What is Wellness Medicine? A life lesson.

 

Life is a story and each story is a lesson to be learned.

 

I recently wrote a new chapter in my story.  This chapter would have been one I would rather not have written.  Despite living a healthy lifestyle (yes, I practice what I preach), I recently developed severe hypertension.  Long story short, I was diagnosed with a Pheochromocytoma—a rare tumor of the adrenal gland which secretes high levels of catecholamines (epinephrine and norepinephrine).  This zebra of a diagnosis causes out of control elevated blood pressure, elevated blood sugar, anxiety…  The only known treatment and cure, whether natural or traditional, is the surgical removal of the tumor.

 

This story taught me a very valuable lesson.  A lesson that can be found in the question: what is wellness medicine?

What is wellness and how well are you aging?

Medicine is in need of a paradigm change.   The health of individuals cannot be managed through the disease model of medicine.  The disease model of medicine is good if disease is your focus, but if the goal of the disease model is to diagnose and manage disease, how can wellness be integrated?  It cannot.  A new model is required.  A wellness model is needed.  A model to ask different questions.   A model to search for different answers.  A model to reach for different goals.  A model to focus on wellness and not on disease.

 

No longer can the only question be ‘do you have disease’.  The lack of disease does not indicate the presence of wellness.  Many people don’t have disease, yet they are not well.  How well are you aging?  This question highlights the difference in the disease and the wellness paradigm.  The question is not looking for disease, but is instead looking for the degree of wellness.

 

Are you well?  How well are you aging?

Annual road to weight-loss nowhere.  What is a ketogenic diet?

 

Merry Christmas.  Happy Hannukkah.  Happy New Year.  Tis the season to celebrate.  Tis the season to give.  Tis the season to receive.  Unfortunately, when it comes to the waist line, the season tends to gives back more than it receives.

 

The average American will gain up to 7 pounds over the extended Holiday season.  As a result of the Holiday bulge, many will engage in the annual pilgrimage.   Each New Year, Americans pay homage to tradition and bring a resolution of a new diet to start the new pilgrimage to trim the waistline.  Each year, Americans start down the road to weight-loss nowhere.

 

I would love to say that there is one diet that will fix all waistlines, but there is no perfect diet to fit all metabolic needs.  The key in weight loss is to differentiate fad from science to promote healthy, long-term fat loss and muscle growth.  Many weight loss fads promote water loss, muscle loss and short term weight loss only.  These types of weight loss programs actually set the body up for long term weight loss failure.   I want to take this opportunity to review a well recognized, well researched, but often misunderstood dietary strategy: the ketogenic diet–the diet with benefits beyond weight-loss.

Dr Goodyear speaks at AFMA 2016

Dr. Goodyear was honored to again speak at the American Functional Medicine Association annual meeting in Atlanta, GA.  Dr.img_2523
Goodyear joined an outstanding list of speakers at the 2016 AFMA meeting.  Dr. Goodyear spoke on the topic of ‘Physician Burnout’.

 

The first literary reference to physician burnout was a novel written in 1960 with the first definition of physician burnout originating in 1975.   Over 40 years of research on physician burnout has focused on defining physician burnout, identifying the components of physician burnout, and obtaining statistics of physician burnout.  Despite 40+ years of research, the trend of physician burnout is headed in the wrong direction.  In 2001, the rate of physician burnout was 22%.  The most recent statistics, from 2016, put the rate of physician burnout in excess of 55%.
