For too long we have been looking at stress in a completely wrong way. In fact a tremendous wealth of research is pointing to a completely revolutionary way to manage stress. And if you wan to change your life, you can’t do anything with nutrition, exercise, or sleep without addressing stress in its true form. Join us as we speak about the anatomy of stress, how it affects every system in the body, and how you can structure your life around good stress.

In this episode, we sat down with our dear friend, Dan Buettner to speak about wellness, fearlessness, his new book and his revolutionary projects around the world. We discussed promotion of health, prevention of disease and his experience with regards to longevity in the Blue Zones and what he envisions for the world. His new book, the Blue Zones Kitchen is a fantastic collection of recipes straight from the longest living communities. We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did.
In this episode, we sat down with our friend and partner in science and clinical translation, Dr. Joel Kahn, a public health leader, a world renowned cardiologist and a true champion of preventive cardiology. He has authored many books and articles and is actively dispersing the message of hope for devastating diseases like heart disease, the number one cause of mortality in the US. He passionately lectures throughout the country about the health benefits of a plant-based diet, inspiring a new generation of thought leaders to think scientifically and critically about the body’s ability to heal itself through proper nutrition. In this conversation, we talk about new advances in heart health, longevity, and some controversial issues of the day.

We are so excited to present this episode! We had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. David Katz, a remarkable physician-scientist who has changed the paradigm of our understanding of chronic diseases. His biography is quite extensive and his list of accomplishments are long, and this section would look like a book if we listed them here. He is one of the most prominent science communicators of our times, a thought leader in preventive medicine and health promotion, and has authored multiple books, research articles and textbooks. His latest book, The Truth About Food, is an exceptional resource for those who want to get a deeper understanding of the role of nutrition and true health, and how good science that be differentiated from pseudoscience.

In this episode, we a had an amazing conversation with Dr. Mithu Storoni, the author of Stress-Proof. Mithu received her medical degree from the University Cambridge and has published papers across the fields of neuroscience, neurology and neuro-ophthalmology. She is a brilliant scientist trained in eye surgery, has a PhD in Neuro-ophthalmology, and was previously a Clinical Research Fellow at the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen Square, London where she studies pupillometry looking at the relationship between the pupillary response and stress! Mithu spent a few years trawling through all the scientific research she could find on stress before writing Stress-Proof, a science-based guide based on data from over 500 published studies. We hope you enjoy this conversation and will share it with loved ones who will benefit from her knowledge and experience.

In this episode we took on, what we consider, one of the most important challenges of our time - an attack on science, in this case specifically nutrition science, at a time when what we choose to eat can have profound effect on our health, environment and the health of the next generation. We hope you enjoy this episode and continue the conversation.

In this episode, we discuss Alzheimer’s disease, genetics, the myths around them, and our evidence-based plan for preserving brain health and preventing disease. We call it the NEURO plan. It’s a personalized, comprehensive plan that will give you the power to not only avoid catastrophic diseases like Dementia and stroke, but to continue to manifest the full capacity of your amazing brain at any age. You will quickly learn that our plan is not based on some gimmick or a vitamin regimen, but relies on behavioral models that have been shown to provide habit pathways that build brain capacity at any age. We hope you enjoy this episode!

Welcome to the second episode of the Brain Health and Beyond Podcast! Our guest for this episode is our dear friend, Adam Sud, who is an international speaker for awareness of mental health and addiction. In 2012, Adam’s life was completely out of control. He was struggling with multiple addictions, serious chronic diseases, and mental health disorders. His life nearly ended when he attempted suicide by drug overdose. He checked into rehab and with the help of his parents and by adopting a plant-based diet, he began a journey that led to a remarkable recovery. He is now a diabetes and food addiction coach for Mastering Diabetes (masteringdiabetes.org), which is a program that focuses on reversing insulin resistance using low fat, whole food, plant-based nutrition. He also works with Engine2 and Whole Foods Market’s Total Health Immersion Team. He is an amazing force behind the plant-based movement and has worked in recovery centers using plant-based nutrition as an adjunct tool for recovery and relapse prevention. He has also founded a non-profit that is dedicated to advancing research on diet and mental health/addiction. He firmly believes that the simplest of things, done consistently, can make the most profound change of your life and that self-love is the root of all recovery.
