“Stop comparing your life with someone else's. You are in the right place, at the right time!”
— Marco Tesi

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Marco Tesi. Marco has 10 years of experience working with people and creating holistic treatment plans, which include unique breathing and movement techniques to retrain your body and mind to achieve better health. He has a Bachelor degree in Sports Science, and a Master in Sport and Human Health Development.

Recently, I have become very interested in breathing – I know we all do it, but I wanted to find a way to do it better. I started doing the Wim Hof method after Wim Hof was on the show, but since then I've started trying to find other ways that we can improve our breathing, and thus our health.

So, Marco came on the show to talk to us about the importance of breathing and, I know this sounds ridiculous, how to do it right – and it turns out we all have something new to learn.

I know you guys are going to enjoy this episode with Marco Tesi, because I did as well!

    Great interview with Dr. Greg Wells! He mentioned a doctor from Colorado around the 42:30 point of the podcast, discussing turmeric and black pepper. I couldn’t make out the doctor’s name. Can you provide me with his full name and maybe his website or contact info. Interested in his products.

    Maybe oarts of the things he has to share are right, maybe not. If I look at him which impact his nurturing and living style has on himself I see a very old looking man! He is year 1973!! That is not old and he looks definitly much older!! If I would not know his birthyear I would guess that he is in his mid-60ies!! A bit concering for someone who claims his lifestyle is suitable for a long life, isn’t it?
