Our Conversation:

Our discussion is wide ranging on various health and medical topics. We focus around the difference between osteopathic medicine and traditional doctors, as well as things like nutrition and cholesterol. It’s an interesting conversation for sure and we really dig in deep. I know I definitely learned a lot, so I hope you will too.

We discuss:

    • What exactly is osteopathic medicine?
    • Difference in Philosophy between Allopathic (MD) and Osteopathic (DO) medicine approaches.
    • What it is important to treat the whole human being, not just a disease on part of the body.
    • The importance of patient relationships and why its “80% of the healing process”.
    • The importance of teaching a healthy lifestyle, not just handing out prescriptions
    • Insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies, and why there needs to be a change in the medical industry.
    • Diet, stress reduction, and sleep.
    • Being informed properly about your health and seeking out physicians who are holistic or integrative.
    • Contemporary “alternative” approaches in medicine.
    • and so much more!
