We live in a culture where it takes a lot of effort to be healthy. Not only are our default choices unhealthy, but with most of us so busy, we don’t have the time to take on another project, let alone our health. At the same time, our current medical system is out of sync with the common problems people are suffering with today. It is a crisis care system, utilizing drugs and surgery to treat health problems, while having no tools to prevent disease or to keep people well. To truly be well— not just free of disease— we need to go beyond medications. We must address diet and exercise, establish good sleep habits, manage stress, decrease chemical exposure and be aware of the many other factors that impact health. Dr. Lipman examines these many components of health, sharing vital tips on being well and staying healthy.
For years now, there’s been no shortage of talk about increasing lifespan, boosting longevity, and living to a ripe old age. And that’s all well and good. But we really should be focusing on increasing our healthspan – the length of time we’re able to remain disease-free or, at a minimum, able to do the things we want to do in our senior years. Our bodies are perfectly capable of remaining healthy and vigorous, and our brains can absolutely stay clear and sharp — if we give them what they need. Dr Lipman shares the essential habits and practices to increase healthspan and stay feeling young and staying vital as we age.
Vegan, Paleo, Keto, Mediterranean or Dash? Low fat, low carb or high fat? Every year there seems to be a new trendy diet. While some swear by the newest thing, most are confused about making healthy and effective eating choices. So which diet is best? According to Dr. Frank Lipman, there’s no one right diet for everyone. Biochemically, we are as unique as our fingerprints. What works for one person may do harm to the next. Read More >
Why? Food is more than just carbs, protein, fat and phytochemicals. Food is information, containing “instructions” which are communicated directly to our genes and providing potent dietary signals that directly influence the metabolic programming of our cells. Eating the right foods for you will send instructions to your genes that facilitate good health. Eating the wrong foods, sends messages for disease. That’s why it’s essential to develop a healthier relationship with food, Dr Lipman shares the latest science and decades of helping patients find which way of eating works for them. Read Less ^
Within each of us there is an ecosystem composed of trillions of microbes called the microbiome. It is a community of bacteria that outnumbers our human cells by a factor of 10 to 1. It’s no exaggeration to say that each of us is actually more bacteria than human! Read More >
These bacteria are your crucial partners in digesting food, supporting your immune system, protecting your gut, keeping your mind sharp, stabilizing your moods and even maintaining a healthy weight.

In this essential talk, Dr. Lipman shares tips on how to keep your microbiome in tip top shape to protect your brain, your moods and your metabolism. Read Less ^
