Over the past year or so, I’ve gotten into podcasts more and more because I love being able to listen and learn while I’m cooking, cleaning, driving, exercising, or taking the dog for a walk.  I wanted to share my current favorites in case you’re looking for ways to learn more about how to improve your health.

The 5 Best Health And Wellness Podcasts You Should Subscribe To


  1. The Model Health Show – A well-rounded show hosted by Shawn Stevenson that deals with a wide variety of topics – so far I’ve listened to episodes on sleep, nutrition, fitness, entrepreneurship, and medicinal mushrooms.  If you have any issues with insomnia, I highly recommend Shawn’s book, Sleep Smarter.
  2. The Genius Life – This one is less than a year old, but I’ve been a fan from the beginning after reading Max Lugavere’s book, Genius Foods.  He interviews the leading experts on ways to keep your brain healthy and prevent Alzheimer’s.
  3. The Doctor’s Farmacy – Dr. Mark Hyman covers so many critical health topics on this show.  One episode that I highly recommend if you’re considering or already taking anti-depressants: Can you beat depression with food?
  4. The Wellness Mama Podcast – A weekly podcast series covering the health topics of real food, stress, sleep, fitness, toxins, natural living, and much more to give you actionable steps to improve your family’s health.  I just started listening to this one recently, but I love what I’ve learned so far, especially Why Everything We Know About Probiotics Is Wrong.
  5. Balanced Bites – Focuses on strategies to stay healthy through Paleo.   The two hosts are funny and also answer listener questions – I love when education can be combined with fun personalities! My favorite episode thus far:  Soy, Goitrogens, & Hypothyroid 

What are your favorite health or fitness related podcasts?  I’d love for you to share below as I’m always looking for more to add to my list.

My #1 tip for staying healthy year-round?  Optimize your Vitamin D levels!  It’s important to get your levels tested at least annually (and sometimes more often).  Get 15% Off Walk-In Lab Vitamin D Tests & Panels!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Honestly never considered Podcasts for my health until now so thanks for that great idea. This month I’d like my main goal to impact my fitness and overall health and this was the perfect place to start on a Monday morning. Thanks for the great read!

  2. Thank you so much for the recommendations – I’ve been listening to self-help / mindset and business podcasts non-stop, LOL…I think it’s time to focus on another area of life for awhile!
