Description

We are seeing an ever-increasing burden of chronic disease, primarily driven by our food and food system. This is perpetuated by agricultural, food and health care policies that don’t support health. We need to rethink disease and reimagine a food system and a health care system the protects health, unburdens the economy from the weight of obesity and chronic disease, protects the environment, helps reverse climate change and creates a nation of healthy children and citizens. This podcast is a place for deep conversations about the critical issues of our time in the space of health, wellness, food and politics. New episodes are released every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning. I hope you'll join me.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, Paleovalley, and Mitopure.Many of us turn to food to cope with feelings, then we beat ourselves up. Personally, I’m guilty of turning to food when I’m exhausted and then feeling bad about not making great choices or eating when I wasn’t truly hungry. But what we don’t realize is that emotional eating is natural and inborn, and it’s not a matter of having too little willpower. The healing process means getting unstuck from negative patterns, reframing our inner dialogue, and acknowledging the different parts of us and what they’re each asking for. Feeling guilty and disempowered isn’t doing us any good. Today I’m excited to sit down with a leading expert in the field of emotional eating and a good friend, Marc David. Marc David, M.A., is the bestselling author of the books, Nourishing Wisdom: A Mind Body Approach to Nutrition and Well-Being and The Slow Down Diet: Eating for Pleasure, Energy, and Weight Loss, a frequent speaker and consultant, and host of the celebrated Psychology of Eating Podcast. Marc is also the Founder of The Institute for the Psychology of Eating, the world’s only health coaching program devoted to teaching the principles of Dynamic Eating Psychology and Mind Body Nutrition. This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, Paleovalley, and Mitopure.Rupa Health is a place where Functional Medicine practitioners can access more than 2,000 specialty lab tests from over 20 labs like DUTCH, Vibrant America, Genova, and Great Plains.

This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker, Mitopure, and Pique.Many people are confused about how much protein they should be eating and where to get it. Adequate protein is vital in building muscle mass, an essential component of maintaining a healthy weight.

Research shows that higher protein intake is correlated to better body composition, insulin control, satiation, and more.In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, Dr. David Heber, and Dr. Frank Lipman about why it’s necessary to get adequate protein in your diet every day and how to do that, whether you’re a meat-eater or not.Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is an integrative physician who completed her fellowship in nutritional sciences and geriatrics at Washington University, St. Louis.

What I’ve discovered has blown my mind and changed the way I approach my own health and the health of my patients.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Pendulum.Of all the things we do each day, breathing is arguably the most important. While breathing’s most important job is to literally keep us alive, breathing can help in many more ways than just survival, including activating your parasympathetic nervous system, which helps slow your heart rate and lower your blood pressure.In today’s episode, I talk with James Nestor, Dr. Louis Ignarro, Wim Hof, and Dr. Jim Gordon about using breathing to support your health.James Nestor is an author and journalist who has written for Scientific American, Outside, The New York Times, and more. His latest book, Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, was an instant New York Times bestseller.

His groundbreaking research on nitric oxide paved the way for—among other innovations—Viagra. He is an award-winning Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Molecular & Medical Pharmacology at the University of California, Los Angeles, and has his PhD in pharmacology.Wim Hof, also known as “The Iceman,” holds multiple world records for his feats of endurance and exposure to cold.

The benefits of Wim’s method, now practiced by tens of thousands, have been validated by eight university research studies.Dr. James Gordon, author of Transforming Trauma: The Path to Hope and Healing, is a Harvard-educated psychiatrist and the founder and CEO of the nonprofit Center for Mind-Body Medicine in Washington, DC.

How And Why We Age

How And Why We Age

2023-01-2030:31

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and ButcherBox.Exciting discoveries emerging from the field of aging research are pointing to a radically new approach to how we deal with getting older. Science is getting to the root cause of why aging is often accompanied by a decline in function and decrepitude. If we understand the why—the root causes and the changes they trigger in our biology, in our interconnected web of molecules and cells and tissues—then we can transform our health and well-being and extend our lives, both our healthspan and our life span. In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I discuss how and why we age. What I’ve discovered has blown my mind and changed the way I approach my own health and the health of my patients. I’ve compiled it all into a new book called Young Forever, which comes out on February 21, 2023.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, Beekeeper’s Naturals, and Levels. We’re in the midst of a psychedelic renaissance. Compounds that have long been considered recreational drugs by conventional standards are finally being recognized through science as powerful tools for overcoming hard-to-treat health issues, like PTSD, depression, addiction, and more. Mental health problems are the number one driver of indirect healthcare costs, loss of productivity, and diminished quality of life. Yet, we aren’t very successful at treating them with modern medicine. This is a pivotal moment for turning the treatment of mental health around as we explore psychedelic medicine.Today, I’m excited to talk to a leading expert and advocate in the field of psychedelic medicine, Rick Doblin. Rick Doblin, Ph.D., is the founder and executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). He received his doctorate in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. His professional goal is to help develop legal contexts for the beneficial uses of psychedelics and marijuana, primarily as prescription medicines but also for personal growth for otherwise healthy people, and eventually to become a legally licensed psychedelic therapist. This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, Beekeeper’s Naturals, and Levels. Rupa Health is a place where Functional Medicine practitioners can access more than 2,000 specialty lab tests from over 20 labs like DUTCH, Vibrant America, Genova, and Great Plains.

This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker, Athletic Greens, and Paleovalley. Until recently, the most popular approach to treating Alzheimer’s has been to focus on managing the symptoms in the brain. Now brain experts and neurologists know that a better, more effective approach to helping Alzheimer’s patients requires a full-body assessment with all-encompassing, highly individualized treatment that includes improving the microbiome, a healthy diet, plenty of exercise, hormonal balance, adequate sleep, and more.In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Richard Isaacson, Dhru Purohit, and Dr. Dale Bredesen about why Alzheimer’s is not just a disease of the brain, but one of the entire body.Dr. Richard Isaacson serves as Director of the Center for Brain Health and Director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic (APC) at Florida Atlantic University’s Schmidt College of Medicine. He previously served as Director of the APC at the Weill Cornell Memory Disorders Program, Assistant Dean of Faculty Development, and associate professor of neurology at Weill Cornell Medicine & NewYork-Presbyterian. He remains an adjunct associate professor of neurology in the Department of Neurology at Weill Cornell. Prior to that, he served as associate professor of clinical neurology, Vice-Chair of Education, and Education Director of the McKnight Brain Institute in the Department of Neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry. His podcast, The Dhru Purohit Podcast, is a top 50 global health podcast with over 30 million unique downloads. His interviews focus on the inner workings of the brain and the body and feature the brightest minds in wellness, medicine, and mindset. Dr. Dale Bredesen is internationally recognized as an expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The End of Alzheimer's, The End of Alzheimer's Program, and his latest book, The First Survivors of Alzheimer's: How Patients Recovered Life and Hope in Their Own Words.This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker, Athletic Greens, and Paleovalley. InsideTracker is a personalized health and wellness platform like no other.

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and BiOptimizers.Modern medicine treats each individual disease as if it were a distinct entity separate from everything else that happens in the body. Rather than study the root causes and underlying mechanisms of aging, we look for drugs to block abnormal processes and suppress symptoms. Functional Medicine provides a new road map for healthy aging—one in which we don’t view all diseases of aging as different things. In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I discuss why we need to reframe our concept of aging, how and why we age the way we do, and what to do about it. What I’ve discovered has blown my mind and changed the way I approach my own health and the health of my patients. I’ve compiled it all into a new book called Young Forever, which comes out on February 21, 2023.

Investing our time and energy into our relationships might be the key. Loneliness is a main measure of unhappiness, and it also happens to be a stressor and risk factor for disease. I’m so excited to talk to Dr. Rober Waldinger on today’s podcast episode, all about fostering better relationships to live a longer, happier, and healthier life. Dr. Robert Waldinger is a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development at Massachusetts General Hospital, and cofounder of the Lifespan Research Foundation.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and InsideTracker. Blood sugar is one aspect of our biology that has major implications for how well we feel and function on a daily basis. When it is out of balance and our insulin spikes, it can set us up for health problems down the road. Luckily, there are many simple, realistic hacks that can help to successfully manage blood sugar without leaving you feeling deprived. In today’s episode, I talk with Jessie Inchauspé, Max Lugavere, and Dr. Casey Means about the best hacks to reduce insulin spikes and why managing your blood sugar is necessary if you want to be healthy. Jessie Inchauspé holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from King's College London and a master’s degree in biochemistry from Georgetown University. Her work at a genetic analysis start-up in Silicon Valley made her realize that, as the key to good health, food habits beat genetics. In her first book, Glucose Revolution, Jessie shares her startling discovery about the essential role of blood sugar in every aspect of our lives, from cravings to fertility, and the surprising hacks to optimize it while still eating the foods we love. Max Lugavere is a health and science journalist and the author of the New York Times bestseller Genius Foods: Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive While Protecting Your Brain for Life, now published in 10 languages around the globe. His sophomore book, also a bestseller, is called The Genius Life: Heal Your Mind, Strengthen Your Body, and Become Extraordinary. Max is the host of a number-one iTunes health and wellness podcast called The Genius Life. His new cookbook is Genius Kitchen. Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and cofounder of metabolic health company Levels, an associate editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a guest lecturer at Stanford University. Her mission is to maximize human potential and reverse the epidemic of preventable chronic disease by empowering individuals with tools that can facilitate a deep understanding of our bodies and inform personalized and sustainable dietary and lifestyle choices. This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and InsideTracker.  Rupa Health is a place where Functional Medicine practitioners can access more than 2,000 specialty lab tests from over 20 labs.

This episode is sponsored by Athletic Greens and InsideTracker.The array of frustrating symptoms that come along with autoimmune diseases leave those who are suffering constantly looking for answers. Simply put, autoimmune diseases—like rheumatoid arthritis, celiac sprue, inflammatory bowel, type 1 diabetes, Hashimoto’s, Graves’, lupus, fibromyalgia, and so many more—are conditions where the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues rather than a foreign molecule like bacteria. This happens when something confuses the immune system.Today, I’m joined by Dr. Sunjya Schweig to discuss why autoimmune issues are on the rise and how we can treat them using a Functional Medicine approach.Sunjya K. Schweig, MD, is deeply committed to building a cutting-edge, data-driven ecosystem for the prevention and reversal of chronic illness. As the founder and president of the California Center for Functional Medicine, Dr. Schweig and his team provide personalized, precision medicine care to help people with chronic illness recover their health.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Thrive Market, ButcherBox, and Cozy Earth.I like to call myself a pathological optimist. Our thoughts are transferred into our biology, which means generosity, service, and altruism make us healthier from the inside out, all while giving us more joy in life. Unfortunately, many of us go through life with a list of shoulds without truly knowing the why behind our actions. It can be a daunting task to seek meaning and purpose, but taking intentional steps towards this kind of clarity might be easier than you think. Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I’m excited to talk to Simon Sinek about how to find your why to live a more authentic, fulfilled, and healthy life. A trained ethnographer, Simon may be best known for his TED Talk on the concept of why, which has been viewed over 60 million times, and his video on millennials in the workplace—which reached 80 million views in its first week and has gone on to be seen hundreds of millions of times. He continues to share inspiration through his bestselling books, including global bestseller Start with WHY and New York Times bestsellers Leaders Eat Last and The Infinite Game, as well as his podcast, A Bit of OptimismThis episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Thrive Market, ButcherBox, and Cozy Earth.Rupa Health is a place where Functional Medicine practitioners can access more than 2,000 specialty lab tests.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and Paleovalley. Heart disease, cancer, and stroke are the leading causes of death in the US. These diseases all have several risk factors in common, like smoking, physical inactivity, and poor diet, which policymakers often view simply as personal choices. Yet there are many reasons we need to begin looking at health beyond the individual. In today’s episode, I talk with Dan Buettner, James Maskell, Tawny Jones, and Dr. Gabor Maté about how our environment shapes our health and why community is vital to healing.Dan Buettner is an explorer, National Geographic Fellow, award-winning journalist and producer, and New York Times bestselling author. He discovered the five places in the world—dubbed Blue Zones—where people live the longest, healthiest lives. James Maskell has spent the past decade innovating at the intersection of Functional Medicine and community, where he created the Functional Forum, the world’s largest Functional Medicine conference, with record-setting participation. His organization and first book of the same name, The Evolution of Medicine, prepares health professionals for this new era of preventive medicine. Tawny Jones has been an accomplished administrator at the Cleveland Clinic for 19 years. She leads clinical operations at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, sharing the efficacy of Functional Medicine and demonstrating its cost-effectiveness and ability to improve health. The Functioning for Life shared medical program for chronic disease management is her brainchild.  A renowned speaker and bestselling author, Dr. Gabor Maté is highly sought after for his expertise on a range of topics including addiction, stress, and childhood development. Dr. Maté has written several bestselling books. His latest book, The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture, was just released.This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and Paleovalley. Rupa Health is a place where Functional Medicine practitioners can access more than 2,000 specialty lab tests from over 20 labs like DUTCH, Vibrant America, Genova, and Great Plains.

This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and InsideTracker.As hunter-gatherers, we ate the equivalent of only 20 teaspoons of sugar a year. Today, we eat over 150 pounds per year per person, or half a pound per day. The average school kid eats 34 teaspoons of sugar a day. Many supermarkets and health-food stores now carry many sneaky sources of sugar disguised in unrecognizable ingredients and so-called “healthy” foods that contain as much—if not more—sugar than their regular versions.In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I am talking all about sugar and sweeteners. I discuss how sugar can dramatically alter your metabolism and brain chemistry, causing you to suffer intense cravings, how quitting sugar can rapidly improve your health, the different types of sugars, and what sugars we should absolutely stay away from.This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and InsideTracker.For a limited time, new subscribers to ButcherBox will receive ground beef FOR LIFE.

I'm confused about this episode because it seemed like it was a bunch of clips from other episodes and the topic and guest speaker kept changing.

I have PCOS due to the usage of birth control. The list of side effects for women who are on birth control is astronomically long and hazardous to our health. I was so excited to hear this episode and she almost seems hesitant on Dr. Hymans way of living as an alternative way of treatment to PCOS.

I have a question. I have heard that omega 3s can lead to atrial fibrillation. Is this true? I am already having some atrial fibrillation and I don't know whether or not I should take them. Thanks!

I really enjoy listening to Mark Hyman but he talks to people within the silo. All these podcasts are echo chambers for these guys. Id really love if Dr Hyman could go onto podcasts outside of genre and start educating people that don’t know about this stuff. Actually educating people instead of talking to like minded people who just compare degrees and knowledge about the same stuff.

A topic like this which is so important right now shouldn’t be a teaser podcast for future payment. I 100% appreciate all the amazing and free content you guys put out - this podcast shouldn’t be part of that. Payment for other podcasts is understandable but not one that has information that will help millions of people.

I wonder who funds Dale to push vaccines onto people. He keeps running around the fact that Covid vaccines have more negative implications than what it is marketed for. He also persists to highlight that sterilized vaccines in the past were highly effective and comparable to the flu vaccines when he admitted that they create very different results.

I think it's fair to assume that the segments of the population with highest risk factors will be more likely to be vaccinated while those with lowest risk would be less likely. Logically this would indicate that death rates will lower. For example if 90% of those over 60 are vaccinated & only 20% of those under 30 that won't result in the same death rates as if both segments of the population are vaccinated at 50% (as assumed in this podcast). I'm wondering if any analysis has been done considering this. Please also clarify which masks afford best protection. in this episode it's casually tossed out that cloth masks are not effective in preventing spread but no additional information is given & N95 masks aren't accessible or practical to all.
