Updated: Apr 17

Dr Mike Michael Israetel Singapore

With the internet providing access to so many health experts and talking heads, we often get asked ‘who can be trusted, to watch or follow online, even to enjoy?’ The answer is not always obvious, as those in the media spotlight have their own area of expertise, biases, even their own unique style of presentation.

Whether you are part of our Singapore or global community, in this series of posts we present some of the key online health leaders whose media channels we enjoy.

Meet Dr. Mike Israetel PhD; physiologist, professor and bodybuilder.

A small disclaimer, we do not necessarily endorse or agree everything that our featured personalities nor their guests might say, but we do enjoy the general direction that they take. Please talk to your doctor, or medical practitioner most familiar with your medical history, before implementing any changes in diet, exercise or lifestyle, especially if you are under treatment.

Want to build up your strength and fitness, or already working on it? Prioritising your own self-care is the vital first step to improving your health and long-term wellbeing. Wherever you are in your journey to health, at The Whole Health Practice we work with you, to turn knowledge and intent into targeted and effective action.

Stay Healthy,
