Dr. Perlmutter fully “integrates” conventional, nutritional and environmental medicines. As a teacher and clinician, Dr. Perlmutter morphed physician and patients perspective, to go from regarding neurological degeneration, instead, as… neural regeneration.

On this show Dr. Perlmutter defines functional neurology and discusses why he went down this “rogue” route.

Dr. Perlmutter and Dr. B. discuss why functional approaches require multiple interventions, doing away with the “one magic bullet” concept of pharmaceutical meds. They go in-depth into nutrients, ozone, glaucoma, dementia and the major question: Should everyone should go gluten free?

Dr. Perlmutter has earned many prestigious awards such as the Leonard G. Rowntree Research Award, the 2002 Linus Pauling Award from Institute for Functional Medicine, the National Nutritional Foods Association‘s Award, and the “Communications and Media Award” from the American College of Nutrition.

Dr. Perlmutter’s famous article — Dementia: Is Gluten the Culprit? was the most widely read article in the history of the Medscape online journal.

He wrote Grain Brain, which rocked the medical world, about the post inflammatory effects of consuming gluten, not only in those with Celiac (an autoimmune disease against gluten) but for many others, too.
