His new book, Extraordinary Awakenings shows just how we can harness the ability to transform through turmoil.

He's the current chair of the Transpersonal Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society. He's the author of 13 books, which have been published in 20 languages, and also writes blog articles for Scientific America and Psychology Today.

    Encore Episode: If You're Gluten Free, You May Not Have to Be

    Although eliminating wheat and dairy from your diet may help ease your symptoms, it is a temporary solution. In his book, Eat Wheat, Dr. John Douillard, a former NBA nutrition expert and creator of LifeSpa.com, addresses the underlying cause of the gluten-free epidemic. Dr. Douillard explains that after 3.4 million years of eating wheat and only 500,000 years of hunting meat, humans are actually genetically better equipped to eat wheat than meat. He also discusses how a breakdown in digestion has damaged the intestinal wall and leaked undigested foods and environmental toxins into the body’s lymphatic system, causing “grain brain” symptoms and food allergies. Although eliminating wheat and dairy from your diet may help your symptoms, it is a temporary solution. Eat Wheat addresses the root cause: the inability to digest well and break down harmful pollutants and toxins that can lead to more serious health concerns. Listen as Dr. Douillard joins Dr. Friedman to share his research and why you might be able to add wheat back into your diet.
