  • 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

    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

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD and Dr. Anna Cabeca

    Dr. Anna Cabeca has written a new book, The Hormone Fix, that focuses on the important role of diet and other lifestyle issues in terms of gaining hormone balance. She especially focuses on menopause and leveraging the fundamental relationship between a ketogenic diet and hormone function in what she calls the “keto-green way.” This is a unique feature of her new book that takes into account the importance of alkalinity for feeling well while engaged in a ketogenic program. Dr. Cabeca is a very special individual whom I deeply admire and respect. Please enjoy this interview, and be sure to let me know your thoughts below. If you want to learn more about Dr. Cabeca’s book, certainly check it out at the link above, but you can also explore Dr. Cabeca’s Breeze Through Menopause 10-Day Masterclass, which is a completely free way to learn about a keto-green lifestyle, and how it can heal the Read More

    Brain Body Diet is the newest book written by New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Sara Gottfried. Dr. Gottfried writes about the uniqueness of the female brain as it relates to physical body issues, such as weight loss, as well as psychological issues like anxiety, happiness, and mindfulness. It’s a deep dive into a vast array of lifestyle opportunities that can absolutely rewrite a woman’s health destiny. Brain Body Diet is an incredibly empowering work and I can assure you that you will find this interview to be very meaningful. I am honored that I have been given the opportunity to write the foreword for Dr. Gottfried‘s new book as well as permission to reprint it below. Take a read, and then enjoy today’s discussion. One of the most exciting developments in the area of health and wellness over the past decade has been the recognition that gaining an understanding of a person’s uniqueness opens the door Read More

  • The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Dr. James DiNicolantonio

    Today we are going to review a new book, The Longevity Solution, written by Dr. James DiNicolantonio and Dr. Jason Fung. Much about this book can be learned from its subtitle: “Rediscovering Centuries Old Secrets to a Healthy, Long Life.” The point being that much of what this book describes was known by our ancestors, and it’s our job to unlearn what we’ve come to know about aging, and relearn this crucial ancient wisdom. This fascinating book does a deep dive into the mechanisms that are involved in aging and then takes up some very interesting topics that are currently a part of our day-to-day discussions relating to aging, including the notion of fasting, the importance of understanding health implications of foods like like tea, red wine, and coffee, the controversial ideas of consuming dietary salt, why magnesium matters, what makes for a healthy versus unhealthy fat, and even explores Blue Zones, Read More
