    EP 11: The Functional Medicine Approach

    EP 11: The Functional Medicine Approach

    The diagnostic approach taken by a functional medicine doctor is multifaceted and can often be the determining factor in what sets a patient back onto a path of wellness. In today’s episode, Dr. Minni proves the truth of this statement by telling the story of a patient of hers who had been on a keto diet but bizarrely still had very high cholesterol levels. Dr. Minni explains the process of taking a deep dive into the patient’s history, looking at many factors that could be increasing his cholesterol or promoting his insulin resistance. The bulk of today’s episode is spent detailing the many different tests that were conducted on the patient, the imbalances they revealed, and the consequences of these for the patient as far as nutrition and wellness. Ultimately what it all points toward is that the patient had a body type that could not break down fat properly, meaning the keto diet, which usually does a good job of preventing insulin-resistant diseases, was in fact a poor fit for him. Hence the main lesson from today is that that the maintenance of good health cannot take a one-size-fits-all method, and this observation is all thanks to functional medicine. Tune in and hear the full story!

    EP 10: Chiropractic Care with Dr. Dustin Etemadi

    EP 10: Chiropractic Care with Dr. Dustin Etemadi

    Back pain is the sixth most expensive medical condition in the United States, with over 16 million adults reporting to experience chronic or persistent back pain. Those who suffer from back pain are more likely to use healthcare services than those without. Despite the prevalence of this condition, conventional medicine only has tools to help people to manage their pain, rather than get to the root cause and eliminate it. Chiropractic is often considered a controversial alternative medicine practice, yet it takes a holistic approach to treat pain that achieves results time and again. Dr. Dustin Etemadi is a chiropractor who specializes in non-surgical spinal decompression, and he takes a holistic approach to muscular-skeletal conditions. He treats patients of all ages and is located in Panther Creek Village in the Woodlands. In today’s episode, Dustin sheds light on the chiropractic approach to pain, and how chiropractors view the body and its interconnectivity. Much like functional medicine doctors, chiropractors understand that underneath a symptom is an underlying cause that needs to be treated. We hear about what happens when you leave problems untreated, why there is a divide between chiropractic and conventional medicine, and the danger of inflammation. Dustin stresses just how important it is to ensure your body is not inflamed so that it can do its job and heal itself. Tune in for this insightful conversation.
