"It compromises your ability to make bad decisions. It's like a a circular. It is a vicious cycle and We drew it out in the book as a graphic and you know the good the good news here. The positive spin been is Newton's law that says an object in motion tends to remain in motion. Mean if you just get yourself to go into motion exercise that will enhance your decision making to commit into further exercise. And you'll then stay in motion. We've got to break these vicious feed forward cycles and to emphasize a point that we talked about earlier. Self blame part of this. You know I didn't follow through on my New Year's resolutions. Why did I eat that? How come I didn't go to the gym? All these things that we know are good for ourselves people looking in the mirror and blaming themselves. You know feeling this incredible self blame that is not the productive in any way need to realized how much the deck is stacked against them moment to moment so that they can't make those good decisions and for us as healthcare providers. We've you've got to reframe the way we look at people who don't make good decisions realize how much the deck has been stacked against them and work with them at this higher level now too i. I foster better decision making and then give the information so the the field is ready to accept the players. So you're saying if someone comes in with diabetes from meeting all kinds of a junk. We shouldn't be focused on fixing their blood sugar but fixing their decider. Well if you fix their blood sugar decision makings going to improve. Interestingly but but you you're saying go upstream absolutely absolutely this is higher level. Fifty eighty percent of people. Don't do what their doctor tells them because they're bad people jack. I'm impressed. I am reading. This is the page one. Twenty eight forty. The medical paradigm basically have is. Is that your patient. Goes into the office. They sit down with the provider provider. Says I don't understand. We talked about this. You need to exercise more. You need to eat healthier food. You haven't done it. Do not do not get this. The patient says oh no I get it. I just couldn't do it and so the doctor says well patient is noncompliant. That's that's good. That's what goes in the note. Oh and then you sign the note because there's one mental noncompliant. We need more empathy. We need to understand now as you. Well know that people are are having about You're not buying. I'm ineffective doing the right thing because I don't understand how to actually fix you're going to work on that. Yeah half our mission. Moving forward is to really get this word out that we as healthcare providers need to be thinking about this that people don't have the hard wiring in their brains. Make a doctor. I see patients. You guys are doctors. I mean my office. Someone comes in and You know work on the bench and I got them all the right information this struggling soon. We'll do do it but struggling how you GonNa help me fix my page. You say look there are a host of things that you can do to get better. You're from whatever the problem may be you know if it's these lifestyle issues. The weight gain the diabetes type. Two type whatever it may be. But I'll tell you what first of all for the next week we're going going to focus on Sleep let's see if we can get you a good night's sleep and you as you mentioned the how prevalent sleep issues are. Let's just focus on Matt then next week when you come back and you've got a week of good sleep under your belt will look at a couple other things that we can incorporate into your program. Maybe you'll teach that person how meditate we know that meditate is a super highway to the prefrontal CORTEX and really transcends all types of meditation and even prayer it all all kind of does the same thing. Maybe we introduce that the forks meditation or even the medication because people don't often take we go medic meditation before medication. People don't often take even the medications that they're prescribed so set the stage for them to be more acquiescent to be more are likely to follow through before all the recommendations are made otherwise you set yourself up for failure as a physician I think the other point on that is when we lay out all these different interventions things like changing your diet getting more exercise going out into nature or even meditating that gives you a menu now and so the patient comes in and says I can't exercise exercise not because I'm physically unable but because I'm mentally unable I cannot get myself out onto the street and jog do whatever that just isn't their thing. Now we know exercise is good for executive function for better decision making so that would be nice if they could. But that's not where you start you say well. Are you willing to go outside and spend some time in nature. Maybe they are so you give them that. Twenty minutes of nature exposure which lower stress which lowers inflammation which fosters better decision making. And then you come back to the exercise. Now they have a brain that is engineered for better choices and it may not seem to be this incredible mental block anymore so again finding these back doors into where you're trying to get to because because so many of these times patients know what they want. They want to be somebody who exercises. But they can't get their brain to be on their team. They say it. I want to be somebody who eats healthy but the brain says no. We're going to eat ice cream and chips tonight. And that's what winds up happening. So the goal here is to get your brain on your team so you're not constantly fighting against it and having people label you as not having enough willpower. That's just not a sufficient answer. You know. It's interesting I just had this recent experience. It was really shocking to me. Even though I've been doing this forever. We're the holidays. I went to New Zealand. My Wife's family. There's all kinds of stuff and I ate pretty well. I Cook Christmas dinner. Jenner them Jewish super healthy and it was just like it's empathy really really healthy but delicious You know I didn't have any junk and you know we had like chocolate chocolate for dessert and stuff but it was other places. I went where it wasn't like that and there was ice cream and stuff they usually don't eat and I just felt myself like falling off and wanting more four and more exactly and then I came back. My wife and I decided to do like a ten day reset which is based on my new program the Attendee Orissa program which you can get a get pharmacy dot com and and and then we did sort of a clean diet and then I did I did. We did actually three days of juice fasting just green juices and then started back in with the ten day reset and I mean so fascinating to me because I you know I know exactly what to do. I've written a bazillion books about it but I don't always do it. And sometimes I fall into through the bad decision making and when I did the reset on my system I know it decreased inflammation. I know it. Help me sleep better. I know it helped me actually function physiologically better and I now find it like not a problem like I was traveling in the airport has breakdown and I was like no. It's no problem I have no issues. I'm seeing a pizza cross for me. I don't care I wouldn't order. The food on the airplane reconnected. And you brought the adult back into was central thesis. Here Izzo fascinating to me. Because I I was like wow I kinda know but like this was such a visceral experience where my desires change in the same boat as the patient who doesn't follow through. Yeah I mean you have a doctor. That's speaking to. It happens to be your own voice saying you shouldn't do this but yet you can't help yourself. And this is a terrible plan words. It's is a feed forward cycle. You had a couple of indiscretions while you were out in New Zealand. You ate some ice cream next thing you know your willpower is is kaput but you at at least tried to rein it in by doing one thing or another and that's really what we're getting at. Imagine in the doctor patient relationship. Say You know Mrs Jones I. We're GONNA work on this and it's not gonNA happen overnight but before we really jump into your program. Let's say here's what I want you to do again. As I mentioned. Good night's sleep. I want you to walk around the block a couple times and by the way I would like you to buy a house plant. Leave it at that maybe next week. You you bring a couple of things into the into into the program. You talk about Meditation Talk About Reconnection Talk About keeping a gratitude journal all of these things to further strengthen connection then you end up like you ended up after you finally. Did you reset finally in control able to walk through an airport and bypass CINNA buns. Yeah I mean I mean is gophers cinemas but I'll buy that chocolate covered almonds. I'm like Oh I feel bad as hell. I'm traveling. I'm on my way just by some chocolate. None of them was there and I like easily could have done it and I was all around me but it was just the most interesting thing I was like. Wow this being aware of it is is really important. But that's an impulsive type of behavior that's ultimately threatening to make things worse. It's it's like Gary Tabs talked about saying that We don't get fat because we eat more. We eat more because we're getting fat. meaning that our fat cells have their own agenda agenda they have a mind of their own fat cells they want higher levels of Ghrelin and they WANNA increase inflammation which further locks us into impulsively. Yeah so great. I mean I think this is a Meta book right this is it is exactly because there's a lot of great advice out there. There's a lot of great programs you and I have written. I'm and some people take it and run with it but a lot of people don't a lot of people struck and the sustainability issue is the key then he can do something for ten days but then how do you sustain sustain it and unless you deal with the Meta issues of how your brain is working or how your brain is broken. You can't change your life you can't show up in your your family and be loving and connected you can't show up for your work and mission life and you can't be in service. which is the highest gift that we can all give to ourselves and others because you're stuck in a brain it's fight or flight? The adults gone from the room. You're making bad decisions. And it's taking the world down and you know I I. I do believe that you know a big driver of this is our inflammatory lifestyles and that you know is driven by lack of exercise stress and so forth but the food is got to be the biggest driver inflammation inflammation and. It's such a doorway in people. Can it is a doorway out a tour though it's out of their diet and that's why you know we so honor the the the perspective that you are taking moving forward to really address what's going on with food on a global level yeah and How exciting that is you know? We have involvement involvement with how that is happening in. That is a huge driver. It is a again. It's a feed forward cycle that perpetuates impulsively L.. Seventy when we see that here in America of the one point two million different foods sold in the grocery stores. That sixty eight percent have added sugar or sweeteners. Tacking into our desire for sweet and creating. This is in chemicals and I I just remember reading this study. I wrote about my book. Food fix right which was about feeding kids in no violent kids in juvenile detention centers. A healthy diet and what it did to them was so striking taking their aggression levels change their oppositional behavior change their violent behavior change their willingness to be cooperative and helpful improve their homicide. I mean there are suicide rates. Dropped one hundred fold but why would you want to change their diets if we could just medicate them. Well yeah a good idea. I I told by stock in the Drug Company. Forget about the food. No it doesn't work. The medications actually don't work. They're not powerful. That's the answer we're looking for the effects of the food food. I mean if there was a drug that could reduce violent behavior aggression opposition conflict by fifty to one hundred percent. I mean it would be the best selling drug of all time but there is one. It's called food. Yeah and if there were a drug. This is a bit off topic that was associated with such a profound reduction in Alzheimer's risk as exercise it would also be a home run. Yeah when you stack all these things that you're talking about sleep meditation. It's interesting how you you talked about the primary things not being exercised diet but sleep in meditation. Which I think is important for people to hear because you can't start to unwind that stress response? Activating the mid La. Unless you start to get sleep and cotton your brain down through meditation. But we've we've all been in situations where our major lazer are really kicked in. And it's not necessarily easy to reign raining in in an acute way I describe an experience I had in in a big box store once when Somebody was being A. May I say disparaging aging I towards me and I was cool with that but then Aggressive towards my wife and I was within moments of being Aggressive live and inappropriate and luckily I was able to bring the adult into the room and rain in my Mittler based You Bet but we know that. That often isn't the case with many people who do not have that high way connected to the prefrontal CORTEX and can't rain themselves in you know. Oh you've accidentally cut somebody off in the car and the next thing you know they're driving you off..

"Is when our glymph addict system is activated. We're taking the garbage out. We've talked about before. How fundamentally important for the consolidation of memory at Cetera? We know that one night's it's sleep deprivation in one study led to a sixty percent increased activation of the Magdala when people were confronted with negative images sixty percent increase response of the immigrant. People saw something threatening versus those who had gotten a good night's sleep that means just yes that's a night has a huge effect on the MEG. Delo let's spin that if we coffee on top of that this is then we. We know that a good night's sleep can be really good at placating the Amiga at least keeping you level and that might be the entrance point that might be the on ramp for you or for somebody else to say. Look I'm going to dedicate tonight to getting a good night's sleep and even further. I'm going to dedicate to learning more about my sleep. Yeah I go to sleep sleep and I think I get seven hours sleep. But what is the quality of that sleep. Who knows? Do you have enough ram sleep. Jim Enough Deep Sleep. What is your sleep latency? And there's a lot of wearable devices out there. Now we use an or ring I know your big with an ordering. That tells US gives us great information about the quality. Not just the quantity and I think that's really important. This is incredibly underrated. When we recognize that reduction of restorative sleep activates activates the Omega increases impulsivity and therefore and you give tips for fixing your sleep in their? Oh we have a whole section on that but increases are impulsivity and ourselves. centeredness are are less likelihood to be involved in things that are empathetic. We want to reconnect. So getting a good night's sleep is a powerful tool to offset what we're talking about. Disconnection Syndrome reconnected. The prefrontal CORTEX allowing more thoughtful decision making and implementation. Yeah of all the great information. That's out there. I wonder what messed up. Seventy percent of Americans don't get good sleep It's a little bit of an overestimate from what we've read but It's it's that way in Japan. That's for sure a lot but You Know Great Book Matthew Walker why we sleep. I mean who knew all the reasons that sleep is so darn restorative. We used to think. Oh it's just passive. It's downtime but we know the brain is exquisitely active in various stages of sleep doing things housekeeping consolidation of memory. But now we recognize the importance of sleep in offsetting disconnection syndrome inflammatory. That's a very powerful mechanism and also is is associated with reduced court. Acelle in Cortisol is again the stress hormone fight or flight. Hormone one that's GONNA create divisiveness conflict and bad decision making in response to others and yourself yes and let me just take that a bit further for any of your Tech Weenie kind of ADS. Who really liked to follow the science? We understand that inflammation through. What's called the kind unique acid? Pathway may compromise available Serotonin in the brain. Your the AD. We're aware of that cortisol. Does the same thing. Yeah so it puts David saying is that when there's inflammation your brain. Chemistry gets screwed up. And you can't make a happy mood chemical serotonin from this precursors and so you end up creating inflammatory byproducts. Can you're in a gas at Kalinic. Acid pickling pickle in which all create inflammation we actually contest. And I see that on my patients within organic acid test you can actually see. These patients were inflamed. Their brain in chemistry isn't right so we buy brain fog and flame brains and depression anxiety and sleep issues as you would expect. Yeah and you know when we see this all the time time and review this literature it just solidifies what. We're what we're trying to do here and the outreach. So so at the end of the day you want people reclaim their lives. You want people who reclaim their decision making ability. You want them to sort of disconnect from the forces out there that are pushing us in ways that Dr Harm to ourselves and harmed our communities and harm to society essentially what you're saying. This is a big Austin has has always said look. If you don't take control somebody else will. And that's what's happening and you know as it gets back to this decision making. It really doesn't matter a lot if you you choose used to be Vegan Paleo or you want to go full in on Kito whatever it is These are probably pretty good diets across the board in terms terms of inflammation. But it doesn't matter that you choose one or the other it's the implementation part right. So how'd you get to the right decisions. What else they have to do? Go ahead of us. Sure I wanted to make one point decider so that is the central question and I want to just outlined this so that everyone understands exactly what we're talking about when it comes to the health outcomes or outcomes in general we care about. We know that we want to be making good choices that lead us towards losing that. ADD extra belly. Fat May be that. Get us to the gym when we want to go to the gym and so as providers we tell our patients. Here's what you need to do. We take it upon ourselves. I have to say I know what I need to do. And when we don't do those things we say it's a deficit of one or two things. One is the information. We didn't have the right information. We weren't eating the right foods or we say it's a deficit in willpower right. We say you just didn't want it enough. And that is a paradigm that creates a whole lot of blame fault so for patients. Sure but as we said before for each of us individually when we can't bridge that gap between WHO. We are now in who we wish yes. We could become if we made those good decisions. And what we've missed in. This is the role of the brain in determining our choices. It is as you said. It's the decider heider. It is the decision making engine and what we're talking about here is how the environment our lifestyle modifications and the like change our brain and how those changes in the brain then lead to good or bad decisions. Set US up for good or bad decisions as you said right in the beginning it's getting upstream and no longer longer just putting all the blame on ourselves or on other people for this lack of willpower or lack of information so it starts with again the first half of the Book Understanding Understanding where these people have hacked into our brains where corporations who maybe aren't evil or anything but are just trying to sell sugary product are hacking into our are more primitive reward mechanisms and keeping US hooked keeping our neural structure or our neural architecture literally programmed so that we can't escape these straps you know some of these big food companies hire research scientists to put kids in a functional mores scanner to look at their brain the most frightening to me and and so this is the point the my dad also just made which is if you don't do anything if you say I'm GonNa take the world as it is and not worry about it other people will make your choices for you and what does does that mean what we get the world. We have Right now where people are struggling with these preventable conditions. So it's even by not making that choice of worrying about it. You're still making a choice voice. You're allowing you're choosing to let other people define your brain and choose your decisions. The alternative is exactly what we've been talking about today. which is if you start first understanding how that's happening and next how you can make interventions to rebuild rewire and reconnect your brain for good choices? You're taking back your life and you're taking back those outcomes. We said that people make bad choices. EAT The bad foods. Don't sleep enough. Don't get.

"Something something quickly. You don't think about your future crave more carbs if you don't see you absolutely. Do you crave carbs to the extent that the average increase caloric consumption in somebody who chronically deprives himself or herself asleep is three hundred and eighty calories a day a pound a week. It's a pound about every week that's right and you. It doesn't take long when you gain that weight and you increase your body fat. What does that do it? Compromises your ability to get a good night's sleep that creates it's yet another feed forward cycle and we know that body fat is you know prime source of inflammation the bodies. Well so this becomes feed forward and things get get worse and worse and worse and what we offer in. The new book are the off-ramps now we have a ten day plan. Ten different things to think about but it doesn't matter which off ramp you start with each of those will in some way improve your momentary decision making it might be just dedicate that tonight. You're going to get a good restorative night's sleep or finally get twenty minutes of exercise or or learn how to meditate whatever it may be which will then pave the way for better better decision-making moving forward most importantly most importantly in the beginning of the book. We call out these tax. These threats Where things are being of they've gone askew so we're going to get into the details of how to protect yourself? Bring brainwashed your your ten day brainwash program or reset for your brain. But before we do I wanna I wanna come back to the science of what the Internet and digital technology algae does to the structure and function of our brain to our decision making. And how do we lower that risk. How do we how do we manage that? I ah like I said I saw. My friend had a thousand pickups on her phone and it was like in the afternoon already doesn't one day. How do we deal with that? What does the science tell us about? The effect of Sharing Hajjis. Well I think it's it's clear that we're still early on in knowing what happens when we're exposed to the amount of digital technology that we're exposed those two. We know that the average American spends about four hours a day watching TV and that person will also spend about two hours a day on their smartphone. And that isn't even including all these other exposures to media that we're getting just walking around in New York City so the question is then. What is that doing to our brains? And we've got some initial evidence in you one study. They showed that people with excessive social media. Use had changes in the Corpus callosum so less activity in the part of the brain that literally connects the two hemispheres of the brain. And you can see that too with Internet addiction so superhighway between the two sides of your brain right and it's not working right. That's exactly it. Yeah and again. I think I think it's early on so we're not exactly sure. What are the implications of this? What we can say though is it's worth questioning what we're doing with this digital exposure time so for example sample if you're turning on the TV and watching the news each day and that news is incredibly stressful? We know that's not good for you if you turn on the news the good news channel. We're all better is it. Who's going to be? I am inspiring stories. The Dalai Lama said that the brain we build reflects the life we lead and that means means that If you constantly are exposing yourself to negativity and fear based kind of media you're going to rewire your brain to be to gravitate more towards towards that type of life and therefore you're not going to watch the good news channel. It's true I have a friend who's probably the happiest person I know. Maybe other than the dilemma. And she knows nothing about what's going on the world. I Want Center picture of me and Vice President Biden at at at the vice president's house in Washington and he's like who's that old guy unlike That's the vice president and I'm like wow maybe that's good. Maybe it might be but you know we know that as humans we there ah there. Is this negativity bias and that might probably have served us well In our ancestors times to be really aware of things that were were negative that were potentially threatening to us but these days that type of bias is being you know it's truly being preyed upon we are being preyed upon day. In and day out we have a wonderful graph in brainwash That demonstrates the increased negative news over the past several decades. A A. It's been it's sort of like the frog in the water. That's getting warmer and warmer. We don't really respond to it acutely but it's happening I mean. Watch the news and just just ask yourself how much is positive is always the human interest story at the end of a firefighter. Saving the cat or whatever it may be but by and large it is so aggressive passive. There's either an alert sign flashing on the bottom of the crawler on the bottom of the screen. Or you're in a situation room or everything is breaking breaking news and it's always bad lighting up the AMIGA and the more you challenge that the more you light up your Magdala Day in and day out the more it's going to function the more it's going to grow and the less likely you are able to tap into the part of the brain which is our gift as humans prefrontal cortex that allows forward thinking decisions and acting with empathy. Yeah so powerful so now let's talk about how to fix this disconnection syndrome and there's a lot of medicines. You use her unconventional but they work. And when I me- medicine I mean things like food exercise meditation nature. So tell us how you plan to get us to be able to make decisions to decrease the inflammation their brain into dial down the AMIGA and regulate the frontal lobe. And do it in a way that actually works so that we can make decisions for ourselves and for our communities in these and for the planet which we all desperately need. Yeah what a question and is so fundamental you know. The bottom line is as the things we're recommending are for the most part completely free or you might have to buy a pair of tennis shoes but it turns out that this ancient wisdom about what we need to be doing thing to reconnect to balance in our lives too high quality of health. It's all there and it's now been substantiated in the research. What we talk about is a series as of steps that a person can kind of jump in on at any given point which will give them now access to that prefrontal cortex when you do that? It allows you to then make more and better your decisions. So it's a feed forward cycle in your favor you've outlined some of those steps already. The first one that we lay out is you need to reclaim. I am your control over your digital habits right so this is a very functional thing that you can do to start regaining some economy from these stressors in your life but then we move very quickly into what can you add in to start improving the quality of your life and something that I shouldn't have all my devices duct tape to my body at all times. It makes it hard to go through security at the airport Airpor- hang on. I got a call coming so again. It's it's setting healthy boundaries with the things that are not helping you and then it's bringing in the stuff that is going to help you you so we talked about nature getting outside for twenty minutes. A week has been associated with lower levels of stress. Doesn't take that much we said you can just put a plant in your home. You can and even put a picture of nature in your home and be getting these benefits as well as something like essential oils and then we build into that so we talk about. How do you start? Fostering during the empathy that is going to help you connect to other people and propagate this sense of completion with this balanced part of your brain where you're prefrontal Cortex is activated your Fostering more oxytocin which then connects you from the love hormone. Yes it is. It's gotten a lot of press recently but something that we don't talk about enough. Is it actually integrates. It's the prefrontal Cortex with the Mingla and let them communicate. So you don't have talked more sex. We have to connect with people we have to Abajo hands as we have to look at each other's is we have to touch each other. We have to hug each other. Just smile at each other. That's the way we're designed right. This isn't anything brand new to people. This is how humans were kind of designed to be wherever you think. That design is coming from. We've been spending a lotta time doing that. And it's worked out pretty well for us but as of late we've decided isolation is superior to to being connected and that is what is called social media. What a misnomer? We're not social on social media. We are isolated. Yes it'd be isolation media via. Wow so how do we get control of our digital technology. Because you know it's hard for on our phones or chicken or text message notifications and we turned off our notifications. Do we we do. We put our foreign airplane most the time and then just pick it up them on. How do how do we do the do delete on the APP store? He lead social media. I think everything you said is something that you could do which would be of benefit. NFL Now we know that even when two people strangers are sitting next to each other and they put a phone between them. It lowers the quality of their interaction. It lowers the amount of perceived empathy. They expected the other person was giving towards them. So putting your phone in the other room it is so simple and yet it will probably do more than just about anything else to improve the quality audie of your interactions with the people around you. So that dinner parties I have a boxing center table puts the phonebox close up and nobody can touch it. Used to be the keys. Doc Right yes. It was distracted driving putting your phone away when you're driving in the car you talk about a really quick way to lower accidents across the country but I just wonder how the Uber driver text me back when I'm fat but let me pick up.

"austin perlmutter" Discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.

"That's true right without your decision making fixed all the rest of it doesn't matter right you can decide. You WANNA eat better and exercise unless you have the right decision making apparatus that's not hijacked which it has been. We're GONNA talk about that. You can't make those good decisions so you you are doing with this book brainwash right for one muzzle tough and. He's also also interested in methods of improving burnout and poor mental health in the medical field because yes doctors are among the most stressed high suicide rates drug use etc.. It's pretty bad so welcome to the doctors. Pharmacy David in Austin. We are delighted to be here. That's for sure okay. So that's half the podcast and I'm so excited about this book. You you really made a cultural impact Grain Brain helping break through the confusion about what's the deal with wheat and grains and brain function and overall L. Health but your book brainwash is a little bit different because it substitutes upstream deals with the cause of why we get to where we're getting to with our decisions and how our modern world threatens our ability to make good decisions You know life presents us with all sorts of opportunities in all all sorts of temptations which I certainly am pulled by every single day when I pick up my phone whatever we can eat when we want we can eat whatever ever we want wherever we want we can have vast exciting amounts of digital media that can take up all of our day. I had a friend once I was sitting in a An event lecture with her and she was on her phone. Oh causing I said. Give me your phone. I I want your screen time button and I I open it and said a thousand pickups in the day like every thirty seconds. She's picking up her phone you. How does that affect our our decisions concentration? We can buy goods and services come overnight in New York you can get a drone delivery practically in five minutes delivered to your apartment but this twenty. Four seven hyper reality Poses real risks to our physical and mental states are connections to other people because we're losing zing our social networks by being on social networks which is a real problem even disconnects us from the world that large so how is our health south our relationships and even our thinking being damaged by modern culture in a word or anything. As long as you want me right back ah well characterized it by saying top order kind of attention that we need to spend. It doesn't matter what advise people get whether they read my book or your book or all the wonderful books that our colleagues are putting out it. We don't suffer from a lack of information. We suffer from a lack lack of action. And that's what this book is all about. It's about regaining control. Over that process that you mentioned the process of decision making all of are chronic degenerative ills that plagued the world. Today are really a result of poor decision making more impulsively Catering to those types types of foods that we know we all would want those sweet foods highly processed foods that are palatable hyper palatable that are designed really to hack in to our primitive desires and we we know what makes for a good lifestyle choices we know we should exercise. We know we should pay attention to the amount of sleep and the Quality Volley Asleep that we get most of us know that meditation happens to be a good thing that we should get out and exercise reconnect with nature. But unfortunately so many of us don't do that and you know one of the revelations that we had in the book was that we as healthcare providers and this is what got Austin and I started on. This path tend to blame our patients for not following through. Told you what to do better. Why did I just do conferences? We read the books folks. We get our continuing medical education. We learn as much as we can meet our. CPA's whatever they may be continuing pharmaceutical right. Well you you didn't hear me say that. And then we transmit that information as best we can verbally to our patients through written media etc but then the ball is dropped dropped and we accuse our patients we. Why don't you follow through and beyond that people are doing a self blame thing? Why did I drop? My New Year's resolutions wins. I know I should be following Dr Hymens advice and eating this night eating that and yet they don't follow through and it's not necessarily their fault. When we we recognize through many of the things you've mentioned that in our modern world the deck is stacked against us? Yeah so how how does it affect act are are thinking in our decision making and how does that work absolutely what we've learned a lot in recent years about what actually goes into decision in making and it's really complex. It's kind of this field called neuro economics at zero economics yes they're relatively nascent field but what we're now understanding is as it relates to decision making there a couple of core pieces we can pull out. And that is the prefrontal cortex which is the front. Most part of the brain one of the most recently developed parts of the brain turns out to be absolutely essential in allowing us to make good well-thought-out decisions so put that into a little bit more easy to understand context. The prefrontal Cortex is like the adult. It allows you to weigh the pros and cons to think about. What are the long term outcomes of these decisions? So you really want that. PREFRONTAL CORTEX EX to be activated to allow you to think through your actions. Yeah now on the other hand there are other parts of the brain that do great things for us. These include parts of the brain like the middle and the general unroll reward circuitry. They're essential they are. It's like you're ancient fighter flight reactive brain exactly and unless you have that frontal brain going. Hey wait a minute guys shut up. It's not so bad you're not gonNA die this okay. It's adult in the room right. The adult in the room the adults in the brain. That's really it so again. It's a complex system but if you can understand a couple of the big parts of this decision making apparatus that is the brain then you can understand how certain aspects of it again that more reactive active more primitive part of the brain can be targeted by marketing can be targeted by these hacks into your more primitive brain to keep you making these impulsive short-term decisions that then lead to all of these problems we see in the world these preventable chronic diseases high rates of anxiety higher rates of depression and political division divisiveness balance and aggression. What you said just really struck me Austin because we are living in a culture where we're in constant conflict? I've never been alive and I've been alive six years in time where there's so much divisiveness so much opposition so much hatred whether it's between Republicans Democrats you know White Supremacist. I'm black like me folks. or whether it's between vegans and Palios. It's like what is going on that. We are so in conflict and why is our frontal lobe. Not Kicking in Dan. And how has our culture digital media the food were eating and other stress factors hijacking. Our ability to make decisions is in damaging our frontal lobe connection. Let me speak to the stress piece. I think probably want to talk about inflammation as a fundamental piece of this too. We all know chronic stress. This is a problem in our lives. No one's out there looking for more chronic stress but now what we understand is that chronic stressed disables the prefrontal cortex when you look at these. As animal models you see that the neurons in the prefrontal CORTEX shrivel up when they're exposed to chronic stress on the other hand while the Amiga they expand and you get more dendritic branches creates more connection so in the Amiga where you don't want that so in essence being exposed to chronic stress is rewiring brains means to favor the types of activities that create chronic stress. And again well let me just break down. So you said was when you're in the chronic stress it kills the brain cells in your adult brain. That helps you make decisions and it makes the ones grow in the fight or flight part of your brain where you can be angry divisive. You've and run or fight right exactly so so that's not good. I wish it wasn't that way. But you look at these long term studies in humans who have undergone chronic stress dress. And you see that. The PREFRONTAL CORTEX is smaller. You can actually physically see that it is smaller and people who have had these life experiences. This chronic stress overtime Aleka frontal lobotomy by stress. No it's actually in a way it's very similar because it is a disconnection and we talk in the book about something a term that we coined coined which is disconnection syndrome. Yeah tell us about that. Well that is exactly what you were just alluding to and that is disconnection of this prefrontal cortex from the Amiga disconnecting taking the adult out of the room allowing the middle to make these decisions that are impulsive and self centered meaning narcissistic that lack empathy. The and that really enhance this US versus them mentality strengthened by whatever it is that locks us into the amid this disconnection disconnection from the prefrontal CORTEX. And you know you brought up digital digital experiences. What does social media do? It's anything but social you go go to a social media site that only caters to your point of view at the at the cost of castigating others who have a different point of view. That's not empathy. Empathy is me trying to see the world through mark hyman size. How do you view something or even something? WHO has somebody? Somebody who has really different views than I. Yeah and seeing what. What is that like? We need that in in Washington. It's called reaching across the aisle isn't happening. I mean I just I just had an amazing experience last week. And if you're not open you know I met this guy who you know in my road to be the enemy who works for one of the biggest food companies on on the planet. That's doing massive destruction. That's factory farm animals and I could have been like he's the enemy but I was curious and I he was a human being and I was like. That's what what were you thinking. What are you thinking what you care about and why did you do this? And what do you think about that. And it was like the most incredible relationship and I feel like now this friendship with this guy who thinks differently than I do but but we opened the door and now he's interested in learning about what I think and carrying about who I am as a person but my inclusions war and it's like that all is undermined undermined by what you said the digital technology you know mark. You and I've talked years ago about the value of diversity in terms of our gut. Bacteria and the same aim thing holds for diversity of opinions. The more we are at peace with diversity of opinions the more resilient we can be and the more we can move forward award in terms of our knowledge base and understanding about how the world works. And you you hit the nail on the head that we're seeing much more about digging. Our heels is in defending our position saying the world is flat though it may not be I mean we just WanNa go back to what you said. David fermented understand the degree in which our our data is being captured analyzed targeted. According to our personality to our worst fears and personality traits driving arriving our decisions driving our behaviors to the point that is literally creating artificially constructed rallies that activate white supremacists the premises versus.

A few years ago I interviewed the world renowned Chef Marco Canola or and finally got a chance to try his famous bone broth and I kept hearing about I was blown away. I can say hands down. It was the most delicious bone Roth I've ever tried in my life no joke it's called Bro Biaro. Do and if you're in New York City you probably seen the broader bone broth windows around town. But I have some great news you you can now get broken bone broth delivered right to your door bone broth has been getting a lot of hyper mason years and for good reason. It's a super healing food.

His great grandmother did using slow simmering pasteurize bones in fresh veggies in small batches. The Bronco team personally visits farms arms they source from and they support eating knows detail just like our ancestors did and that means you use all parts of the animal. Even the awful which is is the organs which is the most nutritious part and broncos dedication to freshness means zero preservatives and zero concentrates.

"Episode of the Doctors Pharmacy. The Westernization of the Global Diet is threatening our behavior threatening our decision making and fostering and US versus them mentality that is pervasive around the world. Hey everyone it's Dr Mark Hyman here. Now I'm always being asked how to source high quality auty meat and seafood. So I WANNA share one of my favorite resources with you that I use to get high quality protein in my own diet now. Unfortunately most meat and seafood at the grocery store is not serving our health or the planet for that matter conventionally raise animals have higher levels of inflammatory fats not to mention all the antibiotics hormones and other harmful compounds that we just should not eat the seafood. Well that can be full of heavy metals and other toxins or or just lacking nutrients in general because their farm raised. And don't even get me started on the environmental and the inhumane aspects of conventional meat and seafood food production. Either that's another huge issue that we can improve by shopping more consciously and that is why I love but your box they make it super easy to get humanely raised me that you can trust by delivering it right to your doorstep but your box has everything you could want like one. One hundred percent grass fed and grass finished beef and even wild caught Alaskan sockeye salmon and shipping is always free now but your box is committed to humanely mainly raise.

"Dynamics of sleep. What stages of sleep are you deficient in? Are you getting enough REMM sleep. Are you get enough. Deep Sleep. The time when R.. glymph attic system is is activated to help clean the virtually take the garbage out shampoo the brain brainwash. What a turn as it were? You don't know that unless you're having some sort of way of assessing that and there are many things that one can do. I think by and large people will be surprised when they finally learn about that and that it might well be simple to limit your blue light exposure in the evenings To limit your caffeine consumption after two PM having virtually no caffeine after two P timing of exercise during the course of the day doing something called time restricted. Eating where you're not eating right up until the moment you go to sleep or sleep is just doing one thing for your body and then diverted to digestion. That's some that's maybe going to happen earlier so I think also have comments for other ideas but I think that's it's a very underrated and powerful on ramp when you consider that a third of American adults do not get enough restorative sleep. I'M GONNA go with the tech piece. I agree with my dad and that the sleep is probably the single biggest intervention. You can do getting a good night of sleep. We'll set you up better than anything else but when it comes to the the short I don't WanNa say quick fixes here because there are no quick fixes but when it comes to getting some some steam going technology so we talked about the time already but the average American is watching four hours of TV spending about another two hours a day on their phones and I would wager. Most of that time is not productive. It's not adding much to the quality of life so I think that taking a look at what you're doing with technology is going to be the single the best way to say. Wow there's a big difference between what I need to be doing and what I actually am doing. So these interventions you can make like going through and deleting some some apps on your phone that you're no longer using like setting limits on how long you actually spend on social media or even just learning how much time you're spending on these APPs each day is is going to grant you so much insight into how you can improve and so we talk about the test of time but we go through in the book and ten day plan a much more comprehensive way of approaching pushing your digital interactions I think that any of those interventions will give you that concept of how much progress you can make. I think for the average person that's going going to create an amazing benefit just in even a couple of minutes making those changes. I'm all for efficiencies here so you're talking about sleep. You're talking about technology analogy no phone no phone bed turn it off. It sounds sounds so easy right now creeps. It's way in there. Yeah we think that using a using an alarm clock as opposed to a phone room is a great way of removing that one thing that the phone tries to convince you it needs to be in the room for the phone says well you know you don't uneven for social media but you're not gonNa make it to work unless I go off in the morning. You don't have to have the phone to do that. You can use an alarm clock or you can put the phone in the other room. I mean and just just leave it there for the entirety of the day but the goal is to start creating more separation between yourself and these addictive technologies so that you can start to rewire your habit loop so that you can start to experience your day to day in a way that gives you the opportunity to do the stuff that is meaningful as opposed to what's easy so we don't have an alarm clock but as aside joke we have to human alarm clocks in the form of our three year old and seven month old girls which leads me to my next question something colleen and I think about allot raising kids in this environment. Any advice for parents out there. Yeah I'd say first of all well recognized that you know. We used to consider the brand to be tableau ru this blank. Slate upon which life experiences would be written and provide the software if you will for the operating system moving Ford and I think to some degree. It's still a bit of a valid kind of a model but that the window is only open for a relatively short period of time. So what happens early in life really does set the stage in terms of the operating system. Moving forward for the rest of that individual's life so when that hat The intervention is offloaded to a digital device for example to screen time which is very very common. I'm seeing these days I mean. I'm seeing kids in baby. Carriages being walked around holding a looking at it on a pat of one form or another while mom is on the is speaking to or doing facetime with somebody. There's no interaction there. There's Zun action not only with the child in the environment but with mother and child as well and those are powerfully important interactions that are critically involved in building a brain building a better brain for that child to then understand what goes on in the world in a very testable verifiable way hey versus being linked into dependency upon a digital device. So I think the message would be that the window closes very rapidly rapidly and the the this degree of neuropathy city that is present early early in life is a gift That can be used or abused and and I think that would be a very important lesson last question. Lots of interesting science right now. I remember year ago when you're on you talked about this concept psychology so excited. I'm so excited for this book. Like what's exciting to you guys right now in the world of science in terms of studies. And where would you. Where do you think the conversations going to be a year from now? You WanNa go first. Sure we're getting back to where we started this podcast and and the idea that we focused all of our attention on willpower and information being the primary ways we could influence decisions and understanding now that that we can get to the fundamental architecture of how decisions are made and the brain we can support a brain for good decisions or we can leave it to social media and the news to support our brain for decisions to an inflammatory diet to support it for impulsive. Thinking so I think where this goes next is integration into the whole habit bit model and saying we know habits are incredibly powerful way of influencing how we create our days but this is one step upstream of the saying. If you want to get started with creating better habits you still need to have that executive function that enables you say time to make a change. And what would that look like nick. So I see this as part of this continuum which is you. Have your objectives your outcomes. You care about whether that's being a healthier person in general losing some weight having having better relationships doing better at work and then you have where you are now and for so long. We've thought that there's this gap that has to be filled by only willpower. You're an only information. Now we're seeing habits fit into that but what we're talking about in this book is that there's a step before that and that is engineering. The brain that enables you to make better decisions enables you to create these better habits so again. Summarize I see this integrating into this whole habit paradigm airtime as a continuum of how you go through life following through on what you care about reaching your goals I would have to just go along with Austin's response aunts there. It's very exciting that we're at a place now suddenly where it's not about giving out the information It's about using the information it's about changing the mind to be able to act upon that information to create as we've done in brainwash the bridge between information and action. That's that's leading a science It's going to take a little bit of work. I think for people to get their arms around this idea. It's not like a Grain where you say. Eat less sugar and you lose weight and have better sex or whatever. People took away from that book. I don't know but this is a little bit more complex. But it needs to be EH. Because you know brain activity brain The brain functionality as released a decision making is not necessarily an easy topic. But that's where the science is. We're in the early stages. But the empowering part of the story is that we have the ability right now today to change that wiring and changed the brains functionality so that we can reconnect to the part of the brain that lets us be the people that we really want to be. I love it so real last question. Russian more of a personal question. I'm curious so what what what's going so right in the pro modern family you're writing books with Aussies. MD your daughter races and incredibly talented artist. Artist I'm just curious you know from my point of view a really successful happy healthy family. What did you do so right? That might be the greatest copper parent could ever get and I am blessed by having A wife who is understanding and compassionate and forward thinking and an amazing amazing teammate. Wait for me and I think early on our relationship we recognize what was important for ourselves. for those around us and that was I think the environment that we tried to create for the children that we raised and in our modern world is very challenging especially as it relates to raising children. Look at what we're up against. Look what the You know what we're competing with. It's hard to compete with what kids are being exposed to these days. But that's what this book's about and you know with the the idea of connection for me as a father to be able to connect with my son our son to in this. The project moving forward has been one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. And I think that I conveyed that to you a year ago at the inception of this project so here we are a year later. What's your take Austin has to help? My parents did a good job in general. What was going on in the family? Did you know scheduled here. I as a parent under the super curious everyone else theories. I think it's really easy to fall victim to hindsight bias or whatever and basically say this is why things worked out the way they did. I'M GONNA go with the unconditional love peace. I think that's maybe the most fundamental part of it all is to have the people who are in your corner and we're going to support you even when you don't support yourself You know it's a it's a challenging question and it gets to some of those fundamental pieces of what drives US forward but both of my parents have always been understanding. Always been there for me and I think that one thing thing. I'm really lucky to have. Is this balance between my dad. and My mom who don't always share the exact same opinions but who are kind to each other and walk through that and and seeing how that could exist in their relationship model has been so helpful for me and my relationships both with my work and with the people in in my life I love that it's funny. I ask Deepak Chopra similar question and it was specifically with with young kids and he said under the age of three. Very unconditional love. That's just love. Just love them that's it don't worry about all the classes and all the stuff you can get caught up here and in New York just love unconditional love and and then after three. We stopped three three out their own. Then it's preschool them. We're playing but I love that. Unconditional Love I love. Well congrats on the book. Everyone nother must read now. From the plural doctors Pearl mutters. The dynamic father son duo a must read brainwash. Josh pick it up. Thank you Jason. Thank you so much congratulations..

"Three hundred eighty calories day and it's only thirty five hundred calories to equal one pant pound of body fat so this worsens your issues with respect overweight and obesity which does what further compromises your sleep. That's yet another vicious cycle as it relates to exercise It it's it's a little bit more all over the spectrum we can extrapolate a bit from the exercise Studies that deal with the brain in particular and look GATT the benefits of exercise in terms of increasing a chemical. That's really good for the brain called beady enough and that research seems to show that one hundred and forty minutes of exercise weekly in which is aerobic in contrast to just doing a stretching program is associated with a robust increase in the chemical that that leads to a better brain. We know that exercise is associated. A long-term with reductions in stress Hormone Cortisol which is threatening in terms of disconnection syndrome and threatening to the brain and in addition is a wonderful way to help down regulate this process fundamental process of inflammation there are other aspects in terms of creating endorphins. The feel good chemicals which is feed forward that tends to reinforce You know this idea that you want to exercise. So so Isaac Newton said Not necessarily as it relates to exercise but a body in motion tends to remain in motion. And what does it mean vis-a-vis this conversation. It means that if you get into motion you start exercising your decision making will improve and your then much more likely to you. Continue your exercise or remain in motion. So you know. This is information that mind body green Readers have heard in the past sped exercises. Good that we've got to pay attention to sleep. Get Out in nature and we'll talk about that in a minute but in the context of being able moving forward to make make better decisions. This is the Lens through which this book was written. which is a I think? A very empowering vantage point to look now now upon these lifestyle choices I love it and talk about nature I think is so important you touched on earlier. The twenty minutes rural earl urban like. What's Happ what's going on in the brain and not experience? Sure the research on nature August before. I say that we all kind of know. Nature's nice thing. I don't think there are people going out and saying well look at these horrible trees. Look at those terrible mountains. We've kind of known it's a nice thing that we feel feel better when we're outside. But in the last several decades researchers have started to substantiate this with these studies and a lot of it's been done in Japan it's a a term term they call Shinhan Yoku or forest bathing as it's translated into English. The idea is that we gain tangible health benefits from just being outside and what that means to the average person. Well let's look at the. The major benefits were talking about for brain health. Going out into. Nature Lowers levels of stress. Subjective stress levels of the stress Hormone Cortisol as we mentioned before going out into nature also lowers levels of inflammation which as we said is toxic to the brain both on the short and the long runs. We also know that going out into nature improves well-being people feel better when they go out into nature in addition to boosting immunity unity and a variety of other benefits. One of which is it. Seems to activate the sympathetic nervous system and suppress that sympathetic drive. I think that one of the benefits that is easy to overlook but has to be stated is when route nature. Were not in the city and I think that there is something so stressful about just being in that drive in the city being surrounded by air pollution being surrounded by all of this hustle and bustle. But what we found in the research which is that scientists have shown that as we mentioned before you don't have to go out into the middle of nowhere to get these benefits people can benefit from just going out into urban nature and it doesn't even have to be that challenging people can benefit get these same benefits from bringing a plant inside from buying a plant at the store. GET HIM ON. Sarah whatever is interesting to you and bring bring it into your apartment. There's been research suggesting that a photograph of nature will give you some of these benefits so it doesn't have to be this incredibly comprehensive pensive model of going to the National Park. We just need a little nature in our lives. It helps to offset stress it helps to offset inflammation at it improves our wellbeing. I love it. It doesn't cost anything either. No and from a functional perspective even demonstrating individuals giving them a photograph of a natural environment versus an urban environment immediately translates into Impulsively versus non impulsively in terms of choices right away and and with changes observed on functional. MRI scanning just looking at a picture of a forest versus a picture of an urban environment. That's you know. Pretty Amazing and direct Realization that what we look at plays a huge role. Now when we're in nature as awesome mentioned we feel pretty good. We know that but the the science is really trying to take that apart in a more granular way in terms of what are the specific messengers. That are happening. Why do we feel better? And certainly some of the oils that are found in trees that we smell these fighters sides have a role in balancing our immune system as often mentioned reducing stress as well. And you know that the take home point again it doesn't have to be you have to visit yellowstone every other week it could be a plant in your the office on your desk in the kitchen wherever it may be but you know when you recognized. Eighty seven percent of our our time is spent as Americans indoors doors with another six percent in our cars. It doesn't leave. Eighty seven percent eighty seven percent. Okay you take out nighttime sleep sleep. That's still proof. Yep and it doesn't leave a lot of time for that therefore that connection and let me say one more thing about that I think that a fallacy. I fell into early on. Is that if you're out in nature you're not being productive you're better served being inside on your computer. That's how you're GONNA get ahead in life and there's two things that the research research has shown me that I think are take home points specifically if you're listening to this New Yorker another big city one is people are more creative when they spend time outside so if you want new ideas does your company whatever it might be. This is an intervention to increase creativity. The other is your focus is better when you spend time around plants and outdoors. It's something called attention restoration. Theory the idea that you're giving your brain of break when you're looking at it to these natural elements and then it allows you to regain your focus when you go back to whatever it is you need to do. So if you're feeling stuck at work if you're trying to get ahead even if you just WanNa make good financial decisions getting outside is an intervention engine to improve that again. It's kind of counterintuitive. You'd think if I want to get ahead I need to do the actual work but you come in refreshed you come in creative and that's going to give you a major boost loosed and we live in a society where you're told to burn the midnight oil right get up really early stay up late and and get that work done and just like also said with with reference to nature sleep the more sleep the better sleep at you get the more creativity and productive. You will then be so the notion of trying to get ahead by staying up late is it's actually ultimately as well counterproductive. So I guess if I were to to to to summarize our perfect world we'd go for a steep incline hike for twenty minutes with some form of nature and be mindful of each step. We're taking the environment where we can do that. And have other people say with you and I know you're being hyperbolic but what's wrong with that. You know what's wrong with planning to do that once a week. Get with a couple of friends and go for a high go outside and walk around you accomplish three things nature exposure your relationship issues and the exercise part. I'm just is going to bang for the buck knowing busy. A lot of people are working time valley. So it's like how do we get everything at once. Exactly right this is about the offsets. It's about how do I offset the fact that I have to be in front of my screen. It's part of my job. How do I offset the fact that I have to commute That I have if a x amount of stress in my life that I may not get as much restorative sleep a how do we all set that. Well you look at what your as I mentioned before what are your entry ramps and those does include. Well I can at least week my dive a little bit. I could put that plant on my desk. I can spend twenty minutes and meditate or ten minutes twelve minutes. Whatever it may be and I can do my very best to engage exercise however you want to Offset those challenges. We all have those challenges. We live in the modern world and again it or not anti technology technology's great but to recognize what is happening with our digital experiences the confrontations that are designed we all know that they are designed to harvest our attention day in and day out. Those are profoundly detrimental to your brain wiring and of story. That's going to compromise your decision making making more impulsive and less able to achieve what you probably want to achieve as a human being and I think job one is to simply be aware of that and that's why calling it out was so important for us something else you mentioned earlier which I think just makes you a better human being but is important for your your mental and your overall wellbeing is being pathetic the power of apathy. I love of that. You do something. That's actually a good being a better human. Their health benefits it's true and Empathy is usually looked upon as doing something to help somebody else are seeing the world through their eyes but practicing empathy is selfish. And there's nothing wrong with that. Be the Dalai Lama. said that If you want others to be happy practice compassion if you want to be happy practice compassion so I I will gain great benefit by acting compassionate empathetic way and certainly one would hope that the recipient of my actions will feel benefit from that as well but I understand that it is part of Disconnection Syndrome is getting away from acting in pathetically in compassionately and being more narcissistic The Migdal plays a role in self-centeredness in distancing ourselves from others and being only interested in what we post about ourselves and having validation day a in and day out in terms of how great wonderful we are in reality is that just fosters isolation and loneliness and loneliness in and of itself is associated. Did with some significant health issues loneliness up a democrat. Now that's right about half of Americans say they sometimes are always feel alone pretty sad considering considering the fact that there are so many people in this country in this world you could literally find your New York. There are millions of people around you and yet people..

"I mean nothing is more graphic than the at this time. When we're doing this recording the fires that are happening in Australia and yet a at least segment of the population wanting wanting to deny that there are any changes in the climate that are even occurring much less the fact that we humans may be responsible for that that's short term thinking long term thinking taking embraces? This idea that what we do today will play out tomorrow and tomorrow could be ten years from now. Tomorrow is the world's were gifting to our children and their children and all to come. It's bigger picture thinking. You have a great chart in the book on a news consumption over the years. It's not had a good chart and it's not I mean you know What is it blood? Blood is what sells. There's a term for that but people are far more attracted to negative information and What the chart confirmation bias negative bias But you know that chart demonstrates demonstrates loo looking at a global news how negative it has become and we know how popular that is. You know if you turn the news off believe leaving the world continues and you're a better person for for not being engaged with that on a daily basis when you look at major causes of stress. What Americans identify defy? What was it? Forty percent and people who have higher levels of stress forty percent say the news is a big. 'cause how could it not be just turn on the news. What happens opens? How do you feel yeah so in terms of solutions things we can? Do you talked about nature outside for twenty minutes. Urban or rural environment. Doesn't that seemed to just get out there. Get in nature you also mentioned sleep and exercise. I'm curious in terms of both sleaze sleep exercise. What are the minimums? You're seeing while take sleep. There's been some debate in the years as to how much sleep you actually need. But the consensus seems to be seven seven hours for an adult starting at seven and going up maybe towards eight and I think. What's perhaps even more important than having that? Ballpark number is knowing the quality of your sleep deep. There's a lot of us get in bed and say well now my sleep timer started. But meanwhile we're scrolling through social media. We're checking that last e mail and then maybe we have trouble with something like sleep apnea and so the actual quality of the sleep is not very good so one of the things we talk about in the book is how do you know about the quality of your sleep and that might mean getting a formal sleep study. We also know that a lot of people turn to sleep AIDS medications to help them sleep and what we know about those is they may not be helping your quality either on the other hand they may actually be leading to significant health consequences. So what we're talking about in the book is how do you set yourself up.

"You're going to ultimately wire more aggressively to that part of your brain and that's what we're looking for. This interview is coming out. The Week of the book is out and it's January and January has so much weight for individuals because January is often the time that people are going forward especially a lot of listening to this podcast. They have New Year's resolutions. The things that they wanna make progress in and in the context of deciding what to focus on. There's always he's the weight of the years where things didn't go the way they wanted to. And for the person that's out there that's listening that's tried a lot of things and has been unsuccessful at some in the past life for that person who's listening right here right now. What would you wanNA tell them? When it comes to thinking about implementing these things into their life and moving forward I think gets back to Why have you failed so many times? And it's not because of lack of information by and large the books of programs people are looking at are pretty darn good you know we know most of these authors and the right good stuff but it's the action part. It's the implement imitation and staying with that decision making the commitment that no one's really looked at until now no one's really asked why. Why is it that I can't stick with this program and we have such a high rate of recidivism as it relates to going back to these maladaptive behaviors eating the wrong food giving up on your gym membership or your commitment to meeting with other people etc.? So that's what we're focused on. And Yeah I mean right now. The books coming out January worry New Year new you But it's not about what the decisions are. It's how you make those decisions. That finally need some scrutiny. Dan It's that's That's where we can come in and really help because it's really so important that people stop this self blame. Gosh I can't. Let's stick with that program. Something is wrong with me. Why am I in such a bad person that I can't I I can't help myself and I eat those wrong foods again? It's important to recognize how the deck is stacked against making good decisions. Once you recognize that then you're in a position of power you're empowered and then to say this is going to happen to me more and I'm GonNa take control and that's what the guide is all about. It's about finally regaining putting that adult back in the room and making better decisions and let me just boil this down to simple analogy here. You are at the start of this year and you're looking out over this lake and you see the other side. That's where you need to go. That's your goal. That goal might be losing weight and might be spending more time with family and might be lowering your blood pressure. And you're in this boat that you want to use to get to the the other side of the lake and that boat is your brain. It's the thing that's going to get you there but the boat is filled with holes. So until you fix the boat you're not getting to the other side of the lake and what we're talking about is fixing the boat. It's building a boat a brain that is going to get you there safely so you can stay and reach your goals. Yeah and and I'll tell you here we are still prior to publication of of brainwash and the the fact that eleven countries around the world have opted in their their publishing. This book now prior agreeing to do this without ever even seeing You know the American edition is I've never been in an experience like that before. So I think that it's time that You know people value each other. I think that's our message. Is that again. We're all in this together and we need to reconnect we need to offset every manifestation the station or a nuance of the term disconnection syndrome. Not just the the straight forward Neuro physiology part of being disconnected from the prefrontal the CORTEX but the whole notion of being disconnected from each other. We can make great things happen if we value each other if we embrace diversity and and recognize that if we all pull on the oars at the same time together we're GONNA move down. We're going to move down the the river that you mentioned earlier powerful powerful closing housing message brainwash detox your mind for clear thinking deeper relationships and lasting happiness. It's out now and you can find the link inside of the show notes. How can our listeners? Continue all the journey and participate in any other shots that you WANNA give for the book. Well easiest place to find us is brainwash wash book dot Com and will be posting all sorts of new materials blogs videos. Were on this journey with you. Were still trying to figure it out. We know this is is the right way forward but it takes ongoing commitment and as my dad said we're all in together so that's the spot to reach out to us to connect with us and to see what we're up to to see what the latest research shows about how to reverse disconnection syndrome. I do have some social accounts. My instagram is at Austin promoter and my twitter is at Austin Pearl. MD and I am at David Promoter MD on facebook and instagram accounts. As well. But I think I I the best place to connect with me is Dr Promoter. Dr Promoter Dot Com. We have robust science. And it's searchable all the stuff that we talk talk about is posted in its full. PDF form the research. Articles are all available and in a we we we see. There's a lot of interaction there. So I would like to foster that while on the note of Gratitude Austin David I wanNA thank you both for coming here and being on our podcast and sharing with our listeners. This incredible body of work that a father and son team duo using both all experienced. You've had and all the new experiences that you're bringing into the table Austin and putting together a practical geico program for people to follow to better their lives and really getting to the source of actually. What's there we give attention in the space of wellness to food food? His sometimes very controversial. It's fun thing to talk about. It's easy it's something that we all do today every day and while it's so important I often find that there's these other topics that actually could have people make much more progress in cyberspace food if they care about that like connecting with other people and getting better night's rest and they don't get get enough credit and I appreciate you both for giving them the credit that they deserve Andrew. I speaking for the two of us very grateful for these opportunities over the years and this opportunity today today to have the platform to get out The information that we think is really important and just were doing the podcast in general conversations nations like the one we're having right now are so important so that we can understand other people's perspectives and this entire world of digital technology. While it has its downsides inside has provided us with exactly this so that we can have this conversation so that other people can hear this conversation and so that we can all learn so thank you absolutely appreciate you both thank you..

"Mindset all with the goal of helping. You understand how your brain is not broken. I'm your host protein each week my team and I bring on a new guest or Guest plural who we think can help you improve your brain health. Feel better and live more. This week's guests are board certified neurologists in four time New New York Times bestselling author Dr David Parameter and his son. WHO's also joining us here in Santa Monica Studio? Dr Austin Promoter Board Certified Internal Medicine in physician and together co authors of the all new book which is out this week. Please go get it you will not regret it. Brainwash Detox Fox your mind for clear thinking deeper relationships and most importantly lasting happiness gentlemen welcome to the podcast delighted to be here. Thanks for having me. I want to say as somebody who works with his family. My my business partners Dr Mark Hyman but my sister's in the company my aunts and the company. My Dad is helping us. He's retired but he's helping US launch this new venture that we're doing it just music to my ears is to see you guys writing a book together before we jump into it. What was that process like like father and son working on a book together? We've already jumped into it. You want to start Austin sure. Well it's been straight up one of the most meaningful experiences princes of my life and I really can't emphasize that enough getting to know my dad in this context is so different from turning to a father for general advice. We've been in doing the science together waking up in the morning drinking several cups of coffee sitting down at the table looking over these studies and having this intellectual connection and that has been absolutely phenomenal but on the other hand the interpersonal dynamic of being able to work with somebody. I care about so much on a message that that is going to be so helpful to so many people has been the other really key aspect of this and honestly I knew it was going to be a big deal writing book. I've always heard is a huge process but it has been really. I don't WanNa say easy but wonderful throughout and I would tell tell you that when you have your son who thinks that Dad's cool enough that he wants to hang out with them. That's pretty pretty excited. We've done that for years. And whether it's playing frisbee golf at night with lighted Frisbees or who knows what we've done a lot of stuff together over the years now. This becomes an incredible project with a huge goal Truthfully the the messaging of our book evolved in the process of writing the book What promulgated the original idea was both of us being physicians and working with patients doing the very best we can to learn as much information as as possible then imparting that information to the patient and then experiencing an incredible level of frustration because the patient then doesn't implement implement that information so we wanted to design the initial plan was to design the bridge between information and action so that causes us then to evaluate evaluate where the breakdown happens? Why is it that people can know what is the best decision to make and yet they don't do that and you know we ask physicians and I think in general people tend to point fingers and say what's wrong with that person who's making bad decisions? Why don't they eat less? Carbohydrates or whatever the goal may be and I think that what we learned through the research that we've done for brainwash is that there are many trappings of our modern in society. Our modern world. That really stacks the deck against you being able to make better decisions. So yeah there's great information Out there you know. There are plenty of author's writing great books and You know we have the monitor shells books by everybody. You know my books. I think. Harry Good Information Dr Hammonds putting out amazing information but what we realized is that these books and programs are useless unless they are implemented. What good does it do to have the Information Mason? So we've spent a year really doing the deep dive into how people make decisions. which then overrides leads? All of the rest of the information that's out there finally allowing people to rein in I the influences that are present in our modern world that corroding their ability to make these decisions and then more importantly once. It's recognized how to fix that so that people can be satisfied can look in the mirror and realize their goals realize their weight loss. There whatever it is that there may be sort of piggyback off what you said I wanna read a passage sentence from the book. Our brains are being gravely manipulated resulting in behaviors. That leave us more lonely anxious depressed distressful illness prone and overweight than ever before. So you talked about those two aspects which is how do we help and support people to actually make these decisions and implement change change in their life to achieve to achieve whatever goal that they wanNA focus on. But let's start off with what is actually hijacking brain. That makes it difficult to do. So can you describe landscape landscape landscape and the state of threats that our brains are under today. Sure will. Let's start with one of the most important and probably most straightforward of these. It's food food. We need food. We need to eat food to keep going. But what is it that we're putting into our bodies. All a recent study showed that sixty eight percent of the foods that people eat and buy in. The store have added sugar. We know sugar isn't really a good thing for us but the question has to be. What is it doing to our thinking? What is it doing to our Raines? And this is the question that I think were now able to answer. But we haven't been looking into nearly enough. What is sugar doing to our brains? Will Sugar Fosters Inflammation inflammation which listeners know is not good for the body. Chronic inflammation has been implicated in a variety of problems. Things like heart disease. Things like Alzheimer's disease what we're understanding. Now is that inflammation this process that sugar up regulates changes are thinking. So let's let that sink in. It's not that it changes are are thinking in the long run. It changes are thinking right now. Inflammation has been shown in several recent trials to bias our decision-making towards short-term impulsive thinking thinking so to put that into context if you're eating a diet that increases inflammation you're going to make more short term oriented decisions it's like eating a diet that increases inflammation choosing the wrong foods to be eating and that transcends just diet gets into other things if you're somebody who struggles bulls with all nine shopping now. You have a diet that increases inflammation you're going to be picking the short term reward and that means your your shopping cart might be filling up all all mind with things that you don't need so again. Food is one of those entry points. It's something that has been made incredibly palatable over the years and while that means it might tastes good. We need to appreciate that. It is activating these circuits within our bodies within our brains that are making decisions more impulsive more short term oriented did and in the big picture taking us away from the decisions that will lead us to health and will lead to happiness and let me add before we move on from food and Because it is it is a very important topic because we we recognize that in a simplistic model there. There are two areas of the brain that are involved in decision making the prefrontal cortex which is the more advanced area. If I may and the more primitive if I may a Migdal Migdal and you know there's a balance between the two We tend to With inflammation unfortunately have more input from the primitive Amila Adila and as such are decisions are not really looking at the future as opposed to if we can reconnect to the prefrontal cortex and that is the area of the brain that allows us to participate in a process of thinking of the long term consequences of our actions. Today it allows us has to be more empathetic. It allows us to be more compassionate it helps to tamp down this sense of US versus them. That comes from the Amila Uggla so we're trying to reconnect to the prefrontal. CORTEX and a as per our discussion of food and inflammation inflammation absolutely absolutely threatens. That connection and I have to say that a thought came to me this morning while in the shower some of my best thoughts come to me and shower and having read the New York Times this morning they had an interesting article about what's going on in Brazil with reference to deforestation the Amazon. Not a good thing. I think most people would agree. Agree with that But that said what has happened to the thought process around the globe is influenced by the globalization of the western pro inflammatory diet that as this western diet a finds its way to every corner of the globe. It's changing aging. How people across our planet think and behave locking them more into short-term reward based decision making and away way from long term consequence based thinking and being empathetic towards their neighbour towards the future cells towards the planet? So it the our discussion just about food could take you know hours and hours of that would be actually a good thing but and so in a way you almost saying just to like break down very clearly lake doc sugar and other processed foods which he talked to most people may say. I don't really eat sugar. I'm not eating sugar but Andrew. It's in our food. It's in everything already. It's it's already in your pasta sauce and it's already in so many of the health products that you're getting even if it's pure cane sugar other stuff it's so pervasive that's their. This is encouraging the implement the factor actor of inflammation the cycle of inflammation body. And that can make you more selfish wars and said and that is that you know it's actively added down. This is not a conspiracy theory. We know that the statistics indicate that around sixty eight percent of the one point. Two million food sold in. The grocery store have added sweetener. That's you know I don't know if we ever say that's a fact somebody may say another world is flat. But it's you know if you take the foods and look at them you look at the labels that's what you see. You might not see sugar you might see a high fructose corn syrup or You know people think that will. Maybe it's okay. 'cause it's cane sugar or where it came from Organically raised honeybees or or Maple Syrup that was growing on trees that people prayed around. Or whatever. It's sugar and it is is pro inflammatory. And it is distancing your ability to make good decisions. This is part of a larger thing. That's inside of the book of the new normal. That's there can you talk to us about the new normal. The new reality that we find ourselves today. Food is one part of that but there's a greater topic that's part of that too. Yeah that's such a good point. So where are we at where we at where we're living in the United States today well seventy. Plus percent of American adults are overweight or obese sixty plus percent of American adults suffer from a chronic disease rates have anxiety around eighteen percent of American adults rates of depression are somewhere somewhere around six percent but seem.

"Can I comment also on that empathy piece. We know that more physician empathy predicts better patient outcomes and better compliance if you have a physician fission who demonstrates empathy. You're more likely as a patient to take your pills into follow through on the plant and we don't know exactly why this is but my hypothesis. This is Bob. We know that when we're having good relationships with other people that increases oxytocin. What does oxytocin do all? It does a variety of things depending on how what's given and where it exists in the body but in the brain one of the roles for oxytocin is it connects the prefrontal cortex and the amid Dula. So why is that important. And well that connection between these two parts which are really more of a circuit than individual entities. It predicts people's ability to regulate their emotions to be able to make well-thought-out decisions and what disabled that connection it's stress and when we have high levels of stress in the brain and the body in animal animal studies at least they show that the neurons in the prefrontal CORTEX and wither and die which is not a good thing on the other hand. And here's the crazy thing. The neurons Indian Indian Migdal the emotional response center. They spread out and get stronger to win. We're under chronic stress for long periods of time this this literally servers that connection between the two regions of the brain and oxytocin seems to strengthen it to your point again about early life trauma. They've done studies and actually a recent study in two thousand eighteen through. Mit and pen showed that children aged four to seven with more life trauma. Things like divorce. Things like significant illness. Bliss showed a decrease connection between the PREFRONTAL CORTEX and the middle and that predicted more aggressive type behaviors. Though this is incredibly significant is is that stress seems to disable our ability to make good decisions by uncoupling these two parts of the brain that have to be in communication for US to be able to regulate our emotions and be able to handle stress. If we could. I wanted to talk about. Just maybe one or two more points of emphasis. That you guys have highlighted. Good how we can improve this connection again in one of these. It's kind of it. Might sound a little bit counterintuitive which is more time alone quiet right time but let's talk a little bit about that well. Most of what we talked about in that regard has to do with meditation. And you know. We're all aware that the amount of research with respect to mindfulness. Meditation is now really robust Even a prayer a win we tried to keep our taught process focused and Alleviate distraction there's some powerful things that happened. The prefrontal CORTEX lights up and connection to the prefrontal CORTEX and the top down connection of the prefrontal cortex over other areas like the Amiga is enhanced as well. So that's the value of meditation and it really is across the board over various mindfulness practices whether it's Paying attention to your breathing or reciting a mantra entre or being involved in deep religious prayer. It all pretty much does the same thing. There's subtle nuances of of each form. But it really brings the adult old back into the room and let me just talk about what that means for a moment when when the prefrontal cortex is not in communication with the AMIGA as well a- as much as it could be it's as if you know the parents are saying to the teenagers Who are going? Invite thirty of their closest friends hands over to the house for the weekend We're going to go on a cruise. Come what may enjoy. And how's that can workout. Well you know the the the value of reconnecting of off loading this disconnection syndrome. It brings the adult back into the room. To say there is no monster under the bed. Don't get it all excited. Everything's Okay you could go to sleep now. Calming Things Down A. We've all had experiences in our lives. Where suddenly the amid all the just lit lit up and By the grace of God we were able to reign it in fact I talk about one in the book. I was in Costco in line with my wife. Getting Ready. Ready to check out there was one more thing that she needed Kinda does that. That's all right. I and she ran off to get it and it and and when she brought it back it was still wasn't our time. I'm to to go to the cashier. So everything was cool but the guy behind her in line had a hissy fit and I didn't. He was barking at me. And that's that's cool cool. I don't mind that but he started to lay into my wife and that it might make the logistics Got Plug in and I I felt myself Losing Control and approached him and Somehow or another the adult came back in the room and said that this is not a not a good thing to do and I was grateful that I could reign it in but what we recognize as many people will these days have actions which we know about which demonstrate that there is not reigned in this activity. That doesn't demonstrate the adult felt in the room and there's hell to pay when those things happen and we need to bring more measured activity back into our lives that we can get along better and you know I think early on in our time together as well. What's different about this this new book in it? We've given out the nutritional information. Well well maybe we should back down on our gluten. Maybe a sugar is not so good for us all these things but this is higher order information this is about not not that glutinous bad and carbs. Refined carbs are bad but what to do with that information how to implement and how to be measured in our responses and in as as we move forward in time we really really need to think about our actions Y- and before I let you guys go. I WanNa talk about this because it's never happened on our show uh-huh before but we're at a studio. We have a lot of guitars laying around and you guys picked them up. It started doing your thing jamming making music which was just awesome. Awesome to hear is super aspiring. And I'm just like and I'm just putting it out there. You have a bothersome book by their son album to be next. But let's talk a little bit about. I've been wanting to do a show on this for quite some time now are definitely will at some point but how does music potentially play into this as far as healing connection in the brain lapin written about that other there is book out called Your Brain on music. And we've certainly seen the book called the Mozart Effect Affect People talking about the Mozart effect turns the developing brain and music really recruits a lot of different brain areas. You know there's the the pride of lobe function that has to be integrated in terms of the dexterity and the inactivating end grams at store throughout the brain for forming cords and and certainly memory for is involved and for the particular song or the position of your fingers etc I would say what I find Most appealing about it is ultimately. I'm not playing the guitar. Guitar is playing me I closed my eyes. And it's a state where I know. Obviously it's coming from me but the guitar music is changing my mood. It's taking me to a place and it's it's hard for me to really understand understand. Sometimes whether I'm playing it's actually playing me. But then when we played together and it's a wonderful communication it is it is a relationship chip That is ethereal. It is it's extremely powerful. It's I wouldn't say it's hallucinogenic but I I believe that there are things that are activated in the brain that might well be on par with that. Yeah yeah that's awesome and this has been awesome. It's been an awesome experience or your book is phenomenal. I think it's definitely timely and I really do I. I know it's going to reach a lot of people but I hope that it can help to to create that shift that we really need right now.
