Dr. Ann is a plant-based dentist, based in Northern California. She serves the Native American population in her county and surrounding areas.

Dr. Ann adopted the whole-food, plant-based lifestyle several years ago, after learning that she had been diagnosed with multiple chronic inflammatory conditions. With this lifestyle, she has seen a reversal in almost all of the conditions and she continues to see improvement. Now, she is an advocate for the plant-based lifestyle and incorporates plant-based nutritional counseling with her patients.

Dr. Ann founded Happi Hippo Plant Organics in 2017, which is an eco-friendly, all-natural, vegan dental and body care company. The combination of her holistic plant-based lifestyle, love of animals, and passion to help fight climate change is how this company was born.

Watch with us as we tour Chef Collin's Home Kitchen and learn about how he is contributing to the Food As Medicine Movement!

As a Chef, I manned the helm of many 4-5 diamond restaurants, wineries, cafes, and hotels, but still was not satiated and craved more from life. 

I went back to school and studied plant-based nutrition as well as enrolled in a Vegan High end cooking program to reteach myself how to cook without dairy, refined sugars, and gluten. 

During this time I steepled in the culture of regenerative farming, food is medicine philosophy, and started to understand the ways of ancient principles of food. 

Essentially I started to cook and eat with the intention to prevent disease. 

In 2020 I became Chef Collin the Culinary Coach and have now dedicated my life to learning and teaching others to cook healthy, by changing their Food Relationship through my D2R Method.

BUY YOUR GREEN TEA HERE: https://bit.ly/SHOPGREENTEA

This season of Thrive Bites will now be on YouTube in addition to all podcast platforms! We are going to host a LIVE Q&A format and my first guest is scheduled to air July 7th, Wed 5 pm PST, and she is a green tea expert. 

Kiyomi's Bio: Desperate to help her husband survive stage III cancer, Kiyomi researched intensively to find a better way of getting the health benefits of green tea. Kiyomi's mission is to share her discoveries with American folks by offering the purest and simplest form of "Ground Green Tea." When asked "why Green Tea," she answers, "Because Green Tea Powder is the simplest and easiest addition anyone can make to his or her diet in order to improve health." She believes a small habitual change could lead to a significant outcome in the long run.

EGCG Correction: "An observed safe level of 704 mg EGCG/day could be considered for GTEs consumed in beverage form."

In this episode of Thrive Bites, I chat with the awesome Dr. Harry Karydes, a trained ER Doc, but also a physician mental health advocate. We talk about his rise to becoming an ER physician, his challenges with burnout and his switch to teaching others how to enhance our mental well-being. Check this out!

Dr. Harry Karydes is an emergency physician, medical toxicologist, and medical director who practices in the Chicagoland area. He understands the issues that physicians face every day. Stress, lack of motivation, and mental fatigue have become commonplace in medicine.

For years, he struggled to keep things balanced while growing at work and thriving at home, and his success came at the expense of his health and family.

He realized that he was beginning to experience burnout. He also saw colleagues and friends endure this silent struggle.

Something needed to change.

Much has been written on the strides we have made toward patient well-being and quality of life. Yet, there is little written on physician wellness. And there are even fewer resources for the struggling physician.

Dr. Karydes has crafted habits that focus on reaching personal and professional goals without sacrificing one for the other.

As a writer and national speaker who has a passion for physician wellness, he helps overwhelmed physicians, residents, and medical students to live a life of focus and balance. 

His mission is to give you the courage and the tools to learn, grow, and thrive in the important areas of your life.

His main platform is at www.medicinerevived.com where he has a blog and podcast.

Her short bio, "My name is Paulina Buraczynski, and am a general pediatrician. I am married to another physician, who is a cardiac electrophysiologist, and have two daughters, a 3-year-old and a 2-month-old. I have lived in few different countries which has sparked my interest in traveling at an early age. I’ve been fortunate to travel to over 55 countries, in hopes of continuing to add to that count, but now with my two daughters. In the last three years, my traveling has changed and I added a new travel buddy - my daughter. I’ve picked up tips and strategies along the way because traveling with kids is an entirely different game."

In this awesome episode of Thrive Bites, I sit down with Dr. Andrea Matsumura who is a sleep specialist and we go over not just the basics, but also why it is vital for us all as a society! You don't want to miss this one!

Dr. Andrea Matsumura was born in San Antonio Texas And attended the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio for medical school. She had a desire to explore and thought she was an east coaster for sure. Little did she know when she did an externship as a fourth-year medical student in Oregon that she would fall in love with the West Coast and all things involving the outdoors. She quickly switched gears and ended up finishing her internal medicine residency in Portland Oregon.

She worked as a hospitalist for a few years and moved into the outpatient care setting as a primary care physician. It was there that her spark for the love of sleep medicine started. While trying to manage chronic medical conditions she quickly realized that sleep is the juggernaut for wellness. 
She went on to complete a fellowship in sleep medicine at Oregon Health and Science University  (OHSU).
 
Dr. Matsumura describes herself as a holistic sleep medicine physician and enjoys public speaking on all things sleep.  Sleep is a vital sign that has yet to be discovered as the key to how everything else is managed in one’s life.

In this very interesting episode of Thrive Bites, I chat with Ron Pratt about what it means to be out-of-state with our physical bodies and our outlook on life. He shares with us his story about going from a corporate trainer to a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner. He shares with us his gems for wellness! Take a listen!

Ronald Pratt understands first hand the impact of stress. After more than a decade working on Wall Street and in Corporate America, Ronald reached career burnout. Years of long hours and late nights had finally caught up with him. Unable to focus and lacking the energy to push forward, Ronald sought help from a number of resources and found a significant benefit from Acupuncture. Ronald got his career back on track. Inspired by how much his health improved, Ronald decided to study Acupuncture.

Now a Licensed Acupuncturist and Lifestyle Medicine expert focused on helping patients optimize wellbeing to combat pain, anxiety, and stress-related conditions, Ronald is Board Certified by the NCCAOM and holds a Master of Acupuncture degree. Additionally, Ronald has a Master of Arts in Counseling and wrote his Thesis on Emotional Intelligence. Prior Ronald worked in Corporate Training, developing and presenting curriculum on Leadership, Management, Sales, Product, and Personal Growth.

Having spoken on international stages and worked with hundreds of patients in private practice, Ronald has always been a champion for empowering individuals with their wellbeing - physical, mental, and emotional. Ronalds background in Corporate Training combined with his Acupuncture practice uniquely qualifies him to help patients learn to optimize stress in aspects of life to reduce dis-ease, pain, and anxiety.

With extensive post-graduate training in Five Element Acupuncture, Meridian Balance Acupuncture, and Natural Functional Nutrition.  Ronald continues to grow and cultivate his practitioner skillset.  When not at work, Ronald enjoys connecting with nature, cycling, hiking, practicing yoga, exploring local parks with his dog, spending time with friends and family, cooking, and exploring the world through travel.
