Humans have a complex and intimate connection with out of our most basic needs: food. In our culture, food can serve many purposes including memories, joy, and connection. And because every cell in your body is created from the food you eat, your diet also has a profound impact on the way your body functions on a daily basis. On this compilation episode of The Model Health Show, you’re going to hear two of my conversations with award-winning science journalist and author, Mark Schatzker. Mark has extensively studied our society’s relationship with food and flavor, and how our brain drives our cravings. These conversations are centered around how your brain interprets food as information, the science of flavor, and what causes obesity. Mark’s work covers important topics like how our weight is controlled by our brain, how our brain interprets sweetness, and what we can do to heal our society’s broken relationship with food. Understanding the way your brain interprets food is a critical piece of finding balance and health; I hope this episode is both insightful and empowering. In this episode you’ll discover: The experience that inspired Mark to study flavor. How cattle eat intuitively, and what we can learn from them. Why the production of US crops has changed over the last few decades. The interesting link between flavor and nutrition. What a gas chromatograph is.

The immune system is one of the most powerful, complex systems in your body. Its critical role is to protect the body from harmful invaders like viruses and bacteria. An autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system misfires, attacking the very cells it is intended to protect. The range of autoimmune diseases is vast, and they can affect different organs and systems in the body. Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is a progressive autoimmune disease that attacks the body’s central nervous system. In severe cases, MS can cause debilitating symptoms such as blindness, paralysis, and neurodegeneration.

The wide variety of symptoms that can be caused by MS. How changing her diet improved Dr. Wahls’ health. The role mitochondria play in progressive diseases.

There were no people of colour in this survey. At that point, I switched off. Sure, demographics change, but your methodology should have the flexibility to accommodate this. I really like this podcast otherwise.

I have panhypopituitarism and have always been on the pill and recently stopped then had horrible side effects of like menopause so I tried the patch and didn't help my libido either. I'm worried I'm going to get a higher risk of cancer. my gynocologist said birth control doesnt cause or contribute to breast cancer but never mentioned cervical cancer. I barely have a libido and am frustrated. please help!

The Diet of Common Sense Podcast

Our minds are powerful computers, and yet they say we only use 10% of our brain. The brain uses 20% of the body's energy, and in order to keep it healthy we need to eat more brain superfoods such as omega 3 fatty acids, greeny leaves, avocado, blueberries. Hydration is also important, studies suggests that even mild dehydration can affect our cognitive performance.

Thank you so much for such valuable knowledge. I've spent so much money at the dermatologist. I tried 2 different kinds of pills & two different types of face creams he prescribed. None of it worked. In fact, it worsened my acne. I have tried it all! I have prayed, used Tea Tree oil, Proactive, microdermabrasion, ate more salmon & walnuts, lifted weights, did cardio, slept more, took the hair skin & nail vitamins, & quit all dark sodas. It did nothing. This show has given me a new sense of hope! Thank you so much!

I was born and raised in Kijabe, Kenya, and it was so lovely to hear Jane's story and hear her accent. It brought back so many lovely memories(I lived there for 18 years).

I love that you mention Camu Camu berry again, also heard you talking about it’s vitamin C potential alongside Acerola cherry and Amla berry in a different episode - in my own experience, I’ve used Camu Camu powder to recover from food poisoning and it worked within a half an hour to relieve my digestive upset and nausea symptoms likely because of its positive affect on the micro biome!
