Medicine 2.0 - Talk 06 - 1/16/2016: What’s in my water?: The impact of emerging endocrine disruptors and other chemical toxins on health
** The VIMEO password is "smile" **
The content presented focuses on areas of medicine that often require too much time for adequate education within the context of primary care visits, but are likely to have a large impact on health outcomes in the community. There are 12 talks coordinated by Dr. Christopher Bray. All content has been extracted from evidence-based published scientific data. Traditional alternative medicine is a mix of hearsay and pseudoscience, but also includes some very effective therapies. Often “thinking outside the box” is required to correct the course of chronic disease.
The fields of integrative medicine and functional medicine hold alternative approaches to maintenance of good health and treatment of disease accountable and require scientific evidence for endorsement and promotion of novel perspectives and therapies.
Dr. Bray has no conflicts of interest with any of the content presented. The presentations are not being used to "recruit patients" as he is not accepting new patients at the time of talks. The lectures are being made available for free. These lectures were delivered with the generous donation of facilities by Gainesville Health and Fitness Center. The primary intent was for community education and are wholly not-for-profit. Every effort was made to give credit to content creators of the material included in these talks.
