Hacking Inflammation – Interventions With Dave

Cindy Fraley-Hunter

Learn to think about health problems differently, ask questions that lead to answers, and upgrade your biology.


In this Episode of The Human Upgrade™...

… Dave talks with Cindy Fraley-Hunter about system-level inflammation and her fear of having an early heart attack like her father (he was 50) because they have such similar genes.

Cindy thought she was healthy until after the birth of her daughter at 42. She was constantly tired. Her physician told her that was just to be expected because she was a geriatric pregnancy. That unhelpful advice ignored her body functioning and lacked actionable solutions.

She then survived a case of MRSA and received Hashimoto’s and rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis. She continued to have high cholesterol and a high CAD calcium heart score. She’s scared her life will be cut short.

Feeling like conventional medicine is failing her, Cindy has turned to supplements instead of prescription drugs. She says she’s “embracing biohacking to save my life.”

In this “Interventions With Dave” episode, Dave walks Cindy through her most recent labs and other test results. They look at her health concerns through a new lens and discuss actionable next steps. Don’t miss the “Links & Resources” section below for specific information.

“What's the No. 1 risk for a cardiac event? It's inflammation. And one of the things that we don't talk about a lot is that underactive thyroid function is a major risk for cardiac events, too.”
