  • Yes – A Lack of Sleep Means Eating More, A Lot More!

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. In today’s video, Dr. Austin Perlmutter takes a look at a recent study that sought to understand the impact of lack of (restorative) sleep on our decision-making. In particular, how this lack of sleep can impact our decision-making as it relates to our food choices. If you’ve read Brain Wash, then you likely know where this is heading, but let’s take a look at the research.

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Dr. Daniel Amen

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Why do we not generally discuss the fact that there is an epidemic of mental illness in our society? Or that our lifestyle choices may have an impact on our risk for these conditions (like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and others)? Though incidence of these conditions is skyrocketing, for the past four decades standard treatment hasn’t much changed, and success rates in treating them have barely improved, either. Meanwhile, the stigma of the “mental illness” label―damaging and devastating on its own―can often prevent sufferers from getting the help they need. My good friend Dr. Daniel Amen is on the forefront of a new movement within medicine and related disciplines that aims to change all that. In The End of Mental Illness, Dr. Amen draws on the latest findings of neuroscience to challenge an Read More

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Jeffrey Smith

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Without a doubt, one of the most highly debated topics in health and wellness centers on the safety or risk associated with GMO foods. Today, Austin Perlmutter M.D. joins me to interview Jeffrey Smith, who has, for the past two decades, done his best to raise public awareness as to the possible health-related concerns of genetically modifying our foodstuffs. Today he shares some of his most recent revelations from his research into GMO products, as well as the latest information related to the herbicide glyphosate, which is the active ingredient in the commercial product Roundup. There’s a lot of information here, but ultimately it is extremely valuable. The post The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Jeffrey Smith appeared first on David Perlmutter M.D..

  • Sleep and Food Connected: How You Eat Affects How You Sleep

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. One of the central themes in Brain Wash is regaining the ability to make good choices. Not a day goes by that we don’t see or hear about another new book telling us how a specific diet, or other lifestyle change, will likely bring about health.  As you might expect, I know many of these authors (and I’ve been honored to host many on The Empowering Neurologist) and, these days, almost all of these books are absolutely providing terrific information. Where the disconnect happens is between information and action, meaning it’s all well and good to read these books, but thereafter, choices have to be made to implement the material that has been learned. Our choices, especially those that involve planning for the future, are by and large mediated by an area of Read More

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Aaron Alexander

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Yes, what we eat, how well we sleep, and so many other lifestyle choices are really important for our overall health and disease resistance. But how we move, stand, sit and engage our world turns out to be an important health variable as well. Today we will speak with Aaron Alexander, author of the new book, The Align Method. Aaron, founder of Align Method™, is an accomplished manual therapist and movement coach with over 16 years of professional experience, whose clients range from A-list Hollywood celebrities to professional athletes and everyone in-between.

He’s a contributor to major media outlets ranging Read More

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Suzy Amis Cameron

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. The plant-based diet is gaining more and more attention these days, and with good reason. It’s clear that less reliance on animal derived food will have a positive environmental impact. In addition, there is compelling evidence that favoring a more plant-based diet may well provide significant health benefits. Our guest on this episode of The Empowering Neurologist is Suzy Amis Cameron. She is the author of a very important book, The OMD Plan, that advocates that at least one meal each day should be derived entirely from plant-based sources. Suzy is a noted environmental advocate, former actress and model, mom of five and new grandma of one. In addition to founding MUSE School with her sister, a topic we explore in some detail, she has founded a number of plant-based focused organizations, including Cameron Family Farms Read More

  • Unhack Your Brain – Eating Mindfully

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Today, we’re releasing the third and final video in our Unhack Your Brain miniseries. Did you know the food you eat can affect your decision-making? It’s true! It’s one of the central themes of Brain Wash, the idea that what we eat affects our choices, and not the other way around. And this extends beyond food. Unhealthy food choices can affect our sleeping habits, how we choose to interact with others, our ability to feel empathy…the list (and the science) goes on. We’ll explore this further in today’s third, and final, episode of Unhack Your Brain. Catch the whole series here.

  • Unhack Your Brain: Digital Detox

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. In the second episode of our Unhack Your Brain miniseries, Austin and I explore our modern relationship with technology and social media. Certainly, the technological advancements of the past two decades have impacted all our lives for the better, from giving us access to information to better connecting us with loved ones near and far. But at what cost? In today’s episode, we’ll explore how these technologies have adversely affected our brains and our interactions with others. But, more importantly, we’ll share with you the ways in which we’ve begun to try to take back control of our relationships with these tools. Catch up with the first episode of Unhack Your Brain now! Learn more tactics for controlling your relationship with your devices and discover Brain Wash today. The post Unhack Your Brain: Read More

  • Unhack Your Brain: Getting Back to Nature

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Today, we’re releasing the first video in a three part series about unhacking your brain. As you’ll discover in Brain Wash, getting back to nature is one of eight key ways we can work to break free of Disconnection Syndrome. It just makes sense that nature exposure would be good for the brain and the body, right? Well, not only does it sound logical but the science says it is so. Austin and I were impressed to discover the volume of scientific literature supporting this benefits of nature exposure, and that’s why we’ve made it a critical part of our Brain Wash program. In the first episode of Unhack Your Brain, we review some of this latest science on this, explore how time outside impacts the brain and decision making, and suggest ways Read More

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and James Clement

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Lifespan extension and healthspan extension are certainly topics that most of us want to learn more about. So, in this episode of The Empowering Neurologist we explore how regulating a particular metabolic switch through dietary and other lifestyle choices may help us increase our chances of living a longer, and disease-free, life. We have the great pleasure of spending time with James Clement, author of the brand new book The Switch. He describes how regulating a metabolic regulator in our physiology, mTOR, has important implications in terms of our ability to live a long and healthy life, and provides us with a specific game plan to get the very most from this exciting new science.
