4 Integrative Medicine Podcast Recommendations

As an integrative medicine physician, I’m always on the lookout for resources that can complement the journey of health and wellness. 


For general resources on integrative medicine, I recommend you visit the Resources page. And, last year, I published 5 Integrative Medicine Book Recommendations. Today, I want to share four outstanding podcasts that will add immense value to your life. Each of these podcasts offers a unique perspective on health, nutrition, and overall well-being.


As a nutritionist, Simon Hill does a fantastic job in 'The Proof' podcast, where he dives deep into the world of nutrition science. His discussions are grounded in research, yet he has a way of making complex concepts accessible and exciting. Whether you’re a nutrition nerd or just beginning to explore healthy eating, Simon’s insights will surely enlighten you.


This episode focuses on the core areas of cardiovascular, metabolic, and gut health, which are central to integrative medicine. It delves into the importance of nutrition in maintaining and improving these aspects of health, making it a great starting point for listeners interested in these topics.


Dr. Peter Attia’s podcast is an exceptional resource for anyone interested in the science of longevity and healthspan. With his background in medicine and personal commitment to wellness, Dr. Attia explores various topics from metabolic health to mental well-being. His analytical approach to health and longevity is both inspiring and educational.


This gives a good sense of the type of podcast for which Dr Attia has become famous. It is a deep dive on Zone 2 training with a renowned expert. It goes deep into the science of Zone 2 and how it impacts metabolic health. It is also representative of Dr Attia’s focus on exercise as the prime ‘drug’ to improve longevity. 


Dr. Mark Hyman can be a bit “out there” sometimes, but he is a leader in the field of functional medicine, and his podcast is a treasure trove of information on holistic health. He has a knack for explaining how our lifestyle choices, especially food, impact our health. His discussions often feature other health experts, providing a well-rounded view on health and wellness.


In this episode, Dr. Hyman talks with Dr. Elizabeth Boham, Dr. Todd LePine, and Dr. George Papanicolaou about the importance of addressing the root causes of symptoms for true healing. This approach is central to functional medicine and can be particularly enlightening for those interested in integrative health practices


Hosted by Dr. Andrew Huberman, this podcast is a must-listen for anyone interested in neuroscience and how our brain functions influence our health. Dr. Huberman has a talent for breaking down complex neurological concepts into understandable and actionable insights—but beware, these episodes are long, very involved deep dives. If that’s your thing, you’ll love it.


Depending on what your interests are, there is surely a Huberman Lab episode that covers it in depth. But to round out the recommendations above, here is an episode for those interested in exercise, movement, and its importance in an integrative medicine approach. In this episode, Dr. Andrew Huberman explains how the brain and nervous system control muscle tissue and how this knowledge can be leveraged for muscle maintenance, growth, and recovery.
