November 6, 2014 at 7pm CT
Audio Interview: Registration Opening Tuesday, October 28

“The godfather of functional medicine elegantly explains the core tools to overcome the chronic ailments of modern society.” 
- Mehmet Oz, MD 

For decades, Dr. Jeffrey Bland has been on the cutting edge of functional medicine, which seeks to pinpoint and prevent the cause of illness, rather than treat its symptoms. Managing chronic diseases accounts for 75% of our total healthcare costs because rather than addressing their underlying causes, we mask illnesses with pills and temporary treatments. Worse, only treating symptoms leads us down the path of further illness.

In The Disease Delusion, Dr. Bland’s new book, he explains what functional medicine is, and what it can do for you. While advances in modern science have nearly doubled our lifespans in only four generations, our quality of life has not reached its full potential. Outlining the reasons why we suffer from chronic diseases like asthma, diabetes, obesity, arthritis, cancer and a host of other ailments, Dr. Bland offers achievable, science-based solutions that can alleviate these common conditions. The Disease Delusion offers a roadmap for a lifetime of wellness.
