Protecting Your NEST with Dr. Tony Hampton

Jul 2, 2021

Welcome to Protecting Your Nest with Dr. Tony Hampton. Dr. Nicholas Norwitz is a researcher and scientist. He earned his PhD from Oxford University in only 2 years and is currently working on his MD at Harvard Medical School. His research expertise is ketosis and brain aging; however, he has published scientific papers on topics ranging from neuroscience to heart disease to gastrointestinal health to genetics to bone health to diabetes. He is also co-author of The New Mediterranean Diet Cookbook. He is on a mission to reform our current healthcare system and to educate as many people as possible about the realities of metabolic health.

In their discussion, Tony and Nicholas talk about the social tension involved in making a seemingly extreme dietary change, gastrointestinal issues and the impact that diet has on said issues, the importance of N=1 experimentation to determine what your body responds positively to, the need for a priority shift in the medical field toward preventative care—and a shift in the incentive structure that would enable this type of care—and advancements in personalized medicine and the need for this type of medicine to continue to come to the fore.

Additionally, Nicholas shares his perspectives on why people get sick, the main factors leading to compromised health, the standard of care, and what makes a doctor an exceptional practitioner.
