Dr. Mark Hyman introduces "Functional Medicine" in this 19-minute video taken from a TedMed presentation. Dr. Hyman explains that modern medicine gets caught in a trap of prescribing medications for symptoms, rather than treating the underlying causes. Dr. Hyman lays out a "map" he uses with patients to address each of the systems in the body. Watch this to understand why The Daniel Plan follows his concepts.

Thank you for posting this! I feel blessed to have been working with a local naturopathic functional medicine doctor like Dr. Hyman ever since we moved to southern CA. He has helped our family in so many ways and we are grateful to him for the transformation it has made for us all.

Nowell: what is your doctor's name? I am looking for a good functional medicine doctor in the area. Thanks!

Hi Brandy:The Center for New Medicine in Irvine is a good option. I'm working on a story now about a patient who lived with severe abdominal pain for years, and never could get it diagnosed accurately. She went to see Dr. Thermos and within 60 days, she was feeling great! Also, if you'd like ongoing advice, both Dr. Amen and Dr. Hyman have online and nutrition counseling services reasonably priced. Look under "Tools and Resources."
