A leading functional medicine practitioner, Will Cole, D.C., IFMCP, is an expert when it comes to analyzing the underlying factors of chronic disease. In his practice, he customizes health programs for thyroid issues, autoimmune conditions, hormonal dysfunctions, digestive disorders, and brain problems. And with this impressive resume, it’s no surprise he was named one of the top 50 functional-medicine and integrative doctors in the nation. When Founder and Co-CEO, Jason Wachob, sat down with Cole on this episode of the mindbodygreen podcast, he was so excited to hear details about his upcoming book, The Inflammation Spectrum. In this book, Cole educates people on how they differ in terms of an inflammatory response, as well as urges us to discover how our bodies respond to certain lifestyle practices, both positively and negatively.Another component Cole mentions is the fact that there are certain markers of inflammation that might look “normal” to the average eye, when really these signs can be crucial for diagnosing and treating certain inflammatory conditions. According to Cole, there’s quite a few ways to determine whether you’re experiencing inflammation you might not have thought about, until now. Whether you check the fullness of your eyebrows in the mirror, track your sleep habits, or mitigate your stress levels, you’ll be one step closer to pinpointing what’s causing your inflammatory response. And even if you don’t think you experience high inflammation, it may be worth your while to check in on these four commonly overlooked signs. You might be experiencing high inflammation levels without even knowing it! To contact the mindbodygreen team comments, questions, or speaker ideas, please email podcast@mindbodygreen.com.

When it comes to working with her patients, Bindiya Gandhi, M.D. has a goal of getting to the root cause of certain issues and making patients feel healthy in the most natural way possible. As a family medicine physician with a passion for functional medicine, Gandhi couples her traditional education and training with a nutritional medicine lens, making her a unique, cutting-edge professional in the medical field. Gandhi offers some great tips and advice (you’ll seriously want to listen to this episode of the podcast with a notebook and pen in hand), on a variety of topics we can approach with a “food is medicine” mentality, ranging from balancing hormones, taming inflammation, and fertility. Another topic she covers as she chats with Olessa Pindak, mindbodygreen's Chief Content Officer, is how she advises her patients to optimize their gut health. Gut health should be a priority, Gandhi states, because of its ability to affect so many other processes in our bodies. When our gut health becomes compromised, it can lead to chronic issues like IBS, SIBO, and Chron’s disease, and can even have an effect on our brain health. “The gut is so important. You want to diversify it and keep it healthy,” she says. “If you have an imbalance of good bacteria,” Gandhi says. “That's going to link to heart disease later on in life, or Alzheimer's, or other medical conditions, or autoimmune conditions. So to me, gut health is so important. All medical problems start in the gut.” The good thing is, we can take control of our gut health (and our overall health, for that matter!) by eating a diverse diet and making sure we get our fill of probiotics and prebiotics. Food really is medicine, take it from Gandhi, herself.To contact the mindbodygreen team with comments, questions, or speaker ideas, please email podcast@mindbodygreen.com.

These days, it’s not uncommon for people to strive to be more proactive about their health and prevent diseases before even the preliminary signs of an illness arise. Molly Maloof, M.D., a personalized medicine physician and one of our speakers at this year’s revitalize event, works with the top Silicon Valley investors and executives on how to seek empowerment and prescribe health in all aspects of life—not just for the body, but for the mind and community around us.On this episode of the mindbodygreen podcast, Jason Wachob, founder and co-CEO of mindbodygreen, sat down with Maloof to chat about how we can truly optimize our health, rather than trying to seek quick fixes whenever we’re feeling not-so-great. After discussing whether psychedelics can have a role in medicine, as well as how she sees the future of the industry shifting, it's clear that Maloof has an unparalleled view on how we can take control of our wellbeing.One way she mentions we can ensure a healthy body and mind is by biohacking safely and effectively. “Biohacking is an opportunity to go beyond sickness billing and waiting to be broken and learning how to identify the earliest markers of disease,” she says. “It’s bringing tools that have been used in mainstream medicine but applying them to optimize health.” In this episode of the podcast, you'll hear all about Maloof's stance on which wellness practices we should maintain and add to our lives to maximize health. Rather than tackling problems as they arise, Maloof suggests that safe biohacks are proactive ways to ensure healthy living.

Anna Yusim, M.D., works with many patients who come to her with the full spectrum of human issues, but one of the most common she sees is existential anxiety, a paralyzing fear for people who face it in their everyday lives. An award-winning psychiatrist, Yusim couples her medical practice with spiritual principles in order to treat this anxiety, which is a combination that truly promotes holistic healing for our minds, bodies, and souls. Olessa Pindak, mindbodygreen's CCO, sat down with Yusim on this week’s episode of the podcast to chat with her about the specific tools she utilizes during a psychotherapy session. She affirms that feeling anxious about our human existence is completely normal. Her first step to coping is to recognize that every human being has this same fear at some point in their lives (sometimes at many points in their lives, in fact), and that it’s a completely valid fear to have. Yusim is no stranger to supplements, and she believes that they can be helpful tools to cope with existential anxiety, especially if you’re living with any vitamin deficiencies already. “Sometimes, anxiety comes from low energy. People feel like something's off, and they feel so much anxiety because they don't feel like themselves,” she says. Even if you wouldn’t normally consider yourself to be especially spiritual, you’ll find that Yusim’s methods to cope with existential anxiety can help stress and uncertainty melt away. Just make sure to remember: Part of being human is pondering our mortality and the reasons why we're here.To contact the mindbodygreen team with comments, questions, or speaker ideas, please email podcast@mindbodygreen.com.

If there’s one thing journalist and teacher, Esther Wojcicki, knows, it’s how to empower children. She has raised some pretty successful daughters—Susan, Anne, and Janet—who have grown up to become the CEO of YouTube, the co-founder and CEO of 23andMe, and the assistant professor at the UCSF with a Ph.D. and master’s in public health, respectively (Janet also spoke at our revitalize event in 2015!). Not only has Wojcicki learned the importance of empowerment in raising her own family, but she makes it a point to empower the children she teaches in school. A firm believer in making mistakes, Wojcicki knows how to create uplifting environments where kids can flourish and take healthy risks. When I sat down with Wojcicki on this week’s episode of the podcast, we chatted about her book, How To Raise Successful People, as well as the advice she would give to parents who want to empower their own children. Her instruction was simple, yet has remained with me since: treat your kids like adults. This episode is sponsored by Honest Tea.

When Diana Rodgers, R.D., found out that she had celiac disease at 26, all of her digestion issues during childhood finally made sense. Growing up, she was underweight, frequently sick, and struggled with blood sugar related issues.These symptoms seemed to be a result of her gluten intolerance, but even when she incorporated gluten-free alternatives into her diet, she still found herself unsatisfied and, oftentimes, ravenous. It was only when she starting incorporating more fat (think raw milk and butter) that she started to see real progress in her digestion. Even further into her journey with different diets, it wasn't until she came across Robb Wolf's The Paleo Solutionthat she finally found the golden ticket for her eating lifestyle: real foods, less processed carbs.Her one takeaway after her own experience and completing her nutrition degree?

According to Alyssa Dweck, M.D., enhancing women’s quality of life as they age makes up a significant portion of her practice. Although she works with women in all stages of life—she lectures various Westchester public schools in her spare time and educates students about important gynecological issues—she places emphasis on the relationship between the aging process and gynecological health at a cellular level. What most people might not know, is that aging happens at the cellular level due in part to a lack of something called NAD in the body. NAD, at its core, is a substance that every cell in our body uses to turn food into energy, and it decreases as we age. It also decreases due to many other life stressors—being postpartum, excessive alcohol, over-eating, and getting too much sun exposure, to name a few. That said, it’s in every woman's best interest (no matter her age) to become well-versed in all things NAD and start taking the necessary steps to maintain levels of this coenzyme. After chatting with Dweck, we learned that there are actually a variety of ways we can maintain NAD as we age: In addition to taking steps to combat stress, wearing sunscreen, eating well, and leading an overall healthy lifestyle, one of the most efficient ways to boost NAD is to start popping a vitamin B3 supplement on the regular. But, it turns out, not all B3 is created equally. In this bonus episode, we talk about her three favorites. No surprise, Dweck frequently recommends this supplement to her patients (no need for a prescription, as this vitamin is sold over-the-counter), and those patients report back with glowing reviews, including significantly more energy. But, of course, we have to know: Does she take it herself? “I sure do,” the OB/GYN quips.Consider us really, really intrigued.

Deepak Chopra, M.D., is one of the most renowned spiritual teachers of our time. The author of more than 80 books, including 25 New York Times bestsellers, Deepak's groundbreaking work on metaphysics and the mind-body connection has touched millions of lives.At this year's revitalize event, Deepak joined me on the main stage to discuss consciousness and its role in longevity. You could hear a pin drop as the crowd listened attentively to his nuanced take on some of life's biggest questions. One topic that kept surfacing was this idea of "waking up," which Deepak writes about extensively in his upcoming book, Metahuman: Unleashing Your Infinite Potential.There are many things keeping us from true awakening, stuck in a state that Deepak describes as "a lucid dream in a vivid now," and the rise of social media is a big one. From his perspective, social platforms actually often encourage us to focus on the self—and in the process only make us feel more separate from one another. They take us away from our shared humanity and cause a lot of suffering, self-loathing, and jealousy in the process.Waking up to our shared experience is the key to freedom, joy, and a life of possibility. Over the course of the 30-minute interview, Deepak also names the one higher purpose we all share, says what's wrong with today's wellness world, and explains how anxiety is a modified form of consciousness. Tune in for more thought-provoking—and sometimes mind-blowing—insights from the spiritual leader and latest recipient of mindbodygreen's annual Lifetime Achievement Award.This podcast episode is a special recording from our sixth annual revitalize event, which was held in Dove Mountain, Arizona, in June.

As a reproductive psychiatrist, Alexandra Sacks, M.D., helps people navigate the emotional toll of pregnancy and parenthood.A lot of her work is normalizing the ups and downs of motherhood. In the age of highly curated Instagram posts, Sacks breaks down the myth that being a parent is all joy all the time. She helps patients differentiate between the emotions that are to be expected with new momhood—ambivalence, isolation, and frustration—and more serious conditions like postpartum depression. She likes to use the phrase "matrescence" to describe this complicated time, which can mirror the awkwardness and discomfort of adolescence.Sacks lectures at major corporations on attitudes around maternity and paternity leave, and her work has appeared in the New York Times, Time, and on NPR. She also hosts a weekly Motherhood Sessions podcast, where she has honest conversations with new moms to learn about their experience and her new book What No One Tells Youhas been dubbed "the new essential book for soon-to-be-parents" by Vogue.This podcast episode explores the intersection of feminism and medicine. In it, Sacks walks us through how to prioritize mental health before, during, and after birth; how to maintain quality bonding and attachment with your kids as a working parent; and so much more. If you're not expecting any time soon, Sacks also has sage advice on simple ways to support the new parents in your life.

Today's podcast episode is a special recording from our sixth annual revitalize event, which was held in Dove Mountain, Arizona, in June. The insights we learned on the main stage this year were too good not to share, so we're broadcasting them on the podcast over the next few weeks. Today, we'll hear four perspectives on the role of psychedelic drugs in today's wellness world.From the decriminalization of psilocybin in Oakland and Denver to the rise in ayahuasca ceremonies around the world, it feels like psychedelic drugs previously taken in hushed settings are now gaining mainstream appeal. So much so that the rate of use is quickly outpacing the research on how these substances actually affect the body.At this year's revitalize event, we invited four health experts to give their take on what exactly this means. What role, if any, should drugs like THC, MDMA, LSD, ayahuasca, and psilocybin play in wellness? Who should be taking them, and how can they do so safely? The panel covered massive questions like these, and, needless to say, not everybody agreed on the answers. And that included me! I jumped into the debate (a revitalize first) to say that after seeing too many friends have too many close calls, I don't believe they have a place in wellness. Tune in to the full podcast episode to dive deeper into this dialogue on when psychedelics expand consciousness—and when they do more harm than good.To contact Colleen or Jason with comments, questions, or speaker ideas, please email podcast@mindbodygreen.com.
