Which Program is Best for Me?

“Dr. Hyman, I’m ready to start a path toward my best health, but there are so many options out there,” writes this week’s house call. “I’m choosing among The Blood Sugar Solution, The 10-Day Detox Diet, and the Eat Fat, Get Thin plans, but I’m unsure which is the best one to serve my needs.” […]

Salmon Salad Wraps

Get These Toxins Out of Your House

“Dr. Hyman, I recently read how endocrine disruptors like environmental toxins can interfere with your hormones,” writes this week’s house call. “I’m really freaked out.

The Missing Fat You Need to Survive and Thrive

“Dr. Hyman, I’ve heard so much contradictory information about omega 3 fats,” writes this week’s house call. “Some studies show they help everything while others argue they don’t do much of anything. What’s the real story here?” As I often say, food is information, not just calories. Food influences gene function, hormones, your immune system […]
