Dr. Austin Perlmutter on Brain Health and Chronic Disease Think Like a Scientist

    • Science

Do you respond or react to your biology? In this episode, we welcome our guest Dr. Austin Perlmutter, an internal medicine physician, New York Times Bestselling author of Brain Wash, and researcher. We had an amazing conversation on the root of preventing chronic disease. The focal point of our conversation was on how our cognition affects the quality of our decisions which then drives behaviours that affect the quality of our life.

Dr. Austin Perlmutter is an internal medicine physician, New York times Bestselling author of Brain Wash, and researcher. He focuses on the interconnection between our immune system pathways, neurochemistry, and cognition. He has published various articles in the medical literature connecting inflammation, the gut microbiota, depression, diet, COVID-19, sleep, and immunity. His recent article is an extensive review on the COVID-19 pandemic and depression: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fneur.2021.657004/full 

Often times we react to our biology rather than respond to our biology. Often times we let our psychological state drive our behaviours. Dr. Austin Perlmutter talked about how to gain control of our actions by paying attention to how our brain works. Many tools were discussed throughout the episode to optimize our brain health and increase quality of life.
