What the hell is functional medicine?

Why is everyone talking about how evil wheat and corn are, and what does that have to do with leaky gut?

That’s what we’re going to discuss today, but just before we do that I would like to invite you to invite others to rate the show on Apple or Spotify.

Today we are chatting with my doctor and extraordinary human, Dr. Jeffrey Kalins.

After completing undergraduate school he finished one year of medical school in Paris but quickly realized that wasn’t how he thought healthcare should be provided. Unless under emergency conditions it never made sense to him to take out body parts and give someone toxic chemicals which we call ‘drugs’ to deal with symptoms. He always had an inquisitive mind, asking why, so he embarked on a search to find the profession that would prepare him to deliver health care, and not sickness care. He found that in chiropractic and applied kinesiology which opened a whole new world that he shares with us today.
