About the Original Book:
In his follow up to the popular personal nutrition tome, The Paleo Cure, author and alternative medicine guru Chris Kresser reveals to the world a revolutionary approach to health care - specifically in preventing and curing chronic diseases. He unearths glaring shortcomings and dysfunction within our current healthcare system, and offers science-based alternatives for how to do things differently.
He introduces the world to Functional Medicine, a collaborative, lifestyle approach to healthcare that focuses on targeting diet, stress, sleep, and a sedentary environment as triggers for ailments such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cancer, crohn's disease, and more. Our genes have become wildly out of alignment with how we live, and Functional Medicine works by identifying those imbalances and implementing focused strategies on how best to promote a healthy existence.
Through eye-opening testimony, scientific data, and stunning case-study evidence, Kresser gives compelling insight into how we can all do better to promote personal health and turn around a healthcare industry that is being run into the ground by pharmaceutical companies, insurance agencies, and politicians.
