Healthy View Radio Episode 30: Anxiety, Addiction and Depression with Dr. Robert Lustig

Anxiety and depression are an epidemic in the United States. Medications for these conditions are on the rise, but are they helping us improve our mental health? To answer this question and more, best-selling author and Professor of Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of California, Dr. Robert Lustig, joins us to share the difference between pleasure and happiness, how sugar addiction affects dopamine and serotonin, and his four C’s for achieving true happiness.

We also hear from Omar Cumberbatch, founder of The Health Coach Academy and host of the Health Coach Academy Radio Show, for a male perspective on the female-dominated health-coaching industry.
