Functional medicine is an effective alternative to traditional medicine because it addresses the root causes of chronic diseases and aims to reverse them.
The problem is that it’s an expensive option, making it impossible for most people to access it.
Dr. Robin Berzin, the CEO and founder of Parsley Health, is working hard to change that in her practice, which focuses on making functional medicine more accessible.
Not only do they provide an affordable and effective option, they also aim to train other physicians to do the same thing so that people across the United States can get the help they need.
In today’s episode, you’ll discover why functional medicine is so effective, how Dr. Berzin and her team approach each patient to identify what needs to be addressed, and how they tackle mental health issues.
You’ll also hear more about what Dr. Berzin’s team focuses on and why, the exercises she recommends, and the role your gut microbiome plays in mental health.
Dr. Berzin and Dr. Anthony Gustin also chat about why our health system is so messed up, what the future of that looks like, and how things are changing because of Covid.
Dr. Robin Berzin is a practicing physician who went to medical school at Columbia University and trained in internal medicine at Mount Sinai.
