161: Healing & Longevity through Functional Medicine with Sachin Patel

Sachin Patel is a functional medicine practice success coach, international speaker, and author. He believes that “The doctor is the future of the patient,” and that healthcare practitioners have a responsibility to keep people out of the medical system when possible, empowering them through education, self-care, and a new mindset.

Sachin founded the Living Proof Institute when he couldn’t find answers to his questions through conventional medicine. Exploring functional and lifestyle medicine dramatically changed his life, and he walked away from his formal training as a chiropractor to offer a different approach to patient care.

Today, Sachin joins the podcast to talk about the major problems he sees in the conventional healthcare system, how to integrate functional medicine into your healthcare practice, and why Sachin never wants to be retired in any conventional sense of the word.

In this podcast interview, you’ll learn:

  • Why walking away from his medical license gave Sachin the freedom to speak his truth and say what he believes needs to be said.
  • The basics of Sachin’s unique approach to functional medicine – and how he works to identify the root causes of his patients’ problems.
  • How you can use functional medicine in your daily life to better understand why you feel how you feel and improve your health outcomes.
  • Why Sachin has no desire to simply retire – and why he sees health as everything.
  • The powerful – and possibly strangest – thing that Sachin does for his health.
