How to Continually Improve Your Brain Health, Body Composition, Energy, and Athletic Performance Using a Simple Blood Test and Machine Learning

Nov. 12, 2021

Each month for the past year we’ve offered our bloodsmart.ai group program. It’s an opportunity to use machine learning to predict—from a pretty simple blood test—what is likely happening inside your body (and what might be going wrong) along with expert feedback on the results from NBT Scientific Director and Coach, Megan Hall and me. The program has been very popular, not to mention a lot of fun, and people are going through more than once to measure their ongoing progress.

On this podcast, Megan provides detailed feedback on the bloodsmart.ai report belonging to NBT Coach Clay Higgins. What you’ll hear is very similar to what goes on during our group coaching sessions. It’s a review of exactly what’s going well and where there’s opportunity for improvement - along with specific steps to take right now to improve overall health, based on the data, symptoms, and personal history.

If you’d like to participate in a group program please email NBT support for details and be sure to let us know where in the world you live so we can tailor our response to your needs.
