Radio, Podcasts, and Online Publication

July 21st, 2019

Listen to the interview I gave for The Tourist Podcast where PJ Harlow and I break down the medicalization of health as we know it while illuminating the rise in chronic illness, childhood epidemics and the simple fact that many people aren’t finding answers and healing where they once did. As we talk about our own families’ experiences with chronic illnesses and how we both came into Functional Health, we discuss the common patterns of denial, low expectations and feeling abandoned by the system. We go deep into some of the barriers and obstacles families, parents, caregivers and individuals are currently facing.

Center for Epigenetic Expression Podcast Interview #2

Do you have a child with a diagnosis? Do you have a diagnosis? Or do you simply want to feel better, have your children feel better, to move past ADHD, fatigue, obesity, autoimmunity, and other conditions that are affecting your life? Do you know there is more that you can do but are not sure where to start?

Epidemic Answers Webinar

Supporting type 1 diabetes with a functional-medicine approach.

Carla’s daughter developed type 1 diabetes seven years ago. She discovered that mainstream medicine’s main way of dealing with type 1 diabetes is matching insulin to carbohydrates. Surely there must be more to it than that? And what causes or contributes to it?

Instead of thinking, “that’s all there is to it”, she dove into functional medicine, an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that looks to eliminate rather than suppress symptoms by looking at the root causes of a disease or condition.

Carla explained to us how, through functional medicine practices and testing, you can potentially:

  • Find the root causes of your child’s diabetes
  • Reduce or eliminate risk of further disease progression and complications
  • Reduce or eliminate risk of developing co-morbidities
  • Have a better relationship with your healthcare practitioners and chose the ones that will work with you in a manner that works for you
  • Optimize your child’s health through your own efforts
  • Explore the possibility of complete disease reversal or elimination of symptoms
