Shanti Loustaunou will host the first in what may become a series on everything you wanted to know about Functional Medicine and the ‘New Story’ in medicine. She will be presenting an 90-minute video produced by the Functional Forum followed by discussion in which she hopes to bring together both Professional Health Practitioners and Lay People interested in healing. Some of the information being presented is fairly technical so Shanti hopes that we can use our “community brain” to help each other understand the implications of this new information about healing and medicine.
From the website:
“The Functional Forum is the world’s largest integrative medicine conference, bringing together the latest health news, Functional Medicine research, practice development and health technology in an upbeat, entertaining way.
“We are thrilled to welcome, for the first time live, Dr. Jeffrey Bland, the ‘Father of Functional Medicine’ giving a 30-minute keynote from the cutting edge of genomics… He is joined by Functional Forum fan favorite, Dr. Kelly Brogan who will be celebrating the release of her first book, A Mind of Your Own, giving a talk on what a ‘Leap forward in Medicine’ looks like from her unique perspective.
They are joined on the panel by long-time integrative medicine campaigner John Weeks and the host of the upcoming PBS show on Integrative and Functional Medicine Dr. Gerry Curatola.”
The episode we will view addresses the following questions:
- What is genetic dark matter and how can we influence good heath in our patients?
- What will the leap forward in medicine look like and who will be able to participate?
- What is the emerging role of functional and integrative health professionals in the new medical system?
