EPISODE 053:UNORTHODOC - AN INTERVIEW WITH CORY ANNIS
Dom Goucher:
Hello everyone, and welcome to
this week’s
PreneurCast. This isEpisode 53, the first of our newyear. Last week was the 52ndepisode, our first year complete,
and we’re moving into a new
 year.
Pete Williams:
Did you get the gift I sent for our anniversary, Dom?
Dom:
What might that have been,Pete?
Pete:
A big diamond and a big bunch of roses.
Dom:
I think that might have gotten lost in the post.
Pete:
Damn it.
Dom:
Welcome everyone toPreneurCast.
I’m Dom Goucher 
and he, very strangely, is PeteWilliams. To start the new year and a great topic to start our new year with, this week, Pete,you interviewed Cory Annis, the
Unorthodoc. It’s a great title, Ilove it. “Mobile medicine for themodern entrepreneur,” as it says
on her website. This is afantastic topic, really.
It’s
a shame I missed the call;
but I’m glad you had a chat with her because health and
well-being is one of thosethings, as Cory says on her website, very often it becomes a secondaryconsideration. B
ut it’s vital to the success of an entrepreneur. So how did you come
across Cory, Pete?
Pete:
Through a couple of mutual friends and sort of stumbled across her via Twitter,funnily enough,
following some mutual friends’ Twit
ter feeds who mentioned somestuff that Cory was talking about. So Cory and I had some conversations, andthought it would be good to actually record one of those conversations and put ithere on the podcast. As you said, so many entrepreneurs are working so hard toget their business, their idea either off the ground or to the next level.B
ut there’s so much internal stuff that people don’t think about when it comes to the
health and well-being
to make sure they’re as efficient and effective as possible
. So
I thought I’d grab Cory on the line for a little bit and have a chat about a whole
range of things. That when it comes to health and well-being, for entrepreneursparticularly because we all face so much demand, that it can take a bit of a toll. Itwas
a really cool conversation I really enjoyed. We’ll obviously hear a lot of it on the
call with us, a range of stuff we spoke about.
Dom:
Great. Well,
let’s get straight into it and we’ll come back after the call.

Pete:
Sounds good.
[Pete's interview with Cory Annis starts]
 
Cory Annis:
 
I’m Dr. Cory Annis. I’ve been practicing medicine for 20 years
. Unorthodoc is my
attempt to take medicine, the kind of medicine, the quality of medicine that I’vebeen doing for years and put it in a delivery form that’s acces
sible to everybody, butmost particularly, I got the most interested in taking care of entrepreneurs. Becausein my own bricks-and-mortar practice, I found that the people who really neededattention and time were often my entrepreneurs.But they were the kind of people who needed to be able to make an appointmenton a dime or talk to me from Singapore or talk to me at 6:00 in the morning. They
couldn’t keep an appointment they made three days from now, let alone three
weeks from now. So I realize that the American healthcare system was reallygetting in the way, helping the very people they expect to power the engine of 
economic recovery and that’s sort of my global reason for doing it.My individual reason for doing it is I’m an entrepreneur and I think
thatentrepreneurs are incredibly exciting people to work with. Some have great health,some have terrible health; but mostly none of them have access to a physician that
they can just talk to and say, “Do I need to be tweaking this? Am I doing this well
?
 Am I going to make sure that I’m around to spend all this wealth I’m killing myself toacquire?”
 And I love the mood of entrepreneurs. I love the way they tick
 –
the crazyones and the tame ones. And
I’m happy and lucky to count myself among them.
Pete:
T
hat’s very, very cool. That’s what interests me when I first stumbled across you
;obviously, being an entrepreneur myself. A lot of the listeners and readers areentrepreneurs as well. When it comes to health entrepreneurship, you mentionedthis, people are killing themselves to make an outcome whether it be financial or whatever it is; that a lot of people, they get into a business.T
hey start a project and they just work and they don’t stop
 
 –
miss lunches, workthrough nights. You hear all the crazy stories about entrepreneurs who have three-day benders where they keep working and things like that. A
nd that’s not obviously
sustainable or healthy.
Cory:
Of course doctors are nothing like that, right?
Pete:
Exactly. T
hat’s why I wanted to
have a conversation with youabout a couple of differentthings. What are some of thebasics around good health thatentrepreneurs can actually workinto their schedules and their rituals just to make sure theycan sustain a high level of output? Not necessarily working72 hours straight, but just beingat work consistently withoutgetting sick and be able tosustain that and get the most out of their day?Like most things on the PreneurCast podcast, on the blog and things like that, I'dreally like to fully delve into the meat of something, set the context and set some
foundation. It’s really interesting that a l
ot of people I talk to
 –
I'll put my hand up inthis, as much as I look after myself and know a bit about what needs to go into abody, particularly when I was doing my Ironman training recently. But I think what isa good place to start is just define a lot of different terms that have flung aroundwhen it comes to health and nutrition and food.

Obviously, protein and carbs are pretty stock standard conversation points. A lot of people understand where that comes from, but you hear a lot of things like aminoacids, and different vitamin types, and low blood sugar, and all these differentterms.
I’d like to define some of these before we get into the conversation too
deep.
What’s the difference between things like amino acids
? What does that do to thebody compared to different vitamins? W
hen they say you’ve got low blood sugar 
and that gives you different energy, how does that affect people? Can you describesome of those terms and what they all mean?
Cory:
Sure. Well, talking aboutnutrition itself, the simplebuilding blocks that most peoplehave heard of are proteins,carbohydrates and fats. Thething is that each one of thosecomponents is made up of smaller building blocks thatsome of them good and some of them bad. Our Western dietseems to be working steadily todecrease the quality of thebuilding blocks in all three of those components, proteins, carbohydrates and fats.So amino acids would be the particles or the chemicals, the substrates, theenzymes that make up proteins. Proteins are a pretty complicated food group in
that you have 20 amino acids that the human body cannot manufacture and they’re
called essential amino acids. They must be eaten. We can create a lot of theprotein that we need inside our body;
but there’s a lot that we can’t
,
and that’s what
makes up the essential amino acids.Now the important part of these essential amino acids is they can be eatenincompletely. You can take 15 or 12, or five, of the amino acids and use them andyour body can use that partially but not completely. Some examples of completeproteins would be meat for example. Animal flesh is a complete protein, a lot of forms of dairy and eggs. But the incomplete proteins that can be combined,vegetarians fear-not, the incomplete proteins can be combined with one another if you put the right sets of foods together to make complete proteins.T
his is what builds muscle, which I’m sure people who train for Ironman
competition
s are really interested in. But proteins, whether they’re in their components or they’re all put together as a complete protein, the component of our 
diet that helps us actually build muscle, build protein-based tissue, build many of the important proteins that carry energy around our body. But in our stomachs, theyare also the things
that allow us to hold on and slowly burn the nutrients that we’re
eating.So protein especially for a really physically active person probably needs to beincluded in everyt
hing somebody eats, and I’m talking here about complete
proteins. You can put them together however you want. But at the end, the proteinhas to be something that puts all of the particles together.
Pete:
So for an entrepreneur who is generally classed as a knowledge worker 
 –
 
they’re
not actually out there running, lifting, doing manly sort of activities; sex, I'll put thatin there, but who are doing knowledge work-kind of stuff. That means that proteinsand amino acids are not as important as other types of nutrition and food?
