The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.


We are seeing an ever-increasing burden of chronic disease, primarily driven by our food and food system. This is perpetuated by agricultural, food and health care policies that don’t support health. We need to rethink disease and reimagine a food system and a health care system the protects health, unburdens the economy from the weight of obesity and chronic disease, protects the environment, helps reverse climate change and creates a nation of healthy children and citizens. This podcast is a place for deep conversations about the critical issues of our time in the space of health, wellness, food and politics. New episodes are released every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning. I hope you'll join me.

    Constant Burping
    Love the information but what is going on with your digestion, Dr? You burp or hiccup or whatever repeatedly into the microphone. I have noticed this for years even when you are a guest on other podcasts. Honestly it's very distracting.
  • Dianemcq
    A Must-Listen Podcast
    I discovered Dr. Hyman years ago when he published his first book. I’ve probably read all of his books and the podcast is a wealth of information. Dr. Mark does an exceptional job of clearly explaining medical concepts and always clarified when a guest gets too into medical terminology. He always remembers who his audience is! Wishing there would be a podcast on eye health that covers dry eye disease. Also wishing Dr. Mark would be a better listener and stop interrupting guests and interjecting his own thoughts so frequently. He details his guests’ train of thoughts. Still a 5-star podcast from someone who has overcome tremendous health issues of his own and is dedicated to helping all of us live healthy lives. I’m forever indebted.
  • Solykk
    Thank you for the podcast it’s really helpful I’ve just listened to your interview with ben , I’ve learned a lot but I’d like to point out some things that will improve your podcast, please don’t interrupt people while they are talking, it’s not a disaster to pronounce lipogenesis differently and also is it necessary to mention „I know you are NOT a medical doctor but what’s your tip“?!
  • bookandsunlover
    Too many burps
    While the information in this podcast is useful and important, I have a hard time listening to it because it sounds like Dr. Hyman is constantly making quiet burps. My recommendation would be to record the show on an empty stomach.
  • Katie326
    Wealth of knowledge but
    I would rate the show a 5 based on Dr. Hyman’s wealth of knowledge and how much usable info he packs in to each episode. However, it bugs me how much he interrupts his guests, especially women. He will ask a question, then right when a guest is answering, he starts to answer. I feel like he shows a lack of respect for those he brings on the show.
  • Sar28972765
    Great info but…
    Hello! I have loved listening to the doctors pharmacy for quite a while and really enjoy the contents. One word of constructive criticism, if I may, if there is a way to change the mic position on Dr. Hyman, that would be awesome since he can often hear his breathing in the mic. May ‘23, enjoying the episode about blood sugar regulation but having a hard time hearing what Dr Hyman is saying while the gal he is interviewing is perfectly clear
  • sibeds92
    Great info
    Great info but the lack of humility makes it tough to listen sometimes
  • Jossypdx
    Please address the burping.
    Spend the time and care to level-up with simple editing to ensure you are not distracting your audience with the constant burping and eating throughout each podcast.
  • HHDonna10
    Dr Hyman, so much gratitude for all you do. Each and every podcast offers a gift of insight.Love and blessings always
  • Bauma Shaw
    Very knowledgeable But Needs Speaking Classes
    Love the knowledge and expertise shared. It’s great information. But I had to quit listening because of the mouth noises and the steady stream of “ums”. Regular people have mouth noises and use “um” when they speak—but podcasters shouldn’t.
  • Mercedes Y Semaan
    answers all the nutritional questions I’ve always had!
    This podcast is so eye-opening for me, having lived in America and other countries and comparing my negative experience with the quality of food in the US versus in other places. Dr Hyman is so good at not sugar-coating the advice and being real about what not to do in order to live healthy. We need more voices like his advocating food as medicine and exposing the damage being done by the food and pharmaceutical industries who we so easily forget are for-profit and not for-health.
  • CMHSept
    A bit distracting
    I enjoy listening to Dr. Human’s podcast, BUT it is sooo distracting how he burps in almost every episode lol. I know it shouldn’t be a big deal, but once I started noticing it, it’s incredibly distracting. It’s hard to take health advice from someone who is continually burping.
  • KelliTX1
    The Science of Protein and Longevity
    This episode was so hard to listen to. The way you were so aggressive and overbearing with the guest was awful. If you’re going to interrupt and challenge what the person is saying, why have them on?
  • PurpleTeddy
    The Dr. Layman episode was excellent
    Just finished the protein episode with Dr. Layman. It was excellent. I had to listen to a few parts several times because it got a tiny bit confusing. I know I will listen to it again and I’ve already forwarded it to 2 friends. I know he trained Dr. Lyon, but I find her show frustrating sometimes because it feels like the guests sometimes have wacky ideas. She is great though but I don’t hear her ever pushback. What I particularly love about Dr. Hyman is his interest in ideas that are different from past theories. At least one time in this podcast he observed that. I also loved the discussion of how much protein to consume at different meals. I know that processed carbs are junk because I listen all the time. However, after listening to this specific episode I will look at carbs very differently. Even the 5th of a banana in my morning protein shake might have to go away. THANK YOU, Dr. Hyman, for always educating me. I am so very grateful. 🙏

    Response to ncarlyle, pharmacist
    I don’t defend Dr. Hyman’s phlegm clearing habits but I don’t condemn them either. It is quit rude of you to point this out. It is also very unprofessional. These podcasts are about this information and not his personal habits. The information shared in Dr. Hyman’s books and podcasts are scientifically sound. I have had college level nutrition, chemistry - organic and inorganic, several biologies and physics. I have studied and verified the claims through literature search. I know how to read peer reviewed, double blind studies. You should be able to do this too, as a pharmacist. I am surprised and suspicious of any higher credentialed healthcare professional who is critical in a personal approach. It isn’t at all scientific and I know you were trained how to think at this level. Perhaps you have forgotten or there is another reason.
  • Lily Pomus
    Fave show but why isn’t the April anxiety deep dive working :(
    I love this show but sometimes the deep dives don’t work… The anxiety one won’t play for me… please fix
  • ncarlyle
    What is in your mouth when you’re talking?
    It sounds like you’re sucking on a candy or something while you talk. Those weird long pauses while you’re swallowing…you can hear the saliva every time you open your mouth. How have your producers and editors let this go? It is so gross to listen to. Please stop. Not a fan of your overall approach - lots of scare tactics, overwhelming your audience, so negative! I guess it sells, but as a relatively healthy pharmacist myself, I am stressed out listening to you list all the things that I’m eating wrong and what could be wrong with me. Very disappointing.
  • joyfulgal25
    The Science Behind Cold and Heat Therapy
    Totally enjoyed and appreciated the info on cold therapy…Dr Soberg is wonderful. I will try the plunge in my bathtub. But I have listened for 1 hour and 15minutes and we still have not gotten info on the sauna which I really wanted to hear. I wish Dr Mark gave her more time to discuss Suana.
  • Blondie 🧜🏻‍♀️
    History of heart disease!
    This is so good, mind blowing and yet so well put together! I hope you can get your own show on regular TV, perhaps public television and share this info everyday for the next 10 yrs! We gotta shout about the corruption from the roof tops! Thank you! 👏👏👏👏👏❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
  • 👻😺
    Love the content, can’t stand the interviewer
    He really interrupts the guests EVERY SENTENCE. It’s stressful knowing he’s going to get them off track and derail the subject into another almost immediately. Not a holistic convo lol, very disjointed. These are your guests for a reason, you want them to speak on important info…you should not interrupt so much. It’s so distracting and rude.
  • Gnarkillyes
    Great information
    Just getting in to his podcast you definitely don’t get bored like with some other podcast and you really get sucked into the contest, he gives you more than one way to fit things in to your daily life, which is important one size doesn’t fit all and he proves that episode after episode!
  • DanoSchantz
    Awesome information
    I started listening to this podcast from the first episode. I find it very informative. I haven’t caught up to the latest yet, but I hope to hear more. Would love to hear about diets and Ankylosing Spondylitis.
  • Murdock Girl
    Great podcast
    Really enjoy this incredibly informative podcast. It covers so many topics, never boring, always something to learn!

    The best TRUTH on food and Health
  • nitroneenz
    Love the show!
    I work at an integrative medical clinic where we utilize western and eastern medicine. The topics this show covers are very important and fascinating. I love how Dr. Hymen talks about the latest research and studies. I would love if he could cover more topics such as how the BMI index really isn’t a great tool, how racism affects patients in medicine, the difficulties in providing true holistic care for patients who do not have the financial means to buy tests, quality food and supplements aka things not covered by insurance. Thanks Dr. Hymen!
  • Cesca89
    Absolutely fantastic and a must listen
    One of my favorite podcasts- truly grateful that Dr Mark shared his knowledge and passion! Highly recommend.

    Speech help needed
    I agree with some of the other reviewers I think some speech lessons could help
  • heavenly healthy gourmet
    My fave!
    This is my favorite podcast! Being a health coach I just love listening to all of it, always learning!!!
  • Kathansendrawings
    Always learning something new on here!
    I don’t always understand some of the medical jargon but I get enough of it to always learn something new with each episode! Great podcast!
  • kkd1515
    Smacking podcasting
    I wanted to love this but the constant smacking as if he is eating (and probably is) is unbearable. People don’t eat during your podcast it is horrible to listen to.
  • mr guder
    I can’t get enough of this podcast!! Learning so much. This is so informative and interesting. Dr Hymans way of thinking is so much along the lines with my own. ❤️I always look forward to listening.
  • Laura in NY
    Awesome team! Mark and Lewis
    Gentlemen, I listen to both of your podcasts regularly. They are great. This one was especially poignant for me today. Lewis talked a lot about healing the inner child, parenting that child and learning your triggers hat affect your adult relationships. How long did it take you Lewis, to come to a place of peace and knowledge of your triggers? I want to start the journey.
  • Lesbois1
    One of my favorite podcasts
    Quality source for medical and wellness information.

    Burping slurping and gulping
    Dr mark please consider not taking supplements prior to recording a podcast so you don’t continuously burp. Please don’t drink fluids during a podcast so you don’t continuously slurp. Also consider working with a speech therapist so you can better annunciate and don’t make extraneous noises during podcast. Such good content but difficult to listen to

    679: Genetics of the grain we eat, not genetics of the human
    At about the one hour mark of the Hyman/food/obesity problem, they discuss how genetics might be blamed for overeating. However they immediately assumed the genetics of Americans was the issue, it’s not so much. The genetics of wheat is the biggest change. William Davis, “Wheat Belly” fame nails this. 2/3 of our calories come from ultra processed food so it’s impractical to get this to go away, but only 1/7 is from grains. We could replace that! The majority of our appetite aberration is (probably) caused by the bit of wheat protein after digestion in our diet. Get rid of processed grain (including bread) “whole” or not, out of your diet and replace with legumes, nuts and non-grass seeds which are greatly undereaten. Nutrition is complex and separating the wheat from the chaff (haha) is hard and obfuscation is easy. This simple step — avoid all wheat— will solve 60-80% of the overeating problem.
  • postpartumdoulamarcy
    I’m always smarter after listening to Mark and his friends!
    I’m learn so much and feel empowered after listening. I feel like o know much of this info but I always have awesome takeaways that I share with my family and friends. Keep up the great and important work!!!
  • bmath1
    Great info
    I have learned so much from this podcast. I have changed my lifestyle because of your info. Thanks.
  • mihrllec
    Too many episodes per week
    I really like this podcast and feel like I am learning a lot about how to enhance my health. I do wish podcasters would recognize that most people who listen to podcasts enjoy listening to multiple ones. Three episodes a week is so hard to stay up on or catch up on.
  • booheaven
    Great information
    I’m giving this 4 stars based solely on the editing, which is sometimes very choppy. But that’s no reason not to listen. This pod is full of great information and has so far (this past month) turned me on to 2 books that have been extremely helpful. Dr. Hyman is a chatty, warm and charming host, and is himself full of great advice and perspective. Looking forward to reading the new book on Longevity.
  • StuartInWisconsin
    A key spot in my podcast list
    Always something of key importance and interest. I don’t always agree 100% but really appreciate Dr Hyman’s willingness to put topics into discussion.
  • MarintheUSA
    Mark Hyman thinks “young” is the same as “healthy”
    Some episodes have helpful, thoughtful information and insights but they are overshadowed by mark’s interruptions and comments. Let your guests speak! I thought this was a health podcast that would have lots of different topics for a diverse audience but it seems the focus is on “being young.” Mark seems to equate youth with health and it comes off as though he is absolutely terrified of embracing his age. Also, the burping and slurping is so gross and I’m not sure if it bothers anyone else but it bothers me!
  • horseygirl2222
    This podcast is amazing!! So much great information. So many awesome guests and tons of practical advice on how live a healthier life!! Thanks Dr Hyman.
  • sPankyAce
    Political views off putting
    Listening to the episode on failing and succeeding in love. I was liking the podcast until you decided to put down a past president with a comment you made. It was extremely off putting and we completely lost interest in the rest of your podcast. Not a good idea to alienate listeners by bad mouthing a president. You should leave those kind of comments out of your podcasts.
  • hltcrz
    Invoke Politics…
    Cuts our previous president when he gets a chance, why invoke politics just turns people away. It’s not supposed to be a political podcast…
  • Marysella
    Loveeee this podcast!
    This is my favorite current podcast. The amount of tips I've picked up is crazy. Thank you!
  • AN * 77%%
    Why does he even bother having guests on?
    I can not listen to this show. Dr. Hyman’s ego is massive. He constantly interrupts and talks over his guests. Hyman is so set on what HE wants to impart that the very interesting, knowledgeable, and learned guests are left mumbling. The flow of the interview is thrown off each time his demanding voice interrupts what could be an interesting discussion. He needs to learn how to listen, take an interest in what others are saying, and shut up. At this point, I am surprised he finds guests to come on the show. He also burbs A LOT - RIGHT into the mic! It is extremely offputting.
  • BergerBabe
    Informative but also Repetitive
    This podcasts is informative. I appreciate Dr. Hyman’s holistic approach to his work, something I wish more doctors did. I find it can be pretty repetitive most episodes. He tends to talk over his guests, and when he does it seems to be discourse on his “low body fat percentage” which he loves to just *casually* slip in. The silent burping that happens weirds me out, like maybe he talks to quickly and runs out of breath? I loved his books and the Fed Up documentary. Maybe folks should start with those then transition to the podcast.
  • S_Nowak
    Informative, but bad habits…
    Dr. Hyman holds an amazing array of information and a path to health that I agree with. However, while listening to the interviews I often can’t get past the rude behaviors exhibited to guests and the constant burping and no respect of an “excuse me.” You can be smart and knowledgeable, and still be a good human. I find a lot of arrogance in recent episodes. I’m disappointed, I hope you find a kinder path.
  • theQueen412323
    Excellent Approach to Helping Patients
    I’ve learned so much from you and your guests. I only wish my mom could have had a doctor like you. She passed in October after a years-long battle with dementia. I’m taking your advice and passing it on to my 5 siblings to avoid following the same path.
  • Annie Pichan
    Great podcast, lots of burping though
    I love this podcast and Dr. Hyman. The only reason I give it 4-stars is because is it just me or is he constantly burping and swallowing? It really disrupts the flow. Otherwise great stuff!
