Today on the show, we welcome Chris Kresser. Chris is a globally recognized leader in the fields of ancestral health, Paleo nutrition, and functional and integrative medicine. He is the author of the New York Times best seller, The Paleo Cure and has just released his brand-new book titled, Unconventional Medicine. More and more people around the world are starting to recognize that the problems we are facing in the current healthcare system are not ones that someone else can fix. Recent statistics suggests that we are going to have a shortage of over 50,000 primary care providers by the year 2025. One in two American's now have chronic disease, 30% of kids now have a chronic disease, and the average amount of time that a patient gets to speak before they're interrupted by the doctor is just twelve seconds! These are just some of the alarming statistics released in Chris’s book, which address the current state of conventional medicine in America today. So what can we do about it? In this episode, we discuss the role of functional medicine and how the move toward this approach is almost inevitable. Chris explains how we can start to implement functional medicine into our lives today and start addressing the root causes of our problems, rather than masking the symptoms. This is an insightful episode for those in a medical field, health activists, and anybody looking for a solution to their personal, long-term health.

  • Addressing the symptom rather than the root cause.
  • The three-part framework for addressing chronic disease.
