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.

    How To Support Your Spiritual Health In The Time Of COVID-19

    How To Support Your Spiritual Health In The Time Of COVID-19

    We’re all trying to make sense of the new world order. And while my wife and I stay at home and navigate these unusual times, we find routine and practice to be the core of our wellbeing. We’re meditating every morning, going for walks in the woods, and taking afternoon work breaks to check-in and find time to connect. These seemingly simple actions have become the parts of our day that keep us grounded and optimistic, so we actually even schedule them into our calendars. 
    One of my favorite people to talk to about the benefits of spiritual and wellness practices is Gabrielle Bernstein. I was so happy to connect with her over a video-call for this week’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy. Gabby is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Universe Has Your Back and has written six additional bestsellers, including Super Attractor which launched in September 2019. She was featured on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday as a “next-generation thought leader” and The Oprah Winfrey Network chose Gabrielle to be part of the “Super Soul 100,” a dynamic group of 100 trailblazers whose vision and life’s work are bringing a higher level of consciousness to the world. Gabby provides a calm perspective to the crazy situation we find ourselves in.

    What You Need To Know About COVID-19 Testing with Steven Kleiboeker

    What You Need To Know About COVID-19 Testing with Steven Kleiboeker

    Multiple times a day, even multiple times an hour, we’re hearing new information about COVID-19. Some of the most common questions I’ve received have to do with testing. We had our first case of novel coronavirus the same day South Korea had its first case. Yet they are much further ahead of us when it comes to testing, something that has helped them quickly control the virus in a way we haven’t been able to do in the US. They also rapidly took on measures like quarantining and tracing the transmission of the virus.
    Of course, there are so many different components that go into successful testing and quelling a pandemic of this size. Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I hope to shed some light on those with my guest Dr. Steven Kleiboeker. Throughout our conversation, we cover who should be tested, when, and how, and what kinds of tests are currently available or soon will be. He is the Vice President of Research and Development for Viracor, and is responsible for the scientific direction and oversight of the company's research and development programs as well as the BioPharma and Clinical Trial Biomarker Services research services. Dr. Kleiboeker is board certified as a high-complexity laboratory director, technical supervisor, and clinical consultant by the American Board of Bioanalysis. Over his career, he has published more than 60 scientific manuscripts and serves on editorial boards and as a reviewer for several virological and microbiological journals.
    *For context, this interview was recorded on March 31, 2020.
    Here are more of the details from our interview: 

    What we know today about coronavirus, how and when is it transmittable, and why good hygiene is so important as a protective measure (2:29)
    The difference between the South Korean and American responses to initial cases, which were both reported on the same day (5:33)
    Issues with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s initial COVID-19 tests and testing protocol (7:53)
    The COVID-19 test that is currently approved for use (the RT-PCR test), what exactly it tests for, and why there is variation in how long it takes to get test results back (9:47)
    Issues with scaling-up the supply chain for all necessary components of coronavirus testing (13:53)
    The current approach to coronavirus testing and how it differs from what testing would look like in a perfect world (21:03)
    The roll out of coronavirus antibody testing, what antibody tests tell us, and can you get COVID-19 more than once? (28:46)
    What we could learn from quantitative testing, or knowing the viral load that an individual is carrying  (33:25)
    What should you do if you have COVID-19 symptoms? (36:29)
    Is it too late to do extensive testing to stop and slow the spread of COVID-19? (42:49)

    Special Episode: Medicine In The Age Of COVID-19 And Beyond

    Special Episode: Medicine In The Age Of COVID-19 And Beyond

    It’s natural to have a lot of questions right now. COVID-19 has quickly changed the way we think about health and go about our daily lives. And though we still have a lot to learn about the novel coronavirus, there are also a lot of ways we can keep ourselves, our families, and our communities strong and healthy.
    I recently hosted a webinar, along with the doctors at The UltraWellness Center, to answer some of the most important questions about COVID-19. If you missed it, I am sharing it here as a special episode of my podcast, The Doctor’s Farmacy.
    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. 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. 
    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 relationship 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. In August 2017, Dr. Hyman invited Dr. Papanicolaou to join The UltraWellness Center. 
    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.

    The Functional Medicine Approach To Cancer and Cancer Recurrence with Dr. Elizabeth Boham

    The Functional Medicine Approach To Cancer and Cancer Recurrence with Dr. Elizabeth Boham

    Numerous things can contribute to cancer development and cancer recurrence. Studies show diet, exercise, thoughts, feelings, and environmental toxins all influence the initiation, growth, and progression of cancer. And when it comes to treating cancer, we are good at cutting it, burning it, and poisoning it with surgery, radiation, and drugs, but many doctors fail to treat the root cause of the cancer. Functional Medicine empowers patients and practitioners to achieve the highest expression of health by working collaboratively to address the root causes of disease. For example, a Functional Medicine practitioner might say that yes, we still need radiation and other conventional approaches, but what else can we do? 
    In this mini-episode, Dr. Hyman is joined by Dr. Elizabeth Boham to discuss the Functional Medicine approach to cancer and cancer recurrence prevention. Dr. Boham shares patient cases as well as her own experience with a breast cancer diagnosis.

    In this episode, Dr. Hyman and Dr. Boham discuss:  

    Dr. Boham’s personal experience as a breast cancer patient and how it led her to begin practicing Functional Medicine
    The use of ketogenic and fasting-mimicking diets to treat and prevent cancer
    Why Functional Medicine looks at markers such as blood sugar and insulin levels, inflammation levels, toxic load, nutritional status, stress levels, and genetics to identify the underlying risk and cause of cancer
    Using diet and supplementation to influencing gene expression 
    Why obesity is linked to estrogen-related cancers such as breast, uteran, and prostate
    Environmental toxins and cancer

    The Real Reason For America’s Obesity Crisis And Chronic Disease Epidemic with Dr. David Kessler

    The Real Reason For America’s Obesity Crisis And Chronic Disease Epidemic with Dr. David Kessler

    Only about 12% of Americans are considered “metabolically healthy.” That means the other 88% of us aren’t meeting basic medical guidelines for things like blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol, and other markers of metabolic health. Which percentage do you fall into? When it comes to answering that question, one common factor is how many fast carbs you’re consuming. These are the carbohydrates that have been processed—yes, that includes sugar—but it also means starches like refined flours and other processed grains. Whole wheat bread is indeed a fast carb. 
    This week on The Doctor’s Farmacy I sat down with Dr. David Kessler to break down the differences between fast and slow carbs, how they affect our health, how our diet became so inundated with fast carbs and what we can do to regain metabolic strength. Dr. Kessler served as commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration under presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton. He is the author of A Question of Intent and The End of Overeating, a New York Times bestseller. He is a pediatrician and has been the dean of the medical schools at Yale and the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Kessler is a graduate of Amherst College, the University of Chicago Law School, and Harvard Medical School.

    What are fast carbs and how do processed carbohydrates affect us? (12:38)
    The glycemic index of bread is higher than that of table sugar (18:41)
    How processed carbs made from grains, corn, and wheat became the foundation of our diet (19:34)
    The food industry’s resistance to clear ingredient lists and labels on food (23:20)
    What are slow carbs? (26:02)
    Why we should all be able to get behind the idea of limiting fast carbs (32:00)
    Dr. Kessler’s own struggle with his weight, our tendency to turn to comfort foods in stressful time, and why it’s so difficult to break the vicious cycle that results from eating fast carb (33:29)
    The need for additional reform to the government’s dietary guidelines and how regulation differs in its oversight of the food industry vs the tobacco industry (41:08)
    Industry will follow the consumer (57:39)

    It Is Possible To Stop Or Reverse Dementia with Dr. Elizabeth Boham

    It Is Possible To Stop Or Reverse Dementia with Dr. Elizabeth Boham

    For decades we were taught there was no stopping or reversing cognitive decline, now we know this simply is not true. The brain responds to all the same insults as the rest of the body — stress, poor diet, toxins, lack of exercise or sleep, nutritional deficiencies, high blood sugar, insulin resistance, and more. The term dementia is just a label or diagnosis we associate with a collection of symptoms, it doesn't get to why a person has those symptoms. 
    In this mini-episode, Dr. Hyman is joined by Dr. Elizabeth Boham to discuss the Functional Medicine approach to treating cognitive health and to review patient cases in which they treated individuals with dementia, memory loss, and cognitive decline.
    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.

    In this episode, Dr. Hyman and Dr. Boham discuss:

    The need for personalized treatment in stopping or reversing dementia and cognitive decline.
    Addressing underlying root causes that may be driving dementia such as inflammation caused by high mercury levels, belly or visceral fat, diabetes, pre-diabetes, and insulin resistance.
    The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), a global network of dentists, health professionals, and scientists who research the biocompatibility of dental products, including the risks of mercury fillings, fluoride, root canals, and jawbone osteonecrosis. https://iaomt.org/
    How a high-fat diet can benefit the brain.
    The ability for exercise and meditation to promote BDNF, which is like Miracle-Gro for the brain.
    How the detoxification system works with the immune system to promote brain health.
