The Scottsdale/Phoenix Functional Forum Meetup is a monthly gathering of the most forward thinking and collaborative health professionals in our community.

We gather around The Functional Forum to discuss health topics, cutting edge medical treatments, best practices for offering massive value in private practice, and more.

Develop a Local Community

Those of us, who seek the truth about health, also seek the camaraderie of one another. We share an energy, a knowing and a desire to inspire others to join us. We know we can go it alone, but sharing the space with others feels more awe-inspiring.

The Functional Forum is the world’s largest integrative medicine conference. Check out last months functional forum (here). It brings together the latest health news, functional medicine research, practice development and health technology in an upbeat, entertaining way. It curate’s the industry’s leading innovators in a mixed-media format that combines interviews, TED-style talks, videos, audience interaction, and music, all archived for free forever on their Youtube Channel.

Functional Medicine is Changing Healthcare.

Functional Medicine is changing the way we approach health, as a patient, as a lab and as a practitioner. If you’re not familiar with the terms Functional Medicine and root cause, check it out (here) and (here). We believe Functional Medicine holds the key to solving this global problem with its upgraded operating system that empowers the patient to play a role in their own health and addresses the root cause of chronic disease. This comes at an exciting time for functional and integrative medicine, not only clinically, but also in the innovative business models being developed around the country. With health politics raising more questions than answers and with technology changing the healthcare landscape for good, there has never been a more ripe time for health innovation.

Here’s How To START.

2017 Clinical Round-Up: From Genetics to Population Health

For our final Functional Forum of the year, we are showcasing some of the top clinical content from across all of our 2017 events. Our vision at the Evolution of Medicine is to provide a spark to inspire more practitioners to join the movement, throughout the content and worldwide communities and hope this does that.

2017 has been a big year for our clinical content, not only taking a metaphorical journey from inside the genes (Interpreting Your Genetics Summit) to population health (Journey to 100), but also a literally journey as we bring you content from Forums and speakers across the world. We know it's hard to keep up with all the content we create, so we wanted to bring together the year's highlights in one segment with a truly international flavor.

Kicking us off is Egyptian physician Heba El Nazer, MD, as she takes us through some tricky case studies (MS and Thyroid Disease) from the April Functional Forum from Royal Society of Medicine in London.

Then we hear from Janet Settle, MD sharing her 7 steps to Reversing PTSD that brings together novel therapies and time-tested integrative medicine approaches that underline the need for collaborative care. This session was filmed at Journey to 100 in Guernsey in June.

It has been a huge year from #1 NYT Best Selling Author Dr. Izabella Wentz and from the Boulder Forum she shares the "5 Stages to Hashimoto's Thyroiditis"From our Evolution of Environmental Medicine Forum Aviad Elgez, ND shares the five major environmental illness triggers, from mold to heavy metals, and how to differentiate them in clinical practice.

We will also take shorter clips from our Genetics Summit, including South African nutrigenomics expert Dr. Yael Joffe's live genetic consult with our host James Maskell as well as some of the best one-minute tips from the various conferences we have attended.
