The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD and Dr. Mark Hyman

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!

    What brands of EVOO do people recommend?

    The idea of putting olive oil on meat appeals to me; I had heard this concept before, thanks for the reminder. I will have to purchase this book.

    Congrats on your stress test results!!!

        Wonderful. I would appreciate so much if you answer 2 questions for me….
        I still have a doubt about the nuts and the antinutrients…..should be a person who is trying to lose weight…with insuline resistance, fatty liver and a TSH 3.6 have nuts?
        And… I have found that in some people eating eggs does not allow them to get ride of candida…and once they quit eggs, they do not have the sintomes anymore. I heard that eggs have no sugar but they have stem cells which when meet with candida, empowers it… I would appreciate so much to know your opinion on these subjects.

    Hello Dr. Perlmutter, are you familiar with Dr. Marty Hinz’s amino acid therapy for PD? Would you please give me your opinion on this therapy? I would appreciate it very much.

      I would love to know this as well. Cannot find anything on this subject on Dr. Perlmutter’s or Dr. Terry Wahl’s sites. Looking into traveling a distance and staying for awhile to attempt this therapy so it is important to me to research with those I trust. Those with chronic health issues have to spend wisely.

    My questions revolves around carbs. So much is mentioned regarding how evil carbs are and if you go on the higher fat diet, you need to also be on a low carb diet. Carbs are not the problem. Bad carbs are the problem. I think more clarity needs to be shown regarding the difference between good and bad carbs. Are we talking about soda and white rice, or are we talking about health promoting sweet potatoes and brown rice?

    • David Perlmutter

      A Grain Brain lifestyle is certainly not carb-free, though it could be should someone choose that. For most individuals, the protocol calls for 60-80g/day of carbs, in the “good” forms similar to what you identify above.

    Thank you.
