Today on the Empowering Neurologist I interview my long-time friend and colleague Dr. Mark Hyman. Dr. Hyman is a practicing family physician, a nine-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, and an internationally recognized leader, speaker, educator, and advocate in his field. He is the Director the Clevland Clinic Center and serves as founder and medical director of The UltraWellness Center. Dr. Hyman is a regular medical contributor on many television shows including CBS This Morning, Today, Good Morning America, CNN, The View, and The Dr. Oz Show.
He works with individuals and organizations, as well as policy makers and influencers. He has testified before both the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine, and the Senate Working Group on Health Care Reform on Functional Medicine. He has consulted with the Surgeon General on diabetes prevention, and participated in the 2009 White House Forum on Prevention and Wellness. Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa nominated Dr. Hyman for the President’s Advisory Group on Prevention, Health Promotion, and Integrative and Public Health. In addition, Dr. Hyman has worked with President Clinton, presenting at the Clinton Foundation’s Health Matters, Achieving Wellness in Every Generation conference and the Clinton Global Initiative, as well as with the World Economic Forum on global health issues.
Today we focus on his new book, Eat Fat, Get Thin. It’s certainly a title that will challenge many, but you’ll find that there’s a huge body of science supporting what this dietary approach is all about. This is leading edge nutrition, so please enjoy!
