Today, I am joined by one of my very dear friends and colleagues, Dr. Michelle Peris. Together, we’re sitting down to have a “special edition” episode of the podcast where we explore new and novel approaches to healthcare. Dr. Michell Peris is a Naturopathic Doctor, community builder, speaker, women’s empowerment advocate, and mother. She is truly an innovator when it comes to her utilization of group programming to deliver better health outcomes.

 

Regardless of whether or not you work in healthcare, today’s conversation is incredibly important and relevant. As voters, individuals, and healthcare consumers, we have a huge amount of power to not only make choices around our own healthcare but to actually make choices around leadership whose policy ideas lend themselves to sustainability within healthcare. And more than ever before, we’re in a time and place for disruption, entrepreneurship, and innovative ideas to be brought to the table in our downstream conversations.

 

In this conversation, we take a deep dive into how entrepreneurship and outside-of-the-box thinking actually can lend solutions to a healthcare system that is costing us lives, money, and potential in our own health. We take a look at the incredible healthcare model that Michelle has developed around group health, its capacity to change people’s lives profoundly (and in a highly economically efficient manner), and how she is leading the charge on this new frontier of healthcare.

 

Michelle is absolutely going to blow you away with her mission to support women and the model of care that she has developed in her practice. I truly cannot wait for you all to tune in to this important episode!

Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation into my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics.

Today’s episode is super interesting for those of you who really want to understand what is “below the hood’ of your health!

 

I am joined today by Reed Davis, a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP) and the founder of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN). He has literally trained thousands of practitioners around the world on how to leverage functional testing, how to understand and go deep with functional testing to truly understand what’s happening inside someone’s body and someone’s health.

 

The key to what he’s doing is not necessarily all of the years he has spent in school; it’s the thousands of tests that he has performed on patients over the course of his career. Reed offers such incredible and unique insight in terms of what is going on with our bodies on a functional level not lab testing that just pumps out a value — but lab testing that helps us to understand the intricacies of what is developing and what is going on in our health.

 

In this fascinating episode, Reed gives us a deeper understanding of our susceptibility to viruses, explains the metabolic chaos that can happen when we have hormones that are dysregulated, provides unique insight on the role of stress (and how it plays out in shifting our health over the long term), how our microbiome plays into the overarching status of our health and life, and much more!

 

If there is one thing that I hope you all take away from this episode it is that there is this huge opportunity to understand your bio-individuality and to assess your health. You’re going to be blown away by this conversation today with Reed Davis!

[7:04] About Functional Diagnostic Nutrition and the origin story of its creation.

[11:10] The role of functional testing in an active person who’s engaged in their environment versus genetic testing, and the relationship between these two streams.

[13:30] Reed speaks about the common patterns and sequences he started to see amongst his patients in common ailments — and what it indicates.

[17:18] Reed provides some high-level commentary on the broad global susceptibility right now (especially for viruses like COVID-19) based on environmental influences and global health statuses.

[20:46] Reed shares about the key functional tests that are at the top of his list.

[22:55] The major shifts in patterns that Reed has seen in the last 10 years through running functional tests.

[28:17] What is the most empowering question that patients can ask their practitioner?

[32:26] Patterns that Reed sees on lab tests that are correlated to a positive health status.

[36:41]The importance of “doing” rather than “taking” when it comes to health.

[38:41] Reed shares what he wishes that we would pay more attention to, as a society, that would move the needle globally on our health.

[40:28] Why taking radical responsibility for your health is the gateway to freedom.

[43:00] Reed Davis’ key performance indicators!

[47:30] Where to learn more about the important work Reed Davis is doing in the world!

I truly believe that the functional testing industry has the capacity to transform people’s health. It allows us to look at our health from a lens of not just what’s wrong, but how well our bodies are actually functioning.
