How To Use Your Breath To Prevent Disease

1/23/2023
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Pendulum. Of all the things we do each day, breathing is arguably the most important. While breathing’s most important job is to literally keep us alive, breathing can help in many more ways than just survival, including activating your parasympathetic nervous system, which helps slow your heart rate and lower your blood pressure. In today’s episode, I talk with James Nestor, Dr. Louis Ignarro, Wim Hof, and Dr. Jim Gordon...

Exciting discoveries emerging from the field of aging research are pointing to a radically new approach to how we deal with getting older. Science is getting to the root cause of why aging is often accompanied by a decline in function and decrepitude.

How To Heal The Brain And Prevent Alzheimer's Disease

1/16/2023
This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker, Athletic Greens, and Paleovalley. Until recently, the most popular approach to treating Alzheimer’s has been to focus on managing the symptoms in the brain. Now brain experts and neurologists know that a better, more effective approach to helping Alzheimer’s patients requires a full-body assessment with all-encompassing, highly individualized treatment that includes improving the microbiome, a healthy diet, plenty of exercise, hormonal...

Why We Need To Reframe Our Approach To Aging

1/13/2023
This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens and BiOptimizers. Modern medicine treats each individual disease as if it were a distinct entity separate from everything else that happens in the body. Rather than study the root causes and underlying mechanisms of aging, we look for drugs to block abnormal processes and suppress symptoms. Functional Medicine provides a new road map for healthy aging—one in which we don’t view all diseases of aging as different things. In today’s episode...

This episode is sponsored by Athletic Greens and InsideTracker. The array of frustrating symptoms that come along with autoimmune diseases leave those who are suffering constantly looking for answers. Simply put, autoimmune diseases—like rheumatoid arthritis, celiac sprue, inflammatory bowel, type 1 diabetes, Hashimoto’s, Graves’, lupus, fibromyalgia, and so many more—are conditions where the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues rather than a foreign molecule like bacteria.

Why Finding Your Why Is The Key To Health And Longevity with Simon Sinek

1/4/2023
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Thrive Market, ButcherBox, and Cozy Earth. I like to call myself a pathological optimist. Our thoughts are transferred into our biology, which means generosity, service, and altruism make us healthier from the inside out, all while giving us more joy in life. Unfortunately, many of us go through life with a list of shoulds without truly knowing the why behind our actions. It can be a daunting task to seek meaning and purpose, but taking...

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Athletic Greens, and Paleovalley. Heart disease, cancer, and stroke are the leading causes of death in the US. These diseases all have several risk factors in common, like smoking, physical inactivity, and poor diet, which policymakers often view simply as personal choices.

Are There Any Healthy Sugars And Sweeteners?

12/30/2022
This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and InsideTracker. As hunter-gatherers, we ate the equivalent of only 20 teaspoons of sugar a year. Today, we eat over 150 pounds per year per person, or half a pound per day. The average school kid eats 34 teaspoons of sugar a day. Many supermarkets and health-food stores now carry many sneaky sources of sugar disguised in unrecognizable ingredients and so-called “healthy” foods that contain as much—if not more—sugar than their regular...

How Food Subsidies Keep Ultraprocessed Food Prices Low And Chronic Disease Rates High

12/26/2022
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Essentia. Subsidizing food has been a practice in the US government for a very long time; we’ve subsidized sugar since 1790 and wheat, corn, and soy since 1933. All four of these foods, also known as commodity crops, are mainstay ingredients found in the ultra-processed foods driving chronic disease. And we taxpayers are footing the bill. Something is wrong with this picture. In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Robert...

What Fats And Oils Should You Avoid?

12/23/2022
This episode is brought to you by Paleovalley and Athletic Greens. We’ve been taught to think of fats and oils as a necessary evil—the unhealthy part of anything we eat and the stuff needed to keep food from sticking to the pot. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. Fat is essential for health, but it’s also confusing. There are so many different kinds of fat; some, we are told, are good, and some are bad. So, what’s actually true? In today’s episode of my series I’m calling...

But did you know there are different kinds of inflammation? Some of them are more alarming than others. Acute inflammation happens when you cut your finger and it gets red and a little swollen. This is helpful inflammation and usually resolves in about a week. But the inflammation that naturally happens as we age, called...
