In today’s post, we share the first talk as part of the Charlottesville Center for Functional Medicine (CVCFM) Wellness Workshop Series hosted at Studio IX in Charlottesville, Virginia.
In this talk you will hear co founders Ryan Hall, Rob Abbott and Kerri Cooper introduce CVCFM and attempt to answer that all elusive question “What is Health?”
Together we explore the key components of health, seeing it as something much more than just the absence of disease or sickness.
We share our 7 Relationships for finding and sustaining well being: sleep, stress management, movement, nutrition, community, wisdom and play and begin to explore the real meaning behind each of this crucial relationships.
We offer our working definition of functional and ancestral medicine and provide some concrete examples to explain what a personalized root-caused resolution approach to cultivating wellness looks like.
We even have a short Q/A period at the end of the talk where we seek to compare and contrast diets and nutrition templates and explore some of the biochemistry behind and rationale for pursuing a ketogenic diet.
We were incredibly grateful for the opportunity to speak at Studio IX and will be back in two weeks to dig a little deeper into nutrition and the reasons for following an ancestral nutrition template.
