Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to present its next Functional Forum, which will explore endocrine and metabolic health. We will share conversations with two speakers from the upcoming Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute (PLMI) conference, Endocrine Typing: Connecting the Dots Between Toxin Load, Weight Loss Resistance and Hormonal Dysfunction.

Weight loss is a hot topic in American health care right now due to the obesity epidemic. For the first time in history, we also have pharmaceuticals, namely GLP-1 agonists, that are proving to be effective weight loss tools.

From a lifestyle, functional or integrative medicine perspective, clinicians must help patients who take these medications prevent or mitigate side effects and succeed with long-term weight management when no longer taking GLP-1 agonists.

For the best long-term patient outcomes, it is important to understand the biochemical or biophysical mechanisms that drive obesity. In this Functional Forum, we will focus on hormonal and environmental factors, such as toxins, that influence weight loss resistance and weight gain.

Joining us are two thought leaders who will speak at the PLMI conference. Deanna Minich, PhD is a preeminent expert on nutrition, a much-loved international speaker and an author of six consumer wellness books and numerous scientific publications. She offers deep wisdom on toxins, obesogens and nutritional biochemistry.

Jade Teta, ND is a leading educator who is well known for speaking about metabolic health. He has joined the Functional Forum before to share relevant and important insights with us. Dr. Teta is also an expert in human motivation and performance, which will be covered in detail during the March Functional Forum.

Please join us as we explore the connection between toxins, metabolic disorders and the endocrine system. We will come to a deeper understanding of how cellular dysfunction leads to obesity and work toward a more structured approach to long-term management of a healthy weight.
