James Maskell talks about systems thinking, patient/practitioner engagement, and root cause resolution as the future of medicine. His newest venture, KNEW Health, seeks to change the face of healthcare by adopting a functional medicine model and making healthcare more affordable.
The reason why functional medicine appears expensive. I think it's actually an illusion, right? What what's actually expensive $10,000 per person in America per year is expensive. Humira, at $5,000 per month for a biological, is expensive. Healthcare is expensive, the reason why functional medicine appears expensive, is because it's not included in your medical plan.

One of my favorite tools for cognitive enhancement, especially after long plan rides, is Blue Cannatine. The delivery mechanism is unique (buccle troche). It is especially effective for me on improving short-term memory, focus, and verbal fluency. It’s the closest thing that I found to NZT and I think you guys should try it out.

I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. And the guys at Bstrong did some really cool innovations with their technology. I use it just about every day, high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. And in 20 minutes I have a fantastic workout, which I know is triggering an anabolic response and who doesn’t like that. So if you want to get your Bstrong blood flow restriction device, head on over to bstrong.training and enter the code BOOMER for 10% off.View Company
