You bet it can! The current paradigm of mental illness focuses on neurotransmitter derangements, but these are not the root of the problem in depression/anxiety etc., they are a manifestation of underlying inflammation and metabolic dysfunction. Yes. These imbalances underlie almost all chronic illness, yet western medicine sadly continues to focus on symptoms rather than addressing the root cause. What is causing the metabolic dysfunction and inflammation in many mental illnesses? Find out in this week's Controversial Thoughts video. Note: On Rumble and podcast feeds there is a bit of extra content about schmovid I cannot post here. #theremembering
Throughout my training and practice as a physician I have come to one very disappointing conclusion: Western medicine isn’t helping people lead better lives. Now that I’ve realized this, I’ve become obsessed with understanding what makes us healthy or ill. I want to live the best life I can and I want to be able to share this knowledge with others so that they can do the same. This podcast is the result of my relentless search to understand the roots of chronic disease. If you want to know how to live the most radical life possible I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
