With an ongoing pandemic that doesn’t abate, is it any wonder immune health is on everyone’s mind? As we adapt to these unprecedented times, the interest in supporting immunity has skyrocketed. So, I couldn’t wait to interview my dear friend and long-term colleague, Romilly Hodges. With her new book Immune Resilience just published, I’m thrilled to share Romilly’s exciting pearls on immune health on New Frontiers. You may know Rom from her time as Nutrition Programs Director at our clinic and her work on our Methylation Diet & Lifestyle program. Romilly is all that, and so much more: also a CNS, IFMCP, and vastly published author in several peer-reviewed journals.
Folks, I’m thrilled to be back once again with my friend and colleague, Dr. Tom Fabian, functional nutrition practitioner whose training originates in molecular biology of aging. Together with his training and experience as the clinical laboratory consultant for Diagnostic Solutions Lab, Dr. Fabian shares a wealth of practical applications for microbiome research in functional medicine and clinical settings. We also explore key microbial species for longevity and how to boost their levels, inflammaging of the microbiota, often-missed leaky gut clues on GI-MAP reports, the small intestine as a key site for immune tolerance, how microbiota influence epigenetics and much more. It’s truly exciting to learn from his extensive research expertise in the role of human microbiome and health, chronic disease and aging, so make sure you get ready to take notes and bookmark this page – you’ll want to come back for more! Thanks for listening, and leave us a review wherever you listen to New Frontiers! ~DrKF
Sleep – we spend a third of our lives doing it, we know it is a powerful longevity tools, yet we continue to skimp on it. I know from personal experience – improving my sleep after struggling for years was a total game-changer. And in this episode of New Frontiers, I’m joined by Dr. Sara Mednick, world-renowned sleep scientist, professor of psychology at the University of California, and director of the Sleep and Cognition Lab to discuss her exciting research findings and new lexicon for understanding stress.
Reversing biological age by just one year can save $38 trillion of public health funding. Read that again. $38 TRILLION. And by now, you probably know in my new Younger You book, I walk through exactly how to reverse your biological age by over three years through nutrition and lifestyle. But writing a book is not enough, and I’m really excited to bring an easy-to-follow digital program accessible from anywhere in the world. And I couldn’t have done it without Suggestic, the innovative health tech company powering the 3YY digital program. In this episode of New Frontiers, I share the ins and outs of this turnkey digital program with the potential to revolutionize personalized nutrition delivery and optimize health at scale.
Folks, I am just honored, thrilled, excited to be talking to my dear mentor and friend Dr. Jeff Bland on this episode of New Frontiers in Functional Medicine. Not only is Dr. Bland the father of functional medicine, but he’s also the founder of Big Bold Health, a company whose mission is to enhance immunity at the global level through rediscovery of ancient food crops and superfoods which support immuno-rejuvenation. Join me as I pick his brain on genetics, aging, SNPs, DNA repair, and senolytics, and find out why your genes are not a death certificate but rather a ‘uniqueness certificate’ that requires specific approaches. You won’t want to miss this in-depth conversation! Listen, learn, and if you would be so kind, leave a review on iTunes or wherever you hear my voice. Thank you! ~DrKF
Exactly a hundred years ago, in 1921, the ketogenic diet was developed, and yet we are still discovering its many benefits, including its positive effects on the epigenome. How fascinating is that? In this episode of New Frontiers, I’m thrilled to have renowned nutrigenomics researcher and fellow epigenetics aficionado Dr. Lucia Aronica interview one of the world’s top experts on the ketogenic diet – Dominic D’Agostino. Dom is also a neuroscientist, accomplished researcher, and associate professor of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of Florida.
Folks, if you’ve been following me for any time, you I am fascinated with reversing epigenetic aging. With such research rapidly evolving, there’s always something new to talk about and my guest today has become a friend and a regular on the New Frontiers podcast – Dr. Joseph Raffaele: renowned expert on telomere biology and age management medicine. Dr. Raffaele, who is board-certified in internal medicine, diplomat at the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine AND co-founder of PhysioAge Systems, joins me for the third time to talk about the latest in immunosenescence and aging. (You can find links to our previous conversations and related content in the shownotes.)
Living in a pandemic era filled with political, environmental, and social turmoil is tiring – downright exhausting. So is it any wonder the number of chronic fatigue cases has crept up to 1.5 million people in the US? In this episode of New Frontiers, guest host Dr. Patrick Hanaway talks with Alex Howard, the creator of the Therapeutic Coaching methodology and Founder of The Optimum Health Clinic, one of the world’s leading integrative clinics specializing in chronic fatigue syndrome.
Although lifespans are getting longer, most Americans spend the last 16 years of their lives managing multiple illnesses with various drugs. With most of our faculties compromised in those final years, quality of life is significantly reduced, and life is not as enjoyable as it could be. So is there anything we can do to expand our healthspan, not just our lifespan? My guest in this podcast, Dr. Jed Fahey, joins me to discuss the underappreciated, healthspan-promoting power of phytochemicals.
So many of us in functional medicine use urine organic acids as an assessment tool, yet we rarely pause to think how they are so intricately connected with the wider world of applied metabolomics. And we should because research shows that a broader view of metabolomics (i.e. not just your standard organic acid markers) results in a six-fold higher diagnosis rate compared to traditional assessment methods. Impressive, isn’t it? I’m thrilled to be joined by my dear friend and metabolomics expert Dr. Betsy Redmond in today’s podcast.
