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.

    Prolozone and Nutritional Therapy for Osteoarthritis with Dr. George Papanicolaou

    Prolozone and Nutritional Therapy for Osteoarthritis with Dr. George Papanicolaou

    Prolozone and Nutritional Therapy for Osteoarthritis with Dr. George Papanicolaou | This episode is sponsored by AirDoctor
    Millions of Americans suffer from chronic joint pain, most commonly in the knee, due to osteoarthritis. Conventional medicine typically treats the symptoms of osteoarthritis but does not necessarily do anything to reverse it. Functional Medicine approaches these issues differently, treating and reversing chronic inflammation through lifestyle, diet, botanicals, targeted supplements, and more—including more “out of the box” therapies like ozone and prolozone.
    In this episode, Dr. Hyman sits down with his colleague, Dr. George Papanicolaou, to discuss their experiences treating chronic joint pain in patients with nutritional and prolozone therapy.
    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. Dr. Papanicolaou to join The UltraWellness Center in 2017. 
    In this conversation, Dr. Hyman and Dr. Papanicolaou discuss:

    Traditional therapies for arthritis and joint pain
    Why obesity is a risk factor for arthritis
    Microbiome of the gut can be found in the knee
    Using an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle interventions to treat osteoarthritis
    Why going gluten and dairy free, along with eliminating sugar, can improve joint pain
    How physical therapy can improve osteoarthritis
    How ozone and prolozone therapy works, and how it is used to treat arthritis, and how many treatments are typically needed
    Dr. Hyman’s personal experience with ozone treatment
    Supporting healing with nutrients 
    How prolozone can rebuild cartilage

    Speaking Up About The Things That Matter: Hidden Forms of Racism

    Speaking Up About The Things That Matter: Hidden Forms of Racism

    Like most of you, I’m feeling the heaviness of our national news. The injustice we continue to be reminded of through violent, devastating acts needs to stop. We cannot tolerate a system that ignores equality and deems it acceptable to ignore a human plea for air, for life. On April 4, 2018, on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s death, I was honored to be asked to speak at Riverside Church in Harlem. 
    The day was focused on MLK Jr.’s fight for civil rights and social justice for minorities and the poor. Today, in lieu of airing our previously planned episode, I am instead sharing that talk I gave at Riverside Church just over two years ago, as an acknowledgment of the targeting of Black lives in our society and the need for systemic change to protect Black health and Black lives.
    Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” We can no longer be silent about this.

    The Science Of Creating Happiness with Laurie Santos

    The Science Of Creating Happiness with Laurie Santos

    Over 40% of college students report feeling too depressed to function on a daily basis. Over 60% are overwhelmingly anxious. This was not always the case. COVID-19 aside, what is it about our modern times that is leading to stress instead of joy? One of my observations is that we’re meant to be human beings, not humans doing, yet we’re constantly just trying to get things done, to accumulate more possessions, to achieve power and success. But we can reframe our perspective of what matters and focus more on simply being—on sitting, listening, noticing—to improve our happiness and satisfaction in life. Today’s guest on The Doctor’s Farmacy, Laurie Santos, is the perfect person to talk to about actively working on increasing our happiness. 
    Laurie Santos is a Professor of Psychology and the Head of Silliman College at Yale University, as well as the host of the critically acclaimed podcast The Happiness Lab. After observing a disturbing level of unhappiness and anxiety among her students, she began teaching a course entitled "Psychology and the Good Life," which quickly became the most popular course in Yale's history and has also reached almost 2 million people from all over the world online. Although she’s now best known as a "happiness expert,” Santos's research explores the much broader question of "What makes the human mind unique?" and often includes comparing the cognitive capacities of non-human animals to humans.
    Here are more of the details from our interview: 

    When Laurie began to notice the mental health crisis among her students (2:18)
    How we are misguided about what will make us happy by our culture and our intuition (5:32)
    The happiest countries in the world and one likely reason why the United States doesn’t make the list (9:09)
    How happiness is created through gratitude practices and serving others (12:17)
    Using social media and our technological devices more productively (22:49)
    Hacking your stress through your breath, diet, and more (40:24)
    Exercise your compassion muscle and fight compassion fatigue through metta, or loving kindness meditation (44:34)
    Creating new habits and rituals to build happiness (50:43)
    Ways in which the coronavirus pandemic is changing and affecting us (55:08)
    Post-traumatic growth (58:00)

    Treating Acne From The Inside Out with Dr. Elizabeth Boham

    Treating Acne From The Inside Out with Dr. Elizabeth Boham

    Treating Acne From The Inside Out with Dr. Elizabeth Boham | This episode is sponsored by AirDoctor
    Acne is the #1 skin condition in the United States, affecting not just millions of teenagers but an increasing number of adults as well. We spend over a billion dollars for prescriptions and over-the-counter (OTC) products to cure acne, yet at best these are short-term solutions. Conventional medicine deals with symptoms, so their solutions for acne include lathering on potions and lotions, and taking antibiotics or strong liver-damaging medications. Functional Medicine, on the other hand, addresses the problem’s root cause. From this lens, we can understand that numerous factors contribute to acne, including nutritional status, stress, toxicity, inflammation and hormonal and gut imbalances.
    In this mini-episode, Dr. Hyman is joined by Dr. Elizabeth Boham to discuss the Functional Medicine approach to treating acne and other skin issues.
    Dr. Elizabeth 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.
    In this episode, Dr. Hyman and Dr. Boham discuss:

    Why what you’re eating is so much more important than what you put on your skin
    How topical skin treatments can work in short term but cause issues in the long term 
    Foods that can commonly cause acne, including sugar, starch, dairy, and processed foods
    How sugar affects our microbiome and immune system
    How Dr. Boham treated two patients with acne 
    The gut-skin connection
    Nutrients that are really important for skin to turn over, including vitamin A and zinc
    How toxins such as pesticides and BPA can affect skin and overall health 
    Supporting your detoxification system through diet, hydration, sweat, and more

    Is Your Food Grown by Oppressed Farmworkers? with Kerry Kennedy

    Is Your Food Grown by Oppressed Farmworkers? with Kerry Kennedy

    Kerry Kennedy - Is Your Food Grown by Oppressed Farmworkers? | Brought to you by Thrive Market, Athletic Greens, and Theragun
    Social injustice is all around us. With the age of COVID-19, we see it in the higher rates of illness in our most underserved communities. On a larger, everyday scale we see it in the exploitation of farmworkers we all rely on to produce our food. Of course, these are only two examples of many human rights issues that we all should be thinking about. We often make a mistake in thinking we’re too insignificant to help. We’re not politicians, lobbyists, philanthropists, so what could we possibly do? The answer is a lot—with each small step of activism we take, we send positive ripples out into our communities and the rest of the world. I was so excited to sit down with my good friend Kerry Kennedy to talk about human rights activism and how her family has historically been a part of producing positive social change. 
    Kerry is the president of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights. Since 1981, she has worked on diverse human rights issues including child labor, disappearances, indigenous land rights, judicial independence, freedom of expression, ethnic violence, impunity, women's rights, and the environment. Kerry is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Being Catholic Now, Robert F. Kennedy: Ripples of Hope, and Speak Truth to Power: Human Rights Defenders Who Are Changing Our World. Kerry founded RFK Compass, which convenes biannual meetings of institutional investors who collectively control $5 to $7 trillion in assets to address the impact of human rights violations on investment outcomes. She serves on the boards of the U.S. Institute of Peace, Human Rights First, Ethics in Action, SDG USA, Sustainable Development Goals Center for Africa, Health eVillages, Kailash Satyarthi Children's Foundation, Nizami Ganjavi International Center as well as several public companies.

    How Food Policy Impacts Your Health with Senator Bill Frist, MD

    How Food Policy Impacts Your Health with Senator Bill Frist, MD

    Maintaining good health is front and center in most of our minds right now, and for good reason. As we take in the latest news on COVID-19 each day, it’s the perfect time to take a deeper look at why some of us are more susceptible to this virus. How can we collectively improve our immunity to combat this pandemic more successfully? How can we protect ourselves in the future? There are many ways. And you won’t be surprised that food and the policies that influence our food system are a huge piece of that puzzle. 
    Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy I talk with Senator Bill Frist, a politician, doctor, farmer, author, and much more. Senator Frist is a heart and lung transplant surgeon and former U.S. Senate Majority Leader. He represented Tennessee in the U.S. Senate for 12 years and was elected Majority Leader in 2003. 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 performed over 150 heart and lung transplants, authored over 100 peer-reviewed medical articles, and published seven books on topics such as bioterrorism, transplantation, and leadership. 
    Throughout this episode, we discuss how a lack of appreciation for data and science among policymakers is affecting how we handle COVID-19, as well as healthcare in general.
    *For context, this interview was recorded on May 1, 2020.
    Here are more of the details from our interview: 

    Lack of appreciation for data and science among policymakers, as it relates to COVID-19 and healthcare in general (4:35)
    Is there an opportunity to improve our food system through policy at this moment in time? (7:28)
    Health and economic benefits of providing medically tailored meals to people with chronic disease (11:03)
    Food industry lobbying in Congress (15:44)
    Reforming our national food stamp and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programs (22:06)
    How policy moves from an idea to implementation, and why language and storytelling are critical to this process (26:03)
    Training COVID-19 contract tracers to be community health workers (41:24)
    Addressing challenges around the way we grow food and our commodity crop food system (52:13)
    Our health and its effect on our national security (1:01:35)
