Episode #50: Dr. Anthony Gustin: Rituals & Rights of Passage, Doing Hard Things, Personal Fulfillment, Regenerative Agriculture
This episode of the Thinking Health Podcast features a great friend of mine, Dr. Anthony Gustin. Dr. Gustin is the founder of Perfect Keto and Equip and is actively building out many different businesses aiming at fixing the food system, improving the health of our society, and correcting the damage that happens to our environment daily.
In this episode, we talk about Dr. Gustin's wedding which I had the pleasure of attending. We discussed how this wedding was much different than any wedding I had attended and how important rituals and rights of passage have traditionally been for our society as a whole.
We also talk about the benefit of doing hard things. How our society as a whole has become comfortable with being comfortable and is content with not challenging ourselves to get better. We also discuss how this is a big reason why people are unhappy. They are not living in accordance with their human biology and what is necessary for fulfillment and personal growth.
Another topic we dive into is the importance of supporting entrepreneurs who have causes that aim to better our world. We discuss one category of these causes, regenerative farming, and how Anthony is hoping to continue helping spread the word on the importance of this movement and help others take action in supporting it.
Dr. Gustin has always been a mentor for me and has played a major role in shaping my thought processes and trajectory in life. I think you guys will catch a glimpse of that in this episode and hopefully experience something similar yourselves!
