Chris Kresser is a functional medicine guy. This is from his web site: “While the Functional Medicine approach is all about preventing or reversing chronic illnesses, the conventional approach focuses on disease management. Rather than encouraging true health, conventional practitioners simply diagnose an illness and try to suppress the symptoms with prescription drugs. Those drugs seldom address the root cause of the problem. Instead, they mask symptoms and sometimes even suppress vital bodily functions, leading to unintended side effects—and additional prescriptions to deal with them. That medication treadmill effectively creates patients for life, and it never solves the underlying cause of the illness.”
Mr Kresser takes a thorough look at diets and suggests that all meat is not the answer. Is Carnivore healthy?
And he includes Sarah Ballantyne, PhD discussion of what we should eat and why.
