About Antony Haynes

Antony Haynes has been in private practice for over 28 years and is one of the most experienced Registered Nutritional Therapists and Functional Medicine practitioners in the UK, having seen over 18,000 clients. He’s a health educator, author, and expert in addressing infections that underlie autoimmunity. In today’s interview we discuss counteracting sarcopenia, age-related muscle decline in mass, strength, and function. Put more positively, we focus on the importance of dynamic muscle training, how you can test for sarcopenia, how much protein you really need (hint: it’s more than you are likely getting), and how to build daily habits to support a long, healthy life.
