Conversation With Mark Hyman, MD

Integrative Medicine: A Clinician's Journal (IMCJ): Thank you very much for taking the time today to talk to us. IMCJ, this is a very important topic for us. Food is a big part of Integrative Medicine. I was very interested when I saw your book, it really discusses how food impacts our health. Dr. Hyman: This book called "Food Fix: How to Save Our Health, Our Economy, Our Communities, and Our Planet One Bite at a Time." After thirty years of seeing patients with chronic disease, mostly caused by food, I realized that I couldn't cure diabetes or heart disease or autoimmune diseases, or a whole host of chronic illnesses that affect six out of 10 Americans in my office. Diabetes and chronic disease are cured on the farm, in our food production system, in the grocery store, in the kitchen. I began to ask myself, "If the food my patients were eating made them sick, why were they eating that food?" It is the food system. Then I asked myself as a good functional medicine doctor, "why is the food system producing food that destroys human and planetary health?"
