    Dr. Corey Riser

    Dr. Corey Riser

    Elle Russ chats with Dr. Corey Riser - a Chiropractic Physician and a practicing Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner with over 300 hours of post-doctoral Functional Endocrinology and Clinical Nutrition education. 
    Originally from Zanesville, Ohio, Dr. Riser began his work in alternative medicine through his award-winning Undergraduate Thesis study on Bacteriophage Therapy of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) as a preferred treatment method over traditional antibiotics.
    While attending graduate school, Dr. Riser’s passion for alternative medicine developed after the passing of his grandmother, mother, and father in a two-year span.  He watched as conventional medicine treatment with drug therapy and a lack of nutritional guidance continued time and time again to fail his family members and ultimately led to untimely deaths.  It was at this time that he redirected his efforts toward Functional Medicine education.
    In 2017, Dr. Riser founded Functional Health Center of the Carolinas, a highly regarded Functional Medicine clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina. It has quickly become one of the most sought after “Chronic Disease Reversal” clinics in the region.
    As the Clinic Director, the focus of Dr. Riser’s practice is primarily Functional Medicine treatment of Type II Diabetes, Thyroid Disorders, Cognitive Decline, and Autoimmune disease. Dr. Riser has made it a priority to help the Carolina region combat a devastatingly high incidence of chronic disease and obesity through Functional Medicine, Paleo, and nutraceutical interventions.

    When Does Fasting Cross the Line?

    When Does Fasting Cross the Line?

    Fasting is generally healthy when done properly. The same goes for exercise and carb restriction. These behaviors help many people; but they can also be unhealthy for certain people or when used too much or in the wrong circumstances.
    Today I’d like to wade into potentially controversial waters and talk about when fasting potentially crosses the line into disordered eating territory.

Great source of health info

Brad Kearns 5 stars, Elle 3 stars.
I specifically don’t like how Elle coddles her more famous guests, and ignores when they say things that we know she disagrees with. Brad is a consistent and reliable source of cutting edge health info.

Love Elle!

I love when she’s the host. She has a great voice, has great guests, and asks great questions. Brad is good - and fun. But, I have a hard time listening to his voice and don’t like his interviewing style. Very informative podcast - every time there’s a new podcast I give it a listen.

Anything with Elle or Mark - 100%, Kearns No thanks!

I love all things Mark Sisson and Elle Woods is an excellent radio hostess. Brad Kearns however needs professional coaching. His stop/start, delay between words is so aggravating I cannot listen no matter how interest in content. Brad seems a great guy but he's not good at audio.
