Learn From the Pros
The “Information Age” has certainly made it easier for people to find the answers to their burning questions…unfortunately, it has also created a forum for massive misinformation.
Especially during times like these, it is crucial that you tune out the hype and listen to the experts. We have compiled a list of resources that we trust, and we hope that you do, too.

Functional Medicine and Podcasts
While we trust the science in the above government resources for learning more about the COVID-19 coronavirus itself, we promote a functional/integrative approach to nutrition and lifestyle for optimizing health and strengthening the immune system. At this time, there is no drug, cure or vaccine…but we are aware of things that have been helpful for other viruses and can support a healthy immune function.
The podcasts that we have linked below are some that we like to listen to for fun, but they have some great information – even before this virus – about hormones, healthy living, sleep, etc. These are things that we have been recommending all along! Here are a few of our favorite sources:
David Perlmutter, MD, FACN – A board-certified neurologist and fellow, and member of the Board of Directors of the American College of Nutrition. He is the author of “Grain Brain” and “Brain Wash” and does a Facebook live video on his page every day at 5 pm specifically about the coronavirus.
