What you eat, what you think, how well you sleep, how you feel emotionally, your level of physical activity, and how well the rest of the systems in your body function all affect your brain’s biology. Brain Weaver, the subject of our podcast today, invites you to achieve optimal brain health by successfully weaving together a tapestry of your bio-psycho-social-spiritual dimensions.

    What Our Government Thinks We Should Eat - Nina Teicholz

    How Are We to Interpret the New Dietary Guidelines for Americans?

I have just subscribed and am so excited. Dr Perlmutter is one of the most enlightened minds in medicine, not to mention a deeply compassionate educator. So without yet listening I am giving you 5 stars! Thank you.

Audio quality

I hope David and his team read this. Can you please sort out the audio level for your guest where they are dialing in and David’s audio level. The volume varies greatly and when you’re standing on a bus commuting to work, with 2 bags, an umbrella and hanging on, one doesn’t have enough hands to constantly adjust the volume between speakers. I get so frustrated I end up deleting the episode. This is a fundamental issue to podcasts. It’s a shame as there so much great content here.
