“I think we need to be curious about our health. We can’t care less about our health than somebody else. We have to be our own best advocate.”

– Dr. Will Cole

We all know that what we put into our body directly impacts our health. But there are a lot of random, everyday things that you would never suspect to be the culprits behind many chronic health issues. Today, Dr. Will Cole, author of The Inflammation Spectrum, talks to Jessica about how you can be your own health advocate and discover your individual sensitivities.

When it comes down to it, many chronic health conditions, or even minor health annoyances, come down to inflammation. For the most part, Western doctors are not trained in functional medicine – rather they are trained to fix emergency situations.

Dr. Will Cole practices functional medicine, a comprehensive system marrying Western medical science with alternative therapies and nutrition. Today, he stopped by The SimplyBe. Podcast to discuss how people can be their own best health advocate.

Listen to find out why inflammation is an apex issue, how to figure out your bio-individuality so you can finally know what things to avoid, and why functional medicine is the medicine of the future.
