Have you ever noticed that most of the time when you present an illness or physical issue to a traditional medical doctor that their first go-to solution to your problem includes either drugs, surgery, or both? Have you ever had a doctor look into the underlying root causes of your ailment in a meaningful way? Chances are better than even that during a typical appointment with your family doc they take about 10-15 minutes to ask what your symptoms are, then prescribe a pharmaceutical to alleviate the symptom, or refer you to a specialist that offers the same type of advice. Unfortunately, the solution offered by either rarely has much of an impact, and if it does, it tends to be short-lived because the cause of the symptom has not been identified and remedied.
In this episode, we take a look at our current broken, and antiquated medical system, and discover a world of exciting new possibilities in the industry of Functional Medicine. Be prepared to learn the insider secrets of the healthcare industry, as told by a highly educated and celebrated MD, and how to take control of your own health by forming a collaborative relationship with your doctor. In the new era of medicine, you need a doctor that understands how to prevent and treat illness and disease through lifestyle and dietary changes and sees pharmaceutical and surgical solutions as a last resort, rather than the first line of defense.
Our guest Dr. Robin Berzin is one of the world's top functional medicine (or holistic) doctors. She's also a savvy entrepreneur in the health and wellness industry and has created a new medical care model that is quickly setting the new standard for functional medicine through her groundbreaking company Parsley Health.
In addition to getting an insider's perspective on taking charge of your healthcare, you'll also gain an immense amount of practical insights and solutions to many common ailments and health issues that many of us are currently facing.
If you know someone who is stuck or frustrated with their current healthcare provider or has a chronic problem that they've been unable solve, do them a favor and share this episode with them now.
