    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Why are most Alzheimer’s patients women? It may come as a surprise to you, but women outnumber men when it comes to Alzheimer’s disease sufferers by a ratio of 2 to 1. Why Alzheimer’s affects women so adversely is unclear, but we do know there is a lot of science that’s beginning to make sense of this statistic. Moreover, now that we are gaining ground on understanding why the female brain is more susceptible to this devastating disease, it allows us to begin getting our arms around the idea that specific lifestyle changes may be very important as they relate to reducing a woman’s risk. In her new book, The XX Brain, my good friend, Dr. Lisa Mosconi, takes us to the leading edge of neuroscience research, revealing how differences between the male and female Read More

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, M.D., and Max Lugavere

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Clearly, one of the most important goals of the conversations we try to spark here is empowerment. This empowerment is especially valuable as it relates to brain health. I’m certain that many of you not only watched my previous interview with Max Lugavere, but also read his important book, Genius Foods. Max now has a new book, The Genius Life, that looks not only at food, but at a variety of other important lifestyle factors that very much add to our level of empowerment with the goal of keeping our brains healthy. Max, for reasons that you will see in this interview, is one of my favorite citizen scientists. His pursuit of the underlying causes and potential ways of reducing risk for brain degeneration is born out of his personal experience with his mother’s Read More

  • 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..

  • 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

  • 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. Hope you enjoy! The post The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and James Clement appeared first on David Perlmutter M.D.. Source

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD and Dr. Steven Masley

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. The popular Mediterranean diet has received lots of validation in mainstream scientific literature as being a healthful choice. This is a diet that focuses on the the Importance of a variety of vegetables, and protein from both plant and animal sources. It’s a diet that’s rich in healthful fat (typically locally sourced) and, importantly, a diet that’s going to provide lots and lots of healthful fiber, a nutrient that is sorely lacking in what is generally considered the standard American diet. My guest on the program today is Dr. Steven Masley, author of the new book, The Mediterranean Method. In the book, Dr. Masley explores why the Mediterranean diet is such a good choice. Further, he identifies from this diet hallmark components that are in fact associated with health, and therefore can be Read More

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD and Petteri Lahtela

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Last February, my wife and I were attending a health-related symposium and noted that many of the speakers were wearing an OURA ring. We learned that the OURA ring was one of the latest entries in the field of wearable technology. What was most intriguing for us was how many of our friends described the insights they were gaining in terms of the length and quality of their sleep. So we decided to buy a couple of these and learn, firsthand, what all the excitement was about. Our level of understanding of not only our day-to-day activities, but, perhaps more importantly, the characteristics of our sleep experience, was not only revealing but powerfully empowering. Understanding the influence of our day-to-day lifestyle choices on the quality of our sleep is of incalculable value. Restorative Read More

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Dr. Kelly Brogan

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. This episode of The Empowering Neurologist reviews the new book, Own Your Self by Dr. Kelly Brogan. Dr. Brogan is a holistic health psychiatrist, author of the New York Times bestselling book, A Mind of Your Own, and the children’s book, A Time for Rain, and is co-editor of the landmark textbook, Integrative Therapies for Depression. She completed her psychiatric training and fellowship at NYU Medical Center after graduating from Cornell University Medical College and has a B.S. from M.I.T. in Systems Neuroscience. She is board-certified in psychiatry, psychosomatic medicine, and integrative holistic medicine and is specialized in a root-cause resolution approach to psychiatric syndromes and symptoms. She is a certified KRI Kundalini Yoga teacher and a mother of two. What we explore today runs very much counter to how mood disorders, like depression and anxiety, are looked upon in America. Though we are often Read More

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Prof. Tim Noakes

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. Prof. Tim Noakes is one of my all-time heroes. As many of you may know, Prof. Noakes, a South African physician, was brought before a professional council for his advocacy of a lower carbohydrate diet. Ultimately he was fully exonerated, defending his position with reference to recommending higher fat consumption while reducing carbohydrates, as documented in the movie The Magic Pill, which focuses not only on the importance of reducing refined carbohydrates for weight loss, but also how diets higher in these carbohydrates are threatening to our health and pave the way for disease. I will say that our interview explore other areas of his career which are certainly quite interesting, including his experiences with a swimmer in both the Arctic and Antarctic. What an enjoyable interview this is. The post The Empowering Read More
