“The body has its own inherent healing system and repair system. We do everything to actually screw it up. How we live, what we eat, the fact we don’t exercise, all the junk we eat, the environmental toxins, the stresses, all these things muck up our body’s own innate intelligence to repair and heal and renew.”

Dr. Mark Hyman Discusses how Personalized Medicine is Revolutionizing Healthcare

On Passion Struck, Dr. Mark Hyman discussed the future of medicine and the profound impact of personalized medicine on our health and well-being. Personalized medicine, also known as precision medicine, is a groundbreaking approach that considers an individual’s unique genetic makeup, lifestyle, and environmental factors to tailor medical treatments and interventions. This approach is transforming how we view and manage our health, offering a more proactive and targeted approach to healthcare.

Young Forever by Dr. Mark Hyman for the passion struck podcast recommended book list

Traditionally, medicine has been focused on treating diseases rather than addressing the underlying causes. However, with the advent of personalized medicine, we can now delve deeper into our biology and understand the root causes of diseases. By gathering extensive data on an individual’s genetics, transcriptome, proteome, microbiome, and metabolome, we can gain valuable insights into their unique biology and make informed decisions about their health.

One of the key components of personalized medicine is the use of personal health and lab data. Through advanced testing and analysis, individuals can track their biomarkers and comprehensively understand their health status. This data provides valuable information about their metabolic health, nutrient deficiencies, and inflammation levels. Armed with this knowledge, individuals can make intentional choices about their diet, lifestyle, and supplementation to optimize their health and prevent the onset of chronic diseases.

Function Health, a platform co-founded by Dr. Hyman, is at the forefront of this personalized medicine revolution. It offers over 110 biomarker tests that comprehensively view an individual’s health. By tracking these biomarkers over time, individuals can monitor their progress and make necessary adjustments to their health optimization plan. Function Health also provides expert insights and guidance to help individuals make informed decisions about their health.

Incorporating personalized medicine into medical education is a crucial step in transforming healthcare. Currently, there is a significant educational gap in medical training when it comes to nutrition and personalized medicine. However, efforts are underway to change this. Dr. Hyman’s nonprofit organization, the Food Fix Campaign, is working to mandate the inclusion of nutrition in medical school curricula and licensing exams. By equipping future healthcare professionals with the knowledge and tools of personalized medicine, we can ensure that patients receive the best possible care tailored to their unique needs.

Personalized medicine is not limited to the treatment of diseases. It also plays a vital role in preventive healthcare. By identifying potential health risks and imbalances early on, individuals can take proactive steps to optimize their health and prevent the onset of chronic diseases. This approach empowers individuals to become the CEOs of their own health, making informed choices about their diet, exercise, sleep, stress management, and more.
