No matter what nutrition philosophy you recommend, nearly everyone agrees fasting or cleansing is beneficial to healing. 

But…how to guide your patients safely and successfully on a practitioner-led fasting program is no small feat (especially considering how many people suffer from chronic conditions).

If you struggle with uncertainty about implementing fasting programs in your practice then this week’s podcast: Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine: The Power of Fasting is the tutorial you’ve been looking for.

Join your host, James Maskell and fasting expert Dr. Felice Gersh, on how to safely run a clinical fasting program that gets results.

Tune in today and discover:

  • Why most doctor-directed fasting programs fail
  • Which patients are candidates for fasting, and which aren’t
  • The most important pre-fasting step to take before recommending any type of fast
  • How to get your patients excited and motivated to stay the course
  • Plus get access to the new movie “Fasting” featuring Dr. Gersh

Mastering the art of practitioner-directed fasting takes prescribing lifestyle and functional medicine to a new level...the key is knowing how to do it effectively and safely.

In this week’s podcast we return to our “Success Leaves Clues” series: “Bredesen Protocol in Alabama”, featuring functional neuropsychologist Dr. Kristine Lokken, CEO and founder of Brain Health Institute in Birmingham, AL.

 “I’m living a dream I didn’t know I had”―is the quote that defines this podcast.

Dr. Lokken didn’t know she wanted to be an entrepreneur or a functional medicine doctor until she came across Dr. Dale Bredesen and Kelly Brogan’s work, discovered the Evolution of Medicine book and enrolled in the Practice Accelerator program.

From there, she implemented what she learned to establish Brain Health Institute, and realized entrepreneurship provided the life and freedom she had always dreamed of.

Tune in to hear more of Dr. Lokken’s inspiring story and learn:

  • How she started up Brain Health Institute while keeping her positions as medical director at the VA Hospital and professor at University of Alabama
  • How practicing the Bredesen Protocol has provided her with a steady stream of new patients
  • How she’s packaged her programs to maximize patient outcomes and compliance
  • What types of patients are looking for help with cognitive decline and brain health
  • Which aspects of the Practice Accelerator allowed her to realize her new dream

Success like this can happen in any city and any state.

Thousands of patients have bought Dale Bredesen’s NYT-Best-Selling book: “The End of Alzheimer’s”. Like Dr. Lokken, you can be ahead of the curve to deliver that type of care in your home town, and the Practice Accelerator can help you get there fast.


This week’s podcast: “Transcriptomics―James Maskell Exposed Again!” features Helen Messier, PhD, MD, CCFP and medical director of Viomea direct to consumer microbiome testing service. Dr. Messier was previously featured in our “Interpreting Your Genetics Summit” and is a passionate functional medicine doctor and geneticist. 

As part of that summit, James did the Viome test to raise awareness about the value of these consumer-based testing services.

The new era of direct-to-consumer testing is here, and tens of thousands of patients are ordering these microbiome tests and seeking out functional medicine practitioners to interpret their results. Is your practice ready for this?

For practitioners, this podcast serves as a learning module on interpreting these tests for your patients. For patients, this podcast will help you understand how Viome testing works and how you’ll benefit.

Tune in to watch James’ microbiome get exposed and learn:

  • How the Viome consumer-based test works, what’s included and what to expect
  • What the Viome test measures and reveals―including metabolism and the epigenetics of the microbiome
  • How the test is interpreted, including what clues to look for in pinpointing causal factors
  • What lifestyle recommendations look like based on James’ test results

This week’s podcast: “James Maskell Exposed: Lab Testing Functional Style” features our good friend Dr. Jeff Gladd MD Medical Director at kNew Health, interpreting our co-founder James Maskell’s functional lab results on-air.

Not everyone would agree to have their health markers broadcast for the world to hear, but James has done this before in “The Genetics Summit” and is back for more. The goal of this expose´ is two-fold:

For practitioners: to demonstrate the power of functional lab work has to improve patient outcomes and super-charge your practice

For patients: To help demystify the world of functional medicine and inspire listeners to get out there and get these life-changing functional labs done.

Tune in to watch James get exposed and learn:

  • How functional lab work transformed Dr. Gladd’s practice and improved patient outcomes
  • What types of labs he recommends…and why he typically doesn’t recommend a full pricey workup for each patient
  • How he gets these labs done for his patients at a super affordable rate
  • What James’ actual lab marker ranges mean according to functional lab interpretation, and what Dr. Gladd recommends he do to get them back to optimal ranges
  • How Dr. Gladd and James’ new venture: “kNew Health” works to help members save big on lab work, health coaching and self-health creation

Plus, we will air James’ re-test results, after he’s had a few months to follow Dr. Gladd’s advice to improve his markers, so stay tuned for that!

And be sure to check out Dr. Gladd and James’ newest venture kNew Health, a membership-based program aimed to provide functional medicine at an accessible and affordable rate.


This week’s podcast: “The Elephant in the Chronic Pediatric Waiting Room” with Dr. Paul Thomas, author of “The Vaccine-Friendly Plan”, is the epitome of game-changing…and is sure to drum up some constructive controversy.

Whether you’re pro-vaccine, anti-vaccine or unsure what to make of it all you owe it to yourself to listen to Dr. Thomas’ insights and findings on the current vaccine schedule and chronic pediatric ailments, like autism (the elephant in the room).

Tune in for this all-important topic today and learn:

  • What Dr. Thomas, a pro-vaccine physician, noticed about the unvaccinated children in his practice that changed the way he practiced medicine
  • Details of what he’s discovered as a cause of autism in his patient population
  • His sensible strategy for educating parents and administering vaccines to minimize the likelihood of complications
  • All about his new ground-breaking registry, where he and his team are gathering 1000 fully-vaccinated children, 1000 unvaccinated children and thousands in-between to observe and track their health for 18 years

If we are serious about solving chronic disease worldwide, we must start by bravely exploring all possible causes of modern pediatric chronic disease.

We cannot continue turn a blind eye to the elephant in the room—no matter how controversial that elephant may seem.

And be sure to tune in for January’s Functional Forum: The Evolution of Pediatrics.
