I am a regular listener, often passing along to the nursing team I support and lead. As a RN of more than 35 years I find the info shared here relevant and understandable. I just finished listening to the lengthy but outstanding episode, The Real Story about COVID vaccines that thoroughly unpacks all the necessary information about the vaccines. Thank you, Dr. Hyman, for continuously producing excellent content for your listeners.

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.

How To Kill Zombie Cells To Slow Aging
19:07

This episode is brought to you by Mitopure and Athletic Greens.


Each of us is made up of an estimated 30 trillion cells, all of which work together in harmony to perform all of the functions necessary for us to survive from day to day and year to year. But sometimes cells go rogue and don’t conform to the normal cell life cycle. When that happens, we end up with cells in our body that start to cause damage. These rogue cells, called senescent or “zombie” cells, release inflammatory chemicals that contribute to all manner of health issues—osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, to name just a few.


In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I am talking all about zombie cells—what they are, how they develop, and how we can get rid of them.


This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Athletic Greens.

Is it Worse to Be Overfat or Under Lean? with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon
1:11:45

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, Rupa Health, and InsideTracker.


If we want to age as well as possible, maintain function and strength, and stay independent as we age, there is a key area of our physiology that we need to pay attention to: muscle.


Skeletal muscle is the currency of aging; it’s an essential lever in maintaining optimal metabolic health, reducing body fat, and supporting longevity. And a major piece of building and maintaining muscle is protein consumption—which is often a controversial topic in the nutrition space. Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I talk with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon about the science of muscle mass, protein sources, and healthy aging and how we can all pay attention to these things in our daily lives. 


Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is a Washington University fellowship-trained physician in Nutritional Science and Geriatrics and is board certified in Family Medicine. She is the founder of the Institute for Muscle Centric-Medicine™ and has a private practice that services the leaders, innovators, mavericks, and executives in their prospective fields. In addition, Dr. Lyon also works closely with Special Operations Military. Her goal is to change the paradigm of medicine from obesity-focused to muscle-centric and change the way we think about health and medicine with high scientific integrity.

Why Our Current Healthcare System Keeps Us Sick And How To Fix It
1:06:30

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and Essentia.

 

Heart disease, cancer, and stroke are the leading causes of death—and premature death at that—in the US. These diseases all have several risk factors in common, like smoking, physical inactivity, and poor diet, which policy often views simply as personal choices. We need to begin looking at disease prevention beyond individual decision-making.

 

In this podcast, I talk with Dr. Anand Parekh, Senator Bill Frist, and Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian on the need for government policymakers to address disease prevention.

 

Dr. Anand Parekh is the Bipartisan Policy Center’s chief medical advisor, providing clinical and public health expertise across the organization, particularly in the areas of aging, prevention, and global health. As a US Department of Health and Human Services deputy assistant secretary for health from 2008 to 2015, he developed and implemented national initiatives focused on prevention, wellness, and care management. He is the author of Prevention First: Policymaking for a Healthier America.

 

Senator Bill Frist is a heart and lung transplant surgeon and former US Senate majority leader. He led passage of the 2003 Medicare Modernization Act and the historic PEPFAR HIV/AIDS legislation that has saved millions of lives worldwide. As the founder and director of the Vanderbilt Multi-Organ Transplant Center, he has performed over 150 heart and lung transplants, authored over 100 peer-reviewed medical articles, and published seven books.

 

Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian is a cardiologist, Dean and Jean Mayer Professor at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and professor of medicine at Tufts Medical School. He has authored more than 400 scientific publications on dietary priorities for obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases and on evidence-based policy approaches to reduce these burdens in the US and globally. He has served in numerous advisory roles, including for the US and Canadian governments.⁣⁣ ⁣

How To Heal Genetic, Cultural, and Individual Trauma with Dr. James Gordon
1:06:11

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Cozy Earth.


Trauma isn’t just psychological; it impacts us all the way down to our genes. And those epigenetic changes don’t just stay with us—they can be passed down through several generations. That means the trauma we may be working through isn’t just our own, it’s the stress and trauma of our parents, grandparents, and even great grandparents. I know this might sound bleak, but today’s conversation on The Doctor’s Farmacy with Dr. James Gordon is about healing from all types of trauma to find greater mind-body peace. 


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, D.C. Dr. Gordon is internationally recognized for using self-awareness, self-care, and group support to heal population-wide psychological trauma. He is a clinical professor at Georgetown Medical School and was chairman (under Presidents Clinton and G.W. Bush) of the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy.

How Your Health Is Impacted By Food Marketing And Our Dietary Guidelines
47:04

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Thrive Market, and Essentia.


Food marketing and misguided dietary guidelines play a large role in the food choices we make. These foods are frequently devoid of nutritional value and, even worse, they are addictive and keep you going back for more. Our bodies are built and maintained by what we put in our mouths; we literally are what we eat. Unfortunately, that means the majority of people in our country are made of ultra-processed food-like substances that create disease. 


In today’s episode, I talk with Nina Teicholz, Michael Moss, and Vani Hari on the influence of food marketing and why the US government’s dietary guidelines may not be so healthy after all.


Nina Teicholz is a science journalist and author of the New York Times bestseller The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat, and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet, which upended the conventional wisdom on dietary fat—especially saturated fat—and spurred a new conversation about whether these fats in fact cause heart disease.

 

Michael Moss, a New York Times investigative reporter turned food-focused journalist, Pulitzer Prize winner for Explanatory Reporting, and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us, as well as the book Hooked: Food and Free Will, focused around food and addiction.

 

Vani Hari is the revolutionary food activist behind foodbabe.com, cofounder of organic food brand Truvani, New York Times best selling author of The Food Babe Way and Feeding You Lies. She has led campaigns against food giants like Kraft, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Subway, and General Mills that attracted more than 500,000 signatures and led to the removal of several controversial ingredients used by these companies.

How Do I Eat Regeneratively Raised Farmed Fish? With James Arthur Smith
1:14:31

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, InsideTracker, and Rupa Health.


I would eat a lot more fish if I knew it was free from toxins like heavy metals, PCBs, and other dangerous compounds. It’s an incredibly healthy protein source when we can eliminate these factors, but sourcing clean fish can be tough. 


Today, I’m taking a deep dive into the issues surrounding fish, what kinds we should be eating, and everything in between with James Arthur Smith. 


James Arthur began his journey with regenerative aquaculture as a teenager volunteering at the Nature Interpretive Center in Southern California, where he got first-hand experience with a steelhead trout breeding and hatchery program. For the past ten years, he lived aboard and sailed around the Pacific from San Francisco to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. Throughout that time, he’s been on a mission visiting ocean aquaculture farms, vetting claims, lab testing seafood, and connecting the best-in-class aquaculture projects with farm-to-table restaurants in California. 


In 2020 he founded SEATOPIA, a gourmet seafood subscription box now delivering certified mercury-safe seafood, carbon-neutral, direct to homes nationwide. Through SEATOPIA, he is endeavoring to scale a truly regenerative seafood supply chain and empower health-conscious consumers to directly support innovative aquaculture projects producing some of the healthiest protein on the planet.

Healing Insomnia, Reducing Pain, And Other Benefits Of Medicinal Cannabis
1:05:50

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Essentia.


There are actually many proven benefits of medical marijuana when it’s used the right way. In fact, cannabis may be one of the oldest documented herbal medicines on earth. And the body has a remarkable built-in system of endocannabinoid receptors that pair with it to reduce pain, improve sleep, increase mood, reduce nausea, and much more. 


In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Misha Kogan, Dr. Josh Axe, and Jamie Wheal about the many benefits of cannabis, and we take a look at how the body’s built-in endocannabinoid healing system works in tandem with this plant medicine.

What Causes High Blood Pressure And How To Fix It
19:42

This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and Athletic Greens.


High blood pressure—medically known as hypertension—affects about 30 percent of adults. Left neglected, it can severely damage your quality of life and set the stage for heart disease, kidney complications, or a stroke. Conventional medicine typically treats hypertension with medications that are generally effective in reducing the risk of these complications. These medications frequently come with unintended side effects, however. The good news is the right foods and nutrients can dramatically lower blood pressure without the high costs and side effects of medications. 


In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I discuss the driving forces of hypertension and the Functional Medicine approach to treating it.

The True Dangers Of Sugar with Dr. Robert Lustig
1:26:32

This episode is brought to you by Mitopure, Rupa Health, and FOND Bone Broth.


When we take a global bird's eye view of diets around the world, it’s clear that the Western diet makes humans sick. Any nation that has acquired our habits of eating highly-processed foods, rich in refined carbohydrates, fructose, and inflammatory fats, ends up metabolically unhealthy. Metabolic health is much more than just maintaining a healthy weight. It’s the sum of our cardiovascular, mitochondrial, liver, gut, and hormone function—and a poor diet impacts all of these systems for the worse. 


Today, I’m excited to talk to my friend and a physician who is an inspiration to me, Dr. Robert Lustig, all about fixing our metabolic health. Dr. Lustig is a neuroendocrinologist with expertise in metabolism, obesity, and nutrition. He’s the Emeritus Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology and a member of the Institute for Health Policy Studies at UCSF. He is also one of the leaders of the current “anti-sugar” movement that is changing the food industry, in part through his game-changing books. His latest work is Metabolical: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine.

Why We Grow Old And How To Age Well
57:45

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and InsideTracker.


In Western culture, we’ve gained a negative view of aging. But in other cultures around the world, aging is celebrated and embraced. That’s because we define difficult symptoms like aches and pains, cognitive decline, and so many others as “aging” when they’re actually signs of dis-ease that can be prevented and often even reversed. Fortunately, there is much we can do to change the trajectory of aging starting at a young age, or at any age. 


In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. David Sinclair, Dr. Frank Lipman, and Dan Buettner about all the ways to age better, from supplements to support mitochondria, to increasing muscle, to cultivating community, and more.


Dr. David Sinclair is a professor in the Department of Genetics and codirector of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at Harvard Medical School, where he and his colleagues study longevity, aging, and how to slow its effects.


Dr. Frank Lipman is recognized as a vocal pioneer of integrative and Functional Medicine (or what he calls “Good Medicine”). Dr. Lipman is the founder of Eleven Eleven Wellness Center and the Chief Medical Officer at The Well. He is a sought-after international speaker and the bestselling author of six books: How to Be Well, The New Health Rules, Young & Slim for Life, Revive, Total Renewal, and his newest book, The New Rules of Aging Well: A Simple Program for Immune Resilience, Strength, and Vitality.⁣


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.


This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and InsideTracker.

What Dietary And Lifestyle Changes Get Rid Of Acne?
15:44

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.


Typically, the first thing we reach for to deal with acne is a lotion, potion, or cream to apply to the skin—and conventional medicine doctors frequently prescribe birth control pills. These approaches do not target the root cause of acne, however. A growing body of research suggests it’s not what we slather on our skin that matters most but rather what is going on inside our body.


In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I talk about acne—the number-one skin condition in the United States—and its effects on not just millions of teenagers but an increasing number of adults.


This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.

Why Self Help Is Not Always Helpful with Susan Piver
1:07:52

This episode is brought to you by Mitopure, BiOptimizers, and Beekeeper’s Naturals.


If you’ve ever been curious about why you are the way you are, the Enneagram can provide some really interesting insights. Translating this ancient practice into modern life can help us understand our unique gifts and how we can best show up in the world. The Enneagram is a system of mapping nine ways of being, including personality and beyond. The teaching of the Enneagram—an ancient map of how we work—has a fascinating intersection with Buddhism—an ancient map of how the mind works. 


I couldn’t be more excited to sit down with my very good friend Susan Piver to explore this connection and learn more about using the Enneagram and Buddhism to create greater self-love. Susan Piver is the New York Times bestselling author of many books, including the award-winning How Not to Be Afraid of Your Own Life, The Wisdom of a Broken Heart, Start Here Now: An Open-Hearted Guide to the Path and Practice of Meditation, and The Four Noble Truths of Love: Buddhist Wisdom for Modern Relationships. Her newest book is The Buddhist Enneagram: Nine Paths to Warriorship.


This episode is brought to you by Mitopure, BiOptimizers, and Beekeeper’s Naturals.

Why You Probably Need More Omega-3s In Your Diet
51:00

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and FOND Bone Broth.

 

Omega-3 is a fatty acid your body uses in all kinds of ways. Its benefits for our body are hard to overstate. But unlike most fats, your body can’t manufacture omega-3. Instead, it’s an “essential nutrient,” which means the only way to get it is through your diet.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Paul Greenberg, Dr. Andrew Huberman, and Dr. Daniel Amen about the importance of essential fatty acids like omega-3 for sleep, brain and heart health, and more.

 

Paul Greenberg is the bestselling author of Four Fish, American Catch, and The Omega Principle. A regular contributor to the New York Times and many other publications, Mr. Greenberg is the writer-in-residence at the Safina Center, a Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation, and the recipient of a James Beard Award for Writing and Literature.

 

Dr. Andrew Huberman is a McKnight Foundation and Pew Foundation Fellow and was awarded the Cogan Award in 2017, which is given to the scientist making the largest discoveries in the study of vision. Work from the Huberman Laboratory at Stanford University School of Medicine has been published in top journals including Nature, Science, and Cell and has been featured in TIME, BBC, Scientific American, Discover, and other top media outlets.

 

Dr. Daniel Amen is a physician, double-board-certified psychiatrist, 12-time New York Times bestselling author, and founder and CEO of Amen Clinics, with 10 US locations. Dr. Amen is the author of many books including the mega-bestseller Change Your Brain, Change Your Life, as well as The End of Mental Illness, Memory Rescue, Healing ADD, and Your Brain Is Always Listening. His new book, You, Happier: The 7 Neuroscience Secrets of Feeling Good Based on Your Brain Type, is now available.

What You Need To Know About Cholesterol Testing And Reducing Risk For Heart Disease
21:54

This episode is brought to you by Thrive Market and Athletic Greens.


For years well-meaning doctors, echoed by the media, have emphasized what they have long believed is the intimate link between cholesterol and death by heart disease. If only it were so simple! You may hope that if you monitor your cholesterol levels and avoid the foods that are purported to raise cholesterol, you’ll be safe from America’s number-one killer. The truth is much more complex. Cholesterol is only one factor among many—and it’s not even the most important one—that contribute to your risk of getting heart disease.

Are Psychedelics The Solution To The Opioid Crisis? with Deborah Mash
1:19:32

This episode is brought to you by Cozy Earth, InisdeTracker, and Rupa Health.


If you or a loved one struggle with addiction, this is an episode you’re going to want to listen to. Many of our current pharmaceuticals stem from compounds discovered in plant medicines. And many beneficial plants that were discovered decades ago still have huge potential for changing modern medicine—ibogaine is one of them. Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I’m excited to sit down with Dr. Deborah Mash to discuss the use of the African plant ibogaine and its metabolite, noribogaine, in the treatment of addiction and how it could impact the devastating opioid epidemic. 


Dr. Deborah Mash is one of the world's foremost experts on ibogaine. She is the CEO and Founder of DemeRx Inc., a clinical-stage drug development company advancing ibogaine and its active metabolite noribogaine for the treatment of opioid use disorder. DemeRx has partnered with ATAI Life Sciences—a global biotech platform with a special focus on psychedelic medicine—to develop ibogaine for those suffering from opioid use disorder. Building on the extensive human data available around ibogaine, DemeRx and ATAI are conducting a Clinical Phase I/II trial in opioid-dependent patients. This landmark trial will advance screening procedures, dosing guidelines, and best practices for opioid withdrawal management and relapse prevention.

How To Know If Gluten Is An Issue For You
48:04

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and HigherDOSE.

 

Gluten is one ingredient we all love in bread or our favorite pizza dough, but it’s often the cause of inflammation and leaky gut, which is implicated in so many health conditions such as IBS, skin problems, Hashimoto’s, high blood pressure, and more. And it is not just people with celiac disease who are affected.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Maggie Ward, Dr. Alessio Fasano, and Dr. George Papanicolaou about how gluten affects the gut and how to know if it's a problem for you.

Advancing innovation in research, clinical care, and education, Alessio Fasano, MD, has dedicated his life to improving the quality of life for people with celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders. He founded the Center for Celiac Research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 1996. In 2013, he moved the center to Massachusetts General Hospital and renamed it the Center for Celiac Research and Treatment. He is chief of the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children and a professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.

 

Dr. George Papanicolaou is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board certified in family medicine from Abington Memorial Hospital. Upon graduation from his residency, he joined the Indian Health Service. In 2000, he founded Cornerstone Family Practice in Rowley, MA.

What Causes Inflammation And How Can You Treat It?
20:08

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.


Hidden inflammation is at the root of all chronic illness—conditions like heart disease, obesity, diabetes, dementia, depression, cancer, and even autism. So if inflammation is at the root of most modern diseases, how do we find the causes and get the body back in balance? First, we need to identify the triggers and causes of inflammation. Then we need to help reset the body’s natural immune balance by providing the right conditions for it to thrive.


In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I am talking about inflammation, how it’s linked to everything from obesity to all of the chronic diseases of aging, and how to combat it.

Is Poor Gut Health Or Sleep Issues Driving Your Depression, ADHD, And More?
56:15

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Pique Life.

 

Instead of using a pharmaceutical drug, what if your doctor knew how to look deeper to find out what is causing your depression, ADHD, or anxiety? While there is a time and a place for drugs, they can have significant side effects and may not be as effective at correcting an underlying imbalance in the body. Functional Medicine practitioners look at gut health, genes, diet, hormones, and so much more to create a thorough healing plan.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Uma Naidoo, Dr. George Papanicolaou, and Dr. Drew Ramsey about how diet and lifestyle can be both a cause of and treatment for depression and other mental health issues.

 

Dr. Uma Naidoo is a Harvard-trained psychiatrist, professional chef, and nutrition specialist. In her role as a clinical scientist, Dr. Naidoo founded and directs the first hospital-based clinical service in nutritional psychiatry in the US. She is the Director of Nutritional and Lifestyle Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Director of Nutritional Psychiatry at the Massachusetts General Hospital Academy while serving on the faculty at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Naidoo is the author of This is Your Brain on Food. ⁣

 

Dr. George Papanicolaou is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board certified in family medicine from Abington Memorial Hospital. Upon graduation from his residency, he joined the Indian Health Service. In 2000, he founded Cornerstone Family Practice in Rowley, MA. He began training in Functional Medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine. In 2015, he established Cornerstone Personal Health—a practice dedicated entirely to Functional Medicine. Dr. Papanicolaou joined The UltraWellness Center in 2017.

 

Dr. Drew Ramsey is a psychiatrist, author, farmer, and founder of the Brain Food Clinic in New York City, offering treatment and consultation for depression, anxiety, and emotional wellness concerns. He is the author of three books, most recently the award-winning cookbook Eat Complete: The 21 Nutrients That Fuel Brain Power, Boost Weight Loss, and Transform Your Health.

Why Fatty Liver Is So Common And How To Heal It
16:53

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.


“Fatty liver” literally means your liver fills with fat, which paves the way for chronic disease and inflammation. Fatty liver is a dangerous yet misunderstood disease. It is also very common, affecting 90 million Americans alone. You need a healthy liver to combat toxic junk and chemicals in your environment. A healthy liver means your body stays healthy, you don’t get sick, and you maintain plenty of energy. A fatty liver, on the other hand, has numerous repercussions including inflammation, which triggers insulin resistance and prediabetes, meaning your body deposits fat in your liver and organs, including your belly (called visceral fat). Fatty liver can also lead to more serious problems including high triglycerides, low HDL (“good” cholesterol), and high amounts of small LDL (dangerous cholesterol particles that can cause heart attacks). Fatty liver also increases your heart attack risk.


In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I am talking about how to identify if you have fatty liver, what’s causing it, and how to fix it.

The Causes Of Resistance To Weight Loss with Dr. Casey Means
1:01:46

This episode is brought to you by Cozy Earth, BiOptimizers, and InsideTracker.


For decades, I’ve been on a mission to help my patients understand that weight loss is not about “calories in, calories out”. There are a multitude of factors that play into how our body makes, stores, and burns fat and the actual amount of calories we eat is one small drop in the bucket of our complex biology. Today, I’m excited to talk with Dr. Casey Means about the main drivers people face when struggling to lose weight and what we can do about them. 


Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer, and Co-founder of metabolic health company Levels, an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a 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. Dr. Means’ perspective has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Men's Health, Forbes, Business Insider, Techcrunch, Entrepreneur Magazine, Metabolism, Endocrine Today, and more.

How To Improve Your Health With Probiotics
56:04

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and InsideTracker.

 

Your gut is your inner garden—the more good bugs you have in it the more likely it is to flourish. Our gut bacteria regulate many of our bodily functions, from creating vitamins to controlling our immune system, our brain function, and, of course, our metabolism and weight. They are critical to our long-term health. But even if you’re eating the right things, you may need some outside assistance maintaining plentiful and diverse gut bacteria. Probiotics help populate your gut with beneficial bacteria, improving your sleep, daily elimination, brain health, and so much more. 


In today’s episode, I talk with Dhru Purohit, Dr. Tracy Shafizadeh, and Dr. Elizabeth Boham about probiotics, the importance of the gut microbiome starting in infancy, and why you should work with a skilled practitioner to choose the right probiotic for you.

 

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. Tracy Shafizadeh is leading the work in understanding the infant microbiome. She is a nutritional scientist who helps new and expectant moms learn about creating healthy gut bugs in their babies. Dr. Shafizadeh received her Ph.D. in nutritional biology from the University of California, Davis, and spends her free time "loving the guts" out of her two boys.

 

Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.

How To Use Nutrients To Support Our Brain Health
17:29

This episode is brought to you by Beekeeper’s Naturals and Athletic Greens.


Your brain is an organ that’s connected to everything else happening in your body. Most of us never learn how to manage our energy and bodies. Instead, we use drugs like sugar, caffeine, and alcohol to self-medicate and manage our energy and moods. We don’t connect our behaviors and choices with how we feel. Many of us get too little good food, nutrients, light, air, water, rest, sleep, rhythm, exercise, community, love, meaning, and purpose. We’re exposed to far too much poor-quality food, stress, toxins, and allergens. But even if you manage all those things correctly, you still might not be getting the right amount of certain nutrients that support your brain and body. That’s where supplements come in.


In today’s episode in my series I’m calling Health Bites, I am talking about how to heal our broken brains with the right nutrients. The brain is resilient and can recover and heal when given the right conditions.


This episode is brought to you by  Beekeeper’s Naturals and Athletic Greens.

A Roadmap To Creating Healthy Love And Relationships with Mia Lux
1:06:36

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, BiOptimizers, and InsideTracker.


Our relationships affect our health and happiness. The problem is that we’re never taught how to seek, create, nurture, and assess our relationships the same way we do our careers and bank accounts. But the cost of bad relationships on ourselves and our society truly adds up. The relationships many of us grew up around and might consider “normal” are in fact dysfunctional, creating a negative cycle we often don’t even realize we’re in. So how can we find good love, create good relationships, and keep them? That’s what today’s conversation with Mia Lux is all about. 


Mia merges the playful and the profound—drawing on her experience as a start-up CEO, stand-up comedian, personal growth junkie, and recovering lawyer. For over 7 years, Mia has been an international host, comedian & facilitator, specializing in designing and facilitating top wellness/personal development experiences around the world. Now, Mia is channeling this in the name of love as the Co-Founder & CEO of La Vette, a radical new platform designed to rehumanize dating in the digital era.

The Functional Medicine Approach To Hair Loss
1:05:26

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Pique Tea.


Hair loss is a commonly experienced issue and often signals something deeper going on in the body. And as there are many different types of hair loss, there are also many various drivers of hair loss, including hormonal imbalance, metabolic dysfunction, or even autoimmune disease. This is why Functional Medicine practitioners look at gut and metabolic health, nutrient status, and much more to find the root cause of hair loss.


In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Elizabeth Boham, Dhru Purohit, and Dr. Cynthia Li about the many different types of hair loss and their associated underlying causes.

 

Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing, she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.

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. Cynthia Li received her medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. She has practiced as an internist in settings as diverse as Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, San Francisco General Hospital, and St. Anthony Medical Clinic serving the homeless. Her personal health challenges led her to integrative and Functional Medicine, and she currently has a private practice in Berkeley, CA. She serves on the faculty of the Healer’s Art program at the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, and she is the author of Brave New Medicine: A Doctor’s Unconventional Path to Healing Her Autoimmune Illness.

How To Treat The Root Cause Of Thyroid Problems
21:59

This episode is sponsored by Paleovalley and Pendulum.


Thyroid disease affects one in five women and one in ten men, yet 50 percent of people with thyroid disease go undiagnosed. The main role of thyroid hormone is to stimulate metabolism, and it affects almost every function of the body. That’s why thyroid imbalance can cause so many different symptoms.


In today’s episode of a new series called Health Bites, I discuss thyroid disease and why an out-of-whack thyroid can stall your metabolism and create many other problems. I also share why using a whole-foods diet, nutritional supplements, and optimizing thyroid hormone replacement is critical for addressing thyroid disorders.

Why Most Of Us Are Nutrient Deficient And What To Do About It with Chris Kresser
1:30:39

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Cozy Earth.


If you’ve ever wondered if supplements are worthwhile or just create expensive urine, this is the podcast episode for you. While I wish it wasn’t the case, I do believe we need supplements to make up for the nutrients we can no longer get through food alone. It’s extra important to note, though, that not all supplements are created equal. And please keep in mind they’re called “supplements” for a reason, not “replacements”—they are meant to supplement a healthy diet and lifestyle to provide the most impact.


Today, I’m excited to take a deeper dive into this topic with one of my most trusted sources when it comes to nutrition and dietary research, Chris Kresser. Chris Kresser M.S., L.Ac. is the co-founder of the California Center for Functional Medicine, the founder of Kresser Institute, the host of the top-ranked health podcast Revolution Health Radio, the creator of ChrisKresser.com, and the New York Times best-selling author of The Paleo Cure and Unconventional Medicine. Chris is one of the most respected clinicians and educators in the fields of Functional Medicine and ancestral health and has trained over 2,000 clinicians and health coaches from over 50 countries in his unique approach. He has recently launched Adapt Naturals, a supplement line designed to add back in what the modern world has squeezed out and help people perform and feel their best.

Simple Practices And Tips For Better Sleep
50:50

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and Mitopure.

 

Sleep is a keystone of health. Most people know they should get more high-quality sleep, but they don’t really know where to start. But understanding the way our brain and neurotransmitters work means we can hack our sleep to not just feel amazing but to level up our focus, skills, and knowledge. And it’s not all about what happens at night, either—getting the right exposure to light at the right times has a profound impact on our circadian rhythms and the way our bodies transition to sleep.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Roger Seheult, Dhru Purohit, and Dr. Andrew Huberman about why optimizing your sleep should be prioritized and how you can get better sleep.

 

Dr. Roger Seheult is currently an associate clinical professor at the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine, and an assistant clinical professor at the School of Medicine and Allied Health at Loma Linda University. Dr. Seheult is quadruple board certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Diseases, Critical Care Medicine, and Sleep Medicine through the American Board of Internal Medicine. He is also the cofounder of MedCram, an online medical education company that helps healthcare professionals and laypeople understand medical topics clearly.

 

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. Andrew Huberman is a McKnight Foundation and Pew Foundation Fellow and was awarded the Cogan Award in 2017, which is given to the scientist making the largest discoveries in the study of vision. His lab’s most recent work focuses on the influence of vision and respiration on human performance and brain states such as fear and courage.

What's Causing Your IBS And How To Heal Your Gut
23:53

This episode is sponsored by InsideTracker and Athletic Greens.


Believe it or not, the surface area of your small intestine, which is where your food is absorbed, is the size of a tennis court. Your small intestine is also the home of your gut-immune system, which accounts for about 60 percent of your total immune system. The lining of this sophisticated system is just one cell layer away from a toxic sewer where all of the bacteria and undigested food particles live in your gut. If that lining breaks down—from stress; too many antibiotics or anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen; steroids; intestinal infections; a low-fiber, high-sugar diet; alcohol; and more—your immune system will be exposed to foreign particles from food, bacteria, and other microbes. This, in turn, creates havoc that can lead to an irritable bowel and other system-wide problems including allergies, arthritis, and autoimmune and mood disorders.


In today’s episode of a new series called Health Bites, I discuss how to heal irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and upregulate your gut health, which is at the forefront of Americans’ most common health complaints.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and FOND Bone Broth.


Why are we seeing more chronic disease, stress, obesity, addiction, and so many other states of illness than ever before, despite having the most advanced medical system in the world?


Because we aren’t living in a natural and normal world. We’re actually having normal responses to our abnormal circumstances, many of which create trauma that gets stored in the brain and body. Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I’m honored to talk to my dear friend Dr. Gabor Maté about the myth of normal, and why doing the difficult work of uncovering trauma is essential for living our fullest expression of life.

Dr. Maté has written several bestselling books, including the award-winning In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction, When the Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection, and Scattered: How Attention Deficit Disorder Originates and What You Can Do About It, and has co-authored Hold On to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers. His latest book, The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness & Healing in a Toxic Culture was just released.

1:01:33

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Thrive Market, and Levels.

 

We’ve been told that cognitive decline is inevitable, but researchers are discovering that we have more power over our aging brains than we once thought. What we eat, what we think, and how we live have incredible influence over the health of our brains—and our entire bodies. 

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Max Lugavere, Dr. Christopher Palmer, and Dr. Daniel Amen about foods that improve brain health, the link between our metabolic health and brain health, choosing happiness, and so much more.

 

Max Lugavere is a health and science journalist and the author of the New York Times bestselling book 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.

 

Dr. Christopher Palmer is a psychiatrist and researcher working at the intersection of metabolism and mental health. He is the Director of the Department of Postgraduate and Continuing Education at McLean Hospital and an assistant professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. For over 25 years, he has held leadership roles in psychiatric education, conducted research, and worked with people who have treatment-resistant mental illnesses. He has been pioneering the use of the medical ketogenic diet in the treatment of psychiatric disorders—conducting research, treating patients, writing, and speaking around the world on this topic.

 

Dr. Daniel Amen is a physician, double board-certified psychiatrist, twelve-time New York Times bestselling author, and founder and CEO of Amen Clinics, with 10 US locations. Dr. Amen is the author of many books including the mega-bestseller Change Your Brain, Change Your Life, as well as The End of Mental Illness, Memory Rescue, Healing ADD, and Your Brain Is Always Listening.

How To Know If You're Magnesium Deficient And What To Do About It
15:17

This episode is sponsored by ButcherBox and Athletic Greens.


Think of magnesium as the relaxation mineral. Anything that is tight, irritable, crampy, and stiff—whether it is a body part or even a mood—can be a sign of magnesium deficiency. This critical mineral is actually responsible for over 600 enzyme reactions and is found in all of your tissues—but mainly in your bones, muscles, and brain. You must have it for your cells to make energy, for many different chemical pumps to work, to stabilize membranes, and to help muscles relax. Yet, so many of us are deficient in this important mineral. 


In today’s episode of a new series called Health Bites, I discuss why magnesium deficiency is a huge problem, why most of us are deficient, how to identify if you are magnesium deficient, and what to do about it.

The Root Causes And Treatment For PCOS with Dr. Heather Huddleston
50:40

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, and BiOptimizers.


Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, affects 5 to 10% of women in their childbearing years. Despite the many women struggling with the difficult symptoms of PCOS, we still know little about it. Those symptoms can include irregular or missing periods, excessive hair growth or hair loss, acne, and weight gain. Sadly, the average woman with PCOS sees four doctors before receiving a diagnosis. Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I’m excited to talk to Dr. Heather Huddleston to dig into the nuances and research around PCOS.


Dr. Huddleston is the founder of the UCSF Multi-disciplinary PCOS Clinic and Research Center. This clinic provides care via an integrated group of providers with expertise in reproductive endocrinology, dermatology, nutrition, and psychology. Through the associated research program, Dr. Huddleston oversees investigations aimed at advancing our understanding of how physical activity, depression, cognition, sleep, and metabolic health all contribute to the manifestations of PCOS. Dr. Huddleston is passionate about broadly improving the care of patients with PCOS and serves as a medical advisor to Allara Health, which is an all-in-one virtual care platform for people with PCOS.

Using Diet And Lifestyle To Reverse Symptoms Of MS
49:47

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and InsideTracker.

 

The most profound cases of healing are in people who refuse to give up. Even if they’ve found some things that improve their condition, they continue searching for new ways to feel better and better. This is how we break down walls in medicine. The Functional Medicine methodology is the same; there is no end to searching for what is underneath the symptoms. Functional Medicine healing protocols can ultimately help change the prognosis of so many conditions, including the autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis. 

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Terry Wahls and Dr. Todd LePine about using diet, meditation, and much more to reverse devastating autoimmune disease symptoms.

 

Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa. Her secondary progressive multiple sclerosis confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years, but she restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for mitochondrial health and now pedals her bike to work each day. She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine, The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles, and the cookbook, The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life: The Revolutionary Modern Paleo Plan to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions.

 

Dr. Todd LePine graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and is board certified in Internal Medicine, specializing in Integrative Functional Medicine. He is an Institute for Functional Medicine certified practitioner. Prior to joining The UltraWellness Center, he worked as a physician at Canyon Ranch in Lenox, MA, for 10 years. Dr. LePine’s focus at The UltraWellness Center is to help his patients achieve optimal health and vitality by restoring the natural balance to both the mind and the body. His areas of interest include optimal aging, bio-detoxification, functional gastrointestinal health, systemic inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and the neurobiology of mood and cognitive disorders.

How This Molecule Prevents Aging And Disease
20:08

This episode is sponsored by InsideTracker and Athletic Greens.


Glutathione is the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease—yet you’ve probably never heard of it. It’s the secret to preventing aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia, and more, and it is necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer’s disease. The good news is your body produces its own glutathione. The bad news is poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections, and radiation all deplete your glutathione levels.


In today’s episode of a new series called Health Bites, I discuss what glutathione is, why it’s important, and tips to help you optimize your glutathione levels, improve your detoxification system, and help protect yourself from chronic illness.

How Reprogramming Our Genes Can Extend Our Lives with George Church
1:13:03

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, and InsideTracker.


All living things are programmed with a certain lifespan, which can be dramatically different from species to species. Humans now, in general, live twice as long as our ancestors, thanks to environmental changes and advances in medicine. But most of us spend the last years of our lives without the quality of life we really want. We’ve come to identify a slew of symptoms and chronic diseases as a natural part of aging, but do they really have to be?


Today I’m excited to talk to Dr. George Church all about the latest science on reprogramming our genes to extend our healthspan and lifespan. Dr. George Church is a professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School, a founding member of the Wyss Institute, and director of PersonalGenomes.org, the world’s only open-access information on human genomic, environmental, and trait data. Dr. Church is known for pioneering the fields of personal genomics and synthetic biology. He developed the first methods for the first genome sequence and his team invented CRISPR for human stem cell genome editing and other synthetic biology technologies and applications—including new ways to create organs for transplantation, gene therapies for aging reversal, and gene drives to eliminate Lyme disease and malaria. Dr. Church is the director of IARPA & NIH BRAIN Projects and the National Institutes of Health Center for Excellence in Genomic Science.  He is the author of Regenesis.

How Fructose Drives Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, And Chronic Disease
52:15

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Pendulum.

 

The majority of foods on our market shelves contain insane amounts of added sugar. One of the most problematic of these sugars is fructose, which raises our levels of uric acid, a central player in the metabolic mayhem affecting so many of us. This doesn’t mean all foods containing fructose are bad. Like all parts of health and nutrition, there are nuances we need to consider to create optimal health.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Drs. David Perlmutter, Casey Means, and Richard Johnson about how fructose and uric acid impact our physiology, why measuring uric acid levels is so important, and how fructose impacts our energy. 

 

Dr. David Perlmutter is a board-certified neurologist and five-time New York Times bestselling author. He serves on the board of directors and is a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He is the author of Grain Brain among others, and his new book, Drop Acid, was just released. Dr. Perlmutter received his MD from the University of Miami School of Medicine, where he was awarded the Leonard G. Rowntree Research Award.

 

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.

 

Dr. Richard Johnson is a professor of medicine at the University of Colorado in Denver and has been a practicing physician and clinical scientist for over 25 years. He is internationally recognized for his seminal work on the role of sugar, and its component fructose, in obesity and diabetes. His work has also suggested a fundamental role for uric acid (which is generated during fructose metabolism) in metabolic syndrome. He previously authored The Sugar Fix with Timothy Gower in 2008, and The Fat Switch in 2012. His new book, Nature Wants Us to Be Fat, was just released.

It’s information, and it’s the most powerful drug on the planet. It influences your capacity to live a rich, energetic, connected, soulful life.


In today’s episode of a new series called Health Bites, I discuss how to use food as medicine. I share the principles of eating an optimal diet, a list of the foods we should avoid, my number-one food philosophy, and more!

Using Ancient Wisdom To Resist Disease, Heal Quickly, And Age Well with Alberto Villoldo
1:11:48

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, InsideTracker, and Pendulum.


I’ve always been a big proponent of learning from those who came before us. The knowledge of ancient cultures is one piece of the foundation of modern medicine, but much shamanic wisdom has been ignored and is now being lost. It benefits us to stop and think about what’s going on below the surface, the things we can’t see—for our health, our perception of reality, everything. Invisible bacteria is one example, wisdom is another. Today I am thrilled to talk to my friend Alberto Villoldo about the role of ancient wisdom in health, healing, and aging optimally. 


Medical anthropologist Alberto Villoldo Ph.D. is an international bestselling author who has researched the shamanic healing practices of the Amazon and Andes for over 25 years. He is the founder of the Four Winds Society, an organization dedicated to the bridging of ancient shamanic traditions with modern medicine and psychology. Dr. Villoldo is the author of numerous books, including Power Up Your Brain; Shaman, Healer, Sage; Mending the Past and Healing the Future with Soul Retrieval; The Four Insights; Courageous Dreaming; One Spirit Medicine, and Grow a New Body. His latest book is The Wisdom Wheel: A Mythic Journey through the Four Directions, which we talk more about in this episode.

How Muscle Promotes Energy, Regulates Our Metabolism, And Prevents Disease
56:31

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and Comvita.


As you lose muscle, you lose mitochondria and your metabolism slows down. Then there is the fact that the natural loss of muscle mass and strength as we age is associated with all-cause mortality and linked to the incidence of many chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease and stroke, hypertension, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes. This is why muscle mass is not only essential for maintaining a healthy weight, but it’s also a key factor in reducing the risk of chronic disease and improving your healthspan and longevity. 


In this episode, I speak with Drs. Stuart Phillips and Chris Rinsch, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, and Mark Sisson about the importance of supporting our body’s largest organ, muscle.


Dr. Chris Rinsch is co-founder and CEO at Amazentis where he oversees the company’s operations in Switzerland. For more than two decades, he has been an innovator in the life sciences arena. 

 

Dr. Stuart Phillips is a Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and a member of the School of Medicine at McMaster University. He is Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Skeletal Muscle Health. He is also the Director of the McMaster University Physical Activity Centre of Excellence. 

 

Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is an integrative physician who completed her fellowship in Nutritional Sciences and Geriatrics at Washington University, St. Louis. She is board-certified in Family Medicine and completed her undergraduate work in Human Nutrition Vitamin and Mineral Metabolism. 


Mark Sisson is the founder of the popular daily health blog, Mark’s Daily Apple, godfather to the Primal food and lifestyle movement, and the New York Times bestselling author of The Keto Reset Diet. His latest book is Keto for Life, where he discusses how he combines the keto diet with a Primal lifestyle for optimal health and longevity. Mark is the author of numerous other books as well, including The Primal Blueprint.

How Insulin Resistance Drives Fatty Liver, Cognitive Issues, Metabolic Syndrome, And More
1:01:56

This episode is brought to you by Paleovalley and Athletic Greens.


Food should be a tool for helping us feel our best. But most people don’t realize what kind of impact many of the foods they eat are having on their blood sugar—and subsequently their entire body. The symptoms of blood sugar imbalances are everyday occurrences for most people. Feeling hungry even when you just ate, craving sweets, and dealing with acne, hormonal imbalances, and signs of aging, like wrinkles, are just a few of the many symptoms of blood sugar swings. When these continue to go unchecked, more severe dysfunctions can occur, like type 2 diabetes, infertility, fatty liver disease, and dementia. 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Ben Bikman, Dhru Purohit, and Dr. Ronesh Sinha about how common dietary patterns like eating simple carbs throughout the day create constant insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance, which in turn contributes to many diseases and aging.

 

Dr. Ben Bikman is a renowned metabolic research scientist and a popular speaker on human metabolism and nutrition. Backed by years of research, Dr. Bikman’s mission is to help the world appreciate the prevalence and relevance of insulin resistance. He is the author of the book Why We Get Sick, which offers a thought-provoking yet real solution to insulin resistance and reversing prediabetes, improving brain function, shedding fat, and preventing diabetes.

 

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.

How To Upgrade Your Metabolism with Dr. William Li
1:01:25

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, and InsideTracker.


Many people think of metabolism as one specific system in the body, when in fact it’s the sum of many different processes that are serving other vital roles for us as well. Our bodies are not closed systems, so our environment, social networks, diet, hormones, microbiome, genetics, and more, all influence how well our metabolism works, or how well we can extract energy from our food. I’m so happy to sit down with my good friend Dr. William Li to talk about what metabolism really means, why the old way of thinking about metabolism hasn’t helped us, and how to make positive impacts on our metabolism at any age.


Dr. William Li is a world-renowned physician, scientist, speaker, and author of Eat to Beat Disease - The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself. He is best known for leading the Angiogenesis Foundation. His groundbreaking work has impacted more than 70 diseases, including cancer, diabetes, blindness, heart disease, and obesity. An author of over 100 scientific publications in leading journals such as Science, the New England Journal of Medicine, The Lancet, and more, Dr. Li has served on the faculties of Harvard, Tufts, and Dartmouth Medical School.

What's Driving Your IBS And Gut Issues?
1:06:49

This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and Athletic Greens.

 

Our gut is a powerful control center, due to its bidirectional communication with the brain, which we call the gut-brain axis. This links the emotional and cognitive centers of the brain with intestinal function. Certain conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), are tied to imbalances in the gut-brain axis and can benefit from taking a systems approach in healing, which includes looking at diet, the microbiome, stress management, and more.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Todd LePine, Dr. Emeran Mayer, and Dr. George Papanicolaou about various root causes of irritable bowel syndrome, including microbiome imbalance, parasites, and stress.

 

Dr. Todd LePine graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and is board certified in Internal Medicine, specializing in Integrative Functional Medicine. He is an Institute for Functional Medicine certified practitioner. Prior to joining The UltraWellness Center, he worked as a physician at Canyon Ranch in Lenox, MA, for 10 years. Dr. LePine’s focus at The UltraWellness Center is to help his patients achieve optimal health and vitality by restoring the natural balance to both the mind and the body. His areas of interest include optimal aging, bio-detoxification, functional gastrointestinal health, systemic inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and the neurobiology of mood and cognitive disorders.

 

Dr. Emeran Mayer is the author of The Gut-Immune Connection as well as The Mind-Gut Connection. He has studied brain-body interactions for the last 40 years, is the executive director of the G. Oppenheimer Center for Neurobiology of Stress and Resilience, and is the founding director of the UCLA Brain Gut Microbiome Center at the University of California at Los Angeles. His research has been supported by the National Institutes of Health for the past 25 years, and he is considered a pioneer and world leader in the area of brain-gut microbiome interactions and its clinical implications.⁣

 

Dr. George Papanicolaou is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board certified in Family Medicine from Abington Memorial Hospital. He is also an Institute for Functional Medicine practitioner. He worked on the Navajo reservation for four years at the Chinle Comprehensive Medical Facility, where he served as the Outpatient Department Coordinator. In 2000, he founded Cornerstone Family Practice in Rowley, MA. In 2015, he established Cornerstone Personal Health, a practice dedicated entirely to Functional Medicine. Dr. Papanicolaou joined The UltraWellness Center in 2017.

Why Vegan Diets May Not Be Good For Your Health with Jayne Buxton
1:10:54

This episode is brought to you by Mitopure, InsideTracker, and Rupa Health.


The topic of veganism is hotly debated in terms of health and environmental stewardship. But how did the idea that being vegan is the best way to eat for our bodies and the planet develop in the first place? The answer is more complex than you might think. On this episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy, Jayne Buxton challenges the notion that veganism is the cure for disease and climate change and explains how we got here. 


A British-Canadian, Jayne Buxton is an author of both fiction and non-fiction. She spent fifteen years doing research-intensive work as a management consultant for a major firm before writing her 1998 book, Ending the Mother War: Starting the Workplace Revolution, which explored the entrenched positions and false choices faced by women wanting to combine motherhood with careers. Jayne subsequently spent years working in the field of work-life balance, advising both parents and corporations, before turning to writing full time. Her new book, The Great Plant-Based Con, challenges the dominant narrative about the vegan diet and proposes a compelling new perspective.

Here are more details from our interview (audio version / Apple Subscriber version):

  • The origins of the overarching mythology that veganism is best for human, animal, and planetary health (5:04 / 2:24) 
  • How Big Food, Big Agriculture, and Big Pharma benefit from widespread veganism (7:17 / 4:50) 
  • Why the movie The Game Changers was a tipping point for Jayne to write her book (10:58 / 8:13) 
  • Countries that have banned vegan diets for children (14:55 / 12:07) 
  • My experience treating vegan patients (19:01 / 16:07) 
  • Frequent health issues that occur from vegan diets (22:50 / 18:08) 
  • Navigating the science, and subsequent dietary recommendations, around vegan diets and eating meat (29:54 / 25:27) 
  • Building soil health through regenerative agriculture (51:05 / 45:35)
  • Pervasive myths around cows and methane production (55:05 / 50:40) 
  • Jayne’s recommendations for how to eat for optimal human, animal, and planetary health (1:03:53 / 59:38)

Daily Steps To Heal The Most Common Autoimmune Disease
52:40

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.

 

Every day, 80 million Americans are dealing with some form of autoimmune disease, including Hashimoto’s. Hashimoto’s is the leading cause of hypothyroidism (i.e., an underactive thyroid) in the US, and roughly 14 million people are struggling with this diagnosis. The conventional approach to treating it is based almost entirely on suppressing symptoms with drugs. However, with a Functional Medicine approach, there are so many other steps for treating the thyroid.

 

I talk with Dr. George Papanicolaou, Dr. Elizabeth Boham, and Dhru Purohit about why thorough testing is necessary for identifying Hashimoto’s and how lifestyle changes, such as removing gluten, could help to treat this condition.

 

Dr. George Papanicolaou is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board certified in Family Medicine from Abington Memorial Hospital. He is also an Institute for Functional Medicine practitioner. Upon graduation from his residency he joined the Indian Health Service. He worked on the Navajo reservation for four years at the Chinle Comprehensive Medical Facility, where he served as the Outpatient Department Coordinator. Dr. Papanicolaou joined The UltraWellness Center in 2017.

 

Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.

How Inflammation Drives Osteoporosis
47:45

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.

 

Osteoporosis is very common, especially as we age, but it doesn’t have to be the life-threatening risk that currently it is. We’ve been led to believe that getting enough calcium is the key to healthy bones. In truth, your bone health is determined by your diet, gut health and nutrient absorption, physical activity levels, muscle mass, and more.

 

I talk with Dr. Todd LePine, Dr. David Ludwig, and Dhru Purohit about the myths surrounding bone health and why it’s important to take steps to strengthen your bones at every age.

 

Dr. Todd LePine graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and is board certified in Internal Medicine, specializing in Integrative Functional Medicine. He is an Institute for Functional Medicine certified practitioner. Prior to joining The UltraWellness Center, he worked as a physician at Canyon Ranch in Lenox, MA, for 10 years. Dr. LePine’s focus at The UltraWellness Center is to help his patients achieve optimal health and vitality by restoring the natural balance to both the mind and the body. His areas of interest include optimal aging, bio-detoxification, functional gastrointestinal health, systemic inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and the neurobiology of mood and cognitive disorders. 

 

David S. Ludwig, MD, PhD, is an endocrinologist and researcher at Boston Children’s Hospital. He holds the rank of Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Professor of Nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health. Dr. Ludwig is codirector of the New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center and founder of the Optimal Weight for Life program, one of the country’s oldest and largest clinics for the care of overweight children. For more than 25 years, Dr. Ludwig has studied the effects of dietary composition on metabolism, body weight, and risk for chronic disease. Described as an “obesity warrior” by Time Magazine, Dr. Ludwig has fought for fundamental policy changes to improve the food environment.

 

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.

A Harvard Psychiatrist Rethinks Mental Health As A Metabolic Disease with Dr. Christopher Palmer
1:09:45

This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox, InsideTracker, and Cozy Earth.

 

The common medical approach to psychiatric disorders is to treat the symptoms. But the truth is that we just don’t know how the biological, psychological, and social risk factors and symptoms of these problems fit together. We don’t know what the underlying pathology is. I was excited to talk to Dr. Christopher Palmer who is disrupting the paradigm of psychiatry, about new ways of treating psychiatric disorders, specifically with the ketogenic diet and mitochondrial repair. 

 

Dr. Palmer is a psychiatrist and researcher working at the interface of metabolism and mental health. He is the Director of the Department of Postgraduate and Continuing Education at McLean Hospital and an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. For over 25 years, he has held leadership roles in psychiatric education, conducted research, and worked with people who have treatment-resistant mental illnesses. He has been pioneering the use of the medical ketogenic diet in the treatment of psychiatric disorders—conducting research, treating patients, writing, and speaking around the world on this topic.

The Daily Practice That Will Change Your Life And Improve Your Health
47:06

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and Paleovalley.


If there was something you could do every day to boost your focus and productivity, feel energized, reduce stress, sleep better, maintain a positive outlook, and support whole-body health, wouldn’t you do it? It’s for all these reasons, and more, that meditation is a foundational pillar to good health. 


In today’s episode, I talk with Daniel Goleman, Emily Fletcher, and Dr. Joe Dispenza about how meditation changes lives by reducing stress, creating resilience, and improving emotional intelligence.

 

Daniel Goleman is best known for his worldwide bestseller Emotional Intelligence and most recently coauthored the book Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body. Goleman has been ranked among the 25 most influential business leaders by several business publications including Time and the Wall Street Journal. Apart from his writing on emotional intelligence, Goleman has written books on topics including self-deception, creativity, transparency, meditation, social and emotional learning, eco-literacy, and the ecological crisis.

 

Emily Fletcher is the founder of Ziva, the creator of The Ziva Technique, and a leading expert in meditation for high performers. She is also the author of Stress Less, Accomplish More.

 

Dr. Joe Dispenza’s passion can be found at the intersection of the latest findings from the fields of neuroscience, epigenetics, and quantum physics to explore the science behind spontaneous remissions. He uses that knowledge to teach people how to heal their bodies of health conditions, make significant changes in their lives, and evolve their consciousness. Since 2010, he has partnered with scientists and universities to perform extensive research on the effects that meditation has on the brain and body. He and his team have also studied gene expression, protein regulation, immune response, neurotransmitter changes, telomere length, and variations in bioactive cellular metabolic particles in novice and advanced meditators.

 

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and Paleovalley.

The Secrets Of Activating Your Longevity Switches with Dr. Matt Cook
1:27:03

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, Rupa Health, and Pendulum.

 

What’s the point in living a long time? Being fully in contribution to life. I want to do that feeling healthy and vital, not sick and decrepit. Everything we do speaks to our genes—the food we eat, our relationships, our environment. You’re either telling your genes to age faster or age slower. So I’m constantly working on how to give my genes the right information to do the latter. 


Today’s podcast episode was recorded on my recent trip to Antarctica with my own doctor, Dr. Matt Cook. He’s helped me heal and has integrated so many different forms of technologies and science to rebuild people’s health from the ground up. Dr. Cook is the Founder of BioReset® Medical. He is a board-certified anesthesiologist with over 20 years of experience practicing medicine, focusing the last 14 years on Functional and Regenerative Medicine. He graduated from the University of Washington School of Medicine, completed his anesthesiology residency at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), and completed a fellowship in Functional Medicine.

5 Steps To Get To The Root Cause Of Your Symptoms
1:12:21

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and InsideTracker.

 

This myth is pervasive throughout medicine: if you know the name of your disease, you know what’s wrong with you. In truth, diagnoses are just names we associate with a collection of symptoms. They tell us nothing about why someone has those symptoms—the root causes of the “disease.” Functional Medicine seeks to dig deeper to look for the root cause of symptoms.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Elizabeth Boham, Dr. Todd LePine, and Dr. George Papanicolaou about how patients miss out on true healing when the root cause of their symptoms is not addressed.

 

Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing, she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.

 

Dr. Todd LePine graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and is board certified in Internal Medicine, specializing in Integrative Functional Medicine. He is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner. Prior to joining The UltraWellness Center, he worked as a physician at Canyon Ranch in Lenox, MA, for 10 years. Dr. LePine’s focus at The UltraWellness Center is to help his patients achieve optimal health and vitality by restoring the natural balance to both the mind and the body. His areas of interest include optimal aging, bio-detoxification, functional gastrointestinal health, systemic inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and the neurobiology of mood and cognitive disorders.

 

Dr. George Papanicolaou is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board certified in Family Medicine from Abington Memorial Hospital. He is also an Institute for Functional Medicine Practitioner. In 2000, he founded Cornerstone Family Practice in Rowley, MA. He practiced with a philosophy centered on personal relationships and treating the whole person, not just not the disease. He calls his philosophy “Whole Life Wellness.” Over time, as the healthcare system made it harder for patients to receive this kind of personal care, Dr. Papanicolaou decided a change was needed. He began training in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine. In 2015, he established Cornerstone Personal Health, a practice dedicated entirely to Functional Medicine. Dr. Papanicolaou joined The UltraWellness Center in 2017.

Near-death experiences aren’t that uncommon for the world’s most technical mountaineers. Summiting Mt. Everest is sure to leave anyone feeling truly awe-inspired.

Which Supplements Are Most Beneficial?
1:08:06

We are living in a time unlike any before. For multiple reasons, we are now unable to get optimal amounts of all of the nutrients we need to function the way we were designed to. That’s why we need to turn to certain supplements to combat the nutritional deficiencies—like vitamin D, magnesium, omega 3 fatty acids, and more—the majority of us are faced with. 

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dhru Purohit, Dr. Elizabeth Boham, and Dr. James DiNicolantonio about why our modern diet and lifestyle are leaving us nutritionally deficient, the benefits of supplementation, and the importance of adequate magnesium levels.

How To Move From Toxic Relationships And Sex To Healing Relationships And Sex with Angelika Alana
1:07:08

This episode is brought to you by Gut Food, BiOptimizers, InsideTracker, and Pendulum.

 

Relationships can feel complicated. We often go into them looking for others to fulfill whatever we refuse to give ourselves. We want our unmet needs to be met by this other person, without doing the inner work to help ourselves. Owning our needs actually makes it easier for other people to meet our needs. This sounds counterintuitive, but it’s one of those breakthroughs that can really turn toxic relationship patterns around. 


Today I’m excited to share a conversation with my good friend Angelika Alana, all about tuning into our bodies, our physical and emotional needs, and healing our connection to ourselves and others. Angelika is the founder and CEO of the Somatic Healing Institute. She has been featured in Vanity Fair, Well+Good, and Modern Luxury. She certifies coaches and facilitators in her transformational body-based healing method. She has traveled and studied extensively in Indonesia, Brazil, Australia, and the UK, and is a massive foodie with her husband Patrick Drake, co-founder of Hello Fresh.

The Best Foods To Heal The Gut
44:24

This episode is brought to you by Gut Food, Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and InsideTracker.

 

Our gut, and the tons of bacteria that reside within it, regulates many of our bodily functions, from creating vitamins to controlling our immune system, our brain function, and, of course, our metabolism and weight. The gut is the number-one place to investigate when healing the body of any chronic symptoms or diseases. If your gut isn’t healthy, you’re not healthy!

 

In this episode of my Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about why prebiotics are vital in creating a healthy gut. These are the things your good gut bugs love to munch on. In turn, they produce beneficial compounds such as short-chain fatty acids, which have been shown to help prevent things like colon cancer. 

 

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.

What To Eat For Balanced Blood Sugar
1:12:40

This episode is brought to you by Gut Food, Vuori, and Paleovalley.

 

Have you ever wondered what the worst candy or cereal for your blood sugar is, or what the best thing to order at your favorite restaurant might be? Thanks to continuous glucose monitors, this is knowledge we’ll all be able to take advantage of in the near future. With insulin resistance playing a key role in the majority of the chronic diseases of our time, monitoring how our blood sugar responds to different foods is a huge step towards health.

 

In today's episode, I talk with Dr. Casey Means, Jessie Inchauspé, and Dhru Purohit about the best and the worst foods to eat for glucose management, as well as tips and tricks for combining food for optimal blood sugar balance.

 

Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and Cofounder of the 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.  

 

Jessie 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.

 

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.

What Ancients Cultures Have To Teach Us About Being Human And Happy with Wade Davis
1:16:32

This episode is brought to you by Gut Food, Cozy Earth, InsideTracker, and Rupa Health.


Many of us are feeling a crisis of meaning; feeling we’ve lost our way amongst the stressors and distractions of modern life. We are more isolated, divided, and sick than ever before. Personally, I always turn to nature when I’m feeling lost. And in traveling, talking to interesting people, and learning about the world, I’ve found that ancient cultures and their relationships to nature can teach us volumes when it comes to rediscovering connection, health, and meaning. 


Today, I’m excited to share a conversation I had with Wade Davis, all about culture, the depth of the natural world, belief systems, ethnobotany, psychedelics, and more. Wade Davis is a writer, photographer, and filmmaker. Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society from 2000 to 2013, he is currently Professor of Anthropology and the BC Leadership Chair in Cultures and Ecosystems at Risk at the University of British Columbia. He is the author of 23 books, including One River, The Wayfinders, and Into the Silence, and he was the winner of the 2012 Samuel Johnson prize, the top nonfiction prize in the English language. His latest book is Magdalena: River of Dreams. Wade’s many film credits include Light at the Edge of the World, an eight-hour documentary series written and produced for the NGS.

Do You Need To Take Probiotics?
37:56

This episode is brought to you by Gut Food, Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and InsideTracker.

 

Probiotics are critical to protecting and rebuilding the gut. They compete with bad gut bugs and yeast, modulate intestinal function, and are essential to changing and improving immune function. They are also anti-inflammatory, they help us break down food, and they build nutrients. In this episode of my Masterclass series, the second in a series on gut health, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about how probiotics work in the gut, the best fermented foods to eat, and much more.

 

Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry.

Daily Steps To Prevent Heart Disease
1:01:38

This episode is brought to you by Gut Food, ButcherBox, and Paleovalley.


Heart disease is the number-one killer in the world, and it is often thought of as a cholesterol problem. When you take a closer look, however, there are other factors that drive this chronic disease that can’t be fixed by the most commonly prescribed medication: statin drugs. The way you eat, how much you exercise, how you manage stress, and more all contribute to heart disease.


In this episode, I talk with Dr. Aseem Malhotra, Dr. Stanley Hazen, and Dr. Cindy Geyer about why heart disease is easier to prevent than to reverse, why statins are not the answer in most cases, and how the gut microbiome is connected to heart health.

 

Dr. Aseem Malhotra is an NHS-trained consultant, cardiologist, and visiting professor of Evidence-Based Medicine at the Bahiana School of Medicine and Public Health in Salvador, Brazil. He is a pioneer of the lifestyle medicine movement in the UK and in 2018 was ranked by software company Onalytica as the number-one doctor in the world influencing obesity thinking. He is the author of, The Pioppi Diet, coauthored with Donal O'Neill, The 21-Day Immunity Plan, and, A Statin-Free Life.


Dr. Stanley Hazen is both the chair of the Department of Cellular & Molecular Medicine at the Lerner Research Institute and section head of Preventive Cardiology & Rehabilitation at the Heart and Vascular Institute of the Cleveland Clinic. He’s published more than 400 peer-reviewed articles and has over 50 patents from his pioneering discoveries in atherosclerosis and inflammatory disease. Dr. Hazen made the seminal discovery linking microbial pathways to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease.


Dr. Cindy Geyer received her Bachelor of Science and her Doctor of Medicine degrees, with honors, from the Ohio State University. She completed her residency in internal medicine at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY, and is triple board certified in internal medicine, integrative medicine, and lifestyle medicine. She joined The Ultrawellness Center in 2021 after practicing and serving as the medical director at Canyon Ranch for 23 years.

Why Gut Issues Are On The Rise And How To Fix It
1:17:50

The gut microbiome plays a role in every disease, so why aren’t we doing more to protect and restore it? One third to one half of all Americans have gut issues due to the constant consumption of industrialized foods, glyphosate, food additives, and more. This is a problem—and it’s time for us to take action.


In this episode of my Masterclass series, the first in a series on gut health, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about the importance of polyphenols for our gut health. We also discuss my gut-health journey, which led me to dig deep into understanding the value of a healthy gut and diverse microbiome, and how to get there.

Resolving Acne, Psoriasis, And Other Skin Issues Using Functional Medicine
52:48

This episode is brought to you by Mitopure and Levels.

 

Skin problems like acne, psoriasis, and eczema are often treated with over-the-counter lotions, creams, and potions or even with antibiotics. But while these options may reduce symptoms temporarily, they don't get to the root cause of the problem. In Functional Medicine, we dig deep to determine the underlying cause of skin issues, which often originate in the gut—treat the gut, and the skin clears up.


In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Elizabeth Boham, Dhru Purohit, and Dr. Todd LePine about the pathophysiology of acne, why diet matters for skin health, and how gut health is related to skin health.

 

Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing, she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.

 

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. Todd LePine graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and is board certified in Internal Medicine, specializing in Integrative Functional Medicine. He is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner. Prior to joining The UltraWellness Center, he worked as a physician at Canyon Ranch in Lenox, MA, for 10 years. Dr. LePine’s focus at The UltraWellness Center is to help his patients achieve optimal health and vitality by restoring natural balance to both the mind and the body. His areas of interest include optimal aging, bio-detoxification, functional gastrointestinal health, systemic inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and the neurobiology of mood and cognitive disorders. Dr. LePine enjoys skiing, kayaking, hiking, camping, and golfing in the beautiful Berkshires and is a fitness enthusiast.

Creating Healthy Habits To Stay Young As You Age
46:32

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and InsideTracker.


​​What you eat literally controls almost every function of your body and mind. Food connects us to one another and to our bodies. At the same time, what we eat is only one “ingredient” needed to make a healthy human. We need real, whole, fresh food, but we also need things like movement, connection, meaning, and purpose. When you take out the bad stuff and put in the good stuff, you create balance. Your body knows how to create health from those ingredients.


In this episode, I feature an in-depth discussion on the importance of community, mindset, and optimism when it comes to increasing our healthspan from my Longevity Roadmap docu-series. In this series, I am joined by my colleagues at The UltraWellness Center: Elizabeth Boham, MD, MS, RD, Medical Director and Physician; Todd LePine, MD, Physician; and George Papanicolaou, DO, Physician. In this conversation we also delve into the fascinating topic of innovative anti-aging therapies based on the newest longevity research.

How To Support Our Emotional Health And Process Grief
57:23

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and ButcherBox.

 

Experiencing feelings of grief is a natural part of the human experience. While it can be difficult to sit with hard feelings such as grief, avoiding our emotions only makes them louder. Through practice, we can learn to accept our feelings in the moment. We can work to break the pattern of being at war with the present moment and let our feelings come and go as needed.  


In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Joan Rosenberg, Susan David, and Tara Brach about situations that prompt grief, why facing our emotions is healthier than bottling them up, and how to accept difficult emotions.

 

Dr. Joan Rosenberg is a cutting-edge psychologist who is known as an innovative thinker, acclaimed speaker, and trainer. A California-licensed psychologist, Dr. Rosenberg speaks on how to build confidence, emotional strength, and resilience; achieving emotional, conversational, and relationship mastery; integrating neuroscience and psychotherapy; and suicide prevention. She is the author of 90 Seconds to a Life You Love: How to Master Your Difficult Feelings to Cultivate Lasting Confidence, Resilience, and Authenticity.

 

Susan David, PhD, is one of the world’s leading management thinkers and an award-winning Harvard Medical School psychologist. Her book, Emotional Agility, describes the psychological skills critical to thriving in times of complexity and change. Susan’s TED Talk on the topic went viral, with over 1 million views in its first week of release. She is a frequent contributor to Harvard Business Review, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal and a frequent guest on national radio and television. Susan is the CEO of Evidence Based Psychology, on the faculty at Harvard Medical School, a cofounder of the Institute of Coaching (a Harvard Medical School/McLean affiliate), and on the Scientific Advisory Boards of Thrive Global and Virgin Pulse.

 

Tara Brach holds a PhD in clinical psychology and teaches meditation internationally. Founder of the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, DC (IMCW), Tara is the author of the bestsellers Radical Acceptance, Radical Compassion, True Refuge, and her latest book, Trusting the Gold. Tara’s weekly podcasts are downloaded over 2 million times each month.

What To Eat For Health And Longevity
39:53

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, Cozy Earth, and InsideTracker.


Our bodies are literally made out of the food we eat. So ask yourself, do you want to be a twinkie or a raspberry? Real, whole foods contain information in the form of vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, fats, protein, phytonutrients, and fiber. These compounds impact every node of the Functional Medicine matrix, like our vascular and immune systems, detox and energy pathways, microbiome, and everything in between. 


That’s why food is our most powerful tool for getting our healthspan to match our lifespan. Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, we’re featuring an episode of The Longevity Roadmap docu-series devoted to using the power of food for optimal health and longevity. I’m joined by my colleagues from The UltraWellness Center, Dr. Elizabeth Boham and Dr. Todd LePine.

The Reemergence Of Psychedelic Medicine For Anxiety, Depression, and End-of-Life Care
1:08:35

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and Rupa Health.


Psychedelics have gotten a bad rap. Often associated with the small period of time they became popular in the 1960s, they were researched in clinical, cultural, and spiritual contexts for many decades prior to that. Now we are seeing an uptick in the interest of drugs like this, which include compounds like psilocybin from certain species of mushrooms, for therapeutic uses. Trials are finding amazing effects on anxiety, depression, PTSD, and fear of death by using psychedelics in a responsible and highly controlled environment. 


In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Anthony Bossis, Michael Pollan, and Rameshwar Das about the neurobiology of psychedelics, how they can help to shift mindset, and the story of Ram Dass.

 

Anthony P. Bossis, PhD, conducts FDA-approved clinical trials in the reemerging field of psychedelic research. He is a clinical psychologist and clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at NYU School of Medicine, where he investigates the effects of psilocybin, a naturally occurring compound found in specific species of mushrooms.

 

Michael Pollan is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Cooked, Food Rules, In Defense of Food, The Omnivore's Dilemma, The Botany of Desire, How to Change Your Mind, and This Is Your Mind on Plants

 

Rameshwar Das has been navigating a spiritual path for 50 years. Ramesh met Ram Dass in 1968 and spent time with Neem Karoli Baba in India from 1970–72. He learned Vipassana meditation from Goenka in India. Ramesh has worked as an artist, photographer, environmentalist, and writer. He has collaborated on many projects with Ram Dass over the years, including the original Be Here Now and the Love Serve Remember recordings, and he has coauthored three books with Ram Dass: Be Love Now, Polishing the Mirror, and Being Ram Dass.

How Balanced Hormones Lead To Healthy Aging
40:08

This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Athletic Greens.


Hormones are like a symphony, with each one acting as a specialized instrument to keep our bodies in tune. But as we age, those instruments start to get a little rusty. Small changes over time create a variety of imbalances, until one day we wake up realizing we’re flat and out of tune. This leads to things like menopausal symptoms in women, hair loss and belly fat in men, thyroid dysfunction, bone loss, and so much more. 


That’s why it’s never too early, or too late, to start optimizing hormonal balance. Today we’re featuring an episode of the Longevity Roadmap docu-series that takes a deep dive into hormones and how they play a critical role in how well, or poorly, we age. I was joined by two of my colleagues from The UltraWellness Center, Dr. Elizabeth Boham and Dr. Todd LePine.

Making Your Body An Unwelcome Place For Cancer To Grow
42:49

This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox, Rupa Health, and InsideTracker.


Cancer is a topic that scares just as many people as it directly impacts, which is nearly everyone. While the conventional medicine approach to treating the disease is very important and lifesaving, Functional Medicine takes a slightly different approach. In Functional Medicine, we look below the surface to identify what imbalance is allowing the cancer to grow. By focusing on the terrain, you can learn how to reduce the risk of weeds like cancer. 


In this episode, I’ll be featuring an in-depth discussion on cancer from my Longevity Roadmap docu-series. In this series, I am joined by my colleagues at The UltraWellness Center: Elizabeth Boham, MD, MS, RD, Medical Director and Physician; Todd LePine, MD, Physician; and George Papanicolaou, DO, Physician.

How Innovators Are Disrupting Our Broken Food System
1:02:04

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and Paleovalley.

 

Our current food system is not working. Food waste is at an all-time high, food deserts exist in many neighborhoods, and our produce is falling short in flavor and nutrients. The good news is that innovators in various fields are implementing ideas that promote better access to fresh, nutritious, and tastier food for everyone.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Kavita Shukla, Tobias Peggs, and Dan Barber about a creative way to reduce food waste, growing the number of farmers in urban areas, and ideas to improve the flavor and nutrition profile of produce.

 

Kavita Shukla is the founder and CEO of The FRESHGLOW Co. and the inventor of FreshPaper, a simple innovation taking on the massive global challenge of food waste by keeping food fresher longer. FreshPaper is used by farmers and families across the globe, and The FRESHGLOW Co. has partnered with some of the largest retailers in the world, from Whole Foods to Walmart, so that people everywhere can take advantage of this incredible product and the goodness of real food.

 

Tobias Peggs is the cofounder and CEO of Square Roots, the Brooklyn-based urban farming company known for changing the way people think about growing local food and training the country’s future generations of farmers. Previously, he led Aviary, a mobile photo-editing company, as its CEO until its acquisition by Adobe and was also CEO at OneRiot, a social media analytics company, since acquired by Walmart. Tobias grew up in England and has a PhD in Artificial Intelligence from Cardiff University. 

 

Dan Barber is breaking the conventional ways we eat, cook, and think about food. He is the chef and co-owner of Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns and the author of The Third Plate. He also cofounded Row 7 Seed Company, a seed company bringing together chefs and plant breeders in the development of new varieties of vegetables and grains. Dan has received multiple James Beard awards including Best Chef: New York City (2006) and the country's Outstanding Chef (2009). In this episode, it’s clear how mutually passionate Dan and I are about changing the current food system and doing so in a way that promotes health and supports the environment.

What Causes Rapid Aging?
38:20

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Pendulum.


Aging shouldn’t be something we dread; it should be something we celebrate. Yet, as a society, we are sicker than ever. We are so fixated on keeping people alive longer, but what about keeping people healthier? This is the difference between healthspan and life span. Your life span is how long you live. Your healthspan is how long you live a healthy, vibrant life. 


I’ve learned so much about this topic over the last few years that my team at The UltraWellness Center and I got together to make a docu-series about the Functional Medicine approach to longevity. Over the next few weeks, I’m excited to share this series with you here. In this episode, we dive into an overview of the seven systems of Functional Medicine and how you can optimize these systems to improve your healthspan.

Redesigning Our Food System To Make Health Accessible For All
1:02:32

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and Rupa Health.

 

We are living in an epidemic of chronic disease that is destroying our health, our communities, and our economy. The common denominator between all of these things is food, or more specifically, our food system. The way our food is grown, transported, processed, and consumed is making us sick and driving health disparities related to income and race, especially among marginalized groups.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Marcia Chatelain, Dr. Rupa Marya, Raj Patel, and Karen Washington about creating a society that cultivates health, how our existing social structures predispose us to illness, and how we can make great changes to our food system through grassroots efforts. 

 

Dr. Marcia Chatelain is a professor of history and African American studies at Georgetown University. The author of South Side Girls: Growing up in the Great Migration, she teaches about women’s and girls’ history, as well as black capitalism. Her latest book, Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America, examines the intricate relationship among African American politicians, civil rights organizations, communities, and the fast food industry.

 

Dr. Rupa Marya is an associate professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, where she practices and teaches Internal Medicine. Her research examines the health impacts of social systems, from agriculture to policing. She is a cofounder of the Do No Harm Coalition, a collective of health workers committed to addressing disease through structural change. 

 

Raj Patel is a research professor at the University of Texas at Austin’s Lyndon B Johnson School of Public Affairs, a professor in the university’s department of nutrition, and a research associate at Rhodes University, South Africa. He is the author of Stuffed and Starved, the New York Times bestselling The Value of Nothing, and coauthor of A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things.

 

Karen Washington is a farmer, activist, and food advocate. She is the co-owner and farmer at Rise & Root Farm in Chester, New York. Karen cofounded Black Urban Growers (BUGS), an organization supporting growers in both urban and rural settings. In 2012, Ebony magazine voted her one of the 100 most influential African Americans in the country, and in 2014 Karen was the recipient of the James Beard Leadership Award.

Why Sugar And Fructose Are So Deadly with Dr. Richard Johnson
1:14:14

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and HigherDOSE.


Eighty-eight percent of people are metabolically unhealthy, and since the 1920s we’ve shamed them into believing it’s their fault—that they should just eat fewer calories and exercise more. 


But the real culprit is sugar and the processed foods that contain it. The majority of foods on our market shelves contain insane amounts of added sugar and high-fructose corn syrup—ingredients that literally slow down our metabolism and turn on our internal fat storage switch. That means we have the power to turn that switch off by choosing to use food as medicine. Today, I’m excited to talk to Dr. Richard Johnson about how our biological fat storage process works and what we can do to positively affect it. 


Dr. Richard Johnson is a Professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado in Denver and has been a practicing physician and clinical scientist for over 25 years. He is internationally recognized for his seminal work on the role of sugar and its component fructose, in obesity and diabetes. His work has also suggested a fundamental role for uric acid (which is generated during fructose metabolism) in metabolic syndrome. He previously authored The Sugar Fix with Timothy Gower in 2008, and The Fat Switch in 2012. His new book, Nature Wants Us to Be Fat was just released.

  • What makes sugar so bad? (5:50 / 2:44) 
  • How our body’s fat-storage switch works (7:25 / 4:06) 
  • Why eating certain foods makes us hungrier (15:07 / 11:58)
  • Why eating sugar slows down your metabolism (18:08 / 14:59)  
  • Comparing high-fructose corn syrup to table sugar (27:19 / 21:55)
  • The physiology of how fructose affects your body’s energy production and weight gain (32:45 / 27:52) 
  • The difference between eating a high-carb and low-carb diet, even if calorie intake is the same (42:30 / 36:46) 
  • Why mitochondrial function is key to health and longevity (53:35 / 49:27) /
  • Supplementing with vitamin C (59:44 / 55:51)

How To Reverse Or Reduce Your Risk Of Alzheimer’s And Dementia
1:02:18

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and ButcherBox.

 

For so long, we’ve been told that memory loss and dementia are just normal parts of aging.

We now know it doesn’t have to be that way, and that there are many measures we can proactively take to avoid cognitive decline as we age. Emerging research is helping us look at new ways to treat and even prevent devastating neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia, giving people a newfound sense of hope.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Marwan Sabbagh, Dr. Richard Isaacson, and Dr. Jay Lombard about the role of genetics in brain disorders, lifestyle habits you can start right now to reduce your risk or reverse symptoms, and why we need to look at bacteria as a cause of neurodegenerative disease. 

 

Dr. Marwan Sabbagh is a board-certified neurologist and considered one of the leading experts in Alzheimer’s and dementia. He is on the editorial board for the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease and BMC Neurology and is now Editor-in-Chief of Neurology and Therapy. Dr. Sabbagh is the author of The Alzheimer’s Answer: Reduce Your Risk and Keep Your Brain Healthy and The Alzheimer’s Prevention Cookbook: 100 Recipes to Boost Brain Health. His latest book, Fighting for My Life: How to Thrive in the Shadow of Alzheimer’s, is now available.


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 and New York-Presbyterian. He remains as Adjunct Associate Professor of Neurology in the Department of Neurology at Weill Cornell. 


Dr. Jay Lombard is an internationally acclaimed neurologist, author, and keynote speaker specializing in neuroimmunological conditions and medical mysteries. Dr. Lombard integrates biological, psychological, and existential components in his holistic treatment approach. Dr. Lombard’s clinical experience revealed an interesting pattern: one patient with ALS also had small-intestine bacterial overgrowth, another had ulcerative colitis, yet another had Crohn’s, and so on. He started seeing the connections between these bacterial imbalances and Clostridium difficile, or C. diff, and the link to neurological symptoms.

I recently took a life changing trip to Antarctica to see what is really happening to our environment as the result of climate change. Before you roll your eyes or gloss over this episode, I want you to understand this: Climate change is not just floods, droughts, a hotter planet, and deadly weather events, which are all scary enough to think about. It affects our whole body health—impacting chronic disease, infectious diseases, our food supply, our mental health, and so much more. 


On my way to Antarctica, I had an important conversation with my friend Amanda Ravenhill about one of the most critical aspects of climate change and human health—our food system. We also dive into why apathy around climate change is so dangerous.

How Men's Health Is Affected By Stress & Blood Sugar Imbalance
1:00:08

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and Rupa Health.

 

Many of us are living our lives out of balance and are stressed from the time we wake up until the time our heads hit the pillow. The problem is that chronic stress causes inflammation and is behind many of the health conditions that affect men specifically. Stress can drive low testosterone, for instance, which is a common problem for men that drives many other health issues. 

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. George Papanicolaou, Dr. Louis Ignarro, and Jessie Inchauspé about low testosterone and its effects on men, the heart-protective molecule nitric oxide, the importance of minimizing blood sugar spikes, and much more. 

 

Dr. George Papanicolaou is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board certified in Family Medicine from Abington Memorial Hospital. He is also an Institute for Functional Medicine practitioner. Upon graduation from his residency he joined the Indian Health Service. He worked on the Navajo reservation for four years at the Chinle Comprehensive Medical Facility, where he served as the Outpatient Department Coordinator. In 2000, he founded Cornerstone Family Practice in Rowley, MA. He began training in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine. In 2015, he established Cornerstone Personal Health, a practice dedicated entirely to Functional Medicine. Dr. Papanicolaou joined The UltraWellness Center in 2017.


Dr. Louis Ignarro is a medical research scientist who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his breakthrough discovery of how nitric oxide positively impacts health and longevity. 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, with over 35 years of experience teaching.


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.

Prevent Acne By Getting To Its Root Cause
42:30

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and Vuori.


Acne is the number-one skin condition in the United States, affecting not just millions of teenagers but an increasing number of adults under the guise of hormones. Typically, the first thing we reach for to deal with acne is a lotion, potion, or cream to apply to the skin—and conventional medicine doctors frequently prescribe birth-control pills. However, these approaches do not target the root cause of acne.


In this episode of my Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about the biggest triggers of acne, why we all react differently, and the top nutrients for skin health. We also discuss some frequently asked questions from our community about acne during puberty and more.


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.

Working Together To Reverse Global Warming
1:19:20

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and Beekeeper’s.

 

We are in a climate crisis. Although we might feel helpless and hopeless at times about this crisis, we actually have the ability to contribute to the reversal of global warming. It starts with our food choices and using our dollar to support companies that have plans to do their part and sequester carbon. In today’s episode, I talk with Paul Hawken, David Wallace-Wells, Jared Blumenfeld, and Tom Newmark about the urgency of taking action to stabilize the earth’s climate. 

 

Paul Hawken is an environmentalist, entrepreneur, author, and activist who has dedicated his life to environmental sustainability and changing the relationship between business and the environment. He is one of the environmental movement’s leading voices, and a pioneering architect of corporate reform with respect to ecological practices. Paul is Executive Director of Project Drawdown, a nonprofit organization dedicated to researching when and how global warming can be reversed. He is on a mission to present real, already existing solutions to reverse global warming.

 

David Wallace-Wells is Deputy Editor of New York Magazine and the author of the international bestseller The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming, published in February 2019, which the New York Times called both "brilliant" and "the most terrifying book I have ever read." While the real truth about climate change can be scary, it’s a more important conversation than ever. Throughout our talk, David shares the history of climate change and the three major issues at hand: speed, scope, and severity.

 

Jared Blumenfeld is California’s Secretary for Environmental Protection. Appointed by Governor Gavin Newsom in January, he is one of America’s most innovative environmental leaders, with more than 25 years of environmental policy and management experience at the local, national, and international levels.

 

Tom Newmark is the co-owner of Finca Luna Nueva Lodge, an organic and biodynamic farm and ecolodge in the mountainous rainforest of Costa Rica that teaches regenerative agriculture. Tom is the cofounder and board chair of The Carbon Underground, cofounder of the Soil Carbon Initiative, and a founding member of the Regenerative Agriculture Initiative of California State University, Chico.

Activating Your Natural Healing Systems with Dr. Andrew Weil
1:09:14

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, InsideTracker, and Rupa Health.

 

When we think about optimizing health, we need to think about redesigning life in a way that supports a healthspan that matches our lifespan. But sadly, most of us know more about our cars or iPhones than we do about our bodies. One of the greatest downfalls of that is that many people don’t trust our bodies’ natural ability to heal. Today, I’m so excited to talk to an old friend and pioneer of integrative medicine whose work has guided my path as a doctor, Dr. Andrew Weil. We take a deep dive into the body’s innate healing capacity and how food is our greatest ally to support that process. 


Dr. Andrew Weil is a world-renowned leader and pioneer in the field of integrative medicine. Combining a Harvard education and a lifetime of practicing natural and preventive medicine, he is the founder and director of the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, where he is a clinical professor of medicine and professor of public health. A New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Weil is the author of 15 books on health and wellbeing, including Mind Over Meds: Know When Drugs Are Necessary, When Alternatives Are Better, and When to Let Your Body Heal on Its Own; Fast Food, Good Food; True Food: Seasonal, Sustainable, Simple, Pure; Spontaneous Happiness; Healthy Aging; and Eight Weeks to Optimum Health. He is the editorial director of DrWeil.com, the leading online resource for healthy living based on the philosophy of integrative medicine. He is also a founder and partner in the growing family of True Food Kitchen restaurants.

How To Prevent Childhood Obesity And Create Health For Our Kids
1:04:21

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and Rupa Health.

 

The foundation we set for our children’s health in childhood—starting even before conception—will carry them throughout their lives. Yet a third of all American children are overweight or obese, and we are seeing an increase in type 2 diabetes in children. 

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Elizabeth Boham, Sam Kass, and Dr. Tracy Shafizadeh about the urgency of prioritizing and establishing good nutrition habits in infancy, in the home as the child grows, and in school. 

 

Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.

 

After cooking for the Obamas in Chicago for two years, Sam Kass joined the White House kitchen staff in 2009. During his White House tenure, he took on several additional roles, including Executive Director of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign and Senior White House Policy Advisor for Nutrition. As one of the First Lady’s longest-serving advisors, he helped Mrs. Obama create the first major vegetable garden at the White House since Eleanor Roosevelt’s victory garden. Currently, Sam is a partner at Acre Venture Partners. Acre is a venture-capital fund investing in the future of food with a mission to improve human and environmental health in the food system. The fund focuses on early-stage, highly disruptive impactful companies in the food system focused on agriculture, the supply chain, and the consumer. Sam is also the author of Eat a Little Better: Great Flavor, Good Health, Better World.

 

Dr. Tracy Shafizadeh is leading the work in understanding the infant microbiome. She is a nutritional scientist who helps new and expectant moms learn about creating healthy gut bugs in their babies. She translates her extensive scientific knowledge of breastmilk and the gut microbiome into practical terms to help parents understand how a balanced gut from infancy can lead to a healthy immune system and metabolism for life. Dr. Shafizadeh received her PhD in nutritional biology from the University of California, Davis, and spends her free time "loving the guts" out of her two boys.

How To Use Food As Medicine with Dr. William Li
1:14:07

This episode is brought to you by Mitopure, InsideTracker, and Cozy Earth.


Humans have coevolved with food and its medicinal actions on our bodies, meaning we have actual cell receptors for specific food-derived molecules. So why aren’t doctors trained in how to use food as medicine? We’re taught all about using pharmaceuticals to affect our biology, but the power of food is left high and dry. I think this is a foundational area of medical training we need to change. That’s why I’m so excited to talk to one of my favorite people and thinkers in the world of food and medicine on this episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy, Dr. William Li. 


Dr. William Li is a world-renowned physician, scientist, speaker, and author of Eat to Beat Disease: The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself. He is best known for leading the Angiogenesis Foundation. His groundbreaking work has impacted more than 70 diseases including cancer, diabetes, blindness, heart disease, and obesity. His TED Talk, Can We Eat to Starve Cancer? has garnered more than 11 million views, and he has appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, Martha Stewart Live, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, Voice of America, and has presented at the Vatican’s Unite to Cure conference. An author of over 100 scientific publications in leading journals such as Science, The New England Journal of Medicine, The Lancet, and more, Dr. Li has served on the faculties of Harvard, Tufts, and Dartmouth Medical School.

40:26

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Thrive Market, and Pendulum.

How To Resolve Your Irregular Periods, Mood Swings, And Sleepless Nights
56:24

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and Paleovalley.

 

Seventy-five percent of women experience daily symptoms due to hormonal imbalances. Some of these symptoms are irritating, like insomnia, sugar cravings, fluid retention, moodiness, and headaches, while others can be more devastating, such as infertility. Often, many of these symptoms are written off as “normal” and just a part of a woman’s cycle or transition into menopause, but the truth is that there are many things we can do to reverse them to live each day more comfortably. 

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Elizabeth Boham and Dr. Sara Gottfried about how many women’s health issues can be resolved using a Functional Medicine approach. We discuss how PCOS, debilitating PMS, and other hormonal imbalances often stem from diet and exposure to environmental toxins.

 

Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing, she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.

 

Dr. Sara Gottfried is a board-certified physician who graduated from Harvard and MIT. She practices evidence-based, integrative, precision, and Functional Medicine. She is a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Integrative Medicine and Nutritional Sciences at Thomas Jefferson University, and Director of Precision Medicine at the Marcus Institute of Integrative Health. Her three New York Times bestselling books are The Hormone Cure, The Hormone Reset Diet, and Younger. Her latest book is called Women, Food, and Hormones.

3 Mistakes People Make When Trying To Heal Autoimmune Disease
1:02:08

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and Pendulum.

 

Autoimmune disease is, by far, the most widespread chronic health condition today, with a prevalence greater than heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined. It is staggering! Sadly, however, conventional medicine is making numerous mistakes when it comes to treating patients with autoimmune disease by attempting to manage symptoms rather than resolve the root cause and heal the body.

 

In this episode of my Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about what’s really behind the rates of climbing autoimmune disease. We discuss environmental and dietary changes, reduction in quality of food, and much more—and then what we can do to heal.

 

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.

How To Choose Quality Meat
1:02:30

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.

 

There’s no doubt that factory farming should be illegal, but that is a far cry from stating that all meat is bad. Grass-fed beef is extremely different from conventionally raised beef. In other words, the way your meat is raised matters.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Chris Kresser, Robb Wolf, Diana Rodgers, and Nicolette Niman about the myths and stigmas surrounding red-meat consumption, how to choose sustainably raised meat, and much more.

 

Chris Kresser M.S., L.Ac., is the codirector of the California Center for Functional Medicine, founder of the Kresser Institute, creator of ChrisKresser.com, and the New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Cure and Unconventional Medicine. He is one of the most respected clinicians and educators in the fields of Functional Medicine and ancestral health and has trained over 1,500 clinicians and health coaches in his unique approach. 

 

Robb Wolf, a former research biochemist, is the two-time New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Paleo Solution and Wired to Eat. Robb is the cofounder of The Healthy Rebellion, a social movement with the goal of liberating 1 million people from the sick-care system. Robb is the executive producer of the film Sacred Cow

 

Diana Rodgers, RD, is a “real food” nutritionist living on a working organic farm near Boston, Massachusetts. She’s an author, runs a clinical nutrition practice, hosts the Sustainable Dish podcast, and is an advisory board member of Animal Welfare Approved and Savory Institute. Her new book, Sacred Cow: The Case For Better Meat, and the film she directed and produced, also called Sacred Cow, are available.

 

Nicolette Hahn Niman is a writer, attorney, and livestock rancher. She has authored the books Defending Beef and Righteous Porkchop, as well as numerous essays for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times. Previously, she was Senior Attorney for the environmental organization Waterkeeper, where she focused on agriculture and food production; before that, she was an environmental lawyer for the National Wildlife Federation. Today, she lives in Northern California with her two sons and her husband, Bill Niman, founder of the natural-meat companies Niman Ranch and BN Ranch.

The Best Diet For Your Brain with Max Lugavere
1:17:24

This episode is brought to you by Eight Sleep, Rupa Health, and InsideTracker.


We often think of eating well in terms of managing our weight or heart health, but what about supporting the brain? There are so many foods we can eat to support better cognition, reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases, and feel sharper, smarter, and happier every day. Along those same lines, many of the processed foods in our Standard American Diet are sabotaging our brain health with loads of excess sugar and other sneaky ingredients. I’m excited to sit down with Max Lugavere to explore what it looks like to eat a diet that specifically benefits the brain. If you’re thinking you don’t need that focus in your personal diet, think again: these habits and foods are benefiting your entire body, too.


Max Lugavere is a health and science journalist and the author of the New York Times best-seller 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 best-seller, is called The Genius Life: Heal Your Mind, Strengthen Your Body, and Become Extraordinary. Max is the host of a #1 iTunes health and wellness podcast, called The Genius Life. His new cookbook, Genius Kitchen, just hit shelves yesterday.

Looking younger is not just about what creams you slather on your face; it’s actually an inside job. Treating your body well on the inside has numerous health benefits, including the quality and appearance of your skin.

In this episode of my Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about what we can do to support the body—and the skin. We discuss why essential fatty acids, organ meats, and hot and cold therapies are all important, and so much more.

How Fasting Works To Increase Longevity And Prevent Disease
1:07:49

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens, ButcherBox, and Rupa Health.

 

Fasting has numerous proven benefits to optimize health. It can help reduce inflammation, brain fog, and insulin resistance. It can also increase energy and bone density, activate autophagy—the process of cleaning out damaged cells—and reduce the signs of aging. The food we eat has an amazing ability to heal, but the timing of when we eat or abstain from eating can also have profound impacts on our health. 

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Valter Longo, Dave Asprey, and Dr. Jason Fung about the mechanisms behind fasting, why most of us can benefit from fasting, and how fasting can be a useful tool in cancer treatment.

 

Dr. Valter Longo is an internationally recognized leader in the field of aging studies and related diseases. Valter is the author of an extraordinary book, The Longevity Diet. The culmination of 25 years of research on aging, nutrition, and disease across the globe, it provides an easy-to-understand, accessible, and implementable road map to living well longer through improved nutrition.

 

Dave Asprey is the creator of the Bulletproof Diet and innovator of Bulletproof Coffee. Over the last two decades Dave, the “Father of Biohacking,” has worked with world-renowned doctors, researchers, scientists, and global mavericks to uncover the latest, most innovative methods, techniques, and products for enhancing mental and physical performance.

 

Dr. Jason Fung is a physician, author, and researcher. His groundbreaking, science-based books about diabetes and obesity—The Diabetes Code, The Obesity Code, and The Complete Guide to Fasting—have sold over one million copies and challenged the conventional wisdom that diabetics should be treated with insulin. His latest book is The Cancer Code: A Revolutionary New Understanding of a Medical Mystery.

Surprise Hacks To Balance Your Blood Sugar with Jessie Inchauspé
1:07:20

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, BiOptimizers, and Athletic Greens.


Food should be a tool for helping us feel our best. But, most people don’t realize what kind of impact their favorite foods are having on their blood sugar, and subsequently their entire body. Feeling hungry even when you just ate, craving sweets, and dealing with acne, hormonal imbalances, and signs of aging like wrinkles are just a few of the many symptoms of blood sugar swings. When these continue to go unchecked more severe dysfunctions can occur. On today’s episode, I talk to Jessie Inchauspé, also known as the “Glucose Goddess,” all about her tried-and-true hacks for balancing blood sugar and increasing insulin sensitivity.


Jessie 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.

Why You Might Be Struggling To Lose Weight
58:24

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Paleovalley.


Contrary to popular belief, holding on to weight isn’t just about a lack of willpower or not exercising enough; even genetics plays just a minor role. There are numerous other factors that influence our weight, including things like our gut microbiome, toxins, mitochondrial function, hormones, and even our social networks. But by applying the principles of Functional Medicine, we can peel back the layers to determine where the focus needs to be for each individual to support and balance their body and help them achieve a healthy weight.


In this episode of my Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about the eight reasons we can’t lose weight and how to overcome roadblocks in weight loss.


Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry.

Improve Your Relationships For Better Health
1:00:10

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and InsideTracker.

 

Community is medicine, just like food or sleep. Without community, we can become isolated, which has been found to be connected with inflammation and can even negatively impact immune response. Moreover, whom you choose to be in community with also matters. Your immediate social circle—the four-to-five people you surround yourself with the most—has the greatest influence on your health. In today’s episode, I talk with Radha Agrawal, Dan Buettner, and Dr. Vivek Murthy about why community matters, what we have learned from cultures that prioritize community in their population, and how to take care of our needs first before giving to others.


Radha Agrawal is the Co-founder, CEO, and Chief Community Architect of Daybreaker, the early morning dance and wellness move-ment. Daybreaker currently holds events in 25 cities and more than a dozen college campuses around the world and has a community of almost half a million people. She is also the author of the book, Belong: Find Your People, Create Community, and Live a More Connected Life

 

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 hotspots—where people live the longest, healthiest lives.

 

Dr. Vivek H. Murthy served as the 19th Surgeon General of the United States from December 15, 2014 to April 21, 2017 and was confirmed by the United States Senate on March 23, 2021 as the 21st Surgeon General of the United States. In 2017, Dr. Murthy focused his attention on chronic stress and loneliness as prevalent problems that have profound implications for health, productivity, and happiness. He is the author of, Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Sometimes Lonely World.

How To Upgrade Your Immune System To Fight Viruses And Prevent Disease with Dr. Roger Seheult
1:02:08

This episode is brought to you by Thrive Market, Rupa Health, and Eight Sleep.


For the past two years, we’ve been flooded with Covid-related information. We’ve heard conflicting recommendations on everything from how to prevent the spread, reduce the severity, and recover, but many people are still unsure of which actions make the most impact. To me, a key underlying issue of the pandemic is that we aren’t addressing the health of the host. With the virus actively looking for a new home, it’s within our power to make our bodies the least appealing place for it to settle down. 


Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I talk to Dr. Roger Seheult about giving our bodies the best inputs to stay resilient against Covid and other infectious diseases. Dr. Roger Seheult is currently an Associate Clinical Professor at the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine, and an Assistant Clinical Professor at the School of Medicine and Allied Health at Loma Linda University. Dr. Seheult is quadruple board-certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Diseases, Critical Care Medicine, and Sleep Medicine through the American Board of Internal Medicine. He is also the co-founder of MedCram, an online medical education company that helps healthcare professionals and laypeople understand medical topics clearly.

The 6 Foods You Should Never Eat
1:02:24

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Vuori.


Eating ultra-processed foods—made primarily from wheat, corn, and soy—increases your death rate by 75 percent. How’s that for a sobering statistic! Unfortunately, American grocery-store shelves are monopolized by foods that contain ingredients that you should never eat, like partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, and more. These foods have been scientifically proven to cause disease and death, so why do we still keep reaching for them?


In this episode of my Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host Dhru Purohit about foods that you should never eat again, foods to limit, and the food industry’s role in why these foods are so pervasive in our supermarkets.


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.

How The Weedkiller Glyphosate Affects Your Body And How To Avoid It
56:24

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens, Cozy Earth, and Eight Sleep.

 

Glyphosate is a popular pesticide that has a big downside—it’s destroying our health. It damages our good gut bacteria and may lead to leaky gut. Glyphosate also depletes glutathione, our master antioxidant and a cornerstone of our biology, and it dramatically impacts our sulfur, methylation, and detoxification pathways that have many essential roles for our health. And not only is glyphosate harming human health and the health of our future generations, it’s also destroying our ecosystems.


In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Ken Cook, and Dr. Zach Bush about why it’s important to be aware of the effects of glyphosate and make choices that reduce our exposure as much as possible.


Stephanie Seneff is a Senior Research Scientist at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She has a bachelor's degree from MIT in Biology with a minor in Food and Nutrition Science, and a master’s degree, an engineer’s degree, and a PhD degree, all from MIT, in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Her recent interests have focused on the role of toxic chemicals and micronutrient deficiencies in health and disease, with a special emphasis on the pervasive herbicide, glyphosate, and the mineral, sulfur. She is the author of Toxic Legacy: How the Weedkiller Glyphosate Is Destroying Our Health and the Environment.

 

Ken Cook is president and co-founder of the Environmental Working Group, a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. He is widely recognized as one of the environmental community’s most prominent and influential critics of industrial agriculture and the nation’s broken approach to protecting families and children from toxic substances.

 

Dr. Zach Bush is a physician specializing in internal medicine, endocrinology, and hospice care. He is an internationally recognized educator and thought leader on the microbiome as it relates to health, disease, and food systems. Dr. Bush founded Seraphic Group and the non-profit Farmer’s Footprint to develop root-cause solutions for human and ecological health. His passion for education reaches across many disciplines, including topics such as the role of soil and water ecosystems in human genomics, immunity, and gut-brain health.

The Truth Behind Statins: Helpful or Harmful? with Dr. Aseem Malhotra
1:18:12

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and Mitopure.


Heart disease is still the number one killer in the world, yet most people don’t actually understand what markers put them most at risk. It’s so much more than just LDL cholesterol. Statins have become the panacea for anyone with LDL that’s just a little off, yet most people (and even many doctors) aren’t fully informed of the risks versus the benefits of this drug, let alone aware of other treatment options for heart disease. Today, I talk to Dr. Aseem Malhotra about the real data on statins, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, and so much more. 


Dr. Aseem Malhotra is an NHS-trained consultant cardiologist and visiting Professor of Evidence-Based Medicine at the Bahiana School of Medicine and Public Health in Salvador, Brazil. He is a founding member of Action on Sugar. In 2015, he became the youngest member to be appointed to the board of trustees of UK health charity, The King's Fund. He is a pioneer of the lifestyle medicine movement in the UK and in 2018 was ranked by software company Onalytica as the number one doctor in the world influencing obesity thinking. Dr. Malhotra's first book The Pioppi Diet, co-authored with Donal O'Neill, was an international bestseller and his next book, The 21-Day Immunity Plan, was also a Sunday Times top 10 bestseller. His new book is A Statin-Free Life.

How To Improve Your Metabolic Health
1:42:27

This episode is brought to you by Eight Sleep, Athletic Greens, and BiOptimizers.

 

Only about 12 percent of Americans are considered “metabolically healthy.” That means the other 88 percent of us aren’t meeting basic medical guidelines for things like blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol, and other markers of metabolic health. In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Cindy Geyer, Dr. Ben Bikman, Mark Sisson, and Dr. Elizabeth Boham about how to identify if you are metabolically unhealthy, how to optimize your metabolic flexibility, and much more.

 

Dr. Cindy Geyer received her Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Medicine degrees, with honors, from the Ohio State University. She completed residency in internal medicine at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY, and is triple board certified in internal medicine, integrative medicine, and lifestyle medicine. She joined The Ultrawellness Center in 2021 after practicing and serving as the medical director at Canyon Ranch for 23 years. 

 

Dr. Ben Bikman is a renowned metabolic research scientist and a popular speaker on human metabolism and nutrition. Backed by years of research, Dr. Bikman’s mission is to help the world appreciate the prevalence and relevance of insulin resistance. He is the author of the book Why We Get Sick: The Hidden Epidemic at the Root of Most Chronic Disease—and How to Fight It, which offers a thought-provoking yet real solution to insulin resistance and reversing prediabetes, improving brain function, shedding fat, and preventing diabetes. 

 

Mark Sisson is the founder of the popular daily health blog Mark’s Daily Apple, godfather to the Primal food and lifestyle movement, and the New York Times bestselling author of The Keto Reset Diet: Reboot Your Metabolism in 21 Days and Burn Fat Forever. His latest book is Keto for Life: Reset Your Biological Clock in 21 Days and Optimize Your Diet for Longevity, where he discusses how he combines the keto diet with a Primal lifestyle for optimal health and longevity. Mark is the author of numerous other books as well, including The Primal Blueprint.


Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness.

Are Some Sugars And Sweeteners Better Than Others?
58:35

This episode is brought to you by Eight Sleep and Athletic Greens.

 

Sugar is the number-one thing we can all use less of in our lives—in fact, just thinking about it releases insulin! Sugar turns on many mechanisms of disease and death, including inflammation. It fuels cancer and heart disease, it drives hormonal changes, it slows metabolism, and it literally shuts down the body’s ability to burn fat. On top of all that, sugar is highly addictive: the more we eat, the more we want. 


In this episode of my Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host Dhru Purohit about why sugar is so harmful to our health, why the type of sugar really doesn’t matter, and much more. 


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.

How To Get To The Root Cause Of All Chronic Disease
1:52:04

This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox, Athletic Greens, and Rupa Health.

 

Eliminating starch and sugar could be the most powerful food choice you make to improve your health and increase your longevity. Why? Because it can reduce or eliminate insulin resistance, which is behind so many chronic diseases. Add to that reducing stress and sleeping better, and you're on the way to a healthier lifestyle that benefits both your body and your mind.

 

In five clips from my Masterclass series, Dhru Purohit and I discuss the basics of Functional Medicine, including diet, inflammation, stress, and sleep, and why it's important to start reducing chronic disease right now to live a longer, healthier, vitality-filled life.

 

Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry.

Can We Live Healthy Forever? The Frontiers Of Longevity Science with Tony Robbins and Peter Diamandis
1:44:42

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Eight Sleep, and Cozy Earth.


Just five years ago, the concept of age reversal was considered crazy. Now, it’s the hottest topic in research, as we continuously discover exciting interventions that can actually reverse our biological age. I’ve experienced these amazing advances firsthand—chronologically I’m 62, but my biological, or “inner” age, is only 39. 


And I’m not the only one who’s become fascinated by the science of age reversal and reaped the benefits. Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I talk to Tony Robbins and Peter Diamandis about their research and personal journeys in aging backwards using a range of simple, accessible interventions and the latest health-tech. 


Tony Robbins is an entrepreneur, #1 New York Times bestselling author, and philanthropist honored by Accenture as one of the top 50 business intellectuals in the world. Through his philanthropy and partnership with Feeding America, he has provided more than 800 million meals and is on track to provide 1 billion meals by 2025.


Peter Diamandis is the founder and executive chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation, which leads the world in designing and operating large-scale incentive competitions. He was recently named by Fortune as one of the “World’s 50 Greatest Leaders.” He is also the executive founder of Singularity University, a graduate-level Silicon Valley institution that counsels the world's leaders on exponentially growing technologies

How To Lose Belly Fat
48:41

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Paleovalley.

 

Belly fat, or visceral fat around the organs, is the number-one cause of aging. It drives inflammation, increases the risk of blood clots, changes your hormones and brain chemistry, and more. It’s a recipe for disaster in the body. Not only does belly fat surround the organs, but it’s an organ of its own that produces dangerous inflammatory cytokines that may lead to a cytokine storm. In short, we want to do everything we can to avoid belly fat.

 

In this episode of my Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host Dhru Purohit about belly fat, or visceral adipose tissue. We discuss how this form of fat is the most dangerous and why it’s so important to take steps to reduce it.


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.

How To Heal Your Body With Food
1:21:37

This episode is brought to you by Eight Sleep, Athletic Greens, and BiOptimizers.


You can start to heal your body right now simply with the food you put in your mouth—it's really that simple. Food has the power to heal the body from many ailments and can even help prevent cancer. There are many powerful medicinal compounds in foods: curcumin, catechins, lycopene, resveratrol, and quercetin, just to name a few. That’s why I call the grocery store the drug store; we can literally eat our medicine at every meal.


In this compilation episode, I am joined by Dr. William Li to discuss how to use food as medicine, the importance of nitric oxide for our blood vessels, the role of the microbiome, and why it's necessary to support the immune system.


William Li, MD, is a world-renowned physician, scientist, speaker, and author of Eat to Beat Disease: The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself. He is best known for leading the Angiogenesis Foundation. His groundbreaking work has impacted more than 70 diseases including cancer, diabetes, blindness, heart disease, and obesity. His TED Talk, “Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?” has garnered more than 11 million views. An author of over 100 scientific publications in leading journals such as Science, the New England Journal of Medicine, The Lancet, and more, Dr. Li has served on the faculties of Harvard, Tufts, and Dartmouth Medical School.

The Untold Story Of Uric Acid: Solving The Puzzle Of Obesity, Diabetes And Chronic Disease with Dr. David Perlmutter
1:11:21

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Thrive Market, and Cozy Earth.


Uric acid is a central player in metabolic mayhem. Despite its long association with gout and kidney stones, it’s involved in so much more—especially our metabolic disease epidemic. There are three things that raise our levels of uric acid: purines, alcohol, and fructose. The latter is the biggest challenge, due to its overwhelming presence in our Standard American Diet. That doesn’t mean all fruit is bad or even that all alcohol and purine-rich foods have the same effect. Like all parts of health and nutrition, there are nuances we need to consider to create optimal health.


That’s why I’m so excited to take a deep dive into the topic of uric acid with my friend and colleague Dr. David Perlmutter. Dr.Perlmutter is a Board-Certified Neurologist and five-time New York Times bestselling author. He serves on the Board of Directors and is a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He is the author of Grain Brain among others, and his new book, Drop Acid was just released. Dr. Perlmutter received his M.D. degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine where he was awarded the Leonard G. Rowntree Research Award. He serves as a member of the Editorial Board for the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease and has published extensively in peer-reviewed scientific journals including Archives of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and The Journal of Applied Nutrition.

Daily Steps To Boost Energy & Never Be Tired Again
57:02

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Mitopure.

 

Between 20 and 30 percent of all doctor visits are initiated due to lack of energy, or chronic fatigue. It is a common problem that plagues so many of us. Often we don’t realize that the last thing we want to do—exercise—could be an easy solution to increasing our energy levels. When we create stress in the body from exercise or other stressors, also called hormesis, we can actually build back stronger as the body heals and repairs.

 

In this episode of my new Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about all the things we can do to improve our energy levels. We also talk about how caffeine and sugar in your diet impact energy, as well as answer questions from our community about the value of napping, if MCT oil increases energy, and why fruit juice is not a great choice.


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.

Use Your Mind To Heal Your Body
52:11

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and Athletic Greens.

 

Our thoughts have a profound physiological effect on the body and can either help or hinder the healing process. Even just thinking about a negative experience can set off a cascade of physiological events in the body just as if it’s happening right now—the mind-body connection is truly that powerful.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Joe Dispenza, Emily Fletcher, and Dr. Leonard Calabrese about why our thoughts influence our physiology and what we can do to improve our health, even when we feel we are stuck. Once we are aware of our thoughts and learn to retrain our brains, using such techniques as meditation to break the conditioning process, we see substantial changes in health. 

 

Dr. Joe Dispenza’s passion can be found at the intersection of the latest findings from the fields of neuroscience, epigenetics, and quantum physics, where he explores the science behind spontaneous remissions. He uses that knowledge to teach people how to heal their bodies of health conditions, make significant changes in their lives, and evolve their consciousness. Since 2010, he has partnered with scientists and universities to perform extensive research on the effects that meditation has on the brain and body. He and his team have also studied gene expression, protein regulation, immune response, neurotransmitter changes, telomere length, and variations in bioactive cellular metabolic particles in novice and advanced meditators.

 

Emily Fletcher is the founder of Ziva, the creator of the Ziva Technique, and regarded as a leading expert in meditation for high performers. She is also the author of Stress Less, Accomplish More: Meditation for Extraordinary Performance.

 

Dr. Leonard Calabrese is a professor of medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University and vice chair of the Department of Rheumatic and Immunologic Diseases. He is the director of the RJ Fasenmyer Center for Clinical Immunology at the Cleveland Clinic and holds joint appointments in the Department of Infectious Diseases and the Wellness Institute. He has received numerous awards and honors for his contributions to the advancements of immunology and wellness.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, BiOptimizers, and Vuori.


Food and racism are heavily tied, and the history of fast food franchises in America is one of many examples. In order to continue the fight for civil rights and name ongoing social and racial disparities, it’s important to learn how we got here. I’m excited to dig into all this with Marcia Chatelain. 


Marcia Chatelain is a Professor of History and African American Studies at Georgetown University. The author of South Side Girls: Growing up in the Great Migration, she teaches about women’s and girls’ history, as well as black capitalism. Her latest book, Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America examines the intricate relationship among African American politicians, civil rights organizations, communities, and the fast food industry. In 2021, Marcia received the Pulitzer Prize in History, the Hagley Prize in Business History, and the Organization of American Historians Lawrence W. Levine Award for Franchise. Marcia has received awards and honors from the Ford Foundation, the American Association of University Women, and the German Marshall Fund of the United States. In 2016, the Chronicle of Higher Education named her a Top Influencer in academia in recognition of her social media campaign #FergusonSyllabus, which implored educators to facilitate discussions about the crisis in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014.

How To Reduce Your Risk Of Cancer
34:06

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and Eight Sleep.

 

An astonishing seventy percent of cancer is diet-related. When it comes to treating cancer, conventional medicine is good at cutting it, burning it, and poisoning it, but many doctors fail to treat the root cause. Functional Medicine empowers patients and practitioners to optimize health by addressing the root causes of disease.

 

In this episode of my new Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about the cancer epidemic, including the biggest cancer risks.

The Truth About Sugar Addiction And How It Affects Your Health
57:49

This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens, Paleovalley, and Rupa Health.

 

Sugar lights up the addiction center in our brains, just like heroin and cocaine. Yet many of us consume more sugar than we are aware of because it’s lurking in so many foods that we would never expect. The average person consumes 152 pounds of it per year! Sugar is not just responsible for an increased waistline but also impacts our metabolic health, immune systems, mental health, and more.

 

In today’s episode, I talk with Keegan Allen and Tom Hopper, Dr. Shebani Sethi Dalai, and Dr. Casey Means about why sugar addiction is so detrimental to our health and what we can do about it.

 

Keegan Allen is an American actor, musician, photographer, and author. He’s known for his main role as Toby Cavanaugh on the Freeform series Pretty Little Liars. Allen’s passion in his younger years tended towards photography, cinematography, and other roles behind the camera.

 

Tom Hopper is an English actor. He has appeared as Sir Percival in Merlin, Billy Bones in Black Sails, Dickon Tarly in Game of Thrones, and Luther Hargreeves in Netflix’s new show The Umbrella Academy.

 

Dr. Shebani Sethi Dalai is a double board-certified physician in Obesity Medicine and Psychiatry. She is the Founding Director of Stanford University’s Metabolic Psychiatry program and Silicon Valley Metabolic Psychiatry, a new center in the San Francisco Bay Area focused on optimizing brain health by integrating low carb nutrition, comprehensive psychiatric care, and treatment of obesity with associated metabolic disease.

 

Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder of metabolic health company Levels, an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a Guest Lecturer at Stanford University. Dr. Means’ perspective has been recently featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Men's Health, Forbes, Business Insider, Techcrunch, Entrepreneur Magazine, Metabolism, Endocrine Today, and more.

We feel it in our energy level, it’s hard to focus, and it can even contribute to chronic illness.

The Power Of Epigenetics To Transform Your Healthspan And Lifespan with Dr. Jeffrey Bland
1:00:07

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Eight Sleep, and ButcherBox.


You might have heard the word “epigenetics” and wondered what the heck it means. Well to sum it up shorthand, epigenetics is how everything you’re exposed to throughout your life—your environment, your social relationships, your diet, etc.—impacts how your genes are expressed. Think of it like this: genes are our hardware and epigenetics are like software. Our software is something that can be changed and upgraded, it doesn’t have to be static. If you want to learn more about understanding, demystifying, and harnessing epigenetics, then this is the podcast episode for you. 


Today’s guest on The Doctor’s Farmacy is my good friend and mentor, Dr. Jeffrey Bland. We talk all about epigenetics and unpack what can be a complicated topic in terms you can actually understand. Dr. Bland’s career in health spans more than 40 years. A lifelong educator, Jeff has traveled the world many times over in his role as the “father of Functional Medicine.” In 1991, he and his wife, Susan, founded The Institute for Functional Medicine. In 2012, Jeff founded another educational nonprofit called the Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute. He is the author of The Disease Delusion: Conquering the Causes of Chronic Illness for a Healthier, Longer, and Happier Life, as well as countless additional books and research papers.

What Would Happen If You Stopped Eating Bread For 30 Days?
40:12

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Mitopure.

 

The average American consumes 133 pounds of flour per year. Let that sink in. What we may not realize is that every time we eat white flour, we are harming ourselves. The starch in common wheat, typically known as modern dwarf wheat, raises your blood sugar more than table sugar! Eating a diet high in carbohydrates may affect not just your waistline, but also your brain function, energy, immune system, healthspan, and more.


In this episode of my new Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about how and why to consider giving up bread for 30 days. We discuss why our modern wheat is not a good food choice on a daily basis, how to pause on eating bread for a month or more, why certain kinds of bread may be a better choice than others, questions from our community, and so much more.


Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry.

1:07:00

5 Easy Ways To Improve Your Health Today
1:56:00

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and InsideTracker.


Wellness is more than just eating right and exercising; it’s also much more than just feeling “okay.” Feeling well means feeling whole, balanced, vibrant, and alive. And there are many moving pieces that we can tap into to feel empowered in our own wellness journey. Functional Medicine looks at the body with a systems-based approach, understanding how all our different parts work together and looking at a symptom as a sign of dysfunction that we need to get to the root cause of, not just tame. 


I sat down with Dr. Elizabeth Boham to discuss what it means to get to the root cause of disease and how the principles we practice do exactly that. We talk about the many different parts of healing the whole body, like enhancing detoxification pathways, correcting nutrient deficiencies, supporting the microbiome, and so much more.


Dr. Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine as part of my team at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing, she has helped thousands of people achieve their wellness goals. She is part of the faculty of the Institute for Functional Medicine and has been featured on the Dr. Oz show and in a variety of publications and media including Huffington Post, The Chalkboard Magazine, and Experience Life. Her DVD Breast Wellness: Tools to Prevent and Heal from Breast Cancer explores the Functional Medicine approach to keeping your breasts and whole body well, a topic she is passionate about as a breast cancer survivor.

1:10:25

This episode is brought to you by Eight Sleep, Athletic Greens, and Mitopure.


I recently spent time in Sardinia, Italy, which is known for having one of the world’s longest-lived populations. It simply blew me away. After getting to know the people, their day-to-day activities, their diets, and their sense of community I can totally see why they live such long and happy lives. So, how can we embrace these same aspects of Sardinian life in our own busy Western world? Blue Zones pioneer Dan Buettner joins me on this episode to talk about that and so much more. 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 hotspots—where people live the longest, healthiest lives.


Dan now works in partnership with municipal governments, large employers, and health insurance companies to implement Blue Zones Projects in communities, workplaces, and universities. Blue Zones Projects are well-being initiatives that apply lessons from the Blue Zones to entire communities by focusing on changes to the local environment, public policy, and social networks. The program has dramatically improved the health of more than 5 million Americans to date. His new book, The Blue Zones Challenge: A 4-Week Plan for a Longer Better Life is a four-week guide and year-long sustainability program to jump-start your longevity journey.

This episode is sponsored by Thrive Market, Athletic Greens, and Rupa Health.


The school of thought around cancer used to be focused only on the genetic component.

Reversing Chronic Disease And Aging By Fixing Insulin Resistance with Dr. Ben Bikman
1:44:32

This episode is sponsored by Rupa Health, BiOptimizers, and HigherDOSE


We’re up against an epidemic of chronic metabolic diseases. One thing they all have in common is a component of insulin dysregulation. Take that into account with the fact that 90% of people who have insulin resistance are going to the doctor and remaining undiagnosed. Why then, are we testing everything but insulin? Today, I take a deep dive into the topic of insulin resistance and metabolic health with Dr. Ben Bikman. 

 

Dr. Bikman is a renowned metabolic research scientist and a popular speaker on human metabolism and nutrition. Backed by years of research, Dr. Bikman’s mission is to help the world appreciate the prevalence and relevance of insulin resistance. He is the author of the book, Why We Get Sick, which offers a thought-provoking yet real solution to insulin resistance and reversing pre-diabetes, improving brain function, shedding fat, and preventing diabetes. Dr. Bikman has a Doctor of Philosophy in Bioenergetics from East Carolina University, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in metabolic disorders with the Duke-National University of Singapore Medical School.

Why You Should Stop Eating Most Dairy
45:36

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Paleovalley.


We’ve been told over and over again that dairy is a great source of calcium; that milk makes healthy bones and we should drink it daily. I’m here to tell you that this is not true. Cow’s milk from conventionally raised cattle contains dozens of reproductive hormones, allergenic proteins, antibiotics, chemicals, inflammatory compounds, and growth factors, some of which are known to promote cancer. While humans are the only species that continue to drink milk after weaning, we have no biological requirement for this food. Moreover, the milk we drink today is not what our grandparents drank.


In this episode of my new Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about why we should avoid almost all dairy. We also discuss some of the popular myths about dairy, the types of dairy that are okay to eat, and much more.


Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry. His podcast, 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.

How To Have Successful Relationships with Esther Perel

Modern love comes with an unprecedented list of expectations. Relationships can of course be a source of amazing connection and joy, but they can also be really hard. We want our partner to be our best friend, lover, confidant, coworker, therapist, and so much more. We want from one person what an entire village used to provide. To take it a step further, we want a soul mate; we want in another human what we used to look for in the realm of the divine. We want that person to help us become the best version of ourselves.

Reflections On Living An Authentic Life with Matthew McConaughey
54:14

I was lucky enough to learn at a young age that we can write our own stories. We can become the authors of our own lives instead of the victims—living authentically is a cornerstone of that process. Throughout life we’re posed with obstacles, successes, and everything in between. My guest on today’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy, the one and only Matthew McConaughey, shares how challenging events (redlights) can provide us with the opportunity for growth and success (greenlights), which is the focus of his new book Greenlights.


Academy Award–winning actor Matthew McConaughey is a husband, father of three children, and a loyal son and brother. He considers himself a storyteller by occupation, believes it’s okay to have a beer on the way to the temple, feels better with a day’s sweat on him, and is an aspiring orchestral conductor. In 2009, Matthew and his wife, Camila, founded the just keep livin Foundation, which helps at-risk high school students make healthier mind, body, and spirit choices. In 2019, McConaughey became a professor of practice at the University of Texas at Austin, as well as Minister of Culture/M.O.C. for the University of Texas and the City of Austin. McConaughey is also brand ambassador for Lincoln Motor Company, an owner of the Major League Soccer Club Austin FC, and co-creator of his favorite bourbon on the planet, Wild Turkey Longbranch.


Here are more of the details from our interview: 


  • What Matthew found when he looked back on the journals he kept over 30 years (4:49) 
  • The science of satisfaction (8:01) 
  • Being an author vs. victim of your life (10:55)       
  • Reframing selfishness (13:05)               
  • Matthew’s recurring dream and what he did to follow it (17:39)        
  • The transformative wrestling match that Matthew inadvertently found himself participating in (23:55)                   
  • Prioritizing what matters most to you (36:30)  
  • How relinquishing need can bring in more (42:32)           
  • The power of journaling and writing down your thoughts (43:28)

How To Use The Power Of Your Mind For Spontaneous Healing with Dr. Joe Dispenza
1:10:55

This episode is sponsored by Rupa Health and ButcherBox.


I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of human potential and the mind-body connection. Time and time again, I’ve seen that mindset is a defining factor in how successful my patients are on their healing journey. The mind-body connection is a powerful one, so much so that there are numerous reports of spontaneous remission of chronic pain and diseases when people change their headspace. Digging into our subconscious thoughts and beliefs and redefining how we see our future can have real, long-lasting impacts on our physical health. 


I was so excited to sit down with Dr. Joe Dispenza to talk about his work in mind-body medicine, helping people overcome their biggest obstacles and form new, healthy, limitless lives. Dr. Joe’s passion can be found at the intersection of the latest findings from the fields of neuroscience, epigenetics, and quantum physics to explore the science behind spontaneous remissions. He uses that knowledge to teach people how to heal their bodies of health conditions, make significant changes in their lives, and evolve their consciousness.

5 Steps To Prevent And Treat Autoimmune Disease Today
2:09:12

This episode is sponsored by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.


Millions of individuals worldwide are affected by autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, type-1 diabetes, hypothyroidism, psoriasis, and many others. Simply put, autoimmune diseases 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. 


In this compilation episode, I talk to Dr. Cynthia Li, Dr. George Papanicolaou, Dr. Todd LePine, Dr. Steven Phillips, and Dana Parish about out-of-the-box ways to treat autoimmune disease. We also discuss the importance of healing your gut and optimizing your diet, treating hidden infections, and more.


Dr. Cynthia Li received her medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. She currently has a private practice in Berkeley, CA and is the author of Brave New Medicine: A Doctor’s Unconventional Path to Healing Her Autoimmune Illness.


Dr. George Papanicolaou is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and is Board Certified in Family Medicine from Abington Memorial Hospital. In 2015, he established Cornerstone Personal Health—a practice dedicated entirely to Functional Medicine. He joined The UltraWellness Center in 2017.


Dr. Todd LePine graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, specializing in Integrative Functional Medicine. Prior to joining The UltraWellness Center, he worked as a physician at Canyon Ranch in Lenox, MA, for 10 years. Dr. LePine’s focus at The UltraWellness Center is to help his patients achieve optimal health and vitality by restoring the natural balance to both the mind and the body. 


Dr. Steven Phillips is a renowned Yale-trained physician, international lecturer, and media go-to expert. Well-published in the medical literature, he has treated over 20,000 patients with complex, chronic illness from nearly 20 countries. Dr. Phillips experienced firsthand the nightmare of an undiagnosed, serious infection after nearly dying from his own mystery illness. He figured out how to save his own life when 25 doctors could not.


Dana Parish developed Lyme-induced heart failure as a result of being improperly diagnosed by some of the “top” doctors in the country—and had her life saved by Dr. Steven Phillips. A chart-topping Sony/ATV singer/songwriter who has written songs for artists like Celine Dion and Idina Menzel, she has become a major voice in the world of chronic illness. Her popular column on Huffington Post has been read by more than one million people globally.

The Emerging Science Of Longevity with Peter Diamandis
1:16:07

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, Athletic Greens, and Rupa Health.


What if I told you we’ll reach a point in time where scientific breakthroughs will extend our lives by more than a year, for every year we are alive? This is called longevity escape velocity, and some experts think it’s only 12 to 15 years away. Of course, getting to that point is multidimensional. It means addressing health from all angles, with personal lifestyle choices, technology, and more. 


On today’s episode, I’m excited to talk to Peter Diamandis about the future of longevity interventions and why we won’t always have the same idea of aging that we do today. Peter Diamandis is the founder and executive chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation, which leads the world in designing and operating large-scale incentive competitions. He was recently named by Fortune as one of the “World’s 50 Greatest Leaders.” He is also the executive founder of Singularity University, a graduate-level Silicon Valley institution that counsels the world's leaders on exponentially growing technologies.

If You Want to Live Longer, Fix These 8 Things Today
52:51

This episode is sponsored by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.


We are in an epidemic of chronic illness. Despite the advances in conventional medical care over the last decades, this system of medicine is governed by a persistent myth that if you know the name of your disease, you know what’s wrong with you. Once you have a label, you are put in the group of people who have the same label, and it is assumed you carry the attributes of this group. Unfortunately, this approach or method of thinking is outdated, increasingly useless, and often dangerous. Functional Medicine, on the other hand, looks at the body with a systems-based approach, understanding how all our different parts work together and looking at a symptom as a sign of dysfunction that we need to get to the root cause of, not just tame.


In this compilation episode, I take you through eight things you can do to reset your body and reduce chronic illness. I also talk about the risks of a fatty liver, how inflammation impacts the body, and the importance of good sleep.

3 Things Causing Inflammation In Your Body & How To Prevent It
1:08:59

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.

 

If you have a chronic illness, you’ve got inflammation. Inflammation is often hidden or silent, something that we can’t see or feel, but manifests itself as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, depression, and more. Typically, inflammation has been raging inside for a while before you even notice there’s anything wrong. The three biggest drivers of inflammation are all lifestyle factors—gut health, diet, and chronic stress.


In this episode of my new Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about inflammation, what’s causing it, and how to reduce it. We discuss the critical component of gut health and how 60-70% of our immune system is in our gut, as well as tests to identify inflammation in the body, foods to avoid, and the importance of restful sleep.

Simple Hacks To Boost Energy, Promote Weight Loss, And Reverse Aging
2:34:55

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Cozy Earth.


Most of us can relate to feeling tired, moody, or just overall depleted. It’s not a lack of willpower or motivation that leads to low-energy. It's because we’re up against energy thieves that are hiding everywhere from our immune system to the food we eat, and even our microbiome. 


In this compilation episode, I talk to Dave Asprey about using the principles of Functional Medicine and the biology of biohacking to boost energy, promote weight loss, and feel good at any age. We discuss the numerous benefits of fasting, such as reducing insulin, improving brain function, and supporting mitochondria (these are our tiny but powerful cellular energy factories)​​. Fasting doesn’t have to mean feeling stressed, tired, or even hungry—Dave tells us how to remove the fear and pain some people feel about fasting to make the process easier.


Dave Asprey is the founder and Chairman of Bulletproof 360, a high-performance coffee and food company, and creator of the widely-popular Bulletproof Coffee. He is a three-time New York Times bestselling author, host of the Webby award-winning podcast Bulletproof Radio, and has been featured on the Today show, Fox News, Nightline, CNN, and dozens more. Over the last two decades Dave, the “Father of Biohacking,” has worked with world-renowned doctors, researchers, scientists, and global mavericks to uncover the latest, most innovative methods, techniques, and products for enhancing mental and physical performance.

Creating Lasting Habits To Strengthen Immunity
33:10

This episode is brought to you by Paleovalley, Athletic Greens, and Tushy.


I don’t like to look at what I do as treating disease. I’d rather look at it as creating health. And we have a lot of power to do that ourselves, each and every day. This is something I especially like to remind people of as we continue through the pandemic—the right choices and habits can help us stay more resilient and healthy during what feels like an uncontrollable world health crisis. 


Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I talk to my good friend Ken Cook, as part of EWG’s CleanCon Conference. In this conversation, Ken interviews me about establishing better habits for human and planetary health.


Ken Cook is widely recognized as one of the environmental community’s most prominent and influential critics of industrial agriculture and the nation’s broken approach to protecting families and children from toxic substances. Under Cook’s leadership, EWG has pioneered the use of digital technologies to empower American families with easy-to-use, science-driven tools to help reduce their exposure to potentially harmful ingredients in food, drinking water, cosmetics, and other household products.

How To Hack Your Age To Live Longer
1:18:50

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and ButcherBox.

 

As the science of longevity has exploded in recent years, we have more access to innovative therapies, techniques, knowledge, and technology than ever before. Traditionally, we view aging as an inevitable consequence that happens to our bodies as we get older. We think that as we gain more years of life, it is a given that we begin to slow down, become less agile, lose our memories, and gain more chronic diseases. We define these things as “aging” when they’re actually signs of dis-ease that can be prevented and often even reversed. 


In this episode of my new MasterClass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about creating vibrant, optimal health, to feel younger at any age. We discuss the latest science on whole-body health and longevity and share simple, accessible tips that you can use right now to start feeling younger at any age.
