Commune is a podcast where we explore the ideas and practices that bring us together and help us live healthy, purpose-filled lives. We believe personal and societal health are two sides of the same coin, and that cultivating personal wellness is the first step toward making the world well. We connect with experts, scientists, and storytellers around food, health, social impact, mindfulness and movement practices, personal growth, and environmental action. In addition to being a podcast, Commune is also an online course platform where thousands of participants take each course together, day-by-day, for free. We then provide social tools that empower participants to form local action groups and implement their new knowledge in their communities.

In this episode, meet Dr. Mark Hyman, a Functional Medicine physician on the frontlines of this healthcare revolution. He’s an author, Founder and Director of the UltraWellness Center, and Director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine.
