Mahanth is Editor
Sometimes I come across content that is so fantastic, not much editorial gloss is needed and I elect to step back and just strongly encourage you to watch it. We should lament the pitfalls of modern medicine, where our collective lifestyles and environmental destruction cause terrible chronic conditions, and the misguided response is to place patients on pharmaceuticals often for the rest of their lives effectively in a lifetime subscription model we are told you cannot safely get out of. Side effects and other damage are additional costs of doing business on top of the cash out of pocket. But where is prevention in all of this? What about treating the root causes of the chronic syndromes rather than just the end symptoms?
The answer is simple. There isn’t easy money to be made in prevention and root level interventions. Fortunately, some researchers are plowing on anyway into natural remedies, what to eat, when to eat and sleep during the 24-hour cycle for optimal brain and body function. One of the top leaders in the study of intermittent fasting and Circadian rhythms is Dr. Satchin Panda of the Salk Institute, who is interviewed here for the excellent Huberman Lab podcast. This is a must-watch for anyone who cares about health and wellness, as there are many gems of wisdom here. The Indian-American connection is an added bonus. There is so much more to learn, but here’s an excellent start if these topics are new to you. Finally, a personal note: I have made lifestyle changes based on Dr. Panda’s work, and have noticed improvements in my own life. I wish nothing but the same for you.
