It’s not often I have the opportunity to interview Dr. Bryan Walsh in person, but I managed to pull him aside for a quick chat during his Functional Medicine (+ Family) Tour stop in Santa Clara, CA last weekend. As expected, the course was full of little-known actionable information that health practitioners can use with their clients before resorting to expensive advanced lab testing.

In this podcast, Bryan talks about seeing past the marketing and hype that comes alongside new trends in health science. We discuss the wisdom of spending less time consuming new information and instead mining tried-and-true blood chemistry markers for clues to cellular dysfunction. Bryan is sitting on a goldmine of information collected through years of meticulous research.  There are only 4 stops left on his tour - I highly recommend grabbing yourself a spot before they sell out!
