Imagining Integrative Healthcare, From the Inside Out (Season 2 Trailer)

May 3, 2022 | Podcast

​Season Two of Third Opinion MD launches on May 10, 2022. For this second season, the overall theme is the true integration of our healthcare system, from the inside out.

I’m excited about where this theme will take us! I’m bringing guests to share insights about how doctors are trained today, and give you an idea of how integrative healthcare can happen with how we train doctors.  I’ll be talking with an expert on how to take an integrative approach to trauma. 

And I’ll be digging deeper into the history of how we inherited the healthcare system we have, and why some medicine is considered traditional while other medicine is considered alternative. I will take a look at who decides which label (“traditional” or “alternative”) gets placed on certain types of medicine, and how a type of medicine is determined to be mainstream or fringe.

I’ll introduce you to the elegance of the principles that found Chinese medical practice and compare it to the Western medical philosophy. And of course, I look forward to continuing that scavenger hunt into my family history and discovering the potential we all have through the words of my mom and the words of my nephew.

Join me next week, when I have Alisha Harrington join me to talk about how doctors are trained today, as we take a look at the potential for integrative medical education.

Client Interview: What It’s Like to Create Your Health Strategy with Dr. Barbara de la Torre at Third Opinion MD

A 15-minute appointment with the doctor rarely allows you to discover the root behind the decisions you make with your health unless you are prepared. This is why I approach clients with a thorough curiosity about who they are, who they were, and who they wish to be in order to live a healthy and purposeful life. Strategy goes beyond the symptoms and diseases. It relieves the fear and stress that come with your health going out of balance. In this episode, I have the opportunity to sit with one of my clients to really talk through how we work on a Health Strategy Consult.
