Functional Medicine or Functional Nutrition

July 16, 2011

Dr. Jeffrey Bland who speaks at about 4 min into this video below, has been my Nutritional mentor since 1992.

Dr. Bland  is involved with Metagenics (nutritional company in Calif.) to which many Doctors of Chiropractic, Medicine, and Osteopathy use throughout the US/Canada/Europe– that practice Functional Medicine or more appropriately called Functional Nutrition.

Dr Bland was and is way ahead of his time in regards to why we get sick, hurt, and develop chronic diseases.

Functional Nutrition  is True Health Care.

Actually our Health care system should be called a “Sick care System”.

The typical person usually doesn’t seek treatment until they are already sick.  So it should be called Sick care.

A true Health care system would be people seeking knowledge and advice on staying healthy.
