Today’s interview is with Dr. John Douillard. He’s the author of a new book entitled Eat Wheat: A Scientific and Clinically-Proven Approach to Safely Bringing Wheat and Dairy Back into Your Diet.
I’m sure many of you are a bit surprised that we would be exploring a book with such a compelling title, but I think it’s so important and valuable to look at various viewpoints through meaningful discussion.
Eat Wheat is a very well-researched book and in it, Dr. Douillard makes some very good points. Clearly, as you will see in the interview, we do not necessarily see eye-to-eye on a number of points. Nonetheless, I think you’ll find our conversation very stimulating. Continue reading
One of the central tenets of my work focuses on the importance of eating good food. When we talk about what constitutes good food choices, please realize that this goes well beyond simply the type of food, but also encompasses quality.
My guest on the program today is Larry Olmsted. He’s the author of the new book Real Food, Fake Food. The reason I asked him to appear on the program today is that his new book is extremely revealing in terms of just how deep and pervasive food fraud is in America.
For instance, he reveals that most of the olive oil sold in America is actually fake. He also reveals a study showing that 100% of sushi restaurants in New York City that were screened were serving fish that was not the type advertised. He goes on to describe the fraud that is pervasive in cheese and meat products here in America. Continue reading
Today’s interview on The Empowering Neurologist is with Josh Perry. Josh is a highly competitive BMX athlete who has a very compelling story to tell. Continue reading
Dr. Anna Cabeca is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology. Her work goes well beyond standard practice as she embraces the importance of lifestyle choices applied to the needs of the patient, insofar as creating more meaningful therapeutic programs than drug therapy alone. It’s a very interesting interview that really answers a lot of questions related to women’s health issues, especially in areas like hormone replacement therapy and events occurring before, during, and after menopause. Enjoy.

Alzheimer’s disease represents the effects of inflammation on the brain. By now, you are all aware of the fundamental role of our gut bacteria in terms of regulating this process of inflammation in the human body.
Today’s episode of The Empowering Neurologist features my interview with Dr. Molly Fox, a biological anthropologist at UCLA. Her work has connected some important concepts that relate risk of Alzheimer’s disease (using research in various countries), to measurable differences in gut bacteria diversity. It’s a fascinating interview with a very gifted and dedicated scientist.

I recently had the opportunity to visit Australia to spend five days with other researchers and clinicians teaching a group of very forward-thinking healthcare providers. While there, my wife and I had the great fortune of being able to reconnect with our friend Pete Evans and his lovely wife.
It’s clear that the prevalence of autoimmune conditions is on the rise. Far and away, the most common autoimmune condition in America is directed against the thyroid gland, autoimmune thyroiditis. Like all autoimmune conditions, autoimmune thyroiditis is far more common in women, but for a reason that remains unclear. Nonetheless, it is clear that environmental issues, or lifestyle choices, seem to be playing a very important role in causing an imbalance within the immune system, paving the way for thyroid problems.
In today’s program, I have the great honor of interviewing Dr. Amy Myers. Dr. Myers is very much a pioneer in getting out the information related to how lifestyle choices affect the immune system, and is very candid about her own personal experience with thyroid disease.
Her new book is certainly worth reading, as it is filled with not only great information, but information upon which you can act to achieve more balance in immune function. I think you’re going to enjoy this interview.
Dr. Michael Callahan is CEO and co-founder of the Zika Foundation. He is a highly respected “physician scientist”, who is board-certified in internal medicine, infectious disease, tropical medicine and mass casualty care, and is on both the clinical and research faculty at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Callahan has clinical appointments globally, including in Thailand, Indonesia, Panama, and Nigeria. From 2005-2012, Dr. Callahan established Prophecy, the first rapid deployment clinical research capability for catastrophic infectious diseases outbreaks, such as Ebola.
Who knew that our lifestyle choices play such an important role in balancing the immune system?
On today’s program, I chat with Dr. Susan Blum, founder of the HealMyGut program and author of the wonderful book The Immune System Recovery Plan, which really zeroes in on this critical concept, to understand how the choices you make can dictate your immune health.
