I think the article is hilarious. There's nothing wrong with Dr. Hyman's recommendations per se, but he's chosen to explain it from the perspective of sourcing out free range chickens that were read love poems by the rancher's daughter, and healing yourself of toxins with quartz crystals and magnets. I wonder if he even understands why he's recommending things, or if he's just trying to woo the woo crowd (heh).
Translated into actual science, his recommendations are quite literally:
- Don't eat food full of stuff your body doesn't need.
- Get phytonutrients in your diet, like lutein, lycopene and beta-carotene.
- Fiber is important.
- Eat protein and get omega-3's in your diet.
- Find a good way to supplement vitamins and minerals that you're deficient in.
