Taking her expertise in the mind/body connection several steps further, Joan Borysenko explains the new research in interpersonal neurobiology, where, for example, our minds also affect those around us, and in epigenetics, where events in our lives – and even in our ancestor’s lives – can cause changes in our genetic make-up. In this enlightening interview, originally webcast on April 6, 2016, Joan also discusses the results of her scientific investigation into a healthy diet, in which she discovered that humans’ dietary needs vary enough that no one diet works for everyone. However, she also discovered the importance of a plant-based diet to feed the microbes in our body, which science now understands outnumber our own cells.

Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., is a distinguished pioneer in integrative medicine and a world-renowned expert in the mind/body connection. She is a Harvard-trained medical scientist, licensed psychologist and New York Times best-selling author, with more than a dozen books to her credit. Her work has been foundational in an international healthcare revolution that recognizes the role of meaning and the spiritual dimensions of life as an integral part of health and healing.

Saying she doesnt wanna eat "too many carbs" when talking about fruit proves to me shes way off base. This is why people get tricked into believing they should only eat a small amount of fruit. Because supposedly very well educated people like this demonize it. They demonize the #1 type of food for the human physiology. Want real truth, just look up Robert Morse.

It was SO great to hear that one diet doesn't fit all. Over the past three years of trying one diet after another I finally realized that what works for those diet book authors (who often claim to bear the secret to perfect health and longevity) isn't necessarily right or true for me. Now back to listening to my body and intuition and I've finally regained my strength, energy and happy mind. However, I do think there are some universal truths such as avoiding processed foods and eating lots of veggies to feed our microbes. I'm going to read her book because I'm fascinated with the subject and I appreciate her open-minded stance of doing what's right for yourself. Thank you for this program!
