Today’s show is about functional medicine with the talented and dedicated Dr. Stephen Wander. He has a multifaceted approach to solving your chronic issues, such as diabetes and thyroid disease, that most conventional medicine practitioners can’t treat without plying you with numerous prescriptions often leaving you feeling worse than when you started.
As Dr. Stephen was growing up, he watched his grandmother suffer and die of diabetes and thyroid issues. He watched her being fed more and more medications, making matters worse, not better. As he watched conventional treatments fail, he was inspired to study nutrition and chiropractic, then functional medicine to solve chronic problems that Western medicine does not do well with.
His work is well-known nationally and has been featured in popular magazines and television shows and is the author of “Reverse Your Diabetes, Change Your Life” and “Secrets to Weight Loss Success.”
He runs a successful clinic in Rockville MD where people are waiting in line to get treatment. I was lucky enough to procure an interview with him.
