About Us

Jason Wachob, founder & CEO of mindbodygreen, shares motivational interviews with the people shaping the wellness world: pioneers, cutting-edge thinkers, and entrepreneurs who are changing the conversation. Topics include health, fitness, nutrition, self-help and more. It’s not scripted, it's not the Today show, and there are no prepared talking points. You'll hear the real stories behind the biggest names in wellness: their personal journeys, their struggles, and what got them to where they are today. You’ll be inspired, you’ll be moved, and you’ll hear firsthand about how wellness transforms lives.

Signs of inflammation you may be overlooking with Will Cole, D.C., IFMCP

A leading functional medicine practitioner, Will Cole, D.C., IFMCP, is an expert when it comes to analyzing the underlying factors of chronic disease. In his practice, he customizes health programs for thyroid issues, autoimmune conditions, hormonal dysfunctions, digestive disorders, and brain problems. And with this impressive resume, it’s no surprise he was named one of the top 50 functional-medicine and integrative doctors in the nation. When Founder and Co-CEO, Jason Wachob, sat down with Cole on this episode of the mindbodygreen podcast, he was so excited to hear details about his upcoming book, The Inflammation Spectrum. In this book, Cole educates people on how they differ in terms of an inflammatory response, as well as urges us to discover how our bodies respond to certain lifestyle practices, both positively and negatively. Another component Cole mentions is the fact that there are certain markers of inflammation that might look “normal” to the average eye, when really ...

How to take control of your health with Bindiya Gandhi, M.D.

When it comes to working with her patients, Bindiya Gandhi, M.D. has a goal of getting to the root cause of certain issues and making patients feel healthy in the most natural way possible. As a family medicine physician with a passion for functional medicine, Gandhi couples her traditional education and training with a nutritional medicine lens, making her a unique, cutting-edge professional in the medical field. Gandhi offers some great tips and advice (you’ll seriously want to listen to this episode of the podcast with a notebook and pen in hand), on a variety of topics we can approach with a “food is medicine” mentality, ranging from balancing hormones, taming inflammation, and fertility. Another topic she covers as she chats with Olessa Pindak, mindbodygreen's Chief Content Officer, is how she advises her patients to optimize their gut health. Gut health should be a priority, Gandhi states, because of its ability to affect so many other processes in our bodies. When our gut ...

How to biohack safely & effectively with Molly Maloof, M.D.

These days, it’s not uncommon for people to strive to be more proactive about their health and prevent diseases before even the preliminary signs of an illness arise. Molly Maloof, M.D., a personalized medicine physician and one of our speakers at this year’s revitalize event, works with the top Silicon Valley investors and executives on how to seek empowerment and prescribe health in all aspects of life—not just for the body, but for the mind and community around us. On this episode of the mindbodygreen podcast, Jason Wachob, founder and co-CEO of mindbodygreen, sat down with Maloof to chat about how we can truly optimize our health, rather than trying to seek quick fixes whenever we’re feeling not-so-great.

How to cope with existential anxiety with Anna Yusim, M.D.

Anna Yusim, M.D., works with many patients who come to her with the full spectrum of human issues, but one of the most common she sees is existential anxiety, a paralyzing fear for people who face it in their everyday lives. An award-winning psychiatrist, Yusim couples her medical practice with spiritual principles in order to treat this anxiety, which is a combination that truly promotes holistic healing for our minds, bodies, and souls. Olessa Pindak, mindbodygreen's CCO, sat down with Yusim on this week’s episode of the podcast to chat with her about the specific tools she utilizes during a psychotherapy session. She affirms that feeling anxious about our human existence is completely normal. Her first step to coping is to recognize that every human being has this same fear at some point in their lives (sometimes at many points in their lives, in fact), and that it’s a completely valid fear to have. Yusim is no stranger to supplements, and she believes that they can be helpful ...

While Heather Moday, M.D., is an allergist and immunologist.

143: How to raise future CEOs with Esther Wojcicki

EIf there’s one thing journalist and teacher, Esther Wojcicki, knows, it’s how to empower children. She has raised some pretty successful daughters—Susan, Anne, and Janet—who have grown up to become the CEO of YouTube, the co-founder and CEO of 23andMe, and the assistant professor at the UCSF with a Ph.D. and master’s in public health, respectively (Janet also spoke at our revitalize event in 2015!). Not only has Wojcicki learned the importance of empowerment in raising her own family, but she makes it a point to empower the children she teaches in school. A firm believer in making mistakes, Wojcicki knows how to create uplifting environments where kids can flourish and take healthy risks. When I sat down with Wojcicki on this week’s episode of the podcast, we chatted about her book, How To Raise Successful People, as well as the advice she would give to parents who want to empower their own children. Her instruction was simple, yet has remained with me since: treat your kids l...

Why meat isn't the problem with Diana Rodgers, R.D.

When Diana Rodgers, R.D., found out that she had celiac disease at 26, all of her digestion issues during childhood finally made sense. Growing up, she was underweight, frequently sick, and struggled with blood sugar related issues. These symptoms seemed to be a result of her gluten intolerance, but even when she incorporated gluten-free alternatives into her diet, she still found herself unsatisfied and, oftentimes, ravenous. It was only when she starting incorporating more fat (think raw milk and butter) that she started to see real progress in her digestion. Even further into her journey with different diets, it wasn't until she came across Robb Wolf's The Paleo Solutionthat she finally found the golden ticket for her eating lifestyle: real foods, less processed carbs. Her one takeaway after her own experience and completing her nutrition degree? Stay away from processed foods and don’t be afraid to up your intake of animal products. While this rule of thumb may sound simple, it...

How to boost longevity at the cellular level—with Alyssa Dweck, M.D.

According to Alyssa Dweck, M.D., enhancing women’s quality of life as they age makes up a significant portion of her practice. Although she works with women in all stages of life—she lectures various Westchester public schools in her spare time and educates students about important gynecological issues—she places emphasis on the relationship between the aging process and gynecological health at a cellular level. What most people might not know, is that aging happens at the cellular level due in part to a lack of something called NAD in the body. NAD, at its core, is a substance that every cell in our body uses to turn food into energy, and it decreases as we age. It also decreases due to many other life stressors—being postpartum, excessive alcohol, over-eating, and getting too much sun exposure, to name a few. That said, it’s in every woman's best interest (no matter her age) to become well-versed in all things NAD and start taking the necessary steps to maintain levels of thi...
