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.
