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.

View Show Notes From This Episode Get Free Weekly Health Tips from Dr. Hyman Sign Up for Dr. Hyman’s Weekly Longevity Journal One of the many reasons I was drawn to Functional Medicine is that it’s the medicine of asking “why?” and looking beyond the status quo to reimagine health. When we use this practice to assess the metabolic diseases we see today, we can see we’re in an energy crisis. We’re wrapped up in a web of physiologic root causes, but also a web of policies, industries, and economic incentives impacting our health from the ground up. I loved discussing all this and more on this episode of the podcast with Dr. Casey Means.  We take a deep dive into: Why we need to reimagine the healthcare system and how to use Functional Medicine as a framework for asking “why?” Using metabolic health as a barometer for our challenges as a society  A stark reality: Every institution related to our health makes money off of sickness Combining advanced technology with our own awareness to take back control of our health Five affordable biomarkers of metabolic syndrome to start with  And so much more!

Thank you for this! I have had so many vitamin D deficiency symptoms over the years, but no doctor has ever tested my vitamin D levels! After 15 years of symptoms, I started researching & discovered I should try taking Vitamin D & get my levels checked. So, I started taking Vitamin D & I started feeling better!!! I also went to the doctor, explained this, & asked for my vitamin D level to be checked. The doctor denied the testing & said that I don't need it checked & low vitamin D is not what my symptoms were from. I was floored. So I thank you for trying to get this information out there!! ✌️💛
