Evolution of Medicine Podcast (health, alternative health)

This week’s podcast features professional athlete, explorer and 2X record-holder Colin O’Brady in: Overcoming Massive Odds to Change the World.

While we typically feature doctors and experts from within our industry on the podcast, Colin’s background, story and mission run in perfect parallel with our kNew vision for American healthcare.

Tune in today for one of the most inspirational comeback stories you’ll ever hear, including:

  • How Colin overcame severe burns to over 25% of his body and the prognosis of “never walking again”, and went on to become a record-shattering professional athlete, explorer and philanthropist
  • What he credits as being key in his recovery of body and mindset (hint: integrative medicine played a role)
  • The inside-story on what compelled and motivated him to complete (and win) some of the world’s most grueling athletic competitions, including the “Explorer’s Grand Slam” mountaineering challenge
  • How his core desire to help eradicate childhood obesity drove him to push himself beyond perceived physical barriers, and inspired him to found his non-profit: Beyond72
  • Plus, learn how you can join Colin in his commitment to inspire America’s health and fitness in his Forest-Gump-style state-by-state mountain-climbing tour this summer

Those of us who have answered the call to evolve the future of healthcare know what it feels like to be up against all-odds.

But, if stories like Colin’s teach us anything, it’s that our cause is nowhere near impossible and we can all do more to change the world.
