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 Wednesday morning. I hope you'll join me.

Why Eliminating Meat From Our Diet Isn’t The Solution To Climate Change | This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, Thrive Market, and BLUBloxHuman health is dependent on planetary health. A healthy planet coincides with healthy animals; when we look at the way public health and our climate have changed with the industrialization of agriculture, animals are a key focus. We often hear the argument that in order to solve climate change we need to stop eating meat. What these people aren’t realizing is that animal agriculture done right is actually part of the solution. That is a big stipulation because the methods used to raise meat can make or break our climate crisis and our health. I’m thrilled to sit down today with Anya Fernald to discuss the ins and outs of regenerative farming and animal practices. Anya Fernald is the co-founder and CEO of Belcampo. Belcampo operates 27,000 acres of organic farmland in California and processes its own livestock for sale in its own butcher shops and restaurants. Anya has two decades of leadership and entrepreneurship experience in high-quality, organic and premium foods. Given her expertise on meat and leadership within the meat industry, Anya has been profiled in The New Yorker and The New York Times, and has served as a regular judge on Iron Chef America on The Food Network since 2009. She has been recognized as one of Inc. Magazine’s 100 Female Founders, one of the 40 under 40 by Food & Wine, and was named a Nifty Fifty by The New York Times.This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, Thrive Market, and BLUBlox.Right now you can try BiOptimizers Magnesium Breakthrough for 10% off, just go to bioptimizers.com/hyman and use the code HYMAN10 at checkout.Thrive is offering all Doctor's Farmacy listeners an amazing deal.

Autism: Getting To The Root Cause With Functional Medicine | This episode is sponsored by Athletic Greens and BetterhelpRates of autism have skyrocketed over the years, from an estimated 1 child in 5,000 in the 1960s and 1970s to just 1 in 54 kids today. The diagnosis of autism can be shocking and difficult for parents and families which may leave them feeling isolated, alone, helpless, and hopeless, but it doesn’t have to be that way. While we don’t have all the answers, and more research is needed to identify and validate the causes and treatment of autism, there are new signs of hope. And there is no such thing as “autism.” Rather there are “autisms”—different patterns of biological dysfunction unique to each child that result in multiple insults to the brain that all manifest with symptoms we call autism. Like every condition or illness, the key is to dig into the layers and peel the onion to discover what is really happening. It is not usually one thing but a collection of insults, toxins, and deficiencies piled on susceptible genetics that leads to autism.In this episode, Dr. Hyman sits down with Dr. George Papaicolaou to discuss the Functional Medicine approach to treating children with autism. They also share specific patient stories that they have treated.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 4 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 practiced with a philosophy centered on personal relationships and treating the whole person, not just not the disease. He called that 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.

Our agriculture system is destructive— for the earth and for human health. The food produced by industrial agriculture leads to at least 11 million deaths a year and drives our obesity epidemic. We need to build a regenerative system—one that regenerates the earth and human health. Regenerative agriculture is more profitable for farmers, produces higher yields, and better-quality food. When we vote with our dollars and our forks by choosing regeneratively grown food, we send a message to Big Food that we want more sustainable farms. In this mini-episode, Dr. Hyman discusses how to eat like a regenetarian, the ninth principle in his new book, “The Pegan Diet: 21 Practical Principles for Reclaiming Your Health in a Nutritionally Confusing World” out February 23, 2021.

Heavy Metals And Health: The Untold Story | This episode is sponsored by Joovv and AquaTruWe live in an environment steeped in chemicals that our bodies were not designed to process. When it comes to toxins one plus one does not equal two. There is a compounded effect. Chronic toxicity can wreak havoc on our health and result in symptoms ranging from fatigue to sleep and skin issues. It can also be related to autoimmune issues, diabetes, hypertension, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, autism, and many other conditions. Unfortunately, conventional medicine rarely examines the role of toxic load when it comes to treating these conditions. In this episode, Dr. Hyman sits down with Dr. Elizabeth Boham to discuss the Functional Medicine approach to assessing a patient's toxic load and supporting the body to detoxify and reduce high levels of heavy metals. They also share their personal experiences treating patients in this area.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. Boham has contributed to many articles and wrote the latest chapter on Obesity for the Rankel Textbook of Family Medicine. 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.

Fat has been unfairly vilified for decades. The truth is that the right fats can make you healthy and lean, and can fuel your brain, while the wrong fats can be deadly. Unlike sugar, which is pretty much all bad, fats are complicated. Some people thrive on a high-fat diet, while others gain weight and struggle with abnormal cholesterol. However, even though fats are complicated, eating a fat-free diet is not good for your health. We need fats to survive. In this mini-episode, Dr. Hyman discusses why we should be eating fats with every meal, the seventh principle in his new book, “The Pegan Diet: 21 Practical Principles for Reclaiming Your Health in a Nutritionally Confusing World” out February 23, 2021.

The answer is food, and more specifically our food system. Very few people are able to connect the dots between some of the world’s most pressing issues in a way that lets us see the big picture.

Addressing The Root Causes Of Childhood Obesity | This episode is sponsored by Beekeepers Naturals and BLUbloxOur children are unfortunately being born into a toxic food environment. Currently, a third of American kids are overweight or obese and in addition to rising rates of childhood obesity, we are also seeing a significant increase in type 2 diabetes in children. Overweight children not only face unfair stigma and judgment, but they are also more prone to battling weight issues in adulthood. Yet, food manufacturers continue to produce and peddle junk to our children that we loosely call food. The good news is that you have control over what foods you bring into your home and the type of modeling you provide for your children when it comes to what to eat.In this episode, Dr. Hyman sits down with Dr. Elizabeth Boham to discuss the Functional Medicine approach to combating childhood obesity and they share patient cases they have treated related to childhood obesity. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices functional medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA.

The truth about meat is more nuanced than whether it is good or bad. While factory-farmed red meat is an environmental and climate catastrophe, is inhumane, and may have adverse health consequences, this is not true of meat from regeneratively raised animals. The real question we should be asking is, is meat healthy or harmful? In this mini-episode, Dr. Hyman discusses how to eat meat as medicine, the fifth principle in his new book, “The Pegan Diet: 21 Practical Principles for Reclaiming Your Health in a Nutritionally Confusing World” out February 23, 2021.

Returning To Ancient Remedies To Promote Health | This episode is brought to you by Paleovalley, ButcherBox, and Athletic GreensModern medicine has come a long way, there’s no doubt about it. But our ancient ancestors had an in-depth understanding of how to use food and plants as medicine and this wisdom still holds true today. Our conventional medical system heavily relies on prescription medication to silence, or “manage,” symptoms. I call this the “pill-for-ever-ill” model of medicine. This often turns into a lifelong dependence without ever getting to the root of the problem. If we instead look at where the imbalance is stemming from and use a variety of tools to treat it—like food, stress reduction, herbs, etc.—we can see profound improvements and, many times, a reversal of disease. I was so happy to connect with Dr. Josh Axe to talk more about how ancient remedies can help us create the vibrant health we deserve and avoid lifelong health struggles. Dr. Axe is a certified doctor of natural medicine, a doctor of chiropractic, and a clinical nutritionist with a passion to help people get healthy by empowering them to use nutrition to fuel their health. He is the bestselling author of Keto Diet, Eat Dirt, and Collagen Diet and author of the book Ancient Remedies. He is also the co-founder of Ancient Nutrition, which provides protein powders, holistic supplements, vitamins, essential oils and more to the modern world.

Is Histamine Intolerance The Cause Of Your Mysterious Symptoms? | This episode is sponsored by Athletic Greens and Dr. Hyman's Sleep Master Class.Most people are familiar with certain histamine conditions, such as the development of a welt from a bee sting or hives from a peanut allergy. However, symptoms ranging from brain fog to digestive problems, menstrual cycle problems, nausea, vomiting, edema, palpitations, and anxiety can all also result from issues of histamine intolerance. Unfortunately, this issue commonly goes undiagnosed, often resulting in years of ongoing frustration and suffering among individuals struggling to find the cause of their mysterious symptoms.In this episode, Dr. Hyman sits down with Dr. Todd LePine to talk about how they work with patients to get to the root cause of histamine intolerance. They discuss the rising prevalence of mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), how gut health influences histamine, and much more.Dr. 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. LePine teaches around the world, and has given lectures to doctors and patients at American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM), Age Management Medicine Group (AMMG), the University of Miami Integrative Medicine Conference, The Kripalu Center in Lenox, MA, and is on the faculty for American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M).

The Real Story About COVID Vaccines: What We Know, What We Don’t | This episode is brought to you by Bioptimizers, Thrive Market, and Athletic Greens.There’s no way around it, we’re being bombarded by an insane amount of information when it comes to COVID-19, and not all of it makes sense. As vaccines make their way across the country, the questions are only increasing and it can feel overwhelming to find answers from expert sources. While we don’t have all the answers, we are learning more every day. We’ve seen that for people 15 and older, COVID-19 can double our risk of dying this year. And while we know chronic disease puts us at an increased risk for severity and death, we don’t know why some perfectly healthy people still can’t fight this virus off. We’re seeing that vaccines will be a dramatic help for this virus, helping to reduce the risk of severe symptoms and death, but that they won’t stop transmission.I really wanted to talk to someone in-depth about where we are with COVID-19, what we can count on with the vaccines, and what we still don’t know. I knew Dale Harrison would be the perfect scientist to help me break down this topic. Dale is a senior executive with more than 20 years of experience in the biotech industry. He has held multiple VP and C-level positions with companies in the research tools and molecular diagnostics sectors. Dale currently works as a consultant with companies that are developing new clinical diagnostic platforms, including a company developing a CRISPR-based COVID test for the OTC market, and a metagenomics-based NGS platform for infectious disease testing in the human transplant market.This episode is brought to you by Bioptimizers, Thrive Market, and Athletic Greens.Right now you can try Bioptimizers Magnesium Breakthrough for 10% off, just go to bioptimizers.com/hyman and use the code HYMAN10 at checkout.Thrive is offering all Doctor's Farmacy listeners an amazing deal.

Fasting: Hype Or Ultimate Health Hack? | This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens, Paleovalley, and Cozy EarthThere’s been a lot of buzz about fasting in recent years, but sometimes it can be hard to tell a true health-promoting practice from a trend that lacks any real science behind it. Well I’m here to tell you today that fasting falls into the first category, with plenty of proven benefits to optimize health and slow the symptoms of aging. Fasting also does more than change the physical body. It’s estimated that 30% of our thoughts are about our next meal. That’s a lot of time and energy wrapped up in food, and fasting can help us regain control of ourselves, our minds, and so much more. On today’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy, I’m thrilled to sit down with my good friend and an expert on fasting, Dave Asprey. Dave 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. This episode is brought to you by Paleovalley, Athletic Greens, and Cozy Earth.Paleovalley is offering 15% off your entire first order.

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

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

Lol... Mark's verbal cues don't exactly match up sometimes with the other guy talking. I like to think he recorded his part separately 😀 Except of course where they interact.

Hey, I hope you are well. I have been listening to your podcasts for a while now. I am a student in human nutrition, and have recently left my Job as a Mental Health Support worker. I have tried to inform those around me, either personally or professionally about the importance of holistic health, especially personalised diets (mainly in mental health conditions), I have been hummered, dismissed and basically treated like I don't know what I am talking about. I live in the UK, and practically feel like I am the only healthcare professional on the level of functional medicine. I would be grateful to receive some communication from yourself, as I am not losing hope, and I will continue on my journey in pioneering for functional medicine, just feeling quite alone, and would love some advice if possible.

I don't know why it annoyed me to death that this woman kept saying 'nutritious'. Just say HEALTHY! Also, my God, what an unoriginal concept this ep brought forth. I hope I'm not the only one that finds this sort of bland mental health episode to be a total waste of time. /endrant
