Today on The Empowering Neurologist, I spend some time with my long-time friend and colleague, Dr. Leo Galland. Dr. Galland is one of the true pioneers in functional medicine, who has dedicated his professional life to practicing medicine in a way that utilizes the latest scientific advances coupled with the most profound insights of ancient healing systems. Thus, he is able to give his patients the best tools to preserve health, increase longevity and speed recovery from illness.
Dr. Galland received his education and medical training at Harvard and NYU. Regularly chosen by New York magazine as one of the best doctors in New York, as well as listed in America’s Top Doctors, he has appeared on Good Morning America and on CNN, Fox News, and PBS. And now we have the honor of having his wisdom right here on our program.
Today’s discussion focuses on how dietary choices influence metabolism and even appetite. We’ll be talking about the role of the hormone leptin and how it influences appetite, as well as how insulin function is affected by our food choices.
I’m sure you’ll enjoy this interview! Be sure to also stay tuned for more information about Dr. Galland’s upcoming book, The Allergy Solution.
