Dr Stephen Hussey


I’m doing great. How are you?



Yeah, really good. really good. I’m very excited about the conversation today. I think our listeners are going to get a huge amount out of this as well. But first up for all of those that perhaps didn’t listen to our first conversation and are not familiar with you, I’d love it if you can just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.

Dr Stephen Hussey


Yeah. So I live in the States. I am a Chiropractor and Functional Medicine Doctor. And I do mostly neuromusculoskeletal stuff in my clinical practice, but I also do a lot of nutrition and I have a master’s in nutrition and functional medicine. And I do a lot of metabolic health and things like that. And as a child I had a lot of inflammatory conditions I would say. Everything from IBS to chronic hives, to asthma, to terrible allergies and things ultimately ended up with type 1 diabetes, autoimmune, my body attack my pancreas and I no longer make insulin.

Dr Stephen Hussey


And that kind of sent me on this path to health. Over time, I started to find out that the way I lived my life had an impact on how I could manage type 1 diabetes. I’d also been told by many physicians that having that I was predisposed to heart disease two to four times increased risk. And so that spurred this, I guess, passion for figuring out how to mitigate heart disease the best I could and also how to manage type 1 the best I could.

Dr Stephen Hussey


And so I’ve just been this, I don’t know, I get a little obsessed with finding those things and obsessed with researching. Because I got a chiropractic education and a master’s in nutrition and I still didn’t feel satisfied and I just wanted to know more and dig in deep. And so that’s what I’ve been doing and I recently wrote this book. I wrote a book before but this is my second book called Understanding the Heart. And it’s just everything that I’ve come to learn about the heart and I’m pretty excited about it.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I'm delighted to welcome Dr. Amy Baxter to the podcast. Dr. Baxter, how are you?



I am doing wonderfully this afternoon for me and morning for you.



Yes. Yeah. Connecting via the internet once again. Thank you so much for sharing some of your time today. But, first up, for all those that may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.



Sure. I am a pediatric emergency doctor by training. I did most of my clinical work in any areas of suffering. So I did a child abuse fellowship, I did pediatrics, I did research in nausea, I invented the BARF scale for children with cancer to be able to say, "That barfing face, that's the one I feel like." Now I am a full-time CEO of a medical device company that blocks out sharp pain.



Wow, fantastic. Well, interesting topic then because pain is very personal, it's very unique to the individual.

I guess first question then when talking about pain, many of us will be subject to pain throughout our days, weeks, lives, whether it be headache, sports injury, leading to perhaps more serious complications where pain is involved. How might we know if our pain is normal, i.e., "Oh, it's just a headache," or we should see a medical professional?
