Evolution of Medicine Podcast
The Micropractice Evolution: H.O.M.E.

In May 2014, one of our favorite physicians Dr. Jeffrey Gladd came onto the Functional Forum to share his thoughts on what we were then calling "Integrative Medicine 2.0". Dr. Gladd has built a successful practice in rural Indiana. How could doctors use technology to deliver better integrative medicine?

One weekend before that talk, Dr. Gladd had a 'moment of clarity' and his talk on the Functional Forum started with Integrative Medicine 2.0, but ended with his vision for H.O.M.E. (Heirloom Organic Micropractices focused on Empowerment) You can see the video of his talk below.

During the talk, Dr. Gladd asked what medicine would look like if there was an integrative micropractice for every farmers market in America? That question sat very deeply with us at the Forum and lead to our vision for changing healthcare. 

100,000 integrative medical practices focused on root cause resolution and community health.

Since we shared that vision, many other doctors have got in touch to share their innovative micropractice model, leading to this podcast series. In this first episode we hear from Dr. Gladd from his talk from the 2014 Evolution of Medicine Summit, that was recorded that same weekend.

In this podcast you will learn

  • What doctors are afraid of and how to move past fear and build your dream practice
  • The H.O.M.E. model and how it can empower change
  • Dr. Gladd's other awesome innovations that have empowered great health

Zoobiquity: What can we learn from vets?

Dr. Richard Palmquist is on the top holistic veterinarians in the country, not only building a significant t practice in Los Angeles, CA but also leading areas of research and academia.

We recorded this podcast back in April in LA, and he gave me a book called 'Zoobiquity' by Dr. Barbara Natterson-Horowitz. This book is incredible, showing the massive value of collaboration between doctors and vets.

In this podcast we look at this exact topic, looking at the value that can be added to doctors, vet and most importantly their patients by learning from each other.

This is exactly the reason why we have initiated the Functional Forum meetups (link to functionalforum.com/meetup) to create the space and community where practitioners can learn from each other.

What you will learn from the podcast

  • what doctors can learn from vets to improve patient care
  • what shopping supermarket isles can tell us about what people want
  • the differences between treating and healing, and implications for root cause resolution
