Heads Up Health was founded by a team of health-conscious technology experts on the simple concept that being healthy doesn’t have to be complicated. We saw a world of disjointed medical records, underutilized health tracking technologies and abundant, but poorly managed, health data. We felt that intelligent software could provide the perfect solution.
Based on our belief that well-organized data holds the key to optimal health, we have created a central space where you can manage and explore your own.
In this episode, Alessandro Ferretti joins us to discuss a ketogenic diet (lifestyle), what a “healthy” keto diet looks like, chronobiology of eating windows, the top three reasons a keto diet fails, and much more in this rich episode. We also get caught up on Alessandro’s latest research and get advice on how to have long-term success with a ketogenic lifestyle.

Ever wonder what metrics correlate with world championship performance? Don Moxley, sport scientist at The Ohio State University, shares details about the exact tests he uses that have contributed to national titles and gold medals with his athletes.
Are all lab tests created equal? Chris Kelly breaks down the lab tests that get the best results for his athletes and health clients.
We talk blood work, hormone and cortisol testing, stool testing, and how to make better decisions given certain lab results. Join me in this great discussion with Chris Kelly of Nourish Balance Thrive!
In this episode, guest Dr. Marco Altini joins us to share some of the nitty gritty of how Data Science plays a role in Heart Rate Variability analysis and other types of quantifiable research and self experimentation. We discuss data confidence, coefficient of variation, cross-sectional data vs. longitudinal HRV data, absolute vs. relative HRV, why to focus on RMSSD Time-Domain HRV over Frequency-Domain or Non-Linear, HRV during pregnancy, and much more.
In this episode, Alessandro Ferretti joins us to discuss blood glucose, ketones, ketogenic diets, and of course how it all relates to health, performance and Heart Rate Variability. We also cover some useful topics such as how to use HRV for food sensitivity testing, how to establish a personal glucose baseline and when best to measure blood glucose, and ideal ketone thresholds for exercise and training.
Training for a world championship or the Olympics? Not many people make it to that level, but Dr. Daniel Plews and Professor Paul Laursen join us to share what it’s like to train for world class competitions. We cover a lot including HRV patterns of various training phases, acute to chronic ratio relationship to injury, when to establish an HRV baseline in an endurance program, preparing for Kona Ironman World Championships and Olympics, diet choices, the risk of academia, and much more.
Andrew Flatt round 2: We discuss the role of HRV on a competition day, injury potential in relation to HRV, hydration, plasma volume, how to effectively implement HRV for sports and training, and when not to use HRV monitoring.
Andrew Flatt goes deep into the research and application of HRV monitoring for athletes and sports teams. Andrew works extensively with elite level athletes and is one of the emerging names in athlete monitoring research.
Has your body ever seemed to just glitch or not function correctly for a seemingly unknown reason? You’re not exactly debilitated, but sometimes you’re just not reaching your optimum potential either?
Dr. Eldred breaks down how to quantify when certain aspects of modern life are holding you back or even dragging you down. Dive into which numbers to pay attention to in order to reach your optimum potential.
Implementing HRV or other biomarkers with your coach/client?
Mike Nelson breaks down how to be more effective in both online and in-person coaching when it comes to using data and self-quantifying metrics like Heart Rate Variability.
Mike’s PhD focused on both HRV and Metabolic Flexibility, and he’s known for his successful online coaching of remote clients ranging from elite bodybuilding and powerlifting to general health and weight loss.
Clinical Exercise Physiologist, Kinesiologist, and Osteopath in training, Greg Elliott shares his experience in hunting for, quantifying, and then optimizing the markers that increase his patients health and performance, reduce their pain, and restore optimal function.
