Lazy Reader’s Section:
Functional medicine is an umbrella perspective that considers health from a holistic, integrated perspective and evaluates all natural possibilities for preventative treatment and maintenance of optimal health, rather than waiting for disease to happen. If disease is present, functional medicine will approach the problem by supporting the body to heal itself wherever possible and minimize the collateral damage from drugs and medications.
I discuss this perspective at great length, as well as the resources mentioned here, in my book, Dance Your Way Through Life where I share over 1500+ scientific references, action plans and everything there is to know about health. It also comes with 30 minutes with yours truly to clarify your goals and set an action plan to kick ass, so go check it out.
Finally, if you want to include me as part of your functional health team, don’t be afraid to reach out.
Healthcare since 2020 has changed drastically, and with that what it means to go to the doctor, treat disease and be healthy. Remember that only 50–60 years ago doctors were painted on cigarette ads and it was considered “healthy” to smoke. Today we laugh at these things but in some ways things have changed considerably while in others they haven’t changed much.
