Naturopathic medicine, holistic medicine, and functional medicine are all different terms for the same holistic approach to healing the body. Today’s guest, Swathi Rao, is a functional medicine practitioner who believes in the pillars of eat well, sleep well, move well and poop well to be well. We begin our conversation with Swathi by asking her what lead her to functional medicine after making her start in traditional healthcare, and what it means to her. Next, we dive into inflammation, leaky gut and the role of gluten, mindful eating and practicing gratitude towards yourself. We dive into the role of supplements versus medication and where each is appropriate and Swathi shares a bit about her most rewarding work. We hope you join us for a wealth of wisdom on functional medicine and holistic health today.
