My job as a Functional Medicine doctor is to be a medical detective—to investigate and address the root causes of problems (not just the symptoms), help people fix the underlying problems that cause their symptoms, and recreate balance in the whole system. Rather than ask “what drug should I use to treat the symptom?” I ask “what is causing the symptom in the first place?”
In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Elizabeth Boham, Dr. Steven Phillips and Dana Parish, and Dhru Purohit about why it’s important to thoroughly investigate to get to the root cause of symptoms.
Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.
Dr. Steven Phillips is a renowned, Yale-trained physician, international lecturer, and media go-to expert. Well-published in the medical literature, he has treated over 20,000 patients with complex, chronic illness from nearly 20 countries. Dr. Phillips experienced firsthand the nightmare of an undiagnosed, serious infection after nearly dying from his own mystery illness. He figured out how to save his own life when 25 doctors could not.
Dana Parish developed Lyme-induced heart failure as a result of being improperly diagnosed by some of the “top” doctors in the country—and had her life saved by Dr. Phillips. A chart-topping Sony/ATV singer/songwriter who has written songs for artists like Celine Dion and Idina Menzel, she has become a major voice in the world of chronic illness. Her popular column on Huffington Post has been read by more than one million people globally.
Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry. His podcast, The Dhru Purohit Podcast, is a top-50 global health podcast with over 30 million unique downloads.
