EP 160 - A Cure for Loneliness
For many, our current healthcare system isn’t working.

Conventional medicine doesn’t provide the care needed to uncover the root causes of chronic disease, and expensive insurance premiums keep underprivileged communities from accessing appropriate care. 

James Maskell has spent the last decade sparking debate and innovating at the cross section of functional medicine and community. His Functional Forum helps healthcare professionals explore alternate routes to insurance, predictive and preventative medicine best practices, and learn more about group visits, in which multiple patients experiencing the same issue can seek treatment together.  

Listen as James Haskell joins Dr. Taz to discuss the evolution of medicine and a cure for loneliness.
