040 | Lifesaving Medicine | with Dr. Lekkos

Western medicine failed me.

It has also failed so many people I know. The more that I learn about the problems with conventional medicine, the more grateful I am for my incredible functional medicine doctor, Dr. Lekkos.

In this episode with the man who saved my life, we discuss how functional medicine is different; my healing journey through Epstein-Barr virus, chronic fatigue, and Sibo disease; and the many ways in which you can advocate for your own health and get to the root of your health issues.

He saved my life, and I know his tips can benefit you as well.
