The Evolution in Medicine with James Maskell

December 1, 2016

Today we’re talking about an evolution in medicine.

You’ve heard me talk about naturopathic and functional medicine and getting to the root cause of your skin and other health issues, and my guest today shares how you may be able to have greater access to this kind of medicine now and even in the future.

My guest today is James Maskell. James has spent the past decade sparking debate and encouraging a shift toward a wellness-centered, functional medicine model. To that end, he created Functional Forum, the world’s largest integrative medicine conference with record-setting participation online and growing physician communities around the world. He’s also the founder of the Evolution of Medicine, a community e-commerce platform which provides resources, tools, and services, making it easier and more affordable for conventional doctors to embark on a new way of managing healthcare.

James has been featured on TEDMED, Huffpost Live, TEDx and more, and is a contributor to Huffington Post, KevinMD, thedoctorblog and MindBodyGreen.  He serves on the faculty of George Washington University’s Metabolic Medicine Institute, and speaks regularly on the integrative medicine conference circuit. He lives in Venice Beach, California with his wife and daughter. On today’s podcast James talks about the evolution of medicine and what is happening to the shift medicine in the U.S. to a more integrative and community-based approach.

Many of you ask me if I see medicine in our country changing so I’m exciting to share this interview with you today.

The Meaning of Your Life with Elaine Glass

November 17, 2016

Have you ever met someone who constantly has to be occupied? Who always has to be doing something else, meeting up with someone, on their phone texting, or watching a video on Facebook or YouTube? These people are so busy “doing” that they can’t seem to make time to just “be.” Maybe this is someone close to you or maybe you realize it’s YOU!

Our life is fast paced. You probably feel the constant pressure - to be there for others, to get things done, to take care of your children, to workout more, to move faster, to do more. This can leave us feeling anxious, confused, and angry. This can also impact our health and show up on our skin. After a while you may begin to forget who you are or why your life turned out exactly as it has. It’s time to come back to yourself and discover what you really need.

And this is exactly what my guest Elaine Glass is talking about today. Elaine graduated from Northwestern University and chose a profession in dental hygiene. After 30 years, listening to challenging stories from thousands of clients and giving to others and neglecting her needs, she lost sight of her own purpose. Elaine knew something had to change in order to reclaim her worth and honor her truest self. She was on a search for the answer outside herself and expected to find it there. But where she found true peace, solitude, calm, good health and ultimately her purpose was when she chose to listen to and trust her own voice. Elaine has switched gears and now runs a successful coaching practice where she focuses on showing people how to get quiet and listen to identify their truth. She has witnessed hundreds of people within professional and personal relationships thrive because of her methods.

So, for this interview, prepare to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Be ready to embrace your fear. You’re going to learn how to open up to inner wisdom you need to hear.

Impact of Mold Exposure on Your Skin and Health with Dr. Jill Carnahan

November 10, 2016

Today we’re talking about something we haven’t covered before and that’s health and skin problems associated with mold exposure.

Mold exposure can lead to a number of symptoms. Some of the early warning signs show up on the skin and include acne, hives, dermatitis, other rashes. And there can be other symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, memory loss, unexplained pain and a number of other symptoms. If you have these or other symptoms and you haven’t been able to get to the root cause, your answer may be in this podcast.

My guest today is Dr. Jill Carnahan. Dr. Jill received her medical degree from Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine. She is double board-certified in Family Medicine (ABFM) and Integrative Holistic Medicine (ABIHM). Dr. Jill was part of the first 100+ health-care practitioners to be certified in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFMCP). She founded Flatiron Functional Medicine in Boulder, Colorado where she partnered in functional medicine with Dr. Robert Rountree. She recently opened a new medical clinic in Louisville, Colorado. Dr. Jill is a 15-year survivor of breast cancer and Crohn’s disease and is passionate about teaching patients how to “live well” and thrive in the midst of complex and chronic illness. She is also committed to teaching other physicians how to address underlying causes of illness rather than just treating symptoms.

On today’s podcast, we cover how to know if mold exposure may be an issue for you and what to do about it. Dr. Jill covers testing and valuable resources that I think you’ll be interested to hear about. Many of the symptoms of mold exposure can be misdiagnosed with other health conditions, so it’s important to know what to look for because it may be the missing piece for your health.

In addition to his books, whichhave cumulative sales of over six million copies, Dr. Murray has writtenthousands of articles, appeared on hundreds of radio and TV programs, andlectured to hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.
