Episode 197: Better Living Through Lab Tests

with Reed Davis

Do you suspect that you could have more energy or feel better than you currently do? Viewing our bodies as interconnected ecosystems, it follows that these feelings and symptoms are often indicative of different kinds of stressors and upstream problems that are difficult to identify.

Reed Davis agrees and he brings a fascinating perspective to this conversation where we can blend the holistic paradigms of Chinese Medicine and Function Diagnostic Nutrition. In doing so, we start to peel back layers of hidden stressors on our systems to get closer to root issues that lead to effects like fatigue.
