Join Dr. Jade and Erin Holt, a seasoned functional nutritionist, as they unpack the realities of functional medicine. Listen in as Eric shares her personal journey to becoming a functional nutritionist and the contentious relationship between dietetics and the American Beverage Association. Erin walks you through her unique approach that harmonizes nutrition with energy work, empowering individuals to become their own healers. Learn about how functional medicine is employed to trace and address the root cause of physical and mental health conditions and guide people to their most fulfilled lives.
Erin also contrasts traditional medicine with functional medicine, shedding light on certain limitations in treating chronic illness. She explains the oversimplified approach functional medicine often takes to treat complex conditions, its propensity to swap supplements for drugs, and the impact of the burgeoning supplement industry on the field. This conversation further reveals the disconnection between evidence-based practices and the current state of functional medicine. Erin and Dr. Jade emphasize the necessity for practitioners to uphold each other to a higher standard and grasp the underlying mechanisms of the protocols they use.
In this discussion, Erin and Dr. Jade also touch on the concept of 'one right way' to heal, highlighting how this mindset can be harmful to those seeking help. They discuss how broadening our perspectives can provide room for growth. They then shift focus to the importance of belief in one's healing journey, discussing the role of mindset, beliefs, outdoor time, natural light exposure, exercise, diet, and individualized medicine that takes into account individual circumstances and access to resources. Tune in to learn how to harness the power of belief to fuel your healing journey.
