#7 – Callum Cowan — Naturopathic vs. Western Medicine, Mitochondrial Health and Why We Need More Fiber

On this episode of the #CLP we sit down with Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine and owner of Phenom High-Performance Medicine, Callum Cowan. We were introduced to Callum through mutual friends (fighters), who had begun to work with him on their performance and were raving about the results. This was one of our favourite episodes to record from season 1, the information is in-depth yet easily implementable. We discuss everything from Callum narrowly avoiding dentistry school to mitochondrial health, fight trips to Brazil and fiber. It gets a touch sciency at times but please stick with it, the passion that Cal displays discussing the industry and his clients is wonderful and we can’t wait to have him on for round 2. Rate and leave a review!

On this episode of the #CLP we sit down with former National team Badminton player, serial entrepreneur and tech investor, Prakash Chand. Kash has been a friend and mentor for the past five years and it was great to be able to sit down and pick his brain. We discuss his career ending injury and how business became a substitute for the hard work he was putting in on the court and why athletes love biz. We also dive into his relationship with education coming from and an East Indian family and why he decided to get rid of social media. We loved the interview and hope you do as well!
