We live in a time with more money, medical interventions, and knowledge than ever before—so why are we getting sicker? While this might seem depressing, there are actually many exciting discoveries changing the future of wellness, like our increased understanding of the microbiome and how it interacts with the brain. This dynamic has profound implications for mental health, reducing the risk of neurodegenerative diseases, and even supporting positive behavior in our children. I’m excited to talk to board-certified internal medicine physician, bestselling author, and published researcher Dr. Austin Perlmutter about all this and more on this episode of the podcast. 

We explore:

Why don’t we try to prevent brain dysfunction the same way we do cardiovascular disease and other illnesses?

Neuroinflammation and how to modulate it to improve mood, behavior, and neurodegenerative diseases

Having an “adult in the room” versus our lizard brain

The inundation of Big Food and Big Pharma marketing we’re up against

Psychobiotics: The future of probiotics for brain health 

I know you’ll love this conversation as much as I did. I hope you’ll tune in wherever you listen to podcasts!
