A pediatrician’s journey into integrative medicine
Join us on this episode as we sit down with Kortney West, a pediatrician who shares her personal journey and perspective on the shortcomings of the allopathic medical system. As a physician, mother, and patient, Kortney discusses how her experiences led her to explore integrative and functional medicine to address her son’s health issues. We delve into the importance of recognizing conditions like eczema, asthma, and gut issues as chronic conditions with underlying health problems, rather than considering them normal childhood ailments. Kortney sheds light on the limitations of the traditional medical system and the need for a shift towards comprehensive, root-cause-focused care. Tune in to gain insights into the challenges and transformative potential of integrative medicine, as we explore the evolving role of physicians in questioning conventional practices and prioritizing individualized care.
Kortney West is a pediatrician.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Breaking the cycle of failure in modern medicine.”
