Being intentional with your
health, your movement and your goal setting is key in maintaining a
healthy lifestyle. In this unique episode of The Biofilm Factor,
Dr. Ryan Nolan talks with Mark Rogers, founder of the Simply Human
podcast. They step back from dentistry and take a holistic approach
towards healthy living by understanding the connection between
movement, sleep and nutrition. In addition, they discuss the
growing struggle to maintain a daily range of motion and how
misinformation can manipulate society’s view of health. “Healthy”
isn’t just a number. It’s not how you look. It’s how you feel. For
