How and why illness occurs, with Pete Williams

Is functional medicine the future of wellness? Founder of Functional Medicine Associates, Pete Williams, joins Liz for this podcast to discuss how this biology-based approach can deal with chronic disease and illness.

Pete talks through how and why illness occurs, diagnostic tests that fall outside of conventional medicine, and understanding barrier function for conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, and depression.

Liz and Pete also cover probiotics, prebiotics and postbiotics for gut health, the effects of declining oestrogen on the brain in menopause, and dealing with burnout.

Make sure to listen next week as Pete will be back to answer even more functional medicine questions.
