View Show Notes From This Episode:

Each bite of food we eat has the potential to modulate our genetics and impact every cell of the body—don’t you want those levers to be moving in the right direction? Eating for health is one thing, but eating to beat disease is an even more intentional step toward prevention and longevity. I was so excited to sit down with internationally renowned physician, scientist, and author Dr. William Li to discuss how we can leverage food to optimize every system of the body.

We dig into:

How Dr. Li got interested in “Food As Medicine” while developing cancer treatments

Why eating to beat disease is not the same as eating for health

What food would Dr. Li bring with him if he was going to be stuck on an island?

One thing Dr. Li knows everyone needs to do better

Is dairy good or bad?

What’s the deal with soy?

The 5 defense systems to support optimal health and Dr. Li’s 5 x 5 x 5 plan

We talk about this and so much more. I know you’ll love this conversation as much as I did!

  • @NormFields says:

    Is there a directory of Food As Medicine doctors? After having 3 stents placed in 2013, and two more placed in 2022, I see a cardiologist every six months. I could probably count on one hand how many times the subject of nutrition has even come up, much less been discussed. And I’ve never heard a cardiologist, or any of the doctors I’ve seen over the years, mention “gut health” or “microbiome” at all.

    • @annaeklund-cheong4414 says:

      Looking at the American College of Lifestyle Medicine might be a good place to start? Or, try The Institute for Functional Medicine?

    • @CreativeIntegrity says:

      Orthomolecular Medicine would be what you’re seeking. It’s nutrient based approach to healing and much more.

    Thank you Mark Hyman for the useful info you have provided me in your books I bought and now your YouTube presentations.

  • @workingtogether8804 says:

    Generally, cacao powder carries the highest concentration of heavy metals. It’s made by essentially concentrating the solids of the cacao bean and removing the oils (known as cacao butter). Our current average cadmium content in our Cacao Powder is 0.4mcg/g. For lead, it’s 0.01mcg/g. When cacao powder is combined with other ingredients—like cacao butter and sweeteners—to make chocolate bars and candies, the concentration of heavy metals per food serving decreases.

    Heavy metals are found in a long list of common food items like leafy greens, nuts, seeds, and many fruits. (NOTE HERE, is your body in optimum health, or are you one of the 75% of the population that is unhealthy??? Shown in the health journal.) THE HEALTHY BODY is adept at removing these metals through a complex and highly evolved detoxification system that sorts, tags, and eliminates heavy metals through our body’s waste pathways. We can support these processes by eating a diet rich in micronutrients and fiber, both of which are abundant in cacao.
