The Functional Medicine Approach to Heart Disease
Play • 51 min

We often think of aging as synonymous with decline. We believe that having memory loss, becoming slow and less agile, experiencing joint pain and stiffness, increasing diseases, and need for medications are all viewed as ‘normal’ as we age. The truth is, becoming overweight, sick, and slow are NOT inevitable. 

We need to reframe how we view aging. The current theory that aging is just a slow and painful decline until we die is outdated and archaic. Currently, our healthspans do not equal our lifespans. Your healthspan is how well you live, your lifespan is how long you live. So while it’s true that human bodies cannot live forever, there are proven scientific methods to extend our healthspan, and that’s really what matters.

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, we are sharing episode 2 from our 8-part docu-series, the Longevity Roadmap, hosted by Dr. Mark Hyman.

In the Longevity Roadmap, you’ll learn all about the prevalent diseases of aging that decrease healthspan, how the conventional approach to these conditions is backwards, how to identify and treat the root cause of aging using the Functional Medicine approach, and more importantly, how to improve your healthspan to live a long, vibrant life.

In Episode 2, we’ll discuss the biggest killer of our time: cardiovascular disease. There is so much misinformation out there about what causes cardiovascular disease. We’ll talk about innovative testing and recommendations around prevention. 


We’ll also cover: 

-The misconceptions around heart disease.

-How to identify the root cause of heart disease. 

-The best ways to protect and support your heart. 


This 8-part docu-series, explores the Functional Medicine approach to heart disease, cancer, balancing hormones, and brain health, how to eat for longevity, and innovative therapies that have been shown to increase healthspan. Join Dr. Hyman and other experts and doctors at The UltraWellness Center to learn how to create optimal health and Become Young at Any Age.

Taking a deeper look at my level of awareness led me to study Buddhism in college and though I changed course to pursue a career in medicine, spiritual growth has always remained a passion for me.

Best and Worst Foods for Alzheimer’s Disease | Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai
Eating fast food can be traumatic for the brain. In turn, the toxicity can increase the chance that you may develop Alzheimer’s disease. On this episode of The Exam Room™, Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to explain why foods loaded with fat, sugar and salt can send brain cells into a frenzy! These are the very foods that are staples of the standard American diet! You will also learn the enormous number of calories the brain burns every day and how much better it can function by eating a healthy diet that contains plenty of whole fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. Eating these foods every day can also dramatically reduce the odds that you will become one of the millions of Americans who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

Tame Your Dragons, Train Your Brain and Take Back Your Happiness – Dr. Daniel Amen with Dave Asprey : 798
This episode of Bulletproof Radio goes deep into the dragon psyche. No, not “Game of Thrones,” but specifically our inner dragons.  “A dragon is an issue you're dealing with, that your brain is listening to, but it's not helping you,” says brain expert Dr. Daniel Amen. These dragons are the ones that “breathe fire on our emotional brain,” like anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness and more (you can find out what yours are at As a physician, double board-certified psychiatrist, professor, and author of 30 books, Dr. Amen has a lot to share about taming the beasts that beset us.   In his newest book “Your Brain is Always Listening: Tame the Hidden Dragons that Control Your Happiness, Habits and Hang-ups,” he talks about those dragon origin stories, their triggers, your reactions and how to tame them. He has a lot of tips for how we can step outside of our mind to distance ourselves from the dragon’s fire, like tuning into your pleasure centers, and how to guide your mind to look for what’s right rather than what’s wrong. “It's like a little treasure hunt,” Dr. Amen says. “And I look for even the micro moments. What are the smallest things that happened today that just made me happy? And it sets your dreams up to be more positive. These little habits are so helpful if you can make them part of your everyday life. You literally can train your brain. And when you do, your life is happier.” We talk about the ways past physical and emotional trauma may impact the way we heal, how our dragons are always interacting with other people’s dragons, how this is all affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and much more.  Dr. Amen gives practical tools you can use to stop feeling sad, mad, nervous or out of control and start being happier, calmer, and more in control of your own destiny.  Enjoy!

Could knowing your DNA or genetics optimize your exercise programming? I’m a fan of course.

Ep. 9: Dr. Reshma Shah - Food and Family
Last week, we spoke with registered dietitian and author, Brenda Davis, about her latest work called, Nourish: The Definitive Plant-Based Nutrition Guide for Families--With Tips & Recipes for Bringing Health, Joy, & Connection to Your Dinner Table. This week, we continue with part two of this important topic with co-author, Dr. Reshma Shah. Dr. Shah is a board-certified pediatrician, mother, plant-based home-cook, teacher, and student. She has nearly two decades of experience caring for children and families, and currently sees patients at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and serves as an affiliate clinical instructor at Stanford University School of Medicine. We know it’s hard to bring an entire family on board the plant-based journey with you because there is a real fear around community, judgment, and nutrition requirements. We also know that you want what’s best for your families and it’s time we have positive conversations around food — with your doctors, friends, and especially your family. Dr. Shah reveals some of the tools, resources, and recipes from the book that will bring joy, abundance, and nutrition back to the family table. It will also instill confidence in knowing that you’re making powerful and positive decisions for the benefit of your entire family for years to come. It's never too late to make changes and bring the family along the adventure with you.

257: Reduce inflammation, Recharge Metabolism and Create Balance with Intuitive Fasting w/ Dr. Will Cole
If You Want To Start Allowing Your Body To Do What It Was Created For You Should: * Use Dr. Will’s 4-week fasting guide to clean out your cells * Start listening for your intuition and making notes of the foods that make your body feel great * Find your own sweet spot when it comes to metabolic flexibility and fueling your body with what feels good for you * Integrate wellness into your life infused with a true knowledge of what your body loves and hates If you want to feel good, have energy throughout the entire day, get a good night's sleep, and successfully achieve your ideal weight, it is essential to get your inflammatory levels under control. Inflammation is the driver of most major diseases, but the good news is that you can use food and fasting to fight inflammation and regulate your hormones. Gain Metabolic Flexibility and Find Food Peace Dr. Will Cole is a leading functional-medicine expert who consults people worldwide and specializes in clinically investigating underlying factors of chronic disease and customizing a functional medicine approach. His new book, Intuitive Fasting, shows how to use the powerful benefits of flexible intermittent fasting to gain metabolic flexibility and find food peace. Intuition Is Key We all have an inflammatory response system that is unique to us, which is why Dr. Will encourages the use of intuitive fasting to learn what your body loves and hates. Fasting allows your cells to clean things up and allows your body to burn fat for fuel first and sugar for fuel when you need it. Dr. Will wants you to use fasting as a way to grow in your intuitive awareness of what feels good for your body specifically so that you can adopt fasting practices into your life long term. The combination of flexible, vacillating, intermittent fasting, along with a nutrient-rich ketotarian diet, can help you find your unique sweet spot, increase your metabolic flexibility, and fuel your body with the foods you love. Not Another Fad Diet While the idea of fasting may seem like another fad diet, it couldn’t be further from that. Our bodies and genetics are designed to make the most of fasting in a healthy way, and the benefits of fasting are literally coded into our DNA. In addition to fasting, a ketotarian diet can mimic the same benefits of fasting, allowing for more powerful results. Finding the right foods for your body and when to eat them can help stop inflammation in its tracks and allow you to really get aligned with what your body needs from you. Have you ever tried fasting? Are you looking to have your intuition guide you in the way you take back control of your health? Share your thoughts on Dr. Will Cole’s Intuitive Fasting framework with me in the comments section of the episode page. Quotes: “Stress eating isn’t intuitive eating. And I want people to get to a place of intuition, a deep knowledge of what their body loves and what their body hates. And a great way to still that noise, to quiet and calm that noise, to recenter yourself and ground yourself, is intermittent fasting or intuitive fasting.” (8:53) “We are all going to be coming into this system of intuitive fasting at different points in our wellness journey.” (12:49) “This is not a fad diet where we are just punishing our body with deep fasts. We are finding that balance, and that is where metabolic flexibility resides.” (18:35) “I really want to encourage people, whether you are going through the things we are talking about or you know someone you love, really wake people up to the fact that these things are overcomeable, improvable, supportable things! And your body is amazingly resilient.” (24:09) “Through the pairing of flexible intermittent fasting and a clean ketogenic diet and clean carb cycling, from there, you can really know what your body loves and what your body hates. You will have a clear knowing, and that to me transcends a protocol or a diet or a plan.” (30:49) In This Episode * How to start intuitive fasting and why it works so well for gaining metabolic flexibility (7:10) * Recommendations for your fasting journey after the initial first four weeks (12:32) * Which life-giving foods you should be focusing on and how you should be eating (14:10) * Benefits that you can expect when increasing your metabolic flexibility through fasting (19:20) * Why becoming more intuitive about your health is the cornerstone of sustainable wellness (29:40) Resources Mentioned: Dr. Will Cole Website Intuitive Fasting by Dr. Will Cole Follow Dr. Will on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter Related Episodes: Essentially You Episode #133: Understanding Inflammation and Your Individual Food Triggers with Dr. Will Cole Essentially You Episode #32: Calm Inflammation with the Ketotarian Diet with Dr. Will Cole Other Resources: Check out the full show notes page Keep up with everything Dr. Mariza Follow Dr. Mariza on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Podcast production & marketing support by the team at Counterweight Creative
