    Doctors Reveal How They Healed Their Autoimmune Disease

    Doctors Reveal How They Healed Their Autoimmune Disease

    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.
    As a whole, autoimmune disease affects over 80 million Americans and five percent of the population in Western countries. They include type 1 diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, colitis, Crohn’s disease, and dozens of others. While your body is designed to fight off harmful things like infections, toxins, allergens, or a stress response, with autoimmune issues the body directs a hostile attack on its own joints, brain, skin, and more.
    In this episode, Dr. Hyman speaks with Dr. Cynthia Li and Dr. Terry Wahls about their personal stories of working through autoimmunity and how it led them to help others using Functional Medicine. They also dive into the underlying triggers of inflammation such as stress, hidden infections, food allergies or sensitivities, toxic exposure, genetic predisposition, nutrient deficiencies, and leaky gut. 
    Dr. Cynthia Li received her medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. She’s practiced as an internist in many settings, including Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, San Francisco General Hospital, and St. Anthony Medical Clinic serving the homeless. She currently has a private practice in Berkeley, CA and is the author of, Brave New Medicine: A Doctor’s Unconventional Path to Healing Her Autoimmune Illness.
    Dr. Terry Wahls is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical trials. In 2018, she was awarded the Institute for Functional Medicine’s Linus Pauling Award for her contributions in research, clinical care, and patient advocacy. Dr. Wahls was confined to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. She restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain and now pedals her bike to work each day. She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles, and the cookbook The Wahls Protocol Cooking for Life.

    Advances In Therapeutic Uses Of Medical Marijuana with Dr. Mikhail Kogan

    Advances In Therapeutic Uses Of Medical Marijuana with Dr. Mikhail Kogan

    This episode is sponsored by Even, BiOptimizers, and Athletic Greens
    There is a lot of noise around medicinal marijuana; so much so that just the thought of trying it might be overwhelming. There are actually many proven benefits when it’s used the right way, some of which I’ve experienced myself. When I was recovering from mold toxicity combined with C. diff and a slew of other factors that ruined my gut, I was so nauseous that I couldn't eat and was rapidly losing weight. None of the anti-nausea medications I tried were working, but marijuana did. 
    Now, there are a lot of nuances to its use and much more research to be done. To understand what the data currently shows us on medicinal cannabis and where someone might start if they’re curious, I’m excited to sit down with an expert on the topic, Dr. Mikhail “Misha” Kogan. Dr. Kogan is the medical director of the George Washington University Center for Integrative Medicine, and Associate Professor of Medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine. He has recommended medical marijuana to thousands of patients and is a frequent lecturer on medical cannabis to professional audiences across the nation.

    Bloating: Getting Rid Of Your Food Baby With Functional Medicine with Dr. Elizabeth Boham

    Bloating: Getting Rid Of Your Food Baby With Functional Medicine with Dr. Elizabeth Boham

    This episode is sponsored by ButcherBox and Tushy.
    Bloating is a very common and uncomfortable condition where your belly increases in size, often occurring after eating and increasing as the day goes on. Twenty to thirty percent of the population regularly experiences bloating. If you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, that percentage jumps to 96%. Bloating is a sign of an imbalance in the gut, often caused by dysbiosis, food intolerances, bacterial overgrowth, and stress. While conventional medicine usually treats the symptoms of bloating, Functional Medicine treats the entire ecosystem of the body, including repairing and rebuilding the gut.
    In this episode, Dr. Hyman discusses bloating and “food babies” with Dr. Elizabeth Boham. They talk about lactose intolerance as a common cause of bloating and how this uncomfortable condition can be successfully treated. They also share a case study of a 35-year-old man and the protocol that helped him.
    Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing. Dr. Boham has contributed to many articles and wrote the latest chapter on Obesity for the Rankel Textbook of Family Medicine. She is part of the faculty of the Institute for Functional Medicine and has been featured on the Dr. Oz show and in a variety of publications and media including Huffington Post, The Chalkboard Magazine, and Experience Life. Her DVD Breast Wellness: Tools to Prevent and Heal from Breast Cancer explores the Functional Medicine approach to keeping your breasts and whole body well.

    How SIBO can be a cause of bloating
    Conventional medicine vs Functional Medicine treatment of bloating

    5 Steps To Destroy Negative Thoughts For Better Health

    5 Steps To Destroy Negative Thoughts For Better Health

    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.
     
    Our emotional health impacts our physical health, there is no way around it. Traumas and toxic beliefs are scary to unpack but when you do, you give yourself the freedom and opportunity for dynamic growth. In this episode, Dr. Hyman is joined by Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Daniel Amen, Byron Katie, Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, and Lauren Zander. They explore how focusing on your emotional health as much as your physical health will have big payoffs for your wellness and happiness throughout life.
     
    Since 2010, Dr. Joe Dispenza has partnered with scientists and universities to perform extensive research on the effects that meditation has on the brain and body. During his advanced retreats around the world, his team has gathered more than 8,000 brain scans and 4,000 heart-rate variability measurements in an attempt to correlate the effects that sustained elevated emotions and self-regulation have on heart and brain function, immune response, and overall mind-body health.
     
    The Washington Post called Dr. Daniel Amen the most popular psychiatrist in America and Discover Magazine listed his brain imaging research as the top neuroscience story for 2015. He is a double board-certified psychiatrist and ten-time New York Times bestselling author. 
     
    Byron Katie's simple yet powerful process of self-inquiry, which she calls The Work, consists of four questions and the turnaround, which is a way of experiencing the opposite of what you believe. Her books include the bestselling Loving What Is, I Need Your Love—Is That True?, A Thousand Names for Joy, and A Mind at Home with Itself.
     
    Dr. Rangan Chatterjee is regarded as one of the most influential medical doctors in the UK and wants to change how medicine will be practiced for years to come. His mission is to help 100 million people around the globe live better lives. He hosts the most listened to health podcast in the UK and Europe, Feel Better, Live More—which regularly tops the Apple Podcast charts and is listened to by over 2 million people every single month.
     
    Lauren Handel Zander is the Co-Founder of Handel Group®, an executive life coaching company. Her coaching methodology, The Handel Method®, is taught in over 50 universities and institutes of learning around the world, including MIT, Stanford Graduate School of Business, NYU, and the New York City Public School System. Lauren is also the creator of Inner.U: Learn to Human BetterⓇ , the online coaching course that teaches the entirety of The Handel Method, which has been used by dozens of celebrities, CEOs, and entrepreneurs since 2004, and she is the author of Maybe It’s You, a no-nonsense, practical manual that helps readers figure out not just what they want out of life, but how to actually get there.

    Genetics, Obesity, Diabetes, And Risk Of COVID: A Functional Medicine Perspective

    Genetics, Obesity, Diabetes, And Risk Of COVID: A Functional Medicine Perspective

    This episode is brought to you by Kettle & Fire, Beekeeper’s Naturals, and Thrive Market.

    Did you know that 63% of Covid-19 hospitalizations can be linked back to at least one of four pre-existing conditions, all of which are largely preventable through diet and lifestyle choices? Obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and heart failure are strongly linked to more severe Covid outcomes. These cardiometabolic diseases represented a different type of pandemic, long before Covid-19 hit. We can make incredible reductions to our risk of these health problems, and even reverse them, using the power of food. Even people with genetic predispositions can significantly reduce the risk of any of these diagnoses and the Covid consequences that can come with them.

    Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I talk to Dr. Ronesh Sinha, author of The South Asian Health Solution. He 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.

Important information to digest for health

I think it’s very relevant for your audience to know that Dr Amen’s clinics here in So. Cal, do not take insurance. Hence if your not wealthy, you can’t see his doctors nor have any testing to get better. So I ask you Dr, Hyman, Good Food and Wellness… is it not for everyone?! Not just the wealthy?
