Welcome to the Evolution of Medicine podcast! In our latest episode, we sit down with Andrew Heyman, MD, an internationally recognized expert integrative and functional medicine who currently serves as program director of integrative and metabolic medicine at The George Washington University and as the director of academic affairs at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). In this episode, Dr. Heyman discusses mitochondrial medicine, the latest in genetic research and our understanding of the cell healing cycle, and the functional aspects of cell metabolism and related genomics.
While this may sound like an educationally hefty half-hour, Dr. Heyman’s teaching approach, deeply rooted in scientific evidence and expert patient care, is easily accessible to both new learners and seasoned practitioners alike. If you enjoy this episode and want to learn more, we’re also sharing an opportunity to continue learning with Dr. Heyman and a panel of speakers he’s curating for an upcoming conference event. Highlights of this episode include:
- What mitochondrial medicine is and why it is important in integrative and functional medicine
- New research on genes and how they turn on and off
- Dr. Heyman’s experience treating Lyme disease and mold-related conditions, and what he’s learned about their impact on the brain
