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 Eat Like Blue Zones In America with Dan Buettner

    How To Eat Like Blue Zones In America with Dan Buettner

    This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, InsideTracker, and Rupa Health.
    When we hear the phrase “Blue Zones,” most of us think of the healthy, long-living populations in places like Greece and Costa Rica. And while the large majority of these communities are indeed abroad (there is only one Blue Zone in the US), there are some hidden traditions that cooks around America have passed from generation to generation that we can embrace to create our own Blue Zone at home. It’s interesting to note that at the same time we’re seeing a huge interest in longevity, we’re seeing a drop in life expectancy for the first time in living history over the last few years. The biggest culprit is our processed food supply. 
    Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, Dan Buettner and I break down why chronic disease is so rampant in the US, what we can learn from the Blue Zones around the world, and how to bring Blue Zone principles into our own kitchens while embracing American traditions. Dan Buettner is an explorer, National Geographic Fellow, award-winning journalist and producer, and New York Times bestselling author. He discovered the five places in the world— dubbed Blue Zone hotspots, where people live the longest, healthiest lives. His articles about these places in The New York Times Magazine and National Geographic are two of the most popular for both publications.

    Why High Starch And Sugar Diets Drive Insulin Resistance And Chronic Disease

    Why High Starch And Sugar Diets Drive Insulin Resistance And Chronic Disease

    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and Essentia.
     
    The leading cause of inflammation is a poor diet—specifically one rich in addictive starches and refined sugars that keep us eating more than we need to because they don’t fill us up. This standard American diet (SAD) of refined flour and sugar is the gateway to insulin resistance, diabetes, and other metabolic issues, which cause rapid aging and chronic disease.
     
    In today’s episode, I talk with Dhru Purohit, Gary Taubes, and Dr. Ronesh Sinha about why we need to ditch the high-starch diet if we want to improve our metabolism and reduce chronic disease.
     
    Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry. His podcast, The Dhru Purohit Podcast, is a top 50 global health podcast with over 30 million unique downloads. His interviews focus on the inner workings of the brain and the body and feature the brightest minds in wellness, medicine, and mindset.
     
    ⁣Gary Taubes is an award-winning science and health journalist and cofounder and director of the Nutrition Science Initiative. He is the author of The Case Against Sugar, Why We Get Fat, Good Calories, Bad Calories, and The Case for Keto. Gary is a former staff writer for Discover and a correspondent for Science. He has written three cover articles on nutrition and health for The New York Times Magazine.
     
    Dr. Ronesh Sinha, author of The South Asian Health Solution, is an internal medicine physician who runs a lifestyle clinic in Silicon Valley focused on reversing insulin resistance in ethnically diverse patients. He is also an expert in corporate wellness and serves as the Chief Medical Officer for Silicon Valley Employer Forum, where he serves as a global adviser to shape health benefits for over 55 major Silicon Valley companies.

    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.
    Rupa Health is a place where Functional Medicine practitioners can access more than 2,000 specialty lab tests from over 20 labs like DUTCH, Vibrant America, Genova, and Great Plains. You can check out a free, live demo with a Q&A or create an account at RupaHealth.com.

    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.
