ExecLevel Wellness was founded to capitalize on the experiences of Randall and Amy Nelson. In common, they were raised in small rural communities, moved to Arizona for school and ultimately stayed there for their careers. Each spent > 20-years in industry/academics, with their careers culminating in executive-level positions. Success in these roles has allowed them to retire at relatively young age and devote themselves to more fully understanding Wellness and sharing their findings.

Libido is such an interesting (and complex) experience. Because of this it can be affected by so many things. And we’re not just talking about the obvious sex hormone testosterone here. Although testosterone levels can have a big (yes BIG) effect on sex drive there are a lot of subtle things that can[…]
Of course, listen to what your doctor says. And also listen to what your body says. We both know that what you eat and how you move can make a HUGE improvement in some of the symptoms of menopause. Not to mention how common it is for ladies to gain weight at[…]
Weight loss advice is so common (and contentious) now. There are competing opinions everywhere. I say, forget about “who’s right” and let’s focus on “what’s right.” Because what gets results is what I’m focusing on in this post. I respect you too much to make empty promises and try to sell you[…]
Hippocrates said, “All disease begins in the gut.” And while this may not be 100% true for every disease in every person, more and more research shows that our gut (digestive system) has a bigger role in many diseases than we used to think. And we’re not just talking about heartburn, constipation, diarrhea,[…]
You may feel tired, cold or that you’ve gained weight. Maybe your digestion seems a bit more “sluggish”. You may be convinced that your metabolism is slow. Why does this happen? Why do metabolic rates slow down? What can slow my metabolism? Metabolism includes all of the biochemical reactions in[…]
You knew there was a bit of an over-emphasis (border-lining on obsession) about cholesterol, right? Before we jump into some myths let’s make sure we’re on the same page when it comes to what exactly cholesterol is. The first thing we need to understand is that, in the chemical sense, cholesterol is[…]
You totally want to ditch your scale, don’t you? You may have this weird kind of relationship with your “weight”. I mean, it doesn’t define you (obviously). What you weigh can matter but only to a certain extent. Let’s look at your waist circumference (well…you look at yours and I’ll[…]
Have you said “bye bye” to sleeping through the night? Are you feeling exhausted or “running on stress hormones” all day? Do not fear, I have some great tips (and an amazing recipe) for you! The science of sleep is fascinating, complicated and growing Sleep is this daily thing that[…]

This word “metabolism” is thrown around a lot these days. You know that if yours is too slow you might gain weight. But what exactly does this all mean? Well technically “metabolism” is the word to describe all of the biochemical reactions in your body. It’s how you take in nutrients and[…]
So, after reading the recent clickbait headlines by the mainstream media on the presumed deadly effects of coconut oil, I actually did what most scientists (and people concerned with their health) should do – I read the report and who the authors were funded by. I also read a number of the underlying supporting scientific[…]
ELW 30 Day Boot Camp Before Boot Camp, I struggled with not having consistent high energy levels and motivation. As a result, I felt lazy and like I wasn’t utilizing all my time wisely.
