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

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 mornings. I hope you'll join me.

View the Show Notes From This Episode Get Free Weekly Health Tips from Dr. Hyman Sign Up for Dr. Hyman’s Weekly Longevity Journal Food has become a more complex part of our lives than ever before. Much of what we think is food is actually many ingredients disguised as food, with entirely different, often negative impacts on the human body. Sadly, this is a greater problem here in the US than in other parts of the world, thanks to the food industry, corrupt intentions, and broken policies. Today, I talk about all this and more with my guest Jason Karp, whose personal experience of nearly going blind due to a toxic lifestyle led him to discover a different way; he made it his mission to get “back to human.” In this episode, we discuss: Jason’s personal health journey and why that has prompted him to take on the campaign against Kellogg’s (7:53) The unhealthy state of America’s food industry (22:42) How Kellogg’s has one cereal formulation for Canada and another for the US that is full of chemicals (26:07) The correlation between food dyes and ADHD, and the failure of Kellogg's pledge (29:04) The political aspect of food regulation and dangers of unregulated food additives (32:55) Why we are in a state of metacrisis and what that means for our future (37:18) The bidirectional relationship between food and mental health (46:04) The financial burden of healthcare on the US government due to unhealthy diets (53:52) Supporting the Kellogg's Initiative: Sign the Petition (1:06:03) We have a lot to do to shift our food system and eliminate harmful ingredients in the US, but there are ways to enact positive change starting today. We can all support a cleaner food industry and better health by voting with our dollar, purchasing real food, and getting involved in policy policy changes.

While calories may be one piece of the puzzle, weight is so much more nuanced than that including factors such as mother’s metabolic health during pregnancy, chemicals called obesogens, inflammation, hormones, and more. In this episode, Dr. Hyman speaks with Dr. Elizabeth Boham, Calley Means, and Dr. Casey Means about the obesity crisis, how we got here, and what we can do about it.

View the Show Notes From This Episode Get Free Weekly Health Tips from Dr. Hyman Sign Up for Dr. Hyman’s Weekly Longevity Journal Like most things in life, when it comes to optimizing metabolic health, a nuanced perspective can help. Rather than viewing it as a black-and-white issue, we can take into consideration the big-picture social context we’re facing that encourages ultra-processed foods, obesity, and lifelong medication as well as the micro-level of what people are experiencing as individuals and understanding how to help them when all else fails. Today I’m thrilled to sit down with Dr. Tyna Moore and Calley Means for a grounded discussion that explores both sides of the spectrum, and everything in between.  In this episode, we discuss: The controversial discussion of GLP-1 agonists like Ozempic, weighing the pros and cons of these new drugs in treating obesity and metabolic crises (3:34) Challenging the notion of treating obesity with drugs like Ozempic (10:35) An unsettling revelation about the push for using Ozempic in children (12:04) Digging deeper into GLP-1 research and some of the benefits (32:51) Why are children being born metabolically challenged? (41:11) Dr. Moore’s approach to using peptides with her patients and for her own crippling pain, and what they’ve seen (45:19) How our current healthcare system lacks policies and support for behavior change (1:27) While there are always differing views, we know for sure that our food and drug policies aren’t serving the best interests of creating sustainable, empowered health for the masses. I hope you’ll tune in to hear more from this comprehensive and lively discussion.  This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Pendulum, ARMRA Colostrum, and One Skin.
