Have you ever wondered why your doctor never asks about your diet, or lifestyle when you walk in with an issue to solve? And why if you have an illness or disease that their approach usually involves giving you drugs, or cutting a part of your body off/out? Have you ever thought about why modern medicine tends to treat the symptoms of a disease, rather than cause?

In this episode, we take a look at the world of functional medicine. In so doing we uncover a slew of myths and erroneous ideas about health and fitness. We're constantly brainwashed with misinformation about our health by mainstream media, which is primarily funded by advertising dollars from the pharmaceutical and (junk) food corporations. You’ll likely be shocked to learn the multitudes of scientifically verified truths about so many of our false, yet commonly-held beliefs about fat, cholesterol, calories, and weight loss that have been perpetuated on our culture by these greedy industries.

Dr. Justin has been worked in the trenches with thousands of clients, helping them to unlearn many of these false assumptions, and to recover their health by addressing the root causes of disease and illness while treating them with dietary and lifestyle changes, coupled with vitamin, and herbal supplementation.

Functional medicine is medicine that works. You’re about to find out how and why.

If you know someone with health issues, please do them a favor by sharing this episode with them, in hopes that they might be inspired to find a doctor who uses this highly effective methodology in their medical practice.

Thanks for listening, and for fighting for truth and justice in our broken medical system.

Luke
