What is the future of healthcare technology? In this episode of Augusto Digital Insights' healthcare series, Brian Anderson interviews Dr. Kyle Hoedebecke, Medical Director of Oscar Health—the first health insurance company built around a full stack technology platform and a relentless focus on serving its members. In this episode, Brian Anderson interviews Dr. Kyle Hoedebecke, Medical Director of Oscar Health—the first health insurance company built around a full stack technology platform and a relentless focus on serving its members. The company offers a unique virtual care experience from the comfort of your home, at work, or on-the-go—by video chat or phone. Kyle is also an angel investor and a mentor with a focus on healthcare technology, like wearables, AI, AR/VR, 3D-printing, bio-pharma, and more. He didn't take a traditional physician's path, but rather started at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. From there, he was part of the lucky 1% of his class that got to go directly to medical school at the Uniformed Services University. Kyle specialized in family medicine, before traveling throughout about 120 countries. Along the way, he picked up 3 additional languages: German, Spanish, and Guarani—an indigenous language from Paraguay. While in South Korea, Kyle earned master's degrees in business administration, public administration, and telemedicine. Now, at Oscar Health, he's able to follow his passion of innovation within healthcare startups. The company calls itself half technology, half insurance. They provide free telemedicine to all Oscar members and a concierge service to help members process claims or get a specialty referral. Kyle's personal goal is to make our healthcare system better for everyone through technology and improved systems. So he has become an angel investor for health technology. He shares about a 3D printer for pharmaceuticals, calling it “a pharmacy from anywhere you want.” He believes this can be incredibly helpful for remote areas or during natural disasters. Brian and Kyle also discuss a variety of wearable technology—like smartwatches and portable stethoscopes—that can facilitate healthcare in areas with too few physicians. We're grateful for Dr. Kyle Hoedebecke's time on the Augusto Health IT podcast and wish him the best of luck in all his endeavors.
In this episode, we are joined by Robert Karpinos, MD, Assistant Vice President, Medical Director of Perioperative Services and Chairman Department of Anesthesiology at St. Barnabas Hospital, The Bronx, NY, to discuss how pain management has evolved in recent years, what to know about The Joint Commission's new emphasis on narcotic avoidance, how providers can create pain management programs that limit narcotic exposure but still adequately manage patients' pain and more.This episode is sponsored by Somnia Anesthesia.
Why is there still a massive diagnosis gap for endometriosis? Since pain has been normalized in many women, it is often overlooked. Listen up to learn: The likelihood of experiencing endometriosis How endometriosis is similar to acne What we need in the future of endometriosis treatment Dr. Dan Martin, the EndoFound Scientific and Medical Director, discusses the root causes and developments in endometriosis treatment and diagnosis. Despite the severity of symptoms and the negative impacts of endometriosis on emotional stability, it has long been ignored. For several reasons, many women struggling with endometriosis have been ignored or misdiagnosed for decades. With the de-normalization of pain and advancements of treatment options, the diagnosis of endometriosis can happen much earlier. This accurate diagnosis is critical in adequately treating this often-debilitating condition. To learn more, visit endofound.org. Episode also available on Apple Podcasts: http://apple.co/30PvU9C
Today we discuss a popular hospital-based job that can also serve as a stepping stone to the C-suite. It is the position of CDI medical director. CDI is the acronym for clinical documentation improvement, or more commonly today, clinical documentation integrity. I have interviewed two CDI specialists in the past. One worked primarily as an independent CDI consultant, and the other worked as a physician advisor for a large consulting firm. Here are the questions answered in today's presentation: What is CDI? What does a CDI physician advisor or medical director do? Where do I get training and experience for this job? How do I prepare to apply for my first CDI job? What is the typical salary? What are the long-term options for those working in CDI? A hospital CDI job is excellent in its own right. But it is also a good way to position yourself for a revenue cycle job at a healthcare consulting company, or a more lucrative leadership position in hospital management. The lifestyle and pay are good. Home-based or on-site work are available. And opportunities for advancement are excellent.

“The students are fascinated to see that someone who ordinarily they know behind the couch can be on the stand and try to influence social justice, and influence foster care systems, influence schools, churches and often corporations.” Episode Description: We begin by recalling Dr. Kliman's 92nd birthday request of inviting trainees to participate in his work with the Harlem Family Institute and the Harlem Psychoanalytic Institute. He presents clinical examples especially around the issue of giving voice to those who suffered trauma. His teaching includes demonstrating how an analyst engages with the legal system in order to seek justice for ignored victims. We also discuss his recent thinking on PTSD and the altruistic communicative aspects of otherwise individually disabling symptoms. We close with his sharing with us his precarious health, the impact of his Holocaust family history, and the usefulness of his current analysis. Our Guest: Gilbert Kliman, MD.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Paleovalley.If I had one “medicine” to take with me anywhere in the world to heal people it would be food. Real food contains thousands of molecules, each designed to regulate and optimize the functions of your body—your gene expression, hormones, brain chemistry, immune system, gut microbiome, and more. In this episode, I talk to Tom Bilyeu, Lewis Howes, Dr. Elizabeth Boham, Dr. Shebani Sethi Dalai, and Fred Provenza about the power of using food as medicine. Tom Bilyeu is a filmmaker and serial entrepreneur who chased money hard for nearly a decade and came up emotionally bankrupt.

Bilyeu then turned his attention to the other pandemic facing society, the poverty of poor mindset and co-founded the media studio, Impact Theory with his business partner and wife, Lisa Bilyeu. Lewis Howes is a New York Times Bestselling author of the hit book, The School of Greatness. He is a lifestyle entrepreneur, high-performance business coach, and keynote speaker. A former professional football player and two-sport All-American, he is a current USA Men's National Handball Team athlete.Dr. Elizabeth Boham is Board Certified in Family Medicine from Albany Medical School, and she is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and the Medical Director of The UltraWellness Center.

If we want to recover from pain, we must first understand how it works. He also shares the role of medication and lifestyle changes and how chronic pain treatments work differently for each person. What's important is to become active and involved in your recovery process. If you want to learn more about chronic pain treatment and how to break free from chronic pain, this episode is for you. Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode: Learn how pain works and why it's more complicated than just a mechanical function of your body.

Episode Highlights [04:10] Dr Kal's Career Dr Kal is trained as a sports and exercise physician. He oversees the medical needs of athletes and regular people. Through his work and experience, he observed that the severity of injuries could not predict the outcome. There were cases of minor injuries leading to terrible outcomes and vice versa. These experiences led him to learn more about the science of pain and work with the organisation Pain Revolution. [06:52] Why Pain is Complicated We're taught that pain is mechanical. But, bodies do not produce pain, per se. The body only produces electrical signals that our sensory nerves pick up. Your pain response is dependent on how much danger your brain thinks you're in. Injuries are not always proportionate to pain. Pain has physical, contextual and sociological contributing factors. Listen to the full episode to hear two stories about people who ignored — and created! — pain based on their circumstances! [13:42] How Pain Works Pain is more complicated than we think. Thresholds don't explain pain completely either. Your context plays a significant role in how you perceive and experience pain. There are other factors that contribute to you experiencing more pain, such as stress, living through a pandemic, your beliefs and expectations. [14:52] Responding to Pain Lisa shares how there are various kinds of pain in her life. These include the changes women undergo at different times in their cycles. Learn to accept that there is a lot involved with pain. Understanding and acceptance will help you change your pain response. Pain can become a habit. Injuries create a direct channel to the brain, which can remain even after someone's body heals. This is called sensitisation. While there are medications designed to stop this direct channel, the best method is to develop habits for desensitising this pain pathway. [21:09] The Role of Distractions and Neurotransmitters We often experience higher levels of pain at night because nothing distracts us from the pain. This then leads to sleep deprivation and fatigue, creating a cycle of pain. People naturally develop intuitive strategies like distracting themselves from pain. You can transform your pain experience by manipulating your neurotransmitters through a re-adaptive program. Through this process, you change people's thoughts and actions. [23:51] Medication is Not Always the Answer for Chronic Pain Treatment The brain naturally contains morphine-like chemicals. Pain medication doesn't work for everyone. Some people are pain-sensitive and medication-resistant. Too much medication can also lead to addiction and negatively impact your health. [28:50] The Hardships of People with Chronic Pain People find it easier to empathise with those whose sicknesses are visible. People with chronic pain often end up in a vicious cycle of social breakdown because there's little understanding and compassion for the condition. Not only that, pain makes people more irritable. [31:06] Options for Chronic Pain Treatment Meditation as a chronic pain treatment is slowly becoming more mainstream in the medical profession. One method will not work for everyone as people relate to different things. It's vital to build an individualised program for chronic pain treatment or management. Remember that pain is not harmful. It's just a protective mechanism. It's common to hear that we need to learn to live with the pain, but this may not be effective for everyone. Tune in to the full episode to hear Dr Kal talk about his work with Pain Revolution and the graded exposure program. [34:56] Find What Works for You It's difficult for doctors to understand your situation and condition fully. It would be best for you to take charge of your health by doing your research. Question treatments and methods. Don't blindly accept answers. However, when you start to read online resources, you also need to be wary of false information. Be careful how you interpret science and research. [44:01] Seeking Science-Backed Treatments Your health is an interconnected system. Pain can be a signal for many things. Become more involved in your health; start with lifestyle changes. Be careful with placebo treatments. There are cases where sugar pills seem to work because the brain believes that they will. Placebo treatments' effectiveness will wane eventually and lead people to seek more aggressive types of interventions. What's most important is understanding what methods work, their benefits and safety concerns before applying anything. [47:24] The Pain Revolution Approach Learn how pain works. There are a lot of reliable resources available that you can consult. Pain Revolution has an annual outreach cycling tour. They also have a two-year course for local pain educators. Dr Kal hopes for the community to grow and focus on non-interventional techniques for chronic pain treatment. Know that you can adapt to pain. There is a way to recover. 7 Powerful Quotes ‘I like to think of pain in terms of not causes but contributors. The physical side is important… but it's only one contribution of many.' ‘By just getting people to conceptualise their pain properly, we can make a difference.' ‘The best model exists for understanding pain is that anytime we feel pain, or for that matter, all the sensations we feel, which are essentially produced by our brain, there are a lot of things going on at the same time.' ‘When pain persists, it takes a lot less contribution from the physical component to produce the same pain. Sometimes, no contribution at all and people remain in pain.' ‘I think the key thing is to try and avoid being too passive in your own health because reliance on external fixes can be a problem. A lot can be achieved by lifestyle changes.' ‘The people who do well in things like pain or recovery from injuries are often the people who have elected not to listen to the things they have been told.' ‘If you've got a problem, you just need to create that adaptation pathway for yourself, which doesn't just involve the injury.' About Dr Kal Dr Kal Fried is a proud member and Medical Director of Pain Revolution. Before being recruited, he was involved in the group's first Rural Outreach Tour in 2017. Dr Kal is an independent medico-legal examiner who has consulted with the Transport Accident Commission and WorkSafe as a medical advisor. He was admitted as a Fellow of the Australian College of Sports and Exercise Physicians in 1995. Ever since then, he's helped sporting teams at all levels and across disciplines. From his experience, Dr Kal observed how the context of pain consistently predicted clinical outcomes. He often shares his findings and observations on pain science and chronic pain treatment on his website. He is also part of the Rehabilitation Medicine Group focused on creating re-adaptive programs for people in pain. Interested to learn more about Dr Kal's work? Check out his website.

Colorado and Washington became the first states to fully legalize the recreational use of marijuana back in 2012. Since then, many states have followed. Although marijuana is usually a natural and non-harmful drug, researchers do not know the effect THC can have on a fetus during the prenatal period or on infants during breastfeeding. As a start, researchers set out to understand how much THC is excreted in breast milk and for how long. Today, I am happy to be speaking with my colleagues, Dr. Maya Bunik & Dr. Erica Wymore. Dr. Bunik is the Medical Director for our Child Health Clinic and is a Professor for General Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and ButcherBox.Stress is almost synonymous with our modern lifestyles. We experience external stressors from our jobs, family responsibilities, financial worries, and many other places, then compound them with unhealthy lifestyle choices. The result is an epidemic of stress and increased risk for chronic diseases. In this episode, I talk to Wim Hof, Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, and Dr. Elizabeth Boham about how to take control of our minds and bodies through cold therapy, breathwork, and mindset and meditation techniques that can help us tap into our innate inner power.Wim Hof, also known as “The Iceman,” holds multiple world records for his feats of endurance and exposure to cold, include climbing Mount Everest in nothing but a pair of shorts, running across the Namibian desert at 104°F without drinking any water, and sitting in an ice bath for 1 hour and 52 minutes. He has proven in eight university research studies that he can consciously influence his autonomic nervous system, measurably reduce inflammation, regulate his internal pH levels and body temperature, and activate his immune system to resist the effects of poisonous endotoxins. These studies also show that Wim is able to teach others to achieve similar accomplishments in as little as four days through the Wim Hof Method.Dr. Rangan Chatterjee is regarded as one of the most influential doctors in the UK and wants to change how medicine will be practiced for years to come. He hosts the biggest health podcast in Europe, Feel Better, Live More. His first book, How to Make Disease Disappear, is an international bestseller all over the world and has sold over 250,000 copies worldwide in just 18 months. Dr. Chatterjee is known for finding the root cause of people's health problems, and he has highlighted his methods in the ground-breaking BBC television show, Doctor in the House, which has been shown in over 70 countries around the world. Dr. Elizabeth Boham is Board Certified in Family Medicine from Albany Medical School, and she is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and the Medical Director of The UltraWellness Center. Dr. Boham lectures on a variety of topics, including Women's Health and Breast Cancer Prevention, insulin resistance, heart health, weight control and allergies.

Walmart is the world's largest retailer with revenues surpassing $120 billion and more than 10,000 locations across the globe. With nearly 5,000 locations in the United States, 90% of Americans live within 10 miles of a Walmart store.No conversation about the role retailers are playing in healthcare disruption would be complete without including Walmart. So to close a thee part series of retail interviews that also included the Chief Medical Officer at Walgreens and Chief Strategy Officer at CVS Health, Keith Figlioli spoke with Walmart's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. John Wigneswaran, for this episode of Healthcare is Hard.Dr. Wig, as he‘s known, says he never expected to be working at Walmart when he was in medical school. And in fact, even though his father was a pediatrician, a career in medicine seemed to be a remote possibility early in life when he was following his passion for music and signing a record deal. But since then, Dr. Wig has led an impactful career with a variety of roles in the pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare services industries, after more than a decade of clinical experience as a practicing nephrologist.Before joining Walmart this year, Dr. Wig was CMO at Express Scripts. He also served as CMO at DaVita Rx, VP of Market Development at Fresenius Medical Care, and Medical Director in medical affairs at Johnson & Johnson (Scios Inc.), among other roles.Dr. Wig's conversation with Keith Figlioli about Walmart's growing role in healthcare covered a number of topics including:Meeting people where they are. Dr. Wig says that finding ways to fit health care into peoples' day to day activities is a core focus for Walmart. This allows people to avoid rearranging their lives around traditional healthcare structures, and also expands the type of care available to them. Walmart's omnichannel capabilities can provide the flexibility that people need – especially when it comes to complex and costly interventions around chronic diseases. For example, this could include a person with diabetes being educated about healthy foods or a telepharmacy encounter for someone with an educational need.Building community trust. Most retail settings are about more than just shopping, according to Dr. Wig. People go to their local Walmart store for many reasons, some to simply walk indoors for the exercise, but overall for a sense of community. Dr. Wig says trust is becoming much more local and recognizes the opportunity and responsibility Walmart has to be a place where people can turn for their healthcare needs.The power of data. Walmart has long been known as a pioneer in the way it uses data to improve operations and better serve customers. The company can apply that same know-how and discipline to using data in way that can improve healthcare. Dr. Wig says the company is very focused on the privacy and security aspects of healthcare data and determining how to bring its many sources of data to bear in a safe and responsible way.To hear Dr. Wig and Keith talk about these topics and more, listen to this episode of Healthcare is Hard.

In this episode, I have a conversation with my teacher and one of the leading therapist in the field of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Dr. Charlie Swenson. Charlie gives us the run-down on how to sit with uncomfortable feelings and why radical acceptance is a skill we all terribly need. He discusses why perfectionism doesn't work, our profound need for connection to help us with cravings.. and life, and why validation is so important. Hear it from *the* expert himself - this is a must-listen! Dr. Charlie Swenson, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, attended Harvard College and Yale Medical School. Trained in psychiatry at Yale University and in psychoanalysis at Western New England Psychoanalytic Institute, he went on to direct long-term inpatient and day treatment programs for individuals with borderline disorders in New York while on faculty of Cornell Medical School. He implemented both psychoanalytic and DBT models in these programs. While on faculty at University of Massachusetts Medical School, and as a Medical Director for the Department of Mental Health, he implemented DBT throughout the public sector of Western Massachusetts. Meanwhile, he was engaged in training thousands of clinicians in DBT workshops and supervision, published more than two dozen articles on the treatment of borderline patients in various settings, and maintained his own private practice with adults, families, and adolescents. In 2016, Charlie published a book, DBT Principles in Action: Change, Acceptance, and Dialectics.

Lowering Stress for Optimum Health Part 2: What is Vagal Tone? Dr. Jason Jones Elizabeth City NC, Chiropractor The vagus nerve is simply described as the longest nerve in the body which originates as cranial nerve 10 in the brain. It travels down from the brain to the neck and then passes around important organs throughout the body, including the digestive system, pancreas, liver, spleen, lungs, and heart. The vagus nerve is a key part of your parasympathetic nervous system, which controls the “rest and digest” function, countering the “fight or flight” function of the sympathetic nervous system. The vagus nerve influences many functions in the body, including digestion, breathing, and heart rate, all of which impact your overall health. However, one thing you need to pay special attention to is the “tone” of your vagus nerve. The vagal tone is an internal biological process that determines the activities of the vagus nerve. What is vagal tone? The vagal tone is key to the activity of your parasympathetic nervous system. It is measured by tracking both your heart rate and your breathing rate. When you breathe in, your heart rate speeds up a little, and when you breathe out, your heart rate slows down a little. The bigger the difference between your inhalation and exhalation heart rate, the high your vagal tone. So when you have a higher vagal tone, it means that your body can quickly relax after a period of stress. What is the implication of a high vagal tone? High vagal tone helps to improve many body functions, causing: Lower blood pressure Better blood sugar regulation Improved digestion via increased production of digestive enzymes Reduced risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease Reduced migraines Less anxiety Better mood Higher resilience One of the interesting functions of the vagus nerve is that it reads your gut microbiome and activates a response to control inflammation based on whether it detects pathogens or non-pathogens. This way, your gut microbiome can have an influence on your stress levels, mood, and overall inflammation. What is the implication of low vagal tone? Low vagal tone is found to be associated with depression, cardiovascular conditions and stroke, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, cognitive impairment, and a higher rate of inflammation conditions, including all autoimmune diseases (autoimmune thyroid condition, endometriosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and more). Much research has shown positive feedback between high vagal tone and good overall health. Hence, the more you increase your vagal tone, the more your mental and physical health will improve. Dr. Mladen Golubic, Medical Director of the Cleveland Clinic, states that “The vagal response reduces stress. It reduces your blood pressure and heart rate. Stimulates digestion, and changes the function of certain parts of the brain, and all those things that happen when we are relaxed.” However, do you know that studies have shown that vagal tone can be passed on from mother to child? If you are depressed or anxious during pregnancy, you tend to have lower vagal activity, and once you give birth, your child has a higher chance of having low vagal activity, and low serotonin and dopamine levels. That's more reason why you should learn how to strengthen your vagal tone naturally. You can consult Dr. Jason at our chiropractic office at Elizabeth City, NC, to learn about natural ways to stimulate and strengthen your vagus nerves. This will help to improve your mental, physical, and overall well-being.

People who are just more just metabolically healthier are going to have healthier stem cells. The sicker you are, the sicker your stem cells are. Stem cells send out signals.

Three major factors contribute to chronic inflammation: Stress Lack of exercise Smoking [03:45] What Is Happening To Our Skin As We Age Damage from the sun is going to cause spots on the skin. Some spots are also hormonal things like melasma, which you can get from hormonal changes. The number one thing you could do for your skin is actually to protect it from the sun. Getting burnt is not good for your skin. Regular sun exposure will cause DNA damage to the skin. Plus, it can contribute to faster aging. Dr. Killen says to put sunscreen on your face. [07:50] Getting A Healthy Balance of Autophagy and mTOR Through Fasting Even with a few hours of fasting, you can start to see increased stem cell production. With longer fasts, you will have more effects systemically on stem cells. With fasting, we see an increase in autophagy and cellular cleanup. The best part of fasting is that it's free! [12:15] Exercise For Anti-Aging: How Often and How Intense Should Your Workouts Be? You need at least three or four days of heavy lifting. Weights are really important for creating hormones like testosterone and growth hormones. Heavy lifting exercises should be at least thirty minutes to an hour. Plus, you should do thirty minutes of aerobic activity a day. [13:20] Antiseptic Mouthwash Is Bad For You: Dr. Killen Explains The Problem Antiseptic mouthwash kills the bacteria in the mouth. When there are no bacteria in your mouth, it prevents you from making nitric oxide from food. Nitric oxide is essential for sexual health and erections. If you're using antiseptic mouthwash and you're taking an antacid, it can decrease your sexual function. [19:00] The Role That High Glucose Levels Can Play on Your Sexual Function Glucose will create inflammation. You want to have good blood flow to your sexual organs. If you have chronic inflammation, then you will have a lack of blood flow going to your genitalia. Hormones like testosterone will also be affected by high sugar levels. [23:35] Peptides: Enhancing The Body's Ability To Protect and Repair Itself Peptide is just a fancy name for a short protein. There are now hundreds of peptides out there. Most of them come from proteins that we already have in our bodies. All of us can use a little bit of extra repair and recovery; peptides are great for that. Check out Rapid Rebound here: https://ketokamprebound.com/ Rapid Rebound is a unique formulation of BPC157, AOD, and Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) that works synergistically to enhance the body's ability to protect and repair itself so you can reach all of your performance goals. [32:55] The Benefits of Red Light Therapy Red light therapy will help with skin healing rejuvenation. We can see an increase in stem cell activation with red light and near-infrared light as well. Plus, there's the mitochondrial energy production that people always talk about with red light therapy. Red light therapy can have a lot of effects on stem cell production. Lastly, red lights feel great! AND MUCH MORE!

Here to help us understand the landscape for pediatric COVID and help us with the science and data we need to talk to families are Dr. Anu Kalaskar, Medical Director of Infectious Disease and Joseph Kurland, Infection Preventionist, at Children's Minnesota.

Much of what is thought about hormone replacement therapy is outdated and untrue. We do a deep dive into what is HRT, what are the benefits, and who should and should not be taking it. What happens during a women's hormone journey from childhood to post-menopausal? How are hormones and a woman's brain connected? What happens in a women's body during menopause? What is hormone replacement therapy? Does HRT increase the risk of breast cancer? What is the relation between hormones and the cardiovascular system? How does menopause impact sleep? Dr. Rebecca Dunsmoor-Su is the Medical Director of Menopause services at the Women's Wellness and Gyn Specialties Clinic at Swedish Medical Center. She is also the Chief Medical Officer at Gennev. Dr. Dunsmoor-Su joins us on the SuperAge podcast for an information-dense episode all about menopause. She explains what happens leading up to and during menopause, some of the symptoms like weight gain, trouble sleeping, brain fog, and how they are addressed, how we can use hormone replacement therapy to improve symptoms and longevity for women post-menopause, and much more. What you will learn in this episode:What a woman's body goes through in terms of hormones from childhood all the way through post-menopause The impact of menopause on the brainEverything we need to know about hormone replacement therapy and some of the myths around itHow menopause impacts sleep and what can help How menopause impacts brain health and the cardiovascular system “Estrogen replacement does not cause breast cancer. And I like to shout that from the rooftops. We have many studies that tell us that estrogen replacement does not cause breast cancer.” “Women who start hormone replacement therapy within 5 years of their last period actually reduce their cardiovascular risk. They also slightly reduce their risk of colon cancer and they reduce their all cause mortality overtime.” “When women are transitioning through menopause, we're talking about 5-10 years of disrupted sleep. That's a lot of impact to the brain.” “Menopause is fine and functional if you're going to live to be 65. You've got 10 years to survive menopause, you're going to be okay. We live to 95, 100, 105! That's a long time, that's almost half your life without the hormones that sort of keep things going. So I think that we need to adjust.” Listen to the SuperAge podcast wherever you get your pods.

What is your role as professor of health systems science? Can you tell us some history of payment models in the US?What will be the tipping point to changing from FFS to PFV payment models? Have there been studies that prove PFV is superior to FFS payment? How can we provide better care for lower cost to marginalized groups? Where does the transition to Pay-for-Value start?How do physicians get paid under Pay-for-Value?Who defines positive outcomes? Does Pay-for-Value incentivize selecting healthy patients? Quotes and Ideas: The transition from Fee-for-Service to Pay for Value A transition to Pay-for-Value will not fix all the issues we see in health care Capitation model: a fixed fee per patient do deliver care throughout the year “The alternative to mandates is not nirvana, the alternative is how it's always been.”“Payment is a powerful motivator” Book Suggestions: “The Long Fix” by Vivian Lee
Dr. Anna Lembke is a psychiatrist and the Medical Director of Addiction Medicine at Stanford University and a much sought-after expert in the field of addiction. In her new book, DOPAMINE NATION (out now), Dr. Lembke explores exciting new scientific discoveries that explain why the relentless pursuit of pleasure leads to pain, while also offering practical solutions for how to manage compulsive overconsumption, providing a clear way back to a balanced life. Dr. Lembke offers practical solutions for how to manage overconsumption, including dopamine fasting and radical honesty – and the lasting advantage to making them a regular practice. At the root of much of today's mental anguish is dopamine, which according to Dr. Lembke triggers, gambling, and addictions to food, smoking, cannabis, alcohol, gaming, social media, drugs, and other substances and pleasures. DOPAMINE NATION is a fascinating look into the whole spectrum, from indulgence to dangerous addictions, and Dr. Lembke's strategy of combining the science of desire with the wisdom of recovery is essential in this age overconsumption. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/john-aidan-byrne0/support

We are thrilled to introduce today's guest, Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy. Dr. Connealy is a prominent leader in the Integrative and Functional Medical field with over 30 years of experience taking the best of all sciences, including homeopathic and conventional treatments for cancer, chronic illnesses, nutrition, and lifestyle approach. She is the Medical Director of two unique clinics in Irvine, CA: The Center for New Medicine and the Cancer Center for Healing. The combined clinics have become the largest integrative medical clinic in North America and are visited by patients worldwide, with 65,000 patients and growing. The Center For New Medicine focuses on prevention and internal medicine, early detection of disease and cancer, human optimization, yearly physicals, auto-immune disease, natural hormone replacement, chronic issues, and aesthetics. Dr. Connealy feels we must treat “the whole person” - the patient with the disease and not the disease of the patient while determining the origin of the illness. Dr. Connealy created the Cancer Center for Healing because of the epidemic spreading of cancer. Patients receive scientifically based treatments along with integrative protocols. She has created an acute awareness for the need to focus on cancer prevention, providing unique testing to determine the early stages of cancer, years before a scan reveals or recognizes it. For example, through RGCC genetic testing, Dr. Connealy and her skilled team can create personalized treatment plans for early to late-stage cancer patients. She has discovered that there are many factors that can contribute to the disease process and many modalities can help to reverse it, including spending the proper time with each patient. Dr. Connealy and her team of practitioners make this happen each day at her multi-disciplined “state of the art” clinic while providing quality life treatments. Dr. Connealy is the author of two books, “Be Perfectly Healthy” published in 2009 and “The Cancer Revolution” in 2017, which has revolutionized the landscape of medicine. In 2017, she was named one of the top 50 functional & integrative doctors in the country. In 2018, Dr. Connealy began a TV Series as host of “Dr. Detective TV” airing on the JUL-TV Television Network. In addition, she writes for many publications including Townsend Letter - a prominent medical magazine, featuring Mike Adams, Josh Axe, and Ben Greenfield. She serves on the board for Dr. Josh Axe, ACAM, and ACIM Connect. Dr. Connealy imparts her wisdom in educating medical practitioners from all over the world, as well as public speaking engagements, webinars, and podcasts that include: The Truth About Cancer with Ty & Charlene Bollinger, Answer to Cancer with Dr. Patrick Gentempo, a variety of series with Nathan Crane, Kellyann Petrucci, Ryan Sternagel, Jonathan Otto, Lynne McTaggart, Ben Greenfield, and Dr. Mercola. In today's fantastic conversation we discuss treating the whole person, why people get sick and different types of prevention. We also dive into breast cancer, cancer in general, and how your mindset and stress levels can impact how you can cure cancer. Dr. Connealy shares her four pillar approach to healing, and offers so many fantastic tips and strategies to implement immediately.

With cancer rates rising it's time to question what has been standard conventional treatment for years and look for a more holistic approach to beating the cancer epidemic. Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy is the Medical Director of two amazing clinics: The Cancer Center For Healing & Center For New Medicine. The combined (30,000 square feet) clinics are the largest Integrative Medical Clinic in North America and visited by patients from all over the world with 47,000 patients and growing. These clinics use the best of both worlds and combine functional holistic homeopathic, as well as conventional protocols for treatment. Dr. Connealy specializes in cancer prevention and treatment (and how unusual is it to hear the word prevention in regards to cancer). She joins me to talk mostly about cancer but also how everything is connected and chronic health and autoimmunity, and metabolic disorders all play a role in our overall health and our cancer risk. Dr. Leigh has revolutionary ideas about what modern medicine should be and I want us all to consider the possibilities if we made these practices more mainstream.
