Tomorrow I will be in Carlsbad, CA at the 17th International Symposium on Functional Medicine, on “Confronting Cancer as a Chronic Disease”. I want to encourage you to watch a live lecture online on a revolutionary approach to cancer by one of the greatest medical thinkers of the 21st century, my mentor, Jeffrey Bland, PhD tomorrow morning, Thursday, May 20th at 8:30 a.m. Pacific time.
I will be sitting in the audience. You can join me. No cost. No travel. No expense. And you can learn from one of the greatest minds in medicine, how to protect yourself and your family from cancer.

We are at a moment in medical history that requires a new way of thinking to successfully address our global epidemic of chronic disease. Practitioners need a new set of lenses to interpret and act on clinical information. Functional Medicine provides those lenses, a new way of seeing the epidemic of chronic disease based on underlying causes, and treatments based on restoring balance within dysfunctional biological systems and networks. It focuses on treating the whole system, not just the symptoms. Applied in practice, Functional Medicine can more effectively prevent, treat and often cure chronic conditions, at lower cost, failed by our current paradigm.
This year's International Symposium on Functional Medicine on cancer as a chronic disease will be attended by practitioners representing 23 countries ranging from Croatia to Japan, Columbia to Finland.
Cancers as systemic functional diseases is a topic of critical importance to today's primary care providers, who will find nearly half their patients confronting cancer during their lifetimes. Due to the urgency of this year's Symposium topic, this year's introductory talk is open to the world as a live webcast. The Institute for Functional Medicine is thrilled to invite you, your friends, family, and colleagues to watch a free, live webcast of the cutting-edge presentation "Looking Anew at Cancer" by Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, CNS, which will address the mechanisms underlying primary cancer formation and growth and how these factors are addressed by various cancer prevention strategies and treatments.
Sign up at: http://functionalmedicine.org and join me on Thursday, May 20th from 8:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m. PST for the live webcast.
Please share this with your family, friends and colleagues! You could save a life.
