In this episode we cover:
The NEST and ROPE acronyms provide the foundational elements that represent the root cause of chronic disease if not mastered:
N: Nutrition (what and when you eat)
S: Less stress/more sleep
T: How you Think/less Trauma
O: Organism (avoiding the bad/adding the good)
E: Emotions/Life Experiences
Nutrition is not the only area of focus
Why continuous learning can be a game-changer
Exercise is the least important aspect of the NEST
Dr. Hampton is a board-certified obesity specialist, working with patients individually in the clinic and with small groups enrolled in the diabetes prevention program (D.P.P.). As one of only just over 3,000 Board Certified Obesity Medicine Specialists in the United States, he's been able to use his knowledge to help develop and support programs that reduce the obesity burden. He is especially passionate about removing barriers to health and equipping patients and his colleagues with the education and resources they need to take charge of their health. He previously served as the medical director of the Advocate Operating System, where he collaborated with clinicians and staff on programs to address social determinants of health among at-risk patient populations. He has also been instrumental in the launch of the Food Farmacy (that's FARM-acy with an "F") at Advocate Trinity Hospital to increase access to fresh, healthy food for patients and community members in need in partnership with the Chicago Food Depository. He has participated in novel research, serving as the lead researcher for the Merck/Premiere-sponsored trial, where he worked in collaboration with other thought leaders to develop a point-of-care tool to be used by front-line physicians to improve diabetes care using patient data. He authored the book: Fix Your Diet, Fix Your Diabetes, and is an active blogger on social media. His newest projects include creating more educational videos/interviews on YouTube and hosting his own podcast, Protecting Your N.E.S.T. with Dr. Tony Hampton.
