Educating ourselves and staying up to date with the latest in health and wellness research is an awesome way to empower ourselves to take actionable steps to improve our health. At Index, we’re always looking for the latest scoops and hot topics in the industry.
There are a lot of podcasts out there related to health and wellness. This is our comprehensive list of the best (in our opinion) podcasts to stay up to date with the latest in health and wellness.
Which podcasts do Chris, our Chief Medical Officer, and Holly, our in-house Nutritionist listen to?
The Doctors Farmacy - Mark Hyman
Let’s start with the podcast that every member of Index Health independently said they listen to regularly…
As Dr. Mark Hyman continues to see an ever-increasing burden of chronic disease which is primarily driven by our diet and food system he continues to produce educational content to teach his listeners how we got to this place, and where to go from here.
His podcasts delve into not only physical health topics, but also the culture around our diet and food production. Dr. Hyman discusses agricultural and health care policies that perpetuate poor health within our society.
For consistent, up-to-date information regarding the food and health industry and their direct impact on your health, we HIGHLY recommend this podcast.
The Drive - Peter Attia
Peter Attia is a physician and a man who’s interested in a bunch of things that he’s spent years writing about. He wanted to bring his knowledge to his audience to help them optimize their performance, health, longevity, critical thinking, and life. Peter invites a high caliber of guests onto the show, with the likes of sleep expert and neuroscientist Matthew Walker,along with many other notable experts in the field.
‘The Drive’ is a play on two main themes, the first being the exploration of topics, which can be compared to going on a drive without necessarily knowing where you’re going, exploring the roads, getting a bit lost, and finding yourself along the way. The other is the drive to improve and work on ourselves. Peter Attia also just really likes driving, so ‘The Drive’ it is!
Revolution Health Radio - Chris Kresser
