Success Leaves Clues

This week on the Evolution of Medicine Podcast, we feature Dr. Mary Caire who has transformed her former practice into a successful Functional Medicine practice.  Dr. Caire was the inspiration for our new series of podcasts called "Success Leaves Clues".

The IFM survey data showed that very few practitioners were successful when attempting to make this transition and felt there were too many barriers to entry when transitioning from traditional western medicine to a Functional Medicine practice.  We're so grateful to Dr. Caire for sharing her journey, tips, and successes to help shorten the learning curve for the rest of us.

In this podcast you will hear:

  • Dr. Caire's journey from physiatrist to a Functional Medicine practitioner
  • what percentage of income comes from which sources in Dr. Caire's practice
  • how to use genetic testing to motivate patients

What we really want to do is hear from doctors who have made the transition, successfully. If you are one of those practitioners or know someone, please share your story. Write to us at support@goevomed.com

  • clinical areas in which meth might be an issue
  • sensible ways to help patients deal with methylation
