    Creating Lasting Habits To Strengthen Immunity

    Creating Lasting Habits To Strengthen Immunity

    This episode is brought to you by Paleovalley, Athletic Greens, and Tushy.
    I don’t like to look at what I do as treating disease. I’d rather look at it as creating health. And we have a lot of power to do that ourselves, each and every day. This is something I especially like to remind people of as we continue through the pandemic—the right choices and habits can help us stay more resilient and healthy during what feels like an uncontrollable world health crisis. 
    Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I talk to my good friend Ken Cook, as part of EWG’s CleanCon Conference. In this conversation, Ken interviews me about establishing better habits for human and planetary health.
    Ken Cook is widely recognized as one of the environmental community’s most prominent and influential critics of industrial agriculture and the nation’s broken approach to protecting families and children from toxic substances. Under Cook’s leadership, EWG has pioneered the use of digital technologies to empower American families with easy-to-use, science-driven tools to help reduce their exposure to potentially harmful ingredients in food, drinking water, cosmetics, and other household products.

    How To Hack Your Age To Live Longer

    How To Hack Your Age To Live Longer

    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and ButcherBox.
     
    As the science of longevity has exploded in recent years, we have more access to innovative therapies, techniques, knowledge, and technology than ever before. Traditionally, we view aging as an inevitable consequence that happens to our bodies as we get older. We think that as we gain more years of life, it is a given that we begin to slow down, become less agile, lose our memories, and gain more chronic diseases. We define these things as “aging” when they’re actually signs of dis-ease that can be prevented and often even reversed. 
    In this episode of my new MasterClass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about creating vibrant, optimal health, to feel younger at any age. We discuss the latest science on whole-body health and longevity and share simple, accessible tips that you can use right now to start feeling younger at any age. 
    Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry.

    5 Steps To Reduce Brain Inflammation Today

    5 Steps To Reduce Brain Inflammation Today

    This episode is sponsored by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.
    While inflammation is a natural part of life that can serve a beneficial role, we start to see disease when inflammatory pathways are constantly activated. That’s why many brain symptoms—like brain fog, anxiety, memory loss, and more—can actually be caused by systemic inflammation. The foods we eat, the toxins we’re exposed to, our stress levels, and our genetics are just some of the many aspects that can impact the body—and the brain’s—propensity towards inflammation. 
    In this episode, I discuss inflammation in the brain with Dr. Todd LePine. We dive into the many factors that can drive neuroinflammation, the range of conditions that are linked to brain inflammation, and how we work with patients to cool this inflammation. I also talk with Max Lugavere about how nutritional deficiencies affect the brain.
    Dr. Todd LePine graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, specializing in Integrative Functional Medicine, and is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner. He has been practicing Functional Medicine for over 15 years focusing on Optimal Aging, Bio-Detoxification, Gastrointestinal Health, Systemic Inflammation, Autoimmune disorders and the Neurobiology of mood and cognitive disorders.
    Max Lugavere is a filmmaker, health, and science journalist and the author of the New York Times bestselling book Genius Foods: Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive While Protecting Your Brain for Life. He is also the host of the #1 iTunes health podcast The Genius Life. Max’s sophomore book is The Genius Life: Heal Your Mind, Strengthen Your Body, and Become Extraordinary, a lifestyle guide to living happily and healthily with proven, research-based lifestyle tactics, which we dig into more throughout this episode.

    What’s The Beef With Beef? Is There Meat That Is Good For You And The Planet? with Scott Lively

    What’s The Beef With Beef? Is There Meat That Is Good For You And The Planet? with Scott Lively

    This episode is brought to you by Joovv, BiOptimizers, and Cozy Earth.
    Meat is always a hot topic in the nutrition and wellness space. To eat it, or not to eat it? That is the oversimplified question of what is a much more complex topic. You see, we can’t lump all meat into one category. And we can’t think about meat as all or nothing—there’s much more to the story. Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, Scott Lively and I talk all about conscious meat-eating, and more specifically beef, as well as the nuances that come with it. Scott shares some helpful tips for improving the quality of the meat you eat.  
    Scott Lively is the co-founder of Raise American, which provides 100 percent grass-fed, organic, American, planet-friendly beef. He is an organic food entrepreneur and an absolute beef freak. Scott left a successful career in the IT industry to co-found what is now the largest organic beef company in the United States. Today, he oversees a broad portfolio of companies, private labels, and brands. Scott is an advocate of local economic development and regenerative farming practices applied to large agriculture. He is the author of For The Love of Beef: the Good, the Bad and the Future of America’s Favorite Meat.

    Foods And Habits To Boost Brain Health

    Foods And Habits To Boost Brain Health

    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and InsideTracker.
     
    At every meal, we make choices of what to feed our bodies—and our brains. Too much sugar and refined carbs, not enough good fats, inadequate intake of the right nutrients, and exposure to toxins can have a negative effect on our brains and even contribute to disorders ranging from brain fog to depression to Alzheimer’s. Nutrients are the fertilizer for the brain. When we get the right kinds, our brain can flourish and grow, even generating new cells in older age, long after science previously thought was possible.
    In this episode of my new MasterClass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host, Dhru Purohit, about using diet and lifestyle to support brain health. We also talk about why it’s important to treat the body when it comes to treating brain issues, and I share my own experience using Functional Medicine to heal my own brain.
    Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry. His podcast, 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.
