11 a.m. | Effortless Healing with Dr. Joseph Mercola

A well-known physician, Dr Mercola’s website is one of the most visited natural-health sites in the world – a site dedicated to educating readers about ways to improve their health.

He is one of the world’s leading advocates for using food as medicine. In this program he helps people struggling with their weight and chronic conditions to make the connection to their food and lifestyle choices.

He’s an educator committed to teaching people how to cultivate their own power to heal. He believes the body is designed to be healthy without drugs, and in giving it what it needs to thrive, so it can regenerate itself without any outside interventions. This innate restorative tendency is what he calls “effortless healing.”

Rather than suggesting people rely on expensive and potentially dangerous drugs Dr. Mercola empowers people to become their own healers and helps viewers understand how they can effortlessly modify their diet to achieve their health goals.

He covers the impact of gluten and sugar on the body, the benefits of intermittent fasting and exercise, and provides Effortless Healing Action plans throughout. He clearly outlines changes viewers can make in their lives, from eliminating certain foods to adding others, and illustrates the changes that could result.

He puts forward principles of healing to arm viewers with information to choose more skillfully what and when to eat, what to drink, how and how often to move, and how to remove the roadblocks to wellness – such as subpar food and contaminated beverages – so that their body can do what it was designed to do effortlessly: stay well.

9 p.m. | Brain Maker with David Perlmutter, MD

Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise – from children diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem: Astonishing new research is revealing that the health of your brain is, to an extraordinary degree, dictated by the state of your microbiome – the vast population of organisms that live in your body and out -number your own cells ten to one. What’s taking place in your intestines today is determining your risk for any number of brain-related conditions.

Fresh off his huge public television pledge blockbuster, BrainChange, first released in December 2013, Dr. Perlmutter explains in Brain Maker the potent interplay between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how the microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on lifestyle choices, how it can become “sick,” and how nurturing gut health through a few easy strategies can alter your brain’s destiny for the better. With simple dietary recommendations and a highly practical program of five steps to improving gut ecology, Brain Maker opens the door to unprecedented brain health potential.
