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. This podcast is a place for deep conversations about the critical issues of our time in the space of health, wellness, food, and politics. New episodes are released every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. I hope you'll join me.

    There’s a common misconception that getting older means getting weaker, but what if you could improve your fitness level at any age? The truth is, you can. 
    In today’s Health Bites episode, I’m joined by my dear friend and colleague, Dr. George Papanicolaou, a highly sought-after Functional Medicine practitioner on my team at the Ultra Wellness Center. Together, we explore the incredible benefits of exercise—a free, universally accessible powerhouse drug—from a functional medicine perspective. 
    We discuss the crucial, often-overlooked aspects of fitness for enhancing longevity, such as VO2 max, how to optimize our levels, and the role our mitochondria play. We also dive into the importance of resistance training and nutrition for enhancing body composition, strength, and muscle mass, vital for metabolic health, recovery from illness, and so much more.
    If you’re looking to leverage your exercise routine to enhance your overall health and quality of life, no matter your age, this episode is for you.

    One of the many reasons I was drawn to Functional Medicine is that it’s the medicine of asking “why?” and looking beyond the status quo to reimagine health. When we use this practice to assess the metabolic diseases we see today, we can see we’re in an energy crisis. We’re wrapped up in a web of physiologic root causes, but also a web of policies, industries, and economic incentives impacting our health from the ground up. I loved discussing all this and more on this episode of the podcast with Dr. Casey Means. 
    We take a deep dive into:

    Why we need to reimagine the healthcare system and how to use Functional Medicine as a framework for asking “why?”

    Using metabolic health as a barometer for our challenges as a society 

    A stark reality: Every institution related to our health makes money off of sickness

    Combining advanced technology with our own awareness to take back control of our health

    Five affordable biomarkers of metabolic syndrome to start with 

    And so much more!

    I hope you’ll tune in to learn how to dramatically improve your metabolic health and support foundational societal shifts, all at once.

    Our brain has the ability to adapt, change, and grow new neurons through a concept known as neuroplasticity. Compounds in psychedelics are finally being recognized as powerful tools to change the wiring of the brain which means we’re not doomed to become a statistic and lose our minds as we get older or carry destructive trauma in our bodies for the rest of our lives. 
    In this episode, Dr. Hyman speaks with Dr. Andrew Huberman, Dr. Sara Gottfried, and Paul Stamets about what exactly neuroplasticity is and how psychedelics like ketamine and psilocybin may be a helpful treatment for depression, trauma, addiction, and more.

    Carrying excess weight around your midsection can be frustrating, especially if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Yet, millions of people worldwide struggle with their weight, 
    It is crucial to understand that belly fat is more than just a layer under your clothes. It is an active endocrine organ that secretes pro-inflammatory cytokines throughout the body, contributing to our risk for chronic diseases.
    It's important to recognize that this is not a reflection of personal failure. Our modern-day lifestyles are overloaded with stress, environmental toxins, and convenience foods that actively work against us. In today’s episode, we will explore visceral fat (a.k.a. belly fat), the factors that contribute to it, and how to address it using the principles of Functional Medicine effectively.
    In this episode, I dive into:

    Understanding belly fat and obesity (2:51) 

    The role of diet and lifestyle in the accumulation of belly fat (10:48) 

    The impact of sleep, alcohol, and stress on weight gain (19:14) 

    What are obesogens, and how do they make us gain weight? (21:44)

    Health risks associated with visceral fat and belly fat (23:05) 

    Where does conventional medicine miss the mark? (24:14)

    Functional medicine's approach to assessing and addressing visceral fat (26:38) 

    Dietary and lifestyle changes to reduce visceral fat (30:52)

    Every parent wants to raise a healthy kid, but our modern world, industrialized diet, and increased stressors can make that goal feel confusing and difficult. The good news is that we can do so many things during a child’s life, and even before it starts, to give them the best possible chance to truly thrive in body and mind. I’m thrilled to share this in-depth conversation with pediatric Functional Medicine expert, and mom to 2 thriving children, Dr. Elisa Song.
    In this episode, we discuss:

    The disappearing act of Bifidobacterium infantis and why it matters 

    Why preconception support is so important for optimal epigenetic programming 

    The bloodwork Dr. Song runs when first assessing a child 

    One nutrient that might dramatically help your sensory-sensitive child

    A grounded discussion around the controversial topic of vaccines

    And so much more!

    No matter how old your kids are, it’s never too late to upgrade their health with holistic approaches. I know you’ll love this episode as much as I did!

    A declining mind is one of the scariest things we can imagine. Yet, many of us walk around every day with brain fog, which is a clue that our brains (and our bodies) need some support. Left unchecked, there can be long-term consequences, and not just for your brain. The good news is that changes to diet, reducing toxic burden and stress, improving sleep and gut health, and getting good movement can work wonders to clear up any fogginess.
    In this episode, Dr. Hyman speaks with Dr. Todd LePine and Max Lugavere about the Functional Medicine approach to reducing brain fog.

ground breaking

Thank you so much for validating what many of us already know, but we keep getting shut down from every direction.
If we try something, and we get healthier, then it is valid for us, and we should keep doing it. Randomized controlled trials are great, but the absence of one should never invalidate the real lived experience of one human being.

Good info, inconsistent sound quality

Dr Hyman, get yourself some better AV equipment! Otherwise, thank you for all of the insights and information.

My improved health

This is probably not the best way to communicate with you but I’m going to try to reach you on this forum.
I started listening to you about a year ago. I’m 76 and I have started eating more protein because of you, and I’ve eliminated sugar and flour…mostly. I’ve also begun lifting light weights regularly, along with my daily walking routine. I’ve noticed that my hair has stopped falling out, my eyesight has improved, I’ve lost weight, and I’m stronger. My normal weight was about 137 at 5’5”but since I’ve stopped eating sugar and flour, I now weigh 124! I look and feel great. I still have some bad habits, (wine), but I’ve cut back and I did sober January, for the second year in a row, and that felt good. I’m working on drinking less. I’ve eaten whole food for many years, no fast food or overly processed food. Because of you I just purchased organic coffee and have begun eating grass fed beef, and more organic fruits and vegetables. Thank you for helping me. I listen to you!
