From reduced inflammation to improved fat-burning mitochondrial function to a changed microbiome, the evidence is there.

Leading pediatric neurologist in the space, Jong Rho, MD, came by to discuss the details with me.

Hello there, 

The presidential election is finally behind us.

Hopefully the bickering and negative ads will go with it.

It was a great relief to have Dr. Perlmutter come on the podcast to teach ways to balance gut bacteria with real food.

He also shared tips on how to optimize brain and blood sugar health with high-fat diets and exercise.

And although the topic of the election did come up, it was in the context of being mindful and grateful.

Watch to learn more.
