Evolution of Medicine Podcast

At the December 2015 Functional Forum, Holistic Nutrition Lab's Andrea Nakayama referred to 2016 as 'The Year of Empathy'. It seemed to elicit a great response from the audience and so we asked her back in the studio to expand on her thoughts.

We have been a big fan of Andrea's work for a year now, one of the major reasons being that she has created a completely scalable education program to help an unlimited number of health professionals reach mastery in the field of Functional Nutrition. It is one thing to be able to deliver great care, but to reverse engineer the process so others can follow in her footsteps consistently.

What you will learn in this podcast:
  • Why empathy is having a comeback in medicine
  • Andrea's 8 Part Framework for delivering empathy in a clinical setting
  • The role of intuition in medicine and how to develop it

Andrea made one of her video trainings available free for all listeners and you can access the video training here: www.goevomed.com/empathy

Social Genomics: The Science of Community

Last August, our Functional Forum came from the Institute for Functional Medicine’s Annual International Conference in Austin TX. Of all the amazing speakers, we chose to highlight the talk of George Slavich, PhD, a researcher from UCLA’s Stress Lab.

Check out the highlights from his talk here.

His field: Social Genomics: A new area of science that looks at the correlative and causative factors behind social stress, and their effects on gene expression. The answers they are uncovering are fascinating, as are the questions those answers lead us to.

This is a must listen for any health professional passionate about ‘root cause resolution’ and opens up a new paradigm in diagnosis and treatment of chronic disease. UCLA has also developed "STRAIN", an "X-Ray for Stress" that allows you to compare patients stress objectively. Check it out here.

 
 What you will learn in this podcast:
  • What is social genomics and what are they measuring?
  • Why the brain and the immune system are so intimately linked?
  • Social isolation vs. diet, exercise and smoking.. what’s worst?

The Paleovedic Diet
At first glance, the concepts behind 'paleo' and 'Ayurveda' might seem completely at odds. Ayurveda is all about eating vegan and 'typing' and paleo is all about dogma and eating meat, right?
 
Not according to, Dr. Akil Palanisamy, a Harvard trained physician and author of the new book 'The Paleovedic Diet', one that draws from the strengths of each to create something unique. By personalizing paleo concepts by type and emphasizing vegetables in a paleo framework, you can get the best of both worlds.
 
This diet has been particularly successful for the treating of autoimmune disease which is a particular focus for Evolution of Medicine in 2016. Dr Palanisamy is also the host of an upcoming event on Evolutionary Medicine at UCSF with other EvoMed favorites like Chris Kresser. Check it out here!
 

What you will learn in this podcast:

  • The rationale and proven success of the "Paleovedic Diet'
  • How much more nutrient dense a wild apple is than a 'regular apple'
  • What evolutionary medicine is and why it is important

If you were watching the December Functional Forum you saw this wisdom from him, which is typical!
