    How CoQ10 Supports Heart Health, Prevents Migraines, And Improves Cognition

    How CoQ10 Supports Heart Health, Prevents Migraines, And Improves Cognition

    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.
    CoQ10 is a compound whose job is to help cells generate energy, so it’s no surprise there are so many wonderful benefits to getting enough of this critical coenzyme. Although you can find it in supplement form, it is also naturally produced by the body. Unfortunately, however, as you age the production of CoQ10 declines. It also declines with chronic stress, toxin exposures, and certain medications. The decreased amount of CoQ10 in your cells contributes to the gradual loss of energy that most of us experience in our thirties and beyond. 
    In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I am talking all about coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10—what it is, what it can do for us, and how to ensure we are getting enough of this critical nutrient.
    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.

    The Power Of Finding A Purpose Bigger Than Yourself with Lynne Twist

    The Power Of Finding A Purpose Bigger Than Yourself with Lynne Twist

    This episode is brought to you by Cozy Earth, InsideTracker, and Essentia.
    Have you ever wondered what makes some people extraordinary? Is it something special some people just have at birth? Or are we all born the same only to evolve into greater things? I’m learning that no matter what age or phase of life we are in, we have the ability to make choices that change our lives and the lives of others for the better. Finding a purpose greater than ourselves is a catalyst for that change.
    Today’s conversation with Lynne Twist is an inspiring one. We take a deep dive into creating a life of meaning and commitment, what that means for our identity, and the ripple effect it has throughout the world. Over the past 40 years, Lynne has worked with over 100,000 people in 50 countries in the arenas of fundraising with integrity, conscious philanthropy, strategic visioning, and having a healthy relationship with money. An author and speaker, she has presented for the United Nations Beijing Women’s Conference, State of the World Forum, Synthesis Dialogues with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and the Governor’s Conference on California Women, among others. A recognized global visionary, Ms. Twist has been an advisor to the Desmond Tutu Foundation, and The Nobel Women’s Initiative.

    How To Reduce Your Toxic Burden And Prevent Exposure

    How To Reduce Your Toxic Burden And Prevent Exposure

    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and Beekeeper’s Naturals.
     
    Environmental toxins can wreak havoc on your body. And our bodies can only handle so much. There is a threshold, and when it’s passed, toxins can’t effectively be processed out of the body and are left lingering. When our toxic load is maxed out we start to see symptoms and dysfunctions. 
     
    In today’s episode, I speak with Dr. Casey Means, Harriet Washington, and Maggie Ward about reducing your toxic exposure, the compounded effect of toxic exposures, and more.
     
    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 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. 
     
    Harriet Washington has been the Shearing Fellow at the University of Nevada's Black Mountain Institute, a Research Fellow in Medical Ethics at Harvard Medical School, a senior research scholar at the National Center for Bioethics at Tuskegee University, and a visiting scholar at DePaul University College of Law. She is the author of Deadly Monopolies, Infectious Madness, Medical Apartheid, and A Terrible Thing to Waste, a book that looks at the devastating consequences of environmental racism—and what we can do to remedy its toxic effects on marginalized communities.
     
    Maggie Ward, MS, RD, LDN, is the Nutrition Director at The UltraWellness Center. She holds a master’s degree in nutrition from Bastyr University and focuses on using whole foods for holistic nutrition therapy. In addition, she completed her requirements to become a registered dietitian at Westchester Medical Center in New York.

    How To Kill Zombie Cells To Slow Aging

    How To Kill Zombie Cells To Slow Aging

    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.
    Mitopure is the first and only clinically tested pure form of a natural gut metabolite called urolithin A that clears damaged mitochondria away from our cells and supports the growth of new, healthy mitochondria. You can get 20% off right now at timelinenutrition.com/mark by using code MARK at checkout.

Dr Gabor Mate

Bravo Dr Hyman on your impactful interview with the man who changed everything about how I see and understand this world. There can’t be anyone who doesn’t think this extraordinary man is reading their life script. He is a gift of love, compassion, and hope. His book will arrive soon and I’m so very grateful. Thank you Dr Hyman for showing him such respect and giving us an amazing interview!

Aging men

I usually love listening to your podcasts. However in the last two (that I have listened to) you mentioned men aging well having wife/girlfriend 20 years younger!!!! Very disappointing comment, it seems to me that an healthy and intelligent man would like a partner that shares his values no matter how old they are. Is it a sign of health for a men to date younger women ?? N Deneault
