use with their clients.

He currently delivers courses in biochemistry, physiology, and pathophysiology as an Instructor at Maryland University of Integrated Health.

In addition, he serves as the Co-Director of Education at Biogenetix, a cutting-edge nutraceutical company, where he formulates products, creates educational modules, and presents to clinicians throughout the U.S.

He is a licensed, board-certified Naturopathic Doctor and has been seeing patients throughout the U.S. for the past decade.

  1. I listened to about half the interview and really enjoyed it. I have been the term “adrenal fatigue” popping up on pinterest linking to different blogs for a while. I figured even if it is something to worry about, there are other things I am working on first. However, I was glad to see this interview about it.
    Honestly, though, my favorite part is at the end when Dr. Walsh talks about health in relation to his kids. I have 2 small children and a baby. I don’t know a whole lot of people who care about their health and are also parents with young children. People either seem to care and not have kids, or have kids and think their health can’t be good, so why try until the kids are grown up. He cares about his health, but accepts and embraces that it is different for him now than before kids, but that doesn’t mean he does nothing and complain about his kids.

  2. I really enjoyed this interview. Great questions, Chris. I especially appreciate how Dr. Walsh talks about his belief that there is no bigger impact on health that the mind…. and that’s why I teach people to use HeartMath stress relief to put the priorities of life in order. Stress is also about worrying – and my quote on that is : “worrying is like PREpaying a toll for a bridge you may never cross.”
    And thankfully, for most people the things that they worry about are mostly unimportant, or can be managed without worrying about it! Focus on gratitude and watch your health improve.

  3. This man is brilliant. Well interview too Chris.
