Welcome to the Evolution of Medicine podcast! In this episode, we sit down with the indomitable Shilpa P. Saxena, MD, who brings her expert knowledge and wit to a conversation on a hot topic in our industry: functional foods. She sees functional foods as an “idiot-proof” entry-level therapy for functional medicine and describes the five patient personas who are perfect candidates. You’ll be surprised how many patients fit into these categories! In addition, Dr. Saxena talks about leadership in functional medicine, and how her perspective on her own style of leading has changed over the years.
Welcome to the Evolution of Medicine podcast! This episode is the third and final installment in our series with Carrie Jones, ND, MPH and DUTCH Test.

In her own words, she “helps hormonally challenged people feel less crazy” by using testing and her own extensive knowledge to help people understand their hormones so they can feel empowered to take control of their health.
