How To Kill Zombie Cells To Slow Aging

11/25/2022
This episode is brought to you by Mitopure and Athletic Greens. Each of us is made up of an estimated 30 trillion cells, all of which work together in harmony to perform all of the functions necessary for us to survive from day to day and year to year. But sometimes cells go rogue and don’t conform to the normal cell life cycle. When that happens, we end up with cells in our body that start to cause damage. These rogue cells, called senescent or “zombie” cells, release inflammatory...

Is it Worse to Be Overfat or Under Lean? with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon

11/23/2022
This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, Rupa Health, and InsideTracker. If we want to age as well as possible, maintain function and strength, and stay independent as we age, there is a key area of our physiology that we need to pay attention to: muscle. Skeletal muscle is the currency of aging; it’s an essential lever in maintaining optimal metabolic health, reducing body fat, and supporting longevity. And a major piece of building and maintaining muscle is protein...

Why Our Current Healthcare System Keeps Us Sick And How To Fix It

11/21/2022
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and Essentia. Heart disease, cancer, and stroke are the leading causes of death—and premature death at that—in the US. These diseases all have several risk factors in common, like smoking, physical inactivity, and poor diet, which policy often views simply as personal choices. We need to begin looking at disease prevention beyond individual decision-making. In this podcast, I talk with Dr. Anand Parekh, Senator Bill Frist, and...

Six Ways to Reset Your Circadian Rhythm

11/18/2022
This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Athletic Greens. While there are many reasons that could account for occasional sleepless nights or a few days of having trouble focusing on the job, if you find yourself having persistent sleep-related issues, it could be that your circadian rhythms are out of balance. So what can you do when your body’s internal clockwork gets off? In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I delve into circadian rhythms—what they are,...

How To Heal Genetic, Cultural, and Individual Trauma with Dr. James Gordon

11/16/2022
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Cozy Earth. Trauma isn’t just psychological; it impacts us all the way down to our genes. And those epigenetic changes don’t just stay with us—they can be passed down through several generations. That means the trauma we may be working through isn’t just our own, it’s the stress and trauma of our parents, grandparents, and even great grandparents. I know this might sound bleak, but today’s conversation on The Doctor’s Farmacy...

How Your Health Is Impacted By Food Marketing And Our Dietary Guidelines

11/14/2022
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Thrive Market, and Essentia. Food marketing and misguided dietary guidelines play a large role in the food choices we make. These foods are frequently devoid of nutritional value and, even worse, they are addictive and keep you going back for more. Our bodies are built and maintained by what we put in our mouths; we literally are what we eat. Unfortunately, that means the majority of people in our country are made of ultra-processed food-like...

How To Reverse Acid Reflux

11/11/2022
This episode is brought to you by Paleovalley and Athletic Greens. Heartburn and reflux are major problems for so many people. At least 10 percent of Americans have episodes of heartburn every day and 44 percent have symptoms at least once a month. So why are we suffering from reflux? What is the cause? Is it something we are doing or something we are eating? Is there some other factor that’s driving this epidemic? In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I discuss simple...

How Do I Eat Regeneratively Raised Farmed Fish? With James Arthur Smith

11/9/2022
This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, InsideTracker, and Rupa Health. I would eat a lot more fish if I knew it was free from toxins like heavy metals, PCBs, and other dangerous compounds. It’s an incredibly healthy protein source when we can eliminate these factors, but sourcing clean fish can be tough. Today, I’m taking a deep dive into the issues surrounding fish, what kinds we should be eating, and everything in between with James Arthur Smith. James Arthur began his journey...

Healing Insomnia, Reducing Pain, And Other Benefits Of Medicinal Cannabis

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Essentia. There are actually many proven benefits of medical marijuana when it’s used the right way. In fact, cannabis may be one of the oldest documented herbal medicines on earth. And the body has a remarkable built-in system of endocannabinoid receptors that pair with it to reduce pain, improve sleep, increase mood, reduce nausea, and much more.

What Causes High Blood Pressure And How To Fix It

11/4/2022
This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and Athletic Greens. High blood pressure—medically known as hypertension—affects about 30 percent of adults. Left neglected, it can severely damage your quality of life and set the stage for heart disease, kidney complications, or a stroke. Conventional medicine typically treats hypertension with medications that are generally effective in reducing the risk of these complications. These medications frequently come with unintended side effects,...

The True Dangers Of Sugar with Dr. Robert Lustig

11/2/2022
This episode is brought to you by Mitopure, Rupa Health, and FOND Bone Broth. When we take a global bird's eye view of diets around the world, it’s clear that the Western diet makes humans sick. Any nation that has acquired our habits of eating highly-processed foods, rich in refined carbohydrates, fructose, and inflammatory fats, ends up metabolically unhealthy. Metabolic health is much more than just maintaining a healthy weight. It’s the sum of our cardiovascular, mitochondrial, liver,...

Why We Grow Old And How To Age Well

10/31/2022
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and InsideTracker. In Western culture, we’ve gained a negative view of aging. But in other cultures around the world, aging is celebrated and embraced. That’s because we define difficult symptoms like aches and pains, cognitive decline, and so many others as “aging” when they’re actually signs of dis-ease that can be prevented and often even reversed. Fortunately, there is much we can do to change the trajectory of aging starting at...

What Dietary And Lifestyle Changes Get Rid Of Acne?

10/28/2022
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens. Typically, the first thing we reach for to deal with acne is a lotion, potion, or cream to apply to the skin—and conventional medicine doctors frequently prescribe birth control pills. These approaches do not target the root cause of acne, however. A growing body of research suggests it’s not what we slather on our skin that matters most but rather what is going on inside our body. In today’s episode of my series I’m...

Why You Probably Need More Omega-3s In Your Diet

10/24/2022
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and FOND Bone Broth. Omega-3 is a fatty acid your body uses in all kinds of ways. Its benefits for our body are hard to overstate. But unlike most fats, your body can’t manufacture omega-3. Instead, it’s an “essential nutrient,” which means the only way to get it is through your diet. In today’s episode, I talk with Paul Greenberg, Dr. Andrew Huberman, and Dr. Daniel Amen about the importance of essential fatty acids like...

This episode is brought to you by Thrive Market and Athletic Greens. For years well-meaning doctors, echoed by the media, have emphasized what they have long believed is the intimate link between cholesterol and death by heart disease. If only it were so simple! You may hope that if you monitor your cholesterol levels and avoid the foods that are purported to raise cholesterol, you’ll be safe from America’s number-one killer. The truth is much more complex. Cholesterol is only one factor...

How To Know If Gluten Is An Issue For You

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and HigherDOSE. Gluten is one ingredient we all love in bread or our favorite pizza dough, but it’s often the cause of inflammation and leaky gut, which is implicated in so many health conditions such as IBS, skin problems, Hashimoto’s, high blood pressure, and more.
