If you've ever wondered how functional medicine differs from everyday conventional medicine, this is the podcast for you. Dr. J sets out to explore conventional medicine GI workup vs. functional medicine gut-health workup. It's a compare and contrast while looking at what chronic conditions may be missed by conventional medicine.

Most conventional GI doctors follow a typical internal medicine gastroenterologist's best-practice workup. So they'll look at your history, do a physical exam, some palpitations over the stomach and upper stomach area to look for inflammation. Depending on what they find, they may ask for capsule endoscopy, a regular endoscopy, or colonoscopy, barium swallow, ultrasound, breath-testing, and/or blood-testing. They might also do a stool test but they're usually non-specific. This differs from functional medicine because, given symptoms, we may look more specifically for bacterial overgrowth, h.pylori, candida, and more that we want to dive deeper into.

Conventional medicine is checking to see if you are within the "normal" range of conventional standards while we check for what's functionally not working. There's a big difference between functionally optimal and being diseased but pathological. This podcast aims to give you a better understanding of how functional medicine can be so much more specific, in-depth, and seeks to fix the root-cause and get you out of no man's land.

There are about 300,000 new cases of Lyme Disease every single year in the United States. Dr. J aims to help you better protect yourself from similar summertime parasitic infections.

Let's start with Lyme. If you find a tick in your yard, near your house, or on you, it is best to send it to a lab to have it tested so you know if it's carrying Lyme or any coinfections. Next, you want to try to create a barrier in your own yard to kind of push them out. You can do this by using Wondercide (a product with cedar oil), or a mix of essential oils like cedar, olive leaf, peppermint, eucalyptus, pennyroyal, or geranium. You'll also want to buy a little tick kit to have on you in case you find one of you, your family, or pets since it's strongly advised you do not pinch them off.

Moving onto parasitic infections, we're warned of water-borne parasites like Cryptosporidium and Giardia and their symptoms. Dr. J says, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." It's worth noting that these illnesses may present differently in kids, or we may notice it more if they're struggling with mood issues, remember that parasitic infections aren't seen in just their bowel movements. Dr. J expands more into summertime parasite infections and you'll want to stay until the end.

As a clinician, Dr. J sees so many patients that experience nausea, that queasy kind of upset stomach feeling. Of course, Dr. J is not only interested in medical history and providing relief, but as a practitioner of functional medicine, the goal is to find the root cause of that nauseous feeling.

Very possible root causes are h.pylori, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), even stress can trigger histamine and inflammation which can lead to nausea. Some natural relief you may want to try: lemon juice, ginger or ginger tea, peppermint, or chamomile (all three are natural digestive bitters). Dr. J also looks at what kind of testing he'd use to help determine root cause, how clearing infections can help significantly, how the removal of the gallbladder can increase the likelihood of having that nauseous feeling, and some solutions for acute nausea.
