    320: Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation - Is it Beneficial? with Dr. Tim Radak

    In this episode of I AM HUMAN, we learn from Dr. Tim Radak about the potential harms and benefits of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation, especially from fish oil. We also discuss some caveats and what he feels is truly the best way to decrease our risk of chronic disease and increase longevity. This is a great episode if you are already or are considering supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids. 

    Dr. Radak, a seasoned dietitian and academic, shares his extensive research on the history, benefits, and controversies surrounding omega-3 supplements, particularly DHA and EPA. We discuss the harmful impact of mercury contamination in seafood due to industrial waste, the conversion pathway of ALA to DHA/EPA, and the relevance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. The conversation also touches on whether plant-based eaters should consider algal oil supplements and what current data suggests about their advantages and potential drawbacks. 

    Dr. Tim Radak has extensive experience in public health leadership and academia, having held roles in various nonprofit organizations focused on cancer prevention, health promotion, and nutrition. With over a decade of teaching at the graduate level, he transitioned to Walden University, where he currently serves as the academic program coordinator for the PhD in Public Health program. Dr. Radak's scholarly contributions include numerous peer-reviewed articles, textbook chapters, and media appearances, reflecting his expertise as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and board member of the Human Ecology Project, U.K.

    319: Heart Disease Prevention with Dr. Andrew Freeman

    Join my enlightening conversation with Dr. Andrew Freeman, a leading cardiologist and staunch advocate for plant-based nutrition, as he reveals the critical factors behind heart disease and unravels the myths surrounding diet and health. Dr. Freeman shares his personal transformation from unhealthy eating to becoming a plant-based champion, shedding light on the misinformation spread by the food industry and how to cut through the noise for a healthier lifestyle. Learn about the key health statistics you must know to evaluate your cardiovascular risk and the potential impact of endurance activities on heart health.   

    We also tackle the underutilization of plant-based methods in cardiology, despite robust professional guidelines supporting these approaches. Dr. Freeman and I discuss the cognitive dissonance many face when it comes to diet and health, particularly in a society bombarded with processed foods. From hypertension to rare cardiovascular conditions, we emphasize the power of lifestyle medicine and share practical strategies for communicating these life-changing approaches to patients. Finally, we delve into essential health metrics for adults to monitor, and tips for extreme athletes to safeguard their heart health while engaging in endurance activities.  

    Dr. Freeman is a distinguished cardiologist and educator with a rich background in medicine and academia. He completed his internal medicine training at Brown University and earned his medical degree with research honors from SUNY Buffalo, following a summa cum laude graduation from Cornell University. Currently based at National Jewish Health, he serves as Director of Clinical Cardiology and Director of Cardiovascular Prevention and Wellness, alongside his role as Associate Professor of Medicine. Dr. Freeman is renowned for his advocacy of lifestyle medicine, notably through initiatives like the Walk with a Doc program in Denver, emphasizing exercise as medicine. A leader in his field, he contributes extensively to cardiovascular research, particularly on plant-based nutrition, and actively mentors medical students and professionals while promoting health education across Colorado.

    318: Curing Knee Pain in 6 minutes and Thriving as You Age with Dr. Jonathan Su

    Can knee pain be effectively managed without resorting to surgery?  

    Dr. Jonathan Su, a distinguished physical therapist and former US Army officer, shares his compelling journey from a devastating football injury to becoming a leading voice in natural knee pain relief. Inspired by his own experience, Dr. Su turned away from surgery and embraced natural healing methods, which led to the creation of his highly practical book, "Six Minute Knee Pain Cure."  

     In this episode, we discuss the importance of often-overlooked muscles in preventing and healing knee pain, and Dr. Su provides valuable insights on proactive care and targeted exercises to maintain strength and mobility as we age. We venture beyond knee pain to explore the broader impact of muscle balance, resistance training, and holistic health approaches on long-term well-being. Dr. Su elaborates on how modern lifestyles contribute to muscle imbalances and stresses the importance of strengthening neglected muscles to prevent sarcopenia and frailty. This episode also celebrates the contributions of our armed forces and encourages listeners to pursue their dreams with resilience and hope.

    313: Creating Innovative Lifestyle Medicine Initiatives with Lily Correa, RD

    In this episode of I AM HUMAN, I interview Lily Correa, MPH, RD about the incredible and inspiring work that her amazing team is doing at NYC Health + Hospitals. We learn about her plant-based journey and how her work is so gratifying, but requires patience and perseverance. She also gives tips for how other health care professionals can make an impact and influence those around them.


    Our conversation is not just about food; it's about rewriting the script of patient care. We unwrap the stories of plant-based athletes defying expectations and the community-centric model that elevates the role of diet and exercise in managing health. The Bellevue Hospital program isn't just a clinic; it's a beacon of change, demonstrating the sustainability and impact of a shared medical appointment model. Lily and her team, under the visionary leadership of Dr. Michelle McMacken, have crafted a legacy of empowerment, enabling patients to flourish in their health journeys through education and whole-person care. Lily's aspiration to author a Spanish-language plant-based cookbook speaks to her dedication to diversifying the nutrition dialogue.


    Lily Correa, MPH, RD, is a passionate advocate for plant-based nutrition, seeing the kitchen as a powerful tool for promoting health and wellness. As a registered dietitian and bilingual health educator, she honed her skills at Kaiser Permanente in Riverside, CA, where she led plant-based cooking classes and developed a ‘culinary curriculum.’ Her commitment led her to New York, where she studied health-supportive culinary arts at the Natural Gourmet Institute and contributed to launching the Plant-Based Lifestyle Medicine Program at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue. In 2022, she became the Director of Education and Training for the Office of Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine at NYC Health + Hospitals Central Office, aiming to expand the Bellevue model citywide. Lily's expertise extends to presenting at academic conferences and community organizations, reflecting her dedication to advancing nutrition and lifestyle medicine, recognized by her Diplomate status from the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.

    • (0:30:45 - 0:40:28) Strategies for implementing lifestyle medicine programs and building supportive teams within healthcare systems. Patient success stories and the challenges of navigating established healthcare systems. 
    • (0:42:46) Final questions - success, goals, dreams, what we wish people knew, personal and global implications of dietary choices, the concept of legacy through success in healthcare, and the balance between work and personal life.
