The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.

Dr. Mark Hyman

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 morning. I hope you'll join me.

How To Improve Your Health With Probiotics
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and InsideTracker. Your gut is your inner garden—the more good bugs you have in it the more likely it is to flourish. Our gut bacteria regulate many of our bodily functions, from creating vitamins to controlling our immune system, our brain function, and, of course, our metabolism and weight. They are critical to our long-term health. But even if you’re eating the right things, you may need some outside assistance maintaining plentiful and diverse gut bacteria. Probiotics help populate your gut with beneficial bacteria, improving your sleep, daily elimination, brain health, and so much more. In today’s episode, I talk with Dhru Purohit, Dr. Tracy Shafizadeh, and Dr. Elizabeth Boham about probiotics, the importance of the gut microbiome starting in infancy, and why you should work with a skilled practitioner to choose the right probiotic for you. Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry.

How To Use Nutrients To Support Our Brain Health
This episode is brought to you by Beekeeper’s Naturals and Athletic Greens.Your brain is an organ that’s connected to everything else happening in your body. Most of us never learn how to manage our energy and bodies. Instead, we use drugs like sugar, caffeine, and alcohol to self-medicate and manage our energy and moods. We don’t connect our behaviors and choices with how we feel. Many of us get too little good food, nutrients, light, air, water, rest, sleep, rhythm, exercise, community, love, meaning, and purpose. We’re exposed to far too much poor-quality food, stress, toxins, and allergens. But even if you manage all those things correctly, you still might not be getting the right amount of certain nutrients that support your brain and body. That’s where supplements come in.In today’s episode in my series I’m calling Health Bites, I am talking about how to heal our broken brains with the right nutrients. The brain is resilient and can recover and heal when given the right conditions.This episode is brought to you by  Beekeeper’s Naturals and Athletic Greens.Right now, Beekeeper’s Naturals is giving my community an exclusive offer.

A Roadmap To Creating Healthy Love And Relationships with Mia Lux
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, BiOptimizers, and InsideTracker.Our relationships affect our health and happiness. The problem is that we’re never taught how to seek, create, nurture, and assess our relationships the same way we do our careers and bank accounts. But the cost of bad relationships on ourselves and our society truly adds up. The relationships many of us grew up around and might consider “normal” are in fact dysfunctional, creating a negative cycle we often don’t even realize we’re in. So how can we find good love, create good relationships, and keep them? That’s what today’s conversation with Mia Lux is all about. Mia merges the playful and the profound—drawing on her experience as a start-up CEO, stand-up comedian, personal growth junkie, and recovering lawyer. For over 7 years, Mia has been an international host, comedian & facilitator, specializing in designing and facilitating top wellness/personal development experiences around the world.

How To Treat The Root Cause Of Thyroid Problems
This episode is sponsored by Paleovalley and Pendulum.Thyroid disease affects one in five women and one in ten men, yet 50 percent of people with thyroid disease go undiagnosed. The main role of thyroid hormone is to stimulate metabolism, and it affects almost every function of the body.

Why Most Of Us Are Nutrient Deficient And What To Do About It with Chris Kresser
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Cozy Earth.If you’ve ever wondered if supplements are worthwhile or just create expensive urine, this is the podcast episode for you. While I wish it wasn’t the case, I do believe we need supplements to make up for the nutrients we can no longer get through food alone. It’s extra important to note, though, that not all supplements are created equal. And please keep in mind they’re called “supplements” for a reason, not “replacements”—they are meant to supplement a healthy diet and lifestyle to provide the most impact.Today, I’m excited to take a deeper dive into this topic with one of my most trusted sources when it comes to nutrition and dietary research, Chris Kresser.

Simple Practices And Tips For Better Sleep
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and Mitopure. Sleep is a keystone of health. Most people know they should get more high-quality sleep, but they don’t really know where to start. But understanding the way our brain and neurotransmitters work means we can hack our sleep to not just feel amazing but to level up our focus, skills, and knowledge. And it’s not all about what happens at night, either—getting the right exposure to light at the right times has a profound impact on our circadian rhythms and the way our bodies transition to sleep. In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Roger Seheult, Dhru Purohit, and Dr. Andrew Huberman about why optimizing your sleep should be prioritized and how you can get better sleep. Dr. Roger Seheult is currently an associate clinical professor at the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine, and an assistant clinical professor at the School of Medicine and Allied Health at Loma Linda University.

What's Causing Your IBS And How To Heal Your Gut
This episode is sponsored by InsideTracker and Athletic Greens.Believe it or not, the surface area of your small intestine, which is where your food is absorbed, is the size of a tennis court. Your small intestine is also the home of your gut-immune system, which accounts for about 60 percent of your total immune system. The lining of this sophisticated system is just one cell layer away from a toxic sewer where all of the bacteria and undigested food particles live in your gut. If that lining breaks down—from stress; too many antibiotics or anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen; steroids; intestinal infections; a low-fiber, high-sugar diet; alcohol; and more—your immune system will be exposed to foreign particles from food, bacteria, and other microbes. This, in turn, creates havoc that can lead to an irritable bowel and other system-wide problems including allergies, arthritis, and autoimmune and mood disorders.In today’s episode of a new series called Health Bites, I discuss how to heal irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and upregulate your gut health, which is at the forefront of Americans’ most common health complaints.This episode is sponsored by InsideTracker and Athletic Greens.InsideTracker is a personalized health and wellness platform like no other.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and FOND Bone Broth.Why are we seeing more chronic disease, stress, obesity, addiction, and so many other states of illness than ever before, despite having the most advanced medical system in the world?Because we aren’t living in a natural and normal world.

How To Know If You're Magnesium Deficient And What To Do About It
This episode is sponsored by ButcherBox and Athletic Greens.Think of magnesium as the relaxation mineral. Anything that is tight, irritable, crampy, and stiff—whether it is a body part or even a mood—can be a sign of magnesium deficiency. This critical mineral is actually responsible for over 600 enzyme reactions and is found in all of your tissues—but mainly in your bones, muscles, and brain. You must have it for your cells to make energy, for many different chemical pumps to work, to stabilize membranes, and to help muscles relax. Yet, so many of us are deficient in this important mineral. In today’s episode of a new series called Health Bites, I discuss why magnesium deficiency is a huge problem, why most of us are deficient, how to identify if you are magnesium deficient, and what to do about it.  This episode is sponsored by ButcherBox and Athletic Greens.ButcherBox makes it easy to get humanely raised meat and wild-caught, sustainable seafood by delivering it right to your doorstep.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, and BiOptimizers.Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, affects 5 to 10% of women in their childbearing years. Despite the many women struggling with the difficult symptoms of PCOS, we still know little about it.

Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I’m excited to talk to Dr. Heather Huddleston to dig into the nuances and research around PCOS.Dr. Huddleston is the founder of the UCSF Multi-disciplinary PCOS Clinic and Research Center. This clinic provides care via an integrated group of providers with expertise in reproductive endocrinology, dermatology, nutrition, and psychology.

Using Diet And Lifestyle To Reverse Symptoms Of MS
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and InsideTracker. The most profound cases of healing are in people who refuse to give up. Even if they’ve found some things that improve their condition, they continue searching for new ways to feel better and better. This is how we break down walls in medicine. The Functional Medicine methodology is the same; there is no end to searching for what is underneath the symptoms. Functional Medicine healing protocols can ultimately help change the prognosis of so many conditions, including the autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis.  In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Terry Wahls and Dr. Todd LePine about using diet, meditation, and much more to reverse devastating autoimmune disease symptoms. Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa. Her secondary progressive multiple sclerosis confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years, but she restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for mitochondrial health and now pedals her bike to work each day. She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine, 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: The Revolutionary Modern Paleo Plan to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions. Dr. Todd LePine graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and is board certified in Internal Medicine, specializing in Integrative Functional Medicine. He is an Institute for Functional Medicine certified practitioner. Prior to joining The UltraWellness Center, he worked as a physician at Canyon Ranch in Lenox, MA, for 10 years. Dr. LePine’s focus at The UltraWellness Center is to help his patients achieve optimal health and vitality by restoring the natural balance to both the mind and the body. His areas of interest include optimal aging, bio-detoxification, functional gastrointestinal health, systemic inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and the neurobiology of mood and cognitive disorders. This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and InsideTracker. Rupa Health is a place where Functional Medicine practitioners can access more than 2,000 specialty lab tests from over 20 labs.

How This Molecule Prevents Aging And Disease
This episode is sponsored by InsideTracker and Athletic Greens.Glutathione is the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease—yet you’ve probably never heard of it. It’s the secret to preventing aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia, and more, and it is necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer’s disease. The good news is your body produces its own glutathione. The bad news is poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections, and radiation all deplete your glutathione levels.In today’s episode of a new series called Health Bites, I discuss what glutathione is, why it’s important, and tips to help you optimize your glutathione levels, improve your detoxification system, and help protect yourself from chronic illness.This episode is sponsored by InsideTracker and Athletic Greens.This Labor Day, InsideTracker will take 26% off their top-selling Ultimate Plan if you’re in the US or Canada.

How Reprogramming Our Genes Can Extend Our Lives with George Church
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, and InsideTracker.All living things are programmed with a certain lifespan, which can be dramatically different from species to species. Humans now, in general, live twice as long as our ancestors, thanks to environmental changes and advances in medicine. But most of us spend the last years of our lives without the quality of life we really want. We’ve come to identify a slew of symptoms and chronic diseases as a natural part of aging, but do they really have to be?Today I’m excited to talk to Dr. George Church all about the latest science on reprogramming our genes to extend our healthspan and lifespan. Dr. George Church is a professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School, a founding member of the Wyss Institute, and director of PersonalGenomes.org, the world’s only open-access information on human genomic, environmental, and trait data. Dr. Church is known for pioneering the fields of personal genomics and synthetic biology. He developed the first methods for the first genome sequence and his team invented CRISPR for human stem cell genome editing and other synthetic biology technologies and applications—including new ways to create organs for transplantation, gene therapies for aging reversal, and gene drives to eliminate Lyme disease and malaria. Dr. Church is the director of IARPA & NIH BRAIN Projects and the National Institutes of Health Center for Excellence in Genomic Science.  He is the author of Regenesis.This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, and InsideTracker.Rupa Health is a place where Functional Medicine practitioners can access more than 2,000 specialty lab tests.

How Fructose Drives Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, And Chronic Disease
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Pendulum. The majority of foods on our market shelves contain insane amounts of added sugar. One of the most problematic of these sugars is fructose, which raises our levels of uric acid, a central player in the metabolic mayhem affecting so many of us. This doesn’t mean all foods containing fructose are bad. Like all parts of health and nutrition, there are nuances we need to consider to create optimal health. In today’s episode, I talk with Drs. David Perlmutter, Casey Means, and Richard Johnson about how fructose and uric acid impact our physiology, why measuring uric acid levels is so important, and how fructose impacts our energy.  Dr. David Perlmutter is a board-certified neurologist and five-time New York Times bestselling author. He serves on the board of directors and is a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He is the author of Grain Brain among others, and his new book, Drop Acid, was just released. Dr. Perlmutter received his MD from the University of Miami School of Medicine, where he was awarded the Leonard G. Rowntree Research Award. Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer, and cofounder of metabolic health company Levels, an associate editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a guest lecturer at Stanford University. Her mission is to maximize human potential and reverse the epidemic of preventable chronic disease by empowering individuals with tools that can facilitate a deep understanding of our bodies and inform personalized and sustainable dietary and lifestyle choices. Dr. Richard Johnson is a professor of medicine at the University of Colorado in Denver and has been a practicing physician and clinical scientist for over 25 years. He is internationally recognized for his seminal work on the role of sugar, and its component fructose, in obesity and diabetes. His work has also suggested a fundamental role for uric acid (which is generated during fructose metabolism) in metabolic syndrome. He previously authored The Sugar Fix with Timothy Gower in 2008, and The Fat Switch in 2012. His new book, Nature Wants Us to Be Fat, was just released. This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Pendulum. Rupa Health is a place where Functional Medicine practitioners can access more than 2,000 specialty lab tests.
