I was so fortunate to be invited by my dear friends Steve Fullerton and Somers Stephenson to beautiful Monterey Va, in the grassy mountains of Highland County to give a talk on the Future of Medicine.
The talk is broken down into two main sections.
The first includes a discussion of the 7 Relationships- the 7 key lifestyle areas I see as important for optimal health.
I offer detailed descriptions and even some science for each area and offer practical tips to improve one’s habits within the 7 Relationships.
In part two I breakdown my definitions of ancestral and functional health and provide the basics of my clinical approach and systems based thinking.
I then walk through a real life case study, making parallels to the key dysregulated systems and offer my thoughts on testing and diagnostic approach. I provide a therapeutic hierarchy and offer my comprehensive treatment recommendations including lifestyle based therapies targeting the 7 Relationships as well as targeted supplementation addressing the identified physiologic disturbances and dysfunctions.
I conclude the talk offering my hopeful solution to our epidemic of chronic disease which includes collaboration with health coaches and nutritional therapy clinicians. I describe my recent work collaborating with Angie Alt as part of her SAD to AIP in six program addressing autoimmunity through nutritional and lifestyle approaches.
I really hope you enjoy this talk and will sharing more of my work in the near future!
