November 2022 Ask Mark Anything

Hey everyone! The November Ask Mark Anything is here and available exclusively to the Dr. Hyman+ Community. Over the past month, our team collected questions from the community and found the most popular topics to ask Dr. Hyman. Check out the video below!

Topics Discussed:

  • Do you have any recommendations for getting your taste and smell back after having COVID-19? (00:34) 
  • Is it possible to have reoccurring throat phlegm from acid reflux? If so, what do you recommend to help with the reflux? (1:41) 
  • What are the possible causes of mucus in your bowels? (5:23) 
  • Given the decrease in the nutritional value of grocery store foods, am I better off buying the non-organic local produce (and waxing well) or continuing to avoid all pesticides and buying the organic produce at the grocery store? (7:12) 
  • What is your take on drinking ozone water daily, and can it help heal the leaky gut? (12:12)
  • Do you have any recommendations for blood work or testing for post-partum women? Is there anything specific that is important to focus on? (14:21) 
  • We have heard you discuss having a high level of fasting insulin, but is there a situation where your fasting insulin can be too low?  What could cause that, and what is the optimal range? (18:25) 
  • We have heard you recommend NMN and NR supplementation. One of our community practitioners asks: Are you concerned that taking it would signal the body that there is an exogenous source and no longer a need to produce it and shut down its endogenous production of NAD? (23:14) 
  • Can IBS be cured, or is it more about managing and controlling the symptoms? (25:23) 
  • What can you share about your experience at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health? (28:40)
