Evolution of Medicine Podcast

This week on the Evolution of Medicine podcast we feature one of the world's leading authorities on science-based natural/integrative medicine, Dr. Joe Pizzorno, ND. Dr. Pizzorno is the founder of Bastyr University and he joins us to talk about environmental toxins. He's been on the cutting edge of this topic for several decades and we're excited to welcome to the podcast. 

As we prepare to present the Evolution of Environmental Medicine next week, Dr. Pizzorno shares with us that toxins either contribute to or cause virtual every chronic illness we see today.  What can practitioners do when toxins have been proven to be trans-generational? Dr. Pizzorno explains how you can approach treatment for those exposed to toxins, indicators of toxin exposure, and what to measure when testing for exposure. He goes into greater details in his new book: The Toxin Solution: How Hidden Poisons in the Air, Water, Food, and Products We Use Are Destroying Our Health--AND WHAT WE CAN DO TO FIX IT. This book is a culmination of the decades of research that he's done around toxins and how to avoid those you can and what to do to mitigate the effects of the ones you can't.

On this podcast you will hear:

  • what are some of the most common toxins
  • what diseases are caused by these toxins
  • lessons from Dr. Pizzornoa's extensive environmental toxin data

This week on the Evolution of Medicine podcast, we feature medical student and innovator, Robert Abbott. Like many of the our practitioner community, personal experience lead Robert to the world of functional medicine. Once you discover something so positive and life-changing, there is no turning back and it certainly rings true for Robert.
 
Shocked that he wasn't learning more about lifestyle medicine in medical school, he chose to dive into learning integrative and functional medicine through podcasts, blogs,and other free resources along with his med school training. From his diligent self-teachings, Robert collected and created a resource for any practitioner/student interested in functional and integrative medicine for free. Anyone in any corner of the world in pursuit of more information around functional and integrative medicine can access this information absolutely free. Don't forget to share this with your colleagues and fellow med students.
 
On this podcast you will hear:
  • Robert's story
  • why he decided to put together a free resource
  • how his leanings haven affected his patient and clinician interactions
  • the importance of not only getting the formal education, but also learning from the practitioner community

This week on the Evolution of Medicine podcast we welcome Dr. Michel Dupuis, a chiropractor from northern Ontario. Dr. Dupuis shares the story of his journey to building a successful Functional Medicine practice.  We could not be happier to hear from a doctor whose story illustrates the power of implementing the solutions offered in not only our programs but also the resources that we've been recommending for the past few years.

Dr. Dupuis started his functional medicine education with Functional Medicine University and The Kalish Institute. Later, he discovered the Functional Forum.  From there he took advantage of a free practice assessment with Gabe Hoffman, co-founder of Evolution of Medicine which resulted in working with Freedom Practice Coaching to change his practice model. After adding an additional 80k to his yearly income in just the first month with FPC, Dr. Dupuis added the Evolution of Medicine Practice Accelerator and from there he started using Nudge Coach to keep in touch with his new patients that now stretched 100 miles outside of his small town. He has recently become a Functional Forum Meetup Host and has become the "go to" doc in his community for practitioners looking to make the same changes in their personal and professional lives.

In this podcast, you will hear:

  • Dupuis' journey to functional medicine
  • how his business and personal life has changed
  • how interactions with patients has been impacted
  • how Dr. Dupuis tackled the most important part of change - implementation
  • what resources have been invaluable for transitioning to a Functional Medicine micropractice

This week on the Evolution of Medicine podcast, we kick off our upcoming Functional Forum: Evolution of Cardiology with Dr. Steven Masley as we revisit his interview from the Evolution of Medicine Summit: Healthcare from Scratch.

Cardiology used to be the study of the heart - but in the last couple decade it's been more about the study of cardiac procedures. Not all of these procedures have long term benefits and most just treat the symptoms and do not prevent future events. Dr. Masley looks at this from a preventative and lifestyle medicine perspective and works to educate both patients and practitioners on what they can do to avoid seeing a cardiologist altogether. 

On the podcast you will hear:

  • Emerging best practices for preventing heart disease
  • How to predict if you can live to 100 without disease
  • How technology can massively reduce our costs

Click here to join us for the Evolution of Cardiology on March 6!
