This episode of the show features an exclusive interview with the legendary Dr. Andrew Weil. The interview centers around the new science of psychedelics and why current research plays such an important role in crafting a new model for overall integrative medicine. Dr. Weil lends his insight and expertise into the areas of psychedelic research that go hand in hand with his decades long work into alternative medicine and overall well being. Dr. Weil has seen 50 years of psychedelic research go through many peaks and valleys and we’re honored to have gotten his input for this amazing interview.
Intro rant – Documentaries on dysfunctional anti-heroes
Andrew Weil, M.D., is a world-renowned leader and pioneer in the field of integrative medicine, a healing oriented approach to health care which encompasses body, mind, and spirit.
The inspiring Dr. Molly Maloof comes by the kitchen table to educate, inspire and invigorate me into new ways of looking at the what real holistic health looks like for the 21st Century. Extending beyond that I also found our talk inspired me into looking at my own health and complete physiological package. She is brilliant, articulate, thoughtful, very well educated, gorgeous and has a life force to aspire to. I’d love to have Molly be a regular health contributor on the podcast and hopefully this is just the first of many episodes together.
INTRO TOPIC – the quest for equanimity.
Dr. Molly Maloof’s goal is to maximize human potential by dramatically extending human healthspan through scientific wellness, technology, & educational media. When she saw the digital revolution transforming medicine she knew she had to be a part of it. Since 2012 she has worked as an independent advisor and strategy consultant to over 18 technology companies in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Her fascination with innovation has transferred into her private medical practice, which is focused on providing health optimization and personalized medicine to entrepreneurs, investors, and executives. Her iterative programs take the quantified self to the extreme through comprehensive testing of clinical chemistry, metabolomics, microbiome, biometrics, and genomic markers. She favors the use of food over pharmacology and believes the next frontier in health tech is the exploration of our “inner media.”
