    Do You Need To Take Probiotics?

    Do You Need To Take Probiotics?

    This episode is brought to you by Gut Food, Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and InsideTracker.
     
    Probiotics are critical to protecting and rebuilding the gut. They compete with bad gut bugs and yeast, modulate intestinal function, and are essential to changing and improving immune function. They are also anti-inflammatory, they help us break down food, and they build nutrients. In this episode of my Masterclass series, the second in a series on gut health, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about how probiotics work in the gut, the best fermented foods to eat, and much more.

His podcast, The Dhru Purohit Podcast, is a top 50 global health podcast with over 30 million unique downloads.

    Daily Steps To Prevent Heart Disease

    Daily Steps To Prevent Heart Disease

    This episode is brought to you by Gut Food, ButcherBox, and Paleovalley.
    Heart disease is the number-one killer in the world, and it is often thought of as a cholesterol problem. When you take a closer look, however, there are other factors that drive this chronic disease that can’t be fixed by the most commonly prescribed medication: statin drugs. The way you eat, how much you exercise, how you manage stress, and more all contribute to heart disease.
    In this episode, I talk with Dr. Aseem Malhotra, Dr. Stanley Hazen, and Dr. Cindy Geyer about why heart disease is easier to prevent than to reverse, why statins are not the answer in most cases, and how the gut microbiome is connected to heart health.
     
    Dr. Aseem Malhotra is an NHS-trained consultant, cardiologist, and visiting professor of Evidence-Based Medicine at the Bahiana School of Medicine and Public Health in Salvador, Brazil. He is a pioneer of the lifestyle medicine movement in the UK and in 2018 was ranked by software company Onalytica as the number-one doctor in the world influencing obesity thinking. He is the author of, The Pioppi Diet, coauthored with Donal O'Neill, The 21-Day Immunity Plan, and, A Statin-Free Life.
    Dr. Stanley Hazen is both the chair of the Department of Cellular & Molecular Medicine at the Lerner Research Institute and section head of Preventive Cardiology & Rehabilitation at the Heart and Vascular Institute of the Cleveland Clinic. He’s published more than 400 peer-reviewed articles and has over 50 patents from his pioneering discoveries in atherosclerosis and inflammatory disease. Dr. Hazen made the seminal discovery linking microbial pathways to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease.
    Dr. Cindy Geyer received her Bachelor of Science and her Doctor of Medicine degrees, with honors, from the Ohio State University. She completed her residency in internal medicine at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY, and is triple board certified in internal medicine, integrative medicine, and lifestyle medicine. She joined The Ultrawellness Center in 2021 after practicing and serving as the medical director at Canyon Ranch for 23 years.
     
    This episode is brought to you by Gut Food, ButcherBox, and Paleovalley.
    Gut Food uses the power of three critical gut-supporting components—prebiotics, probiotics, and polyphenols—and five ingredients at clinically validated dosages to help reduce inflammation, support the growth of beneficial gut bacteria, improve digestion and bloating, and support mood & energy.

    Why Gut Issues Are On The Rise And How To Fix It

    Why Gut Issues Are On The Rise And How To Fix It

    The gut microbiome plays a role in every disease, so why aren’t we doing more to protect and restore it? One third to one half of all Americans have gut issues due to the constant consumption of industrialized foods, glyphosate, food additives, and more. This is a problem—and it’s time for us to take action.
    In this episode of my Masterclass series, the first in a series on gut health, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about the importance of polyphenols for our gut health. We also discuss my gut-health journey, which led me to dig deep into understanding the value of a healthy gut and diverse microbiome, and how to get there.

His podcast, The Dhru Purohit Podcast, is a top 50 global health podcast with over 30 million unique downloads.

Excellent 👌

Being in the uk it is great that that we can get a true feeling of how our American brothers are feeling as I have stopped watching and listening to the media as it’s garbage.

Although I do not agree with some of your guests I welcome an opposite view which in modern media we do not get especially when it is anything medical so keep up the great work hence the five stars rating

Functional Medicine

The go-to podcast for Functional Medicine, this is the future of medicine and Dr Hyman has been on the case for over 20 years. Ask not what your health service can do for you, but what you can do for your health service.

More of Mark and much less of Dhru please!

Mark Hyman is the go to voice in functional medicine. With a long clinical experience, wisdom and likability he is always worth listening to. If only we all had Mark as our doctor! However, he has let his sidekick/producer get out of control. Dhru has no medical knowledge of worth and yet loves the sound of his own voice. He is fine at the level of basic interviewer but lacks the insight to handle more complex issues. I can do without his banalities about life and medicine. It is annoying to have to keep tabbing forwards to cut out his comments. He needs to be reined in otherwise I, for one, will be discontinuing my subscription.
